I'm waiting for mine to finish DL'ing... normally I'd wait until tomorrow, but this one is by Blue Tea Games (Enlightenus, Dark Parables) and those are some of my favorite games to play over and over... so I'm very excited to try this one! Thank goodness my kids don't have school tomorrow... LOL

New game manager from BF. Not sure if I like it better but it is different. Here are the facts as I have been able to assess.

Game is about a girl who is in quest of finding what happened to an opera house somewhere in Europe. For those of you who do not like ghost, ghoulies and creepy environments, this is NOT for you. However, if you do like the above, this is an absolutely fabulous game. I have already bought it and I haven't bought a CE in awhile. Worth the price.

Size: 485,000 mb. Large game.
Graphics: Clear and easy to find items Beautiful graphics.
HOGS: You need to find parts of items to combine in this puzzle.
Voice and Music. There is voice and the music isn't annoying for a change.
Puzzles: Haven't encountered any as yet, but you do have to use inventory.

Made by Blue Tea Games. Not familiar with them, but this seems like an excellent one. Grade: A+

Hi all,
Just a reminder the the trial for this game is actually a Sample Version and might be shorter than the expected hour if you reach the end of the sample in "quick time".
Cheers

Did anyone look at the screenshots of the game. Now instead of having to click on each one and then close it and click on the next one and close it. All 3 are on the same window and while you look at one the other two are under it. You don't have to close each one any more. I have been hoping they would do that. The screenshots of the game are beautiful, and if the game is anything like them, the graphics will be beautiful.

I've never written anything in the "review" threads, so I guess I should say this might have spoilers... just don't know for sure...

I played for 15 minutes, and have stopped to buy it. Graphics are very good, even with the deterioration of the theater, you can still see the beauty that it once was. It seems to be a mix (so far) of FROG scenes (fragmented hidden object) and a sort of atypical type of hidden object scenes (not junkpile, YAY!). It is kind of spooky, so for those who don't care for those sort of games you might be cautious. But I highly recommend at least trying the demo. Another excellent game by one of my favorite devs, Blue Tea Games (Enlightenus, Dark Parables)

Looks like Blue Tea has brewed us another winner! The screenshots are awesome, as is the video. (Did you notice, though, in the video, that one of the captions misspells "Nightingale" ("Nightengale")?

I've already got the "Sacra Terra" CE (from the developer's site), so I think I know where my 2 GC credits will be headed now--right into a of Blue Tea!

Funs story and great graphics, but I really just don't like FrOGs, so I'm passing on this one.

did anyone see a choice of difficulty or did I just miss it? I want this game so bad but I need a choice of difficulty to have a replay value especially on a CE. I cant go back in because I used all my time...

Oooohh, I love this game! But I have to wait til next payday Ah well, at least it is something to look forward too, lol.

Did anyone else have a giggle at the ballerina's name? Rose Tyler - I started looking for the Doctor and Micky Smith, lol. I also had to laugh when I got back to the young girl in distress, and she waved at me - too funny

Did Blue Tea also make the Briar Rose games? The game play is very very similar if they didn't - as are the music and morphing objects

Oh, it's a beauty! Both Dark Parable games are in my forever favorites, so this one is destined to head there too! I forgot myself and got kicked out of the demo and my download is taking forever now.

Curses ! I had one regular game to go to fill my 3rd pc, now I'm starting a 4th???
