Sentimental time machine

As a child I loved every single point and click adventure. Unfortunately, I noticed that nowadays I cannot enjoy them, because of the slow-pace, and ugly graphics most of the time. However, upon stumbling on Whispered World I've noticed, that it looks totally like the oldschool games, with pretty 2D graphics, enjoyable stories and characters that you can like!

I absolutely adore the hand-painted background, and the way the characters are introduced. The storyline kept me glued to the computer screen and is far better than some RPGs I've played lately.

Cant say bad thing about audio, as the music is beautiful! Also the game is pretty cheap, and was featured in bundles, so you have a chance of getting it for a few pounds, and you definitely should get it!

Fantasy point and click done well

I don't know what to think of the developers. The game itself good, your everyday traditional point and click adventure game from Daedalic Entertainment, Awesome fantasy artstyle, great characters and story, colorful almost surreal backgrounds and atmosphere makes up The Whispered World. Some problems like random puzzles that cannot be considered puzzles, logical problems in puzzles, too much time spent on dialogues, and all those quirky problems that most of the traditional point and click adventure games face are still there, but everything else more than makes up for it. Great game if you are buying it for the first time.

Now the problem is, this game was broken on PC. Almost everyone who bought it originally could not finish the game because of a glaring bug, which had to be bypassed by a savegame which developers were handing out to everyone. Now instead of patching the game and releasing it for free, they decided to add features like steam card drops, achievements etc and are now CHARGING for it. Even to those who already owned the earlier version. So for consumers who already bought the game, I ask you to not give then any more money and stay away from this edition. For those who didn't buy it the first time, go ahead and give this game a try.

Interesting design and story

Deep story organised with hand drawn and a bit pastel graphics. You are a boy who needs to... Oh no, no, no spoilers are allowed :) Read more from an article from Adventure Zone: "Daedalic Entertainment Company decided to reheat steak ... i.e. refresh us one of his earlier works. 6th May sales hit a special edition of The Whispered World. The game comes with a bonus in the form of comments artists, rebuilt tutorial and new achievements to unlock." So nothing special for those who played already, but if you didn't then it should be quite interesting. Notice that bugs unpatched by regular edition, now should been fixed. Grab it from GMG ;)
