OMG! The girl in the game NEVER SHUTS UP! It is so annoying. Everything you click on she has something to say about it. I would not get this game even for free. Terrible

it's not a bad little game, no brainer about what to do when you get a new task and at least it has a map lol I finished playing one of my older games this morning and a map would have been helpful in it as the hint was so obscure. but this game isn't bad, got a free game coupon think use to buy it later. the book (missing key between k and h, ournal was a nice touch)

A very old type game but the developer shows promise. Hope he, or she, keeps on trying. Not a buy for me.

1) Click on the "MENU" button and choose "Settings".
2) Click on the "Audio" button.
3) Click on the "Audio comments" checkbox to turn the sound of comments on or off.

If "Audio comments" checkbox is off, text of the comment will still appear on the top of the screen but without the sound of Alicia making the comment.


Hope this helps.

I quite like the game. It is a buy for me!

Happy Gaming,
BK

I think I lasted about ten minutes before I had to bail and turn her voice off. This seems like a pretty old-school style of game, it's been a long time since I've had to pick up a screwdriver or wrench four times to remove four screws/bolts. Nothing very new in the story but then again, not much is these days. I just wish I liked the main character a little more, I'm almost hoping she fails......almost. There is a map but I don't seem to be able to "jump" with it, so a lot of running around. The puzzles were slightly different but the instructions were a little vague. Still, I do have a PCC almost ready to expire, so maybe........I would like to see how this one plays out and maybe it won't be as predictable as it appears to be. I do like supporting a "new developer" and their next effort may be better.

Hello, I do not understand all the negative stuff. I recently bought Green moon and Green moon 2, You need to do a lot of thinking in these games. As I like to play games, and using my brains, in stead of looking for morphing things or what ever. This game does not so much negative stuff. It is a good and nice game. I allways play without sound.

so, I've played 30 minutes of the demo - disappointing I have to say - at least for me. It's classed as a "hidden object" game, however, so far all I've come across is puzzles, puzzles and more puzzles and huge amount of talking.

Alas, not for me. Have had no tech issues on my win 8.1 PC - but, just not a game for me.

Hope others enjoy it.

Started out to be an alright game but by the time I got to the tombs, I was frustrated and bored out of my mind !! Glad this was a freebee, I would have been really upset if I had wasted my money on it .

There's is too much chatter, but some helps you find things, some of it you can skip!
I found it interesting though! I too am going to get it w/ a punch code!

This is a great game for anyone who likes puzzles. There are several very challenging ones. The game itself is rather simple compared to most games but it is mostly puzzles and adventure. I find that far more interesting than hidden object hunts. The map does let you jump to any scene that you have already been at. You just highlight that scene and it shows up in the bottom right of the map and you click the arrow. So you can speed up play as you go back and forth. It was a nice change of pace.

How old is this game? If this is "new", which I doubt, the developer must be stuck in the 90's. I wish in the info section about games for purchase you'd include the year it was developed. This game is boring and old.

Based on completed game with no tech issues

I wasn't expecting much and was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this game. It's an indie game made on an indie budget and was first released in late 2016. This is not an old game. This is an indie game made by developers that don't have Mad Head cash. I am more than happy to always support indie developers and hope this team is able to make another game in the near future.

The storyline was on the dark side and interested me. There is lovely journal that profiles the people/events as well as the story and clues you encounter along the way.

BFG cataloged this game incorrectly. This is an adventure, puzzle game. There are not HOP scenes in the game. The challenge level was varied, with some very challenging adventure elements, combo items and a few of the puzzles. Most of the game was, I would say, intermediate level of challenge. For help, I would recommend the developer's website or YouTube if anyone needs more than the in-game hint system.

Another thing I really love about indie games, is the developers tend to make their game worlds much larger. The last level of this game had about 10 rooms in it! Unheard of these days with the big guys.

The game had a well developed story line, kept my interest, and had a good length for a SE. I heartily recommend this game to adventure gamers and puzzle fans.

Oh, and I didn't mind the lead's voice at all. It was a tiny bit startling at first then I got used to her and liked her. The devs have a setting where you turn the voice overs off if you choose so that shouldn't be an issue for anyone I don't think.
