This is actual hell in game form. No wonder only there is only one video proof of the 4 stages existing. Everybody is happy that they have finished this game, but little do they know that it's only 25% of the full game. Apparently the full game is the same map chopped, destroyed, demented, and hidden away from public view for 4 stages. At the end you are left with absolute darkness, no naration, no music, the game's world is dead, emptiness of once enjoyed and interesting designs is gone. The only surviving elements are hope, player's will, the ball and frustration. But we can still make out the map and make out the familiar, we repeated the same cycle but 4 times, and worse every time. To cause absolute pain and suffering unlike just completing the 1st stage. Remember that you chose to come and visit real hell of a videogame world, if the player wants to, they can just be done with stage 1. There is nothing but limbo left, oddly it's not alien at all, it's still familiar and you remember where to go. At the very end all that is left after stage 4, is DNA. You are reduced to DNA, the ball falls down, and all of this for nothing. You are finally reborn and in stage 1 yet again, this time with no purpose being here, getting out from the game for good. This is Everywhere At The End of Time of videogames except the 5 ladder stages are hidden.
I feel like I've seen this on a DanTDM video along time ago...
Hola, tras ver varios gameplays de youtubers jugándolo, se me antojó jugarlo yo mismo, pero cuesta dinero, esto no es problema pero me encantaría que el juego tuviese una demo en la que solo pudieras llegar hasta la primera isla flotante por ejemplo, solo para probar los controles, la jugabilidad y cuando esté seguro, comprarlo. ;)
eschewing all previous cynic paradigms, we are presented with an alternative to diogenes' trip up the mountain, wherein instead we are reduced to the simplest form in all of history, the ball, foregoing even the need for the second most important item in the game of golf: the golf club, showing us that although diogenes is not with us anymore his spirit and teachings still hold true, the same way he cast away his last drinking cup we cast away the golf club and the ball simply moves by virtue of our will, the only thing that is left after the luxury of having the shape of the golf club appear and hit this ball was deemed too much for our cynical developer friend, who in true cynical spirit decided that original ideas too were too big a burden and completely unnecessary to the human existence. thusly we are presented with a masterpiece, replacing foddy's slight australian accent with a thick spanish accent we are indebted to ourselves to pay the modicum price of 4.99 usd (3.99 if you buy it on sale you opportunistic neoliberal) for this original retooling and, albeit more pragmatic and cynical, barebones version of a 7.99 usd game, truly the watershed moment in all of recent independent video gaming milestones
