Thanks to Girls on Games I discovered Florence, a cute game about Florence Yeoh. Florence is a normal girl who has a mainstream daily routine. And then she meets a guy, and things happen. I loved the game because I could relate to the main character, Florence. She’s intelligent, but she’s doing something she doesn’t like. Things change when she gets inspiration from her boyfriend.
I wouldn’t precisely call Florence a game, but an interactive comic book. It has almost no script. Everything you do is drawn, and it’s beautiful. Even Florence’s gray days are cute. She spends all day working on something she hates and talks to her mother and then goes back to home. She’s a very lonely individual. Although she had friends as a kid, as she grew up, they got far from each other. But one day, she listens to lovely music, and everything changes for her.
The artwork and the colors in this App explain volumes. You’ll notice that at the beginning everything is monotone, however, from the moment she listen to the music, she feels like flying. When we fall in love, it’s almost like we’re flying too. So, she meets this guy on the street who plays music, and they end up talking one day. And even conversations in the App are cute. You need to order puzzles! I think it’s brilliant.
And, as all things with love, she starts to open her heart to new horizons. Both of them inspire each other. The boyfriend going pro, and she starts considering art. She likes to draw, but that wasn’t practical when she was a child. Her mother told her to choose something secure.
The brilliance of this small jewel isn’t the artwork, although it’s impressive. The important is the message. Regardless if you meet someone for life or for just a portion of it, you can get inspiration from them. Also, consider what you’re doing now: is it really what you want to do? Or is it something practical that someone told you to do? Are you living your life? Or are you living the life others want you to live? That’s a strong message to pass along with a cute but straightforward App.
Florence has amazed me for its simplicity, cuteness, and messages. As I said, it’s more an interactive book that you can re-read again and again. And, as I said before, the message tunes with me. I can see myself in Florence. For a long time, I did something I didn’t want to do. I thought that I had to make others happy. And that can make you an unfortunate individual.
Florence isn’t very long. I finished it in around thirty minutes. Despite it, I think that the message and the fact that you can go back to it as many times as you want is the crucial thing here. When the mundane and routine is presented to you in such a cute and simple way, it can rock your world. I’m so happy I read the review on Girls on Games. Now I have a perfect App to remind me that I can too make my dreams come true. I can let others inspire me. And, ultimately, I’m the one who decides everything about my happiness.
If you decide to download Florence, and you play it, let me know what you think in comments. Also, remember to let the audio on, since the music is lovely as well.
