Sadly there are utterly gamebreaking bugs in the game.
A hairnet not spawning in your save = You have to replay from start again.
I've not felt like playing further since due to it.

And yes, I double checked to see if it would be there if I made a new game - and it was.
So sometimes, an item will not spawn and will prevent you from progressing completely and you'll have to start over....

I spent 4+ hours in this normal version, taking in the story and whatnot, put the game away for a LONG time due to IRL stuff and then came back to it - special edition this time....
and to meet this type of game breaking bug is really not making me want to try get as far again.

It has a lovely soundtrack, some quirky characters and lovely artstyle, it's a shame the technical stuff seems to have gone bonkers.

Another fantastic point and click adventure game from Daedalic. The voice acting is great(if you can get past the main character's obnoxious one), and the world(and art) is simply whimsical. The story was really neat and unexpected.

A Succint Review:
Interesting story
Interesting characters
Decent puzzles that aren't too aggitating
Ending was a twist
Maybe not a good twist
But a twist
You have to click like 400 times to get it to accept your first click
I have no idea why

The controls and the handling is terrible. The graphics are decent but Sadwick makes me feel miserable due to his "everything's carp" tinted glasses. The story is odd and I have lost interest after getting stuck the fifth time already.
Not my kind of game - but if you like Point and clicks - sure.

The voice is annoying, the clicking is annoying. And then it doesn't matter, once you got sucked in the story and the surrounding (which reminds me of Ghibli movies). The ending left me in awe.

I'm frustrated. This game is fun, has some decent puzzles (and some slightly obtuse ones), and pushes the limits on item-combining shenanigans, providing unique responses to almost every combination I tried. I liked the art style and was charmed by the complicated ideas it presented, as well as drawn to the nihilistic, cowardly, and deceitful Sadwick. I wasn't bothered much by the minor clicking glitches, too absorbed in doing everything possible to try to save or maybe destroy this world I got sucked into.

But then. The ending. The kind of an ending this got can work sometimes, if there's a sufficient buildup or a particularly engaging message. But this time, it just felt like nonsense, completely invalidating my investment in the game. I can't help but be pretty disappointed. All of the questions raised, like if there can be a stagnation-induced stability, or whether you could fight fate, or what the world's state means and why the people in power aren't fixing it, these questions are all dismissed in favor of some new character I have no reason to care about.

Still, the enjoyment in the rest of the game was good enough for me to recommend it, though I'd try to wait for a sale if possible.

Same as The Night of Rabbit which brings you to storytelling before sleep and drag you back to childhood life.
the good thing of this game is NO VIOLENCE, NO BLOOD, NO STRATEGY, NO ACTION. Just drama and there is a guide to solve the adventures.

I enjoyed playing this game. I just had sound problems but after setting everything in Windows to Stereo Sound, that was solved. Klicking is no problem, as said before... you need to read instructions ^^
The Story is very basic. I found the ending a bit surprising. I am a beginner regarding Point & Click Games but overall I thought it wasn´t that difficult. Some puzzle were more difficult than others but nothing too hard.

I REALLY wanted to like this game, I truly did. Its a Daedalic game, and they're great at point and click adventure games. But the trouble lies in the story and main character. Trying my best no to spoil the game, none of your actions matter in the end. Even the last action you do didn't have true choice to it. I think multiple endings might've changed my opinion, like the element of choice in Edna and Harvey 2.

Also Sadwick is just... the worst. Like the absolute worst character. His voice is annoying and EVERY SINGLE DAMN COMMENT is a complaint, a lament, or a whine followed by a long winded sigh. I couldn't even enjoy the rest of the voice acting and ended who muting my computer because I hated it so much

Try another Daedalic title, because theres just way better from them out there. The only reason I do not recommend this game is because they have so much better in there library to choose from

"This statue ain't moving. Pretty much like everything else in my life."
One of my most favorite genres is point n' click and Daedalics are THE titans of point and clicks. I learn more about the characters if I explore everything. It takes me a while but I'm in no hurry. After all, that's how point and click should be played. No such thing as speed run. Everytime Daedalics tell a different story that makes me want to stay with characters longer. A pity every story has an end. The day will come when you'll have to bid farewell to your fictional friends.

This time it's a story about Sadwick the sad clown and Spot the caterpillar - his handsome sidekick and best friend. Sadwick is a lovable character. He's a lovely satirist and a courageous boy. Complains about problems but still tries his best to do everything in his power and can't leave things undone. He's not your casual hero that likes making promises and then break them. He's more like an anti-hero that doesn't care about fame and glory. He just wants to fix the big end-of-the-world problem. The nightmare that he has been having turned out to be a good excuse to start exploring the world. He is very insecure and has anxiety problems so I can relate to him. I wish I were as brave as that kiddo. Sadwick isn't as stupid and useless as his older brother Ben makes him feel. I've always wanted to punch that guy for bullying Sadwick. I could never forget about the awesome talking rock bros - Ralv and Yngo, that wanted to enslave the world with a rock hard fist but sadly they couldn't do anything but lie about. Grandpa's underpants are more useful than arrogant Bobby the Chaski. I played it in english and I like Sadwick's voice. Not sure why people think he has an annoying voice. I think it's quite adorable.
That game has a deep meaning and I would hate to ruin it with spoilers.
I just wonder how many of us would like to preserve the world they've been living in without changing anything or whatsoever and for what price.

The story has it charm and i feel good enough entertained for my playtime. The graphics could have sometimes more details (flowers or something) but most time they are really fine with charming and interesting creatures. Sound has positiv sides. The gameplay is good, with the many combination (see, speak, touch) items and places you can get/ find some funny dialogs. The game could be a bit longer but i think its good if you get 50 % discount. I give this game for his style 91 % for real Point and Click fans.

Look, i wanted to like this game but in the end I'd say its about as good as Edna and Harvey. The visuals were good and the story was decent but the voice acting was a bit annoying and all the puzzles were random. This game is extremely hard to complete without a walkthrough. The problem is I didn't like the main character just like I didn't like the main characters in the Edna and Harvey series. When you can't identify with the character, it looses its power. Still, it was an enjoyable enough of a game and I do look forward to its sequel. I still highly reccomend buying the daedalic pack on its 90% of sale. All the games combined are totally worth it. This game was decent but all in all, the Satinav Series is the best one.

Yes, this is definitely a worthwhile game to play. I've enjoyed playing Daedalic Games all the time, from Rufus's ridiculous antics in Dapeonia to the heart-warming stories of the Treewalkers and Marquis.

You'll find so much creativity in Daedalic games, from the description of the Memory Thieves to the beautiful artwork of the Multi-eyed Angler Fish (You'll have to find those things on your own).

PROS
1. Creative Storyline
It starts out extremely boring at the beginning but the story gets better as you progress. You'll find tons of interesting imaginatives scattered all over the place to keep you interested. Proper storytelling. E.g. Asgil (GILSA) just make one wonder what they look like.

2. Artwork
Good quality. I enjoyed the graphics and the way the art comes alive in the animations. E.g. Bruno sleeping at the Circus.

3. The Story Twist
Heh... Not bad... I understand the meaning of the "Whispered World" now. In reflection, I think I won't leak any spoilers.

CONS
1. Too Difficult
It's nearly impossible to complete. You have to use Daedalic's Gameboomer walkthrough in order to finish it. How does one catch a rat with a sock? Or use a rat to save a pair of pants?

2. Ridiculous Stuff
Picking pantaloons with rats? Oil from milking a cow? No conservation of mass? Some things just niggle at you in the wrong way due to how illogical it is.

NEUTRAL
1. Alternative Ending
I couldn't be bothered to find it as the game was just too long.

Another amazing daedelic game! I always look forward to the amazing daedelic artwork and stories and this games lives up to it. Like any daedelic point and click, it's extremely challenging, and you'll find yourself wanting a walkthrough. It has a great story (with a twist ending!) and you really fall in love with the main character and his pet. At first I had a little trouble with the controls (without a mouse), but eventually I figured them out and ended up really enjoying the game. I recommend it to any daedelic fan or any point and click fanatic, and I hope you buy and enjoy the game!

Další hra od mých oblíbených Daedalic:)

Krásná ručně kreslená grafika, kdy hlavně lokace jsou zpracované opravdu na jedničku s hvězdičkou.

Přítomnost Sadwickova sidekicka Spota je potěšující a hlavně nezbytná kvůli jeho schopnostem, jejichž využívání příjemným způsobem osvěžuje hratelnost. Hodně se mi líbila jedna část, kde Sadwick zůstal trčet za zavřenou bránou a já se ujmul kontroly nad Spotem a s ním a pouze s ním jsem musel přijít na to, jak bránu otevřít, což vzhledem k faktu, že housenka nemá ruce a je poměrně malého vzrůstu, je úkol nadmíru těžký.

Příběh: povedený a hlavně konec je zajímavý. Celkově se jedná o solidní old-schoolovou adventuru (btw pixelhunting se nekoná, protože všechny aktivní místa se dají zvýraznit mezerníkem) s velice přitažlivým audio-vizuálním zpracováním a povedeným příběhem zasazeným do kouzelného světa plného zajímavých míst a bytostí.

+ hudba, ručně kreslená grafika, postavy, Spot a jeho schopnosti, zajímavé zakončení
- několik nelogických kombinací, chybí systém nápovědy, ušišlaný Sadwick

"I should have fed him in time..."

The Whispered World is one of Daedalic Entertaintment's adventure titles, and promises a lot as it starts, yet fails to keep any of those promises throughout the game itself. I wasn't expecting an experience as grand as Memoria, but at least hoping for the kind of quality in story and display of beauty as we encountered in Chains of Satinav. What I encountered, was beautiful potential spent badly on a sad little clown.

The storybook opens and a worn-out narrator warns us that this will be the last story that he'll be telling ever. Then, we meet Sadwick: the sad little clown. He is a misanthropic, pessimistic and annoying little boy who runs a circus alongside his brother Ben and his grandfather. One morning, Sadwick jumps down from his bed, shaken and terrified of a nightmare that indicates the world is ending. Oh, wait! According to a messenger of the King that Sadwick will be meeting in the forest, the world IS ending for reasons that we are not aware yet. The messenger Bobby advices Sadwick to seek Shana, a mythical oracle that resides in the forest who can interpret Sadwick's dream. With a quest at hand, Sadwick's journey towards the unknown starts...

I'll start with my most basic complaint: the game doesn't work properly! There is an odd clicking bug that starts the minute you run the game, and keeps haunting you until the very end. You have to click on something 5-6 times for the game to acknowledge that you are clicking on it. It is hellishly annoying for a POINT AND CLICK adventure game. The puzzles themselves are obscure and random enough, and you never know whether you're trying the wrong item combination, or just game doesn't register your clicking. On that manner, it is impossible to finish the game without divine persistency and a walkthrough.

The background art and the interface music are pretty, as if taken from a German folktale. But characters and the style of art chosen to illustrate them are off putting. Animations are broken half the time, and the lip synch with the audio is non-existent. It takes forever for Sadwick to walk with the given animation. It seems all these issues are commonly known for the "Special Edition" and no solution has been offered for now.

As a character, our protagonist Sadwick is incredibly annoying and lacks personal depth. His voice is off putting - and drives you insane since we'll be with him only until the end of game. There is no logical correlation between story progression and any kind of visible personal growth either. Nothing justifies his choices, and nothing explains them either. There is also no observable reason to Sadwick's endless vailing or suffocating pessimism to begin with. Sadwick is a character which is impossible to empathize with. He is basically shallow.

As for Spot's - Sadwick's victimized caterpillar - transformations and the way that Sadwick treats him, I found it to be disgusting. Poor little thing is literally tortured to even achieve given transformations! He is sliced, pressed and burned numerous times without even a single complain! He is even nailed to a rack as part of a puzzle nearing the end of the game. If I were to be Spot, I'd tell Sadwick: "♥♥♥♥ you! ♥♥♥♥ you for being a selfish and miserable fool! ♥♥♥♥ you for putting me through all these ordeals! You don't deserve neither my loyalty nor my affection! I'm done with you, Sadwick! Go play the part of the sadistic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on someone else! ♥♥♥♥ you!” Whew, sorry. I gotta get that off my chest.

I definitely don't recommend this game, for its broken controls, its annoying protagonist, its sick sense of humor, and definitely for its dramatized yet shallow ending. Sorry, guys and gals. I finished this game through sheer willpower and an obsession for completing a story that I started. I love the next Daedalic adventure just as you do, but this one doesn't worth it.

A Point & Click Adventure where you can't click! How novel!

Seriously, this game has been broken since launch (going on a year) and still has not been fixed and it appears the Developers never plan to fix it. If I hadn't gotten a free upgrade from the Classic version I would have demanded my money back!

The only way this game is playable is to download the Source Code for the Open Source Simple DirectMedia Layer, make the change listed at http://hg.libsdl.org/SDL/rev/e3a80970cf0b and recompile into a .dll and save it in your game directory. Why the Devs can't do this for those who aren't familiar with modifying third-party code and compiling from source is beyond me. Is it just laziness, apathy, or a simple case of "Doesn't matter, already got your money"? Apparently Daedalic Entertainment thinks they are Ubisoft.

0/10 in it's current state.

The original is great, but the Special Edition has broken audio - every spoken sentence ends a split second before the speaker has finished talking. Still not fixed...

Play the original Whispered World, not this "Special" edition.

I bought this game a few years ago for 40 or 50€. Boxed version. I played it through as fast as I was able to. It's very atmospheric and the backgrounds look epic.

As far as my son will be old enough to enjoy such games, it's one of the very first games we'll play together.

I still remember what happened at the very end of the game. Just this moment is worth to invest time and money into this game.
