A sad and moody game.
I like Californium for its mood, it is nice story

I didn't like this game. Evidently it's trying to mirror Philiip K. Dick's imaginative style and it certainly it has a very novel way of play. Philip K. Dick was an eccentric science fiction writer who unbalanced his mind from excessive drug use. He imagined stepping from one reality into another...which reality was the 'real' one? Was it all in his mind? This game tries to deliver the mind-bending PKD experience to the player but it didn't work with me. Clever, yes, but mind-bending, no. Since the graphic style is ultra cartoonish I was never convinced of either reality. Others might have a different view, but you may like it.
I am loving the art style in this game. The exposition is a bit corny and agenda-based, but I would still consider it a good buy. Be warned, though: the game lags on my 13-inch Macbook Air, DESPITE meeting minimal requirements. This seems to happen far too often with indie games, and it is kind of annoying, since Bioshock infinite, a visually demanding AAA game, runs better than Californium, an indie game.
In short, interesting mechanics and an interesting story. If you must see for yourself, I recomend waiting for a sale.
