It's a nice game, but it's also waaaay too short.

The setting is nice featuring a new and unique way to tell the story ... but the story ... well ... if you know what to do it lasts for maybe a fifteen minutes ... and that's if you're playing it slow ...

When clicking through you can easily finish this in three minutes!

Get only on a laaaaaarge discount to enjoy the unique feel, but don't expect to get much game out of it.

And with laaaarge discount I mean don't pay more than 0.10 cent or so ...

There are free flash games featuring longer lasting playability. If I hadn't got this out of a bundle I would feel ripped off.

The puzzles were lame. Most were extremely simple, though I couldn't figure out when there was supposed to be a number in "Gramophone".

The game began a story, showed me the village and the path to it, but then abruptly ended with a "thanks for playing episode 1". The entire game wasn't even a full intro, it felt more like a demo.

It's a nice looking game, but not particularly challenging. If you're lucky you'll get an hour of playtime out of it. Not worth $6.

The most ridiculous game i have ever played.It is a flash game and the puzzles are too easy.I didn't even try to beat the game.If i didn't get this for free i definitely wouldn't buy it.The price is too damn high.

This game has about seven puzzles, half of which are pretty easy. The other puzzles aren't hard, just annoying. Interesting visuals, but the game has a very low resolution so it's just a small box in the middle of my screen. It's also made in Flash. Took me 45 minutes to beat it. Definitely not worth the price.
