Whether you play Midas because it just won Ludum Dare 22’s Jam competition, or because it comes from the same team that made the truly ingenious lo-fi puzzler Impasse doesn’t really matter. The important thing is that you play Midas: it’s clever and precise and quietly thought provoking, and it’s even a little sad.

The theme for the competition was "Alone", a word that's perfectly captured by this short, challenging, and even poignant, game. Even with (or perhaps because of) its minimalist aesthetic, Midas has an affecting sense of melancholy that's difficult to express in words.
