Cos'è BRAINPIPE?

Non sarà, forse, un marchingegno extraterrestre usato per controllare le menti, ma presentato, astutamente, solo come un bizzarro e innocuo gioco per computer?

O forse si tratta di una porta di accesso a mondi altri, creata per mezzo di arti magiche e invocata da strane creature nascoste in isole sperdute nel sud del Pacifico?

Forse è un messaggio proveniente dal futuro, una sorta di guida destinata al genere umano finalizzata all'ascensione dell'umanità a uno stato d'essere superiore .

O, forse, si tratta solo di un gioco della Digital Eel che crea dipendenza.

BRAINPIPE costituisce un'esperienza ludica più unica che rara. L'obiettivo finale è quello di trascendere l'umanità. Lo farai serpeggiando tra i meandri più reconditi della tua mente, esercitando la coordinazione mano-vista e, nel frattempo, potrai apprezzare le visioni e i suoni provenienti dalla tua psiche. Colleziona i glifi illuminati ed evita gli ostacoli negativi. Possono apparire positivi e luminosi, perfino caldi e invitanti, il solo atto di sfiorarli ti porterà sempre più vicino alle tenebre eterne!

BRAINPIPE si contraddistingue anche per la facile giocabilità, e, per le sue caratteristiche, ci rimanda ai giochi classici arcade del passato. Un'interfaccia semplice, con un solo click che ti permette di concentrarti sull'azione, invece di distogliere la tua attenzione obbligandoti a cercare il tasto giusto da premere. Ed è un complemento perfetto sia dal punto di vista audio che da quello visuale.

Sei pronto a intraprendere un viaggio oltre lo spazio?

Oltre il tempo?

Oltre la MENTE?

Prova BRAINPIPE adesso!

There isn't really a lot to Brainpipe but that's OK. It's a game where you zoom through a tunnel at speed, grab glyphs and avoid anything that's likely to kill you (that's pretty much everything that isn't a glyph, really).

And doesn't it sound so terminally dull when you put it like that? (YES, IT DOES)

Is it terminally dull? Nope. it is so very far from terminally dull! Rejoice.

There's a couple of things that really make Brainpipe special. One is the graphics which, y'know, aren't quite up to the full Minter they're certainly not far off. It's like flying through someone's fevered attempt at a 70's Doctor Who title sequence or what might happen if someone sat down and said "Mr Trumbull, could you make us a videogame please" or something.

The other is the sound. Oh man, the sound. This is the stuff of headphones on, turn it up, sit back and enjoy. Or just turn it up really loud if you can't manage that. Parts of the soundtrack wibble in and out of focus, sounds zip around you ear to ear, it's one long Any Colour You Like ride but a little bit more strange.

It's essentially the full audio/visual woooah there. Which is just fine. I love it to bits. I love it for its simplicity, I love it for its graphics and I love it for its sound but I love it most of all because it's so very pure and unfiltered. It's slightly weirdy, slightly askew and all the woah there. I couldn't ask for much more.

Great sound, good visuals, and fun words. Got in on sale for $0.99 and I think it was worth it, just for the enjoyable experience. Also fits really well with certain music, like Pete Namlook & Bill Laswell's "From the Earth to the Ceiling", Biosphere's "Baby Interphase", or Boards of Canada's "An Eagle in Your Mind" (try some!). It's a fun, trippy experience into the mind... the most dangerous place we'll ever know!

This is the weirdest game I've ever loved.
It's not particularly deep, but it's a true experience, and I'm gonna reccomend this to literally everyone who's interested in something different, given it'll cost you less than a coffee at Starbuck's and probably last you a good while longer.

As an individual who has felt out of place on this gay Earth ever since his conception, I can only recommend BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity to others who share this feeling that they are out of place.

Now for those unfamiliar with me, my ASL and other sensitive info is not really confidential info but it's not really relevant for this review either. What IS important is that "reality" or as I like to call it the "disgusting 3DPD realm" is not a hospitable environment for those of 2-D descent, such as myself and many others. However as cruel fate would have it, we ended up becoming the enigma that is cute, 2-D girls stuck in the bodies of vile three dimensional animals known as MAN.

I must commend the developer, Digital Eel, not only for having a fantastic name as I am a fan of eel, but for providing the end-all SOLUTION to our dilemma, which many so-called big name developers and their "AAA games" have failed to do. As I speak and continue to explore the outer depths of my mind even further, my soul is on its way to free itself from this dreadful anchor that I was forced to call my body. Soon I will be able to return to the world of cute girls doing cute things without any plot or advancement of time. Soon I will live in a world without strife, and only girl's underwear featuring cute, yet intricate designs.

Thank you Digital Eel, for giving me liberation at the generous (discounted) price of $0.99 during the Steam Summer Sale. You are an inspiration and a prime example of what budding developers should aim to be.

Quick review:

Short Verdict: A psychedelic first-person runner, with maybe a neuro-something theme if you look hard enough. A bland game experience, and it doesn't add much to the genre. If you really want a runner and don't wanna spend more than US$2 on it, then maybe, just maybe, you could get this. (I wouldn't, since I only had fun for the first 5 minutes of the 15 I managed to play.) Otherwise, stay away.

Pros:
  • Weird graphics in a nice way
  • Could be fun as a casual game for the right player
  • You may start a new game from any stage you want
  • If you like the game, it has replay value, since levels are randomly generated

Cons:
  • Controls are not very smooth and don't add much to gameplay
  • Weird background... music? No, definitely not music, more like organized noises
  • When it gets too fast, it's almost certain that when you hit an object you'll hit a lot more and die
  • Health system is kind of weird--when you take a hit, everything shakes and red flashes everywhere, but you can't really know exactly how's your health

Bought on / for: I actually only played BRAINPIPE because I got it as a giveaway. Even for free, I wouldn't get it if I'd known. By the way, it's currently being sold on Steam Store for R$ 4,29 (US$ 1.88).

It's just a first person runner with psychedelic graphics. Gameplay wise it isn't anything special and I don't recommend unless you are looking to add a runner to your Steam library.

Wow, what can I say about BRAINPLOP: A Prune to Unhumidity. Probably a lot so much about the game. But who could ever top the game that won all the awards? Nobody, that's who AND BY NOBODY I mean BRAINPLOP the PS3games. Its a gem and a half. Pick it up, if youre stong enough.

This game is bullcrap. Everytime I open it it flashes white and red then crashes. It is a total waste of money and I would like to request my money back. I sat there for five minutes trying to open this so that I could right a review. I am extrememly ♥♥♥♥ed off and would like my money back. I do not care if you take it from my inventory but I would like my money back.

I found this to be one of the strangest games I have encountered. It is basically a reflex and control game that offer no instructions. There is discovery, which is most of the game experience. Even with that, I still couldn't find myself liking the game.

Perhaps the experience that this game offers is not for me. Maybe I'll try it again someday but not anytime soon.

I give this game a "Not my cup of coffee OUT OF 5".

Okay, this game is ♥♥♥♥ing awesome.

It's the kind of game you play once every few weeks, but for the rest of your life. Great if you randomly feel like immersing yourself in a richly aurally-textured half-axon half-multiverse tunnel with a pace ranging from narcoleptic to highly spasmodic.

The actual goal is collecting glyphes embodying tiered concepts, with a final one marking a progression we'll get back to; all while avoiding obstacles as your speed slowly increases with each level.
For instance, level 1 is the nasal ganglia, with concepts such as "peculiar insight" or "nervous laugh" and the final glyph being Awareness.
The gameplay also involves the ability to, holy ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥, SLOW DOWN TIME. The game really has a particular relation to time in general, as you slow down the sound environment as well and pausing temporally stucks you in one audio piece. Said pieces otherwise naturally flow with the game.

While all golden glyphes make you "progress", and the general goal is to collect everything, the game has one and only one condition for winning : collecting the very final glyph, Unhumanity. Completing a playthrough rewards you with the ability to choose an in-game avatar from a variety of monsters. As for what happens when you miss the glyph... I'll let you see for yourself.

So in short, exceedingly fun, love the overall feel of the game, EXTREMELY underrated on steam. It's one of those little games that have a special place in my heart. Maybe literally given the environment.

It's an interesting game, but there isn't a lot of things to say about it, you have to avoid obstacles at fast speed and catch some letters on every level, the difficult is good at later levels, appart from that there isn't a lot to say about it, I can't recommend this one for it's full price, it's just an arcade game, only 10 levels and almost no replay value other than getting higher scores, it's a good choice if you want something quick to play on a boring day or if you're looking for something different to play in steam.

Classic reflex and control game. No instructions, but immersion = discovery.
It's weird, trippy, and a bit disjointed, but definitely charming.
You play as the mind's eye in a randomly generated stream of consciousness.
Collect the glyphs for bonus points and strive for that ulitmate goal: Unhumanity.
No unlocks, no BS. Simple, yet replayable.
Worth $2? Yup. You'll get your playtime out of it.

A wondrous little Indie title that will test your strabismic acuity. Brainpipe is a traversal of a coaster like psychedelic pipe complete with immersive award winning audio and great visuals. -w 1920 -h 1080 -fullscreen

This game consists entirely of dodging obstacles while flying through the opening to Doctor Who. Along the way you'll pick up various hydrocarbon chains, most of which are butane, but 1,1-dimethylcyclopropane does make an appearance (for all you 1,1-dimethylcyclopropane fans out there or "1,1-dimethylcyclopropane-iacs").

The options menu allows adjustment of music and sound effects and nothing else. So if you l find the controls too sensitive, as I did, then too bad.

So far I've only gotten to level nine. Doing so took 20 minutes. I'd be surprised if this game is longer than an hour. Without any evidence to the contrary, I'm forced to assume that the game's brevity is to make sure it doesn't get repetitive.

If flying through an abstract something-or-another while dodging stuff sounds fun, then buy "1... 2... 3... Kick It!"
If you feel that you must buy this game, then wait for it to go on sale first, it isn't long enough for $10. Also, consider checking into rehab, hippie.
