Incredible game... for 10 hours I was on and inside Mars.

-Immersive exploration
-Unique game mechanics
-Great, thoughtful main character : Liang (& voice acting)
-Amazing soundtrack
-The more you progress, the more the ecosystem & all you discover make sense.

When I left the game, I felt I had really been on Mars.

Loved it so much.

Simple, relaxed game 7/10

Pros:
1. Nice atmosphere
2. Unique gameplay
3. Nice sci-fi feel overall
4. Easy and smooth controls

Cons:
1. Odd transition screens
2. Gameplay is lacking
3. Dialogue and voice acting is only ok
4. Boring soundtrack

Overall, it was an easy enough game that I found relaxing. Not a lot of depth here but that's not always needed.

Great game, all around. The art took me some time to get used to. The environments get more interesting as things go. Great soundtrack, good dialogue, and really interesting mechanics to the world that are satisfying to observe and manipulate.

This is a game that provides an original experience - it's about growing and sustaining an ecosystem (I don't know why it's tagged as a platformer. You can fly, so there's no platforming element whatsoever). As you explore you'll encounter a number of different plant-like creatures, each with its own behaviors and method of reproduction. You have to figure out how each plant works on your own; there's not a lot of direct explanation, and this discovery aspect is the main draw of the game. Once you've got an idea of how things work, you can decide which plants to grow where in order to revive each area of the cave.

The downside is that it's not all that well designed. The interactions between the lifeforms aren't very complicated, and growing the plants requires too much manual interaction, rather than organizing the environment so that it works on its own, like an ecosystem should. Still, it's worth checking out if you're interested in an experience that you haven't had before.
