Overall, this was an enjoyable, unique game and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys adventure games with strong dialogue and a compelling plot. The game is, however, flawed with strange bugs. For example, the game will just pop back to the menu screen randomly. You can click "return to game" and it will go back to where it crashed, but still a bug. The cut scenes are the weakest part of the game, with terribly cheap-looking animations. Even the director commentary details how they ended up outsourcing the cut scenes to save money.

Despite these oddities, the game is funny, the main character Sadwick is lovable and I enjoy following him through the story. His commentary is so fresh, I literally clicked on everything I could just to hear what he would say when he touched, looked, and licked something (yes, one of the optionis a mouth, and you can "mouth" every object). The fact that he also has a lovable, strangly malleable pet catepillar is all the more enjoyable.

The puzzles are pretty lame (one is even a slider puzzle...) but you can skip them. The real fun comes with the object puzzles and this awesome sequence where you control your pet Spot.

The game is a little overly existential with a peculiar ending, but the game is solid and kind of a gem.

Classic Daedalic P&C-adventure. Actually, I think it's their best work, speaking of the world, characters, story, charm, drawings etc. The puzzles are ok, but the rest is super awesome.

enjoyable story but kind of clunky mechanics. Dialoge doesnt always finish and some puzzles are so unlogical you wonder how they even managed to come up with it but good game overall. 6/10

The art work looks good but the English voice acting is appauling. Making the main character so unlikeable doesn't drive me to find out more about him it just makes me turn the voices off.

Cute, beautiful backdrop, and storybook like. However the protagonist voice gets a little annoying. Would recommend none the less!

Nice game. It's enchanting and sad but humorous too which is something Daedalic seem to be good at. As other people have mentioned the solutions to some of the puzzles are totally bizarre, you wouldn't get them without a walkthrough or trying absolutely everything. Don't let that put you off though because the majority of the puzzles are completely fine. Another strange thing was that the game was beautifully drawn and animated, great details but the cutscenes were of a much lower quality. And I didn't like the ending but that's just personal preference.
All in all this is a lovely game if you like point and click adventures but I wouldn't say it's worth the full price.

If you like point and click games I think you should already know that Daedalic Entertainment are the masters of this genre. And The Whispered World: Special Edition doesn't disappoint in the eyes of fans.
I have to be honest with you, I've encountered none of the problems reported by the earlier reviewers. I don't know whether they have been patched or not by this time, but my experience in the game leads me to believe that they have been.

In this game, we follow the journey of Sadwick, a want-to-be hero with clinical depression, who discovers that he has been fated to destroy the world. As you can imagine, he rejects this prophesy, determined instead to save the world from crumbling to dust. Sadwick is a clown in the fantastical realm of Silentia, where he travels with a circus featuring only his brother, his grandfather, and himself. His life consists only of menial chores, burping the alphabet for audiences, and playing the cannonball in the headlining human cannonball act. His brother despises him and his senile grandfather forgets he exists. So yeah, he's a pretty lonely and depressive character. The game is full of dark jokes like "This statue ain't moving. Pretty much like everything else in my life." which is pretty funny and emotional at the same time. You will find yourself asking a lot of times if you should cry of laughter or maybe of sadness. Also, Spot, the caterpillar, is his handsome sidekick and the only friend he has, but they are a great team together. The main character complains about a lot of problems but he tries to do everything in his power to don't leave things undone. He's not your casual hero that likes making promises and breaking them after. He doesn't care about fame and glory. He just wants to fix the big end of the world problem. The nightmares that he has been having turnes out to be a good excuse to start exploring the world in which he lives. So that's how his adventure begins.

The world created by the developers is vibrant, creative and beautifully brought to life through the eyes of Sadwick. And while many complain that the ending was awful, the story really got into me and let me tell you that it will have a very emotional impact on you too. Like any Daedalic Entertainment game would do.

Pros
- The story is fantastic and quite emotional with an great impactful ending.
- Absolutely stunning hand-drawn artwork!
- Excellent soundtrack that should get you excited for the fantastical adventure that follows.
- Over 10 hours of story-driven atmosphere!
- Developer commentary on each and every screen in the game you can listen to, that offers great insights into the art direction, story, and puzzle design, with a few puzzle solutions spoiled. Or stories and memories from the development process if you are interested about how the game was done.

Cons
- No widescreen support even though it's special edition.
- Many illogical and obtuse puzzles. A couple of puzzles make no sense until after you’ve figured them out by accident. So don't be ashamed, open a handy walkthrough for occasional use and enjoy the beautifully told and realized story!
- Sadwick’s voice takes some time getting used to, and the voices are sometimes interrupted with a second before finishing the sentence.
- Some of the dialogue and humor feel awkward.

Conclusion
Sadwick is a lovable character. He's a lovely sarcastic and courageous boy with a bipolar side. Like any kid, he's confused about a lot of things, he's very insecure and has anxiety problems which will let many people relate to him. This game is a nice portal to our childhood and I'm sure you'll find yourself a lot of times in the main character. The story is suitable for just about everyone, so you can play it with your kid if you want to. In the end, how much you enjoy this game will be particularly subjective, depending on what you look for in an adventure game. If you’re willing to tolerate some ludicrous puzzles to enjoy a beautiful world with gorgeous, top notch art and music, you’ll find The Whispered World worthwhile.

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.

Encore un merveilleux conte, signé Daedalic ! On prend plaisir à découvrir chaque nouveau tableau, dessiné à la main, aux commandes du cynique Sadwick, un clown horriblement maladroit qui passe son temps à geindre, et à intéragir avec Spot, son adorable compagnon changeur de forme. Et cette fin, magnifique... J'ai hâte de jouer à la suite !

Pour y jouer en français (voix et textes) j'ai installé la version "normale" du jeu pas la "spécial édition".

Un peu surprenant au début (graphismes "à la main", boutons d'action) mais ce jeu d'aventure "classique" est vraiment bien.

J'ai mis quasiment 18 heures pour le terminer, bien sûr pour certaines choses j'ai pas mal tourné en rond avant de trouver la solution : il faut bien regarder partout pour ne pas rater des objets et ne pas hésiter à tester toutes les combinaisons possibles (même les plus étranges) et d'épuiser les dialogues si besoin.

La localisation en français est plûtot de qualité, les voix et répliques sont agréables et les situations amusantes.

Un petit plus sympa est l'utilisation de "Spot" l'animal de compagnie, qui peut lui aussi agir avec ces différents "pouvoirs" pour faire avancer l'histoire.

C'est un jeu "Old School" où les tableaux et les objets ne sont pas trop nombreux ce qui permet de ne pas trop rester bloqué quand même. Au delà du point and click et de la combinaison d'objets, il-y-a quelques petits puzzles typiques pas trop difficiles.

L'histoire plutôt rigolote est décomposée en 4 chapitres qui permettent de renouveller les décors.

Je le recommande pour les amateurs du genre. Je l'ai refait en parallèle avec mes enfants qui le vivent comme une histoire animée.

J'ai également testé la version "special Edition" (en anglais) pour débloquer les succès steam, il me semble que les dessins ont parfois été retravaillés, une option de "je passe le puzzle" est disponible, il y a des commentaires des developpeurs. Toutefois, il m'a semblé que le click de la souris répondait un peu moins bien dans cette version : parfois il fallait double cliker parfois non... J'ai rencontré également un bug qui m'empêchait d'interagir (mais une seule fois).

En ayant déjà fait le jeu, je n'ai mis que 3 heures et demi pour le re-faire entièrement : soit quasiment 5 fois plus vite que ma première tentative, quand on connais tout celà va extremement vite !

Bon jeu !

J'ai adoré la plupart des jeux de Daedalic, mais pas celui-ci. Je ne l'ai donc pas complétée, m'étant arrêter au beau milieu du chapitre 3.

Les + :
*Les graphiques ont magnifiques.
*La musique colle parfaitement aux décors.
*Les énigmes/interactions sont bien pensées.
*Spot. (^^)

Les - :
*Très peu d'endroits à explorer.
*Une jouabilité pénible. Toujours maintenir la souris pour afficher un menu d'action + un autre clic pour parler/regarder/prendre un objet, cela devient rapidement agacent. Aussi, c'est peut-être que moi, mais parfois le curseur du jeu refusait de me laisser cliquer à des endroits qui sont censés être interactifs.
*Notre protagoniste et sa personnalité. Aussi, il semble se déplace très lentement, comparé à d'autres personnages dans d'autres jeux, comme Deponia.

L'entre-deux :
*Le scénario. Son début m'a fortement accroché et, à partir du chapitre 3, il ne m'intéressait plus.

"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.

I found this to be a very charming point-and-click adventure game. The focus of the story is on a depressive child clown by the name of Sadwick, who departs from his family circus to avert the end of the world from coming to pass.

The story is more of a whimsical one, but the game is not a comedy and does take itself seriously. You get a nice amount of character growth from Sadwick and the course of the story has you meet new and interesting characters in each scene along the way. The amount of depth to each character you meet was pleasantly surprising, and at least a few really made for some happy smile-inducing moments and the German voice acting is quite expressive (see my note below) . The environments are very beautifully drawn and in-game animations are very good too. There are some cutscenes which have less polish, looking maybe more like a 90's cartoon but overall did not detract from the experience for me. The music is quite good, even if some of the tracks are re-used a few too many times.

Game ran just fine, but doesn't alt-tab too well. Saving, mouse controls, the GUI are all perfectly fine. The game has no failstates, and you can hold Spacebar to highlight interactables. This game does have a fair few number of puzzles that are not easy to intuit the solutions for, so you will likely have to resort to a guide more often than you'd like. This is par for the course in adventure games, although the par is a bit high in this game.


I also wanted to address a few complaints I saw a lot in other people's reviews.

Performance : Many users complained of the game failing to launch, launching to a black screen, or crashing. I never once had any such issue. I hope others who do are able to resolve theirs.

Sadwick's walking speed : Some users complained that Sadwick walks too slow. In most adventure games you can double-click on screen transitions to automatically trigger them. You can do that in this game too, so its possible those users did not know. Sadwick walks at a fine pace otherwise, no scene is especially large bar one and even then the transitions in that area are numerous.

Voice acting : I heard that the English dub VA for Sadwick is unbearable and whiny. Given his personality in the game I could see why this might be, so I used the original German voice acting and enjoyed it thoroughly. I have no problems with using the German VA.

Broken audio : Some users comment that audio seems to cut off abruptly at the end of some spoken lines. I cannot comment on the English audio, but this is sometimes noticeable in the German audio. I did not find it common enough nor disruptive enough to say it was any significant detriment, although the developers should fix it if so.

Controls : Some users complain the game fails to register mouse clicks. I never had this happen, but you do have to hold down the mouse button to open the small interaction menu.

Story : Some people just don't like the premise or character personality, or how the game ends. That's fine, its just down to taste. I enjoyed it, others will not.


All in all, I would recommend it. I very much enjoyed myself. About 10-12 hrs playtime.

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.
