This game is insane.

I mean you have to be fucking insane to want to solve these puzzles. COOL COOL it's like code yah yah, I get it, but it's also written in cursive and flipped upside just cause. Cause fuck you that's why. Also this other part of the code is on a wall you can't see on the other side of the map, but they have to be put together to work. Also here's some numbers. Sometimes this one means 3, but not all the time. Sometimes this other symbol is 3. Right now I'm sitting here waiting for a clock to reach 12. Why...................

Don't play this game unless you're insane.

Don't be silly, that's onesane.

Clearly it's the game that breeds insanity, to correct our colleague; Don't play this game if you are prone to mental illnesses and psychological breakdowns.

Don't know about my sanity, but I won't play Fez either way. My life is already a cute indie puzzle platformer, don't need more of that.

We could transform this into a discussion of "What moments in games have made you realize that this game is insane?" Just a thought.

The part in Saints Row: The Third where the Boss and Pierce sing the entirety of What I Got by Sublime.

The ending of Portal 2.

Of course, I won't spoil it, but anyone that finished the game know what I am talking about...

Thats how I felt about some of the puzzles in Killer 7. I didn't bother w/them, and I probably should have. Just looked up the answers to see the horses race....

Don't worry about it no one will ever get to play it.

I will. I'm a Guillermo del Toro fanboy!

I wouldn't call it insane. it's really really smart. I solved quite a few puzzles and said to myself "damn, this puzzle was so smart!" and then I came to a point where I realised the game wasn't just smart, it's also smarter than me. after I beat fez and started a new game +, the game beat me.

#19 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

The game isn't smarter than you. It's almost like a fucking job. It's just needlessly cryptic. Example: here's a puzzle that's impossible for you to solve atm, but I'm going to shove it in your face every step of the way. I've crashed the game attempting to solve an impossible puzzle more times than thinking "hey that was pretty clever".

This insane game asks you to be SANE by piecing everything together.

I'm honestly totally fine with the puzzles being incredibly cryptic - I love the sensation that there is a ton of crazy weird stuff lurking under the surface of the game. It's like the videogame equivalent of Boards of Canada.

Buh-dum-tish!

Is it possibly insane in the membrane?

@Green_Incarnate: It most likely isn't impossible. What would be the point in that? Difficult != impossible.

Everything doesn't have to be easy. The challenge makes it fun and intriguing. I'm happy to see a game come out with a cryptic challenge like this and shove it in your face, making no effort whatsoever to hold your hand through a solution. You aren't entitled to that. If you find it too tough of a challenge, give up and maybe join the folks brute-forcing through it instead of putting in the intellectual legwork.

Frankly, that's missing the fucking point isn't it? If someone hands you a maze, you don't just draw a goddamned straight line from the start to the finish.
