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

    When it all comes together, Unavowed is practically flawless. In fact, no other point-and-click game has blown my socks off quite like this.

    Thanks to Wadjet Eye’s now decade-long commitment to creating narrative driven point-and-click adventures that look and sound like products from a bygone era, it has seemingly done the impossible with Unavowed. Created a modern-day pixel-art driven, point-and-click classic. An adventure to savour, and one to revisit in the years to come.

    A poignant story of devotion and hope, of love and duty, of good and justice, a rollercoaster ride of unexpected twists that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last second.

    Unavowed is another adventurous little gem by Wadjet Eye Games, although with even more than usual in terms of gameplay and storytelling.

    A terrific plot, excellent characters, and fantastic worldbuilding elevate the game's unexciting puzzles. [Issue#272, p.44]

    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.

    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

    Ok. It's overhyped. It's a good indie adventure game. It does the job well. Experience is great, but not unique. Music is awesome. And it'sOk. It's overhyped. It's a good indie adventure game. It does the job well. Experience is great, but not unique. Music is awesome. And it's the only "awesome" thing here. The rest of this game - you probably have seen it somewhere else. For adventure/point click games lovers it's must play. For everybody else (99.8% of Earth population) it's meh... if you are bored, you can play this. For me, it's a game just to kill some time before next AAA. You will forget this game in a week. But after all it's good product in Money-Entertainment-Time terms. 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
