Little Folk of Faery
Beautiful to look at but not very challenging
Like the other reviewers I was entranced by the look of the game. The graphics are truly outstanding and the world beautifully rendered. I did not have any technical issues, unlike one of the other reviewers, no matter how much activity was going on.
The thing I found hardest was basically having to leave the game to run on its own. I am more used to playing a game continuously. With this, however, it can be a bit like watching paint dry while the folk carry out the tasks you have set them. You really have to go away and come back when they are finished, with just occasional monitoring to make sure they are still working and not being bothered by the mists.
I enjoyed the game a lot but think I prefer something that I can watch and join in continuously.
There also was one problem which the developer should address. At the end of the game, after all the quests were finished, I was still collecting the various moonstones, runes and breaths. However, I found that I would collect the same moonstones and breaths multiple times but they would not register in the Tome. This was the only technical glitch I found, other than that, everything else to that point ran smoothly.

Lots of fun, but a little too easy
I love virtual and role playing games, wish there were more.
Everything was delightful about this game, except they were a little too helpful with the guidance. Would have liked it to be longer.

Cute Fantasy Game with Beautiful Graphics
Good points : Lovely graphics , cute and fun characters , great atmosphere for fantasy lovers , sound and other things pretty good...
Bad / annoying : often experience graphical glitches when referring to the book in the game that shows you info and what goals you've reached ect.
have to keep your tribe small because you will most likely get a game-ruining crash if you try to have over ten or so tribe members keep it around ten or under and you should be fine ...I had to remake my tribe and start all over again because of this one major flaw in the game...the issue with graphical glitches feel a bit minor in comparison to the fact that wanting a lot of members in the tribe will crash your game to the point of having to delete and renew your tribe
There's not enough female characters in the game and most of the creatures in the game only had a male version - IMO there should've been more sprites and there should've been more female characters in the game and more characters in general in the game along with some extra goals to strive for and more story after the main story is finished and all the little sticks and things have been collected. I revisit the world from time to time but my little virtual friends don't have much to do anymore so it has become somewhat of a boring place to visit. But what a beautiful bore it is! I wish the place and the inhabitants were real.

Beautiful Game, but Slow
I bought this game because of the great reviews. When I begain playing it, I was enamored with the beautiful graphics. I have never seen a Big Fish game quite like it! However, the game play is very slow. This is one of those games that continues even when you close the game. The problem is that if you almost have to close the game and just let it run because your workers move so slow, even after being upgraded! As I was playing this one, I was continually wondering if I was really having any fun. Although this is a visually appealing game, I probably would not buy it again.

A little disappointed
In a nutshell: you have to complete the challenges to remove the fog from each area while increasing your villagers skills. Once the fog is removed from the whole village, that is it, game is over.
There isn't much to do other than making sure each villagers are doing something. Petting the dog was cute.
If you like to sit back and watch a game pretty much play itself, then this is for you.

Not sure about this game. Yes, it's beautiful and it just draws you in and makes you want to like it, but by the end of the trial i was still lost. I couldn't keep up with the people or what i was suppose to be doing or how from one minute to the next. Maybe it's just me but i don't get the order or flow of things and i really wanted to like this game too.
