Awesome game to play with 'non-gamers'. Very exploratory, very novel, very much the kind of experience that you can only get from a game.

This was a cute game. It was fun to run around and explore while slowly stacking things up to hey higher and higher. I did fail to find everything once but I went back and explored more and it was just cute and fun. The secret site that they give at the end was a cool reward. Welcome to the club. :)

Overall, i'd give it a 7/10. It's quite nice to mess around with. Give it a try.

Blueberry garden tease's the player's curiosity and is actually quite difficult. I'm entirely sure if you can win. I had a lot of fun trying. The game is just hard enough to you keep your interest, while not being very frustrating. Every time I play, I come a little closer to winning, but have never won. Can it be done?

I really didn't know what to make of this game. It played like a mushroom trip, and made about as much sense as one. I feel that style conquered coherence in this game, and am confused by it's win of Best Indie Game.

I wont go into much detail, but let it be said that there is no proper story. The game relies on "random" quirkiness to evoke some kind of humour, I guess. Like, spawning a block of cheese in a forrest and calling it "ironic".

I'm not saying it's a bad game, I'm saying I didn't get it. This game wasn't right for me, but that doesn't mean it isn't right for you.
