Review of Kathy Rain

Rating by SirVladimir posted on Feb 6, 2017

A must play for every adventures fan.

90's style adventure with awesome female protagonist.Meet Kathy Rain,young journalism student / biker chick on a personal quest to find out what happened to her grandfather whom she haven't seen in 15 years.A quest that will uncover secrets involving her family and bring out some of her own demons. Story is gripping from start to finish.Told with lovely retro style pixel graphics.Music is also done in retro style.Game is fully voiced over and sounds great.Every character sounds convincing. Game puzzles are logical and feel like a part of the story. Only minus I can think of is that the ending left some questions unanswered for me,but I am really hoping for a sequel that will answer them. I really see no reason you shouldn't try this game. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok

Warms and thrills my QfG-loving heart

This free game is in fact a fully realised point'n'click adventure which I think rivals even the best commercial entries in the genre. It is a wondrous passion project and beautiful homage to Sierra's classic Quest for Glory series. The production values are what you'd expect from a professional release in every conceivable way. Players are treated to glorious 2D art, fully voiced charcaters with commendable performances, beautifully orchestrated score and superb writing, world building and overall game design. And it's what I'd call a 'full-length' adventure. So many point'n'clicks nowadays (especially free ones) are quite short, but Heroine's Quest took me 25 hours which provides ample opportunity to feel deeply immersed in its world. And of course there's 2 more character classes should I decide to play through again sometime down the track. I'm a QfG fan from way back, particularly 1 & 4. Heroine's Quest crafts an original story drawing on Norse mythology and takes all its design cues from the very best of QfG1 & 4, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the result. I dare to say that it's just as good as both of these classic games of the genre. Time Played: Over 20 hours

Review of Memoranda

Quirky and beautiful, yet a bit unsatisfying...

Illogical solutions that can evoke frustration for some. Still, most of the time, I find that these add to the game's quirkiness. Overall, it is a unique, surreal, interesting and incredibly beautiful game that, unfortunately, feels quite unpolished storywise. Still, I find it worth playing due to its unique beauty and surrealistic atmosphere. Time Played: 10-20 hours

Review of Candle

Good but not great

It's a really nice game with lots of strong points. It has varied and challenging puzzles, an intelligent and well-developed story, gorgeous graphics of admirable non-banal aesthetics. The problem is that it still felt a bit disjointed and in general nothing new, just rendition of old patterns found repetitively in other adventure games, only this time with original and inspired audio-visuals. Also puzzles though varied and not as easy as they often are today, sometimes felt forced - e.g. you would know what to do easily and the difficulty laid only in finding right moment to do it/other things to do before that. Still I found it a worthwhile experience. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of Why Am I Dead at Sea

Rating by emric posted on Jan 15, 2017

Way more engaging than I was expecting

I guess I was only expecting this to be a lite little mystery adventure, so I was surprised with just how engaged I became with it. Sure there's only half a dozen locations, but some unique point'n'click gameplay mechanics (2 different levels of character possession, individualised character abilities) kept the proceedings feeling fresh and fun. The plot was more developed and characters way deeper than I was expecting. The dialogue style rolled out like retro Japanese RPGs/Adventures—similar to 'To the Moon'. And the music was way better than I was expecting. My low expectations must've stemmed from the visuals which, even for a retro lo-res pixel style, are on the drab side—but this didn't turn out to be a hindrance to overall enjoyment. Time Played: 5-10 hours
