I didn't expect much from AR-K, until i played it.
Turned out to be a surprisingly well made point & click adventure, true to classics we all love.

+spot-on art style
+intriguing story
+lovely protagonist voice acting
+Sam'n'Max´ish / Larry´esque music score
+humor cracked me up 5 times in 45 minutes
+riddles made me read 2 guides in 60 minutes

-Scripting is a little rough around the edges*
*which judging from reviews and forum posts, i´m sure the devs are willing & able to iron out asap


I (roughly) remember the same things from games like Monkey Island or Indiana Jones :D

the game has an okay story - has some jokes, at some points abit pervy or deep thinking but other then that it is interesting.
There will be 4 episodes in total they say.
It is a point and click, puzzle game with a story. You play as a lady and she has a dog that accompany her.
The graphics are fine btu sometimes the animation is weird and not working correctly (like walking animation or talking).
She always walks, she walks very slow, getting to point a to B will at least take 10-15 seconds. It would have been better if there is some teleporting like in other games. Walking animation is just weird..
You do can skip cut scenes, sometimes the game is a bit buggy. but do-able.

If you get this game in a discount or sale, it would be worth while, if you are interested in point and click games + story, this could be your thing.

Ill rate this 7/10

Enjoyable point and click adventure game full of humor.
Similar to the old Monkey Island games.

I really enjoyed playing the game and can't wait for the next episodes,
Audio and visuals fit together very well and has a good storyline.

Excellent game and well worth the Crowdfunding and Steam Greenlight to get it going.

I like the resurgence of quest genre, and the game is one of.

The game is quit simple. I mean, there are only simple activities which can be solved via mouse-brute-force. Likewise, the content is not so big, maybe 10-20% of one Space Quest V, and without little puzzles. Developers go on with the content (here are only 2 episodes, and they're going to add 2 more).

The story is intrigued (I like it). The ambience and style definetely is for teenagers, and style is quite strict and you can feel the uniquness of the game and joy.

I'm looking forward to the next two episodes. I hope that they will be enriched.

If you remember good old quests, you should like it.

Every game has it's flaws; well, most of them do anyway. This game definitely isn't an exception. The big one is this: some of these puzzles are just not at all intuitive; and if you absolutely refuse to use any guide then you might end up walking away from the game in frustration. I'd definitely wish the game was a little better about the puzzles' being intuitive.

In episode 1, it's that clues are really vague and don't really tell you what you need to know... In episode two, some of the puzzle solutions are even less intuitive, but the developer thought it could solve that by adding a narrator. You can ask the narrator to comment on quests or items, but in some cases he'll have nothing to say and in others it kind of remains vague. What's worse though; "asking the narrator" takes you out of the flow of the game, it's not fun and it's the wrong solution for the problem of the first episode.

So, that's the big problem with this game... But despite that I still recommend it. Why? Well, the game has a ton of "charm". I really like the visual style, the voice actors/actresses are good, the game has a really good sense of humor, the characters are fun and all different, it has funny references and the short videos are well placed, humorous and don't take too long.

Heck, you know what? In a lot of aspects, this game reminds me of Day of the Tentacle. If you're not familiar with that game, it's one of the best classic games in this genre. The fact that this game (AR-K) reminds me of DOTT I think is indicative of the great atmosphere this game creates with it's scenes and characters.

I might not recommend this game if it were an expensive game; but let's be honest. The game is cheap enough that, even if you don't like it, it doesn't hurt the wallet too much. Personally though? I really enjoyed / enjoy this game (am currently playing through episode 3).
