Du Lac & Fey is a game I’d recommend anyone play as the story is one of the best I’ve seen in a point & click for a long time. But several patches deep, it’s still ruined by some irritating, occasionally game-breaking glitches. I don’t know if Du Lac & Fey will ever be truly fixed or how much support the game will continue to receive, but I’m rooting for Salix Games to get it right. This game deserves an audience and is a series which must be allowed to continue, but in its current state, sadly, many of these issues are difficult to look past.
A polished title, in which each one of the pieces fits perfectly to create a beautiful puzzle, which we will enjoy completing during many hours of play.

Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey isn't perfect, but it's a really interesting and exciting narrative adventure game with a talking dog! If you're yearning for a more narrative-focused and linear story to play through, in the wake of the demise of Telltale Games, then this is a game which will easily fill that void for you. As you flip between the three protagonists, you'll be involved with murder, sex, prostitution, magic, talking to animals, and getting drunk. Sure, the interaction you'll personally have isn't as much as a standard point-and-click adventure game, with an inventory and lots of puzzles, but the main focus here is the story and I believe the developers have delivered it in a great way.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey to anyone who wants to play a solid adventure game, but it's definitely worth getting when it's on sale.
Evaluated solely by its presentation quality, Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey is a solid enough point and click adventure, but it is sadly marred by technical issues and by a general lack of engaging puzzle solving.
