Featherweight is a short point and click adventure game by Ben304. It is about a war between two factions of what appear to be robots. You start the game in a time of little hope for your side, the war is going badly and no one seems to have the will to even try anymore. A featherweight, a scout unequipped to handle combat situations, from your side is captured and no one will do anything about it except a fellow featherweight Thadd. Against all odds he will attempt to make his way into the enemy encampment and rescue his compatriot, and perhaps bring hope back to his people along the way.
Great 2D graphics.
Very short and lacking in much character building and backstory. It is never explained why Thadd is different and willing to risk his life in a hopeless mission, nor what had recently made him this way or kept him sheltered enough to not have to test his bravery before. Nor is who, what, or why of the factions explained.
A short enjoyable adventure game.
