I was hoping this would have a Platinum. I know it is a short 3 hour game, but I mean... Goosebumps had a plat, so I was hopeful. Also $20 seems a little steep for a game like this. I really enjoy puzzle/problem solving games, but I think I'll pass on this one.

I got this on PC but never played it. My buddy did though and it said it was an excellent game!

It will at least require more than one playthrough, though one of those needs to be under 1 minute (there's at least one Youtube video showing how to do that) and one needs to be under 10 minutes with all diaries. Shame about the no platinum, but I wasn't really expecting it this time xD

Played the game on PC, hated it. I'm surprised they're actually asking $20 for this garbage. Unless you really want the trophies, I would recommend just watching a playthrough on YouTube. You won't be missing out, and it's only 1 or 2 hours long (some have beaten it in under a minute).

played this on PC a while back when it was steam sale. while i have plenty to say about the gameplay, or lackthereof, i'm glad i played it for the story alone. that said, i highly suggest waiting for a significant price drop. $20 is a way too much for what you're getting here. also having played it, it was obvious this wasn't going to get a plat. it doesn't warrant it. i played it once and don't really plan on playing it again, as it would kind of dilute the overall experience.

$20?! It hasn't been released on the UK store, so I haven't seen the price, but screeeeeeew that.

Apparently there was some issues with the ratings/certification, so that's why it was only released in North America today.

The game is incredibly overhyped because it tells a story about ladies.

That's it.

That's literally the whole game. Imaginary ladies.

Barely worth $5 in my opinion.

Im going to get this game down the road thanks to the Kinda Funny crew and especially Greg Miller. I haven't played it and don't know jack about it, the developers didn't want to port this to consoles initially but it came, I will show my support for them doing this. 
Thank you for porting this game Fullbright! <3

Also it doesn't have a plat because the devs didn't want to put it in. They found the game to be too short and didn't feel like it needed one, and I agree with that as its a super short game. Props to them for doing so :)

Already played it on PC, because I'm interested in games similar to this. Honestly, not that great game. You basically explore someone's house, go through their personal stuff, and learn their secret. The secret is sure to please a certain audience, but honestly, it didn't need be what it turned out to be, and what it turned out to be is one of it's selling points. Oh well!

"game" sucks, still you shouldn't spoil it for people willing to experience it for themselves. game spoilers are never welcome.

I wasn't even aware that was a spoiler since that's the whole premise of the game.

Plus it was released over 2 years ago, that's like still complaining about GTA V spoilers.

 

But I fixed it for you.

and it wasn't released on ps4, so most of this audience hasn't played it.

Yeah, it was released about 2 and a half years ago. It's really not a big game either, and I doubt it was that big of a job to port it over to PS4. :P

Seems like $20 for Indies games are becoming a trend nowadays. A few of them aren't worth though, so you can always wait for an eventual sale.

Back to the topic, wouldn't pay $20 for this game.

I've got to agree with a lot of you guys. The game is massively overhyped in my opinion. A few hours of mundane gameplay with the big twist not even being that interesting really. Games like Journey did what this game tries to do much better.

Also $20!? What a joke...

This is $20? It hasn't released where I live but I was kind of looking forward to seeing what all the fuss was about. $20 seems like way too much though. I was hoping for around £7.99 at the most.

Hahahaha 20 fucking dollars for a game that takes a minute to finish.

 

The even more sad thing is it will probably be $30 over here. 

What a fucking joke. I don't have anything else to say about this that hasn't already been said, suffice to say that I am not a fan of the unwarranted hype it got, nor are a lot of people. 

 

If it goes on PS+ then MAYBE, and that's a big maybe. 

 

Sad thing is they're actually a fairly competent dev team. I think they made the Minvera's Den DLC in Bioshock 2 which was quite good so it's a pity they're so up their own arses about this "interactive experience". Worst thing was they actually tried to tie this in with Bioshock 2 which is just horrifying in my opinion.

Despite my comments saying it should be cheaper, I have no regrets about buying it at $20.  I thought it was an excellent game, but short on content for the price.

This was going to be sale fodder for me either way but 20 is way too steep for what it offers it would have to be at least 80% off or more for me to even consider it.

Indie Games have really taken all over the market. They're not stupid at all for setting that price. Many "intellectual" gamers will buy this
