The Norwood Suite shames all other walking simulators with the quality of its storytelling and the way it uses player interactions in the narrative. It’s a unique, intelligent and ambitious game that eludes simple interpretation.
All-in-all, The Norwood Suite is a very fun and engaging game that manages to keep players immersed throughout the entire adventure. The only downfall of the entire game was that is was too short, because you just can't get enough!
The experience of The Norwood Suite is incredibly unique, each design choice, be it of the musical or visual arts, very much reflects Cosmo D's style. They seek their own aesthetic, telling their own story with their own art, rather than aiming to be another cookie-cutter game. The world in which you play feels well developed and full, but not cluttered, keeping you on the path of the game, but not on rails. The Norwood Suite — along with their first release, Off-Peak — are two games worth the effort and confusion.
The game doesn’t ultimately suffer from its technical issues. Instead I felt more like it was muddled by lack of creative cohesion or foresight. The game’s story was intriguing, but doesn’t really resolve in a manner which is coherent. The level of visual fidelity works, but doesn’t entirely seem premeditated. Yet it’s over very quickly, and in its broad strokes paints a captivating picture. Had it required me to spend more time to reach its pay off, I might have been bothered by this. To compare it to music, this works well as a free mix-tape, but I wouldn’t tolerate it as a full album. That said, I’m interested in what the artist’s point of view is. If they were to be signed, I’d likely want to check out what they could put out with the support of a record label.
Si la perspective de vous immerger dans une petite aventure de deux ou trois heures, dans laquelle de menues énigmes serviront de prétexte à l'exploration d'un endroit surréaliste dans une ambiance assez reposante, vous pouvez jeter un oeil à The Norwood Suite. Toutefois, il faut garder à l'esprit que son approche très étrange de la narration, son apparent vide de sens et son esthétique bien particulière ne seront pas du goût de tout le monde, et en dépit de sa relative originalité, The Norwood Suite aura du mal à s'imposer comme un incontournable. Original, sympathique mais dispensable.
