Though short and a little bit melodramatic at times, /follow is extremely enjoyable, and as far as I'm concerned, is a fine example of what can be done with very little.

Essentially, /follow is about a girl, privileged (or cursed, depending on how you look at it) with a personal bodyguard who will not let up. The problem is, she wants to be alone. the game is about escaping from the sight and grasp of this bodyguard, of whom we come to find out is actually something of a sociopath.

The story is brief, and the puzzles are point-and-click, but the effort is intact. Do not let the length of the game make you think it is lacking; /follow is well done and its creator deserves merits for his work. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the title is its use of music. Each track is dynamic and fitting. As is the case with the rest of the game, the music is trimmed to perfection, housing just the right elements to compliment the storyline; when being chased, there is aggressive chase music; when the protagonist is alone, the music is serene. If you enjoy the music, it's available for download. It was written by Mathieu Hallouin.

Play through /follow. It will only take you a few minutes. The ending alone is worth seeing.
