"It’s refreshing to play an indie adventure game that’s inspired by the likes of Broken Sword and Gabriel Knight, and not every LucasArts or Sierra game." - GamersPack

"A classic-styled point-and-click adventure that is a genuinely fun experience but at three hours of play time just isn’t given enough time to fully spread its wings." - Adventure Gamers
