Reviews

“If you’re looking for a chance to walk in someone’s shoes while reclaiming some of those lost childhood AOL memories, Secret Little Haven is a wonderful game for that particular itch.”
Kotaku

“Through exploring its hidden places, buried treasures, and the private thoughts of friends as they open up to one another, the truth of how Alex really feels can blossom, taking the player on a heart-wrenching, beautiful journey.”
IndieGames

“That’s what Secret Little Haven is: A love letter to every confused kid who used media to cope with their pain, and not really knowing why. That healing salve to the pain of the Real World that doesn’t understand you. A tribute to that fantasy you had of being a Magical Girl, a fantasy that you probably still have even in your adult years.”
