Great game. Just difficult enough to be challenging.

This game isn't astounding by any means, but as far as HOGs go, it's pretty good.

The story and dialogue are really cheesy, but let's be honest, that's pretty much the standard for these kind of games - if you're into them, you don't mind some cheese. I personally got a few laughs out of the stiff character models and their almost robotic voices. Also the ghost of the main character's grandmother, who sounds like a man trying to imitate an old woman a la Mrs. Doubtfire, had me chuckling. If you think you'll find that sort of thing off-putting, stay away. If you're like me, however, you'll find it oddly endearing. Like watching an old B-movie.

Anyway, the most important thing is that the puzzles and hidden object scenes are well done, and they certainly are. They won't be very challenging if you've played a lot of HOGs, but they'll still be fun. Like I said, nothing astounding, but still pretty good. They had me entertained enough that I'll probably play the rest of the games in this series.

If you like HOGs and have a few bucks and a rainy afternoon to kill, go ahead and pick this up. If you're totally new to HOGs...eh, maybe try the Mystery Case Files games first, and if you want more after that, move onto this.

Nice story, background.
Two much HO scenes from my point of view.
And on each scene all the items are here again & again even if you have done the scene before.
Quite long & a bit difficult if you begin with HO games
8/10

Biggest gripe: The game has "Beyond Objects" which are images that shift while stationary in an area, and you can try to find/click them all. There are no achievements, and there's no sign that it would unlock anything, it's just for fun. I intended to work on finding them all, except the final action in the game (which didn't seem like it would be the end of the game...) thrusts you into the ending video and erases your progress automatically and unlocks the bonus adventure, so I'd have to go through the entire main game again. ♥♥♥♥ that.

As mentioned, there are no achievements, so the only reason to play on expert mode is if you want it to be harder.

Other than that, great hidden object/adventure-lite game, very well done, rivals or beats the best of the Artifex Mundi ones. I went in expecting a stupid story, and the game delivered that, haha, but the gameplay is good. The map system takes 2 clicks to get to, they could have streamlined that, but that's only a minor inconvenience.

I really recommend this game (along with the rest of the House of 1000 Doors games, which only seem to improve as the series goes on)! Though the voice acting can be a bit wonky/robotic at times, I think the main plot point of this game (there is a house that appears at certain places/times because there are souls who haven't found peace) is intriguing and super interesting. I love the visuals, the music is amazing, and while you're kind of alone with your thoughts most of the time, I think it really adds to how melancholic and sad this game truly is. It has a lot of the basics of a HOG but also pairs it with a fascinating and immersive storyline.

I do have two complaints, though:
1. Functional fixedness in this game drives me CRAZY. I know how ridiculous this sounds, but sometimes the game requires a very specific object for a task when you already have something in your inventory that could just as easily complete what needs to be done (for example, using a knife vs scissors to cut something). I know it's because the game is super expansive and if you could complete every task using a select few objects, it would be boring, but it still can be irritating at times.
2. This seems to be a pattern with most of the games this company puts out, but the ending is extremely rushed. Not only that, but the last door/portal you enter is extremely out of place in comparison to the other storylines. I don't know what it is about this company and their need to insert magic/demons/weird sci-fi elements ONLY at the tail-end of a great story, but that's what happens here, and it's a little sad, because the rest of the storylines are so beautifully thought out. The fourth and final portal is so short in comparison it feels tacked on.

That being said, if you purchase the CE, there is a phenomenal additional chapter to play which totally (IMO) makes up for the quickness of the final door. You get to learn more about Kate's family/why and how she's tied to the House (and also how it works), and it's on par with the melancholy of the earlier plotlines.

I really enjoyed this game and really recommend it, simply because the storylines are so fascinating (if you ignore when they randomly add magical elements), it has a longer gameplay than most HOG, and the environments are expansive and beautifully rendered.

I might be a bit biased since this was the game that got me into the Hidden Object genre. However, after replaying it, I'm still very impressed with the quality of story telling, the integration of hidden object scenes and the well-laid out map of the game. The central rooms of the house are revisited frequently, but there is always something new that can be unlocked. Pathing through the game is coherant, never leaving the player lost and trying to remember where things are located.

The hidden object scenes and mini-games are excellent. The 4 mini-stories that drive the plot are simple, creepy and touching.

Excellent game!

I quite liked the story, I just couldnt stop playing ^^ A good combination of clicking, riddle solving and hidden objects minigames. It was a bit let down that I couldn't play the minigames after finishing the story and the bonus story... The enviroment graphics was quite good but the video scenes kind of not suited the game (the heavy half-still graphics of them not quite fitted into the mood). I'm looking forward more stories of the game, since the 1000 doors allow/has a lot of gameplay possibilities :)

Velmi průměrný zásek v tomto žánru. Graficky je hra moc pěkná, ale příběh nestojí za nic a hádanky i používání předmětů je zcela náhodné. Lehoučký palec nahoru především díky výrazně vyšší herní době oproti konkurenci.

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.)
Rating: 10/10 Value: $9.99

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...

I'm redoing the review as I've replayed the game, which is part of the House of Stark 6-in-1 Bundle, with the Snark Busters Trilogy and three (out of four) games in the House of 1000 Doors series.

The story in itself has no real goal but to wander around and help the residents to finish their tasks or to relieve them (Sammy, Chloe and Amanda are all being disturbed by something). However, the mystery in itself is in reality a test and a choice that Kate, the protagonist, has to make. The bonus chapter is the return of the manor and a request from Margaret Fox, Kate's grandmother.

The gameplay is pretty standard: find items around, use them, solve puzzles (they're really easy apart for one), clear hidden objects scenes (I must say that you don't have many of them and that the developpers recycled some scenes up until 5 times at least). As I've already said, everything is easy, even the hunt for beyond objects as they're easily spot thanks to a change of shape of the cursor. It didn't prevent me to miss some of them as they were in close-up scenes (meaning that some locations had two instead of one).

While the graphics in the cutscenes are average, I liked however the rest of the game as the scenes are really well done. The soundtrack is also very enjoyable.

True, the game isn't any Artifex Mundi developed but it could be easily included in their publishing catalogue. By saying that, it means that I consider this first House of 1000 Doors as a high quality game. For me, it's a must-have.
