Story: Two years after the events at Maple Creek our intrepid and stubborn female detective has heard rumors of mysterious disappearances in Northern California's Redwood National Park. Believing the elusive Maple Creek Preacher is involved, she goes there. While driving through a remote part of the redwood forest overlooking the coast she is nearly hit by a black cloudy flying "thing" before encountering what appears to be an accident scene involving a family camper. No accident, as it turns out when the black cloudy raven with red glowing eyes attacks again to retrieve the girl child who escaped the first time. Drawn both willingly and cautiously into the dark sinister world of Ravenwood Park, (most probably an unregistered and unheard of tourist stop about the past lumber industry), she once again encounters dark and evil forces at work as she thrives to rescue the captured family. Old friends, new friends and a lethal enemy. Be warned, friends are only enemies with mutual goals.

Gameplay: Hmmm....I must digress slightly here. I will compare this to Enigmatis: Maple Creek first, since generally fans of a particular company will play the sequel (or more) even if they hated the previous game if they like the company that made it. (Or there was spectacular advertising,)
First of all Enigmatis: Ravenwood plays so much easier then Maple Creek. Artifex Mundi turned the volume down on the horror and suspense but upped the creepy and supernatural elements, yet left all the mystery, anxiety and urgency. Like that or not, this game is PG, not PG17, and I for one thank Artifex Mundi for doing this. Even the few jump scares (mostly at the beginning) were not that bad. Though I must say there were some truly terrifying and horrifying scenes in this game.
The second thing Artifex Mundi did was stop being "jerks" in the hidden object scenes. ("Jerks" by my definition make find clues in hidden object scenes so hard or so obscure the find clue is nearly impossible to locate.) Thank you for that too. Ravenwood plays like a dream compared Maple Creek in that aspect.
Third thing: There is a no-penalty fast travel map. Thank you so much.

Now just about Ravenwood, well almost, since it retains the same investigation "evidence board" as the first game. The "evidence board" is where our detective places all the clues she finds and groups them together in circles concerning a certain subject like identity, location, crime, suspects, etc. This is a clever mechanism for storytelling and informing the player what has been and still needs to be accomplished, as well as subtly reminding the player this woman is a resourceful detective. (In my opinion she is just as resourceful as Macgyver.) If this series continues, I do hope they continue using this play strategy, it is very different from other games. One even gets an achievement for finding all the evidence, and another for conditionally placing it correctly. Now that is clever.

The Hidden Object scenes vary from straight find lists with the added extra twist of locating the object first such as in a drawer or pouring a glass of wine from a bottle, to what I call shape picture puzzles. (Those are the puzzles that show a shape that must be found first then used, such as the shape of a key which once found opens something.) Not so easy to be simple (They did not overcompensate from Maple Creek.) but not so hard the gamer rage-quits either. Just good even average on the difficulty level.

The actual puzzles are easy to understand and relatively challenging. I do believe I noticed that as the game progressed the puzzle challenges slowly increased in difficulty as did actually finding all the pieces of the puzzle. By the end of the game as the game scope narrows the player frequently has an empty or near empty inventory. For me it increased the "felt" urgency as if I could actually be late and "not save day".

This game (probably due to the age) introduces the alternate hidden object play I have come to think of as one of Artifex Mundi's signatures. Instead of doing the hidden object scene, one can play a matching game instead. (This is Mahjong in the Nightmares from Deep series). Unfortunately this also requires a second playthrough if achievement hunting. I really wish Artifex Mundi (or any game developer for that matter that forces a second playthrough) allowed the other set of achievements (play all hidden object games or play all alternate games) to be gotten by the playing all the hidden object scenes in the extras as one or the other.

There are two sets of extra find objects. One the "Illusion" objects that even though they fade in and out, do so rapidly and are quite large. It is very hard to miss these. The Illlusion changes from well maintained to decrepit abandonment, which is in keeping with the Ravenwood game theme. These are kept track of in the notebook at the back, which is a very nice touch. The second set are the "Ethereal Butterflies" These are easier to miss 1) because they are smaller and 2) the gamer gets distracted. Make sure to get them before moving on, there are one or two the gamer can not go back for. These are not conveniently kept track of either.

Overall, a good game and I hope the series continues since the ending was left open.

Since i thumbed down the first game of the series (Enigmatis 1) this time im going to write something up too.
This time ArtifexMundi did great job. Good like almost every their game (so far only enigmatis1 was dissapointment for me). Sound and visuals are really nice. Warm, colorful etc. Story is pretty solid, tho for me its a lil bit over the top.
Puzzles are not to hard, but thats a good thing i guess. Also this time you can choose between hidden object or playing two of a pair ("Memory" with a bit changed rules).

Just play it, and enjoy :)

An objectively better game than the first one... but I don't think I've ever played a HOG that allows the user to cut out the majority of hidden object games. That's correct, in this game (in addition to the ability to outright skip puzzles) you can opt for a match-2 game if HOGs just aren't up your alley. However, just comparing the two, it's clear that the devs put way more time and effort into the previous, seeing as each HOG is unique as well as visually pleasing, while the match 2 game is just the same exact game repeated ad nauseam.

In addition to that, almost every aspect of the game has improved from its predecessor. Better voice acting, clearer interface, a nice extras/options menu, and MUCH better puzzles/deductions outside of the aforementioned HOGs/Match-2s. The storyline is still pretty mediocre and as for the "plot twists", anyone with half a brain could forcast them from 10 minutes into the game.

If you're after some simple ol' sleuthing and hidden object finding, this game is probably one of the best of the market, as long as you don't expect a lot from a well-worn storyline.
