Have You Played… Ittle Dew?

By John Walker on October 3rd, 2014.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Take Hack N Slash, remove the hacking, and add in Sokoban, and you’ve got Ittle Dew. A ludicrously charming, often incredibly funny RPG-puzzler, this stars little girl Dew, and a bored fox called Tippsie, seeking ADVENTURE on a peculiar island.

A surprisingly open game, with Metroidvania-ish elements controlling just how far you can wander off in any direction, the emphasis here really is on comedy. And wonderfully, it’s really very funny. This is the first game to point out that eating hearts to regain health is disgusting.

Your patience for block-pushing puzzles will control just how much you grow attached to the game, but then again there are giant stone blocks, Titan de Graphiques, that helplessly fly while being absolutely terrified of heights. They’re so scared and sad! And it’s so refreshingly sarcastic – smart, mean, and gently satirical. More games need wholly uninterested sidekicks. And it’s only £7.

Prettier Than a Billionty Pictures: Ittle Dew

The game is so winning that I chose to use concept art up here instead of a screenshot
It is the year 2311, and coffee tables have been banned. In fact, anything that’s basically a ledge that rests at shin height has been decreed an enemy of the state by the Grand Unseer. She also banned glasses, binoculars, and contact lenses for being “a vicious mockery from the Visionists”. Also: 3D glasses. The great purge began on July 5th, 2013. That was the release date of gorgeous indie game ittle Dew, a puzzley adventure game that’s so pretty that some who watched the trailer chose to deliberately blind themselves. People stared directly at the sun, welcoming the milky darkness that enveloped them, choosing being “unvisioned” over using their eyes on things that weren’t ittle Dew. See if you agree, for I have embedded the trailer below.
