The Lion’s Song review - page 4

The Good:
  • Lovely sepia-toned pixel art
  • Soundtrack befits the game’s musical title
  • Subtle but clever connections between multiple protagonists and storylines
  • Rare glimpse into a fascinating time and place
The Bad:
  • Very little actual gameplay
  • Voice acting would have better personalized the individual character studies
  • Consequences of choices can seem a little unintuitive

Our Verdict:

Well-versed in early 1900s Viennese culture, The Lion’s Song practically plays itself, so the main draw of this four-part interactive anthology is its beautiful sense of time and place.

Very emotional


Wow The game doesn't have much gameplay in solving riddles or combining items, but it's like reading a book with a beautiful story, where you make some of the decisions. One of the games that stir emotions and made me tear up in the end....
