About This Game

Shy schoolgirl Lilli is having a tough time at the convent. Only her imagination helps her to escape from the strict rule of Mother Superior. But when her best friend Edna disappears under mysterious circumstances, Lilli has to rise above her own and face a tough journey to not only get her friend back but also confront her subconscious fears.

Lilli, a young girl at a convent school, is the main character of Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes. Apparently the best-behaved little girl in the world, she executes all her tasks diligently, no matter how unfair they may be. Her innocent, imperturbable way of carrying out the orders of others has something both tragic and eerie about it. Any resentment, any childlike disobedience is buried deep beneath a seemingly impenetrable shell of sweetness. But how long until this shell will fissure?

And where do the friendly little Censor-Gnomes come from that paint over anything upsetting in Lilli’s vicinity with a pleasant pink color? Are those potato-shaped fellows real or just a product of her subconscious?

All things considered, it seems merely a matter of time until Lilli is going to crack up.

This game is awesome, simply put. I loved the art and the story. The last mini-game is so fun. All the puzzles are easy to get through, but you may get stumped a few times. Don't look up the answers; just take your time and you'll figure it out. Really, one of my favorite point and click games.

First of all, the ending was really bad, It was an interesting and funny game, but it can get tiring. Sometimes I really love playing it, sometimes I get bored. The puzzles are pretty hard. I had fun times with this game that`s why I can`t click the no button. It might not be the kind of point-and-click game where you can`t stop playing, But I don`t regret spending my time on it.

To sum it up, I only recommend buying it ON SALE.

I'm delightfully taken aback by how much better harvey's new eyes is compared to the breakout. Compared to the pequel this game reeks of polish and really shows that the developers are stepping forward. Even with all the improvements the sequel still maintains everything that I liked about the first and even uses it in creative ways, manipulting what you thought about the ending in The Breakout to keep you on your toes. The biggest downside I can name is that the plot is quite dependant on events of the first game which had it's flaws.

I got the game in a bundle, and decided to give it a go. The puzzles are engaging, the mechanics work smoothly and I can see the appeal it could have for those who enjoy a touch of macabre, but I just couldn't find myself invested in the plot and characters. It's a good game, but not for me.

I played this before the first one and really liked it. It definitely kept me entertained all the way through. The destructive naivety of the main character is really charming. Yes, the achievements are broken, but I am one of those scrubs who play for entertainment and fun. And funnies I had. A lot. The music could do with a bit more diversity, the theme song has been stuck in my head for days. Halp...

This game is just my type of style, creepy yet cute, I'll tell you the truth I went in not knowing anything about this game or knowing it had a series, so what happened in the first game sort of was a tad bit spoiled for me, but overal it was a great experience! I'd definitly recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Before reading further into this review, I'm just going to point out that I'm not a big fan of point and click games for the most part so this review is going to be a bit biased against point and clicks. Without further delay, Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is a point and click game that focuses on telling a story (as most point and clicks do). The game itself is simple but sometimes it was annoying to get genuinely stuck without knowing what to do next. Through brute force, I was always able to find the next thing to do but sometimes it really took some time. In my honest opinion, the story was rather lame and I think this was meant for a much younger audience (5-10 year olds perhaps?). However, the voice acting was done very well and that is something that the game exceeded most other point and clicks on. Overall, I'm not a fan of point and clicks so I cannot recommend this game; but if you are a fan of point and clicks, this game should be on your watch list.

A very funny and kind of ghoulish game. It deals with a girl and she needs to solve problems that come her way. I find the game to be very refreshing and unique. Not to many games go in this direction and get the funny results that happen in this game. I did enjoy the story and the graphics are very colorful and have a very nice style to them. The music is also another plus for this game as its very unique and it sounds good. The game also has a narrator who gives you tips on what is going on. This is a breath of fresh air from a genre that I had thought had gotten very stale and dull. Bravo to this company for making a great game. I have not yet finished the game. The game is solid. Loads of fun so far.

So I have finished the game.. When your getting close to the end. Around the 4 hour mark or so. Save your game. The game has 3 different endings. The endings were ok. However I feel like the game lets itself down a little towards the end.

The game has chapters in it. Chapter 3 was kind of weak compared to the first chapter that had me laughing and shaking my head. Riot Girl for the win... Haha.. Its a line one of the 2 popular girls says in the school. I still think its a good game let down by the writing towards the end.

I am still glad I played it. I just with the other chapters in the story were are as strong as the first chapter.

Just a heads up the achievments for this game are broken. I didnt know it had them till I looked them up. SO busted achivements. I have finished the game.

Their is a way to get the achievments to work. Via this steam link. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=228082874

A proper follow up to Edna & Harvey: The Breakout! I enjoyed this game more than I enjoyed its predecessor. For one, this game was way more fair on the player! I didn't find myself looking up an online walkthrough every other puzzle. I absolutely still used one, but far less.

The black humor was way stronger in this game! Oh my. And I thought The Breakout was messed up. It was almost too dark.

One downside is Edna's role in the game is very small. She plays a minor character. I really got attached to Edna and way disappointed that this is really Lilli's game (and she doesn't speak which I didn't care for). Harvey however plays a major role in an interesting way. The good(?) thing about this game is that it could be easily picked up by someone who did not play through The Breakout.

I finished this game in about 10 hours. It ended up being longer than the Breakout for me, which was very surprising because I thought The Breakout was quite long. After I'd finish a chapter in this game I'd be like, wow there's more?

I had occasional problems with the restrictions menu not showing up, but other than that the game ran well.

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a point and click adventure game and likes dark humor.

Also, there are no jump scares that I can recall.

It was inevitable that I'd play (and 100%) this game. I loved Deponia and The Breakout (the prequel to this) was pretty good too. However, this disappointed me. A lot.

In this game is the distinct Daedalic charm; when you laugh at a joke in the tutorial, it bodes well. But the charm didn't carry as far as it did in Deponia or even The Breakout. Maybe it's because Lilli isn't as interesting as Rufus and Edna are, maybe it's because she never says a word, maybe it's because the tone takes a hairpin turn at Dark Street. I'll explain.

Deponia and The Breakout (to be exact it's Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, but I'll just shorten that) have amazing protagonists. Rufus is consistently funny and engaging and is genuinely relatable, while Edna is just loony enough to keep attention. Lilli, on the other hand, never says a word.
Yeah, she emotes a bit with her grunts and gestures, but silent protagonists are fundamentally character-less. Her thoughts are narrated throughout by an amazingly voice-acted male voice, but as she never communicates anything to other characters, they come up with flimsier and flimsier ways to say 'I know what you're gonna say'. It was clever at first, but it wore thin.
This brings me onto another big flaw over Breakout... The voice acting is overall pretty bad. Breakout had one of the best performances I've ever heard for Edna, but even she comes across poorly in this sequel. All the other voices sound silly, faked or are generally hard to listen to. That's pretty damning for a dialogue-heavy adventure game.

Then there's the tone. Jesus. I read that this game comes across as child-friendly. This is barely adult-friendly. Just some of the events that take place which get passed off as background gags are horrific at BEST. I barely laughed throughout the second half of the game because the tone had dropped so dark that it didn't feel right. Child suicide. That's all I'll say.

Another point I should stress is that the puzzles range between discount Sudoku and actually impossible. Seriously. There was a logic puzzle that could not be solved with the information they gave me. Even the walkthrough I had to follow to progress couldn't explain HOW the information it gave was right; just that it was. And then another puzzle kept doing things different to how it said it did...but that one's hard to explain, so I'll just leave at that.

My issue with the achievements in this game may not be relevant to some people, but I thoroughly enjoy 100%ing Steam games. That said, this one was a chore. The non-story achieves are dull as anything; here's a little comparison to Deponia (which came out before this)...
Deponia has you break physics by playing with electronics, meeting a past/future version of yourself and a special one for replaying the entire game with every word (spoken and written) replaced with Droggeljug.
Harvey's New Eyes has you do a slow, drawn-out task 10 times, a different one 15 times, a different one 20+ times and one even 99 times. It has perhaps one or two references that don't feel like a brutal slog, but the rest...
Again, that might not matter to some people, but it contributes to my conclusion:

This doesn't feel like a Daedalic game. This feels like a fan-made game based on a Daedalic game. The underlying sense of humour is definitely there, but the tone is too dark, the characters too flat and the story too...bad. I don't want to spoil it, but it makes the previous game's story feel like it was a waste of time and boils the 'antagonist' down to a generic evil plot. Complete with a maniacal laugh.
It could also be a cheap shot (and a heavily biased one given my great love of the Deponia art style), but the art in this game felt budget. Perhaps they were emulating the art from The Breakout (the first game done by the studio), but I didn't like it.
Along with that there were numerous graphical glitches like the inventory not opening, the protagonist appearing in two places at once and the camera panning to the wrong place or just jumping about.

There were a few more bugs, but the bottom line is this didn't feel like it was done by the same masters of adventure games that made the Deponia Trilogy. Play them instead as they're some of the best of the genre. This is probably one of the worst. And that pains me to say.

TL;DR: Point & click adventure of seemingly innocent looks but containing dark humour and a grim yet wacky storyline.

DISCLAIMER: This review is spoiler-free.

Who the heck are Edna and Harvey? That was our (me and my wife) first question since we didn't initially know Harvey's New Eyes is actually the sequel to Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, despite having a release date preceding the latter on Steam. Fortunately it can be played well without knowing about the first game. It's definitely a nice game but like the main character, it's got issues.

Who's who?

Instead of Edna (who is your friend) you play as Lilli, a little girl being schooled at a convent school. She's depicted as a shy, clumsy girl who "always does as she's told". She's effectively a silent protagonist since she never gets to finish a word before she's interrupted.

Usually in adventure games the protagonist thinks or comments on stuff that they see. Here this role has been reserved for the narrator. He makes snarky comments, describes what Lilli thinks and comments on every ridiculous thing Lilli tries. It's not possible to say more without spoiling it so suffice it to say his comments are masked by innocence but often tainted by the dark reality that Lilli seems oblivious to. We found the narrator hilarious, albeit repetitive at times.

The other characters are generally well developed, wacky caricatures of stereotypes. Some are batshit crazy - others are even likeable. The roster is large though often there's little need to interact with them more than a few times.

"Why are you playing a kids' game?"

It soon becomes apparent that Lilli has some mental issues. Mental illness was the theme in the first game and thus it's appropriate to use here as well. The story plot starts out as a blend of a mystery and mundane chores, both of which lead to hilarious yet grim consequences, before developing into a kind of an escape and rescue adventure.

Art style is simple yet colourful. Despite that don't go thinking this was a children's game just because of the bright graphics. They are in sharp contrast to the themes explored within. The themes are very adult and they involve mental disease, death, violence, alcohol, smoking and some other actions of dubious morale, more so than adventure games in general. This is not a bad thing per se, just not necessarily suitable for children.

Clickety click

While playing we were menaced by a frustrating bug: when going to menu or alt+tabbing out of the game, the mouse cursor would stop registering either left or right clicks and oftentimes it would not open the inventory. This would be fixed only by revisiting menu a few times and trying again. It was mostly an annoyance though.

Otherwise the interface works splendidly and it's a traditional point & click adventure game: left-click interacts, right-click looks at stuff. It's possible to see every interactable by pressing spacebar, which reveals that this is actually fairly casual adventure game: there are only a few interactables per every scene so it's fairly easy to progress even with the universal brute force strategy of trying everything with everything. Regrettably there's no dialogue for trying to interact with every object, so it may feel the game is unresponsive since one's expecting to get at least some response.

Exploring the game this way is prone to find all kinds of bugs if they exist. We encountered German dialogue once. Couple of times a cutscene would be skipped fast through like I had skipped it myself, and this repeated even if I reloaded the same scene. These were annoying but not game-breaking flaws.

Solid game with some issues

For us the game lasted 15 hours containing completion, all endings and achievements. Contrary to many reviews, the achievements worked fine for us. Some of them are grindy and because of that hard to discover on your own. When you have to do some trivial interaction over ten times it really doesn't work well as an achievement in a point & click adventure game, especially since there is no indication or dialogue reward that you were doing it correctly.

While the story is good, characters are quirky and interesting and we generally liked the game, I wouldn't recomend it at full price: I'd wait until at least 50% or 75% sale if you are not particularly into point & click adventure games.

So the 2nd part for me. I play this 1st part now after 2nd part Break Out . Its a bit long ago but i was directly back in the game, even if the parts are 2 differents in second you play Edna to Escape and now you see the beginning with Lilly. The story is curious and with many funny parts again. I love the style of Daedaldic Games and the strange art they bring in games. Enjoy this game if you like point and click adventurs or a high mid class story. You dont need to play Break out first but i find it would be better. So i give this game for the fun i had 92 % because i love Point and Click games, for others its mabe to high points, but watch trailer and decide yourself if you want play the game and how much you think its worth and than buy it when the price is fine (50% better 66-75% discount). Thank you for reading and hopefully enjoy the puzzles, characters and tale parts.

Point-and-click with a slightly dark and twisted humor. This game took me by surprise. I was very sceptical at first, my main game is counter-strike, but wanted something new.
I played point-and-click games as a child in the 90's and early 2000's. This game has that same feelling of mystery and the satisfying feeling of accomplishment. I recommend it

*Pros*
-hours of gameplay (I actually thought it was finished after the first chapter)
-3 chapters
-good puzzles
-You play a little girl that kills people
-No quest log/task list. (I find it more challenging)

*Cons*
-The "restrictions" menu dissappears very often, atleast for me. (cant find any buttons to bring it back, but if I went to main menu and back into the game and it solves the problem for a limited time.)
-No achievements (I'm no achivementhunter but still...)

I'll be honest, I bought this game because it was cheap & I liked the art style. I wasn't expecting much considering the price was very low but I must say I was plesently surprised!

Pros;
:: I love point & click adventure games & this fits the bill
:: It's got a cute, hand drawn art style
:: It's sarcastic, funny, slightly evil & very silly.
:: It's surprisingly lengthy too - {took me about 7 hours to fully complete it}
:: You have these "mini game" sections throughout the main game & it's handy that they do give you a "skip" button, so if it's too hard of a puzzle or you just can't be bothered doing it - you can skip it & it doesn't prevent you progressing further.
:: The game has 3 possible endings - so it's cool you get to choose how your story ends {helpful tip - save when you're in the loony bin cell with Edna, this is a decent place to reload to if you're wanting to check out the alternate endings}

Cons;
:: At times I did find myself clicking random stuff because it wasn't 100% obvious on what to do next {a lot of time was wasted & I did have to resort to a walkthrough for about 40% of it - for shame...}
:: During cutscenes, although the animation is somewhat smooth - the audio is bad. You can hear it juddering & skipping - plus this happens during gameplay too so it can get fairly tedious after a while.
:: The end credits seemed to go on forever & having the main theme tune on a constant repeat was dire, even though you could click your mouse to speed up the credits - for me, this just resulted in crashing the game. No disrespect to those who made it, they all deserve recognition in the credits but it would have been nice to have a skip option for those who didn't want to sit through them.
:: The achievements for the game are broke, you're able to unlock the "fast learner" achievement if you skip the tutorial {recommended for second play through} but after that you earn no more achievements - so if you're wanting to play this game just for the achievements, i'd give it a miss. After a bit of digging through community discussions, this issue has been broke for quite some time - so far there's still no resolve.

Other than that I can't pick much fault with the game.

It's worth the money, it's silly, it's something worth wasting your time on.
I only hope the developers finally get round to patching the achievements issue - otherwise they're going to have a lot of unhappy players on their hands asking for refunds, as something like that can really ruin the game for you.

One of my favorite point and click games of all time. Has some mystery/horror elements, humor, good characters, and some challenging puzzles. Took me a decent amount of time to get through too.

Definitely recommend if you want classic 90's point and click gameplay with some mature themes.

I bought this game during the Winter Holiday Sale 2015,
and would even recommend buying it at full price.

Its a game with a lot of wit, the commentator always seems
to be making fun of you, and the situation at hand. Even more so
if you dont know what to do ingame.
The Charakters are funny in their own way, each having a little quirk.
Because of the commentators remarks, it does not look like a deep
game, which in my opinion it is. Dark, twisted and deep.

This is the second game in the Series. I loved playing the first,
and like playing this one.
Even without having played the first game (The Breakout) one can have lots of fun.


Lets do the cons first:

- No achievements. This seems to be a Problem since 2013
In 2014 a guide/fix was written on how to get the achievements
to work, but it seemingly does not help with most people.
For people who like to get achievemts (which seem to be
fairly easy to get) this will be slightly irritating.

Other than that, i do not have any complaints.


The pros:

+ wonderfull point & click adventure
+ lots of puzzles with varying difficulties
+ No Logbook, so you have to keep track yourself
+ good and funny storytelling
+ lovely drawn graphics
+ little gnomes censoring with pink paint


I would recommend buying this game, if you like point and click Adventures.
It is a beautiful game.

I cannot stress enough how wonderful this game is.
I've never been a fan of point-and-click (with the exception of PuttPutt, Pajama Sam, etc), but the game really kept me on my toes to figure out the eccentric puzzles and constantly get to the next cutscene and stage.
One great thing was the ability to check what you can interact with. You know, in the case you can't see it right away and don't want to break your mouse trying. It definitely saved me a few times.
Not only was the story immersive, but it definitely was funny! I kept admiring the protagonist's innocence towards the events occuring until later. Dark humour at its finest.
The best part about all this is: it also just is great for replay in the sense of how you would be going through the story again and again because you just REALLY want to. Not for any other reason. Just to experience it.

If it looks like it's good to you, get it. Don't look back.

Usually in point-and-click games you can guess the plot already at the start, but this game is a bit different from that. I was quite surprised when I got to the end of the game. (Not revealing any information.)

What I don't like about this game is that the main character (Lilly) is so stupid. It has to be that way in order for the game to be the game it is, but it's soooo annoying. The game is very creative from my view, especially the restrainments she has to endure and overcome.

Harvey's New Eyes has more complicated puzzles compared to Deponia's first game (as an example). Definitely play this in one go or in a few days! ...or you will forget all the leads and hints (which I of course did not do!!! :< )

The game is basically constructed on humor (not the funny-type). The narrator constantly makes "hilarious" remarks when Lilly kills somebody, and yes she kills people often. If you like that kind of humor, go ahead and play Harvey's New Eyes!

I finished the game and got all the achievements in 13 hours, and yes I had to play it twice. I recommend saving quite often to get all the achievements or to follow a guide and save at the right points.

Have fun playing this!

I have not played the previous Edna and Harvey game, but I still really enjoyed this one! It doesn't run at a modern 16:9 resolution, and visually it looks kind of dated and crude, but the writing, characters, and the voice actors who portray them are top notch. Each character is unique and absolutely interesting. I ran through every dialogue option and never regretted it. The puzzles do get challenging, and I did have to use a walkthrough on multiple occasions, but the overall experience is one that I will never forget.

Dark Humor for everyone

I suggest playing Edna and Harvey: The Breakout first since this is the sequel to it, plus it make the story much more understandable.

This game is much darker than the first game and it doesn't shy away from sending chills up your spine. In this game you play as Lilli a nearly mute orphan trying to figure out what is the right way to act with so many people giving her orders.

Unlike the first game, the story is told through the narrator instead of the protagonist and they will always have something funny to say even in the darkest moments of the game.

So if you're a fan of point and click games, like a good story with humor and can stand some chilling scenes then I suggest getting this game!
