About the Game

Hippocampal is a satiric contemplative game.
- Satiric because we are mocking the hero, game characters, movies, comic books and video games we liked. And also the ones you like. Basically everything that tells you to be what you do not want to be.
- Contemplative because you just have to walk through this world to understand how it works.

Story
You are an astronaut (M.kurt.C) taking some time off in orbit, enjoying your holidays, when suddenly from out of nowhere monsters crash into you and send you back to earth…
What are you going to do? Take revenge for this cosmic attack? Find ways to keep relaxing? Prevent those creatures from attacking earth? It all depends on the trauma of the crash, right?

Game does not run.
Shows splash screen and then leaves.
Game specs state that DirectX 9 is required but in actual fact, the splash screen says Dx11 so that must be the problem.
More lies.

Destilled meaningless cryptic bull'.
Inflict it on your enemies, annoying siblings, and that one friend that owes you money.
You might get some fun out of giving it to someone as a joke, just don't buy it with the intention of enjoying it yourself.

So let´s bring some light into the mysterious dark that is "Hippocampal: The White Sofa": It is a completely self-aware and funny exploration game that has a VERY special, quiet and somehow hidden kind of humour that I enjoyed and that mixes up with goofy moments whenever you accomplish a target. It´s very short and the atmosphere is unique, yet it may not be worth the asked price. The gameplay is simple at best, confusing at first, but once you ge the grip of it it somehow "works". The physics are neat, the story is rubbish but the entertaining sort and while I obviously can´t recommend it to everyone, I had a decent enough time with it and if you enjoy experimental games and want to know what the hell this actually is, then you may grab it if it ever comes on sale. Oh, and if you know Tale of Tales and find em ridiculous this is THE game for you :D

Assuming you like abstract indie art games and walking simulators, i would say that Hippocampal is one of the better ones. there are some truly pretentious and unintresting art games out there. but in my opinion, this is one of the good ones.
i recommend playing this alone at night, tired or slightly drunk, in order to get the most psychadelic yet focused experience.
the game feels like a fever dream, very surreal and ambient. it's great.
