Look, this game is not fun to sit and play alone. It's probably not all that fun to sit around and play sober. But if you have a group of friends who won't mind reading the prompts out loud while drinking a few beers, I'm not totally sure you can have a better end-of-the-night experience. We were/are far too old to play this until 4 a.m. while screaming the words out in accents, but sometimes... you just have to ♥♥♥♥ing Yawhg.

Provided about 15 minutes of entertainment, more as a curiosity than anything else. Visual novels are really not my thing, and this game was essentially just picking from a bunch of menus for 10 minutes to see what random stuff happened. I was glad it ended so quickly, else I might have wondered if the content was just an intro to a much better game.

Some people have mentioned that it might be good as a party game, and I hadn't really considered that, but either way it's not worth the £6.99 it's currently available for.

You have 6 weeks to build up your characters for the arrival of The Yawg, then you will have to pick a role for your characters that will best help the city. Everthing about this game is stunning. The concept is simple but very enjoyable and the music is simply amazing. This is a great game to play with friends, but can easily be enjoyed on your own.

Short and fun, play with friends for hilarious outcomes. Art and music is great, although the latter is a bit repetitive, the dialogue can be funny sometimes, but can also be dark due to some of the choices you make. The price could be a bit lower, even with the replay value, though I kind of got tired playing it alone due to witnessing all of the events that could happen.

This is a great game with many hours of fun included.
I fisrt played this game with my friends and i loved it. It has hundreds of unique outcomes and a great story.
Although this game is much better when playing with other, it\'s just as fun to play by yourself

Got this game during the humble bundle and finally got around to finally playing it.
Overall fun game...



PROS:
Amazing artwork,
interesting to see how badly you did or how well you did at the end.

Cons:
Highly repetitive after the third attempt with friends
during each event you can pick out what happens based on the story. answering the 2 do this or that, you can see what happens. Once that\'s done you can just pick what stats you want to increase based on the options after doing it a couple of times.

The Yawhg is reminiscent of old choose your own adventure games that's visually appealing. Best played with imaginative friends who like to inject some role-playing into their characters to enrich the experience.

The game is extremely easy to get into and is all about making choices which sometimes lead to unexpected results. The story is left to some interpretation, the visuals are unique and pleasing coupled with ambient music that sets a whimsical, relaxing environment.

If you're looking for something light, somewhat random and quirky to kill a couple of hours, this would be a nice game to introduce to non-gamers. The Yawhg however, is quite short, simplistic and with consecutive multiple playthroughs to unlock all the endings, it becomes repetitive, thus I'd suggest only buying it when there's a sale going on.

The Yawn: Pretty art meets... seemingly random gameplay. Interesting from the perspective of what passes for a game these days, as there isn't much in the way of animation. Everything feels like a menu. Albeit a very pretty menu. Might be okay for a casual time killer for like an hour or two, before the "Echantment" of the sorta-cute sorta-clip art-esque art wears off.

Tenete a mente che per godere a pieno di questo gioco dovete giocarci con 2 o 3 amici sullo stesso pc. Detto questo, il gioco può essere favoloso. E' un gioco basato sulle scelte. Le scelte che farete avranno delle conseguenze sulle vostre abilità e anche sugli eventi degli altri giocatori. Dovrete cercare di collaborare per riuscire a salvare la città.

Perciò il gioco enfatizza le scelte fatte per il bene di tutti, più che per quello personale. BUT IN THE END....

Provatelo, davvero bello.

I don't know.
Surely this game has a lot of choices, but sometimes you take them randomly, and a singe choice may have the power to be the only significant event to determine the finale of a character.
I played it once, I will play it again but with not so much will to do it.
Payed 4,49, I think the game is not worth the price.

The Yawhg is absolutely beautiful for what it is, and it's a lot of fun, however, I really can't recommend it. It feels like a demo, or the introduction to a larger game. The entire game plays out like the character creation for a game that never happens. You spend six weeks making decisions that shape and define your character, each one including a small flavor text choice that lets you deepen your character choices, and then, when it feels like the game should be starting for real, all you do is pick a profession and see how good your character is at that profession.

I wanted to be a part of this world, I wanted to take my character out, to play a game with them. Who doesn't want that? This game is maybe worth a dollar. I wont say that I feel cheated, because I truly savor and enjoy the narrative, and the very novelty of a cooperative choose your own adventure experience was just enough to make me feel like at least I had gotten something interesting and beautiful, if lacking, but I would not recommend this for every gamer.

Be very aware, this game is extremely content light, and there is no campaign. Once your character is created after six weeks of character creation choices, that's the end of it. I really crave more, and am very disappointed in how little is here.

For a more comprehensive review, please see my write-up at http://criticalindiegamer.com/2014/02/the-yawhg-review-pc/

What can I say? It is very, very good, but also a brief experience. With a few friends the tales you weave will cause fits of raucous laughter, but they will be short-lived. A play-through takes around 10-30 minutes, and the end phase offers no real-resolution.

A folk music style soundtrack interweaves the basic, but charming presentation of the game. Both are lovely, and compliment one another well.

The Yawhg puts me in a tough place because I really enjoyed it, but I question its worth at $10. I don't usually draw comparisons between price and longevity, but if I paid $10 I can't help thinking I would feel a little let down. There are multiple play-throughs here, but even by the second play you will be seeing the same situations again.

Buy it if you are looking for a fun, memorable experience to play with your friends, and don't mind the longevity issues.

What a great game. A few beers, sit around and yell about how magnificent you are. And it goes fast, so even better for drinking. What I'm trying to say is, this game is gorgeous, it sounds great, and it gets me drunk. Really good and drunk.

10/10, would drink again.

Playtime and Time/money
After playing through the game 3 times with a friend at a moderately slow place we pretty much exhausted the game of unique encounters within 3 hours, however, this being said. I really enjoyed what time I was playing the game.

I can't say you should buy this game for only one reason, and that is that the game is too short for the few bucks you'll be spending on it.

Exactly what is this game?
The choose your own adventure game has about 100-200 encounters, (and yes I looked in the game files for this number range) However being that you can hit about 20 per character it's not extremely hard to start seeing repeats in playthrough two. Along with that though I give the game credit where it's due, the game has a very open file system where you can modify... the whole game. Not only can you modify it, but so can anyone else, if you look on the discussions I'm sure you can find a player made extension or a whole 'nother story, which is great! that looks to be more play time added on to this game. Final note on the game itself, it is a LOCAL Co-Op/single player game, however me and my friend used Teamviewer (http://www.teamviewer.com a free screen sharer, that's easy to use) and we played the game as if we were both in the same room.

;-; #forever alone #Screw that I don't want people in my house.

Overall yeah you should get this game if you can nab it on sale or if you can get it in a bundle, I can personally only recommend playing this with a friend, so be sure to grab 2 (or a DRM free copy)
.... not saying that there are any maybe in the humble bundle...


So now the standard game rating:
  • Story: 10/10 (Enjoyable, Fun, Ridiculous, everything a good sit-down-and-play game should be)
  • Gameplay: 3/10 (I can't give good marks here for a game that uses only U/D/L/R/Enter, but it passes by my personal standards.)
  • Presentation: 9/10 (The game has a nice art style and feel about it.)
  • Soundtrack: 7/10 (I'M SORRY WHAT WAS THAT?! I had to turn mine down to 4% just to hear my friend, no in game slider, and doesnt save sound settings after closing. Other than that it's fine, fitting music.)
  • Replayability: 10/10 (I'm just waiting for that free content DLC that was mentioned in a thread somewhere, that or I'll go and download someone elses.)

If we follow Sid Meier’s definition of a game as “a series of meaningful choices”, then The Yawhg is indeed the gamiest of all the games. It is all about the choices you make. Still, there might be people out there who will think that there’s not enough, uh, game in this game.

In the end it doesn’t really matter though, I have no problem whatsoever with thinking of this as a “mood piece”. I enjoyed it immensely. Sometimes it is rather straightforward, sometimes it is deliciously dark and twisted. It is an astonishing, unique thing and I am very glad that it is out there.

I really want to be able to recommend this game, but...it just doesn't feel like a complete game. It's short. I have, what, nearly three hours of playtime on record? I think I've played 20 or so games in that time. You have 2-4 characters, there are six turns, and for every turn, you decide what stats your character will improve. At the end of the six turns, every character picks a profession and then you see if you managed to rebuild or not after the Yawhg leaves.

Pros:
- Absolutely beautiful
- Great music
- Two male characters, two female characters, always a plus
- Great for when you have a little time to kill
- Most weeks you'll have an "event" happen to you, anything from deciding whether to pick up a rusted dagger to dancing with a dryad to giving sex tips to the king. These were cool (at least, the first few times...).

Cons:
- Repetitive. The events that pop up during the week are the same thing over and over and over and OVER and unless you happen to have the exact right stats, the results of whatever you choose don't realy differ.
- Only three endings. The good, the bad, the ambiguous.
- Absoutely not even remotely worth $10. It's worth like $1.
- There's just not much gameplay or variation, and that means there's not much reason to play this beyond a few hours time total.
