    With a great cast of characters, Unavowed is a stylish urban supernatural fantasy that is touching, funny, endearing, replayable and above all, fun.

    WadjetEye Games has done it again! Unavowed does not disappoint at all, relying on the tried-and-tested formula that has worked so well in the past, but now taking that and polishing it beyond belief, and then expertly blending in themes from popular titles, sprinkling a whole host of fresh ideas into the pot to make for one of the most engaging experiences of the year.

    A love letter to an after-hours, twilight New York that you’ve been dreaming of your entire life, Unavowed boldly innovates within the genre whilst delivering an adult, hard-boiled narrative of loss, terror and unexpected redemption.

    Unavowed is a triumph of genre fusion enhanced by years of hard work in an unsung genre. If there’s any justice, it will spark an adventure game renaissance.

    As far as presentation, Unavowed has twice the resolution of a typical Wadjet Eye title (640×360), but more importantly the art work looks great. Voice-acting and dialog is nicely done, and you can also enable a commentary track as you play to learn more about the development. In sum, if you enjoy the genre, you’re sure to enjoy Unavowed.

    Charming horror comedy adventure with cool abilities and choices held back only by the puzzles hardly setting a challenge.

    When you boil it down, Unavowed takes the tried and true formula of the Point-and-Click game and uses it as a stage to talk about humanity. Technical problems and gripes do not sully what was a great experience.

    One of the BEST old-school Point-n-click Adventures! Enjoy a Game that even has re-play value!

    Excellent writing, acting, music and art. Clever, moving and (a rarity in adventure games) *very* replayable. I cannot recommend it enough..

Don't expect many puzzles or an inventory full of items. Almost everything is straight forward, this is usually boring but the story itself keeps it really interesting. While i'm not fan of this genre I enjoyed it! Expand

I never stumbled on the answer of a puzzle by randomly combining objects; the only time I had to confront a guide it turned out my game bugged out and I had to restart. So that aspect is great. I liked the supernatural detective agency feel and the game goes out of it's way to reference lore that makes the world feel fleshed out. Story has some cool/surprising moments and there are multiple endings. Characters feel like real people just with fantastical powers. This game does everything right from a point and click perspective Expand

No voice acting for the player's character. Instead there are multiple characters which make only tiny differences. There exist some ugly animations and some nice background graphics. In my opinion they should increase the resolution even more. The music is good. It's not Wadjet Eye Games' best adventure. I wish they could evolve more. Expand
