Flow is a lovely indie video game by thatgamecompany. In Flow, the player navigates a series of two-dimensional (2D) planes with an aquatic microorganism that evolves by consuming other microorganisms. You can also de-evolve if you happen to hit an enemy microorganism.
This game is really relaxing, and quite beautiful in its simplicity. There isn’t much to say besides that!! 🙂
My rating? 4 out of 5 stars.
According to Wikipedia….
In Flower, the player controls the wind, blowing a flower petal through the air using the movement of the game controller. Flying close to flowers results in the player’s petal being followed by other flower petals. Approaching flowers may also have side-effects on the game world, such as bringing vibrant color to previously dead fields or activating stationary windmills. The game features no text or dialogue, forming a narrative arc primarily through visual representation and emotional cues.
Of the three games, this is my least favorite. I laboured through it, and I’m glad it was only a few hours long. The neat thing is that the game is controlled with a playstation controller that allows motion. Using the controller you move it in the direction you want the wind to move.
If you think you might be into this, then go for it. 🙂
My rating? 3 out of 5
All in all, if you want to play these games, I suggest buying the Journey collection. You’ll get all 3 games for one great price.
