"Chapter 1 itself is on the short side, and don't expect to finish with more answers than questions, but the series shows a lot of promise, and later this year we'll see if it can continue the momentum."

"Tainted Olive - Chapter 1 has a pretty engrossing story that is well worth playing through to read about and the hand drawn graphics are amazing in my opinion. Check this game out."
"This introductory chapter to a new series from Black Olive Games sketches out an interesting new fantasy world."
"Wow...a really touching but short adventure! Reminded me of the glory of old adventure games. Looking forward to the sequel."

"This is one of the best renditions of a full RPG I've seen here or many other sites. I'm a big fan of the point-and-click style of games, and I love RPGs. This has a story that seems intriguing and not too crazy. I love the art style, the sound did well to set the mood, and I liked the dialogue system."

"One of the best point-and-click games I've ever played. A couple of minigames to keep me interested. And the items to find aren't just a pixel or the color black while in a dark area. 5/5"
