Critic Reviews for Hindsight

A daughter packs away her dead mother's things - and explores their life together and apart.

Have some high points, but they soon give way to glaring faults. Not the worst, but difficult to recommend.

Hindsight is a short and compelling adventure about memories and identity. When mechanics, storytelling and rhythm blends together, Joel McDonald's game is brilliant and gives wonderful perspective about our relationship with our past and with the people we love. On the other hand, the sleek and very keen mechanic which the game is based on, sometimes feels like nothing more than an aesthetic exercise and some bits of the game are less entertaining and meaningful.

Hindsight struggles to find a place within traditional expectations of a video game, but aside from some finicky controls, it achieves what it sets out to do. It’s up to you to decide if that journey sounds like a worthwhile endeavor.

Hindsight offers an experience lasting only a few hours, but with a strong emotional value.

Hindsight does what it does with technical and artistic aplomb. The story is eloquent, mature and moving, and the core mechanic of diving into objects creates perfect madeleine moments that boost the experience beyond many other story games. It only asks for a few hours of your time and repays the investment generously.

That isn’t to say that Hindsight is by any means a bad game. The story is excellent, the art is fantastic, and a lot of people are going to relate to its message. However, if you’re going into the game thinking that it is going to be the next big breakout indie of the year, then you might come away a little disappointed.

As its name suggests, Hindsight is a fascinating journey in a story of memories and self awareness. With its touching soundtrack, the experience is a delicate way of telling us a story of an ordinary person in an ordinary world, and this is what makes the game so close and relatable.
