Serena review. Free game on Steam.

5 posts in this topic

Here's a review for a free point and click game I found on Steam named Serena.

The plot is simple. You're in a cabin, you don't remember who you are, and you have to point and click every objects in the cabin to return your memory bit by bit. I won't spoil what happens, but let's just say things gets a lot more interesting each time you progress and in the end...... you know what, play it to find out.

 

The gameplay is old school like Myst where you have to click into a directional arrow to move to that direction and click on a cupboard or a wall filled with objects to zoom in on them and interact with the objects to get an idea of what they mean to the main character. You can't pick them up in the game, you can only click over and over again to hear the main character's inner thoughts which is pretty well voiced. Do it to everything in the cabin and after the inner thought becomes different, you do it again.

 

The game is only 30 minutes - 1 hour long, and there's no replayability whatsoever after you finish it once, but the story is quite intriguing and at the end you will be surprised at what happens.

 

Overall, an interesting short game that's a call back to the old point and click games of the past, and it's free. I give the game the rating of "so good that you can't wait for the sequel (if there is any)".

I enjoyed it. Thought I was going crazy when I heard PushingUpRoses' voice, I thought I had watched too many videos from Channel Awesome producers and was hearing their voices.

Glad I can help.

That was her?? Wow, I didn't know that. Her voice in the game has a habbit of ending in the same tone. Especially noticeable when you are reading the letters. Unless it ends in a question mark or she's in an angry mood, her voice ends up the same way.
