The Toymaker’s Bequest is a gorgeous clockwork puzzle game that touches on a sensitive issue.
Gameplay is a lot like The Room where it features multiple stories to play through. The current build has just one of four planned stories that show the struggles of a toymaker in a society that doesn’t accept the LGBT perspective. She tells her stories through small little tidbirts of clockwork toys in a unique and emotional puzzler.
Dora and Agnes, two escapologists who deeply care for each other are the main characters in this story. It takes place in a marionette theater and has them escaping a tank of water. The game is a story and you need to solve various puzzles in order to activate mechanisms in the theater that progresses the game. They’re not difficult, as that’s not the point of the game. It’s more for the emotional experience and narration you’ll experience as you solve the puzzles.
If you like these type of games and you want an emotional adventure packed with puzzle elements, try out this unique experience. It’s amazing.
