I didn’t have fun with Viviette. The puzzles lacked any logical answers, and there was little motivation to explore. The story lacked emphatic moments and failed to entice me to struggle through the rough points. There was an effective crafting of terror, but no pay off with that lone success either.
Nairi: Tower of Shirin Review
While I think Nairi: Tower of Shirin had a potential to be a perfectly-scored game, I have to dock enough points to keep it just below it. Subject yourself to the setback of an unsatisfactory ending but experience an otherwise extraordinary graphic adventure. I highly recommend you to join Nairi and Rex on their journey, and hope that I get to join them on a sequel very soon!
Genuine artistry is hard to come by. Many developers pour their hearts and souls into their work and unfortunately, things often get lost in translation. However, with Nomada Studio’s Gris, everything just seems to fall into place, while brilliantly conveying a powerful message about dealing with loss and reconciling with the past.
