Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeny Todd

[Post New]by TeresaRollen on Dec 19, 09 5:14 AM
The same people who created Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow will be releasing Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeny Todd on Christmas Day. Hope BF will get it. I loved Sleepy Hollow. Hope this one is as good.

ooh! The penny dreadful magazine/books were where the legend of sweeny todd was first created! (After the idea from Dickens in one of his books, I forget the name)
Sounds interesting!

I loved Sleepy Hollow, despite the horror aspects. I'm leery about the subject matter of Sweeney Todd, but if the items to be found are all in period and there aren't any gory scenes then it will be a keeper I'm sure.

While Sleepy Hollow was one of the best Old School style Hidden Object games ever produced I find the format no longer does it to me. I enjoyed the game a lot at the beginning but found it tedious by the end I'm afraid.

So I have fingers crossed that the same level of production has been brought to this new series but that more interactivity and more challenging puzzles have been added. Sweeney Todd is a favorite (blown away by a broadcast of the George Hearn/Angela Lansbury production on PBS years back) and I'd love to see it well translated.

Poodlebear, you managed to put into words what I was thinking about sleepy hollow! I liked the game, but then again, I didn't and I couldn't put my finger on it, I think your explanation here fits what I was thinking.

This new game coming out sounds intriguing.

I like this one too...but there is a limit as to how many games I am willing to pay a premium price for... bought three hogs from other sites this week already, debated on this one too, but will try and wait for it to come here. The problem is I can go through a hog in a few hours and want to play another one, but then when BF gets them, that is just one more game that I have already played and then I go searching for one that I haven't. Sure sets up a vicious cycle, lol. This is the worst part of being an elder night owl...only people out at night are the youngens, so I stay in and play hogs.

Oh, RATS! I wish I would have known that! I already bought it at the other place...oh well! I got to enjoy it and I had fun playing it so I don't regret that and if they get the CE then it will end up being the same price that I paid so it's not like I would've saved money, LOL! Even if they get the regular version, I tend to get the CE's over the regular version anyway, I like 'em! PLUS I got it in December so it's not like I would've gotten an extra punch on my punch card because I went wayyyyy over 6 in December...sigh! LOL!
