Ever wonder what life is like as an orphan in a strict Catholic Convent? Lilli will show you in Edna and Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes by Daedelic Entertainment. This point-and-click game is available on Steam ($19.99 for PC).
You play Lilli, a young orphan at a Catholic Convent. Lilli has several things that she is doing at once. The first challenge is that you must help your best friend, Edna, dig up a garden to search for a treasure. In order to help her dig it up, you must first get a shovel. In order to get the shovel, you have to get into the cellar which is locked. The key is in the bottom of a well and you must find a way to get it.
Edna is desperate to escape the evil Dr. Marcel, a psychiatrist that she had encountered before. You help Edna escape from the convent. Once she is gone, Lilli goes in search of her. Lilli has many obstacles in her path to success. Some of these are Mother Superior Ignatz, bullies, other classmates, and Doris (the cook). As Lilli, you must explore all parts of the convent, its grounds, and the outside environment to solve each puzzle.
Edna and Harvey: Harvey’s New Eye is a fun interactive game to play that always has you thinking about how you can solve one of the puzzles that Lilli is presented with. The colorful cast of characters add depth to the game. Mother Superior is a grumpy woman who is very harsh on Lilli.
Poor Lilli seems like she can do nothing right for this woman. Lilli must also deal with condescending classmates that put her down. In the Chapel, Lilli finds Frank who is obsessed with the Knights Templar and believes that if he can find their hidden tombs, he will find the secrets to the conspiracies of the Catholic Church. In the cellar, you will find Memphis who hides in the stove because he believes it is the only safe place. If you sing to him, he will sing back. You must get him out of the stove so you can start it for Doris to cook.
As you wander around the convent and its grounds, you will find items that you can pick up. The inventory is large and can store quite a lot. To use these items, you use the left mouse button. If it is the wrong item or can’t be used, use the right mouse button to put it back into your inventory.
Edna and Harvey has some very unique features including the mouse pointer. It is in the shape of a bunny head, which when it is over something that can be accessed, the eyes will appear. The characters are also very unique as they are very colorful and only have mouths when they speak.
The graphics are unique as well, as they cartoonish and over exaggerated, but not overdone. The interface with each character allows you to choose what to talk about. You can also repeat the conversation if needed. The words will appear on the screen as each character speaks. The colors of some items are not realistic, but add to the game.The sound track adds to the atmosphere as well. For example, when in the Chapel talking with Frank, the music is very gothic and fits the surroundings.
Enda and Harvey is a great game for all point-and-click adventure lovers. The unique characters and interaction between them leads to a game unlike any other. Deadelic has created a unique and quirky game that will surprise all who play it. You never know what will happen when you click on a character or item. So grab your stuffed bunny and hop to your computer.
