Another great game from Cateia. Graphics are beautiful, nice and unobtrusive music, good voice acting, interesting story and the puzzles are perfect for me (might be a little too easy for some of you but I get frustrated with the harder ones.)

It's a shame this is a soft release and will be overlooked... I'm thinking of hitting today's game forum and letting everyone know to look for this.

Thanks ivanbral, you and your team did an outstanding job.

I am with snapnhiss, what a little gem this game is!

Beautiful graphics, the music is quite nice and so far the story has me interested.

I have only played most of the demo, and so far not toooo' HO heavy. As this is a biggie' for me and my game play!

Thanks Dev's, I think you have a winner

I hope that others do check it out, great SE that stands independent.

I finally finished this game....it still was a good stand alone SE, but does get a bit' heavier on HO's as it progresses. Not bad tho.

I just finished the demo and feel that this is a really good game. The storyline is not completely original, but the scenes and characters are not sugary pink and blue. Graphics are very good, and the voice overs are some of the best that I have heard.

This is a definite buy, and I hope that this being a soft release doesn't keep others from discovering this gem.

Elves, orcs, magick, evil wizards, etc. are not my thing, but having played almost all of the demo, I judge this to be a well thought out, well constructed game.

There are four levels of difficulty, and I played on the easiest. The jump map shows active locations depending on which level you choose. There are collectibles to find and other achievements to be had if you solve the puzzles.

Puzzles are the usual fare and seem to be on the easy side. The HOS were also very easy. I had no trouble finding any of the objects. There were more puzzles than HOS, but playing on the easiest level, the skip time was acceptable, although I continue to resent being punished for skipping puzzles by having to wait. It makes no sense to me.

Voiceovers were okay, and the music was mellow, soothing, and boring -- lots of strings -- but not always appropriate when danger was afoot, although so far as I got in the game, not much danger was afoot! Ha!

One thing I really appreciated was that hints are the directional type instead of the dreaded "nothing to do here, look elsewhere." They also sometimes show an outline of the tool to be used and where to use it.

This would probably be a good game for fishies just diving into the HOPA pond.

It won't be a buy for me. It's just not my cuppa. But at least there are no cute helper animals, talking piggy banks, or fantastical gadgets and gizmos. At least not so far.

Thanks, guys, for a lovely game to play - I am quite enjoying it and will be sorry when I'm finished. Graphics, voice overs and music are exceptional, as is everything else about it. Very enjoyable game

I am about a third of the way through...
I like it, but I really dislike the main woman's voice ;she sounds a bit stupid and rather disinterested in what she is saying.
(you can really tell that she is reading from her script, rather than being involved )...

Plus it would be nice not to have her repeating the same lines if you inadvertently click on something more than once(like the famous Selena's grave, for example)

...a shame as the story is quite strong and interesting and I remember their other games as being top notch! .

The game has some very qood qualities. It was a very long game - longer than some CEs (or so it seemed). The art was well done. The music was pretty standard - annoying after a while, but normally I turn the music way, way down while I play.

I feel like I would have enjoyed it more if not for a few things. First, I find it incredibly annoying when I go through a whole list of objects in the HOPs, only to have the game say "you found a useful item" - and it wasn't one of the items on the list! This happened several times in the last section of the game. Second, playing this particular game on my laptop without a wireless mouse was extremely difficult. I had to skip the first and last boss battles because I couldn't keep up with all the clicking. And nearly every new computer comes with a touchscreen now. This game did not work well AT ALL with the touchscreen during the mini-games (when it would have been the best time to use it). I would touch an object to move it one way, and it would go in the completely opposite direction. Or I would touch one item, and an item three or four places away would light up. Other new games from BFG work well with touchscreens, and I kind of expect it now. I don't want to have to haul extra peripherals around just to play a game.

Overall, I give the game a solid B for story and gameplay, and a C for technical issues.

A wonderful game, Cateia and Ivan! I knew from the first few minutes, I would buy! I loved the graphics. The more games I play, the more I appreciate music for the flow of the whole game and simply emersing myself into it. I also loved the voices and storyline. To have collectables and achievements just made me smile! I can go on, but you get the gest of my thoughts.

I am really looking forward to your next game.....maybe a sequel!!!!

Thank you, again!

Hi I found the game full of interesting scenes and colours were great also. As I do not usually post comments about these games, I will be brief - solving the puzzles was tedious with some of them taking so long, I skipped, and because of these old feeble fingers, I also skipped the fast ones. Normally I don't have a problem solving most puzzles, but found these ones a bit difficult and/or tedious. But nevertheless, the game overall was terrific. THANK YOU four stars from me.

This was a beautiful game for me until I had to skip a mini due to lack of instructions and not knowing what was to be expected!!! The ones where we do the battles by clicking and the number grid Grrrrrrrr

Storyline, graphics, music and most of the voice-overs were great and this game shows that a lot of time and thought went into it, BUT it is not likely that everyone knows everything about what to do in the mini's and I'm one of them and am frustrated and somewhat angry at myself that I gave up on a few of them

I would happily give this game 5 out of 5 but since the frustration of the mini's lack of instructions I'm giving it out of 5

Played on PC Win 7/64bit with no major problems, just a few lags but not bad
