It's 1920's Norway, and you play as Ruth, a young woman who lives alone on a remote farm at the end of a faraway fjord. You take care of your cows and make delicious dairy products that your friend sells in the closest town. But life is hard and work is tough, and Ruth ponders: Is this really the life I want? It's not easier when mysterious things start happening to you and your cows.

And then a huge, mysterious ship descends from the skies, turning Ruth's life upside-down.

Questions without answers

I loved the game and would play it endlessly, however by the end of the game each time I am left with more questions than answers like what happened after she left her barn behind, who are the aliens, where did they come from, what would happen if erland returned to the barn and didn’t see her or the cows there, what are her and the aliens going to do now that the queen is gone, where are they going to go, will ruth ever return to earth, and most importantly what will happen next. I would like to see another game come out that would answer these questions. This game really has the potential to be something more, don’t let it go to waste.

Impressive Rhymes in Multi-Languages

I love classic point-and-clicks by LucasArts and Sierra. This game very much reminded me and gave me that feel of old King’s Quest games, but especially Loom.

It is shorter than most adventures, but it is sophisticated. I am fluent in both French and English and found the translation of the dialogues impressively accurate while maintaining rhyme, and still giving the necessary hints to solve problems. These are for sure not “just translated.” A lot of thought went into it. I applaud the creator for this.

The story is sweet, and the puzzles not over the top difficult. It’s a friendly point-and-click for newbies.

There has never been a finer example that pixels are just a canvas for what can be a moving and emotional story. I am just getting started, and it is such a touching presentation of what a girl's life could be like on the mountain. And, so far, we are missing some of the annoying aspects of the classics - red herrings, pointless deaths. A retro game that would have fit in well in the King's Quest era, but with subtle modern effects like moving clouds and a real piano and classical guitar moving soundtrack. The attention to detail and frequent shifting of perspective is reminiscent of Another World.
