About This Game

It is the year 1830, and a young governess named Ester has just received a letter that will change her life forever.

The message from her aunt tells Ester that her parents, whom she never met, left her an inheritance – a mansion in London. But when she goes there, it turns out that the residence is abandoned, run-down, and haunted.

When she explores the mansion, slowly learning her family’s secrets, she discovers that for many centuries, members of her family have been investigating the phenomenon of time travel. Soon Ester finds a strange object that confirms the extraordinary legacy of the Ambrose family. This is how her exciting journey, which will lead her to places – and times - she had previously only seen in dreams, begins.

During her adventure across time and space, she will discover forgotten artifacts, meet extraordinary beings, and experience supernatural events. Trying to unravel the secrets of her heritage, Ester grows ever more entangled in an ancient struggle between the wizard Merlin and his rival, Viviana.

Will the young governess change the course of history and solve her family’s ancient mystery?

Another good Artifex Mundi game. I didn't experience any of the issues some other reviews are complaining about.

Sadistic hidden object scenes, irrelevant plot with one of the worst ending in a HOG ever (wow!) and, to top it off, I encountered the worst bug you could picture in that kind of game : in one of the hidden object scenes, three of the listed items were mislabeled as others.
The first game in that series being bad already, they may serve to point out how Artifex didn't become masters of the genre overnight. Beyond gaming archeology purposes, they probably should be left alone.

Solid Artifex Mundi HOG. It's older, so the graphics aren't as good as their more recent games.

Along the same lines as the first one, this is a pretty straightforward hidden object game. The plot is a bit less contrived than the first one and is still not very well written/acted, but the graphics and cohesion are a big step up from the first one. Nothing particularly special about this either, and still fairly easy to get the achievements if that's what you're after.

Definitely better than its prequel, but still rather meh.

Since it is a time-travel game, some of the puzzles feature doing things in the past to change the future, which is pretty neat. There are a lot of locations to visit, so it's nice to have the map pointing out where I should go next.

In the hidden object-scenes, some of the objects are actually hidden behind others :( And I got quite tired of returning to the same scenes over and over again. At least in some games, the items you remove are gone the second time around, but not here.
