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 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.

This game has simply awful controls. It makes me miss King's Quest; even the keyboard early versions of 1-4 were better than this junk. I can't just click on a person to talk to him. I have to do some kind of special action that MAY open my inventory instead, which takes up half the screen. Speaking of the inventory, even if I want to interact with items in the world I'd have to move away to get to the said puzzle and by then the inventory box and my hard-fought for item has disappeared.

Clicking on ANYTHING requires space bar and to mouse over EXACTLY the center of the hint circle to open eye/talk/take bar, which then one then has to click with your left mouse button. It takes three actions when it could be just one.

This is a nightmare. I have no way to get past the first three screens right now and no hints as to how to accomplish that piece of work, except maybe finish up the chore list? I have the map already but no luck leaving behind the circus-- Ben just laughs at me if I try. I want to punch him and his smug face looking down on Sadwick, even if Sadwick is irritating himself. Speaking of which, I can't speed up my @#%$^ slow character and his angsty lazy teen voice is super obnoxious.

In conclusion, this was a waste of $5.00 At least Night of the Rabbit was playble and had decent voice acting even if the puzzles were occasionally ridiculous. It was playable enough that I purchased this without looking to see if there was a demo. I'm hoping the other game I bought by this company is more playable than this piece of junk because I just spent $15 on that given the recent Christmas sale.

Are you kidding me?
I have 2 computers, one of which is brand-new and neither of them can even open this game. I've tried the options of the visionaire tool and some forum advice with no luck. This is just unacceptable.
Don't buy it, you seriously deserve more.
Pfff

At least the normal edition works...if you got the chance to buy it when it was available.

Who would expect that a clown would be a hero?

Well, The Whispered World Special Edition puts the player in the shoes of Sadwick, a clown. He's not just any clown. He's a clown with no talents. He's scared and uncertain about what to do with his life. The game goes on to talk about his story and how he "save" his world.

Aside from the story, I like the music and character voices. Sadwick's voice sounds like a person talking with a running nose and has the flu, but it fits with his personality. Furthermore, this is not just a simple point & click game. There are short animation clips that added to the storyline and makes the characters feel real.

However, this Special Edition has problems with mouse clicks and animation & video syncing. For example, when trying to click somewhere on the screen, there are instances where the mouse click would not register. Furthermore, some animation clips had voices that did not match the video animations. Besides these few mishaps, The Whispered World Special Edition is a fun and short little game!

The story line is beautiful and the game is very fun to play. Watch out for every little detail though or you will be stuck for quite some time. The minigames are enjoyable. Overall, I really enjoyed this game.

I played this game in January 2015, and encountered none of the problems reported by the earlier reviewers. I don't know whether they have been patched or not, but my experience leads me to believe it has. Also, like many games from Daedalic, if you press space bar any clickable items in the area will be highlighted.

Overall, I recommend this game (on sale) to someone who has already played some of Daedalic's other adventure games (Deponia, Memoria, Eye of Satinav) and just wants to scratch that itch.

The protaganist of this game is like a depressed, not-as-arrogant version of Rufus from this company's Deponia series. This game is one of their earlier games, and it shows in some decisions. For example, in order to interact with anything, you must first click on the object for 1/2 second, which brings up the icon interaction wheel (eye/hand/mouth) THEN you click the icon, then the action occurs. Every single time. In a point and click game. The voice acting isn't terrible, but it did not motivate me to have the sound on while playing either. There were some interesting visuals and puzzles (spot parkour!).

Buggy. I didn't think it was important to save -- then got to a location in chapter 3 where I needed to find something in a room and then randomly, I can no longer bring up the escape menu, the interaction menu, or my side-kick's menu. I am literally stuck without a save. If I knew how to alter the autosave file, maybe I could fix it, but all the values make no sense to me.

I'm sad to say I can't really recommend this game. It is kind of buggy as other reviewers have pointed out but that wasn't my main problem with it. It's just so, so slow. The character walks everywhere at a snail's pace, the controls are awkward, and the puzzles are unintuitive.

I wanted to like it, the animations are very nice and charming, but the voice acting is terrible. The main character especially is very annoying when we're supposed to find him a lovable failure. Mostly the game is just boring, and I say that as a person who usually loves point and click adventure games. I got almost to the end when it became so tedious I had to quit. I thought I might go to youtube to watch the end but I found I couldn't even care enough to do that.

Nope, screw this game.

I wanted to like it. I did like it. But it black-screens on startup everytime and I have to play around with fullscreen and windowed mode until it finally works. Crashes all the time for other people (although I didn't experience this myself).

Icing on the cake was when I just got stuck. Not stuck on puzzles, although those are annoying in themselves because of having the stupid pet caterpillar that you just have to guess where you can maybe use him even if it doesn't make sense.

Stuck as in I couldn't move. At all. Couldn't click on and interact with any of the objects in the world and move from where I was. And for a game with no autosaves, that is just ♥♥♥♥ing annoying. Forces you to have to restart the entire game because there is nothing you can do about it, and no support from the developers on fixing any of these problems. And I don't mean exiting and reloading a save. Completely starting over because loading doesn't unstick you.

Screw this game, it is too frustrating dealing with the bugs for a game that has terrible voices and is a mediocre point and click at best.

I got about 6 minutes into the game and decided I couldn't stand the main characters voice. The point and click aspect was also more cumbersome than other daedelic games.

I really like Graphic Adventure Games, but Whispered World is just not worth playing.

PROS

  • Beautiful backgrounds.
  • Nice soundtrack.

CONS

  • The Special Edition doesn't work on my PC. Had to play the normal one.
  • There is no wide screen option. (unbelievable for a 2010 released game)
  • Main character's voice acting is pretty annoying and dumb.
  • Nonsense solutions for some crazy puzzles.
  • Poor story with a lame ending.
  • Third rate animations and cutscenes.
  • Graphic errors and glitchs in the last chapter.

If you want to play a good graphic adventure, avoid this game and try old Lucasarts point-and-click adventure games.

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.

The Whispered World falls into the realm of zany adventure games, complete with a morose, unlovable schlub for a protagonist. Unfortunately, zany and surreal adventures invariably involve a certain amount of "try everything on everything" to progress, and this runs afoul of the crappy interface.

Frequently, The Whispered World fails to register a mouse click, so you never know, when trying an object on another, or an object on part of the environment, if it truly did nothing, or if the game simply didn't notice your attempt. Sometimes it takes four or five clicks to get the game to respond. After the third time that I gave up on a puzzle, checked a walkthrough, and discovered that the correct solution was, in fact, one of the first things I had tried, except that the game hadn't deigned to notice at the time, I gave the whole thing up as a bad exercise in frustration.

If you're masochistic enough to endure this game, make a point of clicking several times when trying anything; hopefully one of the clicks will register. The art, incidentally, is quite beautiful, it's simply a shame what aggravating hoops you must jump through to see it.

(And, yes, my mouse works fine in all other applications, so I feel confident blaming the game engine for this non-responsiveness.)

I have such mixed feelings about this game that I'm hard pressed on whether or not to recommend it.

To start off with, the artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS and features traditionally animated cutscenes. The music is quite nice as well, though the voice acting is hit and miss. The characters themselves are quite vibrant and full of personality - we follow the journey of our would-be hero Sadwick, a down-on-his-luck circus clown with clinical depression, who discovers that he has been fated to... destroy the world. As you can imagine he rejects this prophesy, determined to instead save his world from crumbling to dust. Initially I found Sadwick's character to be annoying with how whiney he was about everything, but as I followed him and got to know him, I started to relate to his depression more and saw much of myself reflected in him. He really just needs a hug. As for the puzzles, they're fairly difficult and often frustrating and illogical. More than once I had to look up a guide.

UNfortunately, despite how gorgeous this game is and how interesting I'd found the story, the direction the ending wound up taking I felt to be such a massive cop-out that I'm actually pretty angry. In retrospect it was pretty obvious, but it was such an extremely lazy and unimaginitive "plot twist" that it pretty much destroyed the rest of the game's magic. So, while everything else about the game is good and I would recommend it based off of that, the ending is just SO unsatisfying that I feel extremely conflicted to say yes.

If you truly want this game, wait and get it on sale. Don't waste your money paying full price just to be slapped by the ending.
