"One of my favourite adventure games. Incredibly charming, interesting and challenging. Beware of the horrible voice actor though."

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!).

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.

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!

I recently finished the Deponia series and I love point and click adventures and I was very hesitant to buy this one, I didn't like the look of the characters at all but it was on sale so I decided I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did it's really, really good if you enjoyed the Deponia series as much as I did you'll love this one too.

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.
