I'm not entirely sure what to even call Today I Die Again [Free]. I suppose technically it's a puzzle game, maybe, because you need to figure out what you need to do in order to "complete" it. Really though, it just seems like a really well done interactive poem. It won't take you much more than ten minutes to get all the way through it, and I'm really reluctant to even explain how it "plays" because discovering each component is all part of the experience.

If this trailer piques your interest, stop what you're doing right now and download the game:

Today I Die Again is a beautifully succinct journey that I won't soon forget. Unfortunately, because it's free, all kinds of people are downloading the game who both don't get it and don't appreciate it... So if you value your sanity, don't check the iTunes reviews. Also be sure not to read any more about the game than this article before you play through it, as I really think this is one of those things that's so much better to go in to not even knowing what to expect.

    Well, I figured out what the icon is, and I got past the title screen... I’m on a roll!

    (There’s a clue in my first sentence... and in this one.)

    Only took a couple of minutes to complete, but absolutely lovely little app. Great concept, graphics, and left me with a nice warm feeling.

    How the heck do I get past "Free world full of shadow today I..." and I have FIGHT or SWIM, neither of which do anything! Just a load of blobs that I can't tap fast enough to make disappear!

    Help!

    Oh man thanks for this post, i really really really enjoyed this game, it was beautifully done. Maybe if they could make a mainstream game that was like this progressing through poetry, it would be amazing.

    Simple yet very heart-warming. :3
    Glad they ported it to the iOS!

    I wish games with deep concept like "Everyday the Same Dream" and the like gets ported too!

    This game is magical! Got it a while ago, loved every second. Better than every soulless new title from Gameloft.

    This is/was definitely one of the best experiences I had on my iPod yet.

  • skamando

    No wonder this is so fantastic. Check the credits. Terry Cavanagh had his beautiful mitts on this game. Wonderful stuff. Great work to everyone involved.

    Oh, I remember playing the flash game. It was definitely a beautiful experience!

    A unique piece of art in video games. However the original PC version was better.

  • trystero

    amazing game... way too short an experience :(

  • Whoaminow

    Er.. what?
    Call me shallow, but I'm calling this pretentious.

  • Handyman

    Man, that Whoaminow fellow certainly is shallow.
