It was the creepy art style that brought me to Kiki & Ana - The Child. I am sure this is the case for most people that develop an interest in this game too! I knew that this was going to be a horror themed game, but the way I heard it described as “cute” more than once certainly got me intrigued to finally give it a go. While you can beat the game in a little over an hour, I would still say that it is well worth checking out as it is quite the memorable experience.
Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead!
The plot of Kiki & Ana - The Child is something that I really did enjoy and think that it had a few curveballs that came out of nowhere which did legit shock me. The basics are we have this kid who is not what she seems and her parents decide to home school her and things just escalate from there. From scary clowns, creepy teddy bears, and psycho parents, the story is something that is honestly all the better the less you know about it going in. I tell you, being a babysitter has never been tougher.
The Maker of RPGs!
As you can probably tell already, Kiki & Ana - The Child is a game that is made using RPG Maker. What I like about the gameplay here is that it is pretty straightforward. You just play the game as it wants to be played, there is nothing too convoluted or hard to figure out here and you will probably end up beating the game in an hour or so, but there are different endings you can get so I do like that they give you a reason to jump back in and see if you can change what happens at the end. It plays well enough and I had myself a pretty decent time while I was playing it.
Pixel or Portrait
The art style that they have gone for in Kiki & Ana - The Child is one that I really like. The “gameplay” portion of what is going on here is all done with this very stylish looking pixel art. The characters are perhaps just a tad too blocky if I am being super critical, but I loved the attention to detail around the house and think that they managed to make things look “normal” but also kind of sinister and creepy at the same time. As well as this, there are character portraits too which are very well done and help give the characters more personality.
While I will admit that there is not a great deal to Kiki & Ana - The Child, I did like what was on offer here and felt that it told a story that had a good amount of charm mixed in with the uneasy horror theme too. It may not be a long game and to be honest, for me I think that it is a one and done style of game, but I can see why some people would want to see all of the different endings.
- I liked the story that was being told here
- Those are some of the creepiest and weirdest parents I have seen in a game
- The character portraits are fantastic
- You can easily beat the game in one sitting
- The pixel art while good, is just a tad too blocky in regards to the characters
- While I liked it, I was not bothered to try and see the other endings
