Clifftop Games' Whispers of a Machine is a capable, clever, and ambitious adventure game, but still feels like a niche experience lacking wide appeal.
The biggest reason I personally love Whispers is because of its themes. Not only does the game shock players fairly quickly, it then drops a proverbial bomb on them. Players are exposed to themes of creation, technology, religion, terrorism, and relationships. And the way all of these topics are woven into the story is actually quite brilliant. In fact, it is done well enough that I was horrified at the very idea of this game becoming a reality in the future.
While it won’t take you more than a few hours and falters a little with its supporting cast, the unusual approach to puzzle-solving in Whispers of a Machine ensure there’s enough replay value to make a return worthwhile.
Whispers of a Machine is an original graphic adventure in which the decision making and the variety of dialogues allow a quite wide range of replayability. Although the story hooks and catches, it does not know how to lead to a correct outcome and ends up leaving us a little cold. The cast of voices is very striking and with correct intonations. A game to keep in mind even though it could have been better.

Whispers of a Machine is successful in telling an engaging story and adding some interesting new elements to an old point and click gameplay. Nevertheless, several issues like unfair puzzles, confusing moments, and lack of an eye-catching design ruin part of our experience.

A very strong point-and-click mystery title that excels in every area, and where each element subtly complements the short but bittersweet narrative.
True to its name, Whispers of a Machine does exactly that: it whispers. Rather than "shouting," with flashy audio-visuals, cool action, and in-your-face storytelling, it uses the humble, grey-haired Adventure Game Studio, to offer something that's far more subtle in its approach. Clifftop Games creation is a simple, yet stunningly well-written, immersive, and all around fun point-and-click adventure game, with a gripping sci-fi plot, and an unwavering focus in its flawless, detective-style gameplay loop. Currently just a hidden gem, this must-have needs you, fellow adventure fan, to spread the word…
Whispers of a Machine is a puzzling enigma, a fascinating story, and a bit of an ugly beast, but well worth your time.
