Oh, Lili, where have you been all my life? It's hard to argue with anyone that might label this as a port of a casual, mobile, kid's game; you'll play as a young woman on a field trip wandering around an island, picking flowers, making friends and not really being challenged all that much. But while all that may be true, to be so reductive is to a do a great disservice to an amazing hidden gem of a game.

The most obvious strength of Lili: Child of Geos is its visuals, as there's a glowing radiance emitting from every individual pore of the world along with everything that populates it. But what's less obvious is the writing that backs it up. I feel like the dialogue in a lot of games is there merely to facilitate moving the player to the next objective or set piece, and I guess that's fair enough since actual game play is typically going to be the feature that gets top billing while the story is little more than connective tissue to form vague context for your actions. However, I think people sometimes forget gaming is an entertainment medium, and there's lots of other ways to entertain besides pure play, a fact this game thankfully does remember and arguably makes its greatest triumph.

The story is a strange mix of being playfully throw-away and surprisingly thoughtful and philosophical. Lili travels to the island of Geos in search of its unique floral life as part of a final school exam, but once there finds it is inhabited by Spirits and their workforce of slave Constructs. These large, wooden homunculi must tolerate the bullying whims of their masters lest they cease to exist upon failure to serve their purpose. I probably make it sound much heavier than it really is, but it does at least dabble with notions of free will and life choices and prioritising the things that are really important to us, which are bigger issues than most titles will ever dare to approach. As it transpires, these Spirits have the most exotic flowers, which also gives them their power over the Constructs, setting the scene for several hours of roaming Geos searching for Constructs to help and Spirits to deflower.

Geos is made up for four medium sized districts that are unlocked sequentially as you rid each one of its Spirits. The game and its world may not be huge, but that just allows them to focus on populating it with beauty as every inch of the environments are lovingly crafted with a wondrous level of detail. In many games you'll find yourself wandering into some stranger's house and find the entirety of their personal dwelling is made up of a table and a few chairs, or maybe a bunk bed and a fireplace if they're lucky, that sort of thing. I love how every single house in this game looks properly lived-in, with bedrooms, kitchens and even bathrooms, which really sells the illusion that this is a real world being inhabited by real people... or wooden slaves and freaky tree spirit things, in this case. I really wish more games would take the same effort to make the peripheries of the world just as interesting as its core like this one does.

Unfortunately, when it comes to game play, that's where I'd probably have to admit the game is at its weakest. You'll spend the majority of your time here either picking flowers, smashing vases, looting chests, talking to people or ambushing Spirits, with the amount of time you spend on each of these things pretty much depending on the type of player you are and what you decide to make your goals for this game. There's no combat as such, and you can't die, the only real challenge being trying to jump on the backs of the game's 50 Spirits and playing rodeo with them as you pluck their flowers off. Otherwise it's all a very leisurely affair, the only other complication being upgrades to help make your plucking experience a little easier.

So, yes, it's kinda short, it's arguably shallow in some areas, and it isn't massively challenging, but there really is so much warmth and charm and personality exuding from every part of this game that I feel like it more than makes up for any other shortcomings. Lili herself in particular is the very embodiment of this as she's an incredibly lovable foil to the rest of the cast and a perfect example of a well-balanced female lead that's entirely capable in her own right rather than lazy developers falling back on sexuality to sell a character. I think there's still great depths of enjoyment to be drawn from Geos, and especially from Lili herself, and I can't wait to join her again on her next adventure.

Adorable and relatively short adventure game with easy gameplay. You play as the girl Lili who visits the island of Geos to find flowers she needs for a school report. The world is not very big and it's divided into four areas that unlock as you complete quests. Most of the game is collecting flowers, breaking vases to pick up coins and entering people's houses to find lore items. There is no combat, instead you engage in mini games in which you defeat enemies by plucking flowers off of their backs. (In other words, there's no violence, but there's some vandalism and tresspassing. :D) There are a bunch of NPCs you can talk to, but the game doesn't have voice acting so expect to do some reading. It's worth it, though; although it can easily be categorized as a casual game, it is surprisingly well written and quite funny. Pick this up if you want something relaxing to play or if you need something non-violent and fun for your kids to play.

This is a relaxing game. There aren't enough games like this.
The graphics are great and do the game justice. The graphics are pleasant to look at and really help the game out. The locations in-game all look unique and are memorable. The lighting is great, and the characters fit very well with it.
On the topic of the characters, they're all great. I recommend going out of your way to talk to as many NPCs as you can. The majority of them have great dialogue. The sense of humor in this game is great as well. It's always nice to see games have a decent sense of humor and not take itself seriously all the time. Most games take themselves seriously too often. Lili : Child of Geos has a unique feeling to it, because it doesn't take itself too seriously. The whole game is calming and it works just fine.
The gameplay is basically walking around, talking to NPCs, and collecting flowers. It sounds boring and for plebs, but it's quite fun. Instead of killing the monsters, you just pluck the flowers off of them. Most of the monsters you do this too are jerks as well. You don't really feel bad for them. Inbetween plucking flowers off of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and walking around, you find items. There's plenty of items you can earn or find just by walking around and interacting with people and things. This game is great if you just want to soak time into something that's calming and peaceful. You can even just sit and look at the environment for ♥♥♥♥s sake.
I'm giving Lili : Child of Geos a rating of 7.8/10.

I love this game SO MUCH!

The visuals are stunning to say the least, the battle system is very unusual, creative, and turned out to be quite a lot of fun (you literally "deflower" more-or-less-evil spirits, without actually killing them). Some dialogues and information sheets about the spirits are totally hilarious!
And some constructs look sooooo adorable! I can definitely recommend this game for children! And adults, of course. ;)
The overall game seems really sweet and wonderful so far.
The story is not that special so far, but it is fitting and I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
