A Slower Speed of Light Review

A Slower Speed of Light is a very interesting and well done game. The object of the game is to help a young child slow down light by collecting orbs present in a small village-like area. This area has a Silent Hill-type of feel with others wandering around in a trancelike state and ominous music in the background. The game has classic first player controls, with keyboard keys controlling motion and the mouse controlling direction. The only downside for me is that it gives me motion sickness if I play too long. The physics on the games are excellent (as you would expect from MIT) and the graphics are clean and interesting. The scenery gets even better as you collect more orbs and continue slowing light down. The changing colors will make you feel like you are in the Northern Lights. Overall, an interesting and unique game that is definitely worth playing.
