The first time I've played this game was around the beginning of summer, looking for a decent HOG to spare the day for. As a HOG lover, I can most assuredly say that Artifex Mundi has always presented me the best examples of the genre, and Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is no exception.

The story is about an underwater city established to seek "Enlightenment", mysterious wraiths called as "legates" taking control over the city, a limited number of survivors forming a resistance against them, and our poor, frustrated main character who is only there to look for her missing husband. Yes, the plot practically screams the Call of Cthulhu meets Bioshock, but the game manages to handle a cliché combination to craft a refreshing setting quite well. As any other Artifex Mundi game, the curtain opens up to an elaborate chaos which could only be sustained by our puzzle solving and item collecting genius.

Story and environment, with well-made artwork as always, are interesting enough to keep you going until you complete the game, which can be said for a select few games in this genre. There is a common formula for crafting HOGs which never fails: pick a mystery, add a missing person or at least a high stake, stir the pot with some HOG scenes and offer a complimentary cheesy ending. In our case, it comes with Artifex Mundi caliber artwork. All checked, we are ready to go!

Hidden Object scenes are decent, puzzles are fairly simple and adventure elements are easy to track down with the aid of your map. What I'd like to take a note on, is that item usage and combinations actually makes sense too! Playing dominos as an alternative to Hidden Object scenes is creative and entertaining. Oh, and it is possible to finish the game without the aid of any kind of manual or walkthrough.

If you like the genre, or maybe the game is on sale, buy it already! It's Artifex Mundi. It basically cannot be bad. If you've played Bioshock, you'll be having a small voice in your head, whispering: "laaaaame", but you'll still play it out of curiosity. You are facing another beyond par HOG, you are welcome!

It's kind of lame that Artifex Mundi ripped of Bioshock so directly in the setting here, but otherwise another very good HOG from them.

Yet another utopian society gone awry, this time due to human curiosity. (Though Pandora was not the one who opened the box this time.)

Storyline: Marine explorer Robert stumbles upon an underwater city. Before being able to report his finding he is taken captive by a mysterious entity with glowing red eyes in a black robe. After not returning from his dive, his female companion sets out to find him. She follows his underwater trail to the underwater city of Eden. Once inside she discovers the ruins of a once magnificent underwater utopian metropolis build to seek harmony and peace. Her mission: Find Robert and along the way she discovers there are others still alive in this decaying city. Some are survivors, some are rebels, and some are possessed. Second mission: Escape. (Any more storyline would spoil the mystery and adventure.)

Reveiwers have blasted this game (circa 2012) for various things but the biggest complaint seems to be is it is a rip-off of Bioshock. I have never played Bioshock so for me it was fresh and I did not compare two entirely different types of games with entirely different storyline concepts. Besides anything written about any underwater utopia, if one wants to get technical, is a rip-off of Jules Verne's "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and "Mysterious Island" or even Dr. No (the movie) of the James Bond franchise originally authored by Ian Fleming.

Gameplay: Beyond the jump scares and the death count, (both of which should be expected due to what occurred in the storyline), the game plays in a sectional linear fashion with a find and use inventory that needs to be completed before being able to move into the next section/area. The storyline is revealed through discovery as the gamer explores the complex. Generally there is little backtracking but some items found in some areas can not be used until later in the game. (So if playing on expert mode remember where there are.) The Hidden Object scenes are scattered throughout and for the most part are only played once. There are several times where the same scene is played twice but generally only after the gamer has progressed the storyline. Certain Hidden Object scenes (generally a replay scene) and certain items only show up after the game progresses. If stuck in an area that means something has not been done yet.

There is a lot of point and click hunt, find and solve to this game. In my opinion this game leans toward point and click with Hidden Object finds as a secondary. Which oddly enough works well with the storyline. The same can be said for the puzzles, despite how random they seem. The puzzles overall are fairly easy to solve and the usual fare. However the puzzles work well for where they are, what needs to be done, and how they fit into the storyline. So overall the continuity remains pretty much in tact.

Final note: In Artifex Mundi tradition, the Hidden Object scenes can be played with an alternative game. In this case, it is dominoes. Added 12/12/2015: Here is a trick to getting the 1 minute time in the dominoes game: Play the Hidden Object scene as List find. Play until only one List find clue is left then switch to the dominoes game. Finish the dominoes game and walla achievement earned.

Overall, I liked the tight well-written storyline, which though a bit far-fetched is no better or worse then most "sci-fi horror" flicks, shows or books. Oh last thing, there is a rather awkward proposal of marriage at the end which I thought I should mention being such a rare occurence in any game and gives this game a very personal touch.

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is a beautiful tale about a diver set to save her lover from a terrible fate in the lost City of Eden, a town living under the waters. Helped by people hiding and having survived to the terrible years of dictatorial rulings under surnatural forces, she's the only one that can stop everything.

The game has a strong story. You're going from surprise to surprise and the landscapes are beautiful and scary too as you're dealing with a fallen city under evil forces. Yet, the puzzles and the hidden objects are just what you need for a casual game.

I speak from memory because it's long time since I've played but the only thing that annoyed me is Robert, the lover. The voice acting was weird. I don't know why though, because the rest is correctly done. The soundtrack is also good.

No, really, Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is a beautiful tale, like Artifex Mundi can do. Don't hesitate!

This Game is a lovely point and click game with amazing graphics and a lovely art style! The Story was also rather interesting. The Puzzles are challenging, but I had alot of fun to accomplish them and I was always looking forward to the next one!

This whole game reminded me a bit on the first Bio Shock game and had a similar atmosphere!

Although the animations and the fact that people never blink ever, was a bit odd and not very well made. The Voice Acting wasn't good but neither it was bad. I personally found it alright.

Due to the fact that this game only got 20 Achievements it shouldn't be hard to get a perfect game in it, as long as you are willing to put some effort with it.

I can recommend this game to all players with a good memory or which just want to play a nice calm point and click game with amazing graphics. But due to the fact that the main story is only 3 Hours Short I recommend grabbing this game in a Sale.
