    Relatably simple concept and controls, pleasant visuals with music to match. Something fun to play by yourself if you have a few minutes extra. For me, a ten would be if I could use my own music or maybe set up a playlist. Expand

    Floating Point first caught my attention via an article on IGN, in which the rather acclaimed Tom Francis (who had previously developed Gunpoint, a decent game in of itself) announced that he would be releasing a new (not to mention, free) game on Steam known simply as "Floating Point".
    Tom Francis described the creation as (and I quote), "It’s a peaceful game about swinging gracefully around randomly generated levels. It’s played entirely with the mouse, it’s easy to play, you can have fun with it in five minutes, and it has relaxing digital music by the excellent Form & Shape. The only objective is to collect points, and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly, smoothly and elegantly without hitting anything. As you pick up momentum, you start to glow, the bars you’re collecting rise up, the music kicks in, and your trajectory burns a bright red line in the air, drawing huge, beautiful mathematical curves of your arcing flight."
    So logically, I decided to download Floating Point (right before E3 2014 began, no less). Because, you know...quite frankly...it's free. Anyways, I must say that I was indeed pleasantly surprised by Floating Point. There's no need to worry about attacks from enemies, annoying NPCs, trolls, or PTSD. Nope, just nice and smooth swinging (as a red dot) with no clear objective other than occasionally passing through those red (and technically non-existent) pillars.
    With some relaxing music to boot, Floating Point actually serves as a great stress reliever, or as a soothing change of pace after playing some Monster Hunter and Zelda (or whatever you're into). Granted, this isn't exactly a game that should be played for than half an hour a sitting. Quite frankly, it'll become boring after that. Luckily, I can still enjoy the game a day or 2 later if that's the case.
    Overall, while Floating Point isn't going to be the 2014 Game of the Year, it is certainly quality enough to warrant a download. Not to mention, the game is free!...and it doesn't take a lot of space either! So what are you waiting for? Go download it on Steam!
