Whateverland: Prologue

Whateverland: Prologue

This is a great Demo that has made me very interested in donating to the Kickstarter and I strongly hope it succeeds as I would love to see the full game. The art style, gameplay mechanics and quirky writing are very good for a teaser, really appeals to my weird sense of humour. It reminds me a lot of Pinstripe, another dark comedy indie game I love but this game seems to offer more replay value.

My two biggest complaints are 1) the Voice Acting needs improving, the voices for the supporting characters are fine enough they have a fitting quirkiness to them but the Voice of the main character is honestly quite dull, since this is just a demo for the Kickstarter it’s understandable, I just hope final version has better voice and 2) I was stuck at the Pickpocketing segment as no matter what buttons I pressed I couldn’t return the pick I had selected to replace it with one I needed, maybe I missed something and if so would apreciate it if someone told me, I hope this mechanic becomes more understandable how to use in full release.

This game introduction episode, imo, is charming and witty.

Being a free Prologue, this is obviously a short enticement for the full game.

Exploring the area, mechanics, design, dialogue, acting, story and puzzles were fun, smooth and a really good incentive to complete the adventure.

I found the characters to be delightful and already, am invested in them and the storyline.

My second run-thru, to complete the achievements, was quick, with the skip scene abilities, except for some scenes, and the alternate dialogues were interesting.
