Harry Bowers writes: "Both intentionally, and unintentionally, Night Light Interactive’s Whispering Willows presents a curious puzzle. On one side, we have an intriguing adventure that is as compelling as it is harrowing. Short but sweet, it is an atypically earnest and introspective yarn that deserves your attention. Flip the coin, though, and players might find a one-note corridor crawler crippled by some arduous systemic flaws. Sadly, this is a bare-bones port that will frustrate as many people as it will enthral. Whether the game is truly worth your time ultimately depends upon just how much patience you can muster."
