In a recent essay, London Books Review contributor John Lancaster complains that many games feel too much like work, a matter of "competitive, repetitive, quantifiable, measured progress towards goals determined by others" rather than playfulness or escapism. There's a certain truth to this - prioritising as they do steady investment over instant gratification, statistical achievement over sensory or imaginative thrills, the RPG and MMO genres in particular aren't worlds away from the daily grind of a corporate banker. Lancaster devotes a paragraph to The Movies, Peter Molyneux's take on the running of a film studio, which he describes as "almost as much of a budget-juggling, ego-massaging, logistics-forecasting pain in the bum as it would be in real life" - an example to which we might add that of, say, Nintendogs, a miniature management exercise with cute flicky ears. "Most video games," Lancaster concludes, "aren't nearly irresponsible enough."

Which leads us nicely to ThatGameCompany's Flower, an experience so luxuriantly laid-back, so entirely pressure-free, that the first thing I wanted to do when I finished the preview build was go to sleep (at which point, sadly, The Boss emailed to demand another ten-page feature). In Flower, the world of rush hours and paychecks is kept at a firm remove, a droning grey backdrop glimpsed through the window of a run-down apartment. The game's ample rewards, rather, are a matter of colour, light and sound.

Flower's premise is abstract but lucid. You must enter the dreams of the sagging plants on your windowsill in order to restore them to health. Each dream takes the form of a darkened verdant landscape, and the player is manifest as a gust of wind. Moving (or rather blowing) yourself over flower buds causes them to blossom, and as more and more buds open the earth and sky brighten from sepia dullness to National Geographic splendour. Once everything is in full bloom, the dreaming plant will blossom likewise.

色彩绽放的一刹那还是挺动人的。

光看创意值得一玩。故事约等于没有,音效略差,音乐不够好,操作略别扭,关卡设计不太行,游玩体验不够流畅,要贴地飞行,会晕,但是!!光看创意值得一玩。流程只有一个半小时,值得体验

操作的手法太过于蛋疼

我也不知道说什么好,和风之旅人相比明显缺乏代入感

文艺作品的典范,禅什么的实在不怎么懂,文艺作品还是太难理解了,故事的内涵什么的也分析不出来,文艺是真的,倒是挺治愈的,最后一章还是挺温暖的,流程极其短,2个小时左右,操作方面有些不尽人意,比较难受。

大师,我还是没有悟。。。 game play给我的快感并没有多大,所表达的人与自然的想法对我也没有多大触动
