I will not recommend this as it doesn't match the greatness of the comic books. You should read those first. This game is possibly just for hardcore fans as it doesn't have great plot structure except for doing chores.

With only a few dollars balance left on my account, I remembered back to my childhood when "Bone" was the most relevant and popular graphic novel out there. It had great characters, an interesting plot, and an expansive world and mythology. Now all these factors should translate well into a game, right? Sadly, Telltale did not live up to the comic with this game.

Firstly, it is a point-and-click game. While in theory this would work in favour, there is just not enough to observe in the enviorments. It's a rather empty game, lacking in atmosphere and inspiration. The dull voice-acting doesn't help at all. There are several moments where the game transitions to a sort-of "mini-game" mode, and these segments do not work at all. They're unclear, dodgy in response, and attribute nothing to the experience.

All in all: Stick to the comic-book. F&@k this game.

Bone: Out from Bonerville is the most swagginest game. If I were to be able to get a physical copy of this game I would have sex with it on a daily basis, it is baller.

Game isn't bad overall, but it's extremely buggy and you can be forced to replay the entire game at certain points due to bugged inventory code. Skip it.

If this should be recommended probably depends on the other acts of this series. As it is, Out From Boneville feels pretty unfinished, as if it didn't even make to the polishing phase. Altogether this seems to be more of a proof-of-concept adventure for the TellTale engine. From design (protagonists' models and movements are somewhat similar to Max's) and voice actors (e.g. main protagonist's voice is Sam's) I'd say this adventure was done to show the Sam & Max adventures could be done, which incidentially are what I would recommend everyone to play way before touching this game.

+ It's an adventure
+ TellTale engine: 3D world, camera 'following' the player
+ Good voice acting: David Nowlin (Sam) and other voices from TellTale's Sam & Max

- Way too short and still somewhat boring
- Story almost completely developed in introduction cutscene
- Awful controls in action sequences
- Skipping dialogue parts may skip more than can be read at the time

The story builds little momentum, mainly driven by the introduction cutscene and by some pieces of dialogue that appear disconnected at times. And the first act is over in nearly no time.
Puzzles are very easy. Basically it's combining the few things you find with the environment, the main obstacle here is finding items as they are not highlighted in any way (which I'm fine with). Other times your current objective is helped by dialogue.
There are three scenes with their own puzzle mechanics - labyrinth, hide and seek - which is nice.

Using items inconsistently makes the mouse cursor that object or the standard 'use' cursor.

There are two very bad third-person action sequences in which you have to escape whatever follows you. They are bad because your control options - jump, go left, go right (as opposed to turn left or right) - are executed with the mouse and the left-right movement control is nothing close to tight. There is no indication as to how far you just moved the character before it stops moving in that direction which can feel pretty long after you let go of your mouse and make you run into obstacles - not fit for reaction sequence. Both sequences are short but not short enough to not bore. Then again you can simply fail them after which the game offers to skip them.

Personal preference: I don't like it when the played character, one of two, behaves like a ♥♥♥♥♥, more so if that interferes in no way with completing objectives. Maybe that's why the 'protagonists' are from Boneville.

I may recommend this act after playing the next one as piece of the overall experience but I don't expect the second part to take it away.
For now, I don't recomment Out From Boneville.

Positives: It's short, like two hours or under. The characters look about like you'd expect.

Negatives: It's tedious and boring, making it feel much longer than the short runtime.

'Bone' is one of my favorite books (graphic or otherwise) ever. It's a wonderful fantasy adventure. I also enjoy TellTale's games (though they aren't perfect). So I should love this, right? I wish.

Every task you're asked to complete is clearly busy work. None of the "puzzles" is truly driven by the story. They're just hoops to jump through in order to get to the next screen. The worst offender is when you're asked to guide Ted the bug across the river. Without a walkthrough, I never would have gotten across as the logic dicated by the pattern of his jumps breaks down when you get close to the other side. It looks like I should be able to make the jumps necessary as the stones are spaced just like rest, and I tried multiple spots to lead from, but there is only one single way to get across, and if you don't follow it, it won't allow you to make the jumps.

An additional crime, less painful but still aggravating, is the inability to skip voiced dialogue. I can generally read the text much faster than the voice actor will deliver it, and when I'm in the middle of an extended Q&A, I want to get it over with as soon as possible. But perhaps that's my impatience with the overall game. I just wanted to be done and wished I could speed up any little bit of it. This lack of skipability carries over into the end credits. They're slowly scrolled and, for some heinous reason, quadruple spaced. And you... can't... skip them.

To be fair, the early sections of the book are relatively uneventful, but maybe that should have been a sign to TellTale. 'Bone' would make a phenomenal animated movie, but videogames are an interactive medium, and that interaction needs to feel meaningful. The source material here, as much as I love it, doesn't bear the weight of player interaction.

Unless you're the most die-hard fan of TellTale's games, skip this one. Fans of the book? Stay away.
