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. 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 slightly psychedelic world, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Dali and other great works. Immerse yourself in the soothing sound track, that is also available as a DRM free download

This might be one of the hardest games I have tried to review so far, as far as pros and cons go.

The art style is very well done--a mash-up of cartoon mixed with very surreal objects and environments. It is quite an engaging atmosphere to traverse as you go from each distinctly different room to the next.

You start in a cage and you are on your own from there. It can be rather daunting trying to figure out what you are supposed to do, even from the get go, and you are going to be doing a lot of random clicking on objects that are both identified by a cursor change to let you know that an object is intended to be used or picked up, as well as interactive objects that you are offered no cursor change to signify whether or not it is something that can be used, picked up, or perhaps intended to later be used as part of the seemingly random puzzles that each room offers. There will be lots of orbs that you pick up, with no explanation whether these are merely collectables (which they are as it turns out, so far as I have noticed--I am just past the first "part" of the game) or "inventory objects" for puzzles.

If you don't mind thinking WAY outside of the box and relying mainly on experimentation (or a walkthrough) than this game has a lot to offer. It breaks the traditional mold of a point and click adventure game, and I have yet to decide whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I, personally, enjoy both point and click adventure games as well as hidden object games, and I grew up playing all of those silly Sierra and Lucasarts games that had you often using item in unexpected ways, so the culmination that is Violett is overall appealing to me. It certainly won't be for everyone, but if you can pick it up cheap or in a bundle somewhere, it is definately worth taking a look at. There is something very luring about the abstract areas that you explore, and while some parts are hair-pullingly frustrating, other parts cannot help but make you smile and want to see where else this odd game is going to take you.

Violett is beautiful and have a great music and atmosphere! The actions can be a little random sometimes and you can get very lost if you don't follow a guide to help you, but there is very brilliant and helpful guides in the community, thanks a lot!

If you like games with a fantastic atmosphere, you will love it!

Storyline: Annoyed emo chic Violett gets drags off to the "country" by her upset/angry parents to her uncle's (?) delapitated house, and ends up having a very bizarre adventure like Alice, Corinne or Dorothy (Wizard of Oz, movie; the OZ books are even more bizarre). The enviroments are a tad creepy in nonsensical, illogical and flat out bizarre type of way, much like Wonderland, Oz or where ever Corinne took place, are.
And to all those "there is no story line" complainers out there please explain to me how Alice in Wonderland made any sense at all, ever, in either book or any of the countless movies (and movie remakes). Violett's entire storyline occurs during the preliminary movie, and has absolutely no bearing on the adventure.

Puzzles: Unique and with some very obscure clues at times, plus the gamer really has to look at the details in the background to realize what to do in some cases. Good for that out of the box thinking and improving those observational skills. The logic for the puzzles is there, a tad obsure at times, I admit, but if the gamer takes the TIME to LOOK FOR and TALK TO all the characters, the characters will explain pictorially what to do.

Worst puzzle: Chimneys. Not difficult to figure out just timed. I knew what to do but was highly frustrated by the fact it took so long to do it. Only time I needed a hint, and the hint I needed was that the puzzle was timed. (It would have been easier to do with a reset button too.)
A side note to the puzzles and overall concept: this game makes far more sense and is far easy to play then Limbo.

While playing watch Violett. If she makes a negative Uh-huh sound while vertically moving her hands the gamer is on the wrong track. If she puts her hand under her chin in a thoughtful pose then the gamer is on right track. She is the best clue giver in the game.

For most gamers I would say the biggest drawback is actually taking the TIME to look around and examine the objects while thinking about what to do and where to do it. Half way through the game the gamer starts accumulating an inventory which needs to be used in another enviroment.

Collecting orbs: In my first playthrough I collected 80+, 90+, 90+ of the orbs. Unfortunately some of the green orbs are so well hidden the gamer needs a guide to find them. (They are invisible basically and the gamer needs to know exactly where they are.) Collecting orbs takes TIME, a keen eye, and just a bit of intuitive thinking. They are needed for the end game, so the more the gamer has, the better off the gamer is. (I highly recommend Dspecht's orb hunting guide.)

Overall: Wonderful game with whimsical if not fantiful music. Simple yet highly detailed enviroments. Logic puzzles based solely on the "thinking" of illogical characters (In other words, what to do would make sense to them, not us.) Admittedly the end game surprised me, I definitely was not expecting it.

Biggest drawback: TIME. From all the reviews and comments I have read after I played this game time seems to be the biggest complaint. This game took me a couple of hours to play through the first time, in a very leisurely and casual manner. I enjoyed it immensely, looking at the detailed enviroments, chuckling over the diary pages, and simply shaking my head in amusement at the overall bizarreness. This is not the type of game to speedrun or meant to do as fast as possible. This game is meant to casually stroll through, while doing things like solve puzzles. If an action packed speedrun type of game is what you want then this is not the game for you.

Although I did not like the characters and story much in the beginning the beautiful artwork and soundtrack created a captivating atmosphere that hooked me to this game.
I would absolutely recommend it.

(But play it in english.)

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!
