Critic Reviews for Unforeseen Incidents

Unforeseen Incidents has its charms. It looks great, and some of the puzzles are genuine fun. And even though Harper is irritating, he's well-intentioned and a fairly good protagonist. The most serious issue for me is the loading time between screens and how slowly Harper walks.

Overall, Unforeseen Incidents occasionally stumbles in its accessibility through bugs or difficulty, but its story, humor, and art make it a great time piecing together clues in the world that Backwoods Entertainment has created. It might not have reinvented the genre, but given the opportunity, I'd grab a beer with Harper in this game or—we can hope—the next.

Overall, Unforeseen Incidents is an impressive traditional adventure game that feels right at home on the Switch. Those who already own the title on PC won't be missing anything if they ignore this release, but for Switch users who missed the title's launch in 2018 this is a good chance to pick it up.
