Ratings and Reviews
I had a great time with this game. Total playtime was probably about 15 hours or so to complete by my estimate. Definitely worth the price in my opinion. I think the difficulty was perfect. I was able to complete it without looking at any hints, although there was definitely a handful of spots which made me have to put take a step back and reassess the situation in the game for an idea of what to do to progress. I think that’s where the fun comes from in this game. I highly encourage players not to jump to quickly to look at hints. I promise you that if you think logically and revisit the areas that are open to you that no puzzle was obscure enough to need a hint to pass.
Pro tip: You can speed up traveling across the screen to enter a different area by double tapping on the area or door you’re trying to enter. It’ll teleport your player there instead of waiting for the animation of her walking all the way to the area. Didn’t learn that until I was nearly done with the game.
Classic point and click adventure with a twist
I enjoyed playing this adventure game so much! All of the puzzles were organic and I also loved the augmentation abilities. It really added another layer of gameplay that didn’t deter from the story at all. Good characters, though I really wish we got to see more of the backstory between Vera and Alex. It would have made the decision at the end of the game that much more powerful and conflicting. I would play the sequel if one was released! Thank for making this game. Not many out there with this level of detail. Great graphics as well. It was just enough detail to be beautiful, yet it still had that 90s retro look to it as well. I will always continue to support games like this for the rest of my life.
Gem of a new adventure game on iOS
I’m an old school point and click adventure game fan, and though I’m happy to see classics like Broken Sword and Day of the Tentacle ported over to iOS, they honestly just don’t play as well as they do on the PC. Moving around is a pain, choosing actions is a pain.
Whispers surprised me by remaining point and click but streamlining the gaming process beautifully so that you’re actually focused on the game and not how cumbersome it is to play.
Which is great, because it’s an engrossing game. Investigating as Vera is a lot of fun, and it does feel like an investigation rather than a spooky thriller, which a lot of detective games try to be. I want to solve mysteries, not tiptoe around fearfully.
I just wish the empathetic options (you gain different abilities depending on your responses to people, which gives you completely different ways to solve puzzles) weren’t quite so...sappy. There’s a point where you try to determine what a piece of graffiti depicts, and the empathetic option is “two flowers hugging”. You can be a good people person without stepping right out of Sesame Street, y’know.
In any case, definitely worth the purchase!
