“It’s hard to find an honest fault in Nearwood. The graphics are amazing, the puzzles are tightly constructed and logical, mini-games are creative and challenging, and there are enough extras to keep you entertained for hours.”

Дошел до самого конца. Нужно получить убер-посох открыв хранилище. Последнего элемента нигде нет, а подсказка говорит "Здесь нет ничего интересного". Игра стала просто непроходимой. Впустую потрачены 2 часа. Сама игра неплохая, да и рисовка очень красивая, но играть ее впустую тоже нет смысла.

One of the better Hidden Object games. Lots of content, some good puzzles, and an immersive fantasy atmosphere, which is important to get you invested.
Definitely recommended.

It's a beautiful game, and worth the price for that alone. Great point and click game (very few hidden object scenes, despite what the tags say) when you want to just relax and enjoy the art.

I just spent the last six hours in Nearwood. The graphics were fantastic especially on my flat screen tv.

I really liked the opening flyby! Twas kinda freaky going up a waterfall and then going down a waterfall on the other side of the mountain ... got me wondering about how the water changed direction lol. I like it so much I watched it several times ... the dinosaur skeletons were a great touch. As for the game itself the graphics were great and the music fantastic.

As for the storyline I found it interesing and liked the different creatures. I've played a multitude of this type of game and have to say some of the puzzles were quite unique. It's not the best of the genre that I've played but I'd still give it a high 4++/5 ... would like to see more from the creators of Nearwood .. perhaps even a sequel (smile)

If you are looking for a true hidden object game keep looking. Yes there are hidden objects to find but you are finding shapes not really items. And what hidden object puzzles there are, are few and far between. (sorry for the cliche). On the postive side what H.O,s there are, are fair. They use no tricks like turning off the lights or giving you a time clock. And the object are usually well placed and not obscured. I played on HO game where the object was 75% covered by anohter object.

However, this is a beautiful game to look at and play. The music is good. The voice acting is better than normal and they have some nice NON-hidden object puzzles thrown into the game. In particular the last puzzle in the bonus game has, believe it or not, a boss fight. Of the puzzle variety. The main game's story is okay as long as you don't ponder its ramifications.

Bottom line, a great game to play between or during your hardcore games.

Adventure/Hidden Object game.

+ The art looks really good
* The story is pretty standard HOG stuff
* The HO scenes are not the standard "here's a lit of items to find" but instead you're looking for pieces of one item. I'd prefer the former but whatever.
- Artifex probably spoiled me, but the quick travel having to recharge after each use was frustrating. But hey, at least it does have a quick travel.

I play a lot of these hidden puzzle games. I feel like this one was one of the most unique when it comes to how its hidden puzzles and the story are presented. The colors are vibrant, it's a fantasy tale, and I encountered no bugs.

One of the best HOG on Steam. Pretty natural landscapes and adorable fuzzy creatures make this game somewhat too cutesy at times, but overall a very enjoyable, casual experience. Bonus points for the spectacular start-screen animation.

Short version: 75%
It’s hard to find any other fragmented hidden object game that looks better than Nearwood, but the gameplay and plot has serious design flaws.

Long version:
On the surface Nearwood looks like the poster child of fragmented object games. The excellent voice acting and the highly detailed, absolutely stunning painted graphics all promise to enchant you as soon as you hit the Play button. Sadly this beauty is skin deep.

The story is as stock as it gets: you arrive in a clichéd fairy land tortured by a clichéd zero-dimensional evil to find a clichéd relic which can deal with this menace. Same in the bonus chapter with an added cartoonish over-the-top villain monologue.

The puzzles and fragmented object scenes offer a great variety both in types and difficulty, but there are a few questionable design choices. For example the fast travel option needs to be recharged, making the map useless; and the final (match-three) puzzle is actually based on sheer luck with the promise of many retries.

Still, Nearwood is an astonishingly gorgeous game that is worth to be played just for the looks alone. Just don’t expect much more from it.

If you like the HOG genre, you'll enjoy this game - if you also love heavy fantasy and dreamlike visuals, you will LOVE this game.

Nearwood is definitely a cut above the average on many levels with it's excellent voice acting (voice acting alone can be uncommon), stunning graphics, pleasant music, and well-designed map/hint system. The HOGs had a really nice amount of variety, themed goals, and beautiful art. No cut-and-clip photos here! The other puzzles ran a nice gamut of difficulties, and this game went for the gusto with having actual 'boss battle' puzzles!

If I was to have any complaint, it would be on how they animated faces for this. It worked overall, but there'd be moments when characters would look downright uncanny or unintentionally creepy. I think it would have worked better if instead of mapping a whole face over a 3d model, they had 'layered' the portions of the face to come up with a more woodcut or conventional sort of animation. As it is the faces do distort weirdly a time or two.

But that's just one nitpick about an otherwise utterly gorgeous game. This is well worth the cost - happy hunting!

One of the best HOGs that I've ever played (and I played A LOT of HOGs), with stunning graphics and good minigames. Ironically the Hidden Object scenes are few and simple but the rest of the game makes up for it, even if it's short (4 hours at the highest difficulty). After the main story there's an extra playable chapter and some nice bonus tracks and wallpapers. Interesting character design (some monsters look just like Totoro!) and very detailed backgrounds.

I played through this game twice, once for story and once for completion.

It is not actually a HOG in the traditional sense; it is an extremely casual point-and-click adventure that happens to mix in a handful of HOG-like elements.

Gameplay consists of:
1. Object-based puzzles (find an object, then use it where it's needed).
2. Mini-games that utilize rotating discs, matching, pattern recognition, mazes, and other simple challenges.
3. FROG puzzles (fractured object I-spy puzzles).
4. Recipes (combine several components together to create a new item).
5. A global I-spy puzzle that requires you to spot 111 "Snoop-see" creatures across both the main game and bonus mission in order to unlock pages of a book.

This game did several things right. The artwork is beautiful (almost Jim Henson-esque), the mini-games are fresh and creative, the adventure puzzles are intuitive, the music and voice-acting are decent, and the FROG puzzles are challenging but not frustrating.

It is a good gateway game for those new to the genre. They do a great job of providing constructive feedback to players, and they include both a hint system and a complete walkthrough (including Snoop-see locations) for anyone who is struggling. Additionally, on easier difficulties, the game map shows points of interest, and allows you to teleport to any screen. As an extra little bone to players, the pages unlocked by the Snoop-see hunt provide visual clues to the game's puzzle solutions.

I would have liked them to have a stronger story hook, and to use the dialogue more effectively (the start of the game is especially slogged down with cutscenes). I also would have liked a bit more variety in the object-based puzzles; you can only collect so many keys, handles, triangles, and seals before it starts to feel repetitious.

Another thing that bugged me was the need for precision when using objects. If you don't interact with the right hot spot, the puzzle will not recognize the required solution.

One special note: players who are colour-blind will have difficulty with the mini-games, as many of them require colour recognition to solve. This is a major concern because the mini-games are a rather large component of the gameplay.

Overall, I would give this game a 7/10. It was more child-like than I expected, and there weren't really any true HOG puzzles, but the art was pretty and the mini-games were fun. It is a decent casual game to waste a few hours with, although I wish I had earned a few steam playing cards or achievements for playing.

This game is a series of puzzles ranging from simple to MENSA level mind breakingly challenging. With such excellent visuals no puzzle gaming fan should be dissuaded by this. There is a guide to help if you get stuck, or just skip the puzzle. The only puzzle that seemed to be guesswork was the seasons puzzle shown in the screenshot, there is a shoe, and an umbrella, I guess those are only needed during certain seasons?
(For summer, the shoe coulda been a flip-flop. While for Fall, the umbrella coulda been anything like a pile of leaves. What is that umbrella even for in the fall?)

While solving puzzles be on the look out for little creatures that tell their own bonus story in the snoopedia of the hard life of living in a fantasy paradise. We need more games on this level of awesome, to appeal to the masses those puzzles need to be toned down to more human levels outside the realm of needing to be an Einstein. Noone wants to bring shame and dishonor upon their family by resorting to the use of the *gulp* skip button on a clever puzzle.

Loses one point because you cant replay the game with the same profile, you have to delete your profile or create a new one to play it again losing your snoopedia progress. Don't know what a snoopedia is? Then you havent even lived!

Rating: 9/10 Value: $9.99

Now before I begin this, I want you to know that I've played around 20 hidden object games in the last couple months so I am well versed in this genre.

Nearwood blew me away. It is one of the most visually stunning hidden object games out there. I was excited everytime I accessed a new area - every scene is beautiful. The characters and creatures look great. Some of the animals are the cutest I've seen. Voice acting is better than average for this genre. The music is lovely AND you have access to all the songs since this is the collector's edition. The puzzles range from very easy to "ack, this is hurting my brain" but you can skip any of them, if you so desire. The length of Nearwood, especially with the bonus game, is longer than most hidden object games. And there is a very cool "boss battle" that most puzzle games lack. I do have to warn you, the hidden object aspect of the game is limited and when you hit them, you're only searching for specific item parts. However, the game is SO good that the lack of "normal" hidden object areas didn't bother me in the least. I really could go on and on about how much I enjoyed playing this. I'll just finish with - I highly recommend it. :)

i really enjoyed this game. it is a favoriite in my household. we enjoy it a lot.
i'd give it a 8/10 (if they fix the glitches maybe a 10/10)

Pros:
it has many other games/puzzles in it besides the story's "hidden object" challanges, beauiful music (includes OST for download), wallpapers, concept art, and the graphics are divine (very bright and festive).

Cons:
voice acting...is...over the top sometimes. some of the puzzles make 0 sense and glitch often on certain ones (thank God for the SKIP option played on casual mode). there is a major LAG towards the end of the Bonus Game (which is a SHORT sequal btw)...that is a bit of a let down too.
the story is lacking in some departments but this is not an epic hardcore rpg either. this is a casual point and click hidden object game. (with prettier graphics and fantastic soundtrack.)

if you're into this type of game then by all means buy it :D but if you're looking for something in higher standards i'd say still give it a go but wait for it to go on sale.

i'm glad i bought this game. ive beaten it twice already. it never gets old. takes about 3hrs to beat (depending on your personal play speed).

This game has tremendous vizuals. After years of playing shooters and games with blood and guts, I wanted something lighter and immersive in a different manner. This. Is. It. It can be a bit cheesy but it's damn cute, it can be a bit difficult with the puzzles, but theyre damn beautiful. Also mini furby things. Haven't finished the game but each scene is beautiful, all the pallates are fantastic. Very happy with it so far. Did I mention it's beautiful? I can't...stop...staring...
