If you’re a fan of mythology or story heavy games that require little effort from the player, you’ll find a lot to love here. The artsy design and overall outstanding presentation make this an experience not to be missed; just be warned, The Mooseman is not nearly as action oriented as the games that inspired its unique visual style.

The overall experience within The Mooseman is solid. From the game’s design to its moving score, I thoroughly enjoy my time with the game. I found myself intrigued by the lore of the world as it was something that I have never heard of, let alone experienced. Kind of reminded me of the experience I had playing Never Alone on PS3. Outside a few UI choices when it comes to designing the menus, I can’t find a reason why someone wouldn’t enjoy this game…. Unless you weren’t a fan of Limbo or Inside.

The Mooseman is a visually stunning game that aims to teach you the history of tribes long passed. When played leisurely, it takes just as long as most average length feature films would, making the game a perfect experience for an evening at home. It must be stressed that The Mooseman is a very casual experience and is not a game for those looking for a challenge. It is made purely for its spectacle and educational purposes, therefore this game (despite its score) cannot be recommended to everyone. But if you’re in the mood for something relaxing and intriguing, then The Mooseman may just be one to consider.

Lasting only two hours, The Mooseman can feel a bit too short for a paid game. But for a game with such simple mechanics, I was happy that it ended before it overstayed its welcome and grew repetitive. When it works properly, The Mooseman is well worth your time and money, especially at the $6.99 pricetag. And to close with a personal note: if you’re anything like me, the Russian folklore alone is worthwhile.

In other words, your enjoyment of The Mooseman will come down to how much you enjoy edutainment. It’s definitely not for everyone, and if you don’t feel like reading every new page, then what you’re left with is a short, uneventful adventure game. If, however, that doesn’t phase you, then there might just be enough here to make The Mooseman worth your while.

The Mooseman is a game that feels like it accomplishes what it sets out to do, for the most part. The ancient myths of the Finno-Ugric tribes are complemented well by the uncommon visual style. The story that is told over the course of the adventure is fascinating, and the art can range from striking to subdued depending on what the scene calls for. Where The Mooseman falls short is in the areas that are supposed to keep the audience engaged in between the lore-heavy segments. This could very well turn away those individuals who are looking for more than just a purely educational journey accompanied by a, frankly, tedious gameplay experience.
