It’s been a long time since the announcement and first hands-on of Moasic Mask Studio‘s point-and-clicker Heaven’s Hope, but the game is finally here on digital and retail shelves.
It was 2013 at Gamescom that I first got a glimpse of this game when it didn’t have a publisher yet, but with German EuroVideo Medien GmbH, this problem is a thing of the past. For those who’re not German, you can still get the retail box complete with soundtrack and digital artbook, as it includes both English and German voice acting, just like the Steam version.
Even if I still find the animations of characters rather choppy and don’t see any unique puzzles yet, the gothic hand-drawn background visuals are nice to look at, while the voice acting is quite good as well. Touching subject matters like the Inquisition in a humorous way sets the game apart from other genre competitors, especially with the main character Talorel being a fallen angel who behaves a bit like Monkey Island‘s anti-hero Guybrush Threepwood. If the dialogues are funny enough and the religious message doesn’t come across as forced, this could very well be a memorable mix of 19th century realism and fantasy.

Using the Amazon link and buying the product also helps ;).
The visuals ARE beautiful. I don’t PC game, but this looks like a game that would feel like you are walking right through art. Thanks for sharing!
Great that you liked it. I’m going to write a review in the near future, so expect even more art screenshots ;).
Oh, and thanks for following my blog. It has been a bit quiet lately due to real life, job matters, but there will be more beautiful-looking games covered :).
It’s fun reading about new games. I could never buy all the ones I see people writing about, nor would I have enough time to play them, but it’s fun seeing screenshots and info about them on bloggers’ posts.
If I look at the physical shelves full of games and at my digital library, it’s also quite difficult to imagine playing through all these games AND the new releases. Writing news about them can help make people aware of all the great titles one might not be able to cover in reviews due to time management. So it’s great that you have fun reading about them this way :).
It’s fun! I do enjoy seeing small clips from the games too. I mean I know twitch exists but that’s too much of a time investment haha.
Yes, watching a game in motion can be quite good to get a feel of the game. I’m not a big fan of Twitch or YouTubers myself, as I want to experience the games on my own without anyone talking. Although it’s quite good if you’re stuck on a particularly tricky title ;).
