I'm not sure how to sum this up for a review, truth be told. I have notes written from early on when I was brimming over with excitement and wonder and I'm pulling them together having lost that sense of connection with the game in its later stages. I think I would have felt differently if I'd played as a non-reviewer and walked away when I felt that interest wane instead of ploughing onward.

A meditative game of player-driven exploration, Future Unfolding has a rare and valuable commitment to letting people unfurl its discoveries at their own rate. The near total lack of guidance brings great reward.

Future Unfolding doesn't compete with the open world delights of this season's big hitters like Horizon: Zero Dawn or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but instead offers a wonderfully relaxed and immersive combat-free alternative. It's a safari rather than a big game hunt, but one that deserves to be explored.

Future Unfolding is an atypical adventure, based entirely on exploration and discovery.

There is no ‘best way’ to play this, other than in a quiet room with your headphones firmly in place and nothing to distract you.

If I didn’t have access to a map, I would have no sense of where I left, or where I ended up, or if I’d been there already.

At the outset, Future Unfolding is magical experience; an elegant world waiting to be explored, with wonder at every step. But with each discovery, the wonder disappears – and isn't replaced with anything new.

Future Unfolding is a very relaxing release. The lush environments, slow but steady pace and the overall feel of this release make for an almost Zen experience on PlayStation 4. Granted, this game is not for everyone, but if the game's trailer, screens, and overall premise haven't made you completely dismiss the game you might be someone who could greatly enjoy it.

You can love Future Unfolding, or you can hate it. If you like to explore game design and experience something truly unique, you could definitely love it. Unfortunately, the intriguing concept gets often trapped in a rigid gameplay, and that's where hate comes in. When it works, Future Unfolding is a real pleasure to watch and play.

Future Unfolding is a game with a very beautiful artistic style, but its almost non-existent gameplay makes it a very dull and monotone game.
