    If you jump into Continue expecting The Legend of Zelda or Minecraft, it might completely annoy you. But if you don’t mind playing a very different sort of game, then this is one worth looking into. Continue?9876543210 is strangely compelling, and I want to experience more games like it.

    If you’re willing to dedicate the time to truly understand it, though, then Continue will take you on an original journey, one which you’ve never embarked on before and one which you'll find nowhere else.

    As a game, it’s unpolished, but as a rumination on mortality, it’s an interactive poem.

    Ultimately, it seems a bit unfair to give Continue? a score—it’s a game that can mean everything or nothing depending greatly on your worldly interpretation. Where games like Gone Home and Papers Please have a clear fundamental message tugging on your principles, Continue? is either answering life’s questions or presenting some you weren’t considering before—apparently while “late at night with a glass of wine or some weed.”

    Continue?9876543210 doesn't exist to entertain us, but to expose the author's conscience and invite us to a journey through his vision. As a work of art, some will probably love it; just don't expect to find too much of a “game” in it.

    Some will see Continue?9876543210 as a success, masterfully drawing sentiment from poignant (though sometimes clumsy) words, moodily lit pixels and brooding, bubbling music. Others will find a game with simplistic mechanics and frustrating repetition. In truth, both sides have a point.

    Repetitive, boring and pretentious. It’s not how you make an ambitious game. [03/2014, p.59]

    Fascinating premise destroyed with dull gameplay, hard to read dialogue text and a sense of confusion which in theory should help with the message the game is trying to prevent but instead just ends up being frustrating. Was pulled in by the trailer and concept was turned away by everything else. Expand
