Not bad, too short, a bit shallow.


The point-and-click genre is not dead, no matter what the thousand-credit AAA shops want us to believe. But that doesn’t mean even the good ones are worth paying for when there is so much free material of decent quality out there. “The Search” falls into the category of games that should be free, but isn’t. We played at a leisurely rate and still completed it (including all variations on the ending) in 90 minutes. Compare that to “The Treasure,” by Kotorinosu (a free point-and-click game that some players actually complained was too long).

“The Search” showcases the impressive talent of its creator, Jason Godbey, who makes his living making highly detailed, nearly photo-realistic 3D environments. The soundtrack and voice acting are professionally done. Whole thing is enjoyable, if a bit heavy-handed with its messaging (lot of philosophical conclusions you won’t necessarily agree with, but they are not important to the play of the game). But my bottom line is that it doesn’t justify even the low price (four bucks) we paid for it, given the alternatives.

He has another game up for release in 2019 (“Discolored”). We’ll have a look, but I think he’d do better if Jason gave “The Search” away for free, and offered it as proof he’s worth some Kickstarter money to add staff and create a more substantive product.

I can give you the advise for free


A cheap game, but I think still to much for what it offers.

You can finish the game in 15-30 minutes. Depending on how fast you can read or if you want to listen everything through.

This could have been a great game and it has a lot of potential, but why it is kept this short I have no idea.
It ends with a life lesson and to teach us this lesson they created a tiny game to tell it to you.

I’m sorry but next time…..just send me a memo Wink
