Absolutely amazing..

I never write reviews on here, but I had to make an exception for this game. Crazy how long it takes to get water, and it goes to show you just how hard they have it over there. Very lucky and fortunate to not have to do the same just to get some water. Definitely recommend this to all, it’s well worth your time and may change your perspective on things. Helps you to understand and truly appreciate the things we have.

Beautiful game

I have to say it was a beautiful game. And it really makes you think about the struggles of other people. It was easy enough to figure out and play and I am almost 50 & not game Davy AT ALL! The end though-almost gave up, that was tough, whew lol. The only negatives I have to say for me were the arguing brothers puzzle and the poachers. I don’t know if I had glitches happen there or if more was supposed to happen. I solved the puzzle to find out what the brothers were arguing about & it was totally blank & then immediately took me to another scene. And then the poachers it wouldn’t take me out of the scene, just kept saying the poachers came from the north when I’d roll over that particular spot. I ended up having to skip that scene myself. Not sure if anyone else had luck in those spots, I just don’t like holes in the storyline like that. If u put it in there, complete it. Other than that, love it. Hope it brings awareness to countries struggling to get safe drinking water as well as making those who have it more conscious about saving such a precious resource!!

Beautiful story - educational and uplifting

If you are looking for something to entertain you then this is probably not it - but - if you’re looking for a story to be told through an interactive game, then this is for you. It’s a beautiful story - simple, uplifting, realistic, and uplifting. You’ll appreciate how blessed you are to be living in a first world country with running water and education. You’ll also realize the shared humanity we should all embrace - most everyone wants a place to raise their kids safely, education so they can better themselves, and a community of people who you can enjoy a simple cup of coffee with.
