Reviews

“The Beginner's Guide is one of the most daring and creative commercial games to come out in a good long while...a masterclass in character-driven storytelling.”
Eurogamer

“Few game developers have ever ventured such an open-hearted project about human frailty – and knocked it out of orbit.”
The Washington Post

“I've been thinking about this game a lot for the past 36 hours. It demanded I think about it, at first only superficially, but later more substantively. I mulled over a lot of questions when I should have been sleeping. I continued thinking right when I woke up. I think I dreamed about it in between.”
