Ratings and Reviews
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.
You need to experience this
This game is simultaneously the most heart-warming and the most gut-wrenching experience I have ever played, and it puts all other mobile games to shame. This is just true art. It outdoes so many games with millions of dollars behind it made by hundreds of people with such a simple yet incredibly effective premise. This is something every person should have, not only because it is a great experience, but also because it only adds to your knowledge of the human condition and expands your ability to empathize with people. It brought a concept often overshadowed by the rest of the war right to you, and assured you that you will never forget it. An absolutely fantastic work worthy of being kept in a museum for future generations to look back on.
