Welcome to Storyteller, an amusing take on the puzzle game format that tries something distinctly unique. You take control of the storyteller here, hence the name, and you are provided with the frames of the story and all the props, it is up to you to piece these tales together and show the true series of events. With an adorable art style and some of the most intuitive gameplay you can get, this is the absolute perfect game for younger audiences and people in the mood for something a bit on the slower side. If that sounds good to you, keep reading as we get into it.
The gameplay for Storyteller is unique, I’ll be honest as can be there. Designed as something you’d expect to be a minigame of a larger title, this requires you to build the stories as they are meant to be. You are provided with a series of empty spaces on screen in comic panel design, and then you place the pieces of the story, be it characters or an event, to create the story as we know them. This could be the story of Dracula, elements of the Snow White story and more. It’s a very simple game, and anyone with a basic understanding of puzzles games, narrative, or the roots of these stories will be able to complete the game in record time. If you have a younger sibling or a child or something, you would benefit quite from letting them take a gander at it. Storyteller is a perfect gateway puzzle game for the aspiring gamer or inquisitive youth.
A Different Story
One thing I love about this game is that, although a knowledge of how the original stories go does help, it is not required as you may find that you wish to do something else with the narrative. Maybe push the story a bit further, or change the events so that there is a better outcome. You have the ability to create your own story here and I find that to be utterly adorable.
The art style of this game is lovely. The adorable character art, the charming little animations all allow for a very easily viewed game. If you put events or characters in the wrong panels, they will still animate, showing a different interpretation of the story, but only one way is the correct way.
This attention to detail goes a long way in making this title as user friendly as possible. The visuals look like they would be at home on the shelf alongside games like Little Big Planet, as they share the same soft but refined look that resonates well with younger audiences. This does come from the same developer as Dungeon Rescue, who is renowned for their attention detail.
A fantastic game that offers a lot to younger players or those who are after something well-designed but much more relaxed.
