Could you say why you don't like it?

The demo ends with the shadow of Papo (the monster) in the background, like he's coming finally... and when you get to where the shadow was leading, there's just nothing.  You are left thinking "what do I do now?" and the answer is as simple as turning around and leaving, but the way it all builds up is meant to give you a feeling of loss.

To clarify, the demo ends when you see his shadow, and goads you into buying the game.  After paying money, you are given nothing.  This amplifies that negative feeling.

I think I have daddy issues, for the first time in almost 30 years.

You kind of make me want to play the game now just to see how bad it is...

That is exactly what is making me more and more angry.  This game is being promoted on the front page of PSN... and the fact that I'm having a bad time is apparently the theme of this game.

Everything I do is exactly what I'm supposed to do.  Fuck.
