Certainly an adventure game with a bit of a dark and humorous turn on classic fairy tale tropes isn’t bad to work with as a base, and I think that’s the greatest strength of Anna’s Quest. The problem is, especially in light of so many outstanding point-and-click style indie adventures being out there, outside of the story and characters too many elements simply aren’t as polished or fresh. The interface can be a bit cumbersome amongst its brethren, some of its puzzles perhaps a bit too drawn out, and just lacking in that sort of magic touch that brings the game together in a way that inspires exuberance when describing it. Perhaps earlier in the Switch lifespan it could have been more of a force, but at this stage it just falls a bit flat.
