Tumble through the grass as a wombat! Swim through shimmering lakes as a fish!

A story about forgiveness and redemption
Lost Ember departs from being a typical video game that focuses on fighting or puzzle-solving to tell a heartfelt story. It's an adventure game in which you will explore the ruins of an ancient empire from the perspective of a Wolf in search of their place in the world. Armed with the ability to control every animal you encounter, you must find a path to the city where your wolf companion's questions will be answered while searching for lost memories. Amazing story telling, stunning art, beautiful graphics, a breathtaking world to explore, a variety of collectibles to collect, beautiful music, a soothing environment, a touching story that will leave you in tears, and simply a magical experience. Lost Ember is a unique and unforgettable piece of art that you need to play no matter your preferences, especially if you love animals and nature. A truly hidden gem that I can't recommend enough and it's the best indie game I've ever played.

Spoiler Warning
First Game of German Developer Mooneye (hopefully not the last one) who started with a 2016 Kickstarter Campaign and bring this with a Small Team 2019.
You are a sleeping nameless Wolf. Than you got found from a Lost Ember, that cant speak to any Animal than you. Now you try get out of your Place together & find Destiny.
Strange is why the Wolf on such a lonely well hidden Place, how he comes to there, why is this and many Places under different Domes, that only breaks if you watch a special Memory?
Than after Prologue you have 6 Chapters to explore, find 77 Collectables (some are Easter Eggs from Super Mario (Strange Pipe, Achievements), Legend of Zelda (Triforce, Ocarina; Its Dangerous to Go Alone Achievement), Pokemon (Pokeball, Go Catch Them all Achievement for 6 Legendarys) Portal (Cube)), all Memorys and many different Mushrooms/ Seaflowers (142), 6 Legendary Light Animals & an Epilogue for the Ending.
Sometimes is strange how the People comes over so many big Pits (many old bridges must be broken in the past) because you can take any Animal (there are a lot, but only a few are really useful like Fish & Birds. Worms, Turtles, Sloth. They are to slow (not only in Slow Motion Mode) or dont even want to move completely. Some Animals have usage because they are small and can roll, dig, break special Walls (Elephant, Bull, Goat). But the Animal is most very close so no hard puzzle.
This is a Walking Simulator/ Explorer Game. No big riddles. Sometimes you can break a Wall as a Mole to let fall down a Tower. Thats it. You only need right Animal.
So this is more a Game focused on Story (nothing to special, some find it boring, some interesting, i like it, even if its sad at the End to let the Wolf alone, i wished we could follow too.
The Graphics really are good for this. Even with 30 Euros its still more a Indie or AA+ Game. Its Minimalistics with Objectives but i think its fits. Like it or not. Watch Screens/ Video. I like it.
Sound is fine. At the very End there is a Song, i heared a lot of Time because Guide and I love this Song, even after 3-5 Times still hearable. Dont aspect to much. I like it.
+++ Unique Stil/ Gameplay for People who want to Relax & Discover
++ The 4 Easter Eggs
+ Chapter Select (seeing which Level you missed Collectables, Mushrooms, Memorys for Steam Achievements is Missing
+ 100 % Easy Steam Achievements (but sometimes well hidden collectable Stuff)
+ 15 Trading Cards (5 Cards would be perfect, 6 super, 7 good)
--- If you dislike Walking Simulators, this will be boring
-- Game Time, if you rush through you will be done in maybe 1-3 hours only
- high Price, get it with 50-75 % Discount on a Store or FAIR Bundle (without 30 % for Steam), Support Developer please
- still some Bugs like stucking in the Wall with Bull (sometimes you must figure out the right Control like R for RAMMING)
- start Problems with the Camera Control but after a few Times it should run smoothly like it did at me (set it from 50 % to 25 % sensivity)
If you love Cute Stuff without Action, Explorer Games/ Walking SImulators/ Relaxing Games without Top Graphics or a Easy Game for 100 % Steam Achievement this Game could be YOURS. If not, than AVOID IT.

Review from Steam

its......hard to give this a honest review. It wasnt really a game, but it was more so like a very interactive movie. it had nice little mechanics with the animals, but there was hardly any suspension(only like 3 times when you had a sense of urgency).
the story wasnt all that great at the first half, very repetitive, nothing much going on. but roughly around chapter 4 is when things actually started getting interesting, and emotional. animals became slightly more diverse, and the environment became more diverse too, and the story itself started to get dramatic.
But....the game itself felt.....rushed....there were environments that didnt even have collision boxes, camera was very wonky, and there were times where i soft-locked myself on multiple occassions to where i had to restart at the last checkpoint. This story is good on the second half of it. but the first half was kind of boring and repetitive, environemnt seemed rushed, and i could tell there wasnt much tests for bugs or glitches, since there were many parts of the enivronment you can easily clip through or just flat out got soft locked.
Is this game worth $30? no. Is the Enviornment and story good? to an extent sort of but only towards the ending. It is a very short game tho, only 5 hours long. If you love story focused games, its got a nice story. But if you're looking more adventure/suspense than anything, its not the game for it. its pure story.
Honest answer, i'd give it 6.7/10.

Review from Steam

Lost Ember is truly a masterpiece with beautifully crafted environments, stylized creature designs, fantastic soundtrack and an emotional story. The story is visually told through the journey you go on as a wolf and your interaction with your orb friend. Along your adventure you will encounter 19 different animals that you can take control over to use their unique characteristics to get around obstacles and to proceed further along. The movement of each animal feels fluid and is highly fun to swim, run and fly through enormous levels that are built for an ecosystem. There are tons (236 to be precise) of collectibles hidden throughout the world that extends the game-play greatly including a chapter select option to go back if your missing any. It took me over ten hours to complete the game but that includes me stopping and taking in the mesmerizing habitats. Overall, the game is very relaxing with soothing music and beautiful art style. Highly recommended

This game is about possessing cute animals and dislocating them from their families.

Review from Steam

Pros
- Very pretty and soothing game to explore and collect stuff. Most of my time went just while gaping around and taking screenshots of everything.
- Love the art style, and especially the wolf. Huge droopy ears and miserable expression = instant bawling.
- The story is well-told, very important and something you don't see often especially in video games.
- Huge cryfest warning at the end. Bring tissues.
Cons
- Some minor graphic bugs.
- Toggle would've been more comfy. As Wolf you have to push shift to run. As a bird or fish you gotta mash space bar. My poor pinky finger and space.
- Grabbed this one from sale for 12€. Worth the money, but considering I took 6 hours to beat it and I wasn't even rushing, I'd say full price (30€) is too much for such a short game.
Judgement
Must buy if you like beautiful, zen, exploration and story oriented games!
