Today is the 37th birthday of Jan Müller-Michaelis aka Poki, game designer and co-founder of Daedalic Entertainment. I’m one of his fans, I love his humor and the unique, quirky protagonists with their dark side. Here’s a pic from Harvey’s New Eyes (2011/2012), the spin-off from The Breakout. Heroine Lilli is an innocent, obedient little girl who always tries to please and be helpful, but leaves a trail of dead bodies wherever she goes. I chose this screenshot because of the cool fantasy creatures that make sure poor Lilli doesn’t have to face the terrible results of her actions.  Cool

Which one is better (in your opinion), Edna & Harvey: The Breakout or Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes?

The Breakout without a doubt! Edna rules. Heart Eyes And Harvey plays a totally different part in Harvey’s New Eyes. But I had lots of fun with it.

EDIT: It’s not a sequel.

I’ve yet to play either of the Edna & Harvey games but took full advantage of the GoG sales & bought both!

I loved Breakout, it’s one of the rare recent games I’ve given 5 stars (originally 4½ but I caved in). I’m a bit scared to touch the sequel though because everyone says it isn’t as good. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it, and I’m usually not one of the people that requires everything to be perfect, but a continuation to 5 stars is always a bit scary thing to start.

Try not to think of the game as a sequel and you’ll be less disappointed. Edna does make an appearance in the beginning but she is only one of the many NPCs. Dr. Marcel is there too, and at some point you’ll come across a few other characters from The Breakout. But the game has a narrator, Lilli is the protagonist, and the Harvey we loved so much in the first game is unrecognizable.

..and what is strange (as always) that the game was awarded a score of 75/100 on Metacritic, which is better than its predecessor which only received 57/100. I guess those who has nothing to do with adventure gaming should stop giving those false reviews.

but it could be a sequel is some way as we see Lilli taking Edna’s path backwards, I mean she breaks-in-at the sanatorium rather than edna’s breakout, also visits lots of places that Edna dealt with through her break out.

Or better: people should stop looking at Metacritic as it’s a completely useless score system that’s been given WAY too much importance.

I really need to finish the Breakout. I think I was stuck on a puzzle when I quit last (and I’ve been playing GK1 afterwards. Which I also should finish now that new GK1 has a release date!)

     

I play story-heavy games, watch animation, anime, B-movies, disaster movies, sci-fi movies and crime shows and try to write about it all on my blog: Snark, pedantry and random geekery
