I beat this game the first time through after 5.4 hours, which is partially because I was distracted for most of it because I really only played it while babysitting and partially because this is my first hidden object game like... ever. I bought a bundle with a bunch of them in it because the bundle was really cheap and I thought most of the games in it looked cool. I'm going to have to play through it twice more to get 100% (I kind of switched back and forth between hidden object and card matching the first time though) but that's okay. It's not going to be difficult to get 100%, as long as I play while I'm not distracted by screaming kids.

Speaking of kids, the boy enjoyed watching me play and he helped me with a couple of hidden object puzzles, so it was a pretty decent way to distract the kids, because Sunny got into watching me too.

Overall, not a bad game, with good music and decent graphics, a decent storyline, and puzzles that weren't too easy or too difficult. It was a nice introduction into the world of Point and Click games.

This was a drunk purchase and an excelent one at that. Puzzles that challange and a good story to boot. This runs beautifully on my linux machine. The graphics, the sounds, gameplay, everything is just a solid all around nice package. This is a must if you are into these types of games.

Of all the Hidden Object/Puzzle games I've played, this is one of the better ones. Interesting story, decent voice acting, some lovely graphics, and none of the puzzles are too difficult. They make you think but you should never get stumped. Add in a neat "monster", some fun jump out at you scares (no quick reflexes required - go ahead and yelp and then get back to exploring!), and lots of Steam achievements. If you like these types of games, I definitely recommend this one.

This is the second time I play a hidden objects game (I have just bought a bundle with lots of them).
The graphics are fine as well as the background music, and, to me, this game looks like a thriller movie : you have to go through a story with almost no difficulty and enjoy the scenario, even though there is nothing surprising, but that is still fine.
Just play the game twice to unlock all the achievements (you have to play some mini-games with cards or hidden objects which requires two runs), it is easy, 6 hours should be enough for a "100% achievement" !

This game is ok. The puzzles aren't very hard and the story is pretty predictable but the voice acting is good and the cutscenes are decent. I enjoyed the game, but it definitely wasn't the best I've ever played, or even close.

I have to confess I love point and click adventures. Some of the greatest I've played through are Zak Mc Kracken and both parts of Syberia. Enigmatis seems to be a great one of these genre. I've played only a hundred minutes but still am at the beginning of the game. The storyline seems to be consistent, the graphics are unique, held in a comic style, the music supports the great athmosphere. While audio is available in english only, the subtitles are german (localised).

Actually I find the game to be a good chance to improve my english language skills while listening to the talk of the characters.


The puzzles - at least till now - are quite easy, if not to say obvious. The story might be scaring for a younger audience.
So far I am happy with this buy and I hope this game will be even more tricky in the future.


Well it took me 6 hours to complete the game. I have to say the story was great also the athmosphere and cinematics. The music was good but a bit repetitive, although there are different tracks. I give this game a 8/10 rating.

1 point less for the quite short story (I have not yet played the bonus level yet you unlock after the main story)
1 point less for the quite simple quests compared to others like Syberia and other adventure I have played in the past.

After all this game is still a great buy. I only paid 3.24 € because of a discount I unlocked from some steam collective cards. This was also the reason how I learned about this game.

I would be happy if anyone that actually plan to buy this game and played it till the end would rate and comment my review here.

This is a lovely little hidden-object/point and click game, which is very easy to recommend to fans of the genre.

Enigmatis: The Mists of Ravenwood stands out from the hidden-object crowd due to its engaging story-telling, variety of puzzles and its polish. No longer am I just looking for miscellaneous objects, I am actively engaged with the characters, and cannot wait to find out how I will MacGyver them out of their difficulties!

The major let down of this title is that it is a sequel, and the first game is not available on Steam. This is slightly frustrating. I have not played the original, titles Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, however, after playing this, I am pretty sure I know the ending of it, which is a shame. That being said, you can follow the story, and there is definitely no need to have played the predecessor to enjoy The Mists of Ravenwood.

The only another negative aspect of this game, which is more of an annoyance, than a real criticism, is that the main protagonists voice acting is, at times, a little on the poor side. However, the other characters are voiced to a much higher standard, and overshadow this minor flaw. Besides, she actually does not speak enough for it to become annoying, except for in the case of the word “Sweetheart”.

This game is a gem among hidden-object game. Its quality is something I have come to expect from Artifex Mundi games, the developer seems focused on these types of hidden-object-puzzle-adventure games, and more often than not makes them well. Excellent stories, backgrounds and characters are always included.

With three difficulties, (though I would advise avoiding the lowest setting, as those helper sparkles will jump out on you just for taking a sip of coffee), steam achievements, collectables to find and a bonus story to be unlocked there’s a bit to do here, but nothing is overly frustrating. All puzzles can be skipped, hidden-object areas can be replaced by a matching memory game, and there is the standard hint function to assist.

Overall, if you love these types of games, you really really should play this game. In addition, if you have never tried anything in this type of genre, this is an exceptional example to get you started on.

This is a great example of the casual adventure genre. Yes, it is technically a hidden object type game, but there's variety in the types of puzzles. You can do hidden object minigames or mix it up with a type of two of a kind card matching game. There are standard point and click adventure elements, very nice graphics, decent sound and voice acting, and a story that's not too shabby. The story was decent enough that I was a little bit disappointed that the first one in this series wasn't available on steam. There were numerous references to events that happened in Enigmatis 1, which is not available on Steam at the time of this review.

This version of Enigmatis, which is actually the Engimatis 2 collector's edition, contains both the main story (about 4 hours long) and a side story that's maybe 1 hour long. The side story adds a bit of back story to the main, so don't play it until after completing the main game, as it will spoil the few twists in the tale.

My personal opinion on this game, as with all games, is that fair pricing depends on the value you feel it brings. This game has very little replayability as it is story based with little variation in puzzles between playthroughs. The story is relatively short, but it is a great example of a short, casual adventure game. I recommend it, but I wouldn't pay more than $6-7 for it.

Good hidden-objects game. Decent story background and fluent gameplay. The music and sound effect are also excellent. For couple of time, it got me with the startles, which is a nice job. On the other hand, this game has some problems with linking the scenes IMO. Once there're some items in my hand, but nothing is working on anything. The solution turns out to be talking to the prisoner and obtaining one from him. BOOYAH. But despite of the flaws, I like this game in general. It reminds me those old days of finding objects, solving puzzles, and looking up unknown vocabularies. BTW. hidden-object games is one of the best learning environments for non-english-native speakers to enrich vocabularies.

While I am new to this genre of game, I really enjoyed it immensely! I have played just basic Hidden Object games in the past, that did not include a story line, point and click, or other puzzles. This game, was amazing. The graphics were surprisingly good, story line kept me interested, and the puzzels were not -overly- hard to solve. I played through on Casual, and it lasted a good 6 hrs. Of course, due to not knowing there were certian things I should be looking for in order to achieve certian other goals during game play, I missed a few things. No worries though, you can always go back through and replay on different difficulties...granted, the story line doesn't change, you just don't get as many hints/clues.
I would reccomend this game to anyone who likes hiddeen object games or puzzle games, and won't mind that there is a story line involved.
Over all, I give this game a 10/10! :)

Lushly illustrated. Pulp-fantasy storyline. Puzzles that range from moderately simple to quite difficult. One of the best Artifex games. It is just really solid in all areas. [ 8 / 10 ]

Oh man, what to say about this game! It's great! I'm completely in love with it, though I must admit I'm a huge fan of Hidden Object Games and Point and Click adventures. Even so, this still is one of my favourites to date.

The game looks positively lovely, every new area entered is another masterpiece. I'm excited about things like birds flying away when hovering over them with the cursor and bushes moving in the background. The sounds (background and general gameplay noises) are amazing and the voice acting is pretty neat!

The horrorish atmosphere is perfect, be sure to put on a headset! It's a neat blend between horror and casual, especially for a scaredy cat like me. I love mysterious settings and creepy legends but am usually too scared to play them. Psychological Horror and jumpscares really are the end of me, so this is a nice way to get my creepy fix without it ending in being too scared to go to bed at night.

The puzzles aren’t very difficult but left me pleased when solved nonetheless. The Hidden Object parts of the game aren’t too messy or crowded with items, you can actually see what you’re looking at. You can also switch it up for a Card Matching Memoryish thing, if you’re more into that. At the beginning you can pick a difficulty, making the game harder if you’d wish to do so. I played it on the easiest setting because I’m a huge fan of plots and getting attached to the characters and wanted to focus on that for my first run.

I'm on my second playthrough now, to get all achievements, and I'm still amazed by everything just as I was the first time half a year ago! Recently the first game of Enigmatis (Ghosts of Maple Creek) was released on Steam and I’m simply dying to play that one too. (Yes, I’m aware I’m not playing them in the right order but that didn't really bother me. I just want to play all games by Artifex Mundi!)

TL;DR One of my favourite HOG Point&Click games.

This game is a pretty fun point and click.
Simple puzzles for a medium difficulty. Good graphics, waiting for the Square enix level point and click style graphics though....
If you like this kind of game it is well worth it. On discount, cause I'm a cheap-o. It has Steam Cards as well as Steam Achievments. What more could you want?

Just played this game through
Was really funny
Had some problems and used hints some times (played on hardest level)
But the graphics are very beautiful, the story is interesting and if you like point & click games/combining things and thinking to get further in the game, you'll definitely like this game :)

5hrs playtime whole for me (first time through)

An excellent hidden-object game, one of the best of the genre! Much better than Enigmatis 1, which you do not have to play to enjoy Enigmatis 2.

The game world is very well-developed, with creative scenes that invoke true surprise and wonder. It's very nice to see originality in this genre, which too often relies on clichéd storytelling. The puzzles are fun, and the UI is as smooth as butter.

I would also like to thank the developer for supporting Linux.
