Passage: Less a video game than a poignant rumination on mortality
One of the games we talk about on our May 19th show is Passage. I was glad that our guest, John Sharp, brought it up because I think it’s one of the most artistically fascinating games I’ve ever come across. In the game, you start as a person on the left side of the screen. You move left to right through different obstacles. Along the way you come across another character who can stay with for a while. I don’t want to give away too much of what happens but it’s really pretty beautiful and sad and moving. You can play it by going here.
