Have You Played... Ittle Dew?

Ittle but open.

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.
