The game had horrible performance drops (from over 60 FPS to under 30 FPS) during several sections, which led to a really sloggy experience during those parts. Besides that. it's a fantastic audio visual experience that you can navigate in a few hours; just wish the game was more optimized throughout.
What a weird game. It's barely a game at all, with simplistic Simon Says boss fights and extremely basic platforming. However, it has a incredible atmosphere and aesthetic. It's more of an experience than anything.
The story is about a boy who lives in the shadow of his uncle and must discover who he really is. The lesson of the game is worthwhile, but he is a bit of a Gary Stu. That said, the voicework, visuals, and soundtrack are incredible. Also only clocks it at ~4 hours long.
Worth the experience, but not sure it'll leave a lasting impression.
Un auténtico orgasmo visual y sonoro. Bizarrada de esas que de vez en cuando salen, no se dice nada de ellas y resulta que esconden una pequeña joya.
No esperes un juego como tal. El verdadero disfrute de The Artful Escape comienza cuando aceptas lo raro que te ofrece, lo vives y lo asumes como normal. Un caramelito sin duda.
