The point of adventure games, even more than many other genres, is to present an engaging story. Puzzle titles can exist without one, fighting titles almost entirely without, and other genres without to any varied extent, but if an adventure title lacks a decent story, it has nothing left to fall back upon.

So it's no secret that a few of my favorite Adventure titles of years past took their cues from Jules Verne novels or old historical tales. The developers of Keepsake, meanwhile, decided to place their title in a world full of magic and wonder, and make the story as heart-felt as possible.

The result is an amazing title, worth playing through just as much for its ability to break with standard adventure title cliches as for the engaging puzzles and world.
