A rare Stadia exclusive presents a simple, touching story, matched by mechanics that are a touch too slight.

Lost Words: Beyond the Page tells a tender, emotional tale, but you'll find yourself wading through the fantastical and mechanical elements of its secondary one in order to reach its conclusion.

Sketchbook Games' narrative platform/puzzler is appropriate for all ages, but that doesn't stop it from going to some surprisingly dark places. Though the platforming and light puzzle solving are enjoyable (if none too challenging), the story and artwork are the stars of the show. Impatient players might want to stay away, but for those interested in a life affirming story about overcoming obstacles and learning to deal with regrets, Lost Words is a beautiful experience.

Lost Words is a touching tale with exceptionally grounded writing, but be ready to go through a middling execution in order to get the best out of it.
