Harvey’s New Eyes stars Lilli, a shy convent-school pupil whose only escape from her suffering under the strict rule of the mother superior is her imagination. When the evil psychologist Dr. Marcel is brought in to brainwash the children, he hypnotizes Lilli with mental blocks that stop her from acting out. Lilli has to find a way to break her mental blocks, face her fears, and help her best friend Edna, a fellow student and the protagonist of Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, to escape the doctor’s nefarious clutches.
Harvey’s New Eyes is full of dark humor, absurd situations and clever puzzles that will make fans of humorous point-and-click adventures like Monkey Island feel right at home. Lilli’s adventure oscillates between the whimsical and the bizarre, and the game’s deadpan narrator can’t help but spice up the story with sarcastic comments. The game’s quirky characters and detailed locations are lovingly hand-drawn with a cartoon-like 2D art style.
