By simply being an interactive experience, ‘The Longest Road on Earth’ won’t be for everyone, but if you’re a fan of the genre or want some ‘chill out time’, or even just want something to serve as food for reminiscent thoughts, I implore you to find a moment to take a stroll down this road. If nothing else, it’s a reminder to stop and smell the roses every once in a while. Life’s too short not to.

The Longest Road on Earth works like a video game Rorschach test. You paint a little of yourself onto the canvas of the story and that, in turn, is what you get from it.

Four stories of normal life without words and dialogues, four stories that talks through images and music like no other. The Longest Road on Earth shows the fragments of our very existence.

The Longest Road on Earth is an experience as captivating as it is thorny. A game that has very little gameplay, a way of posing various stories with very limited player participation. And a very special visual, sound and narrative work that will touch and excite those who connect with it.

Emotionally satisfying music with beautiful visuals has helped The Longest Road on Earth to convey its message in the most fulfilling way possible. It may not be a full-on spectacle affair and unlike its name, it may not be the longest of experiences but it gives you more than you need on the emotional side of things.

The Longest Road on Earth is still relatively successful. Its unique and interesting gimmick allows it to reach places that other indie games have yet to travel, although it does fall into limitations with just how engaging it can be thanks to its pacing and self-inflicted restrictive nature. Nonetheless, fans of character-centric experimental works will likely want to give this a go, and it's a useful blueprint for potential future innovation, too.
