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 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" !

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 ]

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.

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)

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.

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.

A strongly, well wrtten B movie setting and acting makes Enigmatis The Mists of Ravenwood easy to recommedn. I am not the usual casual player but what i am finding is their is talent abound in the industry everywhere. Why can a casula title narrate an entertaining story from start to finish and yet all the money AAA throws out cant come close to what this exceeds, baffling.
As for game play Enigmatis is your basic point and click adventure where you will mostly be finding a piece to unlock another piece that will eventually unlock another piece. Its all good and for the most part simple, none of the puzzles were difficult and there is a hint system built in if you get stuck. The world itself is set in a theme park and is beutifully created. The music also is excellant as it strikes the mood and tone perfectly. The only gripe as i first stated is it is B movie materaial but the lead actress voice acting is horrible, no emotion whatsoever.
Another great couch and laptop game that will keep you entertained and wanting to see the story till the end.

Positives
Really good story telling and writing. Great ending
Lots of content. My clock time for both stories is at 8hrs.
Beutiful art
Relaxing
Puzzles are diverse and spaced to keep them fresh
Production is impressive
Music sets the mood and tone perfectly
Has raised my level of intrest in the genre

Negatives
Voice acting
References to the previous game
Filler content, re doing the same search puzzle scene x2
one or two instances that dont make sense for a puzzle solution
Did not know until almost done that you could fast travel

I really loved this game! The characters were quite interesting with good voice overs.

Some of the interaction was easy and some of it was really challenging. I found myself having to go back over some screens to find what I had missed. It was a great mix of easy and hard.

I loved the graphics and story line. It is definitley a play over game, which is like double for our money. I bought this one full price and I was not dissapointed.

There was a man in the game you had to trust to help you, even though you had no idea if he was really helping you or just himself. Some great twists and turns.

I don't like to give spoilers, so I suggest that you give this game a try. You will not be dissapointed!!

This game is a treat for the eyes. Vibrantly illustrated, I found myself looking forward to getting to the next environment, and the subtle little surprises in it. Although not a long game, it is a fun play for those who appreciate the genre. The story and soundtrack are interesting and engaging, the puzzles range from simple to fairly challenging and I found it quite addictive. Completed in less than 4 hours, but skipped doing the pair-matching games. I'd say an easy 5 hours or so for 100% achievements. Grabbed it on sale. Was not at all disappointed.

This is actually a sequel, but the first game in the series gets abysmal reviews so I gave it a miss. That said, I don't feel like I needed to play #1 to understand what's going on here.

It's a great game in the HO/puzzle/adventure game genre - great voice acting, great music, great graphics, really great plot. There's a third either coming or already out, so this one leaves you hanging for sure. No resolution to the storyline. But there's a twist at the end that totally shocked me, which is hard to do, so I ended up feeling very satisfied and impressed.

I don't usually play these point and click adventrures but the story in the trailer had me very intrested, I'll have to say I wasn't dissapointed either. Once I started the game I had no intention of sitting there for the 4 hours that I did. I found it kinda relaxing and the story was actually decent. I found myself actually wanting to solve the mystery and paying attention to the story. The puzzles aren't extremely hard and there is a casual mode if you are having trouble. The graphics were decent in the cutscenes and sceneries and the voice acting was even played out pretty well. All in all I enjoyed it and am getting ready to play the new part I just unlocked. I think its worth the money, especially with the current 30% off.

I'm not much into these "point n' click" games, I can count the ones I played on a single hand.
The trailer of this game howewer made me interested and I can honestly say that I didn't regret buying it.
Even I, someone who has absolutely no experience with this genre, found this game entertaining, addictive and enchanting. The puzzles are not THAT hard to figure out, so there's no frustation (also multiple difficulty levels for the more experienced players - needless to say, I played on Casual xD) plus the story itself is well paced and interesting as well.

An awesome experience and a good example of true quality work.
Count me in for the first episode's (re-)release!

For a "simple" game, I can easily recommend Ravenwood--the atmospheres are great, the visuals are nice, and the story is fine. For a puzzle game, I did not find it very challenging or frustrating, but that can be taken as a good thing for some. Overall it was a nice experience.

However, on the note of the "horror" aspects of the game, I would say it's more along the lines of a "spooky" game rather than a "horror" game. Does that take anything away from the game? Not at all! I still found myself enjoying every minute of the creepy areas and little spooks that popped-up through my playthrough.

My only negative remarks are for the voice-acting and the facial animations. I feel like this could have done better with simple text and expressions rather than the acting and psuedo-animation. But I never felt drawn-out of the adventure because of them, so they should not be considered a deal-breaker.

Overall an enjoyable game that I can easily recommend.

I really enjoyed playing this game. The story was really quite good and had a few extra tasks (collectables) beyond standard search puzzles to do along the way. Took me a little over 5 hours to complete which is pretty good for a less than $6 game.

Game is linear, puzzles are fairly easy as far as mini games go but don't let that put you off. In spite of these points, i found the game fun to play and highly reccomend it.
