About this game
Developer: Zoink Games
Content Rating: Everyone
Fe is a new type of platform adventure where the story is up to you to discover, without handholding, told wordlessly through the discoveries you make during gameplay. Run, climb, and glide your way through a dark Nordic forest and explore its living, breathing ecosystem filled with secrets and mystical creatures. At the heart of the experience is a tactile, analogue song mechanic that allows you to communicate and speak to every living thing in the forest. Learn a diverse array of animal cries that allow you to befriend or manipulate any creature - even plants. Have birds guide you, bears fight for you and have plants grow berries that help you overcome the Silent Ones. Become Fe and discover a world that you will never want to leave.

Fe is a wonderful and endearing adventure that’s slightly let down by niggling control issues. This game brilliantly merges stealth and platforming together, with a collection of well designed puzzles thrown in for both meaning and balance. The visual presentation remains rich and diverse throughout, serving up an experience that wont be forgotten in a hurry.
Fe is a short adventure, only coming in for me at about four to five hours. There's more to do afterwards, as the rest of the world opens up without the pesky enemies, leaving players free to explore. Given how frustrating some of the stealth sequences proved to be, part of me feels that this should have been what the game was from the outset, leaving players free to explore and only asking them to solve puzzles related to the songs.
I’m disappointed that I didn’t love Fe, and I hate being so harsh on a game I was very much looking forward to, but I can’t understate how frustrated the game’s issues left me. Though perhaps that frustration was compounded by the fact I was hoping for so much more. Fe is by no means a bad game; Zoink! truly did flex its muscles and show us it’s capable of so much more, but Fe’s only a minor stepping stone.
