    I did the demo on this. I admit, the more I played the more I enjoyed it. Interesting story,
    beautiful graphics.

    Light and Airy
    Sunny Sunny Sunny Sunny
     
    BASED ON DEMO
    N.B. No HOs In This Game

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS
    Everything about this game is light. The music in particular seems to float in the air, a series of stringed instruments plucked with a delicate touch. The graphics focus on a fragile beauty that is pastel and thin, and eerily magical. So even while it is a story of war and disharmony between races, it is also a story of love conquering all, a romance in the traditional sense.

    SIGHTS & SOUNDS
    The imagery abounds with fantastical flowers and animals, delightfully imagined and rendered. The detail is wonderful, the brushstrokes clear and light, and the overall impression is of delicacy. This is the world outside the one we know, and we must adjust to this strange and lovely forest. The voiceovers in this game match the rest of the art in quality, and nothing can match the music for beauty.
    WHAT’S HAPPENING
    These love sick kids have got it tough. They are of different races – our character’s human, and Aurelio is a felize, a shape-shifting cat/human with magical abilities. We have fallen in love with his human form, but the felize and their magic have been prohibited in the human world.
     
    An unhappy encounter leaves Aurelio wounded and before we can evade capture by the humans, the felize people drag Aurelio off to their world. We seek a healer’s help to follow him there.
     
    MAKING PROGRESS
    Well, puzzles, puzzles and more puzzles. There is a lot of adventure-style tasks to be completed too, but it is the puzzles that characterise the game. These are new or newly-devised, in keeping with the tone of the game. I didn’t find any of them especially hard.

    Hint is directional, and will keep directing you till you get to the right place, without penalty. There is a journal with story and objectives, and an interactive jump map.

    We have a Potion Pot that allows us to whip up magical potions on the go, with all the devices we need, and a recipe book to instruct us about ingredients.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS
    I didn’t find anything in the CE that I thought justified the extra cost. There are the usual items, of course, but nothing that screamed “buy me!”, and I haven’t changed my mind after trialling this.

    As an SE, this is a definite buy and makes a nice change, being light and airy compared to most games, but while beautiful, not exactly cute.

    I recommend this game!
