I just have to ask this question--Why are there two threads for the exact same topic (today's CE--Spirits of Mystery...)? One started by bfgFlounder, one started by bfgImbrium--post Cs & Rs in the first one you see, then, Oops!--there's another one! Do I post in both? I'm confused.

I am certain that I saw a different game as the TGT at first! Was it just me? I just happened to come back to the forums and saw this game. I am DL now.

I think the first one is the 'early bird special', Once the C&R gets started the other one kinda gets lost in the shuffle.

(OK, Peglegann--I'll heed your advice and just slap my typing all over!)

Last week, it was "CE Friday"--now, we're back to "CE Thursday"! Good forecast, Mudrock!

I don't see this game as being dark and evil (e.g., Green Hills Sanitarium or Redrum2), but rather a fantasy set in the Middle Ages. Sure, there's a "wicked witch" involved, but there was in The Wizard of OZ, too!

Keeping MY fingers crossed , too, Bella--sometimes, ERS games are a little sluggish. Yep, a bit after 3:00 AM here, too--some 's, then do the demo and try to come back with more comments! (Copy and Paste here and there, eh?)

It is the Easter Egg for me... Waited for this game sooo long.

No eldee, it's not anything close to the Hospital, Redrum, or Anomalies (I didn't buy them either), but a stunning fairy tale, awesome and pleasant to play.

Bought already.

Thanks ERS, thanks BF!

They put the DD in the TGT spot and then they changed it to the way it's supposed to be.

elldee. copy and paste everywhere. put your left leg in, your left leg out etc!ROFL!
To the game. The options are surprisingly very basic, music, volume, custom cursor and full screen. The full screen told me that my resolution is wrong, so as I never chage it, I have the black bars either side. This never bothers me.
The story is very familiar, about King and Queen's demise but the baby is saved.
Please can someone tell me the name of the other game with a similar story?
Graphics are lovely, items are clear, I am playing on hard mode and have to do a lot of thinking! So it looks like a keeper.

I enjoyed the demo. It took me 49 minutes to play the expert mode. Fairly easy play. Any ideas on a walkthrough so I can evaluate the length?

Will comment more later.

After 10 mins of game play, this was a buy. The storyline, graphics, voiceovers are excellent. Hidden object scenes are easy, with the pictures being large and objects easy to spot.

The mini games are different, making for a better game play.

I played for about 15 minutes and rushed off to buy could not wait and so far everything about the game is worth 5 stars , 7 chapters plus bonus looks like a pretty good length as we know everyone plays at their own rate. Will let you know when I finish .....

Hi bella81762, thank you for the info. Have you any idea yet, how much game time there maybe? I know we all play at differing speeds

It's absolutely beautiful! Great graphics, sound, widescreen,voices,story. I love fairlytales and this one doesn't disappoint. But I never buy CE so I'll wait for the SE version. But I can't wait, I'm so looking forward to this one. Wounderful!

I'd rate this: FINE SWINE

FINE SWINE:
Great game with the best graphics and story. Bells and whistles, best, greatest, I love it.

You may be thinking of the first
Awakenings - The Dreamless Castle
it has a similar storyline, and also has beautiful graphics, music etc., and a good storyline despite the fairy.

I've only just downloaded and yet to play, so don't know about this one.
