This is a puzzle game for those who genuinely like puzzles. If you think most puzzle games are too easy, you will like this one. Note I am saying the game is challenging, not obtuse. The solutions are fair in this title. You may have to look for context clues, but they are there.

In 2015, the graphics are nothing to write home about, they still look good in my eyes. This is an old school click-to-move first-person puzzler, by the way. No true 3D here.

The audio is fairly thrilling and haunting when it wants to be. Player character is masterfully voice-acted by some British fellow whose name I cannot track down.

One last thing. This is an old game. You will need to play it in windowed mode. The game does not provide a way to do this out of editing a file named config.ini in the game's directory. Edit the bFullscreen variable in this file to equal 0 instead of 1. The game is worth the trouble.

THE GAME IS BROKEN: It crashes. It's unplayable. I do not understand how this can be on steam.

Changing compatibility mode does not work: it freezes on the logos and the starting menu does not even appear. Some people suggest editing the config.ini files as a solution, but it does not work either (I am using Windows 10).

DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP, not even on sale, because you will be wasting your money on a broken game. [Insert angry face here]

An intriguing puzzle game with a lot of very challenging puzzles. Every puzzle uses a unique mechanic. Most puzzles were very difficult, only a handful of them were a little too obvious.
Well worth getting it on sale if you like a challenge!

A nice little puzzle game. Took me around 3 hours to complete. No achievement or anything. I would wait to buy it when its on special, as i did. The puzzles got a little hard towards the end, but thats to be expected i suppose. You'll want to keep a pen and paper handy though as some puzzles require you to go from one location to another to find clues. No internal note keeping system that i could find.

Overall, a 6 out of 10. Reccomend a purchase, but only when its on special.

I gave this game thumbs up because i love puzzle games, but this game is too short. I completed it in 3 and half hours. No steam achievement and non tradable cards.
