Old Man's Journey is a simple game that might make you cry if you have any emotions left in you. It's cheap, beautiful and only takes 2 hours to complete.

In short, Old Man’s Journey is a pleasant meander through an old man’s life and the town he lives in. It’s a masterclass in visual storytelling one which draws out emotion from every player. This touching tale is a path that deserves to be trodden by all gamers.
Old Man’s Journey is an emotional, narrative-less experience in which you must guide an ‘Old Man’ as he embarks on a trip based on the mysterious letter he received in the post. Although the game has one core mechanic – the raising and lowering of hills – the game changes things around by introducing hazards and various other mechanics which will make you think. The whole game looks and sounds beautiful with an amazing art style and a pleasant soundtrack which combinate into an emotional story of discovery, loss, and regret.
Old Man's Journey is a gorgeous game, with an art style that makes it seem as if you are playing a gorgeous storybook come to life.
Old Man's Journey proposes a unique experience that features an interesting plot, a magnificent visual component and a series of challenges that will quickly conquer the player. While its lifespan my feel short and its price a bit too steep, Old Man's Journey is another game that is more than worthy of an opportunity and which deserves its place within the Nintendo Switch.

Old Man's life story is short but deep. It is unique experience with handcrafted, pressure-free puzzles.

It deserves to be in an art museum, where it would fare much better and receive more acclaim.
Old Man's Journey is a brilliant game that I definitely recommend you play on Switch. It's a gorgeous release with clever puzzles that are easy to solve and an overall interesting story that will keep you interested until the end. I'm glad that Broken Rules decided to bring this game to Nintendo's console and I look forward to seeing what the studio will bring us next.
Old Man's Journey is such a gorgeous looking title, complete with a beautiful soundtrack. Those aspects are then draped over a moderately engaging puzzle idea, and comes with a story that aims to be touching, but will leave many feeling either apathetic to the theme, or actually frustrated by the progression of the old man's life and foolish choices. It also ends extremely quickly with nothing to come back to after. It will pass and fade away quicker than it should, but deserves to receive an expanded sequel (or prequel, perhaps?).
