Excerpt: Sirens went off in my head as I fired up Closure for the first time. I can only guess that as I took in the game's vague narrative, minimalistic design, and unique art style, I subconsciously pronounced the game to be "artsy." Thanks to many poor experiences I've had with such titles, I tend to associate "artsy" with "pretentious," and by extension with "lacking in engagement and torturous to play.
Conclusion: Most of the puzzles are superbly created though, and any minor annoyances were wiped away by the clever gameplay and intense atmosphere. Closure is beautiful to look at, and the gameplay is clever and fun to control. Much like in the game, where you jump off a ledge clutching a light, hoping that the ground will materialise beneath you to catch you, I urge you to take a leap of faith with this wonderful puzzle platformer.
Pros: Beautifully stylised visuals. Addictive and ingenious gameplay.
Cons: Lacking a deep story. Occasional lack of imagination in puzzle design.
Summary: Closure è un puzzle game di tutto rispetto. Oltre ad introdurre meccaniche inedite nel genere, ha stile da vendere, una longevità incredibile, e, più di ogni altra cosa, è maledettamente impegnativo.
