Better Than The Rest

Hi.
Let me tell you why you should play Better Than The Rest.
First of all, in this game you've multiple choice about your behavioural forks. Needless to say it's a feature.
For second, it's all carefully hand-pixelated. I personally took care of each pixel on screen.
Third, it's not your average pixelated adventure game. Its story, sounds and music are designed and engineered to make the game stand on its own.
Fourth, it actually enhance your mind. Its meaning maybe is one of the deepest you'll ever find in a game. And keeping playing it will make you understand what does it mean.

Now some hint on the plot. Or not.
Well, let's say that even a tiny hint about its story will be a huge spoiler on its emotional effectiveness.
I'll leave here some screenshot to satisfy your curiosity.
Beware: the screenshots' chronological order is jumbled up (on purpose) and they represent only a small bit of the game's events.
You don't want to get any spoiler from the screenshots?
Watch them eyes closed.

Ok, we've finished (with bold too).
It's time to play.

Oh, are you still reading? Maybe you want to know more about this game.
All right, here you have some cold technical information.

One last thing (and sorry for the bold, but it's a really important thing to me):
Making games requires time.
And despite Einstein's theories, time is money.
Since I'm giving you my time for free, I'm also giving you my money for free.
If you're feeling lucky, good. You are.
