Reviews for The Night of the Rabbit
Great Game!Plasros | June 19, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
Great game! Seems like childish quest but has far more deep meaning, charming plot and ambience. Unfortunately it has one minigame that should never existed (I mean the last fight), but still the ending is totally stunning for a quest. In this respect, Deponia and Deponia 2 were not so good, though TNOTR misses some great humor from it. It appeals equally to innocence and experience. A few overly obscure puzzles slow the pace to a crawl, but Jerry's journey is worth taking even if only to feel like a kid again for a little while.

Night of the Rabbit is one of the loveliest and most captivating adventures I’ve ever played. I make no excuses about the fact that I haven’t been a fan of Daedalic’s previous work, there’s always been several flaws in them that have stopped me from enjoying myself – like puzzles not having a point, characters being annoying, voice acting being terrible, solutions being needlessly obscure, that sort of thing – but here everything comes together almost perfectly. There’s still the odd flaw, but it’s definitely an adventure I’m happy to recommend right here in the third paragraph. So now that Daedalic’s PR department have stopped holding their breath let me tell you why.
The story keeps things simple (Jerry’s off to learn magic, visits a magical world, then goes to find some spells) for the most part but always maintains plenty of mysteries that point to a deeper plot. Who are the strange lizards that pop up now and again? What beginnings and endings does the Woodsprite talk of? Why do you keep seeing a ghostly bearded man with a pug? Where is the Great Zaroff whose box of tricks you’ve borrowed? Will Plato the mailfrog ever ask out Anja the mouse? There are plenty more, and all get answered satisfactorily by the end of the game. If the story has one problem it’s that a lot of the late-game story twists are spoiled by the game’s promotional materials – the website alone lets you know that there’s more to the Maquis and Zaroff’s side of the plots.
Of course its a fantastic gamecaspica | May 31, 2013 | See all caspica's reviews »
I agree with the precedented talker Stebsis that Daedalic has dont it again. They really have. I still believe Amanita is the best game studio on making Adventure games but that is a very competed slot at the moment. The Night of the Dead Rabbit has one of the key elementals for a good Adventure game: the game looks fantastic. Once again Daedalic have produced high quality textures and making the art style take its place within the game. It can also boast with an extremely compelling story about rabbits and the overall feel is almost redundandt to speak of. Both Amanita and mainly Daedalic in this context continue to create fantastic and compelling adventures for us to explore.
Daedalic has done it again!Stebsis | May 31, 2013 | See all Stebsis's reviews »
Daedalic has become one of my favorite developers. They've made such masterfully done point and click games like Whispered World, Edna & Harvey, and superb Deponia series. To me they've brought back the p&c genre that has been in slumber for a long time.
From the get go of The Night of the Rabbit there is sense of great adventure. There's a brief tutorial that you can skip, and quest to pick blackberries to get you know the mechanics. This is a standard point and click, you pick stuff up, combine them and solve puzzles using the items. This isn't particualrly funny game like Deponia was, this is a bit more whimsical in nature, and towards the end quite dark too. This is a child-like adventure about magic and wonder, it's like playing a storybook.
The main character is a twelve years old boy named Jerry Hazelnut, who wants to be a magician. He lives with his mother in the woods near town and likes to practice magic tricks in his spare time and go on adventures in the woods. His voice actor in the beginning sounds a bit annoying, but as the story goes on it isn't bad at all and he's really likeable character, he feels like a young boy going on an adventure.
I simply loved Night of the Rabbit, one gripe I could say is that this feels too familiar, puzzles didn't feel that challenging and this is probably fairly easy for anyone familiar with this sort of game. Daedalic fans still can't go wrong with this one.
