There is a subtle beauty to Florence. This poignant love story intertwines a succinct narrative with smart interaction design to create moments of surprising emotional weight. Conversations are turned into puzzles that evolve as the characters’ moods shift. Memories fade into focus like old Polaroid photos. The way you touch the screen becomes just as important as the plot, which makes for a story you want to steer as well as follow. Florence fosters a rare sense of intimacy with its characters, creating an impression that lingers long after the story ends.

Beautiful and touching

The graphics and the incredibly thought-out ways of capturing a relationship without using any dialogue are two of the best strengths of this game/exploration into a character's life and love. I adored every second of being in Florence's shoes and the game is undoubtedly one of the most charming interactive stories I've ever come upon. However, the one criticism I have for the game is that I wish it was longer. I played the entire game within 25-ish minutes and man, did I wish for more. But perhaps this isn't even a criticism, because it was so well-done that I was the one left wanting. I wish there were more games out there like this that made me "aww" and "oooh" every time I saw an original way that the team behind 'Florence' had come up with to depict the communication between two people as well as the outlook of one person towards her surrounding. The storytelling is done so masterfully that I would've watched the whole thing play out even without my own contribution to it. I am stunned and pleasantly surprised to have come upon this gem.

I enjoyed playing Florence a great deal. The game aspect is, at times, fun and one feels involved in the story. There are other times when it seems more like a necessary step to travel from one place in the story to the next, and some of the initial delight had worn off. Without perpetuating any spoilers, I was surprised by the first real turn in the story, and the romantic in me may have wished for a more classical happy ending — a different final disposition to the tale.

I say “may have” because the feminist in me was just a bit uncomfortable by an aspect present from early on. It may have been more subtle to some, and more obvious to others — but it plays itself out in what may seem, from a less classically romantic perspctive, to be a different kind of happy ending after all.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing. And although it may be unfair to say this, perhaps thus betraying a lack of appreciation for what it takes to produce something so well done, but I felt $2.99 was a dollar more than the length of the adventure seemed to warrant.
