I didn't bring over my save file from Maryland so I started over. It's a fun little game. It has nice sound effects. The artwork is simple, but the colors and music create a soothing atmosphere. It's a short little game. "I will enjoy it more when my friends leave kekekeke," says my friend of what I should say of the game. The truth, however, is I went to sleep after they left, which was hours later, after we watched Moonrise Kingdom (2012). I beat The Beach and I beat Harara Mountains. Screenshots go from 8:52PM PT* to 8:59PM PT.

I'm in Maryland and while I think I have the save file from California, I went ahead and played Skymning over anyways. Screenshots go from 8:02PM ET to 8:04PM ET*.

Note that Steam has me logged for a total of 49 minutes. My Steam profile states that I've played 0.1 hrs last two weeks/0.8 hrs on record.

I reiterate how much I love the simple artwork for this puzzle platformer. While there is color in the background, color in the sphere when using an action, and the occasional color in the foreground, the overall art style and dominantly black foreground most certainly reminds me of the art direction of the puzzle platformer Limbo (2011). Of course, complementing the artwork is the music. It's just so soothing!

I beat Old Ruins.

Note that Steam has me logged for a total of 62 minutes. My Steam profile states that I've played 0.4 hrs last two weeks/1.0 hrs on record. Doing the math, that means today I played for 13 minutes. Now let us incorporate the fact that a tenth of an hour is 6 minutes, 62 minutes isn't enough to register 1.1 hours, and 63 minutes is enough to register 1.1 hours (I added a minute of gameplay to test). Let X be my true game time on 20130118 in minutes. Then X/60 is rounded to .1 while (X+13)/60 is rounded to .4.


Under the above assumptions, X/60 would round to .1 if and only if X was between 3 and 8 minutes. (X+13)/60 would round to .4 if and only if (X+13) was between 21 and 26 if and only if X was between 8 and 13. I conclude that X is 8. If the above rounding assumption was incorrect, then we can still exclude X being 7, but we would introduce the possibility that X might be 9.
