Quick mini-review: The gameplay kind of annoyed me: one of the repeating puzzles I really disliked, and I spent a lot of time wandering around trying to figure out what to do next. Possibly my own fault for playing with some of the clue sparkles turned off. But still.
On the other hand, the Dark Parables sequence is really, really growing on me. They all link together! In the previous game about the Frog Prince, you learn one of his four wives, Snow White, divorced him. She went home with her sick child to the Mountain Kingdom and became the Snow Queen. The magic mirror from Snow White figures in, as well as Kai and Gerda, and I suspect her wicked stepmother is a significant antagonist in one or more future games. It’s a really neat weaving together of many fairy tales.
The art was gorgeous, the voice acting was minimal and functional. Overall I’m reasonably happy with it.
