The Night of the Rabbit out in the Wild

Daedalic’s latest slick-looking point-and-clicker, The Night of the Rabbit is out now. The game features hand-drawn imagery and “tricky puzzles”:

Lose yourself in a tale of magic and wonder, where anything is possible and where nothing is quite what it seems: join young Jerry and follow a peculiar white rabbit to the wondrous realm of Mousewood, a land where critters can speak and where mystery abounds.

It is here that Jerry’s dream of being a magician comes true, though a haunting, sinister force casts a long shadow over the forest. Someone offers the residents of Mousewood a deal of their lifetime – tickets to the greatest magic show that the world has ever seen. But the price is steep, as they’ll have to bet their houses, their money… and their lives.

As the shadows grow deeper, the residents of Mousewood have only Jerry to turn to. On an adventure full of laughter and tears, joy and fear, the young boy will face the ultimate trial, leaving behind the world he once knew, and his childhood, too, will become a thing of the past.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s John Walker called it “unquestionably charming”, though he also said it dragged on a bit. It’s out now on Steam and, and perhaps some other places too.
