    It's the kind of experience that, like Gone Home, people will dismiss for lacking action or having a narrative that doesn't treat its players like idiots, but it's also the kind of game that shows that the games industry is growing up and pushing the limits of what can be achieved given the freedom and resources to be properly creative.

    Tengami is a game that you need to experience. The lush environments, interesting gameplay and the clever uses of the pop-up book world deserve recognition. It is a short game, no doubt about that, but that grin on my face never faded for a moment.

    Overall, Tengami is unashamedly the game it wants to be and there is little compromise to players that might not get it.

    Tengami is a decent way to spend a soothing afternoon, but overall left me wanting more from what was there.

    It's one of those games that you'll enjoy only if you can appreciate the art behind the gameplay, as the latter doesn't have much to offer.

    My dissatisfaction and yearning for more is only testament to its potential for greatness. The visuals are stunning and the soundtrack and ambience is completely and utterly mesmerising. This game is really good and I just wanted more: more puzzles, more of the world and more of that amazing music. It’s such a shame really, that this game's biggest drawback is that it’s so good.
