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.

It's all very lovely and (literally) harmonious, and carries with it some rather obvious metaphors to do with industrialisation and taking care of the planet and meeting aggression with love, and it's the sort of game that you can play with your children, or even leave your children to play alone quite happily. Coloured flowers and singing is a nice enough way to spend a rainy afternoon.
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.
As the game reaches a grand finale, I’m left with the satisfying knowledge that there is still much to explore, winkling out hidden gems and secrets. It’s one of those games that works for those who are happy sticking to the main quest, as well as completionists who want to see and collect everything. Some of the gem-collection challenges take practice and patience, but they are not required to complete the game.
