Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey
Top Critic Average

Were it not for the lack of resources and having to push the game out, I can honestly say that Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey could have been a very good game, though not without the known issues of the tediously slow movement. All in all, if you want to play through an interesting story with a compelling core cast of characters, masterfully voice acted, then you could do a lot worse than Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey.
That all being said, what a wonderful first release from Salix Games. It may not have been overly hard to play, perhaps missing a few more side missions or puzzles and need refining of a few technical issues but it was a joy to play especially with the intriguing twist to finish the game. For any fans of historical games or point and click adventures, I'm sure you will enjoy this game as much as I did and I genuinely look forward to what they will release in the future.
Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey has all the hallmarks of a well acted and mysterious adventure game but is held back terribly by a lack of polished design and a glut of technical shortcomings. Giving no hint of what can be interacted with until you've moved your painfully slow avatar close by leads to a lot of slow wandering around, while attempts at combat gameplay fall flat and take time and momentum from the building narrative.
