    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.

    Great game overall

    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

    all the game play mechanics contribute to each other very well and give the game an overall feeling of freedom and polish. the story is where it slightly falls behind, the underling universe and plot are brilliant and the story of your character that you relive is very interesting and relatively unique, however the voice acting inst top quality (as expected from a relatively indie company, they haven't got Sean bean) and due to the overall lack of dialogue i do feel the characters and emotional build up kinda fall flat. however where it falls short in direct story telling it more than makes up for in visual story telling, the massive quite intact upper class home help create the clear divide between the upper class and the run down empty homes of the lower class, which are the focus of the first few chapters. another thing that it falls short on that isn't the games fault is the camera, sometimes you are forced into an almost first person view in small areas that is very off putting and don't help with the immersion or atmosphere the game is going for, also in your wolf form the camera becomes surprisingly unwieldy and you can struggle with minute movements. however this is to be expected from a 3D 3rd person game where you can be of many different sizes and can overall be avoided with general knowledge of how not to move your character.
    also the wombats are adorable.
