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.)

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.

The Yawhg has excellent writing, interesting mechanics, an incredibly low barrier to entry, and the art is gorgeous!

This title really shines with multiple players and despite technically only featuring local coop, it works nicely over live stream or any video conference software with screen share. Each playthrough will be short but multiple playthroughs are rewarding because there is actually a lot to see here. There are unexpected interactions and numerous choices to make that really do change the outcome. The Yawhg very much encourages the players to see what happens instead of simply trying to win by making the correct decisions. Playing the game is creating the story, which might not be for everyone, but there is a lot here to play with here!

Short, but with many different choices to explore, as well as the ability for friends to participate. The art is fun, and the story events are creative. The Climax is a bit underwhelming. Ends well, though.

Not much else to say. It's a "Choose-Your-Own" Adventure (with nice illustrations). There is no test of skill, you just interact with a plot, and watch it react. Which it does well.

I give it 2 Chains out of 50 Cent.

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.

It's a nice game; the art is pretty, the soundtrack is pleasant, and the story is amusing. My only complain is that it is too short.

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.

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.

I recommend this game, but not without some reservations. It is a really neat project, but in its current form is really more of a proof of concept than a fully fleshed-out game. It it super short and lacks the depth that this format could offer. Definitely do not buy it unless it is deeply discounted, or you will probably be resentful.

Also, be sure you play it with a friend. Playing this game in single player is like doing mad libs by yourself. It's just not nearly as fun or as funny as when you do it with someone else.

If you need something with local multiplayer that non-gamers can enjoy, this story based-choose your adventure game is great. It is as entertaining as it is approachable. The only criticism I have is that after a dozen or so play throughs you will have likely seen every scenario, and thus the game loses its luster quickly.

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.

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.

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.

It's a great game, especially for that time when you have 4 friends and only 3 controllers. However after a few playthroughs many of the events are quite repetitive, but the endings have always been different and are a joy to read. Overall fantastic storyline, no bugs so far, and the art is great. Could the developers occasionally add new content? Because that would really get 5 stars from me if I knew every time I played, There might be a slightly different ending....

It's like an RPGish board game thing but on a computer so it's way easier to play. The writing is really interesting 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).
