  • Simplicity is the biggest strength of Old Man’s Journey. It doesn’t require you to be a genius or a master gamer, but to have a penchant for something more oft-kilter. That it manages to be a satisfying experience all without saying a single word is remarkable and definitely worth a look.

  • Touching and atmospherically dense story that impresses with simple innovative puzzle mechanics and great picture-book-like presentation.

  • PC PowerPlay

    A brief, gentle puzzle adventure tinged with melancholy. [Issue#264, p.71]

  • Old Man’s Journey is sweet, meandering and undemanding, a pleasant while-away that's full of feeling, at least for as long as the journey lasts.

  • In the brief time it takes to complete it, Old Man’s Journey plays out the calm yet deliberate journey of an aging man, set to right the wrongs of his youth. Here is a title that shines a positive philosophy onto a player’s path, reminding us that not everything about life must be hard and complicated. The Old Man’s Journey made me cry, but it also left me with a smile.

  • Short and a little too much flat gameplay wise, Old Man's Journey is a game which everyone who's looking for a simple puzzle adventure with a touching story should try. It will make you laugh and probably cry but in the end you'll enjoy every single second spent with this adorable old man, despite the obvious flaws.

  • A beautiful adventure with a superb presentation, great visuals and music, but a bit thin on content.

  • CD-Action

    Looking at charming, detailed hand-drawn environments is pure pleasure and the game’s simple story about priorities, plans and hopes is truly touching. [07/2017, p.42]

  • Old Man's Journey is such a gorgeous looking title, complete with a beautiful soundtrack. Those aspects are then draped over a moderately engaging puzzle idea, and comes with a story that aims to be touching, but will leave many feeling either apathetic to the theme, or actually frustrated by the progression of the old man's life and foolish choices.
