Forma.8 – Between a Rock and a Hard Place


Forma.8 is a mystery. The in-game progress bar tells me I’ve completed 51.6 percent of Italian studio MixedBag’s beautiful, alien adventure, and with 48.4 percent of the game ahead of me, I didn’t want to put the word “review” in the title of this article. Without knowing when, if ever, I would see an ending, I thought now is as good a time as any to take a break and commit some words to a screen.

And if you haven’t already guessed from this post’s subtitle, I’m stuck.

At some point I’ll no doubt resort to the Internet’s hive mind for clues on how to proceed, and for certain puzzles I already have, but for now I thought I’d pass on my mixed feelings about Forma.8.
