The game that makes people cry

`Dragging clouds through the sky. That’s the most exciting activity you can do in Cloud, a new computer game where you play a young boy who flies through the air above a small group of islands.

Add in slow melodic piano music and beautiful water-colour graphics, and Cloud becomes the only relaxing game I can ever recall playing.

The game goes beyond the usual, hopelessly basic, range of emotions elicited by computer games: anger, frustration and aggressiveness.

“People have written to us and said they cried when they played the game,” [some woman associated with the game] says.’

I’m gonna download it and see if it drives me to tears. 🙂
