    Once Upon a Jester is a phenomenal and hilarious adventure title that'll make your sides hurt. I adored its crazy plot, excellent aesthetics, and original approach. My only complaint is its lack of longevity and replay value.

    Once Upon a Jester is a hilarious, heartfelt experience with improvisational gameplay, excellent voice acting, and replayability. Though the shows can feel repetitive, branching dialogue and varied genres keep things interesting.
