It works best as a piece of art and catharsis than as a fully enjoyable videogame. It has its moments and its surreal landscape certainly is attractive, but the game looks as a too private experience that only its creator will fully understand.

The impression it provides is that something deep and meaningful is hidden in its beautifully realised world, but the glacial pacing and slightly frustrating controls seem intent on keeping it in the dark.
