I'm sort of a... astounded by the potential of this thing here. Take away gameplay, takeaway lose condition, take away anything game nonsensical and there is plenty of space for interesting experience. A character (or a spectator, a group of spectators/characters, or perhaps narrator) stays in the same "room" and the room changes. The environment is unnaturally alive which can be very magical. I don't know, it tickles my imagination Smiley

Cool that you were so inspired by it. Smiley

I didn't get as much out of the game itself, but I liked the idea you describe. Almost reminds me of Back to the Cubeture, which had a great visual style though was a bit too puzzle-y for my tastes.

I got to admit that I've played it for a minute or two as it wasn't really anything special. Like a platformer with moving platforms. But the idea of changing environment while _Something_ or _Someone_ can move around or even stand still in one location is very interesting. This _One_ could either move around and explore changing environment or perhaps experience the changes while he stays still and any interaction is purely abstract (with sounds, appearing words, images, etc.).
I'm not sure would I ever like to explore it myself but I definitely see potential in it ^_^
