Old Man's Journey

Old Man’s Journey takes around two hours to complete and makes the most of that time, showering players in an array of lovely images and sounds while also giving them some fun manipulation puzzles to solve. I left this beautifully animated countryside having felt that the journey was indeed one worth taking.

As a whole, though, I found it beautiful but quietly non-engaging - like one of those children's books that's so delicate and pretty and calculated that you never really reach for them anymore.
