Review from Steam

I am a tranquil gamer. I don't like horror, my motor skills and survival instincts are not very well developed and I like good stories and beautiful views that I can enjoy at a pace that is set by me, not by the game.
Valley gives me all of this, plus a challenge now and again: a not too difficult puzzle, a not too challenging shoot out.
The game (and the music!) is beautiful, the story is interesting, the world is magic. And I didn't find it short. Just long enough for the story to be told, leaving enough gaps to be filled in by our own imagination.
So thanks for this secret marvel. Let's keep it to ourselves ;)

Review from Steam

I really liked this game and it's flow, really love the movement system.
I didn't really care about the story but had a blast playing this.

Review from Steam

A nice compact game about a Hidden Valley that was being used during WW2 to conduct experiments and other activities i won't spoil. part of those experiments is the suit you wear throughout the game, essentially letting you run jump and traverse the Valley in otherwise impossible routes without the aid of the L.E.A.F suit.
Valley is quite a short game with my 9 hours being 100% completion, but for the price on a sale this is a very good pickup. The environments are a joy to look at and traverse through gaining new abilities as you go. The game is fairly basic in its mechanics, you'll never really have a lot of trouble but that's ok. I enjoy short focused experiences so play through it and soak in the views as you whiz past trees and lakes in your suit while uncovering the mysteries of the Valley.

Review from Steam

In 2022, Valley is a great game. I never finished my original playthrough, and revisiting it so many years later is was a treat. Despite the old graphics, it is still visually impressive, big setpieces and smooth animations, and some of the most fun gameplay ever. Speeding through a tram tunnel, leaping off of hills, and strafing away from enemies is one of the most fun I've ever had gaming. The story is really unique, as your character pieces the past together, and the detail and lore of the valley is so beautiful. Valley held me up by my collar and made me have fun, and it is truly one of the greats.

Review from Steam

good unity game for cheap price, it has different valley inside.

Review from Steam

What a uniquely beautiful story-line! Also, one of the best movement mechanics I have experienced in an open world exploration game. If there is anywhere you wanna trek to, everything is pretty much climbable. Had loads of fun using the movement mechanics to explore everything.
