Review: Juniper’s Knot
Juniper’s Knot is a game that is hard to make sure whether it is a game or not. Therefore, I have come to start describing it as a “short novel with lots of illustrations and a soundtrack”. Quite longer than “game”, but it does get the point across.
It is hard to talk about this game without giving up any of its plot (which is pretty much the whole experience, minus the eye- and ear-candy), but I can safely say it is a very touching story, as described by the game’s site, “told from dual perspectives: that of a demon and a boy. It begins on an autumn morning in a silent town”.
It is a very deep experience, with the storytelling focus switching from words to sounds to pictures in a very fluid and natural manner. Players are encouraged to let themselves be absorbed by the story and pay attention to all the minimal details injected into this very well-polished piece of art.
Also, it’s free. Enjoy!
