The world is beautiful in its cartoon depiction and full of wilderness, lost folk, strange creatures and mysterious ruins. Play involves exploring the world to discover a way forward and solving environmental puzzles to open those routes and doors for Ember.
As you progress you discover special abilities, items and interactions that let you solve puzzles in new ways. For example, your telekinetic ability lets you manipulate objects from a distance so you can access switches and levers you can't touch.
The result is a game that tells a grand adventure story but avoids feeling overwhelming or too complex. You are limited to walking, running and picking things up but these actions are put to ingenious use and make each area like a jewellery box of puzzles to be slowly discovered as you investigate.

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Being able to progress at their own pace, while also finding satisfying puzzles is a good fit for young children. Provided children enjoy a bit of tension and excitement this is a beautiful game to share with them, even from a young age.
