Reviews

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 But Edna isn’t outdated in any way, thanks on the one hand to the beautiful 2D comic style and on the other hand the out-there humor.”

About the Game

The award-winning debut adventure game from the creators of Deponia and The Whispered World now on Steam. Accompany young Edna and her talking stuffed bunny Harvey on a whacky attempt to escape from her padded cell. Experience a bizarre journey all across the insane asylum and far beyond its brick walls.

At the beginning, young Edna wakes up in the padded cell of an insane asylum with no memory of her past. She doesn’t have the slightest idea how she wound up there, but one thing is for sure, she wants out! After all, she feels perfectly sane – and her talking stuffed bunny Harvey agrees completely. Together, they attempt an escape and, in doing so, meet their extremely bizarre fellow patients – from the man in the bee costume to the pseudo-Siamese twins Hoti and Moti. But Dr. Marcel, head of the asylum, will stop at nothing to keep Edna from escaping. What does he have planned for her? And why was her memory erased? Gradually, Edna regains her memory of the time before her detention in her cell…

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.

This game is a great throw back to the classic point and adventure games of the past. The artwork is great and fits the bizzare feel of the game and its colorful cast of insane characters. And the story is great from begining to end, though it does get very dark as it progresses, even with some genuenly shocking revelations. I had my guesses of what would happen but I was way off. If I had anything bad to say about the game, the controls point and click interface glitched every so often making me stuck on a puzzle because I am unable to click on an item that is clearly regestring in the game. Also, just like the p.o.c. games of yore, you may be stuck on a puzzle for a very long time til either revelation or gamefaq comes to you.

I wanted to recommend this game, I really did. The gameplay and plot are both excellent.

However, I had to install it on my Windows XP laptop since the game refused to run on my Windows 7 build, and I am not the only one with a "crash when choosing start" problem.

However, once I got the game running on XP, I thought it was smooth sailing.

Nope.

There is a gamebreaking bug about halfway in the game with a puzzle involving the kitchen menu. I had to switch to German language to get past this sequence after losing all my progress. The bug locks you out of saving, loading, or doing anything but quitting via Task Manager.

There is another bug that causes an engine crash if you combine two certain items in your inventory together when you reach the church.

There are a few instances where dialog is missing for the English version but not the German.

However, the worst sin is the fact the THE ENDING CREDITS AND PLOT SUMMERY ARE MISSING FOR THE ENGLISH VERSION IF YOU TAKE THE DOCTOR PATH.

They are perfectly fine in German.

This game WAS NOT PROPERLY TESTED FOR THE ENGLISH PORT.

I have waited months for a reply from their tech support... no answer.

This game is the first ever release from its makers. While the story is creative and the dialogue is witty, there are several game-breaking bugs that defy prediction. I even had trouble with the endings - one ending wouldn't display at all, while another glitched out partway through. It's not just bugs that give trouble though; the game is lacking from a user friendliness standpoint. Navigating the general area you spend most of your time in gets tedious where it really didn't need to, and some really nice features to have such as dialogue skip (!) and windowed mode exist but you would never know without Google. And there are a few puzzles that simply don't hint enough at an unintuitive solution with ridiculously time-consuming implementation, such as the infamous WC puzzle.

My recommendation is to wait for a remake, or watch a letsplay. If you want to play something like this game but overall vastly improved, I recommend the barely related sequel, Harvey's New Eyes.

So far, it's funny. A pretty decent game. The graphics are lacking a bit but the story is cool.
