About This Game

This has got to be... The best game I've ever played!
How have I gone without playing this game before?
I am just speechless at how magnificent this game is.
Sometimes, this game haunts my dreams with its beauty.

Generally, I refrain from reviewing games.
As you may have noticed however, I MUST review this gem.
My life would be incomplete without the Vigil Experience(tm).
Every time I view the game in my library, I tear up a little.

So, for those of you wanting to buy this game, I leave you this:
Usually, take any review you read with a grain of salt.
Carefully read between the lines each for review, even this one.
Keep in mind, I'm not recommending this game.
Sorry reader, but read the first letter of every line.

This game definetly is.... Unique for sure. No other game quite has the gameplay or graphical stylings that this does. However it soon becomes apparent WHY no other game has these. The camera often hides vital gameplay elements or vital elements are obscured by other similar looking black and white pieces. The controls are confusing and just buggy, the story is... somewhere. No idea where but wherever it is, its consuming a large amount of LSD.

Just avoid.

You... probably don't want to buy this.

Crazy, upsetting, bemusing video "quirks" aside the game has a setting that is tedious within minutes, headache inducing cutscenes and nothing in particular to recommend it other than a unique art style that you can get perfectly well from the screenshots.

Stare, sigh, leave.

MINUSES:
- When I click on "Play", it sends me to buy "RIP - Trilogy™". But I already payed for this game, why do I need to pay for another game???
- I can't even launch this game!!!

P.S: If you ask me how and why I got 5 minutes playing, then I answer you I click on "Play", then "Library" (I did it approximately 100-150 times). Because, to write a review you need minimum 5 minutes playnig.
