The Yawhg is a seemingly quick game with not much to do on the surface, but first glances of this game would be wrong.

With a wonderful aesthetic, beautiful music and images, and a strong if loose narrative, The Yawhg is a beautiful and refreshing game you can pick up for 10-20 minutes at a time.

The characters do not have much of a personality on their own, instead you sort of put your own will upon them and their options and events open to them change depending on their stats and previous choices. Saying that, you can end up with vastly different characterizations even using the same two people over and over again. The game supports up to 4 characters working in the world at once, and can in fact even be treated as a hotseat multiplayer game.

The choices and tasks you do in the game have deep and lasting effects, completely changing which avenues are open to you while keeping all avenues of adventure open. The Yawhg presents a rich and satisfying game, beautiful in looks and story. Filled with melancholy and whimsy the Yawhg is suitable for anyone looking for a good time.

The Yawhg is a fun game you can play by yourself, but the true fun of the game comes from playing it with friends. Playing by yourself you'll likely have encountered every possible scenario, or at least have a good idea of what you need to do to get whichever ending you want, after a couple quick playthroughs. That's where friends come in. Friends add a layer of challenge to the game, because you can be assured that friends will be the ones to trample all your hopes and dreams of getting a good ending. Sometimes you can get everyone to work together and other times there'll be that one ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ friend who just wants to do everything in their power to try and make sure everything goes down in flames. Friends are the random variables that make The Yawhg fun and increase the play time of the game.
A single playthrough normally doesn't take too long, but again that all depends on how much time you spend talking over the decisions you need to make and laughing (or crying) over the results you reap from said decisions.
Overall for a $10 game it has a lot of playability (if you play with friends). It also doesn't hurt that the game has beautiful graphics and music.

This is a good game, and a great party game if you have 2 or more players (best with 4) There are a lot of people who play "The Yawhg" a few times through and say that it is pretty monotonous. My statement to them is that they are probably monotonous in their play style. If you play this game trying to maximize your character, it turns into a boring game quickly. This is a game for adventurousness and sometimes crazy play styles will actually make a much more successful and interesting ending. Those who played the game through 3 times are judging a game almost by the tutorial. You need to play quite a few times to see some of the interesting random occurances play out that make the game really fun.

I was apparently terrible at being a mage and ended up burning all my hair off at a party. Complete laughingstock. But then I became a werewolf, a crime-fighter, and a gladiator, rebuilt the town after the Yawhg wrecked the place, and ended up becoming a friendly lumberjack.

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay.

Next, I became a powerful mage who could level buildings with a word and conjure magnificent supplies ot rebuild the town.

But that couldn't save me the heartache of losing contact with a dear friend.

The Yawhg is one of the best games I played in 2014. It's a rather simple game, on it's face- you have between two and four characters. They have stats. You take them places to do stuff. Stuff raises or lowers their stats. There are eight locations to visit, and two things to do at each location. There are also scripted(but randomly chosen) events that may or may not happen at each place. For example, if you play Mr. Moss and go to the Arena and fight, you may encounter an ex-girlfriend who is dating one of the new fighters. If you handle the situation well, you get a boost in mind and charm. Every event is written impressively well (with a few minor typos here and there) and illustrated really well.

It's very easy to want to just dive in, play all four characters, and experience everything in a single run. I've done that twice nown and each time I feel like I missed out something. I recommend if you truly want to experience this game, play two characters at a time and really take your time with it. Contemplate your decisions, from both stat-centric and a roleplay-centric points of view.

In general, I highly recommend it. It's rare to me that a game shines in every aspect- concept, design, execution. 9.5/10. would buy again.

This is a petite cup of coffee. While the guitar strums and vocals intrigue, four characters prepare and live their lives to the end. The mechanics while intuitive, do not insult and the esthetics entertain - each time. Had my first 'cup' in 15 minutes - liked it so much I had to have another. Dark and a touch bitter.

This is a fun short game with HUGE replay value. Ive played it 4 times now to try and see different endings and different events and to see what event choice works out better. If you like turn based games where you really have to think and make well thought out choices this game is for you. Everything has a consiquence in this game and it can make or break the ending you will recieve. I still havent good a 'happy' ending but you bettter believe ill keep trying! I got this game when it was 50% off as id heard the youtuber prescriptionpixel talk about how good this game was and it was easily worth every cent of those $5. Whether this worth $10 i think comes down to what types of games you enjoy. Like I said you will get a lot of replyability out of this game but you may not like to play it that many times. But i do highley recomend it!
The artwork and music is also amazing, I need to find the song for the title screen its beautiful.

A very fun little game, get a group of you together via local play or even stream it via Steam and play like that.

Quite a few play throughs for such a small price. If you can get a group of people together (or even just 1 friend) this is a fun story game. I played it with 2 other friends over skype with one person "running" the game. Since it is so simple it was an easy enough work around to the "couch co-op" only problem. I had so much fun I had to buy it for myself.

Although it's short and contains a limited number of events, The Yawhg is still a great game. Its writing and art are both excellent, and seeing how your actions impact your characters and the game's ending is fun. It's a fine game to play in short sittings, and takes on new dimensions when played with friends, as your actions affect both your own experience and theirs. For its low price, it's hard not to recommend this game.

It's like an RPGish board game thing but on a computer so it's way easier to play. The writing is clever and funny, and the art is really pretty!

Also a small detail that I really like: it lets some people share controllers in case you don't have four controllers (all turn-based games should do this).

The music, the art, the sense of story, the beat, flow, experimentation, and playfulness of this game all amount to a roleplaying experience that is wholly unique. I only wish all my characters could anticipate and prepare for the return of a nightmare monster of unknown proportions by doing nothing but drinking. Alas, the game is not perfect.

This is sold as a rich Choose Your Own Adventure style game, like King of Dragon Pass. It's actually a very short raising sim where you have six turns to beef up your characters (don't stress about which characters to pick - they're functionally identical, *ONLY* their art is different) before a mysterious disaster affects the city. Before playing, I somehow had the idea that the Yawhg disaster was different every playthrough. It's not! It's always the same, you can't protect anyone from it, and (despite all the other weird magic stuff in the game) it's actually really boring. After the disaster is over, you choose your new post-Yawhg career and succeed or fail (to varying degrees) based on your stat points and sometimes the special events you experienced. (Note that the careers don't actually have stat requirements to be selected, because programming in a "Given that you have literally zero Charm, the other survivors laugh at your suggestion that you should be the leader" message would have been too much work).

A single playthrough lasts about 10-15 minutes. You can play again and get new events and endings, but I started seeing repeats as early as my second playthrough, so no thanks.

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.
