    Everhood is simply incredible. A carnival populated by masks that have lost their humanity, a deep, rich tale, enhanced by a gameplay that mixes rhythm game, adventure and RPG. A gem that deserves to be played by as many people as possible.

    Everhood is a fantastic freshman effort that brings unexpected and refreshing spins to both the RPG and rhythm genre. The creative combat system and repeat-friendly soundtrack are definitely strong points but the thought-provoking story elevates the unusual adventure to excellent heights.

    Chris Nordgren and Jordi Roca created something unique and delightful. Everhood’s music-based combat system is absolutely brilliant in its simplicity and addictive as hell, the soundtrack is stellar, and I enjoyed the surreal atmosphere and the story which often breaks the fourth wall. It’s a gem you should definitely play. [05/2021, p.30]

    Overall, if I had to describe Everhood in a single word, it’d be “experiment.” It’s a game that tests interesting concepts to become its own thing. Combining adventure with RPG-Esque mechanics and an enjoyable take on rhythm combat that offers a unique experience for any looking for something new.

    In conclusion, we recommend Everhood to all Toby Fox fans who are waiting for the Deltarune project to finally be concluded.

    Everhood is a unique product thanks to a message which makes an impression to the player. It’s a philosophical and very human history, even if the supporting characters are not up to the standard. The playability, with a significant original soundtrack, is also one-of-a-kind.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Perhaps Everhood is one of the weirdest adventures I’ve had when it comes to my time playing videogames. I’ve been to many planets, explored various dungeons but never found myself in a cosmic hub, staring down at doors which talked to me and told me about their destinations until I played this game.

    I guess the best way to describe Everhood is just the word weird, but it isn’t weird in a bad way, it is weird in an amazingly good way, it makes you think about various topics some other people would avoid because of the paranoia it causes them this topic being existentialism.

    Going into the least amount of spoilers possible I will say that we’re confronted with the choice of killing those who we bonded with, those who trusted us and called us a pal, but only one choice will be the correct choice in the end as the other will bring suffering to everyone including yourself.

    I give this game a 10/10 because of the music, the sounds, the ambient s that we are presented with and the memorable characters that I just can’t get out of my head as well as the challenges to come.

    Okey, this game is amazing, but its too long a bit, last part of game is definitly too long, to be honest its one of the best indie game thisOkey, this game is amazing, but its too long a bit, last part of game is definitly too long, to be honest its one of the best indie game this year. Combat system is fair and challenging. Great plot, but the backgrouds are pretty ugly. This is not crypt of the necrodancer, its ulgy undertale cousin with great combat system. Check it, you will enjoy it. Expand

The rhythm stuff is fun and the story and cast of characters were really enjoyable. Unfortunately, the game makes you think it's about to end for the entire last 2 hours of a 6-hour playthrough before it finally puts you out of your misery. Expand
