"Every dark fairytale has its monster," says the marketing, but the monsters here join the disconcerting characters to show how creepy or frightening things aren't always bad.
Although, unlike other point-and-click games you use the sticks to control your character, you still find items in the wilderness to help you solve puzzles and unlock the next path forward. As you go you keep a journal of your adventure, mapping uncharted regions and delving deeper into the lore of scandinavian folklore.
It's a non-violent adventure with accessible controls and universal themes. This works well for a wide range of family players of different ages and abilities. It's designed to pose a challenge but to also offer help when you need it.
Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Parental Guidance (PG) for Scary Scenes.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to have good skills of observation and be meticulous in your exploration. You also need to be happy for quite a lot of reading and processing of mythology and coming-of-age stories.
There are no difficulty settings, but you can't die and there are assists via Tove's journal and Oracle messages. You can press a button to flash interactive elements on the screen. Important items pop-up visually when close.
