Critic Reviews for Dordogne

As someone who derives real pleasure in admiring beautiful paintings, Dordogne ups the ante by letting me creatively interact with its gorgeous art. Even better, it layers a largely enjoyable tale on top of it. Like Mimi and Nora’s relationship, there are some bumps to overcome, but good times await those willing to work through them.

Dordogne is a delight. A picturesque and poignant journey that will touch your memories and your heart in equal measure.

With Dordogne, the trend of games that explore the past through memories, objects, and nostalgia continues to expand. The game is crafted with rare elegance and takes time to immerse us fully as we navigate between the adult presence of Mimi and the memories of a summer spent in Dordogne. While there could have been better utilization of the medium by enhancing the gameplay interactions, Dordogne offers a beautiful, bittersweet experience. Highly recommended, especially if you have your own cherished objects that transport you back to your childhood.

Dordogne, the first game of Un Je Ne Sais Quoi, invites players to connect with their inner child in a colorful world that looks like something out of the best of tales.

Intense, detailed and capable of telling a story that goes far beyond expectations, Dordogne is a story that strikes the soul, thanks to an excellent play system. Must have absolutely.

Dordogne is a gentle and comfortable adventure that manages to capture an authentic quality. The intriguing narrative threads are thoughtfully implemented to allow you to tie strands together. Gameplay aspects are rudimentary and at times feel unnecessary, however, they do help make the jaw-dropping environments feel alive. While at times you may wish that Mimi could run, that thought seems to dissipate as you take in the beautiful surroundings. Although this is not for everyone, those who enjoy narrative-driven games will fall in love with Dordogne.

It’s tempting to call it a shame—a waste, even—that a game that looks so unlike any other doesn’t have much going for it in the way of dialogue or character study. But, then, stories aren’t just limited to the things people say. And, of course, a story centered on the tenuous nature of human memory would be messier than that—rendered in imprecise arrays, interrupted by blank space, and framed in rough edges. Which is to say, a bit like watercolor.
