    There are some things that did frustrate us, but its universe, story and concept are so unique that we couldn't stop playing.

    Oknytt is a game that manages to capture well the feeling of a classic Nordic fairy tale. It creates an atmosphere that almost feels like walking around in a John Bauer painting. Too bad the puzzles is somewhat unimaginative even though the system with the four elements is rather interesting. Oknytt is worth playing for fans of the adventure genre even if it’s nothing extraordinary.

    A charming yet unassuming adventure through the pantheon of Swedish folklore, Oknytt is good enough to warrant your attention, though it won’t blow you away.

    There's nothing to criticize in terms of Oknytt's visual and sound qualities. However, problems reveal themselves while playing the game. Its puzzles are far too simple, and its rune system is downright dull. Both adventure game fans and Norse mythology lovers will scrape out some fun from Oknytt, but for the rest of you there's just a good-looking and good-sounding drag.

    A true work of art.
    Backgrounds and characters are beautifully hand painted. The art style is very unique: it's dark without being
    depressing. A deep sense of myth and mystery floats in every screen of the game. Every tiny light seems so bright and comforting!

    Wandering in the never-ending night, the player meets various creatures from the Swedish folklore.
    They can be funny, touching, reassuring or frightening.
    Their voices are all acted by one man: Brian Hall who offers a strong and beautiful performance.

    Playing Oknytt is an unparalleled & engrossing travel to an unknown world.

    Great and atmospheric game with a hint of creepy and good humour, this fairytale will not disappoint you, despite the eventual annoyance of getting stuck on a certain puzzle for missing a small detail or two.
    The artwork and story is excellent and captivating.

    A very atmospheric adventure game in an interesting setting with a touching story, nice soundtrack and gloomy art style. Based on Swedish mythology and folklore this mysterious game will likely catch you if you like interesting adventure or just unusual games. Expand

    While this is not the best adventure game. Oknytt is a very good one. The Nordic folklore creates a very unique atmosphere in the game. The puzzles aren't too complicated and sometimes even too easy, but in general the game play is quite solid and the story is interesting to follow. Expand
