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 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.

The game is halloween themed old-school point & click adventure game. Main plot is that your friends have been trapped in a board game ( Jumanji ? ) and you have to find a way to save them. The game is just clicking various objects, solving tricky puzzles and playing hidden object minigames. This can be turnoff for someones but I personally recomend to try this game.

Shadows is a nice hidden object game. The search scenes contain have some items that require you to solve some very minor puzzles to get them, giving them a little extra flair. Throughout the game you also find other puzzles, including a sudoku-clone and various brain-teasers.

The graphics themselves are very nice and colourful for this type of game and the story is sufficently interesting. The game contain quite a few interesting backdrops and the cutscenes are nice if a little basic.

My only negative is the game offers quite a lot of help. The help-function for some of the puzzles don't tell you the purpose of the puzzle, it actually contains the solution. And the map will tell you where you have things you need to do. So you no longer have to backtrack to see if you missed things. One click on the map and you know where you have to be next.

All in all though, Shadows: Price for our sins is a solid hidden object game. If you like this kind of games, you'll like this game.

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.
