It all happened five years ago, during a picnic arranged by Ronald and his best friend Skinny.

Things were going well, until Ronald pulled out two very tiny plums from his basket, one for Skinny and one for him. Not knowing about his deadly allergy to plums, Skinny didn’t think twice about eating it, and immediately went into anaphylactic shock which caused his sudden death. Ronald ran off, terrified.

When he woke up, Skinny discovered that he had become a skeleton and been sentenced to live in Ronald’s bedroom wardrobe forever. Since then, Skinny has watched over Ronald constantly, without his knowledge… but now things are going to change! To save his best friend’s soul from eternal damnation, Skinny will be forced to reveal himself and make Ronald admit his 'crime'. Not a simple challenge at all!

A visually-rich 2D point & click adventure game which pays tribute to the pop culture through a myriad of references.

Inspired by the great ‘90s classics such as 'Monkey Island', 'Day of the Tentacle', 'Tony Tough' and 'Sam & Max: Hit the Road', the game has a strong sense of humour, but isn't shy about dealing with mature and non-politically correct themes.

More than 40 hand-illustrated and digitally colored locations, populated with more than 70 characters and enriched by dozens of puzzles.

Four types of actions for each hotspot (Look, Pick up, Use, and Talk) and dialogues with multiple choices (and full of funny answers to try)!

Play as Skinny, a teen-skeleton with an impertinent attitude and a sparkling wit, willing to do anything to save his best friend’s soul from eternal damnation!

Dozens of clever puzzles and many inventory objects to collect!

The Wardrobe reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"The Wardrobe" is a typical Game where the Recommendation seems wrong in any Case. Because on the one hand the Game is awesome, but on the other hand on certain Points also bag-weak and in the Core Business of all things. As an Adventure, "The Wardrobe" fails. On the one hand, there is the Story, which may not really develop and is ultimately viiiiel over too quickly. I mean less the Playing Time and more The Storytelling. "What? That's supposed to have been now? ' But where Storytelling only disappoints, the Puzzle Design is disastrously illogical. Without a Walkthrough, I probably would hardly have finished the Game. Hardcore Old-school adventure players may love it, but my Time is too bad to revisit X Screens to check off all the Possibilities, which could now be the next Step. Because many Puzzles or next steps result from anything but logical From the existing one. Despite these massive Weaknesses, there is also one great Strength: The Humour. It was a While ago that I laughed so often and sometimes so loudly at a PC game about the wonderfully absurd humour crammed with References. And that is why, despite the huge Weaknesses, I ultimately make a Recommendation (albeit far from unqualified). Because despite the Weaknesses, the Game has managed something very central: It entertained me wonderfully for a few Hours. Conclusion: Those who stand on Humor (and especially Pop Culture references) and can admit to using a Walkthrough can give "The Wardrobe" a Chance. But If you are too proud for it and are not prepared to Put Hours into solving illogical Puzzles or who doesn't give much to Humor, you should definitely leave the Fingers of "The Wardrobe."

So actually I would like to recommend The Wardrobe and I think all The references are great, but the Game is unfortunately not recommended as a Point & Click. It's a real shame because the Game actually has a Humor that appealed to me, but unfortunately probably most of the Effort for the whole Refers went on it. 1. Some of the time you don't know exactly what you should or could do now, because it's not conveyed to you at all And you can't always be recognized. In particular, the second (and larger) section actually consists only of two Actions that have almost nothing to do with all the Puzzles you complete in it. 2. The Solutions to Puzzles often come from plucked out of thin air. I'm even unsure about some Things after playing through about some things, what Sense that was now or how you should have come up with it, because you don't point anything out, even though I had every Conversation and clicked on every Hotspot. That creates a constant Uncertainty about which Items might be relevant in the World. So you just click and try a lot of things. Verdict: In approach, I Liked The Wardrobe better than many of the smaller last appeared Point and Clicks, but as a Point and Click Adventure it didn't get playfully good. Most of the time you play in front of you like that and then try around with all the collected stuff. Newcomers in particular will quickly get to the Point where they're peering a Walkthrough or taking a Solution to Help. In Comparison, a lot of Competitors just do that a lot better. If you don't have a Problem with the weak Action or are not bothered to resort to Complete Solutions, you can still easily access the Wardrobe.
