Telling stories around a campfire might seem antiquated, but The Yawhg replaces both the fire and the stories with its own tales of a civilization on the brink of the collapse. You and three friends take roles in the town just a week before ensured destruction. Attend a ball, clean a hospital, or even fight crime. The Yawhg presents imminent danger and allows you to forge a healthy backstory and stat sheet in only a few days. The real treasure is seeing how these actions affect your friends or the town itself. Once the town is overcome with darkness, it's up to you and your friends to triumph or despair with your experiences.

It's a superb bit of storytelling.

The Yawhg is a great story-telling game with a interesting plot, especially for first time players who have no clue as to what the Yawhg is. The game is quite replayble due its multiplul possible endings, based on your decisions, If you enjoy "choose your own adventure" games, then this is definetley for you.

It's pretty short but it has similar feel to "Long Live The Queen", however this game is much more forgiving. You raise your characters stats by picking various tasks to do and choosing from choices in various situations. The game is short and only lasts a few minutes but to see how your life after the Yawhg and do you save/recover the land after the Yawhg makes each playthough exciting. Sometimes the things you do can haunt you or hurt your characters that might not have been connected at all. Doing the little things can have a huge impact positive and negatively.

Supprisingly more interesting than I thought it would be when I got it on humble bundle. It is very simple in gameplay and style, but it leaves me wanting to play more and succesfully finish the game.

Here's how the game works. The Yawhg is a storm that comes in 6 weeks from the start. You are given choices on where to spend a week of time before the Yawhg comes. The characters don't know that it is coming, but you do. In order to survive or rebuild you need to train the characters according to the needs of the town after the Yawhg. It definitely has replayabitiy.

A 10 minute game. No volume control (It starts off LOUD). Can't quit from the main menu, have to go to character select for ESC to do anything. Quitting causes the game to crash. And did I mention it's super boring? Get a couple stat points that don't seem to do anything, then just see if you get a good ending. There is no story. You never see that yawhg, or even interact with it. It goes from "The yawhg is coming" straight into "The yawhg left" without any input from you. You would get more for $10 by buying some TF2 hat. This is the single biggest waste of money on my account.

There are many ways for this game to end. You chooose the fate of the town with the Yawhg approaching. Thats what makes it such a great game. The yawhg is a very fun game to play alone or with friends as you determine your role in the society of your hometown and how you will prepare for the evil Yahwg!

Wow!
First of all the music in this game and the artwork is just spectacular.
I started to play it by myself first and the game is a very introvert experience framed in by the sad but beautiful music.The game is also fun to play with friends, each deciding what to do with their own character. I loved it, to bad its a bit short but what a beautiful and fun ride it is.

I got this game via Humble Bundle and I am pleasently surprised by it. The art is delightful and the music is a perfect match for both the storytelling and the art.

If you play it once you might end up thinking that it's an OK game fun, short and even a bit surprising, but if you play it a second time you'll find out that there is a lot to discover and that your decisions don't always have the same outcomes and that they might ruin or save the day. Unexpectedly addictive.

An entertaining narrative, loses it's charm after a few plays unless you bring new friends to play with you. (It's fun to watch them react to the scenarios.) The art direction is great too, very charming.

First: This game is an RPG, but those wanting a massive RPG that requires 30+ hours running around exploring detailed maps while grinding for levels and hunting for the next plot advancement probably won't be satisfied with "The Yawhg." That's not to say this isn't a good game; it is simply a different type of RPG. This is a short, stat-building, choice based game resulting in multiple outcomes for each charater. Also, the better the outcome of the character or characters (you can play 2-4) the more likely the town will survive after the devestation you know is coming.

The game is only a few rounds, so if you're playing with only one character it is very short, and it can still be beated in under an hour even if you choose to play with (the maximum) four characters. That being said, it has great replay value since it's delightful to go through the game a few more times to find other options and different results stemming from alternate decisions made during your training -- not to mention the final outcomes for characters, which change based off of your choices leading into the end of the game.

Finally, it's worth noting several sitautions and character endings are delightfully grim, which made me happy.

I recommend it, and will toss it to my friends, but I admit I didn't break down to buy it until it was on sale since it is a shorter game and I'm a cheap, horrible person sometimes.
