About This Game

TRIP is a self-described "artware"

A 3D art platform to be periodically updated with virtual art installations
( 3D explorable art sets )
These virtual sets will feature works and music by the artist
as a theme, aesthetic, or idea solidified in 3D form and fully explorable.

TRIP is for those looking for an artistic and abstract experience without the demand for an objective.

Here are some screens from the upcoming content batch

Quite possibly the worst "game" I have ever played.
Makes no sense, no goal, no guide, no instructions, basic controls, terrible graphics and sounds.

Title of this... walking simulator is apt. It really is a trip. An LSD trip that's creepy, wild and unexpectly fun.

Thumbs up. Be sure to play it with friends for extra WTF!

A friend gifted me this game. I'm not sure if it was a joke or not.

You could get the same, if not better, experience by visiting Second Life. And even better, Second Life is free, and offers you an extremely customizable avatar. See my profile pic? That's a tribute avatar I compiled and customized in Second Life. So you can look pretty (or pretty good) while being bored to tears there, too, if that's really your thing.

If you want the experience offered here, just go visit Second Life, find a few artsy parks, and wander around. Or just wander around in general. There's more to explore, the colors don't give you a headache, you get to see at least as much weird stuff as you do in this game, you have a highly customizable avatar, and Second Life is free to visit.

It's not really a game, but non-interactive art. 9 worlds, 9 tracks of music and 9 plains to explore filled with lots of interesting artifacts and creatures. Itmay seem aesthetically pleasing, but that's what reeled me in. It's not really worth it if you ask me. The other worlds are very uninteresting, and the first world has such limited content. There is very little way to interact with the environment. Once you've seen somone else play it, you've pretty much seen the whole game. 66/100

Early Access Review
Posted: January 7, 2015
I love psychedelia, either in music, art or playing psychedelic looking games, unfortunately I was quite disappointed in TRIP: Steam Edition after experiencing it for nearly 10 hours in bite-sized chunks over the last 24 hours since I purchased it; that is, at least in its present state. As it is early access I may change my opinion as time progresses, but that will depnd on what the developer does for the game. It says the artware is an open world environment; for me that conjures up the thought that you are able to explore every part of the world you find yourself in. Sadly I found there were many places I wasn't able to explore, for example trying to get from many places via hills, you aren't able to climb anything steeper than about 45 degrees, this basically locks off loads of area of the world so far created. I tried for hours to find ways to access certain area's, but was always held back by the inability to climb anything too steep.

The actual artware/game (I include game because Steam imply that its also a game when it asks the question, 'Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?') is basically an exploration game, nothing else, just wandering around looking at the weird shapes and colors. For several minutes I found this quite exciting and stimulating, but eventually found it a little bit too much after an hour of wandering around. I was determined to contine, but had to break the experience up into chunks.

I know the developer has said they intend expanding the game and adding different worlds. I'm sure those additions will add a little more interest. also they said that the game was a visually tantalizing open world artware that culminates the player to relax and enjoy a safe enviroment for them to explore at their own pace and that there are no objectives, no rules, just beauty and art. Yes, I can agree with that, it does definitely help you to relax, but why are we calling it a game , or more truthfully selling it as a game. As a piece of experimental artware, I'd be happy, but I wanted a game.. Okay, I read the description and still purchased the 'artware'. Still I wasn't expecting it to be so tedious. Lets hope the additional content the developer has promised will materialize and expand on what's already here and in fact evolve it into more than just artware; lets see an artware based game with some substance to it.

for example:

I really think think the game/artware needs a little more than just more places to explore. We need some incentives to carry on exploring the world; maybe some puzzles to unlock hidden area's, mini games, or even a mode that allows some sort of co-operative play or PvP. These would certainly add interest and IMO would increase the numbers buying this game three fold or more.

Thankfully the price of the game even without the initial release discount is quite cheap at £4.49 (probably even cheaper in the US), but, unless you really like games with little content apart from weird, colorful and pretty visuals, I'd steer clear unless it goes on sale or the developer adds some thing more to do apart from wandering around. To be honest, I can't believe I've spent 10 hours on this game. (Maybe I was enjoying myself so much i didn't realize the time, though it's more likley I fell asleep at times at the keyboard. :)

To the developer. If you do read this, I'd like to say, I really want to like this game, the color palette you've used is excellent, the visuals are pretty awesome and the game has loads of potential, but please please please add some content (some examples quoted above) that gives the player an incentive to carry on playing, or at least add the ability to interact with other players or NPC's, maybe make the odd characters and animals (eg the camel) that I found in game actually animated rather than just statuesque. I really did loved the visuals and look forwards to seeing more, but I can't recommend this to my friends as it stands.

As the title and screenshots already suggest TRIP is pretty weird.

The only thing you can do in this 'game' is walk around on a map and checkout all the colourful surroundings and objects. Some objects move up and down but other then that there are no real physics of any kind.

Because apparently one of two developers quit working on the game so all his concent has been taken of the game, although it could be just a lame excuse to say the game is not finished AT ALL. For instance there's hardly any sound in the game, the only sound I found was right at the beginning.

There are items you can pick up but don't let that fool you. The items don't do anything and they probably never will.
The game looks like (and probably is) it has been made in a few days, the developers just created all the random stuff they could come up with and put them somewhere in the game without any real idea behind it.

According to the developer the game has been in development for at least 2 years which, in my opinion, is a long time to come up with something like this. So... Yes the game is still in Early Access but... do you really believe the developer actually comes up with NPC's and quests ? If so, I would happily change this review but for now I would stay away from this one.

Basically the game has enough to gawk at if you like this kind of trippy, pseudo-artsy stuff but without a proper soundtrack for the full effect the dev is trying to convey... it's not worth experiencing.

Doesn't meet my expectations; art or gameplay-wise. I appreciate the effort, yet there's nothing for me to recommend.

Don't call it a "game".
You just "explore" ugly map.
It's so "artistic" that it will couse pain in your eyes.
Everything looks unfinished.

Now it has background music unfortunatelly.

Paid 60p for this game, 60p I will never get back, 60p I could have used to buy a tin of beans and forcefully insert it into my rect-um; providing me with more entertainment than this game could ever give!

AVOID!

Yep, that surely is a trip. But what's the destination of it? Looking forward for updates, as a part of a bundle, it's worth playing. More like an art, not game though.

If you weren't a fan of proteus, you won't be a fan of this. This is random vertex vomit, coloured up and labelled as "art" and is as pretentious as possible. I got this as part of a humble bundle like Proteus.

There's barely any sound, no music and the only interactivity is picking up random "symbols" scattered around the place. I couldn't in good concsience let people pay money for this

I walked around getting a headache from the colourful graphics. There is no sound, except for a synth wash every so often. Hopefully the update will fix things like Inventory, etc. I found floaty things that I think I picked up but as the game has no set objectives it became a bit marmite after a while. You'll either like or hate it...
