The ru­ral ’50s Ir­ish set­ting is well re­alised, though in truth it’s not the en­vi­ron­men­tal de­tail you’ll no­tice first. In­stead, it’s the char­ac­ter an­i­ma­tion, rem­i­nis­cent of the work of Don Bluth, that draws the eye: it isn’t al­ways the smoothest, but it’s joy­ously ex­pres­sive, with most in­ter­ac­tions prompt­ing a unique phys­i­cal re­sponse from Ai­dan or Lily. It’s less ef­fec­tive when you’re ex­plor­ing, with some ques­tion­able scal­ing: in a few places, Ai­dan feels awk­wardly su­per­im­posed onto the world.
