About This Game

Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren`s Call is the sequel to the smash hit Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart.This epic adventure features an exciting plot full of outstanding puzzles and unforeseeable twists and turns.
When Sarah Black, curator at the Caribbean Naval Museum, receives a package from a mysterious messenger, she is unwittingly drawn into an ancient conflict. Inside the package she finds an artifact, and instantly assailants descend on the museum to rob her. The artifact is stolen. Sarah lowers her head in disbelief as she realizes that again she is falling headfirst into a nightmare from the deep.

Next Sarah finds herself on the shores of Kingsmouth, a forgotten fishing town which holds an incredible secret. A would-be messenger reveals the sad truth: he and the rest of the town’s denizens are suffering from a curse that is gradually turning them into ghoulish, mutated ocean creatures… a curse that was cast by none other than the mayor, Murray, and the old sea-devil himself, Davy Jones.

Okay, how the hell did this slip past my radar.

For everyone wondering what happened to the old point-and-click adventure games, here's your answer.

This has so far given me very strong vibes of Shadows Over Innsmouth, which makes me love the game even more. Some of the puzzles aren't overly difficult, but then again, for a genre where you have to knock the moustache off the Washington monument with a /broom/, not the /bamboo stick/, because that's for the giant panda three levels from now...

Still, don't let the 'hidden object game' fool you; this is little like the old I Spy games from yesteryear. This is a proper point-and-click adventure game geared towards a more grown up audience, with intriguing plot, interesting puzzles, and a couple nice bonus achievements for the eagle-eyed completionists out there. Hell, it opens with a kraken crushing a ship as a sailor watches in terror.

If you've been missing point-and-click adventure games, now's your chance to find them again.

If you played and liked the first game from the series (or if you simply are a hidden-objects games lover) you'll definitely end up LOVING this one. Smooth gameplay, good story, comfy puzzles, well-designed hidden-objects scenes... that's enough: stop reading this uninspired review and buy the game. You won't regret it.

It's an Artifex Mundi point and click / hidden object / puzzle game! I have no shame in finding these to be a guilty pleasure, because they're a nice change of pace from more demanding games. This one maintains the devs' usual decent standards, with generally good presentation throughout (with some weird exceptions, as though a different artist was roped in at knife-point to fill in certain gaps). The formula does wear a little thin towards the end, and there's a certain sense of going through the motions that's not evident in the first two thirds of the game. You know the drill: explore locations, pick up items, do hidden object scenes to find necessary objects to solve puzzles (in this game, they really like "swap the pieces around so they form the right picture / match the background"), and listen in horror to some stilted voice acting. It starts well, with much drama and a cutscene that they probably blew half the game's budget on (this probably explains the marionette-like animation later in the game), and then settles into a comfortable formula. Towards the end it actually starts to get, dare I say it, quite exciting! I nearly spilled my tea at one point. The dramatic music helps, and threads begin to wrap up towards the big showdown, but it never really challenges you and feels a bit anticlimactic. If you get "stuck" it nearly always means there's a new hidden object scene that's opened up somewhere on the map, and you have to wander around until you find it. Frustratingly, there are occasions where apparently useful objects can be seen in the background art, but which are non-interactive (in reality the location of the object you need is elsewhere). It's sloppy. Removing useful objects (like a hammer) and then requiring you to find another one later in the game is also annoying. However, like its terrible voice acting (one actor is wildly inconsistent, seemingly forgetting the character he's playing mid-sentence on several occasions), it comes with the territory.
