I've spotted this on the store and am intrigued by it.
However I'm undecided as to whether or not to take a punt and purchase it - knowing nothing about it.
Anyone picked it up? what made you go for it and the end result are you happy/was it worth it?
Thinking the same myself. Its by the same people behind Linger in the Shadows so its like an interactive experience but more immersive.
EDIT: IGN say its only 90 minutes in length but the game certainly warrants a second playthrough to see the different choices you could have made and their respective ramifications.
As a Move game I can't recommend it.
The Move controls are sluggish and imprecise to say the least, I realise the game is supposed to be dreamy/trippy/whatever but the game feels like a dismebodied hand mounted on the front of a tank where you constantly find you have to reverse and try again to do the simplest things.
Yeah I see Gamecentrals review this morning. Just their pros & cons was enough to decide it for me.
In Short: The visuals are amazing but the game's moral quandaries are impossible to care about without any context, let alone any decent gameplay or controls.
Pros: Superbly crafted visuals and atmospheric music. Some imaginative set pieces and moral choices.
Cons: Horrible controls and laughably silly motion controls. Illogical puzzles and little that could be classified as real gameplay. Obscure storytelling seems more lazy than enigmatic.

Dude, you really gotta make up your own mind. This isn't a traditional game and you need to treat it as such. If you loved Linger in Shadows, you're much more likely to appreciate the approach with this one. The trailers are a good representation, I'd say, and if you're in the right frame of mind- sleep-deprived, for example- it will gel in a freaky, hallucinogenic kind of way.
The motion controls aren't all that bad, minor grievances at times but make sure you select if you're right or left-handed. Let me tell you, it's really awkward if you choose the opposite...
As for 'illogical puzzles', I can't honestly say I dilly-dallied for much of the game. All made sense to me... Well, excusing parts of the story in true Linger in Shadows style.
