I've played for about 45 minutes so far.
(optional let's play footage)http://youtu.be/I_dPFheMsL8
The game use a 2D background with 3D characters and objects over it. It doesn't look too bad. Initially I noticed a bit of contrast between the the 3D and 2D but these usually seemed to blend together most of the time. The game nice peaceful music playing at all times.
It's a point and click adventure problem solving game. You inspect objects, pick stuff up, use objects together to find solutions to problems. It is typical sort of stuff you in the genre.
It is not a fast game. You spend a lot of time listening to the protagonist's monologue about everything you try to do or look at. There is a lot trial an error finding solutions to objectives. Some of the dialogue is amusing; the protagonist is an inventor and does not speak kindly of Da Vinci who is a rival inventor for him. I kind of liked the part where you actually 'design' inventions by sitting down in the workshop and drawing sketches by combining ideas together. Some of them look pretty funny.
The game isn't too bad. I wouldn't of it's kind but I couldn't find any major problems with it. I would recommend is looking for games like this.
for more let’s play videos =)
