The Whispered World

The Whispered World is a very charming German-developed point-and-click adventure game set to release... sometime this year? I found it out through its demo, which was released today and I'm downloading it as we speak.

I'm generally against trends, but I've come to love the Victorian-storybook aesthetic that's taken the indie gaming world by storm, with games like Braid, Lucidity, Machinarium, Professor Layton and so on and on.

The art style reminds me of some of the Worms series. Before it went all 3D and rubbish, of course.

A crossed-arms watson, it appears. Guess he figures it's elementary that the graphics aren't the most charming he's seen. Wonder where he got it from....

It wasn't that bad, I liked it. Besides, there's a destructable world. Who cares about art styles when you can just blow it all up any way?

I've been following this game for a few months now. Unfortunately, there weren't many updates, especially when it comes to the release date. What we can see of the game does indeed look awesome. More adventure games should be done in this manner.
