I truly thought this might be a good game. Storyline sounded great and graphics looked good. Then I hit the first hidden object scene. Now mind you, sister has disappeared and couple is going to investigate. There is a hint of ritual involvement, but no solid evidence. So what do we find that might give us a clue? No less than a coin yarn, arrow, bread, letter A, tweezers, deer, soccer ball, heart frame, dice and a feather........ Just the evidence I need to start investigating a crime. Total junk pile. I am really getting tired of HdOs that just add lists of stuff that have nothing to do with the story. I am sorry but I am deleting. Probably could have been a good game. However, I do not need a piece of bread or an arrow to solve a crime.........

I like it. You have to look for things all around the scene and that's great. Story line so-so. ****'s clear.

In each **** scene, I found an item to use to forward my investigation. Works for me.

Another Yogat game. Should be good. After I have played it, I will let you know. I personally like the game. So far, good graphics, good story. No voice, but that really doesn't matter to me especially for a SE. Hurrah! About time we got some good games! Have this week off so I am really looking forward to the great games which are coming out this week.

Not great so far. Not challenging enough; inventory items are obvious and closely placed to the objects they are used with. Also, the cursor irritates me. Deleting after 20 minutes of play.

Wondered why the name was so familiar, I beta tested this game about a month ago. If memory serves me correctly it's nice but a little too easy.

Down loading now.

I played for 30 minutes and I like it very much! I use a couponcode for the game.

Based on 30 minutes play.

You know how, sometimes, you start a game and you just know that it's a winner? Well this is just such a game for me. There is just the right level of creepiness for me (my spine tingled as that front door opened! ), it's a creepy theme but not physically a dark game. Objects are, admittedly, junk-piled but they are well hidden, size relevant and look like they're supposed to!

Yes, it's a missing sister, yes, it's a clinical setting, yes, it's a bit 'occulty' and no, I don't know how long it is. But y'know what? I reckon it's well done and for $7, it's a keeper for me!

A bit disappointing, this debs usually developed great games (Shades of Death, Gravely Silent and Reincarnations)

The story is just so simple, somebody disappears but they just add some Dark Ritual into the game, the graphics are good but I hate the HOG scenes. Sorry but No Buy for me.

Aren't hidden object scenes in most games full of things unnecessary to the storyline? Apart from FROG's, where you search for parts of the items you need, every one I've played only has one item you actually use in the story. It wouldn't be a hidden object game if there was only one object to find, it would be an adventure game.

Ditto, it's Vogat!

Thanks developers, thanks BF!

I was really looking forward to the game because the developer is Vogat, but somehow it hasn't grabbed me with that "I must finish this game" feeling. I don't yet care about the characters--even the FBI agent who [spoiler alert] disappears into the tunnel of fire with eyes blazing blue, let alone the sister whom I have only seen in visions. I'm not sure I really care about the character I'm playing.

The hidden object scenes are okay, but nothing special, and I haven't had any major problems with the adventure part of the game beyond the usual "what am I supposed to do here" moments. The world should seem weird, but it all feels just sort of mundane.

Maybe I'm just tired tonight, so I'll finish the demo tomorrow, but so far I have little inclination to purchase the game, though I certainly have the credits.
