Fifteen Minutes Of Something Else Entirely

Fifteen minutes is not a particularly long time, especially in gaming. In many modern games, fifteen minutes of play won’t get you past the opening titles and tutorials. However, fifteen minutes is also the entire duration of Blendo Games’ Thirty Flights of Loving, a 2012 independent release about a heist that packs a dense, emotional, character-driven narrative into just a few short sequences. By subverting many of gaming’s narrative conventions, Thirty Flights of Loving constructs a world and a storyline that far exceed the constraints of its short length.

This is not, strictly speaking, a traditional video-game experience. (PC, Thirty Flights Of Loving)
