The mere mention of thatgamecompany will always elicit a reaction among gamers. Whether you see the studio's output as games, art, or a bit of both, it's hard to deny that the developer delivers unique experiences that will challenge your view of what games can be. More of an interactive experience, flOw won't float everyone's boat, but if you can overlook its shortcomings and immerse yourself in its world, then you'll be able to see why this indie hit rose to the surface when so many others sank without a trace.
