Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes – Review

Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes is an extraordinary point-and-click adventure created by Daedalic Entertainment GmbH – the creators of the award winning games “The Whispered World” and “Deponia”. They had made another adventure named Edna & Harvey before – it is called “The Breakout”. In contrast Harvey’s New Eyes’s protagonist isn’t Edna like in “The Breakout” but Lilli – her best friend. It all starts in a convent, where Lilli is trying to rake up leaves on the ground, and the narrator welcomes you to the game.

Lilli raking up leaves on the ground while Mother Superior Ignatz is giving her another task. How irritating! But Lilli never defy her.

Narrator’s comments are unusual with a great taste of irony and black humor. The main protagonist doesn’t speak at all, she just squeaks one word, mainly just some sound not even a whole word, but interesting is that everybody knows, what she means or what is she asking. Lilli is a whole bunch of contrasts – she is shy, polite, sweet and innocent, but her best friend is an adventurer and a refugee from the asylum, and Lilli in an effort to save Edna have to overcome obstacles with victims, and take an adventure and violate all prohibitions, which adults usually say to children. The biggest paradox is that Lilli doesn’t know that she hurt someone because of her potato friends. From the end of the first chapter Harvey accompanies you, but not as you wished. Side characters had their own character, specific role and problems. Some of them you had already met in “The Breakout” – surprisingly. But compared to “The Breakout” Harvey’s New Eyes doesn’t have “herd” characters.

Not just Mother Superior is making Lilli’s life in the convent difficult. That Fatty doesn’t seem friendly at all…

The graphic of the game is very simply drawn and is very specific for Edna & Harvey games. It is of course better than The Breakout’s but in the same style. Background sounds fit perfectly to each situations/characters/atmosphere/emotions. The dubbing is amazing and it levels up each character.

When you don’t know what next – space is your best friend, because it shows you all active areas. It has also 29 steam achievements – believe it or not, they are all easily achievable! You will just bleed out to death few times, when realising some repetitive achievements, but who doesn’t want a perfect game? Oh, come on! You? Then you aren’t a real gamer – just kidding.

Oh! A talking mummy! How cute. Can he tell stories? Of course! Feel free to ask.

The whole game is hilarious. If you don’t agree, play it and then leave me a comment! Anyway in this game isn’t place for boredom, because it will shock you at each plot, and it has multiple endings with – how else – ironical lessons. As a gamer with all achievements and also with a perfect game status, I can highly recommend this game with a clear conscience.
