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.
Unforeseen Incidents is fun romp with an interesting plot that will draw you in and enjoyable characters to go around. If you're a fan of traditional adventure games, and are looking for a fun experience, Unforeseen Incidents will be fun game for you to explore while uncovering the secrets hidden within Yelltown.
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.
