Overall The Critter Chronicles was an enjoyable slice of point and click adventure. It has a warm heart and some lovingly realised characters. Ultimately though, much like the frozen desolate wastelands, the game feels too isolated from the world itself.
A sparse cast of characters and repetitive use of locations makes the game feel very narrow in focus. Whilst the puzzles are quite simplistic, that could be considered a bonus for those of you that enjoy the telling of a story more than the taxing of the brain. We wouldn’t hesitate to snap up this game and its predecessor, The Book Of Unwritten Tales, if you see them going for a good price on Steam.
