About This Game

Enter an enchanting world of legends and magic, filled with gloomy forests, forbidden temples, and abandoned castles; a realm of dark secrets, where your destiny was written long before your birth...

Within the shadow of an ancient forest, on the bottom of a foggy valley, stands the lonely village of Ravenbrook. The folk there are cheerful and diligent, yet warily superstitious. They surround the village with countless charms to keep the evil spirits at bay, for on the other side of the forest, there lies a seemingly bottomless pit, known as the Abyss. It is the place the villagers of Ravenbrook fear most...

On this night, a young woman is returning home for her twin sister’s wedding. The sisters haven’t seen each other in years. Yet the invitation was strange, almost as if someone else wrote it, other than her twin. But still she comes, ignorant of the danger that awaits...

For just before the wedding, amidst the happiness and reverie, a stranger arrived in Ravenbrook...

Grim legends: the forsaken bride - Review

"Why did you leave me?! How could you do it?! All your professions of love! All your promises...! They were all lies. Curse you and your heartless kin!"
And so goes the dramatic intro scene of Grim legends: the forsaken bride. Not knowing what I was getting myself into, I bought the game at a discounted price after seeing a very good friend play it. I remember looking at the store page and ridiculing it at first, thinking it was a 'stupid, little game'. Well in essence, it actually is that ... But it is so much fun that I told myself to review it right after completing the game. Now that I did, it is time to talk about what this game has to offer.

First, I'd like to mention that this game probably won't be for everyone. Just like certain puzzle and point & click games, this game is played by a fairly limited amount of people. Not because it is bad, but because it is a very specific genre (that not everyone will like) that is targeted at a certain audience. So please keep that in mind.
This game is specified as a HOG (hidden object game) and as its name implies, you play through the game finding hidden objects so that you can advance your adventure. You play through several scenes (or environments) and have to find objects that you can then use for certain actions, puzzles, hidden object scenes ... This pretty much sums up the gameplay and may not sound very exciting, but it's actually very satisfying. Even little and simple actions and puzzles are fun to do and solve. The great and calm soundtrack that I hear in the background really makes it a very soothing experience. The story kept me motivated to complete the game, even though it may not have been a unique one. I just loved playing this game inbetween my more 'serious' games and I am grateful that I discovered Artifex Mundi, the creater of amazing HOG's.

I like

+ A story that is not really unique, but still very enjoyable
+ Ok voice acting
+ Great, relaxing soundtrack
+ Really satisfying gameplay
+ Difficulty is just about right
+ Attention to detail
+ Decent length
+ Extra little chapter!
+ Overall fun and engaging experience

I don't like

There's nothing I can think of right now. Maybe that's because this is my first HOG, or maybe that's because AM are amazing developers.

Conclusion

I recommend this to all HOG lovers for 100% and 99% to other people who never played a HOG before. You may end up liking it a lot like I did (and let's be honest, this game is pretty cheap, especially on a sale). I'm looking forward to playing other AM games for sure, hoping they are an experience as amazing as this one (or even better)!

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride, is definitely my favourite HOG so far. The story is enjoyable, and the Visuals are Beautiful. The Voice Acting of the Sister you play as was well done, but I did find some of the other Characters to be over done in parts.

I found the Puzzles to be very interesting and never once wanted to skip one from being tedious. The added bonus of your little Kitty Companion [I Love Cats!] was also very welcomed!

Although I also enjoyed the Music, I just found it to be looped way too much, and I would have much preferred a longer Soundtrack for it.

Coming back to your hometown for the wedding of your twin sister, a terrifying bear kidnapped her. Helped by her fiancé, you're going to save her... But who is really saving who? And who is really your family?

Artifex Mundi is trying to deliver a sad and creepy fairy tale, though creepy isn't really the right word for it. The plot is well-written and full of twists. As usual, they managed to get you captived.

The gameplay is not innovative as it's always find items, clear hidden objects scenes, solve puzzles, find beyond objects BUT everything is well polished. Everything is well polished.

The reason why Grim Legends is one of my favorite series from AM are the graphics and the soundtrack. Indeed, given the fact that they're mastering the mysterious and dark side, Grim Legends is at the same time colorful and surrounded by an aura of lurking evil, as you're playing mainly during the night, that you're also visiting places tied to that kind of ambiance (forest, witch's cabin, castle, etc.). What is nice too is also the fact that you're discovering the tale as a bonus too. The soundtrack is as usual well fit.

Besides, I've noticed something: I've rarely saw the main protagonist as being male. For the games released on Steam, you're always a woman, that has brains and can survive by herself despite the era or the world. I mean by that that here, in Grim Legends, you're not the damsel in distress even if it's another woman - though your twin sister is as strong as you.

Anyway, if anything, Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride is one of the HO you must have and you must try. Really. Well done, Artifex Mundi!
