Description: Chiaro and the Elixir of Life is a first-person virtual reality adventure game. Step into the role of Chiaro (voiced by Taylor Gray, Star Wars Rebels), a young engineer returning home to the forest of Neverain to build a machine called Boka and bring him to life with Elixir, a powerful ancient fuel. Together Boka and Chiaro form an unbreakable bond and embark on an epic adventure to find the lost Fountain of Elixir.
Review: If you enjoy fairytale style adventure games ‘Chiaro and the Elixir of Life’ is well worth a look. You play the role of an inventor who can make machines come to life and not just move, but be filled with life and personality. With its bright and colourful world, the game looks amazing and the Steampunk influences leave a little feeling of magic and mystery from start to finish. While it isn’t the most challenging of games it does take about 4-5 hours to finish which does just about justify the £23.79 asking price, but to make sure you get your money’s worth I would wait for a sale price, but definitely consider giving it a go.
