Young Sadwick lives in a beautiful but perilous fantasy world with his brother, grandpa and pet sidekick Spot. Together they roam these mystical lands with their circus.
Sadwick, known as Sad to friends and family, is a twelve year old boy with a melancholic vein. He would like nothing more than to set out and explore the world, but his family is holding him back. One night a strange blue creature appears to him in his dreams, abruptly changing his life.
It tells of the end of the world approaching and of Sadwick playing a decisive role. To get to the bottom of this mysterious prophecy, Sadwick and Spot set out on a dangerous adventure that leads them to the furthest ends of the Whispered World.

The Whispered World is one of my favourites adventures from this developer, It offers a classic gameplay like the old point & click games with awesome 2D art, the characters seem taken from an animation film and the OST is very good, all songs are memorable.
The game isn't too long because some puzzles are very easy but It has enough hours of gameplay to be a indispensable adventure for any fan.

The Whispered World is the best point and click adventure Daedalic done. The story is deep and interesting, the graphic is good and colorful, and in the ending there is a unexpected surprise. Puzzles are all logic-base, so you don't need a solution to complete it. One of the best deal at the moment on Greenman Gaming.
Not as good as expected.TheRealMoremir | July 12, 2012 | See all TheRealMoremir's reviews »
When I first heard of this game I was really excited: I'm a big fan of traditional point-and-click adventures. The cartoony graphics reminded me of great games like Monkey Island 3, or King's Quest VII and the characters seemed intresting enough. That beeing said, the game itself was kind of disappointing. First of all, it's really slow. The dialogues lack the snappy whimsical nature of most oldschool graphic adventures and the time it takes to perform some of the most basic actions is sometimes underwhelming. Second, the main character, Sadwick, wasn't nearly as intresting as a sad clown could have been. One intresting aspect of the game, though, is the introduction of Spot, the caterpillar. Like in Sam & Max: Hit the road, some puzzles will have to be solved using our pet, wich can change it's form to help us. The artistic aspect of the game, if we can call it so, is really polished. Good visuals, good sountrack and good -though somewhat clasic and sometimes cheesy- story. Overall a good game and worth checking out if you are a traditional PC game fan.
Beautiful game.scottnat | April 24, 2012 | See all scottnat's reviews »
One of my favourite traditional styled PC adventure games of last couple of years. Lovely graphics. Terrific soundtrack. There's only a couple of puzzles in the game which were a bit obscure, but for the most part that side of things is logical and rewarding.
In terms of narrative it's pretty touching. Gets the reflective childhood thing down pat. Is a nice mix of nostalgia and imaginative vibrancy. And while not super long - say up against something like The Longest Journey - it's length is more than satisfying.
