Great game. The storyline was intriguing and well thought-out. It had engaging characters and witty dialogue. I like that you were able to play more than one character throughout the game. It was also interesting how their story-lines flowed well during the course of the story. (i could go into detail but that would spoil things) Art style of the backgrounds in the game were very detailed and the music keeps you immersed as well. I like how your decisions effect the story. I will probably play again in the future and alter my decisions and see how what that changes in the course of the story.

Excellent story for your classic point and click adventure. I get stuck at times, but just keep going if you can avoid a walkthrough!

Definitely worth getting if you like these kinda games!

The plot is mildy interesting, but the dialog is painful to wait through.
The controls are atrocious, it feels like they were build for a tablet. No keybord shortcuts, so you constantly have to click to bring up the menu, then click the action you want, then click where you want to interact. Accidently clicked the wrong thing? Too bad, the menu's gone now, and you've got to listen to a crappy canned response *again*. And being an adventure game, there's a lot of trial and error, trying to figure out the exact steps to get the thing you already know you want to happen to *actualy happen*, so you'll be doing the menu click shuffle A LOT.
The game is really slow to boot. I could feel myself physically aging waiting on characters to walk across rooms, even when i got them to run.
I couldn't stand it another second once the map opened up, as the aforementionned problems were at least tolerable when things were limited to 1 to 3 screen puzzles. Once I needed to do things across a dozen locations, moving back and forth, the pain of the interface and the slowness just sucked all of the enjoyment out.

Resonance is a nice old style adventure with interesting and original game mechanics - like short / long term memories that you can use as inventory objects - plus four playable characters that start each with their own goals and then team up to solve a scientific and crime mistery. Puzzles are fresh and rather challenging in some cases, while 8 bit style graphics are really cool! The story conclusion should have been less rushed out, and the sound department is a bit poor, nether the less I really liked this little gem. I recommend it to adventure fans who loved the '80s and '90 classics that want to breathe part of that atmosphere again!
