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.

Words are not enough to express my dislike of this game - glitches that cause part of the menu to poof for good; events that seem to undo themselves because you did something out of order... the simple fact that you can do some things out of order is annoying because there are so many you can just not do until the game deems it time. If the item I want is right in front of me, just let me grab it. There were some okay puzzles, but a lot of them were random as heck and nonintuitive or just plain made no sense at all. The story left a lot to be desired as well, and what little you get simply comes from far too much reading, so by the time you get to story text that would be interesting, you are just so tired of filler text that you don't care enough to read it. Navigating in this game was also a major pain and some areas were awkard and could not be reached unless you moved in a certain way that made no sense. The ending was a let down that had me going "huh, is that it?" The girl magically comes back off-screen after putting a cloud of smoke in the ground... yeah okay where was she, what happened to her really? We hear nothing about where she was all this time? Well.... let's just cover that all up with a "twist" that says the unnamed woman who died just so happened to be the mother of the dude helping you with the translations... not that that adds a single thing to the story, and I kinda expected it with the way he was so into the lore, etc., that he'd chat up a seemingly-"losing it" young girl.

P.S. I swear to god you are some kind of diary voyeur because you snoop so so many of them in this game, and despite most of the entries being filled with garbage or blank pages that you still have to flip through (which may be more realistic but tedious), you always go back for more the next time you see one.

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.

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.
