Sango: Tales From The Coral Cave is a magical little point and click adventure experience that tells heartwarming fables through handcrafted artwork that was drawn by 10 year old kids.
Drawing inspiration from The Coral Cave, Sango: Tales From The Coral Cave is composed of two separate short adventures set in Japan’s southern islands. One story tells the tale of a sea turtle who goes in search of a girl’s brother who is missing at sea and the other tells a tale of a hungry cat who helps a flying whale that suddenly appears at the local harbour. Both tales are steeped in a degree of magic and wonder, feeling very much like you’re uncovering little forgotten legends as you play through them.
There are only a few puzzles in the game, but they’re surprisingly inventive – requiring thought rather than just being fetch quests. It’s the charming artwork of Sango: Tales From The Coral Cave that’s the star of the show though – hand drawn by 10 year old kids (and some parents) during a 3 hour workshop, it really brings a childlike wonder to the game world. filling it with color, character and a feeling that this is a magical place where anything can happen – where whales can fly, cats can talk and crabs can get scared of being alone.
If you’re looking for something that’s guaranteed to brighten up your day. Sango: Tales From The Coral Cave is a delight. A heart warming couple of adventures that are packed full of charm and creativity. Highly recommended.
