Hi BlamDev...

I loved the beta when I played it and am very happy to see it here on BF today. This is the kind of story I love playing. Great graphics, great gameplay = great fun.

The one thing I really didn't care for was having to search each scene with the magnifying glass for morphing objects. No... that's not what I call fun. Besides, that sort of thing disrupts the gameplay (for me). Otherwise, love what I have played so far.

Hi Blammies....
I am super enjoying the demo of Punished, and am getting ready to buy the game.
I want to thank you from my entire eyeballs for including a magnifying glass in with the game tools! I love it!

I have a question and a request though.
Question first....am I correct in assuming you were going for an Edward Hopper sort of feel to the art work?
You really succeeded if you did!

Second.....Please, if you can either do a patch or correct it in future games....
Don't use red lettering, especially on a yellowish, tan or slightly orange background....or even on a black background.
It is devilishly difficult to read, especially for those of limited sight or for the color blind.

Anyway....great game.....am loving the whole 1930-40's hard-boiled detective story feel of it.

Hi Valdy!

Thank you for your opinion!


Hi tookat!

About first question - we based our art style to our own vision of the game.

About second question - in our future games we won't use similar things.

Thank you for review and nice words!

ohai...I hope I did not insult you when suggesting the Hopper influence.
I used to teach various drawing and design classes, and I often told students to cull ideas from art history and other resources when designing a "Look".

We always like to learn art styles and want to find our own style.

Just wanted to say I'm enjoying the game so far and believe I will be purchasing the CE.

I appreciate that you were here listening to what we thought of the game. I really don't have much to add, but wanted to say thanks.

Am I correct in assuming this will be your last game for 2013?
This looks wonderful. I am a massive fan of murder mysteries. Please do more murder mystery games in the future. (such as European Mystery- I loved that one!)

All the best for 2014, Blam!

Hello, I have just started playing this game but I already love it! The graphics are beautiful. I appreciate the fact that we have the option to turn off sparkles, that's not the case with most nowadays. I just like the custom option period! I like the black bar comments and the morphing objects, and I love the storyline.
However, if you are looking for suggestions, it is always nice to have options other than the HO scene, like match 3 or something new with HO scene, not just looking for the items. But, like I said I just started the game. Maybe that's the case later and I haven't reached it yet. Otherwise, I really like the game, great job!

Great to see you in the forum Blam! It is magic for me to think our opinions matter to you.

I intend to enjoy this game thoroughly - it looks very appealing, and I love the feel of it.

VERY happy to see a new story too! I have a review in the review thread, if you'd care to read it.

Keep up the good work.

As you should!
and every game should have a style appropriate to the game, which I notice you do.

Hi Blamies!

I thought only yesterday, I want to play a "normal" crime story. Whit normal people, in a normal city. No mad enemies, no black fog, who takes the son, the fiance, the husband... And today: you are there with this amazing crime! (Are you mind-reader? :-)) Thank you so much!!! After 15 min. demo I bought the game.

Have a very nice day! Thanks again and best wishes from Hungary! Agnes

I am buying the game after writing this. I love the evidence board concept! I tried to look, did you guys also do Enigmatis:The Mists of Ravenwood game? That is one of my top three favorite games, and it shares that concept. If not sorry to bring it up! But, I do enjoy collecting the clues, it's not that hard to do. The game flows well, and like I said the storyline keeps you interested. I hate when the artwork is fuzzy, or too cartoon-ish, because for me it is hard to appreciate. There is none of that here. It is clear and beautiful, and allows you to appreciate the time that people took to create it. Great game, keep them coming! Have a great holiday season!

Hello and welcome once again Blam! Games,

Always a good thing seeing you in the forums. The game is downloading as I'm writing this so haven't started it yet but I'd like to ask you a question. Apparently the title is inspired from Greek mythology, right? Why not nine muses then instead of seven? I come from Greece you know so couldn't help but to wonder...

I'll return with my comments after I've finished the game.

Hello tammytheo!

Our title is inspired from not actually Greek mythology, but similar to it. Seven is a lucky number, so we think that this number will be good sign for our game

We wait for your review about full game.
