I am a fan of opera, including experimental opera, so this was a really enjoyable game. You play as a woman in space investigating a planet and dealing with a recurring sequence of visions.
I found the game quite beautiful, especially Chapter 1: Sunflowers. I would listen to other interactive operas in the future.
There are only 2 or 3 chapters right now, so total listening time is about a half hour or so.
