Glad it's finally here!

I played this little gem as a demo at PAX South back in January and I loved the Pajama Sam vibe. Beautiful artwork, cute animation and some pretty music. My only complaint is that it only took me 2 hours to beat. I only wish the company does more in their future games!

Cute But Ridiculously Short

It's a very cute game with beautiful coloring, but it's crazy short. An hour long at best. It's your basic point and click adventure with a few easy puzzles. Due to it's length, there is virtually no story... just a fragment of one. I got it on sale for $8, but I recommend waiting until it hits $5 or less.

Four out of five

I liked the art, the music, the puzzles, and especially the characters. I would have given it five stars, if not for the fact that it was so short. I wanted to explore more of the other world and learn more about what happened there and why. And maybe visit at least one additional world besides that one. But regrettably, the game doesn't cover nearly that much ground. Even so, I do feel that it was worth playing. So it gets a four.

Great short game.

This game was so well done. It reminds me of Dragon's Lair in the art work. One thing I wish was it was longer as I was just getting immersed the game ended 😢. Overall however the game was a joy and had some great moments of comedy. It was a great, however short, game to play.

I grew up with point and click adventure games, And Ive always loved hand made art over 3d animation . GG. The story is solid , The charaters are charming, and the world is a treat to be a part of. The dialogue and voice acting in more emotion scene leave something to be desired , but it does stop the game from bring you a 10/10 experience.

Great visuals but wayy to short

I was looking forward to this game for months. I loved the look of it and love point and click games. that being said this game is way to short. not enough time to even grow attached to any of the characters

Cute, albeit short adventure

The Little Acre is a fun point-and-click adventure game with a very nice artstyle and very good animation. The story was easy to follow along, and there was an adequate amount of puzzles to be solved through the game. Unfortunately, the game is rather short side, and I did run into a bug that forced me to restart the section near the end of the game. Also, despite the wonderful animations, the audio was rather lacking. There were moments where I couldn't hear spoken dialogue, and the full-animated segments seemed to have little to no SFX. Also, spoken dialogue came through my rear speakers, oddly enough. Despite that, the game is still worth a playthrough. It's very cute, but I wish it were fleshed out more. Here's to hoping the developers sort out these issues in their next game.
