"Jane Jensen's return to adventure games doesn't quite fit in Gabriel Knight's shoes, but it is a charming tale of magic tricks and mystery."

Despre acest joc

After a tragic accident, neurobiologist Dr. David Styles has become a recluse, rarely leaving his home, the Dread Hill House. One day, Samantha Everett, a street magician, appears at Dr. Style's doorstep just as he is seeking a new assistant.

Samantha's first task is to find six people to form “The Lamb's Club” of human guinea pigs for Dr. Style's tests at Oxford University. The experiment starts off innocently enough, but then a chain of inexplicable incidents begin to occur, one after another.

Are these experiments as innocent as they appear? What is the true aim of Dr. Styles' research? What secrets are waiting to cross over from the other side?

A solid adventure with quite an interesting protagonist. Fans of Jane Jensen's earlier games (Gabriel Knight, i.e.) should take a look. I enjoyed playing it, although I've been highly annoyed by the final part of the game. It felt like a dumb treadmill, with puzzles being pretty much unrelated to the rest of the game /narrativ. The game wouldn't have needed that artifical time stretcher, quite the contrary.

If you're searching for a decent, albeit somewhat old fashioned adventure, go get it. Just don't expect to be blown away by cinematics or eye candy effects.

A great point and click adventure game that really reminded me of the feeling I had when playing Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within.
I really got invested in the story and its characters, Eventhough they are a bit stereotypical, each of them has a strong personality and are quite likeable.
Wanting to unveil the game's mistery made me play hours on end without losing patience or feeling the need to go check walktroughs even when things got a bit more difficult.
The fact that you get to play two characters during the game is also a nice change of perspective and freshens things up a bit.

Now where do I begin this review... I personally very much like this game.

Pros:
- Interesting character development
- Engaging story
- Good voice acting
- Gorgeous ambient soundtrack
- Beautiful environment models
- Interesting but not so hard puzzle

Cons:
- Puzzles and storyline are not so related to each other. You have to go one place to another, back and forth to find a small piece of cutscenes or dialogs. Since this game is slow paced, most of the time you just walk, walk and walk.

Fans of adventure games please be sure to grab this game.

Pros:
* Sounds (music, ambient, voice acting)
* Story (as far as I could bear to go, because of the "Cons")

Cons:
* Terribly slow, overcomplicated gameplay makes for a bothersome experience.
* Endless "pick *that* up from inventory first, or that chain of events won't trigger"
* Total lack of optimization, meaning that even if you have a state-of-the-art gaming PC, it still feels like 5- FPS
* 1998 graphics, even with all settings maxed out.

Conclusion:
It had potential, but it seems to me that whoever took charge of the software part of it, had no idea what they were doing.

Makes me wonder if this was some abandoned project from long ago, and that was taken over by some other game developer, who in turn just dusted it off and released it out.

I say get the cards, uninstall and be done with it.

Terrible performance issues on my machine (GFX690, 64GB RAM, 3960X -> 6C, 3.6GHz). Restart does not help. Changing configs to single GPU, rendering strategies, game settings to lowest, etc. does nothing. 3-5 fps all the time.

I strongly disrecommend this game, because you can encounter the same issue which makes it unplayable.
