This game took me 9 hours to complete. The puzzles were just right for me. I was mistaken in thinking this was one of those game with logical puzzles, so I was glad to see a classic point ‘n click adventure game with inventory puzzles.
The only thing that bothered me were the dialogue options, where you never really could tell what your character would actually say, and I often had to go through all three options before finding the correct one.
I liked the revolving technique with examining objects, which I thought was a bit underused; they could have done more with this.
The music was okay, the voices however left something to be desired. I didn’t connect with the characters. Also, their weird gestures and walking paces made them obviously animations instead of believable real people.
As far as the story goes, I’m a bit let down. I just had a hard time accepting what was really going on and thought it all a bit too much to be plausible, even for a game.
Still it gets a good score because of the easy and intuitive playability. Even some of the harder puzzles never took me long enough to figure out so I would have turned to a walkthrough. They never broke the pace of the story.
