Hi,

In this update we addressed an issue that was often mentioned. Controls. Now you do not have to make a swiping motion to activate an item or action. You just have to click on it and it happens automatically. We still recomment the original type of controls, but if you have trouble or just find them annoying you can toggle them in the options.

Om spillet

Set in a world full of wonders, quirks and things from beyond our reality, Violett is a remarkable adventure game that will push your brain to the limits and engross you completely.

Dragged by her parents, a young and rebellious teenage girl – Violett, moves to an old spooky house in the middle of nowhere. Forced away from her friends and life in the city; she imagines how boring life in countryside will be: spending day after day, bored in her room with absolutely nothing to do. But what she cannot imagine, is that in just few moments, she'll have the adventure of her life.

A spark of light from the nearby mouse hole catches her attention, she reaches inside and in a blink of an eye she's in a completely different place. So familiar, yet so distant. So magnificent, and yet dangerous. A place where frogs singing operas are daily occurrence, garden gnomes are emissaries from another dimension and power of telekinesis is not freaking anyone out. Now only your wit and luck can help her unite with her parents.

Rack your brain on intricate puzzles that will allow you to move forward. Use the power of telekinesis to get you out of your troubles. Fight the evil spider queen that wants to make you her new trophy. Use your touch to roam the beautiful and psychedelic world, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Dali and other great works. Immerse yourself in the soothing sound track

So, this game is pretty and that's about it.

Without a narrative, you have no idea what it is you're doing and why you're doing it.
You are doing puzzles that are almost completely random so you're just doing trial and error until it works and half the time I didn't even understand WHY it worked. It was just a thing that I did. Difficulty pays off when things become clear, but this is just "pull this until a thing happens." The puzzles are only difficult by virtue of the fact that they make little sense. Also, your telekinetic ability is incredibly selective; you can effect something a screen away, but you can't use it to pick something up that's just out of physical reach?

Music is pretty boring, the gibberish that passes as speech is very grating on my ears and the sound in general made no impact whatsoever on me.

It was a waste of $9.99 and I regret the purchase wholeheartedly.

The graphics are fantastically pretty.

But, that's about all I can wholehearedly endorse about Violett. The best puzzle-adventure games use subtle signalling to show the user what's possible and have a sort of internal logic and consistency. Violett is not really one of these games. There were a number of really nice "Oh hey, this situation reminds me of this thing I saw a couple rooms back maybe I can use that oh look it worked" bits, but maybe 20% of the time what you were required to do made no sense at all and it just degenerated into "click random things on the screen until something changes." Especially the parts where there are several on/off switches strewn about the screen and you get to guess which ones should be set which way.

They probably knew this sort of thing happened, which is why they put in the hinting system. Unfortunately, even if you take the hint for what you're supposed to do there's still no guarantee that you can actually do it: the controls are often fidgety and difficult to get to work with a mouse, something that was especially frustrating in the later parts of the game where you had to actually time actions properly. I'm guessing the controls were actually designed for a tablet of some sort.

The first part of the game is by far the most irritating, due to needing to getting used to the controls and on account of the illustration-based explanation style. Probably they did that in order to avoid needing translation, but sometimes the explanatory illustrations are as mysterious as much of the rest of the game.

Speaking of translation, they clearly didn't get anyone native to look at their English. Fortunately it's all flavor text so you can ignore it.

All that said--it's not actually bad, so pick it up if it's on sale or something. Just expect to spend the first 30 minutes cursing.

General disclaimer: I don't generally play casual point-and-click games, which might account for some of the controls difficulties. I do like and play puzzle solving games.

Abstruse and sometimes outright broken in its design elements, Violett commits the worst crime for an adventure game: it confronts the player with poorly designed puzzles that require little logic and lots of luck and clueless clicking in order to be solved.An intriguing premise and interesting art style aren’t enough to drag Violett up to the level of other more accomplished point and click adventures.You might enjoy the time that you spend with Violett, but you should approach it with modest expectations and a good deal of patience.Still, Violett is only priced at $10, and it’s probably the type of game that’s going to go on sale a lot, so if you’re looking for something different then it’s not the worst thing in the world to purchase and try out.Overall 5/10.

Violett is a little girl tumbling into a fantastic adventure where she shrinked to the size of a bug. While the main aim is to find back home to her parent's house, she needs to solve lots of puzzles with many crosslinks. The graphics are nice and cute, the music is interesting like some film score. She can only walk - in the beginning. Through her journey, she will find many balls/orbs in three different colors and three special glowing orbs that gives her special powers (jump, psychokineses and defense shield). The normal balls will fill the energy levels for all three powers.

She has to go to the same scenes several times to completely solve all puzzles and many orbs are hidden very well (sometimes they are invisible hidden). If you are stuck, you can get help with the icon circle in the lower right. If she speaks with animals, you only here some strange queeks with some words and speech bubbles explaining the required item in sketches.

The very first scene, where she is trapped in a cage, can only be played once - all other scenes can be visited again. There is an autosave feature but you might want to save your game already right in this first scene (in case you want to get all achievements by finding all orbs). You can also save your current game in new save slots, if you like. Unfortunately, the game "froze" a few times, i.e. Violett wasn't able to move anymore, everything else continued on the screen. But saving and restarting solved these issues.

<SPOILER ON>
The very last scene is some kind of boss fight with the spider queen but I wasn't able to move Violett as I liked to. I somehow made it but this was just try and error and some luck. Too bad as an end for this nice puzzle adventure.
</SPOILER OFF>

Despite the few glitches, I recommend this time waster as it is challenging and has nice graphics, music and puzzles.

This game is oozing with style.

Unfortunately that's all its got going for it. The puzzles are horrible and unintuitive. The interface gets stuck at times, forcing you to reload. The tips were not helpful and from the very start I wondered how to use items from the inventory, what the interaction mechnics were, etc.
The music, while fitting, never appealed to me melody-wise, it just wasn't memorable music.
Getting lost in the 'lobby' or staircase area isn't my idea of a fun staging area.

But more than anything... you will just get stuck in a senseless and/or broken puzzle, even sometimes to the point of having to restart the entire game over.

I'm sorry I spent a dime of my money on this.... don't waste yours.

This game reminds me of Coraline and the gameplay itself is rather fun, this coming from my experience in other point and click games.

From the brief amount of time I have played, i've noticed something which to me seemed rather annoying. If Violett can't perform a specific task there is a 3-4 second wait while she shakes her head.

I recommend you pick this up while the launch sale is still on!
