January

The passing of a season always makes me nostalgic for it. Lord knows that I'm never too thrilled with skidding my Honda on the icy roads of winter, but now that the May-Flowers-bringing showers of April are upon us (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least), I find myself wishing for one last walk in a swirling frozen cloud of flurries. While Chione is quite unlikely to heed my prayers, I can take solace in January, an interactive art webtoy release from Rich Vreeland. It's an impressive debut release that manages to truly capture the beauty and melancholy of a walk of a blustery winter's evening.

I'm not usually into the "interactive art" stuff very much, but I liked this one a lot.

When are we going to get an interactive art game that doesn't try to depress the hell out of the player or at least tries to do something new?
The first few were okay, because they were the first few. They were new.
Now these are just boring and unoriginal, nobody is even trying to make a good interactive art game anymore.
They grab retro graphics, soothing tones and mash it together with no effort at all.

Oooh, well done.

I don't think I've played something that evokes a moment so well.

Very strange... Rather ethereal. A little creepy.

If I walked too close to the edge of the screen, I had a tendency to miss what the words were. Perhaps if there was someway to set the text so that it doesn't get cut off?
Of course, I could just stay in the middle of the screen, but still... Just saying...

I really don't understand what people are saying about it being depressing. It doesn't seem all that depressing to me~
Reminded me somewhat of Electroplankton ^_^

nice experience but I also was unable to read a lot of the text as it was off the side of the screen, or indistinguishable from the snow-covered house.

Wow. O: I got to 150 just standing there listening to the music... :}

I got to 200 before I got bored. It's very nice and pretty, and I'm sure that it does have some meaning behind it, but it's gameplay is lacking.
