Questioning if games could look like art shouldn’t be a concern anymore, and if one considers the hand-painted watercolor visuals of this title, it should be the final nail into the coffin of conservative anti-gaming thinking. The story about Teku, a young man who is out to rescue his tribe’s shaman from an evil clan, might be simple, but this shouldn’t be a major concern when playing a game this beautiful with a South-American soundtrack that is just as impressively different from other titles.
Using Teku’s left hand that is a candle to drive away enemies or shine light into dark corners of a level already shows that this isn’t your typical point-and-click adventure game. It might have lots of puzzles, but it also has a few tricky platformer sections, so people who can’t cope with frustration should better be prepared. Still, it would be shame to skip a title with such vibrant levels full of small details, as each screen is very similar to an amazing painting.
The game is now available on PC with a 10% discount that will last until November 18, 6:59 PM UTC. Of course there’s also the German retail version to buy as well.
