    I absolutely adored my time spent with If Found…. I knew within the first few minutes that it was going to be something truly special, earning a place in my favourite games of all time. The art from Liadh Young is stunning, the music sounds and feels like a dream and its story is unique, provocative and wonderful. Very few video games have made a true and permanent mark on my heart, but If Found… has done just that

    The game is made whole through an effective, ethereal soundtrack of post-rock instrumentals and ambient tones.

    If Found... is a visual novel that navigates its subject matter with care, its loose hand-drawn art immersing us in a world that we are forced to unmake. Its central metaphor of erasure is horribly effective, forcing us to destroy this fleshed out person's personhood. Through its thoughtful depiction of LGBTQ themes, bold presentation, and penchant for articulating all of the messy particulars of its protagonist's life, If Found... is a deeply moving coming-of-age tale.

    The game reveals its brilliance by constantly and subtly reconfiguring the emotions behind erasure.

    If Found ... does not tell something new but tells it well.

    If Found... is a wonderful coming of age story and an artistically gem both visually and soundwise. It's a peculiar tale of a group of characters incredibly real and relatable. After all finding the real ourselves is a daunting task, one that deserve a little artistic masterpiece like this even with an extremely simplistic gameplay. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Anyone interested in narrative-focused games needs to check If Found… out. While there are some stumbling points here and there, the act of playing and experiencing the artistry is top notch. This is a game much closer to a dream than a visual novel. If Found… is the latest release from developer DREAMFEEL and will be many people’s introduction to them. It makes an incredible impression and cements this studio as one to watch. Hopefully this release inspires others to create their own games to share their unique experiences with the world.
