The story is quite simple and it is directed by the same silly template of most adventure games. You play as Ginger, an enthusiastic but lovable orphan whose quest is to find her Uncle Harry and find out about his mysterious past. Travel through a series of beautifully illustrated scenes, solving puzzles and engaging in a lot of weird but wholesome adventures. The storyline is told through small, character-focused cut-outs, who encourage players to interact with them and use their imagination to solve problems.
The overall aesthetic of the game is pleasant; there's nothing too fancy, but it does feel like a quality game is being made. The main character, Ginger, is drawn in a very lifelike manner, while the art style and animations are very nice. It's clear that this game was created by someone with little regard for detail but, like with most things in life, it is simply a matter of opinion. Dinner With An Owl might not be your kind of game but, if you're willing to put up with a little awkwardness, you will have a lot of fun with it.
