    I love when dev's are creative like this, but I have feeling what was shown in the video is all there is to see.

    Interesting concept, if nothing else, at least the developer is thinking outside the box.

    and outside people's wallet cause from the concept this "game" doesn't seem worth 2.99$

    That will of course vary from person to person. Some people throw away hundreds of thousands of dollars on absolutely nothing. For a unique experience that isn't seen elsewhere, I can see this game being purchased by some. It won't make any top list or have jaw-dropping sales, but it certainly won't go unsold.

    I was interested in this title when someone linked to Opertoon's website a couple of weeks ago. I'm loving the concept, but I'm not sure about depth of this game or rather an experience. It seems it just flips between the two character's faces and that's about it. If the interaction ends there and there aren't any other ways that will tell us more about the characters or let our choices influence the outcome in a greater way - I have to say I'll be pretty disappointed as this is a great concept.

    I saw this got a nomination at IGF. Does anyone have it? Give a quick review of the games depth, length, replayability. Do you learn it's tricks by using it once?

    maybe if the dev added multiple characters, and created soap opera momemnts...and hundreds of outputs/ending then just 4

    he is mad, she is mad
    he is mad, she is sad
    he is sad, she is mad
    he is sad, she is sad

    Replayability...

    The app store mentions the "replayability" factor & multiple outcomes, but seriously.

    You make them break up, you keep them together.

    Am i missing something?:confused:

    Good on the dev for "trying" to make something original. I just don't see any point to it what-so-ever.

    It seems more of an "experience and reflect" type of game, similar to Passage.

    Those looking for depth, action and game play best look elsewhere.

    Those who can see this game as a similar experience to viewing art or reflecting upon the experience may deem it worthwhile.
