Análises

“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.”

Acerca deste jogo

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 (www.aidforjapan.org.uk), a charity that helps children who lost their parents in the tsunami. The other half goes to Redr (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.

I bought this a while back due to the backstory on the game and finally played it tonight. It took about 12 minutes to play through and was basically a tribute to the loss brought about by the 2011 Tsunami in Japan. Just a very pretty, contemplative look at the wreckage of such a disaster, provided in minimalist fashion via shadows that dissipate into items on the beach, which in turn represent the people who lost their lives, which in turn become butterflies (in the game anyway) whose souls flitter across the sky. Since all the proceeds from the game go to two specific relief charities, I would consider it to be a good investment, and it is a brief and yet touching game experience.

First and foremost, this is not a game...per say...More like an interactive video awareness. It's purpose is to give some awareness and dedication to those who lost their lives in the March 11, 2011 tsunami. Some of the funds raised are said to go to help with the victims and devistation from this...As of this review I have not yet checked into that fact...just so we are clear on that matter. I however did go through the game to experience it. I did find it moving and emotional, as when you are in the video you are aware of it's purpose and there are parts that will touch your heart. I recommend this particular item as it is meant for a good cause and would be a nice addition to anyone's library as just to have a quick little reminder of how precious life can be and how quickly the opportunities pass us by to realize that...sometimes much too late...I hope that everyone reading this will give 9.03 a chance. :)

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

someday I will leave this world. there will be things I’ll leave behind. hopefully there will be things I am proud of, but besides that, there will just be… things. people live through their stuff, it’s our tools that make us human. it’s not just humanity that’s represented though. they become symbols, related to the action, but related to the person. a photo album from the deceased piques a kind of complete mystery, combined with a subtle reverence and awe. that is, as you hold their proof of existence, you know that their existence is no more. it’s not a conflicting emotion, though it may be one that’s hard to comprehend and process. grief is straightforward, of course, but what is grief for those who you don’t know? it’s not personal, if you can share the weight, it’s an imagined understanding. an implicit one, driven by empathy and caring, not by reason or knowledge.

and there were thousands of deaths. I’m hard pressed to process a thousand of anything. a death of one is a tragedy, so we say, and the cliché finishes while mocking statistics. a death of a thousand is still the death of one. it’s the death of one a thousand times. a thousand rifts, a thousand displacements, and hundreds of thousands affected indirectly. we who are living cannot comprehend death. all we understand is loss. the loss of life is the battering of the unknown with the knowledge of loss. so if we can imagine one, if we can imagine one out of many, if we can imagine being in another’s place, we can feel that loss. we cannot feel that death. the purpose for mourning is acknowledgment and it’s a small thing the living can do. because things aren’t the only proof of existence, because things are only tools. most of us shudder at our own death, some of us may wonder what the point of all of this is, but we’re lucky to be alive.

9.03m humanizes a statistic with identifiable proofs of existence. undeniable, warm symbols, such as a wedding ring or a teddy bear. common things with an absolute use. in reminding that the departed had something which use we intrinsically understand, we’re forced to imagine the item in use, we are forced to imagine the life they led, even if it’s just imagination, even if it’s only a nod to the departed. for the same reason we cannot understand death, many of us cannot understand great loss. our empathy is backed by little experience. I don’t know what it’s like to be rocked by a disaster. I see the symbols and imagine the possibilities and that’s all I can offer to the departed. it’s all I can offer to anyone I don’t know.

backed by adeptly performed and composed piano, if limited in scope, a calming yet melancholy blue palette, and soft models coming off as a child’s rendition of the wind waker, 9.03m is artistically stunning. all you do, however, is walk in a straight line until you greet a shade, who leaves behind a proof of existence, which you examine. there isn’t a lot to grasp, yet everyone understands loss.

You know that feeling after seeing a film or reading a book that effects you so much you just have to sit there and do nothing? I've rarely felt that with a game, but this game, that ending, I cannot even begin to desicribe how I felt. The developers met their goal to humanize disaster statics very well, using a beautiful minimalist art style and sound so focus in entirely on the people in the story.
I have have read complaints that the game is too short, but you have to remember the goal of the developers, and that it is raising money for charity. It's less of a game, its an interactive story or art. Personally, I belive the length fits in with the goal and humanisation, and the feeling of loss of time for the victims and families.

It is sensitive, thought provoking, and will stay with me for a long time.

This game is a very beautiful and touching game that will amaze you all the way through and in the end make you cry a bit. I highly reccomend this. There is no need for any story naration it gives you the story with little words but the story will touch you.

I went into this game clueless, however i did know a few things prior to playing this Namley that it is closer to art than a video game/. Poeple wishing to buy this game at this point know it is a virtual art instalment, due to the tags and/or reviews, so this review is specifically aimed at those poeple who want a VAI

If you are looking to play a game which you can sink your time into, you should not buy this.

While i was playing 9.03m, i was confused with the purpose of the game. I found myself desperatly looking for symbolism, to finaly grasp the story/message it had to tell, but alas i could not find it until the very end of the game. I was dissapointed, to say the least.
9.03m has a beautiful art style and an elegant piano soundtrack (which i wish was for sale).
However, in the spirit of not spoiling the VAI, I cannot say why I ended up being satisfied.

9.03m is a touching VIA and definetly among the top of my list, I reccomend it to everyone wishing to experience a story, rather than a game.

Additonally, most of the profits made by the company go to a charity.

It only takes 20 minutes to complete, but it is a touching experience that will stir emotions. Plus, the proceeds go to charity, so it is worth the asking price.

You follow butterflies on a beach and interact with little objects that shadowy figures leave behind. Sounds simplistic, and that is what makes the game special.

After playing 9.03m, you will no longer view tragic losses in numbers, but remember the unique individuals who make up those numbers.

I find it odd to say that I enjoyed this, given that it is essentially a memorial. It is beautiful and moving; I am glad that I have had the experience.

When purchasing 9.03m, it is important to note that it is not a game in the traditional sense. Rather, it harnesses the power of Unreal Engine 3 to create a tribute using interactive media for those lost during the 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami. Where it lacks in complexity or replay value, 9.03m's simplicity allows for an appeal to the player's emotions. With proceeds from this work going to support those affected by the disaster, it's a hard argument not to experience this game.
