What attracted me to this game was the gorgeous artwork and the title, really. It was pretty and I instantly drifted towards the name of "Finding Teddy". I generally don't like these sorts of games but this is a proper exception.
I couldn't like Finding Teddy more. I don't want to spoil anything for you so here are some superficial reasons why I would recommend this lovely game.
After wishlisting Finding Teddy, I won this game free in a raffle and instantly started playing it. I was met with a cute point and click game with gorgeous graphics and a colour scheme that was refreshing and by far the prettiest I had ever seen, the scheme even rivalling Fez. The artwork is compelling and quite frankly, very sweet to look at. The gameplay is consistent and the puzzles are challenging yet easy to remember when you figure them out. Concerning the soundtrack, it's charming and gives an aura of mystery. The characters are silent yet graceful and are very lovable.
The story is just... adorable. Of course I like these types of story lines and many other people would probably go "meh" and move on, but at the end it was like I had just seen a baby panda try to crawl up stairs. My heart sort've did a fluttering thing and I caught myself with a goofy smile on my face.
Concerning negatives: at times it can be a little frustrating going through the game again and again whilst trying to get the achievements, if you miss one or two, but all in all it's a great experience. Also this game is mainly a one time play, one time experience game, but it's one that you may cherish.
