It seems to me that the moment you become addicted to the simple and repeatable game rhythm, there is a deeper layer of secret. Things don’t seem simple as it looks or is it really so?

Try it yourself, figure how to play and find fun yourself while trying not to show yourself, all by yourself. And trust me, I’m your friend, I’m Postor. So, I will not reveal the secret to you. Hard to understand anything I said? Weird, that’s on purpose …
