    I played it through the end.

    I have got very mixed feelings. One one hand the game has nothing to envy to commercial games regarding graphics, music, voice acting and length, and I thought the story was cool for a large part. However I thought the ending was disappointing (although we's seen worse), in the first parts in particular I thought there were a lot of just going to the next location to talk to one NPC or pick one paper, sometimes the character exactly tells you what to do next or even just do it. The game is very linear, there is never two things you would simultaneously have to do, the game is basically cut into small sequences taking place in one or two screens and you won't make much use of your eventually filled inventory, mostly using the two or three items found directly there. In the end because of these reasons the puzzles which, fundamentally, could not be bad, are relatively easy and not that much fun to solve.

    Therefore I can't say I loved the game but it's very possible someone else could love it and I think that's it's worth giving a try for people interested in the premise of the game.

    I have a huge problem with Youtubers who think it's a good idea to show their face.

    This just got released by EA ... cause it's original. EA Originals.



    Edit: The trailer song is completely retarded but that's EA.

    Odd name. The word "Yoomurjak", pronounced the same and written as "yumurcak", means sort of a "naughty little boy" in Turkish. Sometimes used negatively, but more often in a jokingly lighthearted way.
