    I enjoyed every moment of Lost Ember, and when I stopped playing, I just wanted to get back in the game and wander around more and find more of the memories. The way the wolf and ember’s stories interweave is also touching and drew me into the world. It’s only about 6 hours long, depending on how much time is spent exploring, but it’s a great focused adventure game.

    Lost Ember departs from typical video game fighting and puzzle-solving to tell a heartfelt story through the eyes of its animal protagonist. Thanks to its stunning art direction and obvious love for its subject matter, it offers a genuine emotional payoff despite having some elements that still feel undercooked.

    Since the first "official" announcement at Gamescom 2016 I was curious about Lost Ember. The premise with the animals and the fallen civilization as well as the appealing look quickly made sure that I was excited about the title. In the end Lost Ember is a lot of what I had hoped for. Calm, emotional, visually stunning and ... simply beautiful! It's a lot of fun to glide over the wonderful landscapes and put the game world and its secrets to the acid test. The only pity is that it really doesn't have much to offer. The story is really good, but apart from that Lost Ember offers quite little. Unfortunately, the found objects are hardly motivating. Nonetheless, Lost Ember manages to create a lot of significant moments, that I will surely remember for a long time.

    Based on an impeccable art direction, Lost Ember provides a very enjoyable and quite emotional experience but suffers from some technical issues that prevent it from being a must have.

    Lost Ember is a very relaxing and intriguing walking simulator that follows a special wolf that can possess many other animals. Despite the numerous bugs that the game shows, it´s an enjoyable (but brief) adventure.

    The Story telling is amazing.

    Children will like to switch from animal to animal.
    Adults with get the real meaning of the story.

    The game Is fairly quick and easy but there is a tone of collectible to find on the map + the landscape are just stunning.

    Great job from the guys at Mooneye. it was worth the wait :D

    Great game if you love animals and story

    In short: 9 out of 10

    Pros: Beautiful graphics, ability to posses different animals, good-written story, fine soundtrack

    Cons: minor glitches (you can finish the game without problem, though), not great optimization for PC (mine is ultrabook with intel hd), at chapters 1-3 (out of 7) it's hard to find where to go.

    So: if you love animals and walking simulators — then grab it right now!
    Maaayyybe with some discount (fully worth price of pre-order — 20$, but not worth full 30$ in current state).

    Overall I enjoyed this game :)

    The game is a very unique experience with an its focus on navigation and exploration with the different animals. The game has some really awesome moments and the multiple control scheme are engaging and interesting. The story is solid but it's not really my cup of tea - I prefer the fun of the gameplay and the vast level hubs with its beautiful vegetation. After their debut mobile game, Lost Ember is a big step in the development of this young team.

    O jogo é lindo..

    Mesmo que não seja um jogo necessariamente voltado a minha idade, é difícil não se impressionar com alguns aspectos, como a direção de arte, ost, gráficos, o trabalho de áudio como um todo. A gameplay é bem simples, eu definitivamente colocaria meu filho - se eu tivesse, pra jogar esse game. Nota 8.
