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!
