This Point-and-Click game from Daedalic and it's incredibly fun! One thing this P-&-C game does better than any other game is getting you to care about the characters! You really care about Joe and Christine and want to help them be together again. One top of being a game about puzzles and clicking around the screen, it's a love story. We all have that one person in our lives that we'd move the earth to be with and this game, upon viewing the end credits, makes you want to hug them! The visual style is very unique and that is brilliant! It's not something seen very often and not only is it refreshing, but it looks gorgeous and is a welcome change from from the comic book style or the stupid over used pixel-art style! The only thing I hate about this game is that it can get a little bit repetitive when you click the wrong thing and you end up walking to a new location with no way to stop it and having to wait for the animation to end before click back to where you were before. Other than that, if you like P-&-C puzzle games, play this, you'll adore it!


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.
