Just downloading it! I'm really looking forward to trying this out. I've recently found some of the smaller games to be a welcome change to the AAA titles. I don't 'prefer' them, I just like the pick up and play nature of them

edit! OH MY GOD *sorry about that* This game is incredible. If you want to test the question 'are games art?' here is the best place to start ... Now excuse me while I slide back into the world of Thomas.

I'm not insulting this game specifically, I haven't played it yet and for all I know the writing and gameplay could make it great as many people are saying, but I have started to wonder recently, at what point does this trend of 'minimalist presentation stop being an artistic decision and just start being laziness?

Well it is an Indie game, nonetheless the art style is absolutely perfect for what the developer has tried to achieve.
You'll probably agree with me once have a go at the game.

I just played a little and I do like it so far thanks to the writing. Perhaps the most hipstery thing I've ever played and I hate to dismiss something as 'hipster' but I could practically feel the ginger beard and thick rimmed glasses growing on me as I played. Still though, quite enjoyable so far.

I thought I'd quite like this game but I still kinda hope this trend towards more and more minimalist art styles at least pulls itself back to the retro 16bit style. I think controlling a square block in a world made of square blocks is as far as I'm willing to go with this 'less is more' thing.

Was playing it earlier, good writing and very addictive. I probably would never have played it if it wasn't for PS+.
