4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Much Fantastic June 8, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Best friends, Lydia and Celeste were separated eight years ago when, after the death of her mother, Celeste's father became a director of the far-off Dragonvale Academy. Now Lydia is about to start her first day as a student of magic at Dragonvale and looks forward to being reunited with her friend. But when she arrives, she finds the academy deserted except for one odd character: a wolf who claims to be a dragon. Where is everybody? What's going on here? Can this wolf really be trusted? These are just some of the questions you must answer as you explore the school.

Keepsake, the first game from the Canadian Wicked Studios, is a lovely 3D point and click adventure in the tradition of Syberia. And I mean "lovely" literally: the first thing to strike you is the beauty of the environments. The castle is ornate with knotwork motifs and colour themes, making exploration a pleasure. There isn't a lot of animation, but what there is is well done; the water effect was especially nice. Characters are slightly less well-realised, but still quite good.

The sound is also quite good. The music is beautiful, with a different haunting motif for each character and section of the castle. The f/x are somewhat limited and a bit repetetive: lots of footsteps and bird calls, fire and water sounds, etc. However, they fit well with the design of the rest of the game, so I can't complain. I'm very surprised to see so many complaints here about the dialog. I really saw nothing wrong with it or the voice acting. Rather, conversation is used to explain points that are not necessarily elucidated by the action (the philosophy of the magical system, for example) as well as to develop the characters and their relationships. I considered that good writing, not the opposite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing in spite of the footsteps. April 18, 2006
By gen
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
How can a company,Wicked Studios make the best adventure game in years, with an intriguing story, a great female character and incredible beautiful and amazing graphics and not work out a little thing like the sound of footsteps? When the character stops walking -- the footsteps continue. I guess because otherwise, the game would be perfect.

In spite of the footsteps this is a perfect game those of us who like fantasy, castles, dragons, magic, adventuresome girls, clever puzzles with hints and the incredible scenes that will have you on your knees wondering why you can't go to magic school.

Young Lydia comes to Dragonvale Academy to study magic with her closest friend, Cynthia. Upon her arrival she finds the school deserted and so begins her quest to find her friend and discover what happened. She has a companion to talk to, Zac, a wolf who was locked up and therefore escaped the disappearance. Zac, is somewhat suspicious -- claiming to be originally a dragon but sounding more and more like a student. Lydia's character is strong and adventurous and she gains in wisdom and awareness as she goes through the trials to qualify as a student at the Academy.

The game play takes place in two castles and a sanctuary. -- But what castles! The designers have evoked the feeling of being in a truly magical world with tapestries, dragon sculptures, gardens, endless corridors with flickering lights all created in a gigantic scale that both intimidates and amazes.

The lushness and construct is beyond human scale and so evokes the feeling of being in a truly magical place. Magical teleportation pads send you soaring dizzingly through the towering heights instead of just appearing from one place to another.

3.0 out of 5 stars If only the characters were mimes... February 3, 2007
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
As others have mentioned in their reviews, the music, sound effects, and graphics were excellent. Unfortunately, the dialog and voice "acting" were terrible. The game play was extremely linear although you could travel to most places at any time. This combination often resulted in puzzles you could not solve and spending huge amounts of time going back to areas you have already been. Although the graphics were well done, you often had to travel though 6 or more scenes just to get from one place to another.

The logic puzzles were well done, but the riddle-type puzzles were so obscure that they made no sense, even with the hints! The same is true for the order in which you had to solve puzzles. Without the buit in hint system, you would have no idea what needed to be done next, especially in the towers.

Finally, the plot and character development were just awful. Within the first 2 hours you knew all the characters, their background and even new how the game would finally end. All conversations past this point are repetitive and add nothing but extending the time it takes to play the game.

By the time we were half way though the game, we just wanted it to be over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good game! September 20, 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I decided to try this game because it was listed as a similar game that customers purchased with other games that I really like. I am a fan of Longest Journey, Syberia, Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword, etc. etc. I wasn't expecting a whole lot when I started Keepsake, but I was looking to kill time because I love PC games. From the very start, I was swept into the story, the setting, the characters (I LOVE it when there is a fun mascot sharing your adventures!). The voice-overs and some graphics really are pretty unrefined, but that also makes the game more endearing. These factors could be the reasons this game is not listed way up there with some of the other titles I mention. I have added it to my list of favorite games, and I play games ALOT!
