Marvin's Mittens is a little game with a tremendous amount of heart.
Experienced gamers will be able to see the ending within a few hours, but what's there is tight, focused, and well-designed.
The hand-drawn graphics make the game look like a children's book in motion, and the memorable original soundtrack will stick with you well beyond your time with the title.
If you enjoyed games like Journey, you'll find a lot to love in Marvin's Mittens.
First of all, yeah, there were plenty of Slender games by the time this was released, but this game is different for the following reasons:
1. It proved that even a basic idea such as collecting pages while being chased by Slenderman could've been made with a more professional quality and a little (but still important) background story.
2. They improved many aspects that the original one lacked or didn't had (the main being adding the savegame feature and the unlockables and photos) and created a different and scarier Slenderman (which actually MOVES towards you instead of standing there like an idiot).
3. Being able to actually READ the notes to understand the story, so you can understand what chases you (the menu were you read the notes doesn't stop the game, so be careful when reading the notes).
4. A new story instead of the typical Slender and adding some jumpscares and enemies only visible with the U-Vision.
Still, the games has some flaws, such as Slenderman standing still sometimes and the player can run towards him and pass through his side unharmed. But if you can ignore these little flaws, you'll enjoy this game from beginning to end.
And the best of all... IT'S FREE! Get it now!!
This is most certainly one of the most immersive RPG's known to date.
The thing that makes it so emmersive the the tonns of voice acting and brilliantly implemented fighting tactics.
Even the more modern variant (Skyrim) Can't surpass the premium status of this game.
awesome! great gameplay. can't wait for more chapters; its agonizing to play a game so far and then have to wait god knows how long to continue the game. I'll have to play from the house again whenever more gameplay comes out. please release at least the next chapter soon? awesome job with this one.
Amazing mod, everything was perfect about it.
The only thing I wish would have been changed would be the fact that its so short for the size that it is.
There should be more content and shouldnt have ended so abruptly...
Even if there was hidden story plots that ment for it to end like that.
I know there was a hidden backstory with the one lady and islamic guy but comon... You could've had so much more content..!
I liked this game. It had a scary atmosphere and some clever scares. It made me jump out of my chair many times during gameplay. I do, however, think it needs work.
The character walks obnoxiously slow and without a sprint function, it can make navigating a bit of a pain. I personally found the use of the gun completely pointless as there was nothing to shoot and nothing even bothered to try and attack me. There is one room that requires a key, but I could not find it anywhere in the game and I could not figure out how to open the doors that said "Close...".
Other than that, it's a pretty scary game and it has a lot of potential.
My Rating: 7/10 (Enjoyable)
This game is now in my top 5 all time favorite.
Sword and sworcery is a pure gem.
I play it very slowly, i do it for every game that i really love.
This game shown what can be achieved when you throw yourself out of the boundaries of the video game comfort zone.
The story telling, the powerfull music, the gorgeous pixel art ... Everything is so perfect in this game.
I often get bored really fast in most of today's video game. But this one, like a really good book, is one that i'll really regret finishing.
Yesterday evening i spent 10 minutes with Jim Guthrie, in a remote glade during the dawn of a dream, listening to his music. That was an awesome and unique experience.
I've just finished the game/demo. This game is awesome and the multiplayer mode is really fun !
The thrill of "Hacking" is there though it is harmless, but not uneffective (you can do harmless but fun things to your opponent's computer in Multiplayer).
This is an amazing game, though I would have liked to know more about Bit's death and Entropy and I was awaiting some kind of Conspiracy plot that never happened.
Anyway, this still remains very good overall, it just need to be polished and I could definitely buy it.
This can be very difficult! But so much fun. I like the look and the firing effects of the guns. Very much a harsh survival experience. Learn to melee...using too much ammo will spell your doom! :)
