    Reviewing a game like Embracelet is difficult. It can be hard to convey the allure of something so simple, or the emotional impact of such a calm, quiet game. I think the only way to truly explain it is to describe the moment of watching the credits roll by. I felt honest joy for the characters. After four hours, I cared about them. I felt a deep sense of sadness that my time with them was over. I wanted to stay in this world. Not because there was some grand adventure to be had, but because I wanted to keep spending time with these characters. I wanted to see where their lives would take them. Embracelet is a brief glimpse into a beautiful world, and while I’m sad it's over, I’m glad I was able to be part of it while I could.

    Embracelet is a beautiful and emotional puzzle game with a focus on a story that explores maturity, identity and responsibility, both as an individual and as a global community.

    Who would’ve thought that a Norwegian island far, far north could be so idyllic and memorable?

    It’s a bit point-and-click adventure, a bit puzzle game, and a bit walking simulator. The story takes you on a real ride, but the gameplay itself is rather relaxed. As long as you’re not expecting too much on the mechanical end of things, you’ll probably find yourself as engrossed in Embracelet as I was.

    An adventure that doesn’t stand out in anyway. Embracelet isn’t buggy, broken or busted, but it is decidedly average.

Everything was done with the aim of simplifying all the work as much as possible and this should not be questioned. Working in games is an arduous challenge, always requiring a lot of knowledge and time. Now imagine doing it all by yourself? Using tools intelligently and paying more attention to key factors such as plot and art, Mattis managed to make a very beautiful adventure that warms anyone's heart, especially at the end, making me feel an immense curiosity in knowing the trajectory of such striking.
