    Embracelet is a truly wonderful game, with truthful loveliness at its core. It’s a game about being 17, about those first steps toward adulthood, finding out who you are, and dealing with loss, love and mystical bracelets with magic powers.

    Embracelet doesn’t offer much challenge, it’s a welcome change of pace from the norm, and the simplicity of its gameplay and beautiful low-poly presentation nicely serve an elegantly told, astoundingly good story.

    The gameplay elements of Embracelet may not always be particularly strong or unique, but the world that Jesper inhabits is one that begs for players to keep exploring. Each character has their own quirks and interests, and they each add something important to a game that becomes more relatable as a result. Players can't help but root for Jesper at every turn as he learns how to become more independent and gains confidence, and for its narrative alone, Embracelet is a must play.

As such, the graphics are blockish and the story a bit simple-minded, but you can easily get to a satisfying conclusion. There's no voice-acting and no time-pressure, which makes it relaxing in a way. Sometimes it seems slow-paced, but that fits the setting and story pretty well. It took me about 6 hours to play through the first time, and I wasn't pushing the pace at all. The English version is easy to understand; several other languages are available. If you like graphic novels, you'll probably enjoy this game. If you're addicted to action-adventure titles, you'll likely find it a snooze. I admire the author's concept and ethical constraints compared to most computer game stories today. Expand
