So it's Tuesday, so I have to find other ways to entertian myself. I checked my email and then got sucked in to gmails RSS feeds, mostly because they are tailored to me. Anyway, one of the posts was about free games on the web, and Cloud peeked my interest. Ok, so the idea of flying around picking up clouds is kinda silly, but the website was really well put together and the movie you can download there made me want to play. Plus the price was right :) So you play the role of a sick boy who has nothing to do but dream of clouds and play with them in his mind. I really felt like I was playing a game put together by a real company rather than some students in California. But then I stopped flying around and started to play the game. The controls were awkward, and they were so similar that I sometimes wanted to pickup clouds, but ended up dropping them instead. The music was awesome, the opening movie was inspiring, and the gameplay was fun for a second. I'd check it out if I were you.
