IFRO

At different stages in our lives, the signs of love may vary: dependence, attraction, contentment, worry, loyalty, grief, but at heart the source is always the same. Human beings have the rare capacity to connect with each other, against all odds.

Amazing that a game this short could have an amusing list.

This is-- despite the coding-- really a one-room, one-puzzle game. (Sorry, but I insist on thinking of my PC as being SOMEWHERE.) As one-puzzle games go, it's a lot better than last year's peculiar Koan, and somewhat less frustrating than Spotlight from a few years ago. I suppose there tends to be one of these in every comp, and it makes a nice sort of palate cleanser between longer games.

As far as the puzzle goes, I knew instantly what I had to do, but took a little while to do it because interaction with the flashlight did not work quite the way I expected. I imagine that the main concept is one you either get right away or don't get at all (though if you sat through any school physics demonstrations, it should look familiar).
