Unforeseen Incidents Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts in this Unforeseen Incidents review. The game was created by Backwoods Entertainment and Application Systems Heidelberg.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game from the developers for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
Unforeseen Incidents is a point and click adventure game that follows the exploits of a self proclaimed handy-man named Harper Pendrell.
The story revolves around quite a few different things but to avoid spoilers I’ll only mention the first thing.
Harper’s journey begins after an illness called Yelltown Fever leaves his hometown (Yelltown) in a quarantine. After receiving a letter from a woman who had been infected by the disease, he sets out to find a reporter named Helliwell. His search takes him throughout Yelltown and he eventually figures out who she is after a series of pretty mind numbing puzzles.
Events quickly spiral out of control from here and Harper finds himself in more and more dangerous situations as the game progresses.
The story is incredibly well-written and the voice acting is top-notch as well. Each character is very well portrayed and enjoyable to listen to. Harper’s sense of humor provides many laughs over the course of the game, it made me laugh quite frequently.
Another area that I was really impressed with was the music. The game’s music fit perfectly with the game. I really liked the effect in the Yelltown Hotel where the music sounded muffled in the lobby and got louder in the basement. The music is really well done throughout though and it was very pleasant to listen to.
The artwork was really quite good too. I’m not sure if the cardboard cutout cutscenes were intentional or not but they had a surprisingly good effect on the game. Some may find it to be a bit low quality but I found that it actually fit really well with the game. It also increased the humor at times too, at least I felt it did.
Gameplay wise, it’s your standard point and click adventure fare. You solve item based puzzles of varying difficulty over the course of the game. There were quite a few that wound up stumping me pretty good though. The one where you need to find Helliwell in the beginning of the game was pretty tough to figure out, among others.
Overall, Unforeseen Incidents was a very enjoyable adventure and it has a lot going for it. It’s got a great art style, great music, a fantastic story revolving around a disease, and a great cast of characters too. If you’re a fan of adventure games like myself, you definitely don’t want to miss this game. it’s a pretty epic journey and I highly recommend giving it a shot.
Thanks for taking the time to read this Unforeseen Incidents review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
