The Night of the Rabbit, regardless of what it’s called and the few other minor complaints I had, is a triumph. It’s Daedalic once and for all proving that they are indeed capable of producing an adventure that can stand tall with the classics of the genre.
A traditional point-and-click adventure game set in a world inspired by children's story books. Most of the puzzles are well designed but there are also few illogical ones that can be really hard to figure out. With some extra polishing time those could have been avoided. [Aug 2013]
One of the most beautiful games I've played in my whole life, it is very noticeably made with a very low budget but the story itself is sublime.
However, has to be said; the game does have some frustrating puzzles so that's surely a downside.
One of the most charming games I've ever played. I really like the setting and the cast of charachters, and the music is memorable too. The story is... something. It's starts out rather basic, but it slowly builds up towards more mature themes and you can feel the tension in the last portion of the game. However, some aspect aren't really explored that well, and some puzzles are a bit cryptic, while the in-game helps aren't useful at all. But still, is an awesome game and a must-play for adventure games fans
The Night of the Rabbit is visually stunning, and will appeal greatly to fans of the adventure genre. It packs interesting characters and design ideas. Although there are some hiccups in pacing and puzzle design, the overall charm of the world makes it well worth a look.
The Night of the Rabbit still contains all of those classic "ah ha!" moments when you, at long last, cease to be dumbfounded, and the novelty of the magic spells surprisingly doesn't wear off, continuing to be implemented cleverly throughout the long experience. With a lot of patience, you could find yourself having a bloody good time.
Beautiful storytelling in a truly beautiful world! The puzzles and mechanics were not always as interesting as the surrounding characters, music, visuals and the atmosphere of the world, but it was well worth playing through. The puzzles might start feeling repetitive if you play through all at once, but over a few days, I was looking forward to coming back to it again :)
Might be worth a second playthrough, but was enjoyable enough the first time around.
Time to spend before the last Deponia game. The environment and characters are beautifully drawn and the whole looks quite adorable. However, the game has some annoyances: puzzles are sometimes hard and not much rewarding; a few achievements don't work and there is sometimes too much talk, but at least not that much like in Whispered World. The game sometimes slows down and seems to eat a lot of memory: I never thought I see 7GB usage on my poor 32-bit, 3 GB system.
This is a poor offering from Daedalic.
This game is a point-and-click puzzle/story game as are most of their games where you play as a young boy and a mysterious rabbit whose fates are intertwined. But first, you play as the boy and frankly he is annoying.
I died after the second puzzle because I was looking for a fruit and apparently the game incorrectly identifies acorns as a fruit and rose hips as something other than a fruit. The first puzzle required that you find a stick in a forest. One stick in a forest. And that was after passing by three other objects that would have worked just as well. Then you have to use that stick to remove a bush. That makes no sense.
In terms of pros, the game is visually interesting and clearly they spent a lot of time with the art director making it just right.
In terms of cons, the gameplay is slow and very specific to the point of failure. I found the premise of the first puzzle to be absurd and the solution to the second puzzle to be incorrect. The interface is awful. You quest book gives you information you shouldn't know and fails to record information you desperately need. The hotspots are humongous and never go away; you're going to be listening to the same poorly-done voice acting cue over and over and over again.
This title lacks the good game design elements you would expect for such an easy genre and fails to do any of it's homework making it for me a pass.
