Excerpt: is a magical graphical adventure game, based in a world reminiscent of classical children's literature such as Winnie the Pooh and Alice in Wonderland. It offers wonderful artwork, an interesting story line, and a musical accompaniment that brings the story to life.
Pros: • Great story, • Fun images, • Interesting characters
Cons: • You lose a step in progress when returning after quitting, • The story and theme might be a bit on the “childish” side for some players.
Excerpt: You’re a twelve-year old boy. There are only two days left of your summer vacation. Nothing particularly interesting has happened all summer. It’s difficult not to feel a certain pressure to find a way to squeeze a bit of adventure out of the last crumbs of your vacation.
Summary: Considering the story, gameplay and audio/visual design are all top notch, this is a definite, “Yes.” The sheer length and amount of included content makes me say that you will get your money’s worth.
Summary: The Night of the Rabbit, Daedalic Entertainment’s most recent game released on the 29th of May. In my of the game, I had said that I really enjoyed this game and found it both challenging and rewarding.
Excerpt: What is it? What do twelve year old boys dream of? I know I dreamt of becoming a pilot (until someone pointed out the 20/20 eyesight requirement), but other boys dream of being a mighty magician. Jeremiah Hazelnut for one; the protagonist in The Night of the Rabbit .
Conclusion: I love point-and-click adventure games and I commend companies like Daedalic, TellTale, and King Art for keeping the genre alive. After Deponia ’s rather positive reception, however, I expected more from Daedalic.
Summary: Night of the Rabbit is one of those adventure games that comes along and takes you by surprise giving you an experience that’s deeper and richer than you thought you were getting into. With some fantastic art, a stellar voice cast, and a great winding storyline it’s a seriously fun experience.

Excerpt: The Night of the Rabbit is the latest point-and-click adventure from the folks at Daedalic Entertainment, who are also responsible for the Deponia franchise (which will receive its third entry sometime in the next few months). However, The Night of the Rabbit isn’t anything like Deponia .
