Critic Reviews for The Lion's Song: Episode 1 - Silence

While a brief running time results in less emotional investment than its developers probably intended, The Lion’s Song: Episode 1 – Silence is still a novel diversion for adventure game fans that costs nothing to try out.

It is tough to get a real feel for the way that The Lion’s Song will continue to play out through only one episode, but Silence still serves as a great introductory chapter. The look and gameplay are firmly rooted in the retro style common for its genre, but it is backed with an artful writing style that captures the essence of the creative process well.

The Lion's Song: Episode 1 - Silence is poignant and beautiful, although extremely short and linear. The growing friendship between two strangers separated by hundreds of miles in the early age of the phone is compelling, and the musical elements offer a unique flavour to the narrative. While quite short and not especially mechanically deep, it's still an emotional experience well worth the time it takes.

All things considered, The Lion’s Song debut episode isn’t bad, just lacking. I’m hopeful that the next episodes will be a bit more interesting, and I would certainly be willing to give the next one a try once it releases on Steam.
