Little Kite reviews and comments

Translated by

"Little Kite"-Translated "The Little Dragon" gives us a brief Glimpse into the Life of a young mother Married to a violent Husband. Of course, the Child suffers from the Aggressiveness and Rejection of the Stepfather. This one recently lost his Job and is now reaching for the Bottle to "drink away" his Problems. The Son misses his biological Father, who died in a Car accident. One Night the Child runs away ... "Little Kite" is the Sequel to "The Kite," which was released in 2012 and is available free of charge in the Store. The Successor deals with the same Story, albeit slightly modified and told in more detail. This time you can also play in the Role of the Boy; Unfortunately, you cannot choose the Rolls on your own, but change them automatically during the course Of the Game. Puzzles have been implemented That are quite difficult to solve. I wouldn't have progressed without a Guide at times. In Between, there Were Rucklers playing, otherwise no Problems. The End is different from the first Part and it is not to be feared this time that the Mother could end up in Prison, as this time it was clearly Self-defence. It Is a Pity that no Achievements have been added again. The Developer Ignores customers ' Wishes in this Direction, but at least there are Collectible cards.

The strength of this story lies in its simplicity. It gives you a brief glimpse to the daily life of a dysfunctional family and by doing so directly confronts a topic, which is unfortunately, even at this day and age, prevalent in alarming rates; the topic is domestic violence. The story is portrayed from two perspectives. The first belongs to Mary. After having lost her husband in a car crash, Mary eventually decided, for both personal and financial reasons, to embrace Oliver as her new Partner and step father for her son, Andrew. At some point Oliver became abusive and the rocky foundation on the basis of which this union had been established became more of a disadvantage than an advantage. Playing as Mary one can feel her inner ambivalence. Her primary concern is her son and his wellbeing, but valid concerns such as Money make the possibility of leaving difficult to execute. Instead she puts a brave face for her son and puts up with Oliver’s moods, drunkenness and fists. The second perspective belongs to Andrew. Still too young and naïve to fully understand the dynamics around him, but old enough to feel intimidated by it; he sometimes seeks refuge and comfort in an imaginary world, in which he can both ‘take cover’ during violent arguments between his mother and Oliver and converse with his deceased father. This game has all his foundations set in exactly the right place. The story is superb, the point&click interface intuitive and straightforward and the puzzles are well designed and could easily be part of a high budget game. Of course there are always things that can be improved: Graphics can always be more impressive. Adding a voice over, at least in English, should seriously be considered. 2017 is not 1990; It’s a rarity these days to find a game without a voice over, some players would be discouraged for this reason only and anyway you look at it, voice acting enriches the gaming experience in ways that written lines can never do. That aside, this game is story driven. It’s primary goel I is to tell a story and address a meaningful social issue - both of which it does very well.
