that french stuff reminded me of this:

WTF is it? Its called Bientôt l'été

I watched the videos and still can't tell wtf valve was thinking (it wasn't greenlit). I'm not even sure if its a game. I think someone was in an arts and crafts mood the day they approved it or something.

Lulz. No idea. Though in Quebec they say 'A beintot' all the time - i.e. see you soon.
Its hilarious reading over the community posts for this:

Apparently, even if you can stomach the type of "game" this is, it won't even work in "multiplayer" and playing it in AI mode takes away the entire point of the game.
The few suckers who purchased it generally have given bad reviews to it.
No one on my friends list owns it, usually even with indie niche games, SOMEONE on my friends list has it.

Edit: Oh and here's a link to a thread where the designer chimes in
http://steamcommunity.com/app/229600/discussions/0/846944689695935356/
I like these various quotes in that thread from the designer:

Give it a chance. For yourself.

In style they refer to many of Marguerite Duras' films in which she juxtaposes text that is read alongside images that don't directly relate to the words.

So to be effective, art will need to mask as pulp, be simple, so it can be accepted by the unaccustomed masses. Even if your art is intended for an elite, it still needs to be able to pass for shallow because otherwise the people who enjoy it risk public scorn, or simply prevent scorn by ignoring the art.

Anyway, it's obvious that any sort of education or cultural background will help one enjoy art better.

In my opinion, the artist should not care too much about the audience.



Needless to say, I won't be giving this a chance. I buy games to play and have fun, not be condescended to, sorry.
