Beautiful game with some weaknesses

The game is strikingly beautiful, and the puzzles are fairly interesting. One complaint I have is that the pace of the game is incredibly slowed by the abundance of dialogue, much of which is un-skippable, and including a 5-10 minute musical interlude that also cannot be skipped. The layout is one of my favorite styles, classic point and click adventure in the vein of King’s Quest and Monkey Island, only the inventory items are chosen for you when you interact with something in the screen, and again, the pacing is nearly unbearable. Still I give it 4 stars, because it obviously had a lot of heart and a lot of time put into sculpting the world of Truberbrook.


Major bug at the end of the game - cannot finish

While nicely animated, the gameplay can become tedious. Frequently in order to progress, you have to repeat conversations with characters which is a bit illogical. The mechanics of using inventory items is devoid of any thought. If an inventory item can be used, it is automatically selected for you. Most games of this type require you to figure out on your own which inventory item or combination of items to use in a given situation. Finally, and most frustrating is a rendering bug I encountered as I was just about to complete the game. The bug has prevented me from finishing the game. Watching a walkthrough online, the bug became obvious. At one point Gretchen is fighting with Lazarus and a force field generates around them. When I played the game, the force field was a solid, grid of hexagons. When I watched the walkthrough, the grid is supposed to be transparent. This is essential to the progression of the game. In my case the sequence renders incorrectly and leaves me stranded after playing for several hours. Hopefully the developer does a better job on the next one.

Wonderfully immersive and beautifully made

I just completed this game in about 6.5 hours on my new iPhone 12 Pro Max. It was wonderful to find myself immersed in a game and its storyline. The gameplay took me back to the days of Monkey Island, Loom and Grim Fandango. I wish more people made games like this. My experience was completely glitch-free and the hotspot indicators ensured that it remained fun instead of being an exercise in frustration. This is not a game for the ADD generation as it requires thinking, listening and no killing whatsoever to progress. The only part I didn’t enjoy was the seemingly endless series of questions that needed to be answered in exactly the right sequence to escape the sanatorium. I must admit that I needed the help of an online walkthrough for that part. I loved this game and I hope the producers will make more such games. Truly a labor of love and thankfully without any in-game purchases or advertising. For five bucks this is a steal.
