As video games become more and more about violence it's hard to find something pleasant or enchanting. Fans of adventure games like Sam & Max or Secret of Monkey Island will love this fairy tale. You play the part of Jeremy Hazelnut a young boy on his second last day of summer holiday with a homework assignment postponed until the last minute and the chance for adventure dwindling away Jeremy is whisked away by the Marquis De Hoto, a magical rabbit who takes him on as an apprentice.
In the woodland village of Mousewood (and now a couple of inches tall) Jeremy meets the many furry inhabitants and goes on errands for them while the greater story unfolds. It does get a bit too wordy occasionally but it's still one of the best adventure games I have played.
The animation is lovely and the locations are whimsical. The voice acting can get a bit stiff but the character design is so cute you might not notice. If you see this game in a store or on Steam then don't hesitate to make a purchase if you are a fan of the genre. I finished the game in about 15 hours but missed 3 of the achievements. There are also some Steam trading cards featured.
