Шедевр, говоря кратко. Очень красивое оформление и повествование, множество событий, почти все влияют на будущее. Партии достаточно короткие, это даже хорошо, на мой взгляд, можно много попробовать. Единственное, цена высоковата все-таки, лучше ждать скидки и брать тогда, но брать стоит обязательно

I debated for a bit whether or not to recommend the game. I decided to recommend it, but I thought I would leave some information so that others considering purchasing will understand what they are buying.

1) This game is a text-based "Choose Your Own Adventure" game. There is art (and I like the art) and music (and I like the music), but ultimately, it's about the choices you make.

2) The game is very short. It is completed in 6 turns. However, there are a variety of options to choose from. There are different endings, so choose wisely.

3) If you are looking for a more typical "rpg" experience, this is not for you. If you are looking for something fun, rather light, and enjoyable with friends, this is a good game to pick.

4) I recommend purchasing the game on sale. It is just a little too pricey at it's original price in my opinion, but nabbing it on sale is generally a good idea. I got it at a slight discount.

5) The game is turn-by-turn and is certainly not going to eat any significant amount of your time. If you just need something sort of light to play for ten minutes, this is a good game to pick up. If you are looking for a somewhat more serious game purchase, perhaps you should not buy this. I do not have a lot of time logged in at all, but I have already beat the game a few times.

6) The game, even though it is short, does have some replay value.

7) Ahem. Demon baby. That was unexpected. Especially when it stopped being a baby...

Ultimately, I recommend it. Just remember that this is not a typical gaming experience, and gamers who prefer more standard grinding/number crunching/tactics-style games might want to give this a pass. If you're the type of person to be fascinated by choices and options, to see how your choices affect others and endings, then you might like this.

Cute little choose your own storybook. Great music and art. Really good story-generator with stats. Very short, but the genre usually gets bogged down, in my humble opinion.

Well worth a looksy, but you wont be playing for hours except to explore possiblities.

Randomized Stories with humor and sometimes a dark sense. Multiplayer. Beautiful art, visually & rythmically. It's a game you play to unwind from the day, and just chat with your friends.

I played the Yawhg a couple of times, and I must say it is quite an amusing game. It's all pretty straight-forward: you and/or your friends each choose a character (you can also choose characters yourself and play the game on your own) and choose a location you wish to go to. Each location has a couple of options on actions you can perform, such as cutting wood, tending to patients, and yes, even getting drunk! But beware: each choice you make might positively or negatively affect your stats. After a couple of turns, the mysterious Yawhg happens and each person will have to choose a role which fits their character's stats best (or you can do the opposite, and watch the outcome!), after which you'll get to know whether your town survived, and -more importantly- how your characters pick up their life again afterwards.

The Yawhg is a funny little game which you can play with friends. The graphics are all really fitting and nice, the music is simple, yet suits the game and the absolute highlight of the game is the amount of choices you can make, and the randomnized events you'll encounter. However, the game is VERY short. Almost too short. And that, in my humble opinion, is the only thing where it falls short, for me personally. However, the replay value is very big.

Get it during a sale, or if you like experimental choice-heavy little games like this one.

All in all, 7/10

Всем-всем любителям инди - ознакомиться обязательно. Это игра, в которой КАЖДЫЙ шаг имеет значение. И пусть этих шагов игроку дано не так уж много, но тем значительнее последствия выбора. Эта игра безумно проста по механике, при этом разнообразие исходов гораздо шире, чем может показаться при первом запуске.
Понятия не имею, сколько здесь концовок, но на данный момент игра кажется практически бездонной. И это при том, что одно прохождение занимает буквально 5-10 минут.
NB: у To the Moon ушло 4 часа на то, чтобы заставить меня плакать, а у The Yawhg - всего 20 минут. Это рекорд, дамы и господа! Насыщенность повествования, заложенная к каждом коротком прохождении, просто удивляет.
