In this exciting detective adventure game filled with twists and turns, by SFB Games, you will find yourself playing the role of Detective Grimoire. Your job is to take on the mysterious death of Remington, the owner of a swamp amusement park in the far reaches of a swamp. The odd thing is that the apparent killer is the infamous Boggy, a creature so unique that it hasn't been seen in 60 years, and yet came out of hiding to kill the man that created a park about the creature itself.
Graphically I loved the look of the game, the characters all had a very different look to them, and the different sections of the "park" definitely went with the vibe of what was going on in the scene. All the screens are static back drops, and some of them have characters that will appear somewhere in the foreground. There was just something about the character design that just draws a person in, I can't tell if it was the way that they were drawn, or if it is the use of colors, but whatever it is, it works for the game. I also really liked the HUD layout of the game, you definitely new where you were in the game, in terms of progress, as well as where you stood with the different characters that you would be interviewing as you try to track down the killer.
One of the biggest things that I have found makes or breaks the game is the voices and sounds of the game. This particular game nailed it. Along with the look of the characters I could feel the voices breath life into them. Each was very unique and each made me believe that those voices belonged to those characters. I also really appreciated the humorous dialogue that was thrown in from time to time to keep things a little lighter in the game.
The controls are really simple, this is another point and click game. So as long as you feel confident left clicking with a mouse, you'll do just fine.
Alright so lets get down to it, as I stated before you will be playing the role of Detective Grimoire. You have been asked to consult in this truly bizarre death which everyone is claiming was done by an almost mythical creature that has not been seen in 60 years. It is your job to interview everyone on the island and try to uncover all the truths, lies, and obstacles that get in your way. My only problem with the game was that the overall length wasn't all that long, but there was something about this game that I didn't really care. I enjoyed it for what it was, and that was a great story, with a great cast of characters, and surprises spread throughout. I also enjoy the interrogation mechanic that was in the game. There was always a chance that some new bit of information or perhaps an actual clue could get more information out of the different individuals spread out across this very unique theme park.
Now I'd like to go more into some of the twists and turns, but that would be a terrible thing to give away for anyone out there wanting to play the game, and I think most will want to play this game. So if you like point and click mysteries with colorful casts, and a very mysterious murder, this is the game for you. You can beat the game in under 2 hours, that's the only thing that I want to warn you about, but outside of that I think most will greatly enjoy the time they spend playing this game. This game gets an 8.8 out of 10.
