Very pretty imagery and evocative music

The story is ok; at the same time it’s both too jumbled-up and too predictable. At times it’s full of deus-ex machina, at other times its totally cliche.

Too many unnecessary details in some places, too little details in places where they’re necessary. The result is uneven pacing and alack of cohesion. At no point do you have enough time to form emotional attachment to any character.

The end boss is terrible, jarring and unimaginative, not to mention terrible.

The world is really pretty, though, and sometimes you do get a sense that there is some deeper meaning there. Sometimes, it touches your heart, especially when coupled with the pretty music that stretches throughout the game.

Such moments are enough to carry the game, but the rest simply stops it from being anything else than “just ok”.

Time Played: 2-5 hours
Difficulty: Very Easy

A beautiful game... very nice story

The game was lovely and original and told a very nice story. I thought the puzzles were relatively well integrated if quite easy and… despite being totally linear, the game often made you feel like you had a choice. The world felt open.

I would have appreciated dialogue… I think it would have strengthened the connection with the characters and the relationship between the brothers. The brothers really only interacted on a couple of puzzles and… it would have been nice to see them… at play a bit.

But the ending is devastatingly sad and you get a lot despite the lack of dialogue.
