Description

The critically-acclaimed breakout-hit from art game designer Jason Rohrer. Passage is a tiny, touching, five-minute game about life.

"More than any game I've ever played, it illustrates how a game can be a fantastically expressive, artistic vehicle for exploring the human condition." Clive Thompson, Wired

"Passage may look primitive but it's an absolute pinnacle of videogame development." Andy Chalk, The Escapist

"Portal is a fine game-nothing less than excellent... Passage is even better." Nick Montfort, MIT

You can read an in-depth profile of Jason Rohrer, along with an extensive discussion of Passage, in Esquire Magazine's December 2008 "Genius" issue.

What's New in Version 3.1

Fixes an iPhone-specific bug that caused too many treasure chests to be empty.

Hipster Gold

:
Need to remind yourself that you are more sophisticated and emotionally complex than the average everyday tetris playing chump? This game is for you. Strap on your sneakers, distressed jeans, ironic T-shirt and sports coat and whip this gem out at your local starbucks for maximum smug hipster fun. Or, go pay a homeless man a dollar for a poem. Either way, you know you and your hybrid vehicle are the future.

It's 98% art, 2% game

:
If you look online, you'll find a devoted following for this "game." However, there are just as many people who hate it (myself included).

I get what the author was trying to do (and I won't spoil it here). My interpretation is that it's more an emotional exercise and reflection than it is a game. But that's the point -- Passage is exactly as you interpret it to be. Apparently, many people find it to be an interesting thought experiment that evokes strong emotional responses. I didn't.

Personally, I found it to be an interesting metaphor but not at all an interesting application nor game. If such a program moves someone to tears (as recounted by several players), I fear perhaps we've all become too sociopathic. I won't say it's not worth the $0.99, as it's apparently worth much more to many people. But for me personally, I found it to be a waste of five minutes and a dollar.

5/5 stars

Great

I was looking for a fun game. I stumbled upon a touching story. I am glad I did.
