This week: pOnd
I delight in the smalle things,
the shape of a leafe,
the curl of sunlight on the grasses.
I set out before dawne, one foot afore the other,
to see what wonders the day might holde.
pOnd kicks things off with this little pensive lyric, immediately sending the warning bells of pretension ringing in my ears. In all honesty, I have no idea what the hell pOnd is. Is it art? Is it a pisstake? Is it just an example of the wandering mind in game form? Who knows.
There's not much I can say about this game without ruining the entire experience, short that it is, but one thing I will say is this: keep an open mind. It's another one of those visually interesting mood pieces that has a firm concept at the beginning before shaking things up in extreme fashion towards the conclusion. Just as I was beginning to find myself sucked in by the presentation and the atmospheric piano tinkling, the game made me laugh so hard that the water I'd been drinking came out of my nose.
Give it a playthrough and I'm pretty sure you'll see what I mean.
