Rhiannon is hearing noises and seeing things she can’t explain. Living in her family’s remote farmstead miles from friends and neighbours and having ambitious, busy parents, Rhiannon is alone.

The moment you enter, you suspect that something is not right. Rhiannon’s stories are true and the farmstead is engulfed in supernatural happenings as an ancient myth spills over into reality.

I just finished this Welsh point-and-click adventure game. You find yourself in a desolate farmhouse in Wales and get to investigate strange ghost-demon related activity there. Let's begin with the fact that it was fun at some times and some of the puzzles were enjoyable. Some moments of the story, too. On the other hand, many of the puzzles were very typical (find a light bulb to enter an unlit room etc.), some of the puzzles were randomly stupid. Many of the parts of the storyline are boring and they feel really random and illogical.

The game was made in 2008, but it feels like 1997. Graphics is OK at times, but most of the time it feels like a high school project, same goes with animation (but there isn't much of that). Music is almost non existant and when it's there, it feels like MIDI made by a single person over a weekend...

Rhiannon was made by a three person development team with Wintermute - freeware amateur software for creating point-and-click games. I got it in a game bundle, but I wouldn't recommend paying more than $1 for this game.

Also, there are bugs. Sometimes inventory items disappear. Sometimes menu buttons (MAP) disappear. If you save afterwards, you'll never get them back. It is a known and never corrected issue.

To sum up: if you ever played a point-and-click adventure game, you probably won't enjoy Rhiannon. If you haven't, you may enjoy it. I wouldn't recommend it though.

A lovely but flawed hard adventure game. Would be especially attractive to fans of Myst/Riven.

The story is very engaging, and the puzzles are "realistic" in that they are never obvious. There is no hand-holding: it's very challenging. Not quite Riven-challenging, but you better take care to look closely at every clue. The puzzles are fair, but sometimes the clues are extremely subtle. For fans of hard puzzles, it would be greatly rewarding to solve them through patience and sheer perseverence. If you're looking for a casual point-and-click, however, this is definitely not it. With a walkthrough, though, it could definitely be a more casual experience.

The UI is annoying: many times you have to click in a very small area, but there is no indication if you get it wrong. Too many times I had the right idea, but thought I was mistaken because I didn't click at exactly the right place. That felt quite unfair.

Another problem is the rather weird pace. You would think that puzzles would get harder towards the end, but suddenly they become easier. It almost feels rushed. Well, except for the very last puzzle ... those always have to make no sense, right?

First person point and click adventure game (like myst). It has pretty badly rendered backgrounds and the navigation is really awful. You will turn around in circles a hundrets times before you are finally facing a wall/thing you need to.

Well, I am on a point and click gaming adventure. This one is ranked low on my list (but it's not the lowest). The highlights for me are the ghostly whispering and spooky images that flash across your screen every once in awhile. Although the tutorial and map navigations is a very nice touch to this point and click game, I still found myself lost, multiple times. Also, when I play point and click games like this, I don't really like to jot down where I found items for later use. However, unlike most point and click games, there is a notepad containing what tasks need to be done, which is a rare thing in these types of older games. If you can look past the movement system and the interface then give this a try, if not, I suggest something else.

Jeu d'aventure/réflexion old school, Rhiannon nous plonge dans les mythes et légendes du Pays de Galles, ce ui a le mérite d'être très rare ! La ferme de Ty Pryderi est plutôt jolie et en impose par sa cohérence et son unité visuelle.

Malheureusement, le coeur du jeu, c'est à dire les énigmes, sont de plus en plus capilotractées au fur et à mesure des chapitres. Comme souvent dans les scénarii fantastiques, les concepteurs utilisent le paranormal et la magie comme mobile à toutes les incohérences. Si les premiers puzzles introduisent rapidement la notion de symboles (comprenez par là, une chose pour en représenter une autre), les analogies et métaphores se font de plus en plus lointaines et obscures, plombant l'histoire, qui en restant classique, est néanmoins intéressante.

Concernant la réalisation, le gameplay est convenu mais assez riche pour un "petit jeu". L'ambiance, en revanche, souffre de très graves défauts. Les environnements sonores se réduisent au bruit du vent et de l'eau dans certaines zones. Les musiques n'apparaissent que lors des cinématique et sont tellement mauvaises qu'elles suppriment tous les effets recherchés (la peur, le paranormal, l'émerveillement, etc).

Bref, à un prix aussi réduit (j'ai payé 4,01euros), le jeu remplit quelques attentes en matière de puzzles et de réflexion. L'équipe très réduite (trois personnes !) a fait un travail honorable qui vaut le coup de s'y pencher, mais n'attendez pas le jeu du siècle (celui-ci ou le précédent).

Whilst I haven't played many games of the Point and Click genre, I do know that the game Scratches has a much bigger map than this one. The voice acting is good, and the graphics aren't too bad but certainly not top notch either. You may find the fonts used throughout the game (even on the main menu) offputting as they don't blend well with the game or interface in my opinion.

I bought it at a discounted price, but to be honest I am having trouble deciding whether or not it was worth that. The storyline was good but, leaves a lot to be answered as we never do meet the girl who is the 'damsen in distress' throughout the entire game. That being said though, it has an interesting theme and I did enjoy the puzzles for the most part.

As for the horror factor, there were a couple of parts that made me jump but it's not really a scary game. The music throughout was sub-par, but bear in mind this may have been made on a small budget.

In conclusion, if you like point and click games Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches has some tricky puzzles, and will be worth picking up at a discounted price. If you are looking for horror, this is very mild at best. And if bad fonts bother you, I wouldn't go for it. Still, I'd recommend it as I managed to finish the game and the story is fairly thorough.

One of the most beautiful point&click I've ever played. I liked it very very much. There are games in which you waste your time wandering wandering around whitout understanding what to do and tring every item on everything, hoping it would trigger something.. in Rhiannon you can procede step by step and only what is really necessary in that moment (the right item is highlighted on the right space). And don't forget the story is awesome, interesting and haunting, Definitevely, you must have it in your library!

This game is very tedious. Be prepared to get eye strain reading all of the pages of hard to read dairies and other documents. That said, for a game that is fairly old it is well done and for the price is worth the challenge. Like most games of this type trying to figure out what to do next is the real problem. The game has many places to visit and many "screens" to study. It's easy to overlook important clues. Acess to a good walk through will lessen the frustration factor. The lead chracter is absolutely fearless in that she goes places and does things that the average person would not do in light of all of the stange events that she is experiencing. I didn't find any bugs or have any crashes while playing this game.

If you like point and click game, this game is suitable for you. so far so good, the graphic is okay, the storyline is okay too, still enjoyable, finding things is quite easy because the hints are obvious. Got this one on sale, i think it's no problem with me to spend money on this game. i recommend this one because i like mysteries also i'm so into 'detective thing'.

I know it looks like I haven't played the game, but I finished this edition from a physical copy before I had it in Steam.

This is one of my favorite Myst-like adventures. if you can still enjoy the slide show style of movement, and you like a creepy (if not genuinely scary) vibe, try it out. I love the setting and the sound, and once you get over a few quirks in the inventory interface, the puzzles mostly make sense.

This game makes me wish I was Welsh.

Absolute recommendation! But buyers should be aware that it 's rather low budget.
It takes a while until the story and the game itself get interesting, but then it's really fun! The atmosphere is great, it's fun to explore the grounds, there are three or four Jump Scares and at some point you immersed yourself really deep in the story. Thanks to the map you can travel to another location within seconds without having to click through like a maniac. The graphics look pretty dated and music is virtually non-existent, but the sound effects are great. The voice overs sound great, too (lovely accents!) The built-in help (Notebook) was really helpful sometimes, other times it had even the most obvious tasks in it and sometimes nothing at all (ie I had no task and had no clue where to go). Accordingly I had to use a walkthrough; people with a lot of patience will manage without though. The puzzles themselves are very fair and logical. However, I felt that it constantly got easier instead of harder. The controls are not 100 % smooth either (I missed a few screens/items and it's easy to lose orientation) but it's not really annoying or preventing progress or anything. I didn't encounter any bugs either.
If you can live with these low budget flaws you get a really fun and rewarding game!

Au départ je n'étais pas très emballée par ce jeu à cause des graphiques et du système de déplacements (un grand merci à la carte qui nous permet de nous téléporter) mais finalement c'est ce qui fait le charme du jeu, et je dois reconnaître qu'il réussi à instaurer une atmosphère qui lui est propre.

Le scénario ne m'avait pas passionnée au départ mais il s'approfondit au fil des chapitres et j'ai passé un très bon moment à réaliser chaque étape pour défaire la malédiction. Le gameplay pourrait sembler un peu répétitif puisque le principe est le même pour chaque chapitre (trouver des objets symbolisant la légende de Pryderi pour obtenir un orb de chaque élément) mais cela ne m'a pas dérangée du tout, au contraire. Seul bémol, le jeu m'a semblé un peu trop facile, surtout que nous sommes presque trop guidés par le système de notes, qui au demeurant reste utile.

En définitive, un jeu que j'ai beaucoup apprécié et qui vaut largement son prix, et du beau travail de la part d'un petit studio comme celui-ci.
