Words. They’re a wonderful thing, wouldn’t you say? Even more so in Letters – a written adventure, which follows its protagonist, Sarah, from childhood to teenagehood and all the way to adulthood. How she ends up and what happens along the way is (almost) entirely up to you, courtesy of the power to move entire words around, changing… everything!
Yeah okay, almost everything. Or maybe not even close to everything. But still a lot. Let’s keep it at that, just to not raise expectations too high. In all seriousness though, there seems to be quite a bit to this coming-of-age story, and goodness me, if it isn’t presented in a truly unique way – a puzzle platformer that has the player move words around! Such incredible madness, accompanied by a beautiful hand-drawn art style and soothing music. Quite the package.
Explore Sarah’s colorful world and use the power of words to change her life!
Or… just stack cats or something.
How about… all of the above? Letters – a written adventure is, according to its creator, not overly lengthy after all, so going back and trying different things to see what might happen seems almost downright encouraged. I mean, in case plain ol’ curiosity isn’t enough of a motivator for a replay or two, once the credits roll for the first time. I have a feeling it will be. One word after another, soon paragraphs will morph into fully changed pages and the entire story will be different. Every time. Unless you do the exact same things. Change only occurs if you actively participate, after all, so… let’s get wordy!
Letters – a written adventure is available on Steam, itch.io, GOG.com, and Switch, carrying a $14.99 price tag.
