Agreed. It's easily one of my favorite games, because it works on so many levels. I am eagerly anticipating Jonathan Blow's next game.I found the level design to be superb and the whole game to be one of the best examples of how gaming is an art.
That's one of the appeals, in my mind, and a good example of how this game can be seen as art. The story - as well as all the symbols in the game - are left up to you, the player / viewer - to interpret. The fact that Blow hasn't come forward to really explain any of it helps a lot. What does the game and it's story mean to you, especially now that you've finished it? The fact that you're even contemplating what it could mean is a sign of how the game affects you. It's like when you walk out of a good movie or set down a novel, and that feeling of how you're somehow changed by what you've witnessed or experienced (only in a good way). It's rare to find a video game that evokes such similar reactions.Just finished this yesterday. I loved it gamewise, but the story left me rather confused. I think you have to read a lot into it to get anything.
