“Particularly intriguing is the graphic style of the game. Although Freud’s Bone was born as a Kickstarter projectmanaged to get a lot of support from the public by managing to reach three times the pre-set monetary goal and vincendo al Red Bull Indie Forge Award 2020. All of which paid off with one simple but effective graphic style that alternates original 2D graphics with a series of graphic novel-style cinematics really nice.”
