7 Minutes: HyperNihilistic Indie Platformer

Tell RPS something we don't already know.

This was brought to my attention by Bit-tech’s recent round-up of Indie stuff. It’s another of those hyper-short indie-games which use a bagful of semi-traditional mechanics to do something a bit emotional. And I’ve written more about this than I was planning, so I’m lobbing it beneath the cut…

As well as those who like an intimate retro adventure, it’s also worth noting that its training island is a good introduction to Rogue-like-controls for those of you who are too intimidated by all that ASCII.
