Arvostelut

“Edna is beyond the rating scale. How are you supposed to review a game that’s actually a piece of art?”
93% – Gamona

“Let's have a round of applause for the probably most insane adventure of all time! […] Edna is the prime example for how elements of a game perfectly come together when a creative developer can push through his ideas without any compromises.”
88% – 4Players

“Point & Click in perfection. But Edna isn’t outdated in any way, thanks on the one hand to the beautiful 2D comic style and on the other hand the out-there humor.”

Tietoja pelistä

Palkintoja voittanut seikkailupeli Deponia ja The Whispered World -pelien luojilta on nyt saatavana Steam-toistona. Lähde nuoren Ednan ja hänen puhuvan täytetyn kaninsa Harveyn mukaan pakoretkelle pehmustetusta sellistä. Koe mieletön matka hullujen huoneella ja kauas sen muurien ulkopuolelle.

Alussa nuori Edna herää pehmustetussa sellissään hullujen huoneella ilman muistoja menneisyydestään. Hänellä ei ole aavistustakaan kuinka hän joutui sinne, mutta siitä hän on varma, että hän sieltä pois! Hän tuntee olevansa ihan terve – ja hänen puhuva täytetty kaninsa Harvey on ihan samaa mieltä. Yhdessä he lähtevät pakomatkalle, jonka aikana he tapaavat mitä merkillisimpiä potilaita – kuten miehen ampiaispuvussa ja pseudo-siamilaiset kaksoset Hotin ja Motin. Mutta Tohtori Marcel, hullujen huoneen johtaja, on päättänyt estää Ednan pakomatkan. Mitä hänellä mahtaa olla suunnitelmissaan? Ja miksi Ednan muisti pyyhkäistiin olemattomiin? Vähän kerrallaan Ednan muisti palautuu ajasta ennen kuin hän joutui selliinsä...

Really enjoyed this game, thought it was a small game but its actually pretty long (I played 11 hours and I didnt finish it yet).
Edna and Harvey are really funny :)
Only thing is that I have to save the game constantly cause it turns off by itself sometimes, but still worth to buy!

Starting Bias: I play lots of point & click adventures, and Daedalic is one of my favorite developers. So I went into this game strongly predisposed to like it.

...but this game was actually kind of disappointing from the very beginning. I was expecting a followup to one of my favorite adventure games of all time (Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes). But this is actually a much older game with an older engine, and it doesn't even feature Lilli, the main character from that game.

It also doesn't feature the endlessly apologetic narrator, whose epic dry humor was more or less the entire point of Harvey's New Eyes. It does still have classic Daedalic puzzle solving gameplay, once you get past the uber archaic interface (I have to click "look" and "pick up" and all that? Wow did we ever get past those buttons years and years ago.) Dialog and voice acting are good, too, although it doesn't quite have the bite that the newer Daedalic games have.

The art is reasonable for an older game, but, much like everything else about it, it doesn't have that level of majestic polish that stuff like Night of the Rabbit or the Deponia series have.

Basically, it feels exactly like what it is: an older game from the company before their age of greatness truly began. It's not bad per se, just ... ah, wow. I wanted a sequel. I really did.

There's also the problem where this game has bugs. Massive amounts of bugs. Crash to desktop bugs. "Go download an updated script file to properly solve this problem" bugs. "You can't win the game if you make this mistake" bugs. Unacceptable and amaturish; I've come to expect more from Daedalic and not getting it is quite disappointing.

Still, I enjoyed the game when it wasn't crashing, and played it through to the end without complaints. I probably wouldn't buy it again with full knowledge of what I was getting, but neither am I sorry I played it. It's on the razor's edge between recommended and not, but I think it's just barely on the good side of that edge.

Overall rating, 3/5 (competent one-time experience but nothing exceptional).

A creepily characterful and impressively detailed comedy asylum escape cartoon point-and-click adventure game from then independent German studio Daedalic, for which many of the reviews in the English-speaking press have been bafflingly low.

For neophytes to the point-and-click genre, perhaps it will test their patience too far. But for serious adventure fans, an unmissable slice of gaming history, as it started a raft of defiantly different titles from the same studio that maintained its independence from 2007 until May 2014.

Even taking into account that the only official English version has two serious (but fixable*) bugs, several puzzles that ask a little too much of the player's imagination, and that it occasionally lacks clarity in animation, this game deserves more attention.

Those negative aspects certainly prevent this game from approaching the upper echelons of adventure gaming or being recommended to players new to the genre, but its depth, its engaging and original story, and its many challenges will give regular adventure gamers, or simply lovers of a good tale, many moments of satisfaction.

Perhaps it's the unashamedly old-shool approach to puzzle-based gameplay that resulted in those scores, as seems to be the increasing trend in game reviewing. But it's exactly those aspects, the tricky but satisfying puzzles, the taunting clues, the asides and terrible puns that often had me staring blankly as often as chortling away, that give this game character, making it game enjoyable and underlining the player's feeling that a lot of effort has gone into it.

This game is fully-voiced, and in this case, that really means something. The sheer number of voice lines included to cover virtually every item interaction is something I've only seen elsewhere in another 2008 game released slightly later, A Vampyre Story, made by ex-Lucasarts members, and featuring a similarly creepy tale and sarcastic female protagonist. Breakout's voice lines gave a real sense of character to Edna, our less than sane avatar, and her soft toy sidekick, Harvey, which is what adventure games are uniquely able to excel at - making you believe the people and situations.

Staying with the Vampyre Story comparison, since both games were heavily influenced by 1990's LucasArts titles: Vampyre is what a team composed of programmers, writers and artists with decades of experience and greater financial backing might produce: polished and slick. On the other hand, for a first attempt at a game made largely by a single student in his spare time, Breakout is impressively close in terms of ambition and detail, if not execution.

It's all those factors contributing to the game's believability that allows the story to make a pleasing transition in mood towards its latter half, where dialogue clues will increasingly give the player the sense of a shift in the way they think about the main character. Exactly where this happens will vary between players, but it's neatly done.

While the characters are colourfully drawn both literally and in terms of character, with a great attention to the details of their likes, dislikes and small personality details, and several characters are "cute", it's worth noting this isn't a game for very young children. It may not be clear from the game's marketing material which shows the potential heroine clutching her toy rabbit, who is her co-star, but certain sections of the game contain some rather gruesome cartoon violence. Nothing that would worry a teen or adult - we're talking Itchy and Scratchy here - but enough that it might frighten someone younger.

Final thoughts:

An underrated and creepy game with many laughs, but its oblique clues hidden within obscure item combinations and the leaps of logic required for certain puzzles mean it's probably not for those who are new to point-and-click adventures, especially if they are very young children. It's a three-star game, but it shouldn't be left to languish in the pile of the one or two star games it's often thrown in with.

A nice point-and-click adventure from Daedalic. Most puzzles are nice, the story good enough, the characters mental. :) Good combination.

But there are some drawbacks:
* The game does not guide you in any logical way. The only way to solve the puzzles are quite often doing several smaller puzzles for several larger ones in parallel. However, the puzzles are mostly logical, so by taking its time it is definitely solvable.
* The ending was buggy in the English version: the after-events are described after the final decision, but these parts were not visible for me. By switching to the German version it became working, but this is not a solution for everybody.

Altogether, I recommend playing this game for anybody liking point-and-click games, and for those who like games with silly/absurd humour.

It's hard to bridge the gap with some of the sequences, because some of the solutions, to me, come off as a bit random. I do enjoy the story, though a bit more direction would have been nice. When your only clue is you have to escape and noone even gives you a heads up as to when and how the controls switched in certain parts it's a little maddening.

Daedalic made a lot of games. Some of them good, some of them mindblowingly awesome, some of them The Night of the Rabbit. But this one is the best of them all. It's one of the best adventure games in existence. It's made of pure fun. You should try to combine it with every other game made by Daedalic and see what Edna has to say about it.
