Pretty good adventure type game

The story is really solid! I just wish the plot could have unfolded a little more organically through dialogue as opposed to finding notes everywhere and having to read diary entries. Puzzles were decent and the mechanics of the game remind me a little of Ghost Trick. One thing that could be greatly improved and probably easy to update - the illustrations of the cinematics. The illustrations look a bit amateur and they don't match the style of the gameplay graphics which appear more refined. It's not a good first impression of the game. You aren't animating them anyway, so it would be simple enough to find another illustrator to spruce up the production value. Overall, I am impressed though, and I would buy another game from this company!

Beautiful story

Well done ! An immersive and beautiful story . Lots of gameplay. Puzzles add to the story. Walkthrough not needed. I truly hope the developers of Whispering Willows are working on other high quality games ....

Excellent game

It was fun to watch this story unfold. The gameplay is simple but the point is to piece together and solve the mystery. Well done.
