ilomilo is a game that celebrates the power of friendship. It's about how two people working together can maintain a strong relationship no matter how complicated and convoluted life becomes. Perhaps Kotaku is reading too much into it, but the fact that a puzzle game has left them in this thoughtful of a mood is something in itself. To others it might simply be an enjoyable marriage of challenging puzzles, gorgeous graphics, quirky character design, and whimsical music. It's all that to them, and something deeper as well.
