The originality of the gameplay along with the always fresh ideas keep it on top. The ending is top class the art direction is eye candy.
Same genre as Limbo, Papo & Yo, Journey, Unfinished Swan etc. this game is the best along with Journey and has a better gameplay. The music is hauntingly serene and dramatic.
Only drawback is its duration which is 3 hours even for the achievement completion and even if you go on the stray path to explore. None of the other games is so short, especially on the first playthrough. Maybe this time we could use some repetition. Because of the incredible gameplay, we would get bored. Nonetheless, the puzzles were not too difficult as to come to a deadend even for younger audiences.
With that said, this is one of the best "emotional gaming" has to offer.
