I dont get it??
« on: September 04, 2010, 07:49:55 PM »
This game is as amazing as Quintessence:TBV.

But I really dont get the story?
why does the place go on fire then not? Is it realy the bird phoning her??Why do both disappear at the end? why do things disappear(not noticed this, but this was posted in some one else thread that this happens throughout the game)..

Great atmosphere ( if not slightly eerie)
good job reives!!

The game is for interpretation. :seraismile: Many people have asked Reives what it was about, but I'm pretty sure that he doesn't even know himself. XD

You can look around for theories in the "The Mirror Lied" pages. ;)

You know, it's probably the same as symbolist/impressionist literature. You don't even have to understand it, you just have to catch the feeling. Sometimes the inner meanings are so complex they can't even be explained by literature scientists.
And asking Reives about it is no fair. You can't ask Rimbaud either, "What the hell were you thinking, dude?," right?
Also, I very much hate when teachers tell "the poet wanted to say this and that...", because that's rubbish, since we. can't. know. for. sure.
Umm, I'm getting slightly off-topic. Sorry about that. ^^"

Speaking of..

I felt like a world around me is crumbling and no matter what I do, it's going to sh*t.. I will die and nothing will prevail.. I felt depressed, gloomy and low-spirited.. I was losing hope with every puzzle I solved.. The music didn't add anything to my happiness either..

!!SPOILER!!
At the end, when she shot herself I suddenly felt empty.. I seriously didn't have any feeling whatsoever and I found myself starring at the computer screen for at least 2 minutes without moving a muscle.. Until I realized it, of course..

So, yeah.. I have no idea what happened.. It just felt wrong and hopeless

Interesting game though.. Never saw anything like it before

Now go play the demo of Lyra's Melody to put you in a good mood again. We don't want to have a nihilistic attitude spread here. :)
