Lost Words: Beyond the Page Review
Posted: 19 months ago, last updated 2 weeks ago.
It starts as this simple platforming game but adds narrative weight when Izzy's grandmother is taken ill and then passes away. Experiencing this story by interacting with the words and pages that are telling it is a unique and tender way to deal with the themes here. The parallel story in Estoria offers a chance to relieve the tension while also offering a helpful parallel.
While not everyone will connect with the characters or the narration here, for those that do this is a lovely and unusual experience. Particularly for younger players, it's a gentle way to engage in a difficult subject.
While the text is generally high contrast, it is not very large and is often staggered or placed in strange ways for artistic and gameplay effects, which can decrease legibility and comprehension.
All of the text in the game is narrated, which can ease the reading challenge level and comprehension, and help assist in tracking some of the more unusual word placements.
