Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is only my second encounter with a so-called "Hidden Object Game". It's a prime example of the quality that Artifex Mundi delivers in this particular genre of games, which can best be defined as a point-and-click adventure light with as an extra ingredient the Hidden Object-screens. Artifex Mundi delivered a really interesting game with this one, which is like an overtly hommage to Bioshock. The setting shows a lot of parallels to that of the famous and revolutionary shooter: just as in Bioshock, I found myself exploring an underwater city where an utopian society had crumbled into tyranny and civil war. Even the art déceau-style of the city is very similar in Abyss to that of Bioshock. It may be a bit too obvious for some, but it's so well done and the screens are so well-drawn and full of details, that for me it felt more a parallel reality, an alternative, to the world of Bioshock than like any sort of plagiate.

In all possible departments, Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden truly shines. Artifex Mundi invests a lot in putting a convincing story into their Hidden Object-games, and they certainly managed to do so in this game. They also managed to integrate the several hidden object-screens and the mostly cleverly designed puzzles very convincingly into the story. The adventuring-part of the game plays very smoothly and intuitively, helped by the minimal inventory. As far as the musical score and sound-effects are concerned: they do their job in conveying the sometimes scary atmosphere in the game. It would be too much to call this a horror-game, but there are some very rare scaring moments.

Being a collector's edition, there are quite some neat additions included, such as an extra chapter to the story and some downloadable screens. All in all, this is a very recommendable game. Hidden Object Games-lovers will certainly know that they safely can expect a high level of excellence from this company, but I'd surely recommend it as well to those gamers who haven't yet played this genre before. They may not be difficult or competitve, but certainly entertaining and addictive!

Overall score: 7.5/10

If you have played an artifex mundi game before, by this point you know what to expect; a beautiful blend of puzzle solving, object hunting and hidden object finding (or domino playing instead), all bundled in a gripping adventure, full of mysteries, that slowly unfolds before your very eyes. If not, grab your mouse and relax: the ride is thrilling and wonderful.
There is usually some curse or supernatural element involved in their games and Abyss (the hidden object game version of Bioshock) is no exception. As you travel in a ruined underground city that aspired to be a beacon of freedom and enlightenment, you face and have to overcome mysterious adversaries that look like demon-eyed Wraiths in order to free your beloved (and also save the few free people that were left, some tired bloke pushing his forties and about three kids).
It turns out that the cause for all this is Cthulhu, or rather a strange statue found deep inside a mining shaft at the bottom of the ocean, depicting a humanoid body with the head of an octopus. Sounds familiar? I hope so.
At this point I am sure that Artifex Mundi have a Cthulhu and Cthulhu-mythos obsession and I love them for it (Cthulhu statue in Abyss, fishmen in nightmares from the deep: siren's call and the Necronomicon in 9 clues:the secret of serpent creek).
The avatars in this installment have really stepped up their game, the faces are life-like which is mostly due to the vivacity of the eyes and that is a delight to watch - although I also enjoy their painterly ones in other games.
The shock value of corpses showing up everywhere is also thrilling and adds to the unsettling atmosphere of Abyss, making it just the right amount of creepy.

TL;DR: *Cthulhu possesses underwater city people and tries to expand his empire.
*Explosions!
*Giant octopi!
*Dinosaur skeletons!
*Corpses! Corpses everywhere!
*Save Cthulh---eeerrr the world!

Artifex Mundi probably make the best hidden object / point and click adventure games, no exception here. To say the setting is a rip-off of Bioshock is putting it lightly, and the storyline lacks any of the nuance of that game, but it's suitably atmospheric and the gameplay uses it well. As for the rest, it's a point and click adventure game interspersed with set-piece puzzles and hidden object challenges. The artwork is very good, the character animation is pretty dated, the puzzles are mostly fairly undemanding although there's the occasional headscratcher (usually due to missing a vital clue or scene somewhere, so you'll need to search the entire map at times), good music and - as usual with these games - truly dire voice acting. Still, there's something about these games that makes them a nice, relaxing diversion.

It's an ok point and click hidden object. Sort of a vaguely bioshock feel. Worth a few dollars max.

Gameplay was fun, nice mash-up of puzzlles along with the reason I got the game - hidden objects. I played throughit on casual in one sitting and plan on playing the higher diffculties soon.

Main downside (but not a deal-breaker) was the really bad voice acting and story in general. It's not really a drawback because you're not expecting a triple A story from a game like this but some moments just made me go "...what?"

Fun story, pretty visuals. Made me think of Bioshock for a bit. That said, I liked this less than 9clues for 3 reasons:
1) lot's of backtracking
2) no fast travel like in 9clues
3) maybe a bit too many 'hidden object puzzles'

If you happen to be a fan of hidden object games or point and click adventures then this is the game for you. A very creative game that does a very good job with it's limited budget.

Enjoyable Hidden Object game with a 'BioShock'esque story.

The minigames/puzzles vary in difficulty but most of them are pretty simple, the Hidden Objects parts are of average difficulty. There's a lot of backtracking in this game and sadly there is no fast-travel like in some other HO games. Overall it is a bit too easy to complete but still a fun game nonetheless.

Encountered no bugs or broken achievements.
A second run-through is required to get 100%.
One of which needs to be in expert mode.

7/10

Abyss: The wraiths of Eden is a point & click game. The story is quite intriguing and the game features unique puzzles besides the usual "find these items" puzzle. The game takes a while to beat (2-3h if it's your first time and you're not using any walkthroughs) so it'll keep you busy for a while. I recommend this if you love casual point & click games.

Besides the main story, it also has a bonus story which will take you roughly 1h to beat. If you're any achievement hunter like me, the achievements aren't hard to get but it'll require you to beat the game a second time (which is quite boring).

Abyss: The wraiths of Eden Completed primary story line but still have a few achievements.

This is the second one of these that I have played now and like the first one I really enjoyed it. If you would like to see my other review, please follow this link: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197979162305/recommended/284870/

The overall meta of this game is similar to the last one. It's a casual point and click adventure with find the items in a big pile mini games. Compared to the last one I felt that this one was slightly harder which is good but I still managed to finish it in less than 4 hours. I would again recommend that you play it on Expert mode because it is a very easy game really.
This one I enjoyed quite a bit more than the last one. I have no idea if this one is chronologically older than the first but the production values seem to be much higher this time. The characters have some wonderful 3d modeling and very nice animations.

I wonder if the main character is supposed to be the same? She uses the same voice actress at the very least. I wonder if it is, I think that if it is she must be one of the most unlucky person in the world! Unlike having the ungodly detective powers of the first, there is a bit more MacGyvering this time around. This feels a little more realistic and I do appreciate it.
The game had a couple of jump scares that got me so well done with that :) The last one didn't manage at all.

If I had to complain I would say the music got really repetative really quickly and I ended up turning it off after an hour or so and listened to my own MP3s. Your milage may vary on that.

I don't want to say too much as a point and click game is all about the story and its hard to talk about it without spoiling anything however its a nice story line and your character is fun to play as. It's nice to see more games where you get to play as a female that isn't there purely for fan service.

I feel that this game deserves a very well earned 7/10!

It's short and sweet but its very high quality and if you like point and click games I think you should consider buying it!

Is this an overall better product than Serpent Creek? Maybe....I am not suffering as much from the dysphoria today so maybe that put me in an overall better mood. Frankley I am happy to have played and experienced them both however :)

This is a nice little studio, I think I would consider myself a fan and I will hopefully get a chance to play some of their other games soon!

There are a few shock elements that made me sit up (but then, I thought Indiana Jones was scary when it first came out).
Didn't much care for the guy we tried to save, liked the rebel much better :)

Short version: 89%
Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden offers everything one can want in a hidden object puzzle game: a good story, fluent game flow, interesting puzzles, nice graphic design. A definite grab if you like this genre.

Long version:
There are hidden object games that try to ascend the limits of their genre to stand out. Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden chose to be good in the known game elements instead.

Although the story is just a mishmash of Bioshock and Cthulhu, it is an almost perfect mixture. It is engaging, features genuinely good twists, and has a realistic, interesting main character. The only real downside is the voice acting, it is spectacularly bad even by hidden object standards.

The puzzles themselves are spread out evenly and offer a steady progression. They require a fair amount of backtracking, but the map design doesn’t make you feel like you are walking around endlessly. The hidden object scenes are drawn well, although they have a few problems, especially if the required item is in the water.

I also have to mention the bonus chapter: not only it gives you great insight of the main story, but it even puts one of the side characters in the limelight, adding even more depth to the game.

The futuristic theme is not my thing. I like Hidden Objects that set in the past. Regardless, overall it's a good game. I did jump few times when suddenly a body shows up -not fun. The only complain I have about this and almost all the HO by the same company is the female voice actress. They keep using the same one, Kristin Price, I mean she's good but it becomes very repetitive when she does every single character’s voice in every game.

So this game likes its jumpscares so be warned.

As always hidden items games for me can be simple to super hard depending on the game.
For this one on the easiest setting the hints reset fast enough to not be frustrating and didn't reset when used for a "which way do I go" style hint.

This game suffers from the "item name/common convention/colour contrast" issue I've seen with afew of these. You're looking for a key? Well odds on its gonna be almost the same colour as its background. Looking for an umbrella? Better keep and eye out for images of one that blend into the background.

As to the voice-acting; Bland; End of story
Speaking of story its interesting and worth sitting through.

Would I recommend? Yes; At full price? Maybe not

Extremely awkward and cheesy dialogues/voice acting and a b-movie tier story, but still enjoyable for what it is eventhough the puzzles don't make much sense at times (i.e. hidden object minigames that ask you to find 20 items such as fishes, bottles and a doll to magically "craft" scissors)
