    It's a great graphic adventure, one that puts the narrative at the center of the stage, and does so successfully.

    It’s a bummer that a game that looks as good, and is as well-designed and polished as Alum, misses the boat on story so badly.

    I'm not the biggest point and click fan, but what really caused me to stop playing this was the long continously scripted conversations/eventI'm not the biggest point and click fan, but what really caused me to stop playing this was the long continously scripted conversations/event at the end of chapter 1 and into chapter 2. It just kept going and going. When it finally stopped and gave me a chance to exit I took it before it had an opportunity to start another long conversation with someone else. I've seen good reviews on this which got me to that point in the game, but I was having difficulty sustaining interest up to that point. I can tell love and care was put into the game, but it just wasn't working for me. If you like point/click adventures and all that comes with them (specifically having to do things a certain way to proceed) then maybe give this a go. The game seems like it's going to have heavy religious undertones and overtones, so be aware of the themes. I really couldn't get into it though, and can't really recommend. Expand
