    It's hard to fault the developer's intentions, and I appreciate the game's tranquil color palette and its pensive atmosphere. In a different context, 9.03m might have been a lovely trifle--but the lives snuffed out in 2011, and the survivors that mourn them, deserve more than just a trifle.

The world is entrancing; the music is magical; the premise is heart-warming. This is a game that you won't ever want to peel away from because of the immersion and minimalist charm. And it goes to prove that you don't need a gimmicky gameplay element or splendiferous graphics to create a work of art. A fully recommended buy. Expand

It's a game that shows emotion like no other, and relies on your empathy for other human beings, and your respect for human life. At only 12-15 minutes long, it may be short, but it is one of the deepest games I have ever played, and is dedicated to the men, women and children who died in the 2011 Japan Tsunami. A must play for everyone. Expand

    It is a very, very short game, about 15-25 minutes of not-conventional gameplay.
    It was supposed to be art, and i think they do it well, with a good atmosphere and a real good piano soundtrack.

    For those who like to have new experiences - and an emotional one - and doesn't bother themselves with not traditional gameplay mechanics.

    Before you purchase, I'd like to point out this game will only take 10-15 mins of your time.
    Regardless, the price isn't asking for much and for it you get a lovely looking interactive experience dedicated to the lives lost March 11th, 2011 in the Japanese Tsunami.

    If you've been playing too much GTA and general shooters, take a rest and give this a go.
    It's relaxing, calming and will give you some faith in humanity. With that said, it's not for everyone.

    The game didn't hit me as much as I expected, but I think that's where I personally went wrong expectation. I read some reviews as I whizzed down the steam page after the beauty of the screenshots caught my eye and when I saw that most ended up teary eyed I was driven to the purchase. I jump at the chance for independent games that evoke feelings AAA titles tend to miss, but when I played 9.03m nothing really hit me till the end. Maybe I'm still recovering from my bad day.

    7/10 While I appreciate the wonderful message behind this creation, I think more information could have been given so that I could feel a wider sense of empathy to the victims shown. Though I have to say the ending really hit home, and I was left with goosebumps and a whole load of feels. Recommended.

    Side note: If you liked Dear Esther, and you are a fan of small indie goodies as much as I am, go for it.

    This is not a game for everyone. This is a game for people who want to look a tragedy in the eye and feel loss.

    In some ways, it's not so much of a game as an interactive experience. It's not about winning or losing, but in appreciating. However, though it does effectively tug at the heart strings, it could have gone a bit further into giving a bit more meaning and context as it continued.

    On the whole, it's a bit of an unusual experience, probably worth the money if this is your style, but not for everyone.

The purpose of this game is to honor those who lost their lives in the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, not to provide an exciting or entertaining gameplay experience.

    So why did I give this such a low score? As a game, it just doesn't stack up. This game can be summarized as 8 minutes of holding the W key to walk forward, 1 minute of spinning items, and 3 minutes of watching butterflies fly away.
