Congratulations!

The game looks kind of mindblowing, yet easy to understand the idea in terms of gameplay. The only game I could think it was similar to was Alan Wake with the light, but with a fog-of-war effect.

It was humbling to hear that it started on Newgrounds as a 2-month prototype, the developers (Eyebrow Interactive) didn't think it was a good game so they spent 3 years on it.

Anyone know when it comes out? It's coming on PSN, according to their website.

Just tried the demo, very unique and hurt my head in a good way!

This is the next Limbo/Braid.

I'm real unsure about this game. Felt underwhelmed by Limbo (I really didn't click with the setting), but if there's a little more story telling I'll pick it up.

I remember playing Closure when it came out. It's so weird seeing Flash games turned into proper products.

I think it's only weird when they still animate like Flash games. Alien Hominid is a good example of a game that looks like a proper game, though it came from humble origins on Newgrounds.
