As it stands though, Lylian Episode 1: Paranoid Friendship is a very entertaining game, I would recommend it to anyone who has a spare few quid and who would like to try something different for a change. A game which made me question my already questionable sanity.

Lylian isn’t a great game, but it is a game that is as much a work of interactive fiction as Heavy Rain and Mass Effect are, but without the large budget. Where Heavy Rain and Mass Effect had interesting gameplay to carry along the story, Lylian has an interesting story to carry along the gameplay. Even at 5 dollars, Lylian is so short you can’t help but feel a little ripped off, it doesn’t have much replay value, aside from a handful of collectibles. Still, if you aren’t too emotionally attached to your 5 dollars, and want an interesting story and don’t mind decent gameplay, Lylian is a great game.

Fortunately, Lylian: Episode One doesn't meet quite such a terrible fate. The mystery just builds and builds until it reaches its peak then abruptly ends without any resolution whatsoever, taunting you with promises of future installments. It leaves you craving for more, hoping that the first episode's incredible yet unrealized potential is just one super surreal adventure away.

We really love what the game is trying to do, and we'll definitely be checking out the next episode when it arrives. Lylian somewhat achieves what it sets out to do - make you question what exactly is going on the entire time - but with some terrible fighting and poor animations, there's definitely some way to go before we're fully sold.

Lylian Episode 1 is definitely rough around the edges and rather short, but it's still a creepy, bittersweet love letter to old-school gaming that deserves to be supported.
Bit-Tech (Dec 11, 2010)
Lylian's debut episode is an interesting attempt at introducing a fresh theme into the gaming world. Its both adult and mature, and uses its setting and story to create an experience that will certainly intrigue anyone hoping for something new. It's just a shame that the gameplay itself doesn’t offer enough in terms of depth to keep the first hour engaging.

Sfeervol en intrigerend, zo kunnen we deze eerste episode van Lylian het best omschrijven.
