    Tim Burton-esce story and visuals. I don't really need anything more to be a fan, but the gameplay is decent enough to make it a worthwhile experience. Production value feels very high, especially with the music. I'd like to see more games like these.

    I played Lost in Random in the PlayStation 5 version, with the console connected to a 43 '' Samsung Crystal UHD 4K 2021 43AU9070, thanks to a code provided to me by the game's distributor.

    A little big game, a bizarre adventure, steeped in friendship, with a Gothic-Burtonian flavor. Lost in Random has some flaws that are the son of its independent nature, well masked by the narrative and by some visual gimmicks that hide its technical limits. A particular combat system, which mixes elements already seen but giving it a unique character and a world to explore full of characters, secondary missions and secrets. A little too long and some situations that are repeated a little too often do not, however, undermine the general experience, which will make you curiously advance towards the discovery of your destiny.

    The art style, the gameplay, the story, and the length of game are all a pleasant surprise - totally worth the money and my fave from 2021. One mark deducted for minor bugs. It’s such a shame that this game was not promoted - it’s an artwork!

The game pushes on quite thrilling, intriguing plot while staying true to the traditions of storytelling (e.g. the story is told by the narrator, the protagonist is followed by her trusty companion, every character is charismatically whimsical in their own, unique way). The story is accompanied by a worthy soundtrack that fits the game’s dark fairytale vibe quite perfectly. Lost in Random’s world is divided into six locations, the cities of Random, a gothic queendom run by its despotic Queen. The player starts in the first one, Onecroft, and is tasked to traverse the game’s world to reach Sixtopia, the sixth and last town, the capital of Random, in order to find someone Even, the protagonist, is seeking for. The game uses free-roam mechanic, which means that each location is able to be explored freely until the player reaches the point in the main story where they travel to the next one. Numerous side quests are found while stranding around Random, though not so much of them are actually worth completing. Early in the game, Even encounters Dicey, an anthropomorphic die who is important to both narrative and gameplay. Being a worthy representative of the genre, Lost in Random successfully balances its gameplay between combat and environmental puzzles, with the former explicitly being its disadvantage. The combat is repetitive, with your enemies generally being identical (or almost identical) from fight to fight, leaving you with the same tactics, feelings, experience. Given the specifics of Even’s combat abilities, the battles are not only repetitive, but also very time-consuming. All these consequences make the combat more and more monotonous, tedious and frustrating as the game moves on. It’s also necessary to mention that while Lost in Random’s art style definitely is stunning, the actual graphics of the game definitely are of a poor quality (the game looks more like a PS3 title). Given PS5 version looks much better, according to the footage everyone may find on the Net, it’s a fine example of how underestimation of older consoles (intentional or not) may lead to an absolute absurd, when the developers hold their new titles back, even if they are obviously not that pretentious and might run on current-gen without major compromises, probably in order to ensure their new breakthrough-in-graphics game won’t explode the ‘outdated’ hardware.

    Lost in Random basically accomplishes evereything it needs to: it tells an intriguing and original story that mixes innovative gameplay systems, it is not afraid to gamble and it pays off in almost every little thing. This is a game worth considering, both for how fun it is and how interesting it manages to remain.

    Lost in Random offers a highly enjoyable experience with rich, dynamic gameplay and an interesting plot. While it's weighed down by repetitive fetch quests and some bugs, it's easily still one of the most charming games I've played so far.
