    Unforeseen Incidents checks all the boxes for what constitutes a great point and click adventure game. Solid characters, a good story, good puzzles that are balanced, and an impressive presentation thanks to well-drawn art/animations and a good aural package.

    Unforeseen Incidents does not stand out because of the originality of its plot, but its narrative is compelling. Players will connect with its characters and atmosphere while solving some clever puzzles.

    Unforeseen Incidents proudly displays the “I Want To Believe” poster on its wall and boasts virtually irresistible artistic design. The puzzles are rock solid and will please the hardcore, challenge-starved adventure gamers of yore. The story sticks a bit too close to tried-and-tested conspiracy theory clichés and is the one element that keeps the game from attaining ‘modern classic’ status.

    Unforeseen Incidents presents a delightfully captivating conspiracy with wonderful characters and perfect pacing. Its puzzles succeed because they are rational and connected with the story. The icing on the cake is the pleasant and striking visual style.

  1. Minor issues aside, I honestly can’t remember the last time I’ve enjoyed a long-form point-and-click adventure this much. It reminds me why I love the genre so much.[Recommended]

Something completely different than you are used to. The figures and landscapes are hand drawn with love and great style. The story is gripping, the puzzles are sometimes challenging but never unfair or absurd. Despite the actually serious topic, the game is just full of humor. The soundtrack also is very good. A clear purchase recommendation. Expand

    It's a pretty good game... but could have been much more, story-wise. The plot twist at the end was super obvious since the beginning. AIt's a pretty good game... but could have been much more, story-wise. The plot twist at the end was super obvious since the beginning. A certain chracter motivation is... kinda weak.
    Nice puzzles, some are quite original (and confusing - I had to use a walkthrough for that damn "blue wharehouse" puzzle). I have a love/hate relationship with the art style. Hated it at first glance, I grew to really, really like it. It's original and pleasant. Animations are SO BAD though, and I hate that cheap flash-game vibe they have.
    The voiceover is quite good, these are some good actors. Oh, I also hate the interface, especially when selecting the multi-tool items.

    A very good P&C adventure.
