Lush and colorful settings create the backdrop for a highly imaginative story of adventure and self-discovery. The first thing that sets Roki apart is the handcrafted artwork that creates both a snowy 'real' world, and the fantasy world populated by the Four Guardians (Bear, Wolf, Stag and Raven). There are also fantasy monsters that appear to be manifestations of children's toys. While the story's text-driven, and there's a lot to explore, the path through to the ending takes a somewhat linear approach. Even so, Roki has a fresh and startling honest approach with its story.

This game's about logic puzzles. Want to make a molotov cocktail to throw at a monster's hand? You'll need a bottle of alcohol, cloth, fire and voila. But you can't focus on those items solely. The story that Tove tells her brother at the start is about self-realization, and this tale involves not only love but respect. The sound quality is fine, but the stars here are the narrative and visual style. There may be elements too intense for younger players, but even with that said, Roki is delightfully refreshing, with a wonderful art style and captivating story.
