Reviews for "Home Story: 1971"

Man, I loved the atmosphere of this game. Not because I like sad stories, but because everything fit together so well. The music, the graphics, and the flow all portrayed a melancholy bittersweetness that ended on the same note.

It also shows, albeit simply, how the sibling of a dead/missing child can be neglected by the parents, because of the intense grief. Such a tragic circumstance to happen to any family.

Game side, the puzzles were great (I also loved the shadow puzzle), although the ghost who changes the sandbox items needs to bug off ;).

All in all, a great experience. Wished it was longer, but it was amazing as it was.

Excellent! Do more!

Awesome, this cutting onions ninjas on my back.

Not bad at all! ...I'm not crying, you're crying...

I liked that you didn't use straight forward generic puzzles. The clock puzzle was by far my favorite, and the sand pit puzzle was good because it wasn't straight forward. Changing the sand puzzle made for a greater difficulty.

The story behind the game was great. I liked that it was told partially by finding the newspaper clipping. Excellent plot.

The music was very appropriate. The audio overall was great and added to the atmosphere. The graphics were great and I loved that the camera wasn't always stationary (I.E. the subtle shift when you first leave the room.)

This game was very well done. Adding to favorites, and you have 5 stars.
