Editors' Notes

An Apple Design Award winner, this moving puzzler proves sometimes the best stories don’t need words. Developer Broken Rules has created a hand-drawn world that bubbles with whimsy and heart. Altering the landscape to reveal hidden paths makes for fascinating, peaceful gameplay. We love exploring the storybook settings and uncovering each touching memory. It’s unforgettable, and we’d move mountains just to relive the experience.

Beautiful but..

I love these kinds of games. The art was beautiful, the music had a nice atmosphere but not particularly any stand out tracks. The letdown was the repetitive gameplay and the ho hum storyline. I didn’t feel sorry for him I felt more sorry for his family. I kinda found that I wanted the journey to be over sooner, there were a lot of hills. Still the art does make it stand out amongst its competition, but you might want to have a more engaging storyline next time.

Tugs at your heart strings.

Beautiful story about love, loss and redemption. This story unfolds in a series of vignettes scattered throughout the game. There is no pressure, no time limits - just beautiful, whimsical landscapes to travel through until you reach journey’s end. The animation is smooth and the soundtrack matches the whimsy perfectly. Don’t rush, take your time and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Lovely, gentle game.
