One man's trash is another man's treasure. We all have that one thing that's important to us; that one tiny, seemingly inconsequential thing that's somehow special. The Blue Beanie is grand adventure in a lilliputian package about just such an item, and one little hero's quest to bring it safely home.

Fantastic. More please.

Very nice! Would like to see more of this type of game.


Oh my, that was so cute I think I may have ruptured something. So well put together, easy enough gameplay, but still very clever! Had me smiling and laughing in a few places too. What a joy to play, I hope we can see more of this from Daphne :)


That was wonderful! Very Samoroft, but much cuter. Good to see some Aussie gaming-talent on JIG.
Congratulations Daphne!


This is gorgeous - the type of game play I like. Definitely support fellow Aussie.

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!


Great review!

Very cute game. I enjoy it just because it's story isn't that complicated and it's the game which can be played within all age ranges. Plus the animations, sfx and bgm are neatly done. Good game.


This is cute overload. I love this game.

crazybannaface May 16, 2009 12:06 PM

that is the cutest game i ever have seen


Can I get some help with:

the bower stage? I've found the flower, the paperclip, the clothespin and the rubber band, but I seem to need a fifth blue item to continue.


I haven't played online games in a long time. I happened upon a link to this game today. I almost cried this game was so beautiful. The music and the visuals create the perfect atmosphere for the story. Simple is the way games should be. I hope to see more for Daphne Lim.


It borrows so heavily from Jakub Dvorsky (who created Samorost) that he should appear in the credits. LOL. But charming nonetheless. Thanks for featuring it.


That was so good. loved it .


Solid work, but quite seriously; if it's going to be that 'inspired' by Jakubs work it should - at the very least - give a tip of the hat.

At any rate: a fun little experience.

Joachim May 16, 2009 2:43 PM

Gorgeous game, felt just a notch short though. But we can't have it all so it was just nice as it was.


Eli, Bad Dog:

I just want to mention that this game wasn't intended for wide release. It's a personal project that we found and thought you guys would enjoy.

The author is a huge fan of Amanita Design, and she was very respectful of Jakub when I asked her about it.



The last item is the button. You'll have to be quick to nab it: the spider will briefly dart out of the log holding it.


Ryusui, thanks a bunch.


Sound options?

shadowscribe May 16, 2009 5:57 PM

Cute. I hadn't played 'Samorost' before, so this one reminded *me* of 'Wogger'. If you liked this one, check out Wogger.


"Click tunnel" - what tunnel?


After a lot of clicking, I found the tunnel. Very cute game!


Very, very cute, and very, very well done.

If making someone smile could earn a grade, Daphne gets an A from me.

I found it to be a very warm and wonderful tribute to Samorost, and hope she writes more games like this soon. I love this type of little game -- they are visually gorgeous, and I like that they're not taxing -- they're just a very pleasant way to while a way a little time.

dandicandi May 16, 2009 7:17 PM

very cute game, took a while for me to figure out what u had to do but it was fun.

jasonz777z May 16, 2009 10:28 PM

That... was the BEST (really, Im not really a fan of point-and-click) one I've played. I could finish it by myself, the graphics and sounds is cool and great storyline.


Bravo! Well done. Lovely!
Encore! Encore!

himitsusj May 17, 2009 1:26 AM

That was absolutely adorable. It did heavily remind me of Samorost, but it was much softer...still, it was lovely. :)

Anonymous May 17, 2009 1:34 AM

That was sooooo cute and heart-warming! I loved it!!! :D

Anonymous May 17, 2009 3:39 AM

Awww this was such a sweet lovely game. It was absolutely delightful to play. Thankyou for sharing it with us.


This game is beautiful. Love it.

Freedonio May 17, 2009 2:34 PM

trop mignon ! ( "kawaï") Très poétique et très beau ! Il y a en effet quelque chose des Moomins là dedans !...

[Translation: "Too darling! ("Kawaiï") Very poetic and very beautiful! There is in fact something of the Moomins there inside!" -Kero]

ThemePark May 17, 2009 5:33 PM

Kawaii is Japanese for cute.


I think this game is beautifully crafted and it is so cute.
I love the idea of the little fluffy white character, and i did enjoy this game alot :)
This is amazing. I hope there will be a second one :D


Definitely like Samorost, but I like it. Quite enjoyable to play.


Very nice game but I didn't find it that fun. Something happened at the end and I was unable to finish it. I think that these point and click games are all too alike, this one seemed like any other one I have ever seen.


Beautiful graphics, well made, but very, very limited gameplay. Also the game is so easy you don't spend enough time in each level to really get into the atmosphere. Cute but not so much fun.


I can't find anything blue on the last level. I've already put the wood on the mud. Am I missing something?


Nevermind, got it.


Woo daphne! Go team malaysia! More please!

sparrow May 18, 2009 12:44 PM



Good review, Dora. Had it not been for the first two paragraphs of this review, I would have missed out on this game as I am in the probable minority of those not in love with Samorost. It's a good thing too because I was this close to missing out on an adorable game.

Robynthegeek May 19, 2009 12:13 PM

Just simple enough puzzles that no walkthrough was needed. What a sweet little game!

Dr. Worm May 19, 2009 4:51 PM

What a gorgeous game. Definitely up there with Samorost. The animation is superb. Also, for some reason, I love the main character's walking sound effect. Actually, I love everything about the main character. He looks squishy.

It was super easy, but still so wonderful. :)


That was short, but easy, fun, and very, very cute. Required some pixel-hunting though. Not bad: B+

Inghild May 20, 2009 2:14 PM

So cute game :- )
It was just lovely <3 ^^


This was really easy, and really adorable and well made!


i think that was the first point-and-click game i could actually finish.

Bård Fjærli May 22, 2009 7:55 PM

Very sweet game! its a basic monkey island game with a sweet touch! love it! keep up the good work! cheers from Norway! :)



Yah, the influence of the Aminata Design/Samorost style is delightfully noticeable, I started smiling from the moment I saw the artwork.
It's a fun cute game that is delightful to look at as well as play. Great job Daphne Lim, hope you try your hand at more!

doanerdoan May 23, 2009 5:58 PM

Very lovely, so pacific, unlike other killing games.
[Please don't post in all caps, thanks. ~Kero]

tudorhtop May 24, 2009 12:29 AM

a beautiful surprise!


I've never helped two birds to fall in love before! A delightful game.


that was very fun and cute!!!!


I can't find the

blue paperclip

can anyone help me? Please!


oh, nevermind. if anyone else is having the same problem:

the walktrhough refers to the next level.

you have to click the wood on the mud twice


The walkthrough is missing a step.

In the second to last stage, you have to click on the spiderweb to get the wood panel with the leaf to drop down


I would very much like to see a thank you to Amanita design and the folks who did Samorost at the end just in case somebody thought that the original idea and aesthetic was entirely Daphne Lim's.

I can't really see what stopped her doing that in the first place as it's a very very beautiful and charming game and it wouldn't have hurt.


Well, my face is red.

I can't seem to get off the ground. I'm having trouble with the worm/bird thing, right in the beginning.


that was so cute!!!!!!!!!!

ka7rina June 24, 2009 6:27 PM

It's driving me crazy that there are so few games like this one! I've played Samorost 1,2; Haluz 1,2; and all the random in betweens that are posted on JIG. I wish, wish, wish this style of game was more prevalent as my thirst for it is far from quenched.

Anonymous August 11, 2009 8:23 AM

excellent and innocent


The cutest little thing I've ever seen!


That was such a cute game!
the graphics paired with the sound affects made my day (:

i think i might of sploded out of pure joy if it went on any longer!


Very Nice Game It's cute. Nice Story =D


aww its so cute!

anonymous December 7, 2009 4:51 PM

I found it hard to click on the tunnel because I could barely see it! It looked like dirt! Maybe you could say tunnel under ladder.:)

Besides that you were very helpful!

m00fins_10 December 8, 2009 6:23 AM



I loved this game! So CUTE! The family looked so adorable! I really like it!


really enjoyed the game, quiet and gentle ... I'd pay 60 $ for that rather than COD:MW2

SallyBear April 24, 2010 9:07 AM

awwh i love this game!! i enjoy this type of game anyway but the little white man was SO adorable! :) i'd love to find more games by Daphne Lin!


I find myself returning to this game time after time, I think it's the combination of an almost-fairytale soundtrack and the whimsical story that makes this one of my favourites.


It was really enjoyable and very cute. :)

beatricekiddo December 11, 2010 5:20 AM

Aww! That was so cute... yes, no doubts about the Samorost influence but less surreal. All in all, very enjoyable and fun


This was fantastic! From the cute little sounds when walking to nice colours, this game caught my attention. :)


This game was fun, but really easy. The graphics were superb, and the sound effects really helped the whole game together. Like everyone else said, it was extremely easy so you didnt really spend time on each level, you just played the game right through as if you were watching a movie.


I thought that this game was pretty simple and straightforward. It didn't really have that much of difficulty to it. I did have to use the walk through guide though because there was just so many things to click on that I didn't know when or where or how or in what order I had to do things to move forward in the game. It was a slightly entertaining game but it was just too simple and straightforward for my liking.

Anonymous November 3, 2011 4:40 PM

I liked this game. I thought it was easy and simple. I liked the animation of the characters and the realness of the background. it wasn't time consuming which is good in my opinion.


At the beginning this game seemed like it would be easy to beat. However throughout I noticed it got harder and I am glad that the game had walktrhoughs to help me complete the game. The walkthroughs are very helpful!


Gorgeous walkthrough!! This game is super adorable! And not only do I love the little faces the little guy makes, but the game was really simple because of the walkthrough! Thanks :)

Tofuninja5489 April 10, 2012 3:28 AM

Utterly adorable. I completely got into their cuteness and was captivated.

Leopardmask June 9, 2014 8:55 PM

D'awwww! I think this is my favorite short point-and-click game ever! (And I've played a lot, mostly by Fast Games/GamyStar/BeGamer)


The game was very simple. It didn't contain any textboxes, allows you to click around to get an idea of what you're supposed to do.


Mostly cute. The one thing that killed it for me was

getting the woodpecker to eat the worm, after the player character is seen giving a friendly wave to the other identical worms. At that point, he completely stopped being sympathetic at all for me. In an otherwise nonviolent game, that destroyed the feeling I was getting of him as a peaceful friend of the other woodland inhabitants. The hypocrisy of greeting that same kind of creature as, seemingly, a person, then turning around and deliberately getting one killed for a hat, just compounded my distaste.

Still, 3/5 stars for effort.
