Critic Reviews for Torn Away

Torn Away is a peculiar game. Numerous technical issues do their determined best to spoil an otherwise powerful narrative; one that is elegant in its simplicity. Those haphazard controls, visual limitations, and laughable stealth sections will succeed in turning many players away, but, if you manage to put up with them, you'll find that Asya's tale is one to relish.

Torn Away mixes beautiful hand-drawn aesthetics with the grim story of a little girl trying to survive a war and make it home. The game excels at establishing tone and getting the player to feel a sense of connection to the main character, Asya, through heartfelt character interactions and mini-games. While the brutal story beats hit hard at the beginning of the game, they lose some of their steam towards the end when you begin to expect them.

Torn Away has been an unforgettable experience, it managed to generate deep emotions and feelings in me, it made me grateful that I never had to live a national conflict like the one that little Asya had to go through and feel happy about the people around me in my day to day.

Torn Away, with its gut wrenching narrative and beautifully grim graphics, is the new gold standard for visual novel-based video games.

Despite having a simple gameplay, Torn Away has an incredibly told story that makes it go through an intense experience in its almost five hours of gameplay. An excellent narrative with a very well built main character.

Torn Away is a really impactful experience that is definitely worth playing. It's not the most interesting gameplay, but the story alone makes it an amazing game that is definitely worth buying.

Torn Away is a narrative-focused game that explores some very difficult historical moments through the eyes of a child. Asya is a strong protagonist and the game works hard to give her interesting things to do from a gameplay perspective. Neither the platforming nor the puzzles sequences are hard to complete and most of the mechanics are familiar.

War is a difficult subject to cover, and unfortunately Torn Away blunders on all aspects. You start feeling sad more for how bad the game is than what it’s about.
