  • Summary: Lilli, a young girl at a convent school, is the game�s main character. At first glance the best-behaved little girl in the world, she executes all her chores in a diligent manner, no matter how unfair they may be. Her innocent, imperturbable way of carrying out the orders of others has something both tragic and eerie about it. Any angry thoughts, any childlike disobedience is buried deep beneath a seemingly impenetrable surface of sweetness. But how long will these feelings stay hidden? And where do the friendly little gnomes come from that paint over everything unpleasant in Lilli�s vicinity with a pleasant pink color? Are they real or just a product of her subconscious? Expand

    Edna and Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is deep, dark and twisted. If that's your thing, this is your game.

    Witty, and with a wink and nod to the limitations of the point and click style adventure genre Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes gives gamers an adult experience while providing the necessary cover for a teen rating. Recommended for old school gamers looking for a reminder of the past, or those who enjoy quirky plots.

    The sequel of Edna and Harvey: The Breakout again is a cool mix out of crazy puzzles and dialogues, black humor and a pretty good sense of humor and sarcasm. Harvey's New Eyes is even a bit better than the good Edna-adventure before. With Harvey's New Eyes Daedalic proves that they can increase the quality of their even very good games before due to the funny conversations, the bizarre characters and even their deaths.

    Harvey's New Eyes is a crazy adventure developed by Daedalic that introduces a new character in the mad world of Edna&Harvey. Humorous and Funny, it features pretty basic puzzles and situations.

    The first Edna & Harvey was weird, unique and original. The second attempted to be more weird, unique and original, but went too far and overdid it. Furthermore, one can’t ignore the complete lack of challenge and it’s a shame really, as there were some amazing ideas here…[December 2012]

    Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes isn't for everyone. The humor won't tickle everyone's funny bones, and the presentation of both the audio and graphical standpoints leaves something to be desired — despite some of the good things it does.

    So much of what makes the game a repugnant mess in the opening soon makes sense by the end of chapter one, but many problems introduced at the start never fade away.

    Guys, this is a fantastic point and click and game. Great story, characters, graphics, music, atmosphere, creative puzzles, tons of dark jokes, everything is perfect in this little adventure. Deadlic entertainment showed us once more, that they are the best this genre. Expand

    Massive step up from the previous game. The original had you running around an enormous building no idea if one thing or another pertains to your task, let alone what your task was. This time the clues are better the area is concise and the logic makes more sense (for an adventure game). On top of that the quality art, audio, and design is improved. Through the entire game play I had only one bug where the dialog muted, which was easily fixed in the settings.

    The story is also improved, it's the continuation of one of the endings from the previous game. The humor is darker but is has a levity about it that makes it more enjoyable. The endings were interesting but they sadly rob some of the value in what you were doing. It makes it seem like everything that happened did not have to happen.

    Still though this sequel is much better than the original, you may just want to skip the original all together.

    I love this game. It has a good and interesting story, contains a lot of dark humor and has a bunch of cool (and solvable) puzzles. I Highly recommend this game to all adventure fans out there. Expand

    Completely average. It's a point and click adventure that really doesn't offer anything new to the table. You solve puzzles, and talk to people to advance the story. The graphics are child-like and give you the presentation that the game is simplistic, but as you play the game you see that the art style is merely a ruse and there is much more to this world than meets the eye. That's where this game shines, in its background storytelling. Everything else about it is mediocre at best. Expand
