Perspective. Played through to the credits?

After Jeff and Patrick's recent Quick look I found myself far more interested in this little student experiment than I had otherwise been from the buzz and nominations that were floating around. So a quick download and play-through later, I can't recommend this enough. If you enjoy these sort of lateral thinking puzzles than you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to give it a try.

It has much better pacing than I was expecting, little changes at just the right moment should hold your interest the whole way through. It will likely take you less than an hour, probably less than thirty minutes if you are a decent puzzle solver.

And just my favourite credits roll in a long time. between this and Kentucky Route Zero that's two really elegant (in totally different ways) to finish a play-through.

Couldn't agree more. Perspective is so short it makes the first Portal game feel like a Bioware epic, but it is full of nicely put together spins on a neat core idea. And yes, play to the very end. The final beat makes it well worth it. :)

I planned to play it while watching the QL.

Just finished it. It's pretty fun and longer than I was expecting. The credits sequence though... took me a few minutes to figure out what to do.

After the credits I thought it would be something cool. Turns out it was just a room to jump around in. So then I quit the game...ending sequence of the year!*

I'm stoked it's getting the same response from you guys. I'm really looking forward to whatever the devs work on next.

The ending was absolutely worth it on top of really liking what I was playing.

The way the game takes a screen shot of your desktop and transplants that into a level scared the shit out of me at first. Then I realized I was still playing the game and I was blown away.
