What is BRAINPIPE?

Is it an otherworldly mind control device, masquerading as a seemingly quaint computer game?

Is it a gateway to worlds beyond our own, created by eldritch wizardry and invoked by strange creatures hidden away on uncharted islands in the South Pacific?

Perhaps it's a message from the future, an instruction to mankind to uplift humanity to a higher state of being.

Or maybe it's just an addictive endurance run game from Digital Eel.

BRAINPIPE is a unique gaming experience. The ultimate objective is to transcend humanity. You do this by navigating the tunnels of your mind, exercising your hand-eye coordination while relishing in the funkadelic sights and sounds of your inner self. Collect the illuminated glyphs while avoiding the nasty obstacles. They may look all nice and shiny, even warm and inviting, but each brush with them brings you one step closer to eternal darkness!

BRAINPIPE is also an easy game to play, hearkening back to the classic arcade games of yesteryear. A one click interface keeps you focused on the action, instead of searching for the right key to press, and is a perfect complement to the soothing audio and visuals.

Are you ready for a trip beyond space?

Beyond time?

Beyond MIND?

Ah, the smell of highly experimental concepts.

I find this game to be very meditative, at least on the highest levels.
Great sounds, interesting concept, simple gameplay, challenging.
Nice little game.

You´re constantly moving forward in a tube (your aim consists of a circle with perpendicular lines moving towards you) , have to avoid obstacles and collect "glyphic" items. Pretty relaxing and also good to reduce your brain lag. Improved my reaction time in Counter Strike. I like the esoteric art style and the minimalistic soundtrack. It´s very easy to learn - but as you go along it will be hard to master.

Do not purchase this game until they fix the crashes. Before OS X El Capitan, this game functioned fine. It no longer loads. It is a mesmerizing game to play, with stunning visuals. I sent numerous requests this year without any response from the designers. If you can't fix it, have the Chinese or Japanese fix it. They show more allegiance to their customers and honor their companies.

Meh,kinda neat but I've played versions of the same game I liked more . I didn't give it as fair a chance as I should have because I've many games to try, maybe I'll try later.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
