Really enjoyed this game, so worth waiting for. I'm pretty useless at adventure games, but managed this one without the walkthrough. So hope there will be a sequel!
I'd give it 12 out of 10 any day!

Wow! I was worried that it may be too difficult for me. I have a difficult time with Large Game Files. But, no so! What beautiful scenes. Voices are great. I believe I will be able to play this without going to the walkthrough so often that it takes the fun out of the game. I would rate it as medium. So I will begin again and relish every second. Take my time. This will be like a very good book. You never want it to end.
Thank you Big Fish. I give this game and many more

I have one very major complaint, but it isn't about the game; once I finished the demo, it immeadiately logged me in, added the game to my shopping cart, and sent me to checkout.

I may very well buy the game, but let ME make that decision, Big Fish!

Aside from that, an interesting concept, a bit too heavy on atmosphere. It reminds me on Azada with paintings instead of books, albeit with much better graphics.

I think this game is absolutely brilliant ! Not too easy and not too hard. Beautiful graphics. Great sound. A real step forward in "casual" gaming. Thanks Big Fish Studios - all your efforts were very worthwhile

I have enjoyed my time with this game quite a bit! Will most likely buy it when my next game credit rolls around. I have only one complaint- my "hour" of trial game only lasted 1/2 hour. I completed a puzzle and the game went to a cut-scene that looked like a trailer. It then dropped to desktop and brought up my browser to the "buy it" screen. Thinking that it might have been a glitch, I reloaded the game, clicked on the next puzzle and the sequence repeated. Now, I don't really mind a limited trial- I just wish it had been stated at the outset that this is not the standard full hour! I will admit it should have been obvious looking at the different download sizes but... Anyway- beautiful art, engaging story (so far) and enjoyable puzzles!

OK...this will be a FIRST for me! I am going to buy this game sight unseen based on the reviews written here as they have never steered me wrong before !

Jorunn,

When the games that have a smaller download for a trial are put up, they are set to go to a certain level and then stop. How long it takes a person to get through varies. This has been the 3rd game like this that I have seen.

I agree Bruce. Don't go telling me I have to buy the game. For first timers it could be intimidating. Had this been my first time to try a game, I'd immediately take this site out of my Bookmarks and said, "No thanks!"

One other (minor?) thing is that it takes so long to shut down, showing all the different scenes. Not that I couldn't walk away from the computer and do something else while that happens! Does that continue to happen every time you close the game?

Amazing.....This is truely another gem by Big Fish .... I just finished and I found the game remarkably brilliant. Thank you MargieB for the wonderful walkthrough.... which I needed once and could have kicked myself afterwards for not seeing it. I am so looking forward till the next one comes out.

I must be getting jaded as I thought it was a "good" game with terrific graphics, but I could stop and go do other things and come back to it whereas with RTR I think I sat at my computer the whole darn day and had to be pulled away.

Still really enjoyed Drawn and I guess I am just in a kind of funk today.

Please note:

Play a sample version FREE for one hour (81.59 MB )


This is not the standard trial wording. You get two chapters in your download or an hour, whichever is the shorter. {up to one hour may be a better wording for these special demos}
