According to ESRB, this game contains: No content descriptors.
Parents don't have anything to be concerned about. The game stars a blob of liquid metal in the garishly colored levels, so there is no content that could be offensive to anyone. With absolutely no violence, questionable language, sexual content, or even any humanoid figures, this is a totally safe play experience for anyone.
Fans of the first Archer MacLean's Mercury will find the same basic game, but corrupted with a style and sensibility that does not seem to be a good match with the subject material.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no problems. There is no spoken dialogue, and all information (such as the tutorial) is presented through visual text. It might not be the greatest puzzle game, but at least there are no communication barriers.
Currently, he's got about 42 minutes a night to play because adulting is a timesuck, but despite that, he's a happily married guy with two kids who both have better K/D ratios than he does.
Brad still loves Transformers, he's on Marvel Puzzle Quest when nobody at the office is looking, and his favorite game of all time is the first Mass Effect -- and he thought the trilogy's ending was Just Fine, Thanks.
