First... whoa. Between the mood crafted by the graphics and music and the creative visualization sparked by the journal questions, this game felt meditative. I found it surprising and enjoyable... and I loved how the flow of the questions created a story/journey.

I did! I saw at least one typo (it's instead of its), but nonetheless, I really enjoyed The Walk. I'm definitely going to replay when I'm in a different mood and see how the results differ.

Typo?! Where?

I'm glad you liked it. The results will vary pretty wildly depending on your mood.

Excellent!
-- That's exactly what I was aiming for -- to induce a meditative, almost hypnotic state so that the player could actually dream awake, then guide them on a journey through their own subconscious.

Yay! I'm glad you liked it.

Screenshots:

Gasp! A typo!

Besides this sort of minor typo---I think I saw something like "the an building" as well---I noticed that some passages contained extra spaces. I don't know if these were intentional, though. Some of the sentences could have been better written or punctuated (I know the capitalization was intentional), but they're not game-ruining. I just notice these things. Heh . . .

Solitude.

I would have written the last part as: "This does not mean that you don't like the company of other people. You're merely extremely selective in your choice of companions."

Glass or ice?

"Winter signifies a very Mature and reserved outlook. You prefer to keep one step back from the world at large, viewing those around you through a pane of glass---or is it ice?"

The missing period.

This last one speaks for itself. I have other quibbles with the text as it's presented, but these fall under the "I wish this were better written or punctuated" part of my post.

I hope these help! :)

With as much text as this game uses, it was pretty much a guarantee that we missed things. Not your fault! This game uses a dizzying array of text combinations.

Okay, so it wasn't "the an building." It's a similar typo, though.

The a clearing in the trees.

Again.

Punctuation trouble and a run-on.

More punctuation trouble.

Subject-verb agreement.

I'm sure this isn't everything, but hopefully these give you a good idea of the tiny problems I've seen. (Why do I do this? I'm nuts.)
