Sally Face is a beautifully drawn narrative-driven adventure game in which you explore the memories of a young boy with blue pigtails, a prosthetic face and a troubled past.
Played out via flashbacks whilst speaking to your therapist, Sally Face explores Sally’s mysterious past as he deals with some seriously traumatic events that have shaped his life. Episode One: Strange Neighbors, sees you exploring the new apartment block you and your father have moved into, meeting it’s odd inhabitants, making friends and getting to the bottom of a grizzly murder.
The writing and artwork are excellent throughout Sally Face, with the oddball characters you meet being a particular highlight – from a hermit who hands out tea to anyone who asks to a rather obsessive ‘glitter ponies’ toy collector. The episode is fairly short, and can be completed in around 15 minutes, but there are lots of hidden surprises to discover that hint at some supernatural phenomenon lurking in your apartment block (and perhaps you can even find some batteries for that Gear Boy handheld!)
Sally Face is currently seeking funding on IndieGoGo to allow the devs to complete more episodes, and after playing through Episode One, we really hope they get funded as we can’t wait to explore more of Sally’s story. A beautifully drawn and well written adventure with a nice mixture of humor and horror. Highly recommended.
