MIND: Path to Thalamus
"Wrapped in a mindbending tale, the gameplay of “MIND” focuses on changing the very weather in order to solve puzzles: the player will cycle between day and night, modify the levels of fog and rain and even travel in time between seasons, changing the environment to advance the gameplay-driven story —indeed, the mechanics are directly related to who the protagonist is, what has happened to him and everything he is doing: a man trapped in his own mind, he must use all the tools at his disposition to escape to reality."

"It's exceptionally smart. And not what you'd be expecting if you read a blurb on paper. It does some terrific things with how it explores the way the mind works, what we convince ourselves of and how we view the external world. It's a story about redemption and salvation, sure, but in unexpected and emotive ways. Ways designed to appeal to the cynical part of our brain that's just a little bit sick of these feel-good personal pilgrimages.
It's a remarkable, uplifting and refreshing experience. The environmental storytelling alone is enough to tug on the heart strings, and when the plot's concluded it's impossible not to feel a ray of hope, like sunlight through the clouds, clearing away the fog."
