i have made a good and full of praise comment and i am here to tell how frustated i am ,now:at the end of the game ,i leave to keep it for next day;and when i want to start again ....bad news!i have all screens very well untill the "continue" one and then,when cilcking on it,the game crash and go back to windows and all i have is the "play again" screen from BF!we are very much people having this trubble,and no updating is in case,for i did the whole game until last level!i posted to BF,but these last days it is the second game i can't play for technical issues:masquerade mysteries won't work at all before i buy it,but this one,i have bought it,and it is very unpleasant to not be able to finish it!very angry,this time!

After reading some reviews, I am clearly in the minority because I will not buy after the demo. It's a good game, great graphics, BUT I had to skip many of the puzzles because of a lack of direction. The ones I figured out I enjoyed, but even the hint button does not consistently tell you how to play. How about a walk thru for dummies!!

It is good game but things are real hard to find A marble for god sake had me stuck for 15 minutes and had to leave game on the trail period. The hints are all right but a marble.

I agree with the majority of players. The graphics, the skill level, and the challanges is the kind of game I am looking for. Problem: The plot is not to my liking. Why can't we have this quality of game without going into the occult. Playing this bothers my conscience and I feel we are getting too much of the macabre in our games. I love adventure, mystery, and challange, but can't we do this without delving into so much evil?

Very good hidden object and puzzle game. I couldn't even get through the demo before I bought it. Keep more games like this coming.

I used my game credit on this and LOVED it!!!! For me, it was perfect. The graphics were gorgeous. And the voices!!!! I really liked the voices in this one. I hope there will be more like this one.

Okay, finished making the first potion and got hooked so I bought it. So much for my "break" from buying games. This Granny likes to keep the brain sharp too

Wait 'till you have to look for a single pearl! That's when I use a hint.

I can sum up my opinion of this game using just one word: WOW.

I love, love, LOVE this game!!

Everything about it is just awesome. For starters, the storyline is really and truly original. I'd had just about enough of finding clues to solve yet another not-so-engaging "mystery." And this game is the perfect antidote! For once I haven't skipped through a single scene or line of dialogue, because I actually WANT to follow the story! And yes, the actors' voices are just right. The accents are perfect, they fit the characters, and the acting itself made me actually stop and listen to the whole thing rather than hitting Skip as I normally do (since I read faster than the actors' speech). The graphics are beautiful, and the developers have actually managed to create a gloomy, creepy atmosphere WITHOUT making the objects impossible to find! (Quite an achievement, apparently, based on many other HOGs I've played!) As another user pointed out in their review, you do indeed return to certain areas several times, but this in no way detracts from your enjoyment. Each time you're looking for different items and for different reasons. The spells are perfectly integrated into the storyline. You go back and forth to various locations finding pieces needed for each spell, and each area is just challenging enough to make it fun and engaging, but not so challenging that I got frustrated. The hints charge just quickly enough; not so fast that you end up using them as a crutch, but not so slow that you get annoyed. And other than in the hidden object scenes where one item is revealed per hint, the hints still make you do most of the work; they give you suggestions but don't spell everything out word for word. You actually have to use your brain!

I bought this game without even doing the hour trial first, based on the glowing reviews, and I have not regretted that decision for even one second. I'm not even finished yet, I still have a couple of spells to go, but I just HAD to stop and post my review.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! for this wonderful game!!!!

Another word of praise from me, this is a great game. Lovely graphics, story and acting and most of all challenging gameplay. Thanks BigFish!

Well, damiansmom, a big, big welcome to the pond.

I just finished this game and came back to give my final thoughts and there
you were. You said everything I wanted to say and did it so much better.
I couldn't agree with you more.

There have got to be more games in this series, I hope, I hope, I hope.

Please, please, do more reviews and come back and visit often.

Joyce

I demo it-suprise my hour was up & not even close to finishing first portion yet. Definately a buy.
Love the graphics, the music was good, but then turn off sound so I can listen to my shows I miss working all week--about 3.5-4 hours for me--about a good 5ish for DH, who even stopped playing Syberia 2 to check this one out (that's a small miracle btw)
I give it 5 of 5

I played the demo-really liked it. Not sure if it's a buy, I'm selfish with the game credits, but did enjoy it and so will you!

I have never posted anything to any of the forums before but just had to say this is one fantastic game!! It is superb in every way. I am hoping there will be more Deadtime Stories in the future.

Same here. Everything about this game was spot on. Hope for more like this. Even tho I try to restrict myself, it is hard when these type of games are available. Right on Big Fish!
