Wikipedia:

Edna et Harvey s'évadent (Edna bricht aus en version originale) est un jeu vidéo d'aventure développé par Daedalic Entertainment et sorti en 2008 en Allemagne. Le jeu a été édité en France trois ans plus tard en juin 2011. Le jeu a souvent reçu de bonnes critiques de la part des sites spécialisés dans le jeu d'aventure, bien que certaines critiques aient été plus mitigées.

Edna et Harvey s'évadent possède une suite nommée Harveys neue Augen en Allemand et Edna & Harvey: New eyes en Anglais (titre utilisé en France).

Synopsis

Le joueur dirige une jeune fille nommée Edna, enfermée au début du jeu dans la cellule d'un établissement de neurologie. Edna ne se souvient pas de la raison de son enfermement dans cette cellule. Son but est de parvenir à s'échapper de sa prison avec son lapin en peluche nommé Harvey.

Description [en]

Edna wakes up in the padded cell of an insane asylum with no memory of her past or how she ended up there.
Only one thing is for certain: She has been wrongfully imprisoned and will have to escape! After all, she feels entirely sane and her speaking stuffed toy bunny Harvey wholeheartedly agrees. Together they undertake a daring escape attempt that sees them meeting a host of kooky characters, including the Man in the Bee's Costume and the siamese twins Hoti and Moti. But the sinister head of the asylum Dr. Marcel will do everything to stop Edna. What evil scheme is afoot? Slowly, Edna starts to recover her memories...



Wikipedia:

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is a 2008 adventure game for Windows starring a young woman and her toy rabbit. The object of the game is to escape from a mental hospital which they find themselves in at the beginning of the game.

The game began as a university project in Germany. Although that version received an outstanding reception, the English game merely received a mixed reception with both average and low review scores, mostly due to the sloppy translation.

Gameplay

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is an adventure game in the same vein as LucasArts' pre-1994 games created using the SCUMM engine. The game screen shows a two-dimensional cartoon world where Edna, the playable character is incarcerated within a mental hospital. The bottom edge of the screen contains a list of verbs which must be clicked on before the player clicks on an item within the game world in order to manipulate it. When the player tries to combine or effect one item with another each combination produces a different response, unlike in most games of this type where an incorrect combination would result in a response of "I don't know why you'd want to do that." During play expensive in-game objects such as cars can be defaced by the player, this does not affect the game in any tangible way but represents an act of rebellion.

Plot

Edna awakes in a padded cell with her toy rabbit, Harvey, who she talks to throughout the game. She has no recollection of how she came to be in the cell and must escape. In order to do so, she navigates along the ventilation shafts and gathers friends (other inmates) as well. Such friends have mental issues like two people in one sweater, one trying to become an energy being, and another who can make keys to any lock. While there, she decides to clear her father's name, although he was killed for murdering the son of the asylum's owner, Dr. Marcel. Harvey then gives Edna the ability to relive certain events in her past, called 'Tempomorphing'. After escaping in Dr. Marcel's car, they crash in a swamp and go separate ways, the 'Keymaster' following Edna. He wanted revenge on Edna for releasing 'Someone who should never be released', himself. After escaping a Church that he locked both Edna and himself in, she finds herself at her own house where she learns that she was the one who committed the murder by pushing Dr. Marcel's son down the stairs and that her father took the blame. Dr. Marcel then arrives and asks her to come back with him so he can have her memory erased as her father asked Dr. Marcel to do. Though he succeeded several times, Harvey always brought her memories back. Edna is then given two options: Destroy Harvey and have her memory erased, or listen to Harvey and push him down the stairs as his son was. If she listens to Dr. Marcel, she cuts Harvey to pieces with scissors, is renamed and given house chores to do for the rest of her life, which she then adores doing. If she listens to Harvey, then she knocks Dr. Marcel down the staircase with a mallet from his office and is never heard from again, the only clue of her fate being the remains of Harvey found by the ocean.
