Having grown up in Austria, I am very familiar with the legend of Augustin. Even more I was happy about this lovely discovery, the characters are nicely done.

What a lovely historic miniature! Nicely written, technically well done by cat (runs super on my Linux/Wine), and vested with wonderfully coloured costumes and high-res animations by Creamy.

What makes this MAGS game really shine is it's source of inspiration: The light melody dealing with death is still well-known after centuries, even here where I live. So the interpreter Raeff is standing now in the best Viennese tradition (Schubert, Hofmannsthal, etc.). Bravo!

This short game is amazing! I especially love the bagpipes/violin piece (great job Raeff!). The animations are charming and the unexpected turn is great! The puzzles are fun and are just enough to keep the player busy while the story unfolds. And what a nice little story it is!

I would love to see this game fully-voiced at some point with some good singers to fully recreate the medeval musical mood.

Wonderful graphics and a well written little game!
