Ratings and Reviews
Probably the best narrative
Possibly the best narrative I’ve experienced on the entire App Store! It presents both a heartwarming and heartbreaking tale of a little German boy or girl, depending on your choice, being adopted shortly after WW2 in Norway. Norway was greatly impacted by the war because of how the German occupation treated them and then turned some Norwegian women into what most Norwegians viewed them as traitors and “sluts.” The story shares what happened to a decent amount of women back then during the German march through European countries. So your child is considered as a traitor against Norway so he/she’s pretty much treated as an outcast and also abused by the children and even adults, both physically and emotionally. At some parts I even caught myself tearing up. It’s a loving and jaw dropping story that definitely deserved to be shared to address victims of war. And the game may feel a little short, but with the amount of choices offered, its replayability is pretty high plus most of the money players paid for the game will actually go towards a good cause to help victims of war in these tough times. It shares a message that family matters and no matter what bloodline you come from, you’re still special. It was also a great history lesson that shares some things that some of us did not know of about the war and its aftermath. The art style used is also amazing! Thank you, devs, for this amazing game! I hope there will be a sequel or an expansion to this!
More Than I Ever Expected
I don’t usually write reviews but I feel the need to sing my praises for this game. It was really incredible and I couldn’t hardly put it down on my first play through. The game is very educational and contains a lot of real-life statistics and information, but I feel as though all of this info was delivered in a very organic way. It still feels like a game, not a history lesson. I grew very attached to the child I adopted, Karin, and although I know she’s a fictional character my heart still aches when I think of what she went through. The artwork is simple and charming but at the same time I was impressed that so much emotion is conveyed through the facial expressions and animations of your child. You’re forced to make some very difficult decisions as their parent and I wasn’t prepared for how serious things became in the story. I look forward to playing again and can’t wait to see if the developers make anything else as well.
What an amazing game and experience. The story and role you play is emotionally gripping, and I found myself truly caring for little Klaus. As a parent, I connected with the tough dialog choices, as oftentimes in real life it is difficult to decide how honest to be with a child without giving them more information than they can handle. The game designers did a fantastic job providing a realistic and meaningful yet streamlined interaction with Klaus that captures the essence of raising a child, and forces you to make tough choices, like balancing work and providing care with spending quality time. I was captivated by this story, and with taking care of Kraus, and it was fascinating (and saddening) to learn about this slice of post-war history. Thank you to the development team for this powerful, educational, and unique experience. I won’t soon forget it.
