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.

Awful game. Every in-game video tries to change the screen resolution, and due to a bug the subtitles are not displayed.

The gameplay is pretty bad, slow and boring. Every time you click on something you must wait for an animation to finish. I don't want to play this game again.

Avoid at all costs!

Horribly made.
Cutscenes didn't work, subtitles didn't work, it lagged like a ♥♥♥♥♥, camera angles took up to 7 seconds to change perspective, clues didn't work and the controls were just so bad.
It's a shame really because I seriously dig the artstyle of this game.

I don't get this game in the end. It's too indy to understand but the art in game is good, combined of contrast and minimalist concepts resulting in beautiful graphic. This game requires a trick to play cutscenes which you had to put Alt + Enter in the game and then it will run perfectly.

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.
