No I won??? Won what about what, or within what kind of a story? Seems more a psycho-test gone awry than a FF!

I remember it being a fascinating mix of gameplay and exploring one's psyche when I played it a few years ago. I don't know if I tipped my hat to the author then for writing it.. but I'm doing so now.

But I really really struggle to understand the point of the story. I can get that it is some sort of metaphor. But the man and you know all those stuff.... it is meant to be the freedom of your mind or something?

Babap.. I think what made this story a winner was the fact that it was a kind of departure from the kind of prose most of us are used to. Now, that's not to say we'd want that in every story we set out to solve.. lol... no. But it was refreshing nonetheless, and added a little twist to the overall genre. Never a bad thing, in my estimation.

Great! Thu Dec 18 22:54:55 2014
I played it, and thought it was amazing and very thoughtful. The only problem was that I couldn't work out how to finish it.

michael Wed Dec 23 12:22:50 2015

So I just completed it, multiple times actually, and found it very original and intriguing. However, there is one thing I disliked about the "true" ending:
Why do you have to kill the "beast"? It seemed to me like it was, at best, a sick animal fleeing from a bloodthirsty hunter. There are certain values and actions that the book seems to affirm, but this part seems to go against all that, and seems like much worse of a choice than killing the metal-armed soldier in the red passage. I understand that it might represent past regrets and such, which you have to leave behind, but even then, finishing what the highly unsympathetic Richard has started by shooting the beast in the head and gloating at its death with disgust seems much more like repressing it, whereas looking it in the eyes and befriending it seems more like accepting your past, which is closer to the "positive thinking" the ending mentions.
I might be looking at it the wrong way, but with a book themed around psychology I can't help nitpicking over its symbolism.
Other than that I really enjoyed this book, and will definitely recommend it to others as well.

If anyone can provide me with any tips that would be good! Here is what I did.
In the red light, I saw the thing in armor but did not pick up the gun. I ran back to the red light. in the green light, I killed the beat after it ripped off the guys arm, in the pink light, I said that having childeren is the answer, in the yellow, after winning, I took the mystery prize.

This book is weird. Having played several times and not found the "winning" ending, I'm moving on to other games. I'll return later to try again. All-decision games are usually OK, but with little plot and clarity on what is correct, it becomes annoying. The writing is good, with clever mini-stories. But this is too tough. More plot or clues towards the correct solution would help. Grade: 90

Hmm. An interesting experience. Kinda cool with the different lights as different trials, or at least I assume that is how they work. Not sure if I got to the best ending or not, seemed to a good ending, just not sure if it is the best. Will be interesting to see the other comments.
