Haven't tried it myself yet, but lets use this thread for impressions.

I tried it the other day. My initial reactions were "WTF!? This is some pretty twisted stuff" and "I can't believe Fred went from LBA to this". Those are not negative reactions though; In general my impressions from the experience are very positive.

It's a unique kind of game he's is working on there. I got the feeling of it being a true labor of love. Looking forward to seeing/trying more of it as things move along.

Well not as detailed as the post I put in their forum but, the game looks really cool.
It seem to be very difficult and challenge, creepy and funny.

There are few things I didn't like but easier to address if they desire, others that I liked.

One of the things I enjoy was to play the game using Chromecast with loud sound. That was fun .

How did you try it? I still can't login, get error 503 - Service Temporarily Unavailable. Guess they had to use something more reliable than a wordpress blog on a free hosting.

They make an initial invite to the blog after the ulule campaign.
I registered after that and this week just followed the beta e-mail I received.
I just had to agree with the license and the game was available to play.

Care to elaborate on this...?

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Yes, I recieved the letter, but I can't login to the blog or forums. I'm still getting "Service Temporarily Unavailable". Maybe they hate my IP? I tried to login through proxy, but the same. More than a week has passed, they should fix it.

That sounds awesome. I'm sorry I can't be more involved... I got so many things in my life right now I barely have any time to myself. I'll definitely buy/play the final version.
