Average User Score: 6.5Dec 26, 2013If you are a fan of adventure games then you should definitely try Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, because it has somewhat unique: the original comment for the every combination of items you can find in the game. And not just for the combinations but also for all interactions. My style of playing was actually to enter the new location and try to talk to every single item there. And all the dialogs, texts are very funny and meaningful. Firstly I wanted to skip this part and just start playing the sequel first (Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes). But actually I was disappointed by it after the first one.
The story itself is very good and intriguing till the last moments and the graphics which seem too simple at first are just good for the madness that rules around you. The puzzles may sometimes get weird, but well it's a weird game you know.
The soundtrack is brilliant. I often listen to it after finishing the game. I read few times that english voice isn't very good, but it seems to be the early version and the final one looks very good for me though I'm not a native English speaker.
Anyway, I strongly recommend at least to try it.
P.S. And the story about the creation of the game which was actually started as a university project looks very appealing.… Expand

It has that magic feeling of a fairy tale, you can only experience when you are a child. While playing, it sometimes reminded me of The Longest Journey with that mystery of unknown worlds and adventures.
Anyway, definitely a good one from daedalic keeping artwork to be a masterpiece and some wonderful music from Tilo Alpermann.… Expand
