A good adventure

This game is a good adventure, maybe a bit slow at the beginning. The graphic is very good, but the version I played was very bugged (some items disappeared, the game crashes etc). I think this is the Final Cut of the game, with bugs fixed, so it's for sure worth it. The developers are the same of The Whispered World, the game has a very interesting plot and make you reflect on some thing.

Nice Adventure

A New Beginning un'acquisto is recommended for fans of the Adventure genre. The sci-fi theme-environment is treated in a serious and interesting, which is used as a backdrop to tell stories and characters that accompany the player in the completion of a number of puzzles, designed for variety and challenge. Great artistic side, too bad for some high and low, and some smudging techniques.

Decent adventure game

With great visuals, a good story and clever (and actually logical) puzzles, A New Beginning has everything you come to expect from a point 'n' click adventure game. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to any adventure fans.

Bleak but engrossing.

From the same developers as 'The Whispered World'. I'm not sure which one came out first - both have been available for a little while in boxed form and were released quite a while ago in some European countries still pretty big on old style adventure games.

You can't really tell from the pictures but this - and 'The Whispered World', which i should have mentioned in my review for it - are 4:3 ratio. Just to point it out in case it is either a turn off or there's people out there playing the games confused natural framing not filling widescreen monitors (though can use stretch mode).

The game graphics are excellent. Design is better than animation - which can be a fraction stilted. There's little in the way of annoying puzzles - a few but nothing too major. The plot may be a turn off if the global warming thing has either started to bore you as a topic or if you have a disagreement with it, but if neither of those are the case it's actually quite engrossing. Also, while a very different game, has that sort of moodiness to found in The Whispered World.
