Video Review


'Kelvin' is done in a colorful and beautifully animated hand-drawn style, like the games of yore but with modern polish. Animations are diverse and not limited to the generic movements that accompany all NPCs in every adventure game ever. Except for the aforementioned clicking problems, the interface and environments are easy to manage. There are no problems with the framerate, unsurprisingly.

Audio Review


At some point in Early Access, the wholly text-based dialogue was replaced with solid voice acting. Kelvin stands out, but the caliber of performances across the board make for a much more enjoyable experience. The music and sound effects are serviceable.

Final Thoughts

'Kelvin and the Infamous Machine' is a fitting tribute to the golden days of point-and-click gaming. What it lacks in length it makes up for in heart and dad jokes galore. If you yearn for a good adventure and have a few hours to spare, it won't disappoint.
