"Advice for playing Starseed Pilgrim: As long as you still have questions, continue."
Jonathan Blow

"Unfortunately, you cannot talk about Starseed Pilgrim, because that would spoil it for so many others. There’s unwritten rules at play. But it’s so open to discussion between two or more journeyers who find themselves at similar junctions."
Indie Statik

"It’s OK to feel lost, it seems to suggest, because it’s the only way to feel the intoxicating effect of discovery. I became so angry with Starseed Pilgrim because it purposely allows you, encourages you even, to feel lost.

-Quick Review-
Starseed Pilgrim is an Indie Puzzle game developed by Droqen and released in 2013. The most important feature of Starseed Pilgrim is that you figure out how to progress through the puzzles yourself, if you're looking for some basic tips I will reveal some in the rest of my review. (Nothing game changing, just the stuff you'll figure out for yourself. I'll use spoiler tags though.)

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: There really isn't a story in Starseed Pilgrim, if there is any type of story it's each time you change characters... or character suits? Personally stories drive me to complete the game because I want to know how the game ends and what happens at the end... so in Starseed Pilgrim I didn't have that motivation.

Gameplay: The mechanics in Starseed Pilgrim are the winning factor... well to be more specific it's learning how to work with the mechanics, You're basically a space farmer... “space” being that white void surrounding the small patch of land you plant on. And “Farmer” being you plan different seeds that do different things, one you can harvest to get seeds (the mechanic I needed to look up a guide to figure out), some grow tall, some grow big, some grown out, some let you jump higher, etc.
The problem sets in after you've figured out the mechanics... Unfortunately since the story isn't driving the game, I felt like I was repeatedly rubbing my face against a cheese grader trying to grind the game out to get seeds to build my way to the next island platform.
While initially it was fun and exciting to see an island off in the distance, the reward for getting to one was last luster at best.

Achievements: There are no steam achievements for Starseed Pilgrim. It's quite possible sometime achievements could be added to the game... which would then force achievers like myself to completely finish the game... on the on the bright side I'd get that "motivation" to complete the game that I was talking about.

Price: Starseed Pilgrim is priced at $6.00, while I won't say the price is unreasonable, I like to spend an hour on a game for every dollar I spend.

Conclusion: In conclusion; the Story wasn't really existent. the Gameplay was fun to learn, but after learning there was nothing else to drive the game forward for me. There are no Steam Achievements. The price was fair. I recommend this game to people who enjoy figuring out puzzles mostly on their own, I feel like this is a certain flavor of game that you either love or don't care for.

Very clever game. Something worth figuring out. I can't remember how much I payed for it but it was probably worth it.

Intresting game that I haven't figured out yet and since I do keep returning it can't be a total waste? You need to try it a few times to find out for yourself. I'd recommend a sale or bundle.
