She Remembered Caterpillars
Beautiful, unsettling, challenging. The fungal growths in it are cute little creatures rather than mushrooms (which are horrible). What's not to like?
It is lovely, though, and one of the friendliest, warmest logic puzzlers I’ve played.
Jumpsuit clearly put a lot of effort and ingenuity to work to create an elegant and challenging experience.
Despite some issues in blending its story together with the rest of the experience, She Remembered Caterpillars is still a highly enjoyable puzzle game, one that clearly had a lot of hard work put into every area possible in order to create something so simple yet elegant and challenging.
Challenging without being stressful, She Remembered Caterpillars is an ideal game for shutting out the world and mapping out all the paths to victory.
She Remembered Caterpillars is a beautiful puzzle beset with gorgeous art and music and a somewhat frustrating difficulty curve.
She Remembered Caterpillars is a good puzzle game with the right amount of complexity and difficulty, but it is dragged down by it's undeserved grief and emotionally shallow overtones.
It's a great shame then that these moments of enchanting brilliance are completely at odds with gameplay that quickly becomes off-puttingly frustrating. The addition of some sort of hint system would certainly broaden the appeal, but as it stands this is likely to appeal to only the most hardcore of puzzle fans. A game that masters the intricate balance between challenge and fun is a beautiful thing, so it's unfortunate that a beautiful game like She Remembered Caterpillars falls squarely on the less favourable side of that equation.
She Remembered Caterpillars is a game of impeccable design and gorgeous art, with almost no missteps to speak of. With all the games to choose from these days, don't let this one slip by.
She Remembered Caterpillars' vague story sabotages an otherwise well thought out game idea.
