I haven't seen much about these points yet, I'm just adding to others' reviews.

This one's about solving some puzzles in a hyper dimensional alien space to turn some machines on after the apocalypse.
Graphical design is going for minimalistic abstract representation of stone buildings, so I'm certain there's less than 100 textures in the entire game. Explorable empty space is used to show importance of an object in the room, and over-saturated lighting is used almost randomly, but consistently through a room.
Sound design follows graphical design, and follows a theme of emptiness and alienation in an abstract world.
The physics and control are poor, but only because they are unnecessary for the gameplay.
Gameplay itself is puzzle solving in insolation, but the main story puzzles are simple. It's a small game that takes time to explore for 100% completion. The 100% content beyond the main story puzzles just involves finding hidden things and backtracking after hitting an obvious switch to find a matching shape somewhere.

After breaking it down like that, I think it'd make for a really nice modern art machinima.
As far as being a game, it can be depressing for a few reasons. That's why I recommend it.

A friend of mine showed me this game a while back, he bought it for me and I'm glad he did. I really enjoyed the puzzles and how it looked, especially the grain filter, that gave it a really interesting feel. The game is not horror at all, though it can be a bit spooky due to the environment and the sounds, but thats what I loved about it. The game also had a Myst feel to it, if anyone reading this actually knows what that game is. Sure this game may seem strange at first, but give it a try, you might actually like it! Definitely worth the price.

So, I'd probably have played this more if it wasn't filled with the creepiest, most unnerving music I have ever heard. Also, I wouldn't have called this 'elegant' in any way shape or form.

In Kairo, you solve ancient MEH-chanical puzzles in a minimalistic, highly abstract, Minecraft-like blocky world with ambient background music.

Stylistically, the game is decent, despite the Stone-Age graphics, but the puzzles are mostly unoriginal and repetitive. Most of the time, you activate mechanical contraptions (move around blocks, balls, light up ancient symbols) to get the correct order / combination / angle etc. That kind of stuff. Too much of it, and not very well done either.

Chill environment including sounds/music, challenging puzzles that vary so you aren't constantly doing the same thing, some trippy environments.

I really enjoyed this game. Felt original and is definitely worth the price point.

Kairo is a slightly flawed gem of a first-person walking and exploration game. It requires a bit of investment to stay interested in the beginning, but if you're into discovery and piecing together parts of a mystery, it eventually rewards that patience.

In the beginning, you appear in Kairo with no explanation of who you are, where you are, what its or your purpose is, and no apparent indication of what you should do next, other than possibly head towards the one visible structure in the distance. Hints as to possible answers to all of those questions gradually unfold as you proceed through the three main levels of the game. Ultimately, the game never concretely answers any of those questions, but gives you enough (especially if you're determined to hunt down and unlock all of its sometimes-obscure riddles) to put together your guess, your interpretation of what you've just been through. For some this may be frustrating, not to know the absolute official canon truth of the matter, but I see it as one of the game's strengths in creating a real sense of mystery. This is not your typical berk-without-a-past-uncovers-his-past story—however much you discover, you remain without a past.

The game suffers from some minor flaws in execution—the occasional video clipping problem in tight spaces, oddly getting stuck on stairs and needing to jump to continue, footstep sounds that are weirdly unsynchronized to your movement—that reflect a slight lack of polish. For me, these minor issues pale in comparison to what the game achieves artistically. It manages to create, through the grand scale of its environments, the use of colour, and its moody, atmospheric soundtrack, a feeling of being very small and alone in an intimidating, unknown world which is somehow broken and needs fixing. The puzzles involved in the fixing range from trivial to frustratingly obscure, but for the impatient there are guides and walkthroughs, and for the determined, there's a great sense of accomplishment in untangling the secret.

Good puzzles. Some are a bit abstract and take a bit more of a think to figure out but are still solvable. Also the art direction is great

Rewarding puzzle game. If you try it and you can't figure out what to do, just use your observation skills to get you started. It's as simple as that. Best played with something to write down things on ;)

while fundementally 'fine' if you want a game that is well built with care in both enviroment and sound design don't pick up this game. a lot of people tend to hand wave these things saying the 'experience' is worth it, but honestly I couldn't even sit through ten minutes of the game with how choppy the controls, enviroments and the sound was. one particuler grating thing was no matter if you were walking, running, or crawling along, the same pace of steps would constantly sound out, and there isn't much in the way of audio options to help eliviate that. if you really want to experience the game but that sound awful to you, just mute the game and put on some music, or rainymood cause honestly the music wasn't anything special.

You have to go into this with a certain mindset. This is more Tarkovsky's Solaris than Soderbergh's. Put aside an evening, make a hot cup of tea, put on some headphones, sit back and relax. Enter this experience not expecting a narrative to hold your hand through it; like a comfy blanket, take your time, squirm into it. Don't feel bad about looking up the answers to the puzzles, if you need to; they're not the point. Appreciate the scale and breadth of the architecture, that's the point.

As the experience progresses, let the sense of dread settle in, as the isolation and starkness wash over you. If you take it that way, you will love it.

Kairo.. If modern "art" would have a game, this would be it.

Contents of the game: Modern "art," some puzzles, grain shader, a lot of empty space, awkward level transitions, annoying controls, player character that gets stuck on walls.

Don't get me wrong. I love puzzles and abstract and bizarre worlds, but this game just isn't what I expected.

The puzzles are not even puzzles, you don't even understand anything at the end, this game is only about learning how to make borring games and walking and walking with ugly texture!

As a puzzle-lover, I was really looking forward to this game since so many reviews compare it to other games I rather enjoyed, such as Anti-Chamber. However, I only got an hour into this game and was completely bored by it.

The graphics look like they were made in the mid-90s; things like the original Unreal had higher poly counts than this does, and more graphical cohesion. Just about everything is done with blocks and the textures, in-as-much as they are even used, seem to be just tossed on to objects as almost an after-thought. Even "water" is just a bunch of disconnected rectangles. Rooms have seemingly random color selections, with almost everything being very monotone (a violet room, a red room, a grey room, etc.) There is no way to know if the fog means you'll fall, or you can walk on it (like the intro area). In fact, there's no way to know if a block is meant to be walked on or not except to try and see if you go through it or not.

Gameplay is very simplistic. You can move, move faster (run) and jump and that is all of the controls. They have the option to do this all with the mouse, but since the game doesn't bind the mouse cursor, this doesn't work well with my 3 monitor set up since I jump out of the game the next time I click to start walking after turning around.

Like everything else, the puzzles are very minimalistic. The ones I could find were very easy to solve. However, several of them you cannot even tell if they are puzzles or not... or even what you should be doing.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=672171036
For example, in one (red) room in the second area, there are a bunch of pedestals that make sounds. If you look up, you see stars above them that have lines drawn on them from the last 4 pedestals... and no indication of what you should do. It has a triangle in the middle that is aligned and shaped without matching the stars, so there is no indication which of the many triangle shapes you should be making, or if that is even the correct thing to do. I spent probably 20 minutes making various triangles in that room, to no avail.

In another area, there were what looked like a lot of pods that had screens on them. Most of the screens had static, but one showed a low-res version of what you were seeing, and a couple others showed something else. The significance of this place was totally lost on me.

Also hidden in the game are tiny symbol things you can collect for... no known reason at all. They seem to largely be hidden in various rooms, so trying to collect those turns into the "look very closely at every wall from every angle" sort of thing... it was getting tedious.

The "world" is also very minimal. It is just a bunch of separate "rooms" with portals connecting them. There is no real plot to be found, no idea why any of this exists, who you are supposed to be, or what the point is to "solving" the puzzles. It felt pointless, and not really rewarding for solving anything.

Generally, I'm ok with just standing on a spot or walking through the whole game if I'll have a clue of what is going to happen next. I just expect a game to communicate with me one way or another.

Kairo is basically like trying to make a conversation with a blind, deaf and mute person. Because of the absence of communication, I'd call Kairo a no-go. Ftr, this is not my first time with the genre.

Gave me a little headache.

2/10.

Great game : good puzzles, easy movement and manipulation, terrific atmosphere, mind blowing music, achievements, and a story that is uncovered fragment by fragment but seemingly and teasingly never quite finished. It holds the attention and invites you to explore and ferret around for more answers and discoveries. I love a mystery. All round very satisfying.
The really good thing for me is that so far I have finished the main game, but there are still quite a few achievements to attain, and I can re-enter Kairo at leisure and enjoy myself.

I buyed this game as an terror game due to my (I think is called) kenophobia. And you can bet it did work. Some particular places and those TV Screens with random-yet-creepy-whatever it was totally making me nervous.

Anyway, this is my very particular case apparently.

Pros:

The atmosphere.

Puzzles not that easy, but not that hard.

Unless you're using a Pentium or a fossil, this game will run in your system.

Cons:

Some collisions need to be fixed.

In my case, there is zones which makes you need to restart the entire game if you didn't played in a while and don't remember where did you had to go to restart your journey.

If you're scared about open spaces or the essence and context of the "void"/"nothing", keep that in mind before you play this.

P.S. For some reason the time played showed is way lesser than the actual :\

Kairo is a game that, in my opinion, does everything it sets out to do right. It begins with some incredible ambient and atmospheric music which suggests a vast expanse of void filled with unidentifiable abstract buildings, shapes, devices, and questions. Kairo then fills that space with those exact objects and questions and asks the player to proceed with very little guidance or suggestion. I truly love when a designer gives their players an open world to explore with a suggested, yet vague, goal and then allows the player to explore that world in their own way in order to pursue that goal.

Kairo, in its most simple description, is a first-person, exploration, puzzle-platformer. Kairo, in a bit more detailed examination, is an ambient exploration of an alien landscape, filled with color and sound in which the player can lose themselves within the interaction, and wonder that the game offers. It's hard to detail exactly why I appreciate Kairo so much; it may be the unreal atmosphere and beautiful soundtrack, the open world exploration, the lack of handrails and guidance, the somewhat creepy atmosphere, the lush color and abstract landscapes, but I suspect that it's all of those things working in unison to create a wonderful and unique experience.

Highest recommendations for those who enjoy first-person exploration games and puzzles.

Kairo is an amazing trip through the inner workings of a developer's mind. I bought this game on a whim, knowing it was VERY cheap at the time and rated positively. I was not disappointed. I was greeted with an interesting, explorable environment and I found myself wasting time running around in some of the 'filler' areas, simply having fun with the terrain. It is a beautiful game, and has very fitting, calm music. I would say this game is worth buying for anyone looking for a beautiful game that will take you on an adventure like that of a book.

It's an interesting and artfully composed game that will wow you from time to time with its visuals. Unfortunately, it's also pretty plodding and slow. The puzzles are often unclear and will leave you wishing the game were only about exploration and mystery, rather than the vague (but simple and gorgeous) dungeon crawl that circles the visuals. If there were a half n half "recommend" button, I'd choose that. But there isn't.

I unfortunately got this game just days before it went on sale, but at full price it still felt like an amazing deal. Imagine LSD: Dream Emulator but texturally subdued and transformed into a relatively linear puzzle game, with just a dash of the Assassin's Creed 2 glyph sequences for flavor.

The graphics and designs of the game are unimpressive, but not uninentionally so. The minimalism of both the visuals and the music create a complexly desolate atmosphere, and, like LSD, the emptiness of the world never comes off as a result of laziness but of tasteful restraint. It's easy to fill a puzzle game with distracting elements that intrude on the experience as a whole, but it's refreshing to see one that makes an enjoyable experience using only movement controls and basic graphics.

In the vein of games like Fract OSC, Antichamber, The Devil's Tuning Fork, and Against the Wall, this is a game that does not hold the player's hand at any point and does not even provide any form of communication or instruction to the player until the ending, allowing for total uninterrupted exploration, and the game is intuitive enough to keep going at a steady pace regardless. This makes sense in an internal way, as well, as the game is set in a long abandoned universe in which the player is a complete stranger.

The ending is a bit cheesy and the sequences that reveal the world's story are unoriginal at best. I was also unimpressed by the various photographs and videos that attempted to connect Kairo to Earth, which appear incessantly throughout the game just incase the message wasn't received the first few times. In a puzzle game that involves some amount of thought in order to progress, this felt patronizing and undermined the feeling that the game developer trusts the player to make the connections themselves. The alien and deserted tone of the game was also diminished by this forced message, which left me wishing that the game had remained mysterious and totally detached from the real world like it initially appeared. It seems as if the game was created first, but in the later stages of development the developer decided to tack a deeper story onto the game, conflicting with the original vision for the project.

Bland connotations aside, I didn't expect to spend nine hours in this game, and it says something about Kairo that I can spend a day backtracking through every area multiple times in order to unlock the achievements and the secret ending and still have fond memories of the experience (even if the secret ending was a massive disappointment).

Ultimately, I would recommend this game if you want something that has a poweful and moving atmosphere, but if you're just looking for a puzzle game then look elsewhere, as the puzzles here aren't as memorable as the overarching experience.

Warning: Can cause motion sickness. Can not even imagine playing this with Oculus Rift, considering how motion sick I got playing on a console in ten to fifteen minutes segments.

Interesting concept. Abandoned? quantum distorted world of unknown purpose and design. As the player traverses through this alien world? they complete tasks to restart machinations in three locations: the "lighthouse/power" room, the "engine" room, and the "control" room. Why? and for what purpose? is left for the player to decide but the end shows the revilitalization of the planet Earth. Many questions are left open, most starting with W, as in What happened? Why? When? Where is kairo? What is kairo? But the most intriguing question I find is Who is the player really? An unknown entity? A survivor? An explorer? A tasked performer of intergalaxic goodwill?

Gameplay: Walking simulator with point and click elements, no inventory, just "touch" to perform certain tasks. A puzzle game that focuses on solving how to restart the massive machinations of world building proportions.

There are extra "finds" to be looked for in each area: 6 runes and 1 "vision" puzzle to find and solve. Once all of these are found in every location a "secret" ending is revealed.

A very unique game with a very unique perspective, and more questions then answers.

Playing Kairo is like visiting a memory of someone else's dream about strange buildings, factories and temples.

Its very simlified and plain style gives the game this alien and mysterious atmosphere that I enjoyed very much.
