And yet it move and first blog in ages!

So yeah just finished AYIM(and yet it moves) and i thought it to be a good game to get back to blogging.  
What a strange game. 
The gameplay is awesome, the puzzles are well designed and everything is very well put together. however there's one thing that i found a little... weird. The mood. This game could have very well been a typical, happy go lucky, child friendly puzzle platformer and that would have been totally fine! However, the mood is very different.  
It starts with the music and sound design. Although good, it's very creepy (for lack of a better word) and very ominous. For those who have played it, you know what i mean, for those who haven't, watch the quick look. 
Another factor was the things that go on. in the game. Although the story is basically not there or to use a term overused in the art world (sigh) "open to interpretation". itt seems to have a narrative... but not. it's hard to describe. 
Anyway that's all for now but i ddo plan on making a big blog post on Enslaved... I have so much to say beyond "is it good or bad?" 
here's the quick look for those who haven't played it.  

  
ALSO! for those who played it, did this sense of confusion also hit you with and yet it moves? what's your opinion?

I just finished the game, and yeah, it is very weird. Aesthetically, I can't really think of anything quite like it. It was a neat touch to have you play through the credits as the last level.

I liked it quite a lot, but found the Wii version to be superior to the PC version. One of the few games where Wii controls work perfectly

@kalmis: yeah the wii version seems quite awesome. regardless both versions are really good in a weird way!
