I don't know why, but for some reason I was expecting Brad to do this Quick Look. I think he's usually the one who does QLs for "portal-likes".

I believe the word you were looking for is "perspective." However, that is just my perception.

Can you not lead new players through this? Things get bigger, get smaller, perspective! It's kinda lame! What a shitty view of this game. I got 5 minutes into a 10 minute video and got fed up. Thanks guys.

When you can only get ten minutes out of a game and you have no interest in presenting the game in anything but a negative light, maybe don't do the video.

It's interesting that Abby talks about a comparison to a better game, in her opinion, as a disservice. I guess because you might be thinking about a better game while playing this. I can only consider "It's like The Stanley Parable" to be a good thing. Just from the main menu, I thought "Is this a new game from the Stanley Parable guys? I might have to play this."

This game seems really cool from what they showed. Would love a short puzzle experience like those others mentioned. I don't understand why they were so negative about it though? Just from some later stuff they didn't show that they didn't like for... some reason? Think I'll totally play this anyway.

@sgtsphynx: Brad played a brief demo of this a few months ago on a UPF, I think.

Was this announced or in early access like 5-7 years ago? I've definitely seen something with almost the exact same art style and perspective/scale based puzzles several years ago, seems like it was around the same time as Q.U.B.E. and many of those other portal likes around 2012-14. I specifically remember the chess piece puzzles.
