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 But Edna isn’t outdated in any way, thanks on the one hand to the beautiful 2D comic style and on the other hand the out-there humor.”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

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!

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.

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).

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.
