“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.”
4/5 – Gamezebo

Acerca de este juego

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.

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 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.

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!

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 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, 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 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

Short version: 53%
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.

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.

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.

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.

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 out, there's a witch! etc. And to nail it down, there was several items with erroneous items...
On the whole I cannot recommend it, it is less than average.

So many bugs, I think I have come across a game breaking bug so I cannot proceed, Voice acting for this game is also very bad. 2/10 Not recommended. I wish I could at least finish it and be done with it, but I cannot progress when the game wont let me.

The game starts out kind of interesting, you are invited to a Halloween party and then all you friends go missing. Once you start searching for them however the game shifts away from that current day setting and you end up searching through generic old kitchens, farms and churches and solving issues of some old ghosts. The story itself is just some generic love story with black magic and stuff and never manages to properly tie together with the current day setting at the start of the game.

Minigames are overall ok, hidden object scenes are solid as well. The item use in the game however feels pretty arbitary and requires far to much backtracking, which is fast thanks to the minimap, but kind of destroys the flow of the game.

Overall it's not a terrible game, it just ended up being far to generic after the promising start. I also had some technical issues with the game displaying a black screen instead of a cutscenes, restarting the game fixed that, but I lost a cutscene or two that way.

This game is worth playing if you like a good story. It's basically a "detective game", where you have to solve many different puzzles, some of which you won't even know need solving. In about 4 hours I finished this game, without help or anything, and I can honestly say that I don't regret not one second; it's a great point and click game very good for a relaxing night. Unfortunately there's no replayability ( at least in my opinion) because the "challenges" will become obsolete once you know how to solve them.
Overall, it's a good game worth playing. 8.5/10
