Lost Words: Beyond the Page
Top Critic Average
Developer: Sketchbook Games
Publisher: Modus Games
Genres: Adventure, Art, Interactive Story, Platformer
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.
