Off-Site Reviews

These Heterogenous Tasks

"The story inhabits a certain well-loved style, one marked out by Metamorphoses, Myst, The Dreamhold, The Moonlit Tower; lonely, ethereal, filigree-puzzlebox worlds. Even more than is the norm in that style, it is unconcerned with narrative about other people, or even really about Delphina. It’s not so much a story as a crystallised moment of escapism. . . ."

"There were parts here that could have fitted together more smoothly, and I would have liked something that delved a bit more into Delphina’s character – but overall, this is a solid piece of work."

"But for the most part the idea is sound and simultaneously provides interesting puzzles and thematic elements, which are the ideas I like the best."

"During my short experience in 'Delphina's House,' I felt a sense of happiness that I rarely feel."

"Summary: A puzzle-focused game fused well with fantasy elements, which makes players feel warm and fuzzy within."

"Along the way, Grove touches on some other much-loved IF tropes: twinkly imagery, parallel Alice in Wonderland worlds and objects that travel between them, molten glass and starstuff."

Emily Short's Interactive Storytelling
Ultimately, the combination of fluffy story, relatively easy puzzles, and lighthearted mood reminded me a bit of Tookie's Song or Snack Time!. It’s well-executed comfort play material.
