I will let someone else post the reviews, I am too lazy, and just want to enjoy playing.
I never heard of this developer before but so far, except for the map which does not distinguish between where to go next or soon, and all other points to which you will be able to go, I am liking this game very much.

I wasn't too sure about this one either, but I had to laugh in the beginning where we see the citizens of the CITY of Smalltown (lol) dressed in the style of the 19th century, complete with top hats and cravats for the men, and bustles for the ladies, and then, what do we see speeding along the road? A car from the 30s or 40s! Huh?

I really do wish the developers of these games would stick to just one era for clothes and paraphernalia, etc., sigh. It would make the games even more enjoyable, imho.

In spite of all that, the game is quite enjoyable so far, and I am probably going to purchase it - just not sure when

After playing 50 minutes of the demo, I bought it. Can't resist a sale, and it's a fun game. I do think the map is a joke, though. What's the point if it doesn't even tell you the name of the area, or if you need to go there next. Anyway, it's a good game for a cold Saturday afternoon.

Tiger pointed out that we should just ignore any points that are still under clouds...
but I am mostly using to go back to areas in the beginning to check for new HOPS there....so, it isn't a total waste....
but, Devs, I do hope you see some of the comment threads so you can either patch the map, or design the next one, much, much better.....because otherwise, it is a good effort.

The map actually becomes much clearer as you progress and is almost as pretty as the one we had in Living Mountain on Thursday, with cut-away scenes showing furnishings etc inside.

An available location is no longer 'clouded' but has a bright blue outline. Your Hint will tell you exactly where to go and what you need to do next.

I do agree, though, that a sea of yellow exclamation marks all over the place, when you first start, is a bit much.

oh man....that bar glass game in the Baron's house was fun.
Glad to see that what I learned umpteen and bazillion years ago as a bartender still is good!

I'll take a tequila if you please.....
oh, maybe not....if I have to match scores with Tiger, maybe I had better not drink.

HO HEAVY for those that are HO lovers....adventure is thrown in there, but only after you do yet another HO! They are all the standard menu type HO's, some are quite cluttered.
Have to say, the story is not half bad........
