“It’s beautiful. It’s tear-jerking. Simply writing about it does not do it justice.”
5/5 – TwoDashStash

“9.03m’s quiet approach exposes the limitations of “character development” and reflects adult experience. But the most powerful part of 9.03m is its ending. How many times can we say that about a video game?”
10/10 – Fate of the Game

“It’s moving, it’s gorgeous, and if you don’t have the feels yet, you’ll get them. I won’t say any more, but 9.03m‘s ending will stick with you for a long time.”

À propos de ce jeu

9.03m, is a short, first person, art/empathy game for PC. Not a game in the traditional sense of the word; it aims to humanise, and remember the victims of the 2011 Japanese tsunami. The media is quick to put figures to death tolls in such disasters, and 9.03m tries to remind people of the individuals behind those figures.

9.03m is set on Baker Beach in San Francisco, where debris from the tsunami has washed ashore in the years following the tsunami.

To play, you must find the butterflies.

All royalties (as of 19/12/2013) are donated to charity. Half of all received Space Budgie royalties go to Aid For Japan (http://www.aidforjapan.org.uk), a charity that helps children who lost their parents in the tsunami. The other half goes to Redr (http://www.redr.org.uk) a charity that helps in disaster scenarios.

In memory of those who died in the 2011 Japanese Tsunami.

Proceeds go to charity and it is a short but touching experience, the music is really nice and relaxed it really fits good of creating the atmosphere.

A nice piece of media remembering the people that were lost.

What this game lacks in gameplay, it makes up for in feels. The music and art style really come together to set the perfect mood to bring a tear to your eye. These are the games I point to when people say the video games aren't an art form.

if it can make you feel... it is art

A beutiful piece of interactive art, the art and music are masterfully done. I'd highly recommend buying this even if you aren't a fan of art to help support the two wonderful charities this game has been donating the proceeds from this game to...

NOTE: I downloaded this game for free at one point when it was free. Since then it has raised its price to $1, with the understanding that half goes to a charity. People have raised questions about the legitimacy of this charity, but its price and this "charity offer" did not affect my review.
Okay, I know I'm not recommending this, so I anticipate downvotes, but I judge projects based on their goals. The goal of this game is to "humanise and remember" the victims. To do this, you walk from item to item, objects left behind by those who died, and examine them until a butterfly appears, leading the path to the next object. This happens perhaps six times and then the game ends with another brief cutscene. Looking at objects left behind can tell you a lot about the people who left them, but i didn't feel that way with this game. They're all very low-poly and contain no material that would teach one about the people involved, or fulfill the game's goal of humanising them. Beyond that, you walk slowly on a low-poly, two color beach. Because you are to follow a set path and theres no real reason to explore, it isn't really even interactive- there are no choices to be made. Neither is there any randomness, as in Dear Esther. So, as art, it kind of fails as well- the choice to make a small empathic project a game means that less money can be spent on the surroundings. If it were a video, (which it basically is, as there is no room for player incentive or experimentation,) the polygonal nature of the surroundings and the repetition would doom it. So, in my book, that dooms the game as well. It's only really about the victims of the tsunami because the game tells you it is, to be honest.
If you feel like feeling sad, this game might make you feel sad. That's not enough for my personal recommendation.

9.03am is not a game byt a reminder of the 2011 Japanese tsunami. It's very short but very well made and 100% of the profits go to charity. It is good to remeber what has happend in 2011 and this game helps us see how many people have sufferd in the tsunami that hit japan. Every one should expirance this "game".

9.03m is not a game.
I think of this more as an interactive video.

9.03m is a "game" dedicated to all the people's lives lost on the March 11th, 2011 tsunami that hit Japan.

It's really short, but combined with some really touching music pieces and really good looking visuals, I would recommend picking this up, as it can bring a tear to your eye and it can be very relaxing.

Playing this in an angry mood can soothe me, honestly.

Straight up, 10/10

9.03m starts out with a simple objective of ''find the butterflies'' however as you find more and more of them you realise the gravity of what happened that day in japan. When you finally do find the last butterfly you are shown a simple image that will remind you that everyone who has lived, is living and whoever will live has just a unique of a life as your's with hopes dreams and struggles just as you do. I keep this game installed as a simple reminder of that fact.

English version

A game that surely will make you ponder and think, think in those people that died in that tsunami. This is the only game that made me cry. If you are thinking in buy it, JUST BUY IT! And the best thing is that this is a donation, to repair that place, I know that was 4 years ago, but I know that if you buy it, your money will be a help for those persons affected by the tsunami. Please buy it.

Versión en Español:
Un juego que seguramente te hará reflexionar y pensar, pensar en esa gente que murió en ese tsunami. Este es el único juego que me hizo llorar. Si estas pensando en comprarlo, SÓLO COMPRALO! Y la mejor cosa es que esto es una donación, para reparar ese lugar afectado, Lo sé fue hace 4 años, pero sé que si lo compras, tu dinero sera una ayuda para esas personas afectadas por el tsunami. Por favor compralo.

I might seem cruel when I write this, and I apologize. I admire the developer for making a game to express their loss. I love the fact all the money the developer makes from the game goes to charity. I really appreciate the fact the game is on Steam, to raise both awareness and funds for the charity.

What I didn't enjoy was the game itself. I bought this in a charity bundle, and absolutely knew what I had signed up for when I finally launched 9.03m. But to be honest, I never really like these sorts of games. Walking down a beach and looking at objects I find isn't my idea of fun in a game.

On the other hand, 9.03m is really visually appealing, more so than Dear Esther or even Proteus in my eyes. Everything is really mellow and soft. The music and audio design was perfectly calm and thoughtful. I totally recommend people buy this game to help support charity, but don't expect to have fun.

This isn't a game, more of a tribute to the tsunami that hit Japan 11/3/2011. It's beautiful to watch, beautiful to listen too and a fantastic way to tribute such a horrid event. It's only short but it's not at all expensive, give it a go.

cute, purple, and sparkly butterflies! sweet!

I really liked the experience and atmosphere of this game. It lasts no longer than 30 minutes, but it's an intriguing experience with cool calming colours. I would not purchase this game if you are not fond of conceptual artwork games/experiences. I would play this game again, to experience the game environment.

I really like this game, and I found the sound track to be absolutely beautiful. The environment in game is serene. This game is dedicated to the victims and families of the devastating tsunami.

Doesn't last long, probably 15 min; and pretty simple to play. The ending is beautiful, but the dedication is what really got me.

I wanted to like this game, but ultimately I can't recommend it. Not judging it for its short length or simplistic style, which are fine for something in this genre, but rather because it didn't have the necessary depth for what it was aiming to achieve.

Get this if you want to support the charity or are just too curious to pass it up, but be warned that if you're expecting great things from some of the other reviews you might end up disappointed.
