Critic Reviews for Freud's Bones

Freud's Bones offers a brilliant take on psychoanalysis in the form of a point and click story driven adventure. The sessions with the patients are great, interesting and depict the complexity of human nature, while the other gameplay mechanics are sometimes a bit clumsy. Overall the storytelling is compelling, authentic, and it's worth the 5 hours trip, even if the game feels sometimes unbalanced and chaotic.

There will always be a place for games like Freud's Bones, which have some imperfections, yes, but are also daring and willing to explore new themes. Fortuna Imperatore's debut game takes some considerable risks, such as having to explain psychotherapy to the player in order for him to untangle the main mechanics, but it hits the mark and churns out one of the most interesting systems of recent times. Not everything else is at the same level, but there is always a clear sense of the desire not to go down paths already taken by others: from a forerunner like Freud, one could not expect anything else.

Ultimately, Freud's Bones is a successful experiment, despite a downsizing of its ambitions compared to the initial project. The dynamics proposed by the point &click adventure make up a coherent and immediately accessible framework, which effectively guides players to discover sigmund Freud's inner world.
