I don't think a game has ever made me feel so conflicted on its value.

I'm not sure I can justify spending money on this game. Even $1 seems like a high asking price. The game has beautiful art, relaxing music, and the writing is amusing or even heartwarming at times. The way the game maintains continuity over a single playthrough is nothing new for video games, but in a "board game" it might lend it a small air of novelty.

But, frankly, there's almost no gameplay. It's pretty much a very short, interactive, multiplayer visual novel. A match will last around 8-10 minutes per player. There are 6 turns, and they amount to picking one of eight locations, then making two binary choices at each of these locations to somewhat randomly gain or lose stat points. These points will affect how successful you are at succeeding the second binary choice each turn, depending on what, precisely, the choice is. With a very small number of art assets and almost no gameplay, the game survives entirely on its writing. At a maximum of 40 minutes per game and low variety per playthrough, you are unfortunately likely to get more value out of riffing on a movie with friends than The Yawhg.

I really want to recommend this game, but its brevity and shallowness just keep me from being able to justify saying anyone should spend money on it. The experience was enjoyable, but there's just not enough there.

The Yawhg's main draw is the art and stories of Emily Carroll. I liked her comics and so bought the game, but was honestly disappointed. The 'game' is nothing more than a collection of Carroll's stories told in a branching narrative fashion. The game functions by having you choose what each character is doing each week but results are unpredictable and seem arbitrary. Each game of The Yawhg is very short, not allowing for any sense of attachment to develop with the characters you're controlling. Ultimately, you're just clicking around to see what pops out next. While I love the artwork and scenarios that occured, I can't help but feel this really should have just been a series of webcomics rather than a video game. Overall it left me wanting.

The kind of tainted fairy-tale spectacle The Yawhg promotes sadly fades all too soon, despite the whimsically strong writing and the playful art that often hints at a slightly darker edge. For all its subtle melancholy and inventive storytelling, there’s only a small window of time when all these things mesh together to create something special. After that, it’s more about rediscovery and rehashing in the futile hopes that relevance can be found by combining the old and worn.

Lack of content is VERY disapointing this game should be no more than $1. Its only good untill you realize how short the game is...IMO where the game ends seems like where the game is just getting started. This game had so much potential its a real shame that they diden't keep updating it or make it ALOT longer....

If you are looking for any kind of serious game play, please leave now. This game is not for you and never will be. It is way too simple, direct, short and shallow when it comes to gameplay. However, if you are going to have a few friends over and have a few drinks, this game may be just the ticket for something to do casually while you hang out. That same short and direct gameplay, simplicity, amount of things that can happen to you and the others before it’s over may be the perfect combination to have a laugh or three while slugging them down. Just be aware some of the events are going to repeat… a lot. For the full review go to http://redsectorshutdown.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-yawhg-pc-review.html
