Is it just me or does the protagonist look like Inspector Gadget?

Seems like the English team never expected me to rub the flaming peppers all over the flammable objects in my inventory.

Fools.

Happy you guys did this. The art style is fantastic.

Ryan: That is what fuckin' kills me about adventure games
Ryan: "Oh here's this obvious thing that I obviously need sitting right here"
Ryan: "Now I need to go through this goofy, insane, convoluted path [..] so I can get this thing I need for later"
Vinny: ...you mean adventure games?
Ryan: ...yeah...yeah I guess that's exactly what I mean.

Ryan Davis' only problem with Adventure Games is the 'Adventure' part.

Man voice acting and writing are not great in this game.

Posted by AlexanderSheen

The guy sounds like Jeff Green. Weird.

Loving all the adventure game quick looks. The voice acting is serviceable for the most part, but there are definitely a bunch of times where it is way off. I had fun with it despite that, although I'll admit that I'm not the hardest person to please when it comes to adventure games.

If only the voice acting was better. I can't stand these voices.

Posted by Dunsky5

It sucks that most of your time will be subjected to par writing and hit and miss voice acting when the game itself looks so good.

Now I want to watch My Neighbour Totoro or Howl's Moving Castle again. Also, these characters talk kinda weirdly and stilted.

Don't think I want to play this :( After the book of unwritten tales i just can't play this

Boooo assy dialogue.

Edited by Glottery

Looks pretty neat visually, buuut...the quality of dat voice acting hops up and down pretty much, a bit too much. Puzzles also seem to be pretty silly quite often. Guess one could still go for this when it's on sale, 'ndeed.

OOOOOOMmmmmmm...hands offfff.

Saw this on Steam yesterday and figured we'd get a Vinny Quick Look out of it. I think the criticisms are a little harsh, not untrue, but not enough to keep me from playing it. I love a good adventure game enough that even the mediocre ones are entertaining. Maybe I'm just easy to please.

I saw this come out on Steam yesterday.. not terribly surprised there's a quick look! Been a big string of adventure games lately. I dig it.

Vinny and Ryan sound kinda... drunk.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Those four fingered hands are really weirding me out.

Concerning the Audio, i think its much better in german, maybe some things got lost in translation.

Posted by Efesell

I absolutely love this game.

The voice acting seems okay to me. Nothing special but nothing to hinder my enjoyment.

Everybody's way too dry and snappy. Might as well be desert alligators. "fuh-dvooh!"

Posted by rjayb89

A lot of these "jokes" are more miss than hit. Majorly so.

Psh, Simon the Sorcerer had the spacebar mechanic way back in the early 90s.

Also, don't compare this douche to Guybrush. A much more apt comparison would be Simon. The Sorcerer.

Posted by TwoLines

Holy crap. The voice acting is average at best, the writing is kind of bad, and the puzzles seem annoying. No, thank you.

Posted by RVonE

Man, Vinny's laugh...

Posted by Laiv162560asse

Vinny's first criticism is exactly what has deterred me from picking up any Daedalic games so far: the English VO sounds uncoached or poorly executed. Does anyone know if it's possible to play in German with subs, and whether that's any less annoying?

The art-style reminds me of the Oglaf webcomic.

@cyraxible: Agreed, 100%.

And that's such a big part of these kinds of adventure games :(

She was too small for a horse so her parents opted for deponia

Bring on the quick looks!

Nice. Has a neat look to it.

Posted by CapnChaosDK

On my wishlist in steam, looking forward to see if I should buy this.
