Coil is an experimental "autobiographical" game that plays out more like a song or painting then an actual "game". I was basically trying to create an experience that put the player into an open minded space and let them question not only what the game was about, but what a game can actually be.

About the Game

Coil is an experimental "autobiographical" game that plays out more like a song or painting then an actual "game". I was basically trying to create an experience that put the player into an open minded space and let them question not only what the game was about, but what a game can actually be.

Coil uses mouse movements only, no keys or clicking is involved at all.

Great Intriguing Story with Soundtrack. Very Abstract. However, multiple tried is needed to know what you need to do. Overall it is a fun free game! :D

Coil is a great indie game, its really short and tells a story that means something a little different to each person. The game really is what you make of it. Art wise it seems to stand on its own and has decent sound. I recommend playing through the game yourself atleast once, you will most likely have at least a bit of fun playing,

A very brief demo. I found the soundtrack irritating. The gameplay was also very simplistic. The written parts were mildly amusing but I don't see anything special here which hasn't been done before. I feel as though the creator of this could have expressed themselves much better within another medium. For example a short animation or a short story.

This is truly amazing. This game...I can;t even describe it. Just take the ten minutes and play it for yourself.
