    Pilgrims is a playful adventure game, created by the team behind Machinarium and Samorost. Roam the land as you please and make new friends, share a laugh with your fellow travelers and help them complete their little stories, your way. How many different solutions can you find?

    It is most enjoyable if you're into:

    - Playfulness: Don't beat it - play with it! Solve the various tasks using dozens of items and unique characters without being obliged to follow a single designated path.

    - Replayability: Packed with 45 achievements, Pilgrims is a game designed to be played through more than just once. Can you collect them all?

    - Hand-crafted appeal: Hundreds of unique animations and custom made sound effects result in countless humorous and unexpected outcomes. Try to discover as many as you can!

    - Original music: Floex (Machinarium, Samorost 3) is back at it with his mix of live instruments and organic electronics, joined by guests on guitar or clarinet.

    Only the length disappoints us. Even by the studio's standards, Pilgrims is a slip of a thing. [Issue#139, p.122]

    It’s a short game, but its beautiful hand drawn art style is a source of constant delight, as are the interactions in this work of startling originality from the makers of Samorost and Machinarium.

    TL;DR

    Pilgrims is a short hand drawn adventure card game with fairy tale about 4 pilgrims.

    What story? 3/3 Good.
    You are watching your pilgrims play card game at the beginning. They separate their own ways and it's up to you to befriend them so you can solve rather simple riddles. First walkthrough finished in 30 minutes. Second was speedrun in 15 minutes.

    Game play? 3/3 Good. An adventure game offers various items to try and even if you don't get the right one, you get to see animation for it. You can combine characters and items (cards on the bottom screen) simply by drawing them in right order.

    Each character has their abilities with the cards you own and are treating the puzzles and NPCs differently. Re playability? 3/3 Good. One of main features of the game is that you will unlock new little stories as you solve puzzles in different ways and so you have 45 achievements to unlock.

    I had 20 unlocked after two runs. Having possibly extra 30 minutes of content. Graphics? 3/3 Good. Its hand drawn style and funny animations are self explanatory even without sound that only adds to great atmosphere. Music? 3/3 Good. Music is brilliant, it spans from string to wind instruments and filled with electronics altogether in uplifting, rather cheering theme, voices are intelligible in Czech but mostly fit in as blabbering, and ambient sounds are spot on relaxing. Hardware requirements? Non gaming. β˜‘

    How difficult? Easy. β˜‘

    How long? Less than 2 hours. β˜‘

    Verdict 6/6 it's humorous logic game, slightly drastic animations, happy music, atmospheric sounds, little harsh words, distinctive characters, nicely drawn graphics.

    I'd say it is focused on age 7+, if you considered getting this as bedtime story to your child.
