OverviewOverview

My Brother Rabbit is a hand-drawn hidden-object puzzle game about an ill sister. As her plight is told through water-colour animation, you play her brother's rabbit and unfold a parallel story in a fantasy world.

As the anthropomorphic rabbit, you solve each hunt-and-collect challenge, which moves both narratives forward. It can be a bit of a laborious hunt at times, but the characterful fantasy creatures and the weight of your real-world sister's plight carry the game along.

The puzzles and geographical mini-work much better on iOS, Android and PC where you can point-and-click. Strangely this isn't an option on the Switch's touch screen. This is simple steady game-play and as much as about the narrative as the interactions. It's a rainy Sunday afternoon kind of game that you can complete in a few hours.

Although some will find the game overly simplistic, its storytelling is a mature and heartbreaking look at illness. Both for those suffering and those in their family. Like Firewatch, the theme of helplessness of carers and parents to help those they love is well illustrated.
