I highly recommend this game, especially if you're already into point and click adventure games. The story is awesome and the puzzles are clever. It has a nice world to explore, lovable characters, great music and graphics. It's the sort of game you can become really immersed in. I played it over a few days; it was kinda like a book you can't put down.
It was hard to get into at first because the dialogue was so slow and drawn out and it seemed so innocent I thought it must be made for kids, but it's definitely not - the story is actually pretty dark, and it even has a bit of a twist ending. I didn't decide to buy it until I finished the demo. Unfortunately I had to play it from the beginning again once I bought the game. My only criticisms are the slow and wordy dialogue (which you can click through quickly or escape out of anyway), and a bit of bugginess with the cursor (there were some small objects that I didn't realise I could interact with because the point to click on was actually lower and to the right of the object).
I think the puzzles could all be figured out with enough wandering around clicking on things, but it depends how long you can stand to be stuck on one puzzle. I had a walkthrough open that I used to give myself a hint if I was stuck. I just carefully scrolled down to see only the next step after the steps I had already completed. It would be great to be given clues, as I hate to ruin the experience by using a walkthrough. The journal does sometimes give you clues though.
Some of the puzzles are really simple, some take more thought, and a few I don't think I would ever have thought of. However, most of the time I looked at the walkthrough I realised it was totally obvious, or I could have figured it out if I had thought about it more / tried more things / explored more.
As someone already mentioned, there is a lot of pointless dialogue to sit / click through, like "hmmmm", laughing, grumbling, etc. but this is a minor issue. It can be irritating but doesn't really affect the enjoyment of the game. I found a lot of the dialogue and the characters amusing, so I didn't mind too much.
Overall... really great game. 10/10.
