Larry The Unlucky
Mobits Games' crossover between point-and-click adventure and escape is not a cheerful story. It's experience, the devs say, and that's how it is, the game has impressive depth and intensity. In the first three chapters of Larry's life you discover how his misfortune influences other people (and toys) from his birth day to early school years. You need to help Unfortunate Larry with everyday difficulties he faces and he does need the help, indeed.
Everything started right upon Larry's birth which was not going well, to put it mildly. His mother died (beware, you can see her body in the game) and Larry is growing up as a lonely child. This is the frame of the story (or its beginning promised to be continued), the game's core is solid point'n'click adventure where you need to find hints, combine them, figure out solutions, and collect items and use them. The quality of puzzles is as high as we can see in the top escapes and is a firm point in slightly psychedelic surroundings.
The atmosphere is heavy from the start, and the soundtrack supports the eerie feeling of uncertainty very well. Solutions of some puzzles though perfectly logical may cause unexpectedly dramatic results. Very good game!
The game is controlled by a mouse and has autosave. Well done hint system.
Notice, that the content can be disturbing for some players. The protagonist's mother passed at his birth and you see her body. No details.
