I've only bought two CE's and they're both Vogat games. Mystery Trackers: Raincliff and now F.A.C.E.S.
Mystery Trackers is by Elephant Games. Are they a part of Vogat?

Oops. My mistake. Thanks RenaissanceMom. Don't know what I was thinking. I love Elephant Games and Vogat. Two of the best developers of casual games out there imo.

just finished the game.....LOVED IT! I really like these erie, dark story lines. There are many love stories out there. Bonus chapter was really good too. Sometimes the bonus chapters are only a few minutes long, this one was worth finishing the game for. I liked all the HOG and some of the puzzles were unique. The only thing I wish the game had was an interactive map, instead of going into the elevator each time. I found that to be a bit over done. That is my one negative comment! Loved it! Want another like it right now!

This is a great game, creepy and sinister, pretty good puzzles, good hidden object scenes. Well worth the CE price. Hope the developers make a sequel soon! A+

.............there are only a handful of developers that consistantly turn out great HOG/Adventure games, and Vogat is in the top 3!! When it says Vogat, I buy it. F.A.C.E.S is another charmer with its spooky deserted hospital atmosphere Artwork/graphics are very good while you go from floor to floor and task to task [loved the realistic flies buzzing around in two of the scenes that I tired to brush off my screen.ha! ]. I found the story line linear, and only needed the SG a few times. Puzzles were medium to hard, and [thankfully], skipable. Loved the darling, pinchable dwarf lemur . My only complaint is looking for the same objects [when going back to] the HOG scenes. All in all, highly recommend.. +1/2..... ........ .......

Great game - thoroughly enjoyed it. Bonus game was great too. Hope to see lots more like this. Must be another Faces though as the story is not really the end.

There is nothing (unless I've missed it) which makes you interested in the girl at all. Kudos to the developers for taking on board wished for spooky games, but this one is simply not my cuppa.


Taking it all back. Read a review on another site and decided to give it another go. Absolutely brilliant game. Just about to play the bonus game now. One of the best CEs I've bought - and I don't buy many. Enjoy fellow fishies!!

OK game, but too many **** scenes for me. Puzzles were ok but not exciting.

This is another very high quality game from Vogat. And I usually love games from Vogat. But I must admit I'm getting tired of these depressing, dark games. I get enough of that stuff when I watch the news these days. I play games so I can escape - can someone please make an engaging, beautiful, magical game that I can escape into for once? That's what I loved most about Myst and Riven, which was my first entry into adventure games.

Oh, one more thing - thank you SO MUCH, devs, for not sparkling everything like journals, hint buttons, etc. You got it right!!!!

Fifteen minutes into the game. Intense. Dark. Nasty. Brilliant. This one isn't for the kiddies. More later.

Played the game - all of it - and loved it! It was nice and long, difficult, but not impossible, nor too simple either. Loved the graphics (ima sucker for shiny graphics) and loved the music too. I just wish there was an option for downloading the music in the bonus content, not just playing it. Other then that, not my first Vogat game and definitely not my last

I always have liked the games I played by VOGAT and was happy to see another
but...After three chapters, I deleted it! It was much to depressing and intense and yes, dark for me! I hope those of you ;who enjoy that sort of game enjoy playing but I could not wait to get rid of it. I am probably older than most of you by far and that may be part of the problem. I have had enough sadness in real life to pay for and play a game depicting such extreme sadness. I was able to play the puzzles in the first 3 chapters without any trouble. But I will look for brighter, happier games in the future. I have over 150 BF games and many are mysteries etc. I did like Dire Grove but I guess I have had enough. So thank you for letting me spout off, and please enjoy your games as much as I do mine. Isn't that what Big Fish is all about?

theoldbag, it isn't your age. I am probably younger than the majority here and I couldn't stand this game. I played for 15 minutes then deleted it. It seemed like the developers were heading in the direction of darker games, but this one just seemed to cross the line. Way to dark, weird, and depressing. Like you, I play these games to get away and enjoy myself, not to get a level of evil and just plain strangeness that my life doesn't have. I know the majority love this game and I think that is great for them. However, I won't be purchasing it even as a SE or a DD.

I thought the graphics were just so-so. The music depressing and the storyline simply stunk to me.

Too short and too expensive. Not worth the money.

Another rave here. This one is a CE worthy of the name with the best bonus game I've ever played, period. Wonderful imagery. Excellent writing. Gentle, haunting music. Great stuff. Can't wait for the sequel.

I LOVED this game! Instead of cleaning my house, I played and guilt free! I am so looking foward to a sequel!!! Great job. It was suitably interesting and spooky!
