Röki is a very charming adventure puzzle game reminiscent of the point and click adventure games of old. The game is beautifully animated and is gushing with charisma and style. The minimalistic art and muted colors work really well together with the calming music and ambient back ground noises to create a distinct personality for the game.
You follow a young girl on a journey to save her brother from a monstrous creature that stole him away in the middle of the night for some unknown purpose. As you chase the creature down, they vanish together into a portal and you awaken in a magical ream where fairy tales are reality and the otherworldly commonplace.
As you progress in the game, you must solve puzzles, meet interesting new characters, and slowly find out what happened to your brother. The pacing of the game is perfect, introducing new areas and characters at a steady and consistent pace. The puzzles themselves aren’t too difficult and are mostly based on logic. You also have the option to highlight all objects you can interact with so you don’t run into the classic situation of frantically clicking on every pixel and combining every item together to try and find a solution to a puzzle.
Overall, Röki is a very charming game with a lot of style and personality. The art is beautiful and pairs well with the relaxing back ground music. The world and characters are interesting and the puzzles are challenging enough but not frustrating. The game pulled me into the world and I had a hard time putting it down.
