You know what they say about hypes: either they live up to what’s being said or they disappoint you with the reality.
There’s a lot of hype surrounding CARAVAL. When you read the reviews in Amazon, there are lots of positive reviews. I agree with most of them–the magic, the fantasy, the beautiful scenery and stuff in Caraval (the game)–it’s hard not to get swept away. The twists and turns are compelling; with each new layer peeled away, each new revelation, you’ll go “wow”, “oh!” and the truth–or what you know as truth–is turned upside-down and you get to see things differently.
