An All Hallows Tale
An All Hallows Tale
Short point and click animated adventure about a little girl who lost her teddy bear - Help her RIP. The present for finding the bear is a Halloween greeting card wishing you all the best.
This is one of those game that when finished you stop for a second and ask yourself, what have I just played. It has really good graphics, done in 3d unity engine, nice voice acting and a decent storyline. Intended to be more cute than creepy, if creepy at all. Well, not sure about you, but the ending is pretty creepy to me. The girl who was asking you to help her in finding her teddy bear appears to be dead, and that's why she's been living a a world of ghosts. That explains all things we used to see and creatures we met from the start, the twisted room, echoed sounds and voices, monsters, ghosts and whatnot. She could have still lived in some fantasy world like in a fairy tale, or she could have been dreaming the whole time, but no. A big 'RIP' sign on the monument in the final scene doubtlessly concludes that she was dead all the time and that finally she can go back to 'sleep', which IS quite creepy after all, but not in a scary way.
The game is very simple, and easy to play. What you do is simply follow the in-game dialogs which are basically instructing your next move. Than you click on whatever comes next, and at two occasions you get two pick one out of two served questions. If picked wrong, the game ends leaving you the opportunity for a retry. Fortunately, if you had to retry, you just pick up where you were left off the last time, which is nice. The gameplay is so simple, that I would look at this game as an interactive animation which lasts for about 5 minutes.
Despite everything said, this is rather nice and well-animated game, but super super short, yet it's still worth 5 minutes of your attention, but nothing like worth coming back for more.
crazy : creepy? yes, sort of. scary? well, no, not really.
