Showcase reviews of J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars

Below you can see these reviews we are really proud of. They are part of the review collection accessible from the “all reviews” link.

IndieGames Adventure Game Pick (Konstantinos Dimopoulos)

“Among the Stars, while still a game mainly created by only two people, is simply brilliant. First of all it fixed everything that was wrong with the original from the aforementioned puzzles to the way Rachel Manners, the protagonist, looks and went on and added and changed and tweeked and removed stuff, until it turned itself into a vastly expanded, brilliantly designed and excellent looking game with one of the best soundtracks of 2014.”

GamersFTW 4.5/5 (Emma Drake)

“Overall I highly recommend this game, I think it might be somewhat of an unexpected treasure for those who love old style point and click adventures. It’s definitely a refreshing, thorough and intricate take on the genre. It’s very well written and I found it a bit of a ‘page turner’ the ending is satisfying and makes sense.”

GameBoomers B++ (flotsam)

“Now we have Among the Stars, not a sequel or a prequel, but a reworked version of the original. Not just a new frock either; this is a complete overhaul, Pretty Woman style.”

APG Nation 8.5 / 10 (Jeff Pannell)

“Adventure games that well written, executed and are just fun to play don’t happen all too often outside of Double Fine’s work and Telltale games.”

Game Industry 4 / 5 (Greg Crowe)

“All in all. J.U.L.I.A. Among The Stars is a good use of both your 20 dollars and about 10 hours time. It is a worthy successor to the original, but it is a fantastic game in it’s own right. It easily deserves the four GiN Gems I gave it.”

Chalgyr’s Game Room 8/10 (Nick)

“…it should provide plenty of fun for gamers interested in a good story, excellent art and some decent puzzle-solving. I will admit I did not even realize that Rachel’s adventures had been brought to Steam until the other day, but I have to say I am very glad to have joined her once again in this satisfying adventure.”

Big Red Barrel 4/5 (Kath Payne)

“For sci-fi enthusiasts out there, Among the Stars is a definite treat. There are six planets to visit, technology inspired puzzles and even the relaxing nature of planet scanning, which happily reminded me of Mass Effect 2. It doesn’t hurt that the game looks and sounds gorgeous, too.”

NRS Gamers (Italian language) 8.2/10 (Dreimar)

” Senza avvalersi di milioni di budget e migliaia di persone, gli sviluppatori sono riusciti a realizzare qualcosa di interessante, divertente, appagante. La qualità e gli argomenti affrontati dalla trama, avrebbero fatto comodo ad una certa gigantesca produzione, che inizia per D e finisce per estiny, così povera e banale da far piangere.”

“J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars is a MUST PLAY GAME for those who love using their brains to overcome interesting challenges.”
