A couple of nasty puzzles in this one - if it sounds delicious you might be tempted to try this game already!

First off though - it's short. Sure, the same could probably be said of all hidden object games, depending on your skill, perception and how many H/O games you've already played, but this could probably be blazed through in two hours.

The visuals and settings are not bad. Objects aren't very hidden - they sort of stand out from the scenes a bit, in their shading and also a vague object outline. People are a bit wooden - moreso than other H/O games I've played. They have minimal or no animation to them, and even the voice-acting doesn't strike me as particularly good. The monks are often high-pitch, at least one sounds nasal, most sound like Americans. I believe going for a more traditional voice cast would have been a pro move as the voices do tend to detract from the immersion.

The story is ok. It could do with a little work - the first half of the game is repetitive at times, a lot of revisiting the same scenes, a lot of finding the same object just on a different day. Might as well take that bucket of water to bed at night, save yourself the trouble.

The art is a bit simple and bland, definitely worth a spruce up. More scenes would help with this.

Compared to other H/O games out there, this one let me down. While it does have achievements, these are currently not on Steam, only in-game. There are no steam cards either. But even if there were, I still think my final verdict would be the same. Get it heavily discounted or not at all, 4/10 for effort.

The scenery is interesting, but that's about all there is to this incredibly short point-and-click adventure game. The voice acting is sub-par, and the story flimsy. Most of the action consists in collecting random objects that everyone has carelessly strewn about the monestary. The logic puzzles are mostly achievable and mildly diverting, except for one mini-game near the end that consists of a bejeweled-style "battle" with a Knight Templar. It perhaps wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't a timed exercise. I nearly didn't finish the game on account of the task, but finally decided to skip it to press on to the uninspiring end.

So far this is a pretty well executed casual point and click game developed by a very small team compared for the price.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this game, it is a casual game and a small casual game gem for the price, or while waiting for the 2014 game of your choice. It will transport you in that world.

The game definitely has cinematic ambition for mood, plot, etc..
Settings are well thought and bring good mood.
Designs are well created.
Voice acting....while it is pretty good acting and it is the team's choice, I believe it is better to stick with original voice actor instead of trying to pull accents even though it is supposed to be in the alps, hopefully it does not dither to suspension of disbelief but it definitely can be confusing for very short time, so my definite choice would have been "speak English or Italian for a good majority of the acting and elder monk(s) or special key role(s) (for example) can use a mix.
Character animation are limited and that is a good thing in this case and game.

Total hours played does not say much about my experience. I stumble on this game on Steam while working on Photoshop, Maya, Mudbox, and Articydraft open at same time, although I repeat again this game may suffer of a little - here and there, it definitely is worth it overall and I had to voice up before I go back to work or it would grind me all day long ;-)

A rather short, but well made adventure. If you like games like Myst or The 11 Hour, this is something for you. It has some nice puzzles, minigames, dialogues, finding and combination of items and all of them are possible with logical thinking. Of course, it also has some strange puzzles where my first thought was "that was unnecessary complicated", but they were not too much weird, like using a rubberduck to build a trampoline. The price of that game is really surprising. The voice acting is well done, it has beautiful music which fits perfectly into the game (for the most time) and quite decent graphics, even though the world looks rather stiff sometimes and they could have animated a little bit more. But for just 5 euro you cant do anything wrong and i would say the game is even 10-15 euro worth.

I like casual point and click adventure games, and picked up this and Nightmares from the Deep on sale. I enjoyed the latter, but this? There is hardly anything here. No story, the object hunting is tiresome, ridiculously short, and the puzzles unoriginal. (Tower of Hanoi? Really, guys?)

Give it a wide pass even if on sale.
