Lost Words: Beyond the Page Review
Posted: 13 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.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE.
Rated PEGI 7 because it features pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. At one point in the game, the protagonist's village gets attacked and goes up in flames. The player encounters a menacing dragon accompanied by threatening sound effects. This can be scary for younger children.
