Is it worth it?
The obligatory thread... Is it worth buying? How many hours does the game last? Is the story good enough? How's the playability?

Was worth getting at release, so at 75% off theres no excuse to not get it. The game looks and sounds great, and has real character. And i loved the ending. If you like point and clicks, or games with humour, you have to try it

It's a nice Point&Click-Adventure with humour and lovable characters. And like Fobbsy mentioned - with a heartwarming end.
I'm quite sure, you will not be disappointed.
And to answer your second question: I played it through within six hours.
Oh - and I bought it as a daily deal with 'just' 50% off, and it was definitely worth it.

The game length depends on your ability to play these sorts of Point n Click Adventure games.

The game is by no means difficult. It's not the Monkey Island sort of challenge where by you'll need one item to finish a puzzle which will lead to 2-3 more puzzles requiring a lengthy and amusingly challenging process to complete.

Most of the items you'll pick up will be used within one or two screens, and the only really frustrating puzzle is the last one.

Other than that, a totally enjoyable game which lasts around 5 hours. Which is about half the length of the Runaway games Pendulo also made.

Personally I'd say iffy at full price, worth it at 75% off.

I got it at 75% off. I rarely play these type of games but after an awkward start I have about 4 hours into it and I like it. It's a nice change of pace from fps.
I will look into Runaway and others from this dev when they are on sale.

Bought it on sale. Definitely a nice game. Only about 2 hours into it. If you're hesitant I'd say try the demo. That's what sold me on it.

I bought the pendulo pack, and played all games to completion.

This game is wacky -- random, incoherent, unintuitive.

I was relieved when it was over, didn't end up caring about any of the characters or story.

The pleasant surprise was how fantastic another game in the pendulo pack was -- "Yesterday".

The quality of writing and adventure in "Yesterday" is fantastic, buy and play that instead.

I would have had buyer's remorse if I paid full price for this title. It's really pretty but some of the puzzles were a bit disjointed and incoherent. The story itself was also a bit on the skin deep side. And the only character you ever get to know a little bit deep is Liz. It had potential but suffers from being too short and weak plot and development.
this is a great game.

Don't buy it if you are hearing impaired, there is a musical puzzle near the end and the devs did not include a skip puzzle function.

I got this one on a bundle, you finish it in 6h (if your game do not crash like mine). It's fun =)

It is totaly worth on a 75% sale.
You can skip all Puzzels, not true with the Musical ones that it isnt skipable.

BTW. support your local game developers :D

I just finishd the game and I thought it was great! I only needed to look at a walkthrough once to find out i needed to click on something I had allready clicked on 100 times. I completed every puzzel my self and never skipped anything. Alot of work went into the game and I realy enjoyed it.
