First episode of the series where you get to discover the house of 1.000 doors and meet all its inhabitants, this is a HOG of rather good quality. It lasted 6 hours, which is pretty rare for a HOG! The search scenes are beautiful and clear, not cluttered, so the game is rather easy. There are a lot of special actions to do in the HOG scenes (using a scissors, drawing something, etc) and a lot of interactions outside the HOG scenes. The mini games are well done, some being quite originals. There's morphing items to collect. The cut scenes are numerous and well done, the music is nice. What I really appreciated is all the different screen resolution options; HOGs that have that are too few.
It's very classic but it's a good casual hidden object game, I do recommend it.

This is a really well made game of this genre.

The story is totally absurd and not credible at all, things do not really make that much sense. But this game is majorly based on its mechanics and ways to play.

Things are not that hard here, you have to explore and find the necessary things that will make you progress. And then later you will find something that is required earlier in the house, and then you go back to another thing, etc, that is how you will progress here.

This game also has the hidden object thing. Not really hard, also, so you won't be frustrated.

By the way, this game is very forgiving. If you don't really know how to progress, just open the "Strategy Guide" and pronto! You will know what to do next in the game.

Do not play this expecting a good story, but you will actually find a pretty nice game of this genre. If you like this type of game, go for it. If you don't, maybe this one is actually a nice first try, just wait for a sale.

It is, also, a bit creepy

Fun HOG to play. In this game you will play as Kate and be dealing with ghost's while trying to help them out.

The voice acting was ok. The art and BG fo this game was very nice. The music is very nice too.

The only complain I have was that the chapter you just finish the game and that's it. I wish the bonus story had more content since I enjoyed playing the bonus chapter too:)

This is a HOG that you don't want to miss

Really cool game, loved how you go to different worlds inside the same game. Artwork is really beautiful. The soundtrack could be a bit better, because it's too repetitive (think it's basically the same theme playing during the entire game). If you like hidden object/puzzle games, I surely recomend this game if you buy it on sales.

This is a really good hidden object game with logical game play, without too much silly backtracking. There's a nice range of mini game puzzles which are often challenging enough to stretch you without being so ridiculous that you just automatically reach for the skip button.

Game length is good too. I think I spent around 4 hours on it and it's good for picking up and putting down again.

There are the 'elusive objects' to find, but no achievement for doing so. That would be my only real criticism. Otherwise a fun game overall. Sequel almost equally good.

Set in a mysterious mansion that appears all around the world at different times, the game puts players in the role of a frustrated novelist who travels to the titular house to restore the good name of her family (and maybe get an idea for her next book). Or maybe she doesn't—the plot gets a little confused towards the end, although that will be addressed in a moment.

First, the HOG criteria:

Criterion 1: To what degree do the puzzle screens look like a thrift store vomited on my monitor?

This isn't one of the genre's shining moments, by any means. Every item collection screen is full of random nonsensical clutter, along with a fair amount of trick items that can only be found by assembling other pieces of clutter or finding a secret sub-screen within the main area. To the game's credit, finding these items is made far easier by the fact that complicated items are highlighted in the list. The game also has a better explanation for the clutter than most. After all, if this house really travels through time and space, who's to say what random garbage it might pick up?

Criterion 2: Are the searches justified by the premise/story?

Not especially. It's bog-standard design right down the line on this front. Players move through a series of screens, unlocking doors and solving simple puzzles (or skipping them with the aid of an extremely fair hint system) until they find that they're missing a certain item. Suddenly a previous area is bathed in a magical glow, and it's time to find that item! (Along with twenty other arbitrary knickknacks.) Not especially disappointing, but the developers certainly weren't going the extra mile this time around.

Criterion 3: How well do the various puzzles and object searches meld together to form a coherent whole?

House of 1000 Doors is something of an odd case, since the story that the player finds themselves participating in has very little to do with the plot they're promised at the outset.

After a chilling opening movie, the main character is contacted by a ghostly relative, and told that the only way to clear their family's name is to go to the house. So the player does, and finds herself tasked with traveling to the sites of a variety of murders—all involving a tragic death in the past (some more gruesome than others)—and solving puzzles to put the ghosts involved to a peaceful rest.

The bizarre part is that the main character's relative isn't mentioned. The nature of her scandal never comes up, and by the time the end of the game rolls around I'd almost forgotten what the point of the whole endeavor was supposed to be in the first place. It wasn't until the main character mentions in her final monologue that she'd gotten the evidence she needed to vindicate her ancestors that I was reminded of the game's purported storyline—and mildly annoyed, since nothing like that had actually happened.

After beating the game I discovered that the main story—really the entire central plot of the game, is entirely dealt with and resolved in a bonus unlockable chapter that's included only in the "collector's edition" of the game. Luckily the publishers were kind enough to provide me with that version for review, but I worry that anyone playing the standard game would come away completely disappointed (and somewhat baffled) by the utter lack of a resolution.

With all the ghosts, murders, and tragic histories one would expect from a gothic melodrama, House of 1000 Doors does a great job of finding an eerie tone for the game and giving players a consistent level of challenge as they explore their way through it. It definitely loses marks for the bizarre mishandling of its plot, but beyond that, the mechanics are solid, and it's successful at everything else it attempts.

Its a point and click hidden object game. Its a fun game with an interesting storyline. None of the challenges are too hard. Not bad for a beginner and with the hint system you can't get too stuck. I have already gotten the next House of 1000 Doors game. I might replay it to find all the "beyond objects," (hidden objects throughout the rooms that have no impact on gameplay). I definitely recommend getting it if you see it on sale. Average deal when not on sale.

If finding objects in multiple places at once is your cup of tea, then House of 1,000 Doors: Family Secrets is for you. Personally I don't find the story line to that difficult to understand. As long as you take the time to listen to what the characters are saying to you, then you'll have smooth sailing when it comes to suspence and drama. If you are a newer hidden objects player, then I would recommened for you to play this as well. This game is pretty good when it comes to exploring and unlocking places, which requires the hidden object aspect of it.

Hidden object & fetching the item game. Pretty staight forward. Mid level difficulty on the hidden object and insane difficulty on finding the objects. Luckily this version comes with a nifty guide and a hint button. By the end I was just mashing the hint button whenever it popped up. If you wanted to work your way through with no hints would take a very long time since everything you need is always on the complete other side of the map. Good game though and if you don't mind using the hint button then it's pretty fun. Good for some mindless clicking.

Pretty impressed with this one, gotta be honest. (Except for the bit where there weren't actually a thousand doors. That would've been pretty awesome, though I guess more like a room escape game than a hidden object one. Which is a genre-smush I didn't know I wanted until I just wrote that sentance, but wow. Does it exist? If it does, someone let me know!)

Plots were terrible, but because there was a bunch of sub-plots tying into an overarching big plot, they didn't seem so bad - I mean, some things were are-you-SERIOUS?? level dumb, but that's pretty normal for the genre, so I can't dock it too much for that. A few things that didn't come up AT ALL in the cutscenes but were actual vital parts of the plot, which you could only find out by reading the diary, though. Made things kiiiinda confusing at times. Devs, even if you're not going to invest in quality writing, just... don't do that. It's a terrible mood.

Keyword choices were also pretty good! There were a few things I was ???? about that I think were just dialect differences, and a few reaaaally obscure terms (one I ended up googling, and the fourth or fifth result was a walkthrough for the game, soooo yeah, obscure), but there weren't any mistranslations or coding errors, which puts it a couple of steps above most games in the genre I've played. There was one instance of having two things in a HO scene which were classified as $keyword, and only one counted, though. That was pretty frustrating.

Minigames were pretty good; nothing amazing, but nothing bad, just solid little puzzles. Art was nice, VAing - well, terrible, but again, that's not unusual. A few places where I wasn't sure what to do next, but there was a map with action-avaliable highlighting and warping, so I could usually figure it out before too long. There were a couple of places where you had to use a specific tool even though you had something else that would actually be better for it, or would work equally as well (pots of water being just as good to put out a fire as a bucket of water, for example), which was annoying but, again, pretty normal (and probably really hard to code differently unless you completely redesgined the entire game, to be fair).

Conclusion: solid game of its genre!

5/5 Stars

6 hours of enjoyable playtime. Storyline is a bit "Mary Sue" but it's workable and fluid, and stays on theme for the entire game. The cut scenes aren't painfully long and the movement from one location to another is acceptable; none of that "clicking 18 times to get back to the place where you need to use the shovel" nonsense. The hidden object challenges are executed via clutter rather than ghosting images into the scene, and the puzzles have a hint button that will instantly solve them, should you be stuck or uninterested in that aspect of the gameplay.

For $5 and 6 hours of playtime, it's a decent deal. If you can get it for under $3, it's a steal.

The storyline is interesting and good, I got sucked into the game partly because of it.

The puzzles aren't easy but they also are not too hard, which I like.

I was disapointed by the ubrupt ending, but the bonus story afterwards makes up for it.

Depending on whether you're good at puzzles or not will determine how long it will take you to complete this game.

The art is very nice. The voice acting is a little weird and doesn't flow in a natural sounding way, but I don't mind.

I enjoyed this game a lot and wished it was longer!

If you like finding stuff, this is recommended. Not so much hidden object as I thought as they are many other puzzles to not make it too boring however it is still a 'hidden puzzle' game so as far as that genre goes this is a nice game.

So don't buy this game if you plan on:
Shooting lots of zombies in the face
Shooting lots of people in the crotch
Shooting at all

This is an extremely well done game. I played it a couple times before ever getting Steam and then, once I became a Steam addict, I bought this game for the cards. And played it again. And now I'm playing it for the fourth time. Yes, it's really that good. If you're a hidden object fan, you should definitely check this out.

Whats behind 1000 doors? Good voiceacting with lots of spooky stories because you play the super spook detective Kate Reed! The hidden object puzzles are real creative, instead of looking like a flea market threw up they fit the scenery for item hunting. There is a hint button, and the puzzles arent too difficult, but you cant stuck because if a person wants to just throw their life away they can hit the "skip" button bringing shame and dishonor upon their family. A helpful map indicates areas of interest because with 1000's of doors a map is kinda critical. ooOOoooo the artwork is so nice in this game, everything looks so spooky and the objects in the Hidden Object Games are very crisp and clear so people shouldnt struggle to much. This game plays like a book, its a very exciting page turner, where instead of just one story there are several stories to free the ghosts trapped here on earth. The house can travel through space and time, so who knows where you might end up!

There is a bonus game after the main game that lets you solve some additional mysteries. More than just a mere room its a whole series of events, puzzles, and more hidden object games so this game is a good value at the price.

(A concept art gallery would have been nice because the art is very good, seeing how it came to life would be nice.)

A decent hidden objects game, albeit quite easy in terms of puzzles. If you are looking for a charming story and a decent atmosphere, look no further. The story draws on clichees of occult practices and occurrences to create a setting that suits this genre well. However, if you care for puzzles that this kind of games are usually strewn with, you might want to skip this and find something more challenging.

A great Hidden Object game. Remember those Highlights magazines or I Spy books as a kid? Its kind of like those, but throw in some puzzles too. Its nothing too hard though. So if you are looking for adventure or a challenge I'd say look elsewhere for this is for those who enjoy the journey and story and its not how fast you can get through to the end. What it is, is simple problem solving and a whole lot of finding things that are hidden beyond others.

To put it simple it's a Point & Click. You go about the house pointing and clicking, sometimes "dragging" (rarely). Most doors and objects of intrest are locked. Sometimes you can go and find the key, other times you play a mini Hidden Object game (which you can hop in & out of fairly easily without losing what you found so far, which is a plus). Upon completing the mini HO game you are always awarded a object that you will need (its worth noting: usually the object awarded in question is one of the objects found in the mini game). Aside from the hidden objects sprawled about the house, there is a great deal of puzzles that must be solved to obtain other items of intrest. Also there is a tie-in with ghosts and such; you help ghosts sovle mysteries based upon themselves. In doing so, you resolve their need to be at peace.

Such is how this game is played. I find it soothing. Relaxing. A quaint little title (or not so little, but still) It's not an adventure, its an experience. And I enjoy it.

This game gets a "Yes" from Awsome Weegee.

House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets is the first game in the House of 1000 Doors series. You're a young woman, lost in a mysterious manor that appeared suddenly. In your way to find the mysteries of it, you'll meet the inhabitants... and understand why it's called the House of 1000 doors... as they're appearing and disappearing...

It's an HOG, so, you don't have to expect much than point, click, solve puzzles, find items, etc..

What makes that game so enjoyable is the storyline but also the beauty of the scenes. The game isn't too hard too.

It's not Artifex Mundi behind it but it could have been them as the game is really good.

Beautiful game, with many mysteries to understand. If you're into casual or HOG, it's a must.

"House of 1,000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition" is a pretty good casual, adventure, point-and-click, Hidden Object game (HOG). I don't know why, but the HOGs seem much more difficult than the ones in other games. Plus, the "go fetch" puzzles needed to progress through the game seem much "deeper" than I've run into (some run from almost the beginning areas of the game to near the end). Also, this is my first HOG without Achievements. I expected not to like that. But, it turns out to be more rewarding to just play the game instead of worrying if some stray mouse click or publisher design decision will lock me out of an Achievement until I make a second run through the game.

As far as mild negatives:

- the "story" feels like it's picking up in the middle (perhaps this is a sequel?),
- there are two or three instances where an object you've found is not the object you're looking for (i.e., you need a lantern, but the one you've found isn't the right one).
- the HOGs all contain objects that are hidden, but they're not color-coded as being hidden (objects that have to be manipulated or are physically hidden are textually red, but those that are in a container that just needs to be looked into are textually black).

Other than that, it's pretty much standard HOG fare: decent graphics, acceptable voice acting, tolerable story. I got about 7.3 hours of game play out of the main game, and an additional 2.3 hours out of the Bonus Chapter (totaling 9.6 hours). So, I'd say the list price is pretty close to being worth it. But, as usual, look for a deal (right now, there's a Sinister Stories Bundle (that includes this game) that costs less than just the list price of this one game). Recommended.

Very good HOG with an engaging story and challenging puzzles, especially if you play the hardest difficulty. The protagonist is a young novelist that receives an invite to a misterious house to participate in a séance. She'll have to help the spirits trapped inside the mansion to bring them eternal rest. On Steam you can find the collector's edition which has a bonus chapter and some nice extras.

"Family Secrets" is the first game of the present four games is this series. "The Palm of Zoroaster" being the fourth. If interested the other two can be found on Big Fish Games (yes, shamelss plug there, and hopefully I will not be banned). This game is layered with an overall mystery storyline running above the "adventure" cases. It is engaging, fun, intuitive, and easy to play. (All Big Fish collector's editions include strategy guides, bonus features, and extra chapters, so well worth the money spent.) One of things I like best about this particular HO game is trying to figure out where all the inventory items go. Some items get picked and used later in a different unrelated "adventure" chapter, while others stay with the player for nearly the entire game and act as red herrings or McGuffins throughout. Some of the puzzles at the start of the game are unsolvable and can only to be solved as the game progresses or near the end. It tests the memory and creates "ah-ha" moments throughout the game as "Oh that is where that item goes" and "Oh this is what I need to solve that puzzle". Of course the end is always satisfying (at least for me). The "boss" (who or whatever it is) is easy to "defeat" and the overall storyline mystery is solved conclusively. Truly enjoyed this game.

A very nice game, but when you' are a hardcore HO gamer this one is too easy. It's more a game when you;ve got nothing to do and don't want to think very hard. Buy the Sinister Bundle , now it's for sale, saves you a lot of money and this game is also included!

I did not enjoy this game as much as I've enjoyed other Hidden Objects games. Partially this was a matter of game mechanics. (For example, hiding objects inside of objects, or having to repair or transform them for them to 'count' for your search. Half the time this was figuring out the hotspots within the puzzle screen, and less about actually seeing a hidden pattern inside of a larger picture.)

[Update: I recommend other users play this on 'Casual' difficulty setting, as this will minimize the interface level issues.]

However, I really did get into the whole idea of the House of 1000 Doors itself. That part tying the whole game together across space/time/afterlife was very interesting.

There were aspects of the quest/story that just went ... nowhere. (i.e. What are the Beyond Objects for, and why can't I see my progres, or lack thereof, anywhere within the game interface?) The original game ramps you up to make an interesting choice, and then suddenly ENDS ... without actually giving you an oppurtunity to choose your final outcome at all!

However, I did really enjoy the Collectors Edition content. (Extra Chapter/Myster to solve, Strategy Guide included with game, and Wallpapers, etc.)

I recommend the original game at 3/5 Stars, but I'll give it an extra star with the Strategy Guide, etc. contect included. It was enjoyable, and I did play it all the way through, but it was not compelling! I was slightly disappointed, even for a casual/hidden objects genre game.

Final Rating: 4/5 Stars (With Collectors Edition content bonus)

Value for price? I think this is worth the $10, but this is definitely a game I'd recommend if you can catch it during a Steam Sale.

Update: I did NOT consider the value of the Steam Collectible Card drops when I originally reviewed this. If you merely trade them away for cash in your Steam Wallet, these are worth $1-$3, each [at the time I sold mine]. Expect up to 3 to drop while you play this game. (Theoretically, this game pays for itself, that way.)

The art of the game is quite nice and the hidden object scenes are pretty well done. However, I played the game on a mac first and it crashed often, it had a screen resolution bug which auto set my mac resolution to 4k at a non widescreen format with no option to change that. I played the entire game and endured the bugs and crashes only to find the cards did not drop. I then installed it on my PC and had to complete the entire game (3 hours on 2nd playthrough) a second time for the cards to finally drop. On PC there were no bugs for me. Overall the game took about 3-4 hours to complete and I was no longer enjoying it after about an hour or so. I do enjoy hidden object games, but this one didnt really do it for me. Stay away from this one if playing on a retina display mac is your only option. MAYBE pick it up in a bundle if you play on PC.

Pros:
Some nice artwork. The backgrounds are nice.
The hidden object scenes are pretty well done often requiring several steps to repair or paint or uncover objects.
Some of the puzzles are well done.



Cons:
The bugs on the mac version: resolution bug. game timer bug. crash to desktop bug. cards dont drop bug.
some pretty bad voice acting, or pretty bad script reading...can't really say acting. Major con for me.
repitition of the same hidden object scenes
overuse of hidden object scenes. At some points you are faced with one for what seems like every action.
several instances where you find an item that you need but it doesn't work ex. Needed a lantern... found a lantern, but it wanst the lantern I needed and the game does not tell you that particular lantern is not the one you need.
no map for fast travel between scenes and the game requires massive amounts of backtracking
NO ACHIEVEMENTS!

A nice enough Hidden Object game. Quite long, and with plentiful other types of puzzles mixed in.

Nice calm puzzle game. Nothing jumping out scaring you.
