Born to lose

21/02/2010

Isn’t the point of a game usually to win? Not in ImmorTall. In this short flash game, the player is destined to lose. I hesitate to call it losing though, since only in doing so does the game and its story reach completion.  While there are multiple endings, all of them ending in you losing in one way or another. Which makes me think, is this a game or is it an interactive work of fiction? Have a look for yourself.

I might add as a point of clarification that when the game says “Shield,” it means to position your character so as to protect your friends from dangerous objects.
