    This game has been out for a while (released almost a year ago and won several 2011 awards), but thanks to some recent buzz due to the recent Steam release, I finally got around to playing it. Needless to say, I really enjoyed it.

    Before I go on recommending the game to anyone, I want to get one thing out of the way. It is not a game. Or a traditional one anyway. More of an interactive story or visual novel. What gameplay can be found in the game isn't that great (and arguably the experience would be better without it). It is only 3-5 hours long, and not really replayable (think there's really only one "way" to experience the game). Oh, and it is a RPG Maker game, so it has all the usual "negatives" that those type of games sometimes have.

    The buzz about the game is due to its story, dialogue/writing, memorable moments, music, etc., most of which have won the game awards against other, high-profile games (Catherine, Portal 2, etc.). It definitely has an interesting plot, reminding me a bit of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Trailer and write-up from the official site:

    The game is priced at $10. Like I said earlier, it was recently released on Steam. For the next 29ish hours, you can save 20% on the game:

    They also have the soundtrack for sale, which IMO is worth getting. If I'm not mistaken, 50% of OST sales go to charities for autism (and possibly others).

    You can also try the game for free from the official site:
