Okay, I love it.
First I was thinking, "Celestia, this game is boring."
Then came the first cinematic.
You really work a lot on this point, and the results are very good for this kind of game.
And the more I played, the more I saw cinematics, the more I understood.
It's not a game, it's some kind of an interactive experience.
Like a video but you gotta experience yourself that something won't lead you to happiness (the game part) and that you have to focus on something else (like Scoot). Items are useless, levels can go endlessly, and you keep dieing.
But it's a good thing.
