Another hit from Daedalic.

In a new adventure; but this time innovating the gameplay. There are 2 playable characters. You can jump between these two characters at will. As husband and wife; both will require to work in parallel.

As in most adventure games; linearity is a huge factor with them. This one is no different. Although the game involved un-linear decisions; there are going to be linear objects required to be found to advance the story.

The gameplay is somewhat a pain. It is a point and click however so movement is a little non responsive. There is also quite a bit of backtracking but every adventure game has at least a little. The puzzles are interesting.

The soundtrack is very Jazz heavy and the voice acting is very immersive.

Rarely do we have a game with sexual references or graphic violence from Daedalic; the game is really subtle with them. Overall the game is great for a single playthrough. Multiple playthroughs isn't very fun.

This game is totally awesome! I am absolutely in love with it! Everything about it is fantastic. The graphical art style which is used in the game gives the game brilliant personality and the different characters each have differences in designs which helps to bring the colourful world to life. The sound design is also great and the voice acting is some of the best I have ever heard. The storyline is also stellar and the choices that you make throughout the game really do have a profound impact on the overall outcome of the intriguing storyline.
