Finding Teddy is one of those games in which I walked in not expecting anything at all, and came out completely awed by what the developers were able to accomplish with this little adventure game. There's a saying that simplicity is the key to brilliance, and that completely applies here. Everything from the story and gameplay to graphics and music is very minimal, but it all comes together to create something more magical than flashier games are able to achieve.

Our story is fairly basic, a little girl sleeps soundly in her room when a monstrous spider sneaks in through the wardrobe and steals her teddy bear. Venturing into the wardrobe to a dream-like world full of dangerous creatures and beautiful landscapes, she must find the spider and rescue teddy. That's all we are given to lead us through the game, and despite the very simple premise, it works.

The mechanics is your basic adventure puzzle fair of finding items and using them on objects and creatures to further your progression through the game world. There is no written dialogue or item descriptions, so a bit of trial and error willl be needed for some puzzles. Despite not having anything spelled out for you, there is a logic at play in specifically the music puzzles; as you slowly figure out the method, everything begins to make sense and the dream world in which you're lost doesn't seem quite as enigmatic as before. This unveiling is accomplished so deftly, it's difficult to explain without destroying the sense of discovery in figuring it out yourself, so I will just leave the point here.

Musically, the soundscape is atmospherically ambient with subdued melodies that resonate an ethereal, dream-like quality. This compliments the strange and mysterious game world and creates a base for the melodies in the music puzzles.

Hand-made pixel graphics make up the world you explore. Knowing that the artists designed every image pixel by pixel is awe inspiring. The colorful palette and gorgeous visual style incorporates impressionistic geometrical elements that give off an otherworldly feel. Everything from the landscapes to character and creature designs are imaginatively conceived, with the final world featuring some of the most creative imagery I've seen from pixel graphics. And to think this game was developed in only 4 months time...

I have very little to complain about as I feel the design is perfect for what it accomplishes. Some may find the lack of instruction or direction to be frustrating, but I believe this was a design choice meant to enhance gameplay and impress upon the player a sense of being lost in a strange world. I came across a few bugs in which the game froze or crashed, but didn't seem to be able to recreate those situations after coming back to it later. Outside of those few bugs, there's not much I consider at fault with the game.

All said, I feel every element of Finding Teddy comes together so perfectly that it elevates the game to a digital work of art. $6.99 for 3+ hours of immense enjoyment seems very fair to me, although it has been featured in numerous bundles for a fraction of that cost and sees frequent sales. Either way, if you are looking for a beautiful game with a simple yet unique take on the adventure genre, I highly recommend picking this one up.

Finding Teddy is a point and click adventure where you are a small girl searching for your lost Teddy whom was kidnapped. You have to solve small puzzles and also collect music notes to see the end of this game. The game has 3 Chapters. Also keep watching out for fireflies in the level you hear a tone ringing when you click with the mouse and if you click near it the tone will make more noise until you finally click on it. The game will take few hours at most to play through and part 2 is already planned. I think the game is cute in its own way and is really charming if you like Point and click like i do i see no problem if you want to buy this game.

What attracted me to this game was the gorgeous artwork and the title, really. It was pretty and I instantly drifted towards the name of "Finding Teddy". I generally don't like these sorts of games but this is a proper exception.

I couldn't like Finding Teddy more.

I don't want to spoil anything for you so here are some superficial reasons why I would recommend this lovely game.

After wishlisting Finding Teddy, I won this game free in a raffle and instantly started playing it. I was met with a cute point and click game with gorgeous graphics and a colour scheme that was refreshing and by far the prettiest I had ever seen, the scheme even rivalling Fez. The artwork is compelling and quite frankly, very sweet to look at. The gameplay is consistent and the puzzles are challenging yet easy to remember when you figure them out. Concerning the soundtrack, it's charming and gives an aura of mystery. The characters are silent yet graceful and are very lovable.

The story is just... adorable. Of course I like these types of story lines and many other people would probably go "meh" and move on, but at the end it was like I had just seen a baby panda try to crawl up stairs. My heart sort've did a fluttering thing and I caught myself with a goofy smile on my face.

Concerning negatives: at times it can be a little frustrating going through the game again and again whilst trying to get the achievements, if you miss one or two, but all in all it's a great experience. Also this game is mainly a one time play, one time experience game, but it's one that you may cherish.

Finding teddy is een hele schattige, simpele maar uitdagende point & click adventure game.

The good side:

The art, environment and story are cute.
You can walk faster by clicking twice on your destination.
The music related puzzles were somewhat original.
Death sequences are great (and with almost no consequences).
The last puzzle was ok.


The bad side:

It's short with almost no replay value (and mostly just for achievements).
Many screens (about 40%, I counted) serve no purpose besides esthetic/ambience (or hidden fireflies, that unlock artworks). And those that do contain something never have more than one purpose.
There's a bit too much backtracking (which is made worse by the previous point).
One "item" is quite pointless and the related puzzle relies on an unexplained mechanic that you will use only once in the full game. (The cat, although a cute companion, will stay available all the time even though it's used only once, it was forcefully crammed in the puzzle you use it for and combining the pets is used only there.)
Another puzzle uses unexplained and specific mechanics. (When you have to combine objects to get rid of the crocodile.)
When trying to figure out the notes you hear, the background sounds will make them hard to discern (turning off sfx/music might help, I haven't tried). The notes will also be played in a loop with a quite short pause in between, which leaves only short intervals for you to try and reproduce them.
The girl will sometimes stand in a place that will make it difficult to click on what you actually want. It's also difficult to click on your companions (it will open the inventory most of the time).
Parts of the HUD should be displayed all the time without having to wait or click blindly, at least the button to access the music sheet. Also, switching from windowed to fullscreen is only available in the main menu.
Some notes are too similar and hard to tell apart. (H and I, M and N, in particular.)
Most of the puzzles were not fun or satisfying to solve.


All in all, this game is quite disapointing. I was expecting much more from it.
It lacks a lot of polish to make it at least enjoyable, even if short.
The dev team congratulates itself in the credits about finishing the project in 4 months. I have to say that, sadly, it shows...

Finding Teddy is a very strange and very simple adventure game. It uses sound in a unique way in the puzzles but once you figure out how its done, the puzzles just become tedious and boring. I feel like the game tries to stand up on its art style and atmosphere, but I find nothing about the game compelling.

The game is quite short depending on how quickly you solve the puzzles, but it forces you to do a second playthrough to get the last couple achievements. It just feels like padding for an unusually short game.

The game was so uninteresting I can't even think of anything else to say about it. There's many better adventure games, so I'd recommend playing one of them instead.

Finding Teddy was an absolutely wonderful surprise. I had kept it on backlog for quite some time, expecting it to be a plain ol’ indie retro 2D platformer. In reality, it is a point & click adventure with a light emphasis on music. The art style is extremely pleasing to look at and the sound is cute but can get a bit annoying at points. One of my favorite parts however, is that Finding Teddy does not suffer from the usual Point & Click trope of being infuriatingly difficult to navigate.
The game is short and sweet, perfect for a nice afternoon adventure. It’s really refreshing to find a great story that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome.

I like pixel art and overall style in this game. Music puzzles are also unusual and for me they were challenging. The game is quite short. It took me only four hours to finish it a few times to get all achievements. So, if you did not buy this game in bundle you may be dissappointed. Nevertheless recommended to all fans of the genre.

+Lovely pixel world
*It's a "point'n'click" adventure with moustly music-puzzles.
A "A-Z"-letter system of sounds (All sounds are available. Nameless at begging)
You listen a music-code and must repeat with your console
or solving a problem with a word (english knowledge needed)
+If you finish once then you will want to complete again
*Alert children: some brutal scenes


5/5 .You will wish to listening the ending theme a lot

Сразу видно, что даже в такой маленький проект вкладывали душу. Я не слишком придираюсь к графике, ибо здесь она не столь значима (А для меня так тем более, ибо я фанат 8-ми битных игр), как например геймплей, хотя, "Finding Teddy" я полюбила скорее за звуковое сопровождение, хотелось прослушивать мелодии вновь и вновь, настолько душевные и приятные, и...за концовку. Что сказать насчет головоломок...Не слишком сложные оказались, но больше всего раздражало то, что иногда не знаешь, какую конкретно нужно "напеть" мелодию.
Пролог начинается с этого: Одной глубокой темной ночью "конечность" паука пробирается в детскую комнату из шкафа и забирает плюшевого медвежонка из рук маленькой девочки, та, конечно же, в недоумении, подошла на место "кражи", и...оказалась в другом измерении. Теперь, вся ответственность передается в ваши руки, и, именно вам, необходимо помочь девочке найти своего "друга", пройти через все "преграды" на ее пути и сделать из монстров друзей)
Мои оценки игре:
Сюжет (Нам всего лишь нужно пройти головоломки и вернуть обратно игрушку, какой тут может быть сюжет? =))
Атмосфера - 8 из 10.
Звуковое сопровождение - 9 из 10.
Графика (Насчет этого многие геймеры поспорили бы, а такой графике я всегда дам 10 баллов ).
И, пожалуй, на этом я завершу свой обзор, получился он не настолько объемный, но, зато я рассказала основную часть.
Спасибо за внимание! =)

I finished this game a week or two ago and already forgot about it. That should tell you everything you need to know. The concept of using music as the main source of dialogue was interesting, but in the beginning you can be left wondering what you're supposed to do - looking at you bird feather statue. On a positive note, the hand drawn graphics do look great.

5/10

A top contender for "Are games art", but not so much in the "game" category.

Finding Teddy is a simple point & click videogame that feature a very beautiful pixel art and a short story. The game is a strait forward, and can be finished in less than 2 hours. The art style make it seems like early platform games that was released in the late 80s and early 90s.

The art and nostalgic feeling you can get from the game is enough for the price. There is little repayable value. It has hidden treasures and steam achievements that were put by the developers for those who want to have a 2nd try in the game.

If you want to spend an easy relaxing artistic hour of videogame and pixel art, look no further.

I recommend this game.

Finding Teddy is a very charming indie point and click adventure game developed by Storybirds (a French start-up developer) and published by Lookatmygame.

Graphics:
- Wonderful, imaginative, colourful and vibrant colour palette
- Art style is unique

Sound:
- Very unique in its implementation as it's a major component when it comes to the puzzles

Story:
- Fairy tale in its imaginations. You play an anonymous young girl whose teddy is stolen in the middle of the night, by a monster that comes out of her wardrobe. It's her mission to locate the source of these troubles and to get her teddy back!

Gameplay:
- Unique both in terms of art design and in the fact it features no dialogue
- Combines traditional point and click elements
- Has musically-inspired puzzles using actual notations
- Not too difficult
- Companions may join you adventure
- There's an interesting side-quest for players to unravel once they overwrite their previous save game
- Has some nice achievements and artwork to collect
- Very short (though from my point of view this is not detrimental)

Conclusion:
- Use of music as the basis of its puzzles is interesting
- Very short
- Charming art direction

Indie rating 8.5/10

A magically journey through ones wardrobe that re-built my own soul.
I was highly happy to make a few friends along the way to help me get through some fears.
Nonetheless, home was so close but yet was so far.
8/10
Verdict: Wait for sale.

simple yet somehow very captivating point-and-click.
if you allow yourself to let it get under your skin, it's also emotionally captivating.

while pixel graphics do not make a very impressive game, i cannot argue with it being realised well with its artistic vision in mind.

takes a couple (2-4) well-spent hours to finish.
recommend.

Point and click your way trough this short game, short but sweet. Music and sound hints are an important part of this game, so you better play it with headphones or in a quiet room.

The puzzles are easy to grasp except a couple of ones based on music. These might be confusing because a few of them doesn't show a visual feedback while playing (showing "~" instead of notes).

7/10.

How many ways can we murder this little girl?

Story: 20/25 Gameplay: 15/25 Graphics: 23/25 Sound: 22/25

OVERALL: 80/100

This is a story about a girl trying to find her teddy bear ... and you murdering her to get achievements. The story is actually pretty good and is explained entirely by your actions and context. I found the gameplay frustrating and a little annoying most of the time, with some parts of it just not feeling intuitive at all. The graphics looked beautiful and everything just seemed to fit together. This goes too for the sound, as the sound and visuals intertwined. It is rather short and you are forced to play through twice in order to do everything. I'd say get it on a sale.

I received this as part of a bundle, and I didn't really know what the game was. I loaded it up blindly and...I'm glad I did.

The environments are beautiful, the music fits the areas you're in, and is amazing.
It's a simple point and click adventure filled with puzzles. It took me a while to figure out how to decipher the musical notes, but once I did, it was a "How could I not see that" moment.
It took me just under 2 hours to finish without finding all the fireflies, so that's about the length you're looking at. I have to do another playthrough to find them all.

The story is just incredible. There are no voice actors in this game, no text narrative, all you know is that you have to reclaim your teddy. Yet come the end of the game, you'll see how much deeper the story actually goes. The ending made it for me. Completely reminded me of Monsters Inc, and even the credits were fun to read, with the little notes the devs put in.

Absolutely amazing game, but I wouldn't say it's worth the price it is, but should you see it discounted, definitely snatch it up!
