A tale of family emotions and tensions, Little Kite soars high onto Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S today, delivering a heartfelt point-and-click adventure in the process.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, after previously doing the rounds on PC (Mostly Positive reviews on Steam so that’s a good sign) and Switch, if you’re after a new clickable hit, this could sort you out.
It tells the tale of Mary and her son, Andrew and after her husband sadly passed, Mary remarries, this time to Oliver, hoping to keep the family unit solid. But problems occur – violence and alcohol abuse mostly – and this means Mary must make some strong decisions, in the hope of keeping Andrew safe.
Premise-wise, Little Kite belies its lovely title to deliver something extremely hard hitting. But with a couple of worlds to enjoy – a real world and that of a fantasy land – plus a ton of puzzles at hand, there’s next to no reason why Little Kite doesn’t have what it takes to really hit the heights. Just be sure you know what you’re getting yourself into ahead of time.
It’s helped by a pretty decent price point too, with an £8.39 upfront payment ensuring you’ll be able to get your download of Little Kite moving from the Xbox Store. There’s Xbox Play Anywhere support in house too, letting you take your Little Kite and fly it wherever you see fit.
We’re currently mid-flight with our full review of Little kite on Xbox and will provide our thoughts as and when we can. For now though, let us know in the comments if you will be giving this one a look.
Little Kite is a point-and-click story driven adventure. The game highlights the problems of a struggling family, in which one person has given up, and another tries to correct mistakes of the past. The main characters are Mary and her son Andrew. After the death of her husband, Mary married for a second time, to Oliver, in an attempt to create a full-fledged family for her son. But everyday, problems consume the new husband and he finds his solace in alcohol. Soon, they find domestic violence becomes commonplace. Mary’s patience and inaction, so habitual and convenient for everyone but little Andrew, brings the life of their family to an extreme point – a point where she needs to make a bold decision.
