I haven't played a hidden object game in awhile...

...this one is REALLY, REALLY good. I freaking love religious imagery, and this has a lot of it. It's not a life changing religious eye-opening experience, but it's a very interesting story. Particularly when compared to the extremely shallow storylines with most hidden object/puzzle games, this one stands out. Underneath a religious outline is a heavy occult influence that actually makes use of symbols and ritual goods. This is cool!

The soundtrack...

Voice acting is..meh. That's to be expected with this sort of game, though. I'm surprised at the content here. The ambient music is really good, in all actuality. It doesn't sound too cheesy in comparison, again, with other hidden object games. It's definitely something you can mute after awhile, though. Worth a listen for a few minutes, however!

The Artwork

My opinion on this is biased, because I love old monastaries, churches, cathedrals, etc. That being said, I love the images used in this. I don't normally gush on artwork, and I guess this sort of thing has been used so much in games that it's not the most difficult to pull of. Still, though, they look nice.

Storyline

This actually has some writing! Good writing. You're investigating a murder, a religious murder. I don't know why I find that so cool.

Overall...

I rarely gush about hidden object/point and click titles unless they're really good. I believe I got this game in a bundle or via trade, which is likely, honestly. This is a hidden gem amongst the hundreds of laaaame hidden object games. I love it!

8/10 FOR THIS GENRE.

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.

This is a glorified hidden picture game with barely any plot and no significant logic puzzles worth mentioning. If you want something mindless and casual it may do the trick, but I regret the purchase.
