Wow, that was quite the adventure! Figuring it out and seeing for yourself in an hour, in one sitting, is the best way. All you should know is there is an ending and you'll figure out how to progress forward with no need for a tutorial. I didn't expect an ending. But what an exquisite and jaw-dropping one it was.
It was kind of cool how you didn't have to follow the main path through the vortex cycles. Just chilling, looking at the shooting stars, taking loads of screenshots. Kind of non-linear unlike Journey which clearly wanted you to move on.
You can press Q for auto-walk, truly an evolution from Dear Esther :P
It's a great season simulator, the audio design is fantastic. Hearing the windy breeze on top of a snowed mountain, creatures chirping tunes, and then it giving out in serene moments.
Can't wait to sit down my friends and family to play this by themselves.
Did anyone encounter this tree hanging creature? Don't think it's a squirrel.
