An uneasy task

Product: Finding Teddy
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
In simple terms, Finding Teddy is a point-and-click adventure. But this is a game that does so few things simply that it'd seem churlish to try and describe it in that way. It enjoys wrapping you up in confusion and mysteries almost as much as it enjoys showing you your grisly demise.
This is pointing and clicking with the introspection and clumsy narrative stripped away. There's no inner monologue here - just digital riddles designed to flummox and confound, and a little girl who's a dab hand at whistling.

The game begins with the main character, a small monochrome girl, having her teddy stolen by what looks like the leg of an enormous spider. Being young and adventurous she follows the leg into the wardrobe whence it came. And that's where you come in.
Finding Teddy's hands-off approach will likely be too much for many to take, but there's an intriguing and enthralling point-and-click adventure here that's just waiting to be discovered
