Coincidentally I'm playing this game at present, actually replaying it after several years.

There are action scenes but you don't have to be adept at running and jumping, and a bit of stealth, easily overcome by the main character's special power.

It's basically point and click with a lot of conversation choices that affect the outcome.

Gorgeous graphics, a great soundtrack and a story that packs an emotional punch.

Hi maggsie! wave I love this game! Beautiful graphics, and easy, casual gameplay. I don't remember any quick "action" sequences. No fighting or anything like that for sure, because I definitely don't like that kind of thing. And there is always a chance to go back if you are not quick enough with something. It's mostly casual gameplay. No running/jumping around at all. There are some stealth moments at end of game, but the game resets and sends you back automatically if you mess up. And if you take it slow and steady, you'll be fine. Enjoy gaming, and I'm curious to know what you think of the game by the end. grin

There is a walkthrough here for the PC version

I can't help much with the poor keyboard controls. I've played keyboard-controlled games where the game was actually made for gamepad and I was never able to adapt to them. These games were made for console (first release was on console) and PC controls of any sort were obviously an afterthought. Instead I had to go buy a gamepad. I make sure to avoid these kinds of games now, but at the time I was playing them the gamepad was a good investment.
