Unwording only has an approximate run time of about 2 hours, and while the game does offer both an easy and normal difficulty there’s really very little difference with the exception of the availability of hints. The solutions to the puzzles are often pretty transparent and straightforward. It’s easily a one and done type of experience, unless you unintentionally miss a few of the interactions and want to see them on a subsequent playthrough or are trying to mop up missed achievement.
The opening and final thirds are mostly fine. If you can tough out the middle bit, the game might just be worth it. But that's still a huge ask, and that part of the game is awful enough that I wouldn't blame anyone for not wanting to give Unwording a chance.
This little game can greatly help seeing the positive things in the world instead of the negative ones. There are a lot of bugs and issues to fix though.
