“Interactive Art” is what the creators of Linger in Shadows label this experience as and never before has a term been applied better than in this case. Linger in Shadows has minimal gameplay, no story, or length for that matter. It is a six minute long movie with certain pauses for puzzles. The puzzles are not that long and always end in an explosion followed by the next section of the movie. The first one of these really surprised me because I didn’t know what I did, the screen just exploded and moved on. The “game” is very unique and anyone interested in art (which if you play videogames you should be) should really check this out. Especially for the price there is no excuse to not give this a shot.
