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...

So far so good.

The cut scenes are animated in much better fashion than most games of this genre. So far the story is not as cloyingly sweet as it could be, and the puzzles have been varied. There are 3 difficulty levels to choose from, so you can make it more challenging if you wish. I'd buy it again.

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride is a high quality adventure/hidden object game with a large variety of puzzles, much moreso than many games in the genre. There are also many hidden collectibles and extra features in the Collector's Edition. The artwork is colorful and interesting. The story is solid as well. It takes about 4-5 hours to beat the game, though you would need to beat it twice to collect all of the achievements.

There's not much I can say that the other reviewers haven't already. I've read through them all and I have to agree. In my opinion, this is an amazing game. Great story, good voice acting, fun puzzles, lots to look for (morphing objects and faerie spirits with very neat leaf wings), the cutest ever cat companion, very nice graphics, better than average music (found myself humming along), and more. One of the testaments of a great game is that you actually look forwards to playing it again to grab the rest of the achievements or try out puzzles you missed the first time around. I just beat the game and, after lunch, I'm starting over on expert and I'm going to enjoy the story all over again. Two thumbs up from me!

This was a wonderful game, I usually do not play the hidden object games a lot but this one had a great story and the puzzles were very challenging. Once I started playing I couldn't stop until I had heard the whole story and completed the game. I also loved the fact that there was bonus content and lots of collectables. If you love a good story and like hidden object games with challenging puzzles than this is a great game for you.

One of the features I truley enjoyed was having the option to either play dominos or do the hidden object part in the game, since i love dominos I used that option more often to solve the puzzles.

I really enjoyed this game, I think its my favourite from Artifex Mundi so far. The game has beautiful graphics and manages to create an interesting fantasy-like atmosphere. The puzzles make you think but aren't truly difficult, which means that you won't really get stuck, especially on the lower difficulty settings. If you don't like hidden object scenes, there is also the option to play a game of dominoes instead. As for the story: if you pay attention you can see some of the plot twists coming, but the tale is interesting enough to keep you hooked. On the whole, I'd definitely recommend this game.
