Young Sadwick lives in a beautiful but perilous fantasy world with his brother, grandpa, and pet sidekick Spot. Together they roam these mystical lands with their circus. Sadwick, known as Sad to friends and family, is a twelve year old boy with a melancholic vein. He would like nothing more than to set out and explore the world, but his family is holding him back. One night a strange blue creature appears to him in his dreams, abruptly changing his life. It tells a tale of the approaching end of the world that Sadwick will play a decisive role in it. To get to the bottom of this mysterious prophecy, Sadwick and Spot set out on a dangerous adventure that leads them to the furthest ends of the Whispered World.

I truly gave this game a chance. Really! I played it for several hours spanning over a few weeks and gave up.
The graphics and backgrounds are amazing, but graphics aren't everything...
I could put up with his whinny depressing voice for the whole game if the puzzles didn't become so abstract and random.
I ended up following a walkthrough online and it got to the point where Iread more had to use the walkthrough for EVERY puzzle!
I have more patience then most adventure gamers... I have played all the Monkey Island games, Myst games, etc.
Even those games have areas where you need to find a walkthrough and have some abstract puzzles that don't make sense, but Whispered World finally broke me!
If you are a hard-core adventure/puzzle gamer, you will probably enjoy Whispered World (with some frustration), but everyone else should probably stay away

Distinctly average; probably overpriced on GOG.
I've played TWW as part of another (now unavailable) bundle. Make no mistake - the graphics and sound are fantastic. Unfortunately it's plagued by pixel hunting and hidden objects, illogical puzzles and annoying voice acting.
The plot isn't terribly well put together, even allowing for the ending - frankly I see it as a cop out.read more For your money, there are several better, cheaper adventures to play first.

From the beautiful handdrawn backgrounds to the great and expressive characters (also handdrawn!) this game is a treat to look at.
I only played the German version, though if the English version also received the same amount of care and love regarding voice acting and script you can expect a at times funny and at times melancholic journey through The Whispered World.
And it's aread more great adventure game dammit! It features a cute you can change the form of at will to solve puzzles and it's used well if not sometimes unconventially (as in you have to embrace the games logic - it's never obscure and unfair though).
You'll learn to love the depressive clown and you'll wish to spend more time with the great characters even after the the credits roll!
