Saw the trailer and I left feeling even more clueless as to what exactly this game is about.

I played the mod. You are on an island and walk and at some points your hear a person talking about stuff.

It's not really a game.

Reviews seem to say its not a game but more like an audio book that you slowwwly walk through. That could be great if they didnt also say the story was a bit of a miss.

It's something unique and for that price, I can't see why someone would hesitate in getting it

Ah, I'll probably buy this "game".

It looks pretty enough.

Edit: Nothing like wandering around a empty island on Valentine's day! It's gonna make the entire game seem like a metaphor for my life... :S

It's pretty great, actually. I suppose for people that feel compelled to pigeonhole and compartmentalize everything they play/watch/hear into categories, DE might feel a little frustrating. But for those that don't really care what medium it falls in and can enjoy it on it's own terms, it's a great two or so hours.

It's basically a psychological horror story. And I promise, if you take the time to look at everything the answers are all there, though exactly what's going on is never explicitly spelled out. I know there were a few reviewers that seemed like they got frustrated by the lack of interactivity and seemed to skirt past a lot of what makes the experience special, but that's a huge disservice to what the developers were trying to accomplish with this game.

I'm not going to say it's a game that's going to appeal to everyone, but if you don't mind forgoing a bit of interactivity, it's a really eery and interesting story.
