Critic Reviews for Florence
Of course, with a great desire, the authors of the project can be accused of plagiarism, because a year before the game was released, the Brazilian blogger Rudy Mancuso released his famous video "Circle of Love". However, Florence has much more side meanings.

But, what is Florence? It's an evocation of the beauty, sadness and hope that comes from any human connection we make in our lives, whether with art, nature or another person. It's a succinct and incredibly successful exploration of moments you'll recognise from your own life, and the way it mirrors thoughts and feelings through small gameplay mechanics makes it one of the most affecting experiences we've enjoyed on Switch, or any other platform.
Florence is a love story, a story that merges video game and comic, capable of giving shape to a delicate and poetic narrative, but with an overwhelming emotional impact, which really leaves you speechless: at the end of this short story, you will therefore find yourself with a lump in your throat that would just like to melt into tears. The perfect synergy between impeccable visual construction and gameplay designed at the service of the plot gives life to a set that emphasizes the potential of the video game medium, exploring the potential of digital fiction.
