A rare gem of a game, rarely have I played a game that left such a lasting impression on me. You can feel the passion and dedication of the developers.
* Compelling story with interesting twists
* Great gameplay
* Well-tuned difficulty, never felt too easy nor too hard
* Beautiful graphics
I haven't even mentioned the best part yet: I find the soundtrack of this game breathtaking. It perfectly manages to capture the mood of the game. At the same time the music is warm, refreshingly cool, relaxing if not soothing, passionate and melancholic.
The rest of the audio is great as well. In particular, Jenna Sharpe does a great job voicing Naija. I don't remember whether it's part of the game or the independently released Aquaria sountrack, but Jenna's singing in the song "Fear the Dark" is worth mentioning.
One aspect of the game I didn't like is the cooking system, it didn't seem to quite fit with the rest, but it's just a minor issue.
In unison; story, gameplay, visuals, sound and music combined; this is one of the best games I've ever played.
