Baobabs Mausoleum Volume 1: Ovnifagos Don't Eat Flamingos is a very strange game, both boosted and busted by its own quirkiness. It's got some definite faults in its grab-bag of gameplay styles and settings, but there's still a macabre charm hiding underneath all of the jank that goes along with so seemingly-unclear of a vision.

The first episode of Baobabs Mausoleum, even though we can't recommend it because its lack of content, builds the beggining of something unique, special and singular. The journey of Watracio Walpurguis will be one to watch out for.

Another good way to play the psychedelic adventures of Watracio Walpurgis. A really fluid version of an episodic title that wins as its next parts are added, because a single chapter still knows little. In portable version is the best way to play this game.

Baobab's Mausoleum is an excentric experience mix of Twin Peaks, X-Files and some kind of burlesque. Watracio Walpurgis, our heroe, has a bright future ahead but maybe these aren't the best first steps.

undefined.There is hope, however, right there in the title: Baobabs Mausoleum is an episodic game, and while the first episode is aimless for the majority of the couple of hours it takes to get through it, the cliffhanger ending introduces actual stakes. Should future episodes take the time needed to flesh out the characters and give us the chance to explore Flamingo's Creek, the potential shown in the game's trailer might be realized.

At the end of the day, Baobabs Mausoleum is an odd trip down memory lane. It contains elements of classic titles presented in a way that makes sense within the genre
