Opinions vary. I could say your avatar is an absurd and ridiculous, but I'll refrain from saying it so I don't try and convince people about my point of view without any kind of evidence or argument from my part. Still, when you say "the game sucks" without providing any reasons for it, people will just think you are a troll, therefore your comment is as valid as saying the Universe is 10000 years old. Anyway, of course the game is not for everyone, like most aren't. What we're trying to do here is to express our feelings towards it and there's no crime in that. Have a good day sir.

@fabbi That was an incredibly well written and quite an emotional comment. This just proves that what I've been trying to tell people the game is doing, is entirely accurate. Cloud Chamber is indeed a game that stimulates that part of your brain that yells "SCIENCE AND GAMING". The two words are not that far apart when it comes to meaning if you analyse it deeply. This comment proves that not only gamers aren't all shallow smucks but also proves that the incredibly well made experience that is Cloud Chamber, is indeed something people should realize is a real breakthrough in gaming. "Perfection" is a very hard thing to come by in the Cosmos, so in order to make something better, we need to understand what's wrong and solve it somehow. How many real good games came out bugged and broken in so many ways? You have World of Warcraft for instance. I was there in the beta and at launch. I remember how the game came out, lots of bugs, lots of imbalance, etc. But people had fun! It wasn't the pionner, or the first mmo but there was something definetely new and innovative there. I'm gonna make this a long post like the last one so what I mean with this is, if we give a brilliant concept, space and time to grow, it will.

Greetings, And here I am again talking about Cloud Chamber and the wonders I think it can do on everyone. I refuse to quit on spreading the word. This game can do wonders to our society as a whole and since Gamers are indeed very intelligent and most of the time dynamic people, please do give yourself the chance to experience a different approach to gaming and to science. Games are not always about turning your xbox on and kill some other players or npcs. Games are more than that. Games are an experience...it is hard to describe what an intense gaming experience is to young gamers above all, just because of the gap between technologies. In the past we looked to the story, to the plot, the characters, the twists, the dialogues, the interactivity...we couldn't care less for the graphics to be honest or if we killed anything. We wanted exploration, multiple endings..I'm trying to generalize an idea here. Of course we all loved to play action games etc...but for me, the games that touched me the most are those that almost every kid would hate nowadays - Fallout series, Icewind dale, Planescape Torment, Broken Sword, Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, Full Throtle, Ultima series, Space Quest, Wasteland...just to name a few of course... Cloud Chamber is a feeling by itself...that ghostly feeling that I'm sure every human being possesses at least once in their lifetime. Are we alone in the Universe? Is it even plausible to think about it? Makes sense somehow not to be alone but...we know that by applying what we know scientifically, in order for life to "appear" somewhere (as we know it), it takes more than water and a couple of aminoacids glued together...That ghostly feeling that makes us want to explore. Hell, we are explorers by nature, evolution made us explorers and Cloud Chamber deals with that precise feeling...the incredible feeling of desperately wanting to know why we are here and how. Of course it's a game, it's written and developed to entertain the masses, but the science in it is good and open to interpretations, which is what science is all about I guess. You've got the experimental method to judge assumed facts in real life but Cloud Chamber makes it so you use your mind and power of deduction to realize what is going on. It's all about the possibilities...there's no "the ONE answer". People keep debating because first, they want to expose their theories and secondly, they secretly want to see them refuted by other players so they can start constructing another one. We, the loyal player base, are strongly aware of the way we play the game. We see videos, we see notebooks and pictures and talk to each other. But we are not discussing who had the more headshots. We discuss string theory, quantum mechanics and special relativity, most of the time without even knowing the stuff we're writing has a name. There is a scientist in all of us and Cloud Chamber opens up that possibility, the possibility of our future being governed by scientists and not religious fanatics that can't distinguish a parrot from a bunny... Ah, don't forget the game was made by an Indie developer. Games are not easy to make and publish. Now imagine all the hard work the guys had with the actors, the plot, the twists, everything...there's quite a lot of work put into this game and as far as I know, we as gamers, should definetely congratulate the devs just by being able to put it on sale. People complaining about quicktime being a pre-requisite...who the hell cares? Seriously...that's like a very minor infraction when it comes to game lauching rules, if they even exist. Then...why do people complain about it not being free? Do you really think the Actor that plays Max got paid in bread crumbs? Seriously, nothing is really free nowadays and it's time to start giving money to inovators, to pioneers and for me, Cloud Chamber is just the start of a beautiful thing. I just hope they get enough funding for the rest of the seasons, or expansions or whatever the hell they decide to do with the game. Now, I can accept the fact the game lacks some substance when it comes to playability and everything else but great things start small and that applies to almost every important scientific discovery in human history. Things can't be done without people and unfortunately without funding or backing from more experienced companies, people or other entities. The concept they present us with Cloud Chamber is relatively new and since the subject is so so broad, it's more than normal to have players over-analysing stuff, but if everyone over-analysed most of the stuff we take for granted from the midia, from our peers, from wherever, maybe the world would be a better place and we would have accepted Science as general way of life already. I can't accept anyone stating that writing a big wall of text about something they scarcely saw on a video is vague and without depth. The interest the players showed about the Cosmos in this game is absolutely fantastic and should be praised. Do not forget most of those players probably never heard about most of the terms used there. Cloud Chamber is an innovation and I call Investigate North pioneers.
