“What makes Shadows: Price for our Sins worth playing—what it does best—is its unusual item use, as well as its often surprising interactivity.”

Относно тази игра

Are you ready to party? A chilling night of reckoning is unleashed upon guests bold enough to party on Halloween at an abandoned farm house.

As children, you and your friend, Samantha, would play at an old farm during your summer vacations. Years have passed, and Samantha has invited you to join her and a group of fellow students back at the farm for a Halloween party. Little does anyone know - but a demonic force will be crashing the event.

When the partygoers game spirals out of control, a portal to a world of darkness opens to imprison their youthful souls. They soon join company with the rest of the cursed souls collected by the lord of darkness. You alone are their sole hope of rescue.

A freakish fest filled with menacing mysticism awaits your arrival ... That’s of course, if you’re not too afraid to RSVP.

IT's an ok hidden object game. I enjoy trying to find things but when it's trying to tell me a story through scenes that only give me a black screen I just give up. I restarted the game and still get the same thing. It was fine for a bit but after a while I just got tired of it and decided to quit and delete the game.

I wish there was a 1-10 rating, cuz I guess I'd give this like a 6....I can recommend this game, due to the price (I got it in a bundle very inexpensively) and it has a fairly lengthy playtime for an HOG. However, just coming off of playing a few other HOGs, I didn't feel like the graphics were as good as some of the other options, it was more buggy, and the puzzles went from "Could be done by a 2 year old" to "WHAT EVEN". There were a few puzzles that the instructions were VERY misleading or just outright wrong, some of the hidden object scenes have mutiples of the hidden objects you are looking for, and there are some typos. The story is kind of dumb, but I'm mostly just annoyed with how abruptly it ended. I can't say I see myself replaying it, but I did kind of enjoy it. I didn't buy the bundle for this game specifically, so if you get it for cheap, especially as part of a bundle, its an enjoyable enough time killer.

It was a good story line and the hidden objests were good as were the puzzles. Bad issue was that I got a black screen during cutscene. I mean buy it but only if its on one heck of a sale, other than that don't waste your money.

For now, I'm not recommending "Shadows: Price for Our Sins Bonus Edition." There's a notice on the game's Library page dated from August 24th letting people know about problems with Windows 10, video drivers, and cutscenes. I'm trying to run it under Windows 10 with the lastest Nvidia drivers and after the first couple of cutscenes, ended up with the problem (just a blank, black screen during the cutscene). There doesn't seem to be a fix for this yet. Along with that, in the two cutscenes I was able to see, the voice volume was inaudible. I think the cutscene volume might be tied to the music volume slider in the options (since I had that turned off), but can't really check it any more. Also, on a game-related note, just after the start, I was totally stuck. It turns out I had to try to drive away from the area first. Of course, I'd never have thought of that, since I'm playing a game and actually want to BE there and figure out what's going on.

I'll update this when I try to run it again.

I appreciate the Halloween atmosphere in this point and click game, every scene seems to have a pumpkin or something spooky. Shame it's a bit dated and counterintuitive.

10 ghosts, 8 friends, 1 disgruntled girlfirend who plays at being a witch, and a Jumanji like game board all on Halloween night, as if this would not cause enough trouble even in real life, let alone on an acclaimed haunted farm.

Story: Dylan is invited to a Halloween party of friends by her girlfriend Samantha (with special interest falling on Parker, the unrequited love). While Dylan is taking a phone call from her concerned mother all her friends are sucked in the Jumanji-like game board. (I personally do not think Miss Disgruntled (Dylan's girlfriend, Samantha) actually realized the game board was haunted by the ghosts of a previous tragedy. The "haunted" gameboard simply recognized similiar natures, and history repeats.) Simple enough storyline.
NOTE: I really like the opening where the car headlights light up the pumpkin from behind before the car is seen and drives past.
NOTE 2 - Safety announcment: Please do not talk on your cell phone while driving even if it is your mom calling.

Of all the reviews I read, good and bad, after I played the game I only have this to say: This is an old school Hidden Object game. This is how they all used to be when actual storylines were first being introduced and being refined. The games centered on the Hidden Object scenes, with the occassional pick up of inventory items to be used later or to solve some puzzle. The games were not as strictly linear as they are now, but had a more "open world" feel with "bottle necks". The games were also not nearly as "hand-holding" as they are now. The gamer had to think and OMG guess about what had to done, plus click everywhere. Yes it was and is annoying and frustrating but that is partly what made the game challenging, out thinking the game/developers.

Being a fool for old school this was a really refreshing game for me to play. Very different puzzles and needing a completely different mind set compared to more recent and HD graphic "hand-holding" games of today. One of the complaints centered on the half-completed objects in the hidden object scenes. Well all I can say to that is you got what you clicked (Do remember this game was made before 3D was standard, so the objects were drawn in, not overlayed.)

The actual puzzles of this game include suduko, logic, slide, matching, "minesweeper" among many other types. This game includes a vast and usually unseen variety of puzzles compared to the color, sound, and match fare of today. So no crying about how hard the puzzles are, expand your repertorie.

If you want a challenging game and are bored with the standard fare of today, try yesteryear (in game time 2 years is like 2 centuries). This game overall is quite challenging. No penalties for hints which I had almost forgotten about being so used to today's games where there are penalties for hints, map use, and misclicks. Hints were standard fare in old school and the gamer was expected to use the hint button... a lot, as well as be click "happy". Guides and YouTube did not exist then like they do now.

Old school games did not have (or require) achievements, in-game or later the all important steam achievements. They especially did not require trading cards to even be considered playable. So if as a gamer one is looking for those things, this game has none of that. So welcome to the adult version of "Highlights" and enjoy what made the games of today what they are today.

Horror on All Hallows Eve!

Well! Cattiness goes a long way for some people - for others it's just an annoying matter of fact, that some people have the tendency to exactly emulate this behaviour patterns. And I am afraid, that is one of the real true horrors in life.

Especially certain age groups have this trouble, regardless of gender issues. This game has a surprising Halloween story that is telling such a type of story, and it does it in a very good way. The sound is atmospheric for a horror/nightmare HOG, the graphics are just fine (actually, you can play this game through without using a hint because the graphics are quite crisp and you'll be able to find anything when you just use your eyes). The riddles though are a bit... overused, but it has some things within the story that make this game a nice waste of time.

Pro:
  • Good graphics with clear HOS.
  • Atmospheric Sounds.
  • If you like the type of movies, where adolescend young people are the victim either in a slasher or a paranormal ghost story, you'll be loving the game.
  • It offers some of the more outlined backdrop stories.
Con:
  • Some Riddles are overused now.
  • Replayability as with most HOG's tends to zero.

Recommended

The game actually is fun if you like movies like Paranormal Activity, or Helloween, or... well Nightmare on Elm Street... But still don't expect too much - it is a HOG and Remains one. That said, the game is a bit too expensive at 9,99 € so take care to get it either on a sale, or by Voucher ... or bundled!

The game makes a great Hallows Eve Gift for one of your loved ones too, especially if they love playing such games.

In this game, you play as some teenager who constantly throws away sharp objects and hammers as you investigate the mysterious disappearance of your friends from a Halloween party hosted at the most haunted house in the universe, and whether or not your immensely bitter best friend with access to mysterious occult artifacts is somehow involved.

The hidden object scenes are serviceable. Most scenes use the 'one or two items are arbitrarily hidden behind another item' mechanic, which is kind of stupid, but at least your mouse highlights whenever you hover it over such an object. One big flaw is that the list of objects only displays about half the total for that scene, and you can't 'click ahead' and clear an object if it's not on the visible portion of the list.

The puzzles are definitely the game's weakest point. Many of them are unintuitive (the fish/bathtub one springs to mind) and perhaps because of this a lot of the puzzles include a complete solution under the '?' menu, which if you find yourself reaching for it I don't know why you wouldn't just click the Skip button altogether. I also have a specific beef with the sudoku puzzle late in the game; I wanted to try and puzzle it out on my own, but turned the game off to go to sleep. When I returned to the game the next day, none of my progress had been saved. (An earlier puzzle, one of those beams of light/mirror deals, saved the positions of its lanterns even after quitting and returning, so this was a particularly boneheaded move).

Sometimes the 'take item to a certain location' puzzles were a bit obtuse, but fortunately the map highlights any place you can interact with given whatever items you have in your inventory. There really are a lot of locations, and as a result hidden object scenes are rarely repeated.

The plot is typical bananas revolving around a cursed board game and a bunch of dead losers whining about how they were personally responsible for sending the whole estate to Hell, despite it being out of their hands thanks to a big ol' curse. The more interesting plot, ironically, is the teen drama involving one of the protagonist's friends going bonkers enough to send the whole class to Hell, but sadly that's hardly touched upon.

I wish Steam let you rate games as mediocre, but I suppose in the end I'd recommend this game. Definitely not at full price! I'd say hold out for at least 75%, or wait for it to pop up in a bundle again.

Oh, almost forgot: This game had an awesome cat, an awesome crow, and three awesome owls.

I thought this was a really good Hidden Object game. I had no problems at all throughout the entire game. The plot was great, the scenes were good, the games were great, the hidden objects were good, the dialogue was good, it lasted long enough, I enjoyed every minute of the 10 hours or so it took to get through it. I've read some other reviews that complained they had problems with finding the hidden objects and other things, so I wonder if they've played this type as much as I, as I found it fairly typical, if not better, of this genre. I thought the storyline was especially good. I think I'll quit reading reviews. They often cause me to not buy a game, yet when I do, 9 times out of 10 I disagree with their critiques. I guess haters got to hate.

Painfully average game. Boring story, confusing hidden-object scenes and nonsensical item usage. With so many better casual adventure games this one can be skipped without regrets.

Game bugged out and is unplayable. This occurs at the part where you get the bell from the geisha and then bring it to the clown. The bell disappears when you try to drag it on its hat. Hint button will not work, and the map shows that no single scene has anything for you to do...

I got this game as part of a bundle and since I've enjoyed similar time waster games in the past, figured I'd give it a shot. The hidden object scenes are less than user friendly, mostly because there's a lack of detail when you need it most. There seems to be a second storyline that wanders around until it gets lost and forgotten while you're busy making sure your cursor is in exactly the right spot.

I wouldn't buy this game at full price, but if you have a decently large screen and don't mind squinting, it's okay-ish for when you're waiting on laundry or something.

I mean, it was alright. I had a few bugs where I couldn't proceed without quitting and restarting the game. There weren't enough HOG puzzles. Those HOG puzzles that were there fit into the story pretty nicely. I liked the shadowy graphics of the cut scenes too. Not one of the best HOG hybrids, but not the worst either.

This is one of the more complex HOGs I've played, in that you interacted with several different characters.

Some of the "hidden" hidden objects in scenes were pretty much only findable if you clicked everywhere or used a hint. (Example: an item was hidden behind the top of a barrel, and there was no indication it was there; I don't think you even needed to use a crowbar or hammer or anything, so there were no clues to its location at all.)

It got to feel so long that, towards the end, I just stopped caring much about saving my friends and just wanted to be done with the game. That said, I did find it interesting until that point!

This is an occasion when I wish Steam had more options than "Yes" and "No" for recommendations. This isn't a bad game for it's low price point. I would never replay this though.

This hidden object game drew me in with it's Halloween-themed story. At first it starts as a basic haunted house story and then it turns into Jumanji junior in a sense. The entire plot revolves around your friends being trapped in a board game and the ghosts of the game's last victims haunting the farm. They send you on a bunch of fetch quests, so only a fraction of the game is about finding hidden objects. I managed to finish the game in around 6 hours, so that's not bad for the $4 or so I spent for this on sale, but I also lost interest about two-thirds of the way through. I stopped reading the diary pages, for example.

The fetch quests were grinding on me. Some of the objects in the hidden object scenes didn't look anything like I would ever imagine them to look like. Some of the puzzles didn't have clear directions and if you hit the "?" to get an explanation, it focused more on telling you how to beat it than explaining the objective. Some of the later puzzles are very generic like they ran out of ideas near the end. For example, two of the last puzzles are a Sudoku puzzle and a sliding tile puzzle.

There are some good animations that might look like a puppet show starring silhouettes, but the simple visual style had its charm. The voice acting over them is pretty bad. Early in the game, there are a few animations with higher production value. The graphics are nice for a hidden object game, though those animations are a bit hazy. Maybe they just didn't like the HD resolution.

Each location is interesting enough and works with the Halloween theme for the most part.

The developers made this game very easy to complete. Can't find a hidden object? Use a hint. Can't solve a puzzle? Skip it. Not sure where to go next? Just look at the map. It shows you. It'll be hard to get frustrated with the game when it provides you so many bypasses.

A spooktacular game of mystery and evil perfect for halloween. Those new to mystery games will find themselves hitting the hint button alot, though the game is friendly to new players since any puzzle can be skipped or the hint button can be hit if stuck. Cant get lost because there is a map highlighting where an object of importance is to continue the story.

The Hidden Object Puzzles can be very difficult, there are things that can be moved on screen in the puzzles, meaning you just need to click everything to see what moves if there is an item behind it since there is no cursor change. Due to the games age many objects are difficult to spot due to them being very small or the detail is so low they cant be clearly seen. During puzzles it may ask to find a heart, or a knife, but there will be tons of hearts or knives meaning finding some arbitrary one. Other times objects are just named wrong such as saying "darts" but there are none instead there is a dartboard you click instead.

There are not many full on Halloween games on steam so this is worth trick or treating it up.

This game starts off strong, but halfway it begins to fall apart with a somewhat generic storyline. The CGI cutscenes are terrible. They are blurry and the animation is a bit stiff. If looks like something out of the 1990s. Normally I wouldn't be so harsh on them but this game was released in 2013. Why it has very poor animated cut scenes is beyond me. The nto confuse me even further are these completely separate cutscenes that are done with flash animation rather than CGI. It looks like as if this game was done by 2 completely different developers. It just throws you off. The voice acting is dull and emotionless like they weren't even trying. The gameplay was your standard hidden object play through. Nothing fancy. The puzzles were great as least but some puzzles were either a little too easy and some were totally cryptic. Do I recommend this game, no. Not unless you are a die hard fan of hidden object games or if it's on sale. It's a 5/10 for me.

I can't recommend this game, not at all. Why?
There are good things - a few. Drawings/scenes are quite nice, and there are some intresting cutscene animations (videos that resemble to the story about Death in Harry Potter 7 ) , but after a certain point I just skipped them, as the game itself was too painful.
There is no voice acting to speak of.
There is little to no feedback about the interactive areas in Hidden Object Scenes (HOSs), this usually turns the game into a clickfest. Items hidden behind tiles of wall that looks the exact same as the other ones, but you need to find THAT one.
Quite a few items in HOSs are not even drawn correctly - only the visible half is drawn, so when it pops out because you found it you can eyeball a nice half watering can, for example.
Also, click detection is strange, usually you need painfully precise clicks to your actions be registered, especially while using items between HOSs.
The message window - info about your surroundings, about the story - if visible for a fixed, 5 secondish time. But wait! It's not visible for 5 second until your last click on an item - it's visible from the first! The timer doesn't get refreshed when you click on an item as long as the message window is up , so you quite often end up with flashing text that's only visible for 1-2 seconds.
And finally:
HOSs sometimes have invisible items. Once I had to find a peace sign and even the hint showed a blank place where the sign *supposed to be*.
And this is why I write this review now, instead of finishing the game. I think I'm at the Stables and need to find a floppy disk in the recect Hidden Object Scene, but EVEN THE HINT COULDN'T FIND IT.
Never, ever buy this game. I've played with bad-ish HOGs like Theatre of the Absurd - but I enjoyed it all along. On the other hand in the case of Shadows: Price for Our Sins I only struggled, because of how bad and frustrating the game is at almost every point.

I can't, in good conscience, recommend this game. While the puzzles and hidden object parts of the game work just fine - the story is incredibly lacking. Which is saying something considering that most hidden object games have very weak stories to begin with.

The premise starts out okay. You're going to a friends party. This friend just inherited an old mansion. Starts out okay. It's after you find your friends that the story starts to fall apart. You don't really know what's happening because you step outside to take a call from your mom, but your friends decide to play a jumanji-esque board game which ends up trapping their souls. Standard stuff. But it's the 'why' they are affected by all of this, is what causes confusion.

I loosely think I understand the whole plot, but it's completely dreadful and definitely not worth the price. If you insist on getting the game, please save your money and buy it on sale or in a bundle.

I actually enjoyed this one. I actually cared about the story for once in one of these things. While the story wasn't the best it was still interesting and had a decent catch and conclusion. I enjoyed the silhouette cut scenes even though all the cut scenes in this game had terrible resolution. The puzzles were decent. The difficulty went up and down a lot; some puzzes I found just plain difficult, others I found the instructions baffling, and others were very simple. The Hidden Object Game parts of the game were interesting. I liked and disliked that for some of the items you had to do some other actions first. I liked it when the actions made sense like taking other items, putting them together to make the whole item. That was cool. But I did not like it when it was an arbitrary "click on this RANDOM item to get it to move so you can see the item you need hidden BEHIND it!" Why the hell would I ever have thought "oh yes, that thimble is DEFINITELY behind that hat!" The item using puzzles were decent though sometimes the reason you needed an item was pretty stupid. Like the part where your character wouldn't put her hand in a fountain because it's dirty? Hello? People's lives are at stake and you're worried about a bit of algae on your hands? Please.

Overall, a decent Hidden Object, Point and Click game.

If you like ghost stories, then this mediocre game should worth a few bucks for you, especially if it is on sale. It’s far from being the worst hidden object title on Steam, but even further of being the best.

Long version:
Shadows: Price of Our Sins had a really sound idea behind it: a hidden object puzzle game featuring a ghost story about witchcraft, love, betrayal and tragedy. It’s the execution that suffers.

The game has no voiceover after the intro, so everything is told in large– and frankly, very boring– text dumps. Also, the main plot seen at the beginning pretty much disappears, and never gets a proper resolution: after solving the final puzzle, it just… stops.
The puzzles range from bad to above average. They are also repetitive, with an uncomforting emphasis on colour puzzles. Despite this it is recommended to play it on an easier difficulty, since they follow little logic: key items just turn up abruptly in the most unexpected places.
The graphic style fits well to the atmosphere, but it is also quite dated, which really shows in the meticulous pixel hunting of the hidden object scenes.

I really enjoyed this game and would definitely recommend it, the only problem is that I don't think I could play it again for quite a while as I know the story too well

Horror on All Hallows Eve!

Well! Cattiness goes a long way for some people - for others it's just an annoying matter of fact, that some people have the tendency to exactly emulate this behaviour patterns. And I am afraid, that is one of the real true horrors in life.

Especially certain age groups have this trouble, regardless of gender issues. This game has a surprising Halloween story that is telling such a type of story, and it does it in a very good way. The sound is atmospheric for a horror/nightmare HOG, the graphics are just fine (actually, you can play this game through without using a hint because the graphics are quite crisp and you'll be able to find anything when you just use your eyes). The riddles though are a bit... overused, but it has some things within the story that make this game a nice waste of time.

Pro:
  • Good graphics with clear HOS.
  • Atmospheric Sounds.
  • If you like the type of movies, where adolescend young people are the victim either in a slasher or a paranormal ghost story, you'll be loving the game.
  • It offers some of the more outlined backdrop stories.
Con:
  • Some Riddles are overused now.
  • Replayability as with most HOG's tends to zero.

Recommended

The game actually is fun if you like movies like Paranormal Activity, or Helloween, or... well Nightmare on Elm Street... But still don't expect too much - it is a HOG and Remains one. That said, the game is a bit too expensive at 9,99 € so take care to get it either on a sale, or by Voucher ... or bundled!

The game makes a great Hallows Eve Gift for one of your loved ones too, especially if they love playing such games.

In this game, you play as some teenager who constantly throws away sharp objects and hammers as you investigate the mysterious disappearance of your friends from a Halloween party hosted at the most haunted house in the universe, and whether or not your immensely bitter best friend with access to mysterious occult artifacts is somehow involved.

The hidden object scenes are serviceable. Most scenes use the 'one or two items are arbitrarily hidden behind another item' mechanic, which is kind of stupid, but at least your mouse highlights whenever you hover it over such an object. One big flaw is that the list of objects only displays about half the total for that scene, and you can't 'click ahead' and clear an object if it's not on the visible portion of the list.

The puzzles are definitely the game's weakest point. Many of them are unintuitive (the fish/bathtub one springs to mind) and perhaps because of this a lot of the puzzles include a complete solution under the '?' menu, which if you find yourself reaching for it I don't know why you wouldn't just click the Skip button altogether. I also have a specific beef with the sudoku puzzle late in the game; I wanted to try and puzzle it out on my own, but turned the game off to go to sleep. When I returned to the game the next day, none of my progress had been saved. (An earlier puzzle, one of those beams of light/mirror deals, saved the positions of its lanterns even after quitting and returning, so this was a particularly boneheaded move).

Sometimes the 'take item to a certain location' puzzles were a bit obtuse, but fortunately the map highlights any place you can interact with given whatever items you have in your inventory. There really are a lot of locations, and as a result hidden object scenes are rarely repeated.

The plot is typical bananas revolving around a cursed board game and a bunch of dead losers whining about how they were personally responsible for sending the whole estate to Hell, despite it being out of their hands thanks to a big ol' curse. The more interesting plot, ironically, is the teen drama involving one of the protagonist's friends going bonkers enough to send the whole class to Hell, but sadly that's hardly touched upon.

I wish Steam let you rate games as mediocre, but I suppose in the end I'd recommend this game. Definitely not at full price! I'd say hold out for at least 75%, or wait for it to pop up in a bundle again.

Oh, almost forgot: This game had an awesome cat, an awesome crow, and three awesome owls.

This is one of the more complex HOGs I've played, in that you interacted with several different characters.

Some of the "hidden" hidden objects in scenes were pretty much only findable if you clicked everywhere or used a hint. (Example: an item was hidden behind the top of a barrel, and there was no indication it was there; I don't think you even needed to use a crowbar or hammer or anything, so there were no clues to its location at all.)

It got to feel so long that, towards the end, I just stopped caring much about saving my friends and just wanted to be done with the game. That said, I did find it interesting until that point!

Until such a time as I play a worse hidden object game, I will place this as my number one worst so far. Crappy story, a few glitches, bad voice acting, poorly explained puzzles, poor quality video in the cutscenes, harmful stereotypes, cliched story.. even the hidden object screens themselves seemed sloppy. I can't really put it into words.

I completed this out of sheer hope that the story would eventually get better. It did not.

The only thing I liked about this game was the fact that the map was separate from the journal. So you know, there's some glitter on a turd.

For now, I'm not recommending "Shadows: Price for Our Sins Bonus Edition." There's a notice on the game's Library page dated from August 24th letting people know about problems with Windows 10, video drivers, and cutscenes. I'm trying to run it under Windows 10 with the lastest Nvidia drivers and after the first couple of cutscenes, ended up with the problem (just a blank, black screen during the cutscene). There doesn't seem to be a fix for this yet. Along with that, in the two cutscenes I was able to see, the voice volume was inaudible. I think the cutscene volume might be tied to the music volume slider in the options (since I had that turned off), but can't really check it any more. Also, on a game-related note, just after the start, I was totally stuck. It turns out I had to try to drive away from the area first. Of course, I'd never have thought of that, since I'm playing a game and actually want to BE there and figure out what's going on.

I'll update this when I try to run it again.

The first half of the game is really nice, the second half feels uninspired and bland; it's like if each half had been done by different studios. The HO scenes are very cluttered but beautiful with some special moves quite original. The mini games are very bad, with bad explanation and a hint option that either directly shows the solution or has erroneous text; they're either too easy or totally obscure. Music is awfully dull. Story is the usual cheesy cliché: X loves Y that loves Z blablabla and ooooh! Look behind you! A witch! etc. And to nail it down, there was several items with erroneous names...
On the whole I cannot recommend it, it is less than average.

A pretty good hidden object game; get it if you like that sort of thing. It's got all the earmarks: serviceable story, logic-free puzzles (who hides the handle to their cabinets? Why do I need a hammer for one hammering and a mallet for another), and lots of running back and forth. If you like this sort of game, you know what I'm talking about and are prepared for it.

Also, make sure to use the map - it shows where you can perform actions and you can teleport straight there. I didn't realize how convenient that was until I wasted a lot of time backtracking.

I thought this was a really good Hidden Object game. I had no problems at all throughout the entire game. The plot was great, the scenes were good, the games were great, the hidden objects were good, the dialogue was good, it lasted long enough, I enjoyed every minute of the 10 hours or so it took to get through it. I've read some other reviews that complained they had problems with finding the hidden objects and other things, so I wonder if they've played this type as much as I, as I found it fairly typical, if not better, of this genre. I thought the storyline was especially good. I think I'll quit reading reviews. They often cause me to not buy a game, yet when I do, 9 times out of 10 I disagree with their critiques. I guess haters got to hate.

Do I reccomend this game for Hidden Object Game fans? I definitely do! The story is engaging and definitely unique, the voice acting (what little there is) decent, and despite its flaws and rough spots, I had a very fun time playing this.

Overall it's a very good game, it just could have used a little more polish before being put up for sale. In particular someone going over the HOGs and making sure there wasn't duplicate items (i'm serious, it is very frustrating for 'star' to be on the list and finding THREE items that match that) and otherwise tightening up the writing.

this is an horror themed point & click game.
this game has a pretty cool story with twist & turns and this is kinda like what we would have seen in the early 90's of pc gaming.
i love the art of this game is light harted its hand drawn and it looks amazing.
the voice acting could use work big time lol its so bad its good lol.
and there are cut sences and they need a bit of work but they work for what they are.
if you are looking for a point & click game to play then this game might be what you wan to get its a good point & click game.
my review score is
95 / 100
yes the voice acting and cut sences need work big time but that is not what makes a point & click game an point & click game.
so as an point & click game this game is amazing for what it is check it out.
