“Little Misfortune” is a captivating indie adventure game that tells the story of a young girl named Misfortune who is on a quest to find eternal happiness for herself and her family. The game’s dark and whimsical style is reminiscent of a Tim Burton movie, with a unique blend of humor, horror, and heart.
Led by her new friend, Mr. Voice, Misfortune ventures into the woods, where mysteries are unraveled, and a little bad luck unfolds.
I was pretty excited to play the game, since I didn’t know much about it but for me, it was fully worth it.
The gameplay is a mix of puzzle-solving, exploration, and decision-making. As the player, you guide Misfortune through a series of creepy and surreal environments, interacting with various characters and objects along the way. The game’s puzzles are clever and satisfying, requiring players to think creatively to progress.
The art style is striking, with hand-drawn illustrations that are both charming and unsettling. The game’s use of color and lighting creates a moody and atmospheric world that draws players into its twisted narrative.
The game’s narrative is told through Misfortune‘s perspective, with her quirky and naive commentary adding humor and depth to the game’s dark themes. The game’s writing is poignant and thought-provoking, exploring complex issues such as family dysfunction, mental illness, and mortality.
“Little Misfortune” is a captivating and emotionally resonant game that offers a unique and memorable experience. It’s a game that will make players laugh, cry, and reflect on the complexities of life.
Especially if you’re a fan of dark humor, the game is totally fo you. It was lots of fun and took some thinking-ahead for possible outcomes.
You may say of it being predictable but rather than thinking about the end, I really enjoyed the experience of the game and story.
