Firstly a note on the voice acting and how I got past it.... it's bad. I knew it would be based on the majority of the reviews here, but my god I wasn't prepared for how painful it actually was. It's as if they grabbed random people off of the street and made them read lines of dialogue with no context. It's so poorly done that it just doesn't make sense. I was so turned off by it that I was going to give up after an hour. I did find that I was able to continue by switching the language back to German. While not perfect, they at least tried to emote and it synced up with the mouth animations on the panel scenes given that it was the native language of the game. Just go into it as if it's a foreign subtitled game. I know that turns a lot you off, but it's still better than the English voice track.
A rather disappointing outing from Daedalic. I tried harder than I usually would to give it a fair chance to impress but it never actually came through.
Screens/Backgrounds are well done. The biggest compliment I can give here.
Story was lacking in my opinion. Written too loosely and eco-preachy to the point of borderline annoyance.
Characters were weak and two dimentional. Many of them so unlikable (looking at you Bent) that it was hard to care or empathise with them enough to desire any kind of resolution on my end other than soon forgetting them.
Puzzles are challenging, but fair. To be honest, I was so tired of it all by the third act that I power FAQ'd.
It's currently $2. Hard to say "Don't Buy" at a price that low, but I sure wouldn't recommend paying more. I'll remain a longtime Daedalic fan for what they've done to reintroduce and support P&C genre adventures in recent years, but this is an effort that can easily be swept under the rug.
