+ Fantastic artwork and character design
+ Decent voice work throughout
+ Great plot with a satisfying ending
~ Very few bugs (2x unvoiced speeches, 1 bugged quest)
~ Long (but skipable) speeches
~ Some quests rather vague and no hint system
~ Not much puzzle diversity (fetch & combine)
~ Bonus audio books are long but add nothing to the game
~ Minimal storybook like visuals and animation
- 1 quest bug, unsolvable until reload
- Saving often doesn't record last few actions but does cure the above
Oddly the game feels like it's for younger (teens) players with long storyline conversations without interaction and yet many quests are tough to work out with no hints from characters or the help button and the pixel hunt extras are really tough!
Adter Whispered World was afraid that the ending would be a let down but instead it was extremely well thought out and answered many questions (note.. the ending took about 15minutes so make sure you have time to enjoy it)
Conclusion: 8/10. Charming, rewarding and worth the journey.
