WE BECOME WHAT WE BEHOLD
a game about news cycles, vicious cycles, infinite cycles

This silly game was created by me, Nicky Case, in two months!
Here's my wobsite, my tweeter, and if you'd like to

Thank you so much for playing! <3

We Become What We Behold reviews and comments

It's a super-short completely linear "message" indie game, so you need to come in with the right expectations.  The experience of playing the game is closer to a five-minute YouTube video than a longer-form interactive game.

That said, the medium is a perfect fit for the author's intended message, which hits hard at the end, and the theme of the game seems prophetic given how much worse all of the dynamics that the game explores have gotten in the intervening years.  Graphics and gameplay design fit well with the game's intended purpose, so no complaints there.

I'm reviewing this after thinking about it out of the blue while watching the news several years after I last played it.  If the fact that it's still on my mind after so many years isn't an endorsement, I don't know what else could be -- highly recommended.

«That ending!»
