Time played vs. Price paid; This game has the potential to be the highest valued item in your Steam Library.

I'm sure there are people out there trying, but I certainly won't be putting anywhere near the 150,000 hours necessary to come close with a "normal" game.

It was a monday evening. My girlfriend threw plates and glasses at me. Screamed at me. It all seemed hopeless.
It's true. I didn't put much effort into our relationship lately. How should I? My job took me 11 hours per day. After that, I was too exhausted to go out with her or do anything else. The only thing I had as a personal shelter was my computer. With all my games.
I've spent some money here on steam during the winter sales. Too much monay, she said over and over again, throwing more stuff at me.
It went for hours, the appartment looked like a battlefield.

"If you spend one more Dollar on a game, I'll be gone", she said one last time.

So I got this fine peace for $0.99.
Totally worth it.

More depth and content than Starwars Battlefront, and that for just 99 cent, Macklemore would be proud

It is not a game - it's an experience. Great value for only $0.99! It's fun just seeing all the weather and the world around you.

Also, I suggest checking out some Guides for this game so you can find out the secrets. Each botton on th keyboard makes a different sound, so you can make your own music! Also, there are some special combinations you can do if you press the right keys.

Definitely recommended.
