I played the demo. I found the story to be interesting enough & well thought out. I like the art style. The cinematic transitions between areas are a nice touch. Now, here are my critiques:

- The voice acting is not very good. It sounds like there are two people voicing all the parts. And, it comes off as dry reads of dialogue. I really don't feel like the voices are coming from the characters between a lack of actual expression, and how their mouths look and move (which seems to have nothing to do with what is being said).

- The puzzle locks I encountered are without challenge and can be completed with mindless click-mashing and mouse wiggling (provided you have the per-requisite components). I tested these a bit, and found haphazard clicking to solve them quicker then actually thinking them through.

- Given that the custom cursor behaves as a mechanic to the game. I feel there's no benefit to letting the player use their default cursor (doing so is actually disabling).

Okay, so the trailer says the girl has to save her little, brother. Then it comes out of the blue saying that picking locks will save the entire kingdom. This looks terrible, even without the awful story.
