The Whispered World is a beautiful game that stirs deep emotion and brings a good few laughs along with it, cleverly using satire without overdoing it and creating a depressed character that is 100% likable. Sadwick is amusing, adorable, and superbly written, displaying characteristics of those with depression accurately which allows people to relate to him easily. I have seen rather a few complaints about the voice acting, which personally I thought was brilliant. At no point did I cringe or find it unnatural, and I found that the tone to Sadwick's voice was perfect for his role and his personality. He has asthma, vertigo, depression and anxiety which he either comments on or is obvious throughout the game, giving a wide range of mental instabilities that people can relate to. The backgrounds and soundtrack are absolutely gorgeous, and the artwork you gain for finishing the game are a pleasure to look at and feel like a very worthy reward.
The clicking sometimes doesn't respond and you have to double click or place items in a very specific place, but I found myself wanting to continue the game so much that by a few minutes in I really didn't care about the extra clicking sometimes required and even got used to it. The hotspot indicator is VERY useful in the game and you WILL have to use it in almost every screen, but again I just find the feature useful and it didn't bother me at all.
Daedalic are masters at immersive point and click adventures, and this was just the beginning of their incredible games. Their gift for creating magical stories with interesting and likable characters sparkles in this game, and at the reduced price it is now, it's well worth the money.
