    DL'd it, played it, got off the boat, hit a wall, couldn't (after ten minutes of trying) get past this 2nd screen, uninstalled it.

    It was the 2nd screen of a computer game!

    Do you really think I am going to sit there for more than ten minutes hitting every button with no recourse? No. Not me, someone else, but not me.

    Damn, I remember playing this game way back in about 2012, it felt like a real adventure this game, and it felt like there was some atmosphere and meaning to it beyond the simple game, but I don't know/remember what it was! (I did get to the end & completed it). Definitely worth playing & finishing (without internet googling help for tips).

    EDIT: just googled the game to refresh my memory of it....yep, absolutely, do not google this game at any point when you play it, just play it fresh & knowing nothing!

    Limbo and Inside the best indie games that I've played. I never give up when I hit the wall in games and always try to find the solution on my own.

    Asks me for a verification code when I log in, says it's sent to my email but not arriving, the last time I tried it never arrived either. And no it's not in my spam box. I guess I'll just never log into my Epic Games account. I suppose their decrepit hamster powering their server can't handle more than a few people at a time.

    Hit every button? There's only 3 controls: left joystick (move/climb), A (grab/trigger), and B (jump). You pretty much learned all of the game controls by the time you got off the boat. The basic controls and being 2D + grayscale leaves you very limited in what you're capable of doing. The game didn't win so many awards because it was easy to walk to the right the whole time.

    I know. That is the point. I hit every button in every direction and said 'screw it' because if a game freezes me on the 2nd screen, I dread to think how many other screens they created to artificially make the game longer than it needs to be.

    Now, I can tell you almost to the micro-second how to play 'another world' from beginning to end, and to a much lesser degree 'flashback', but not this, no thanks.

    You can beat the whole game in about 3 hours. Only the first like... 3 minutes of the game is just mindless walking and waiting. So no, there's nothing artificially lengthened other than the intro. It's somewhat of a puzzle game, so, however long it takes is up to you.
