Heaven's Vault is rough around the edges, but its sense of discovery and self-fulfillment are unparalleled thanks to its commitment to player agency and its unique language-translation mechanic.
My final score for Heaven's Vault is a 9 out of 10, and I'm only taking off the point for some small issues like the slow movement and the minor issue I have with map navigation. Other than that, I adore this game. Inkle studios has really impressed me with this release and I look forward to exploring more of their games in the future.
Heaven’s Vault is a flawed experience, with the flaws jumping out early and persisting until the end of the story. But there’s way too many other things bundled into this package to simply ignore them on that premise alone. I wasn’t expecting to like Heaven’s Vault as much as I did, but it’s honestly one of the more enjoyable games I’ve had the pleasure of going through so far this year.
Heaven's Vault communicates the beauty of assigning meaning to symbols, and thus the people who wrote them.
Heaven's Vault manages to make me look forward to learning a new language, which is something I honestly never thought a game could do.
Heaven's Vault is an unusual game about exploring ruins of ancient civilizations and learning their language. It's easily described as an 'archaeologist-linguist simulator', which has interesting plot, many nice dialogs and tons of moons to visit. Get ready for great and memorable adventure!
