Hello everyone! I played a beta of this game and for all of you who have been wanting a game with a change of pace, this may be the one you have been waiting for. I liked the beta and found some creative and clever game play here. I am away to play and look forward to the BFGamer's comments.

Wow, this game has a lot going for it. Choice of level of difficulty, harder mode has no sparklies. Can also choose if you want interactive help to get you started. Great graphics and voice overs and a big favourite with me - cut scenes, even better, they can be replayed. You can check what tasks there are to do, you have a map and a diary.... Wondering if this was planned to be a Delux Edition game - there is a full strategy guide showing 11 chapters... maybe we are being spoiled as BF didn't carry through with DE releases.

Theme seems to be long lost daughter searching for her parents...I am impressed so far and going off to play some more.

Edited for spelling...

Wow, another great game. This is a buy for me. It's different and a lot of puzzles.
There is a map and SG.

Thanks devs en BF.

This is quite a gem. Superb graphics, voiceovers. good story, map, strategy guide, journal etc. Just about every bell and whistle you can put in a game. Have played CE's with far less than this game has to offer. I'm impressed. A must have here.

remembered to put my clock forward and woke up to find this marvellous game have just finished the demo and can't wait to play some more..a definite buy and well deserving of all the praise so far..thank-you BigFish may have lost out on a little sleep but this more than compensates I predict a surge of 'downloading' very soon ..hope everyone has a great day..

This game IMO is indeed Phenomenonal.
I knew within 8 mins. that I would get it.
I know that because the timer told me I had 52 mins. to play when I exited the game the first time to purchase it.
Having gotten myself in hand I played another 27 mins. before having to stop and get it.
The graphics, to me, are gorgeous and the gameplay is great.
The music, the sfx, the puzzles, everything.
Congratulations Devs on a job well done.
And thanks BFG for delivering with this one!
BK

Wow, it's been quite a while that I have been so impressed with a game from the word go. Definitely regular price for CE quality. Even the way the girls hair moves.
I'm not the greatest fan of HOS, but with this game I don't mind them.
It's just that spectacular.
We changed the time here in Holland and I just hate it . But this game put me in a 100% better mood . Many kudos for the developer and thank you BF for letting us enjoy it too.

BF have been spoiling us recently with one great game after another. Now, here is this wonderfully promising game this morning, with terrific graphics, good music and vos, and a whole different game play. The puzzles are unique and intriguing. It's not so much the story that grips, that's the usual, but rather the plot behind the story. Even the HOS are a departure from the norm. I really like them.

A SE with a strategy guide is, technically, supposed to be a DE, but it seems that concept has fallen by the way. Yet here we have the same format as a DE, still at the SE price. I still cannot understand why devs put in extra time and work for no extra profit. Must be missing something.

So, if the game continues on the same level it started and doesn't lose impetus, it will be a real winner. Here's hoping.

Hi gingergal, it's not a transporter map... shows where you are and active areas etc...

thanks for the info I know transporters map is very rare, was hoping though
But at least it's a helpful one, showing active areas.

With all the good reviews going to try it out now.

edit - It's a buy for me, it's a bit different which is good. Liked one of the puzzles (gate one) the hidden object scene wasn't junk scene and really good interaction in the one I encountered and no random click penalty in advanced mode - happy dance.
can't figure out the SG though as it kept opening up several pages ahead of where I was giving me spoilers, but I rarely use it so it doesn't matter.
But it's lovely to have it in a SG.

And whoever mentioned the hair I agree it was really well done.

I found it an intriguing game and how nice to have all the extras, but I can't stand playing with the wonky cursor. I feel as though I have no control over it at all. Perhaps I will uninstall and reinstall at a later time. I do like the artwork and the story and the background music, but not the cursor.

Anyone else have the player name already filled in when you started the game? Mine said "Monica Dipp."

Gmmace... I think everyone starts out with that user name. Monica Dipp is the redheaded girl in the game... that's her name.

Agreed. It's the one feature that I have a beef with too. Strange isn't it, how much trouble devs go to to create something this good, and then don't bother to tweak an important function like this one.

Oh! Lol - didn't even notice that! I tend to blow right past the dialogue without listening. So much for my keen powers of observation.
