"Be afraid of life, fear the afterlife"

Evalué par / Nov 15, 2012

The game forbidden in iOS, now for Android

We face one of the most controversial games ever, a game about the quintessence of mobile industry, different points of view on how afterlife should be and, by the way, a platform game with odd physics, all at once. Be warned, even when this game doesn't cease to be a casual game after all, it isn't a game designed to be fun per se, hence the lack of color saturation, silly jokes or a catchy soundtrack.

Game puts us under the skin of those poor souls who have committed suicide when working in a well-known factory, every one with his own dogmas about death and what happens next. The non Western approach to afterlife may make feel both Western and Eastern players disoriented at first, but it's an original touch in the end. Every stage is set around an afterlife concept, everything pretty macabre,

Design can only be qualified as gloomy as awesome. However, it seems that this game has been ported to Android in a too hasty way, because controls are too difficult and game can quickly become nearly unplayable. We would recommend this game for anyone who wants to look for serious casual gaming after funny casual gaming, but we must also remind you to check the "what's new" section to be sure that Benjamin Poynter has fixed up what he should. Anyway, a game that deserves all our attention.

Description originale du développeur
UPDATE. 1.1. Fixes. Optimized through updated SDK (4.2). Crashes should be less a burden. Slight mechanic issue in stage 2 fixed. Apologies for wait. Desperate measures taken on eve of the IMGA.

After Apple's Removal : This is a game about the collective afterlives of seven overworked laborers who committed suicide in the Foxconn camp, commissioned by Apple. I am being quite critical of them and their human rights violations.

Before Apple's Removal : A cerebral, fantasy driven application about events that are true and currently exist. In a Permanent Save State is a game that falls into the evolving category of 'serious games' or if you will 'games for change'. The interconnected narrative it tells sheds nameless perspective upon the Western spectacle vs. the Eastern dream. Furthermore, has a root in cultural truisms which define the aesthetic and faith for those involved. There is an effort made to deconstruct these notions and the video game form itself. Those who assemble the dreams of this world now have their own at a devastating cost.

    Ce jeu à son univers bien à lui et cherche à nous transmettre un message sur l'envers du décors de la fabrication de nos smartphones . Graphiquement intéressant. La jouabilité devient incompréhensible dès le niveau 2. Après, on adhère ou pas aux
