Description: Deep below the ice in Polar City, everyone is asleep. Up on the surface of Kenopsia, the Custodians are busy making a world. For the next four million years they will be creating a paradise for the sleepers; living machines made to sculpt a perfect garden. Custodian 98 wakes and starts its job, working alongside its friend Drone to create clouds, tend the ecosystem, measure the rain. Over the course of hundreds of thousands of years, 98 and the rest of the Custodians gently prepare Kenopsia for the wakening. Until the day a new star is spotted in the sky and everything changes.

Travel through the world of Kenopsia, exploring incredible places from swamps to mountains, oceans and cities. Learn to work and play with Drone to discover the world and uncover a powerful story of friendship, a tale passed down the generations, from adult to child. It’s a story about love and duty, and about the wonder of caring for things and helping them grow. It’s a story about a world being created and about a machine who is left all alone and goes looking for his friends.

Review: Trying to put what “So Let Us Melt ” is into words is like describing what a piece of art means to yourself. Everyone will say something different based on what they saw, heard and experienced and some people will enjoy it and others will hate it will a passion. To me “So Let Us Melt” was a beautiful piece of animation that tries to play on your emotions by pretending you are not only watching it but part of it. One thing this isn’t is a game, this is a slightly interactive guided tour that shows you the work that a cave full of plant terraforming robots has done while getting you to emotionally attach yourself to a few of the characters. No spoilers here, but you might want to try and hold off on that emotional attachment as things don’t go well for them.

So is this game worth a download? I think the price might be a little too high for someone to take the risk that they will enjoy it or not, but if like me you enjoy 360 animations, space and are happy to just sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds you will totally feel you have got your money’s worth. But anyone looking for a game of any kind shouldn’t bother.
