Whispers of a Machine is a smart point-and-click that elevates its spotty lore with a great script and an excellent, if underused, augmentation system.

Whispers of a Machine is an approachable point and click adventure. The story is pretty interesting and the main character, as well as few side characters, are well-crafted too. It falls shy of the best examples of the genre, but Whispers of a Machine isn't far off the mark from being considered great.

This is a good adventure game! It’s actually an incredibly clever adventure game doing lots of very subtle smart things! It has its issues, but don’t we all.

Whispers of a Machine is a point & click that does not change the genre, but it brings a little more with its system of choices influencing the character of Vera, and the Azur that adapts according to them. Even if the proposed survey remains classic, the mysteries that compose it are complex enough to solicit your brain. If you are a fan of science fiction and this kind of game, it would be a shame to miss the investigation that offers this adventure.

Whispers of a Machine tells a fascinating post-cyberpunk story, where the destiny of the world is decided in the streets of a tiny suburban town. The writing is brilliant, as tense as only a good thriller can be, while the investigation is always stimulating, supported by good gameplay ideas and clever puzzles.

It’s short, sweet, and although there is the promise for more, is ultimately rewarding.

Whispers of a Machine is a puzzling enigma, a fascinating story, and a bit of an ugly beast, but well worth your time.

With a promising premise and great voice acting, Whispers of a Machine starts out on the right foot but is brought down by poor puzzle design and shallow writing.
