About This Game

Lose yourself in a tale of magic and wonder, where anything is possible and where nothing is quite as it seems: join young Jerry and follow a peculiar white rabbit to the wondrous realm of Mousewood, a land where critters can speak and where mystery abounds.

It is here that Jerry’s dream of being a magician comes true, though a haunting, sinister force casts a long shadow over the forest. Someone offers the residents of Mousewood a deal of their lifetime - tickets to the greatest magic show that the world has ever seen. But the price is steep, as they'll have to stake their most precious possessions and also their lives.

As the shadows grow deeper, the residents of Mousewood have only Jerry to turn to. On an adventure full of laughter and tears, joy and fear, the young boy will face the ultimate trial, leaving behind the world he once knew, and his childhood, too, will become a thing of the past.

This was a very relaxing game. The puzzles weren't too hard to grasp, and the characters were very loveable and humorous. Lots of cute collecting, and I especially loved the collective stories that were all narriated. I defintely recommend this game if you're looking for something story driven, or if you need a break from the fast action packed games. So far, the games from this developer have no been disappointing.

I bought the Daedalic Adventure Bundle on sale for $5 and was starting to regret it - I didn't like Edna & Harvey or The Whispered World at all. But Night of the Rabbit is fantastic. Although it looks childlike, there are certain scary/disturbing elements throughout the game that would make me not recommend it for younger kids.

Pros:
- Artwork. I just love the art style and each scene is full of things to look at. The final cut scene is especially great.
- Voicework. Jerry's voice is great, as are most of the other voices. I do wish they had added more variation, as it's very obvious sometimes when one voice actor is voicing other characters.
- Length. I'm used to playing free P&C games, so this is the longest P&C I've ever played (ignore my gameplay stats...I fell asleep to this game a lot). And you don't have to worry about waiting for a sequel to find out what happens (although I totally am). The story here works as a standalone.
- Replayability. There are "side missions" to do that are not necessary to the main story. I didn't find all the dew drops or stickers, so I wouldn't mind playing again.

Cons:
- Puzzles. Sometimes nonsensical. Sometimes you can't do a certain action because it's not the right time yet. I did have to check a walkthrough 5 times.
- Mr. Churchmouse. It's kind of irritating clicking through his dialogue because he has these long pauses when he talks to his son.
- Humbert. Just really annoying. Too annoying.

Score: 9/10

Pros :

1. Artwork and Characters - One of the primary reasons I bought this game is because I fell in love with the artwork. Incredibly detailed, colorful and very appealing at first glance; I only wish I could draw this beautifully. I can only imagine the amount of dedication that must have gone into each of the landscapes, and they're scenic enough to make me want to settle in Mousewood for good.
A good amount of thought also went into character design it seems, for each of the Mousewood inhabitants (as well as tourists) are unique in both personality and looks. The voice actors have done a FANTASTIC job in portraying some of the key features of their characters, and will often have you giggling at their silliness. Such is the appeal of these characters that I could not help but take a liking to them, even some of the annoying ones.

The game, for me, held true to my belief that to truly sway a gamer's attention in your favor, you must at least be able to influence their feelings with your characters and your storyline.

2. No hints - This is more of a personal preference in playing a game without hints, as it makes solving riddles and quests more challenging (both of which are present in abundance in the game). If you're truly stuck, however, you can always resort to online guides.

3. Layered Storyline - The aspect of story progression I found most appealing was how often it required you to help the inhabitants of your surroundings; as is common with games like these, sometimes you cannot finish one quest without, say, an item, from a different quest. It tests your memory and ends up being more helpful than linear gameplay, unless you enjoy the latter more. I found myself getting increasingly sadder as the plot drew to a close, much to my surprise.

Cons :
None whatsoever. Even the card mini-game, which I found to be a little arduous at first, was interesting enough once I started paying attention to it's underlying mechanism - guesswork, mostly. It has the potential to be quite fun too, if you're a fan of simple card games (unlike me).

Absolutelly Magestic.
One of the best point'n'click I ever played. The story is simply brilliant, the enigms, just hard enough. Totally worth the price by far and beyound. For those who like this kind of game will be pleased with incredible decors, scenery, story and puzzles, a true delight!

Also, the music is simply wonderful, I still hear it when I'm not playing!

A masterpiece if you ask me!

If you like point and click games with a great variety of details, a young boy being a hero and more cute details you should play this game! I got it in a bundle together with other Daedalic games and it was really nice to play.
The puzzles weren't that difficult (and I am bad in things like these) but still tricky, my overall play time was 12 hours.

This game is fantastic. I have no idea why it doesn't get more attention, because it is simply a stunning piece of work. The artwork, the soundtrack, the voice acting and the puzzles are just wonderfully produced. The story and script are a little bit dry, however, but the premise itself is great and the game is thoroughly enjoyable. Daedalic have this strange habit of creating relatively poor quality stories around their otherwise brilliant games, but Night of the Rabbit certainly makes up for it in all other areas.

Definitely one of the best Daedilic games out there! The only one better are Chains of Satinav and Memoria but only barely. This is a amazing story that you'll just love. What makes this better then their usual stuff is that this game has a wonderful main character. Yes, there are some green vibes to it but it doesn't overwelm it either. The story is profound, the art is beautiful, and the music is perfect. There are moments in the game that send chills down your spine and possibly even tears. Plus, this is the only Daedilic game that includes things besides the story such as its own trading card game, short stories and collectables. The ending had a twist to it and I really hope it gets a sequel. It really deserves one. An absolutely fantastic game that you must play!

I love 'The Night of the Rabbit'. I tend to gravitate towards the dark, horror sort of games, but I adore anything anthropomorphic. This is also in a deeply discounted bundle of games, so I thought, why not? Even if all the other games are awful, this game made my puchase worth it.

The art is fantastic, reminiscent of a leatherbound fairytale book. While playing, I often found myself admiring the details of the enviroment and characters. The characters are loveable and intriguing. The voice acting is superb. I really feel like a lot of care was taken while choosing a voice for each character. I think the dialogue is a bit repetitive at times, but it is just a click ("One click - everything's just one click!") to hurry past the more monotonous parts. But the story... What an entertaining, interesting, heartbreaking, endearing, fun. thought-provoking story. (And the bonus stories!! So well-written!!) Set to a pleasing soundtrack, 'The Night of the Rabbit' is quite lovely.

With all that being said, there are a few scenes in the game where it seems like the character faces don't really match the situation, and it kind of lessened the immersive experience for me. A character receives serious information while smiling... Another says a tearful goodbye with a face of contentment. The voice acting swoops in to save the day, though, and it isn't anything that ruins the game. Also, some of the puzzles are quite difficult, with little to no direction of what to do next. This leads to either a LOT of guessing and misdirection, or the use of a walkthrough. But, this also leads to a strong sense of satisfaction when a puzzle is solved.

Overall, 'The Night of the Rabbit' is a stunning game, with a story I hope to see continued. I would absolutely love to meet these characters again. Thank you, Matthias Kempke!

I am... Genuinely impressed.

Normally point-and-click adventure games tend to either be bland, or only hold their draw for a short time and a single playthrough.

This one is incredibly deep.

What starts as an almost stereotypical childish adventure slowly gains layers of complexity, without losing any of the charm that a childish adventure can have.

The gameplay, however, possesses all the flaws of any Point-and-click game. Though this one does indeed try some interesting changes to the formula.
Virtually every point-and-click adventure game that requires you to combine collected items to solve puzzles becomes an infuriating quagmire; unless you happen to find the exact combination, in the exact order, that the Developers designed, you cannot progress--regardless of whether or not your idea could work.
Add to that the fact that you almost need to be able to read the Developers minds in order to solve many of them, and the game quickly becomes a matter of alternating between pulling teeth and finding a needle in a haystack.

Still, the plot alone can carry you through the whole game. There are a surprising amount of subtle and charming jokes, which are delivered quite well (If the main character cannot manage to find his success, he can always fall back on becoming a highly-skilled plumber with a charming Italian accent. And we all know how successful those can be).

You have to use a walkthrough to be able to really enjoy the game; which is the strongest mark against it.
But this game is deffintely worth it's cost.

The ending in particular is incredibly satisfying, and leaves just enough open ends to tease any number of sequels.
I greatly hope to see some, some day.

Daedalic Entertainment Game Nr. 8 for me

The story is really fine for people that love fairy tails. For people who like Deponias jokes it isnt really the right game. Enjoy the whole game and every part of it and it has a really important SECRET MESSAGE! STOP TRASHING THE WOODS/ PLANET OR THE WORLD WILL GET SLOWLY TO THE NIGHTMARE FOR ANIMALS/ PLANTS AND FOR US.

This game has really charm, the graphics are really great. I only miss more animals like deers, skunks, squirrels, badger and Co.

The main music is really good, you can hear it 5 times and its still good to hear it, the rest is satisfied enough.

The game lenght is for 19.99 a bit to much, it could be a bit more but its okay, the best is you use a 50% or higher discount.

So for story and point and click adventure fans its good, for people who want funny dialogs or dont like point and click adventures, it isnt. I give this game because the fantastic gameplay for me personal 93 % points. If there would be more gaming contend it would get even higher. I hope for a 2nd part in the future. Thank you for reading and hopefully enjoy your game :)

Oh my god, where do I start?
I hardly ever like point-and-click games. I bought this one because the story and the scenarios looked really interesting but I didn't think it would be this great! The characters, the soundtrack, the puzzles, everything together built the incredible universe that this game is.
The puzzles can be really tricky (or I'm just slow sometimes :P), but in any moment they made me tired and they're not repetitive at all.
I strongly recommend this game, even if it's not your style. The history is very original and it will for sure hold you until the end.

Also Jeremy and Kitsune reminds me a lot of Chihiro and Haku from Spirited Away.
... And I'm really addicted to the Quartet game.

I seldom play point n' clicks, but I must say that Daedalic are a force to be reckoned with in the genre. I'd recently played the entire Deponia series and had an absolute blast with it, so afterwards I simply had to seek out their other titles. The Night of the Rabbit was my first choice, and I do not regret it one bit.

This game was a wonderful experience. It has a very whimsical and sometimes touching story with a colorful cast of characters with great voice acting, a gorgeous art style that reminded me of Child of Light and Over the Garden Wall, and a fantastic musical score. For a point n' click it also never went into frustratingly difficult territory in regards to the puzzles and solutions. Also, the Quartets card minigame I found shockingly addictive.

If you're a fan of point n' clicks, it's a no-brainer that you will enjoy this title. Also if you've never played point n' clicks before, I'd say this game would be the perfect introduction.

One of those rare titles that get better and better as the game progresses, ending with a beautiful, spectacular, satisfying conclusion.

Only a few gripes - Jerry walks too slowly and though you can double-click to different screens, sometimes you just have to watch him slowly trudge along from one part of the screen to another. Also, the game takes a while to really get going, and this could put some people off (it almost did that to me). Some of the cool spells acquired later have great potential, but are usable in just very few situations - some just have one or two uses in all - which is a bit disappointing. Feels like they ran out of time to flesh some things out like those later spells.

Otherwise I strongly recommend The Night of The Rabbit, especially for fans of adventure/point-and-click games. Great story, lots of fun. 9/10

Daedalic Entertainment are the new Sierra/Lucasarts, fine purveyors of modern adventure games, the old point and click style as well. Night of the Rabbit is a fantastical adventure through the woods of a boys home, and was a great and enjoyable experience, the cliffhanger though may leave something to be desired

Long story short: While playign as 12 year old Jeremiah Hazelnut, you will feel like you are 12 once again.

For me, this brought back memories of cold winter nights in front of the computer, wowed by the imagined world.
