More poem than game, Walk or Die was a study in the most minimalistic interaction I could think of, and I like to think it was a walking simulator that was slightly ahead of the curve. :) Made in 2010 for the TIGSource "A Game By Its Cover" competition; you can see the cart that inspired it here.
In 2014 Walk or Die was exhibited in a Madrid art exhibition curated by Andrés Oliva and Daniel Alonso.
Some kinds words:
-Michaël Samyn, co-creator of Sunset and The Path
"I played it for at least ten minutes, while walking on my treadmill :D… I really like it ."
-axcho, Notgames Forums
"It made me think about a lot of things for the 20 minutes I held the spacebar down. Mostly about mortality and solitude."
-Albert L., NG Comments
"Thirty… minutes… addicted. Something about this was just so… tranquil."
On the flip side:
"This game is exactly what I expected it to be. Which is kind of disappointing, really."
