Mosaic paints all its scenes with great care and, while it might be a slow burner, it’s as cerebral as it is emotional and tells an enthralling story.

More an experience than a game, shows the art side of the gaming world.

Through this game, not only is Krillbite telling us to pursue meaningfulness, they’re leading by example. I happily recommend Mosaic to anyone in search of poetic storytelling experience that’s only possible through video games.

Mosaic might only last a few hours, but within that time it has moments that can stick with you, bring you joy amidst the monotony of everyday life. There's a message here to say that there is always a glimmer of hope even if it isn't always obvious, which is a good message to send. Plus, there's a talking goldfish.

Mosaic is a remarkable narrative game, suggestive in its small length, telling of a silent revolution in an oppressive dystopian society.

Mosaic is an excellent illustration of a modern corporate society where individuality is suppressed and numerous applications try to standardize the life of an individual. Meaningless work with fines and restrictions and the same colorless life turn people into limp boxes of garbage that are thrown out in the backyard. With all this melancholy and gloom around the main character, you can compare the work of Krillbite even with the recent "Joker", which is very consonant with the creation of the Norwegians, but does not suggest, unlike the history of the northerners, a happy ending.

Depression, isolation, and burnout is the name of the game in Killbrite Studio's latest title, Mosaic, but as you start to see things for what they really are, will you be able to escape the grasping hands of control once and for all?

Mosaic is a bleak and surrealist game that, though brief, tells a captivating story about human connection.

Mosaic isn't always great, but it's a fun and lovely game that manages to hold attention easily enough. Also it has Blip Blop.

Mosaic is the plight of the office worker reimagined for the not-to-distant dystopian future. The tedium, the soullessness, the loneliness — it's all here, presented with sleek, stylish art and simple, effective mechanics. But, the burden of virtual corporate slavery is perhaps too much to bear; the game is prone to frequent bouts of monotony that pull players out of the experience.

Mosaic a gorgeous little slice of dystopian hell-life, for what that’s worth. It just… doesn’t bring anything new to the table.

A game about breaking free from monotony that gets, perhaps inevitably, a little monotonous.

Mosaic tries to send some positive signals towards one of the most important issues that modern human is facing right now, and it deserves credit for that; but in the meantime, the developers forgot that it is a video game and should be fun and entertaining, rather than being boring and dull.

Mosaic’s moving dioramas produce strong and memorable images of a dystopia that’s all too real. The gameplay, however, seems to miss the point.

Criticism without nuance of the consumer society and the deadly routine of the employee, Mosaic develops a style, a subject but remains an extremely harsh experience. Difficult to recommend it as a video game, its final form seems more suited to that of a short film, the interaction is already extremely limited.

Like a lot of middling and so-so titles in years past, the "so-close" conclusion that something greater, more impactful — or at least enjoyable — has gone horribly amiss is always far more regrettable than an otherwise rotten-to-its-core excuse for a game.
