    Little Misfortune brings back all the dark visions from Fran Bow and it's another disturbing and fascinating adventure.

    Don’t be fooled by the glitter and sparkles: Little Misfortune is a surprisingly dark but very engaging grown-up tale about a little girl trying to find beauty in life’s ugliness.

    Dark humour is used liberally throughout Little Misfortune’s exploration of bleak themes. Half of the time, you don’t know whether to laugh or recoil in horror. Either way, it’s easy to become absorbed in the plight of our little heroine. It’s pretty short for the price of admission and arguably a little too much of a cinch to play, but a loveably weird tale all the same.

    The story made me uneasy not because I thought: ‘those are the kind of things that shouldn’t be said out loud’ but because I thought: ‘it’s unsettling how poorly it is written, how badly they depicted a child’s naivety and how everything is just too over the top’. [12/2019, p.78]

    Right now, Little Misfortune is at the top of my personal list of bitter disappointments of 2019. I would have overlooked many of its flaws, if it were just a pilot episode in a series. Alas, this is a finished product.

  1. Despite having my skin crawl at almost everything Mr. Voice said, his breaking the fourth wall to rope the player into his scheme creates an awful sense of complicity. Thankfully, this is directly balanced by the joy whenever you can lead Misfortune into any small act of rebellion against him. It’s a giddy combination of adult smugness at getting one over on a rival combined with childish conspiratorial whispering under a blanket fort.

I don't know why critics scored it so low or maybe I know! Because we're in the time where people enjoy useless games like Fortnite and can't seem to understand gems like Fran Bow or Little Misfortune! Period. Expand

The review Mandy released was pretty stupid, it' s
    the dev's choice to not make it a Point and Click, this doesnt make any sense, and considering the game has nice art, music, humor etc. That does not mean the developers tried to make a quick buck.

    Yes, it is not Fran Bow. But it is a good game. It is shorter though - for some it may be too short. But it is well made!
