“I found the ending quite moving. A thoughtful critique smartly grounded in its simplicity, Fielding found the perfect way to cap off your soldier’s exploits.” – Adam Paris, Indie Statik
“…as with the rest of the game, these snippets and bits of writing are ultimately a tool – rather expertly utilized by Fielding – for creating an illusion, or a sense, of place – and at the very end of the game, a very specific mental space that the game ultimately, laudably, inhabits. Inescapable…made me confront my own mortality as a gamer and a reviewer.” – Martyn Zachary, The Slowdown
Now at the lower price of US$4.99 on Windows, Mac and Linux, with a 10% discount for the launch week.
