  • A more retro-than-typical style of interface, cheeky humor, and great voice acting helps to lift this adventure up

    I remain pretty astounded that after crashing and burning hard for quite a long time the classic point-and-click adventure has returned with a vengeance. An unfortunate side effect of that is that it has gotten to be a bit of a challenge to separate the wheat from the chaff, especially since there’s so much more to the genre than merely having a good overall look and feel. Lucy Dreaming, more than most, took some real risks in just how retro its look and feel are, and I’m glad that the overall quality of the experience helps to ease any concerns I initially had about its very old-school retro interface. What quickly shines through is that the story and writing in general is quite clever, and the follow-up good news is that the voice acting really helps to make the most of the game’s humor. Throw in the fact that it makes you work a bit to progress, but not typically have to figure out some ridiculously obtuse puzzle in order to proceed, and among its brethren it shines as one of the better old-school takes on the genre for “vintage” adventure fans.
