Please, a tense ten-minute experience has a Linux build available

Posted by , | Views: 5,890

Got a few minutes to burn? Why not try out the short experimental experience that Please offers. Developed by somewhat, it delivers something quite surreal and freaky.

In an alternate timeline where we won the war, you are the repair person. You fix things. You keep things running. You do what you're told. We asked you so nicely.

It's short—really short. About ten minutes my playtime ended up as but even so it's memorable. It has such a strange, thick thick atmosphere to it, certainly got under my skin a little. You know something is good and has your interest, when someone simply walking into your office makes you physically jump out of your chair…maybe that's just my nerves.

It's not exactly a horror game though, it's hard to really describe. It's left me with so many questions that I really want an answer to. The shortness is part of why it works in this case, but still I want more.

If you do try it put on some headphones, turn them up a bit and make sure your room is dark for the real experience with this one. Linux version worked great on Manjaro, no issues.

It must be great to show the visits then...

Hey Liam, you switched to Manjaro recently, isn't it? Have you given up on Ubuntu?

Yes I switched when the Ubuntu 32bit stuff happened. Not the first time, I'm not a die-hard x distro user, I just use whatever I fancy at the time really. No issues with Manjaro, literally none. Everything work as expected but this is waaay off-topic ;)

I find the screen distortion in the screen edges somewhat ... interesting ... it reminds me on old PSOne games but even more extreme

Edit: run also flawlessly on openSUSE

Well, that certainly was a interesting experience. Definitely not time wasted. A short but tense and interesting experience.
