    I bought the game already imagining that it would not be the most amazing game ever launched or the GOTY. More than an Indie game, the producer, Swordtales, comes from Brazil, a place where game making is on the first steps to maturity.

    After playing the game for about 2 hours, I can say somethings about it. The gameplay is rather short (1h20-2h is all you need to finish the game) and
    I bought the game already imagining that it would not be the most amazing game ever launched or the GOTY. More than an Indie game, the producer, Swordtales, comes from Brazil, a place where game making is on the first steps to maturity.

    After playing the game for about 2 hours, I can say somethings about it. The gameplay is rather short (1h20-2h is all you need to finish the game) and it's rather clunck and lack some variety. But the ambience and the music are amazing. The graphics, although not next gen are very good and they integrate very well with the music and settings. The story is beautiful, altough I think it need more space and development.

    What I want to say is that the game needed and should be longer, so the gameplay and the story could develop better. Because of the short gameplay time the story is sometimes confusing what makes you want more information (for better understanding and to know the story better).

    There are also some little bugs and glitches here and there (mostly visual) but nothing that would block your gameplay

    Pros
    +Amazing Soundtrack - Music - 9/10
    +Beautiful Settings and Ambience - Art - 8,5/10
    +Lovely Story - Story - 8/10

    Neutral
    -+ Some visual Glitches and bugs - Game Stability - 7/10
    -+ Fair Graphics - Graphics - 6,5/10

    Cons
    -Short and clunky gameplay - Gameplay - 6/10
    -Underdeveloped Narrative - Narrative - 6/10

    Score - 7/10

    "Buy it or not?" - Do it! Although it's short, it's cheap and the amazing music, ambience and good story are worth it

    Game is short, story could be more clear, graphic/animation could be better. Abyss level was totally awful.
    Definitely not "10/10", but still game is pretty decent for indie. People who enjoy Dear Esther and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter probably could try it.

    Because it's such a small game, there isn't all that much to it; it's not a game with something for everyone. Still, even if you're interested, remember that the game is only two hours long, even though it's a very focused two hours, some people may feel they have overpaid for the amount of content they are given.

    Toren’s gameplay is so shallow and poorly executed that makes it more of a pretentious movie than a proper game. [08/2015, p.53]

    This fairytale about the human journey to freedom is totally unfinished. It’s filled with technical issues and the gamplay is so terrible that even its great storyline can’t help the game at all.
