Nothing unusual from Artifex Mundi here. Usual graphics, usual puzzles - a decent HO game. Having in mind that these aspects are always coming great from Artifex Mundi, I must say the story was pretty shallow and boring, which was a big drawback here.
Better get Grim Legends :)

Eventide is a typical craftsmen work of a hidden object game. It uses well-known mechanics and story type (granddaughter saving grandma and cute creatures from evil demon), but it knows how to use them well.

Long version:
One of the banes of hidden object games is that they all can feel relatively the same. For example, if you think about a typical modern HOG with all of the usual HOG elements, you think about a game like Eventide: Slavic Fable.

Not that it’s a bad thing; Eventide knows its trade well. With its great graphics and enjoyable hidden/fragmented object scenes, there isn’t much that can be said against it. Well, okay, the map system is barely useful and it really needs more puzzles over the point ‘n’ click style item management.

The story also likes to stay on known waters: our heroine has to go on a journey to save her grandmother from the clutches of an evil Slavic half-demon, and to do so, she gets help from other Slavic creatures. By the way, the game really wants to remind everyone that it is about Slavic folklore. Maybe a little too much…

Artifex Mundi is a guarantee for a good quality hidden object game as always.
It is a fantasy story with colorful nice backgrounds and catchy music. Also i have to notice the variety of the puzzles which are amazing. If you like the hidden object /puzzle games then I think it is a very good buy for 4 bucks (special promotion price). Here is the first 10 minutes, I think it will help you decide if you are thinking on to buy it.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hXiV39XRbY

Beautiful color palette of earthy autumn tones to match an equally earthy game. Slavic mythology centers around the hearth, the home, and the natural world. This game does that extemely well in presentation, storyline and the creatures used, and is family friendly in theme.

Storyline: Dr. Mary Gilbert, botantist and saviour of endangered moss in Maple Creek (Maple Creek - omage to Enigmatis) has received a letter from her grandmother referred to as Baba (Yaga Baba reference) urgently requesting her help to save a rare and endangered plant in the Slavic Park, an educational outdoor museum centered around Slavic mythological creatures. Upon arriving Mary is attacked by a creature and her car is shoved off a cliff. Escaping the car begins the quest adventure of saving her soon to be kidnapped grandmother, meeting the mythology creatures who have taken refuge in the park, healing the rare and magical plant, and ultimately defeating the villian in an apropos way.

Gameplay: This game is more point and click then hidden object but plays as a combination of both. There are basically three main areas of the game, the Slavic Park, the abandoned village and the castle with side quests into other areas. There is a fast travel map but the player can not return to the Slavic Park once they cross the lake to the abandoned village. So make sure all the extras finds (notes, etc and bestiary cards) are found before crossing the lake.

Hidden Object: The Hidden Object scenes are mostly fragmented HOs (find the pictured pieces to create a single object), find "X" amount of objects, and near the end of the game are list HO finds. The list HOs have "ghost" puzzle pieces beneath them that the player clicks on to complete the 'extra' puzzle and the HO scene.

Puzzles: Nothing overly challenging and a variety of basic fun fare. Sliders, pipe puzzle, picture puzzles, codes, telescope challenge, and a maze.

There are three extra find challenges in this game:
1) 30 bright pink purplish flowers that are very hard to miss.
2) Finding all the notes, posters, pictures, diplomas, signs, etc in the main game. Note: I am unsure exactly which ones are used to gain the achievement Bookworm, so do not be shy click on everything. Some are missable so click on notes, papers, etc first before any 'quest' object.
3) Collecting the bestiary cards scattered throughout the main game. Note: some are missable such as the one at the end of the maze since if not taken at the time the player can not return to get it later. These cards can be accessed during gameplay and the player can read about 30 different slavic mythological creatures. I do believe the cards must be read to gain the achievement associated with them.

Achievements: Most are gained through gameplay alone and all achievements can be earned in a single playthrough.

Fun game for the expert and beginner alike with three game modes to choose from. If playing on expert mode the first time through here's a hint: The list HO finds are found in the third part of the game (the castle and surrounding areas) these can be easy to miss so make sure to click on the background areas and places you have been before to find them.

Well worth full price for an easy romp through slavic mythology.

A charming little casual point-and-click adventure, with pleasant music and at times delightful graphics. Though the story is quite thin, it still manages to provide some character and a distinct Slavic fairytale flair.

Note that it's especially casual: the game is quite short, even when including the bonus chapter, and the puzzles are all very easy. Also, there are only a handful of hidden-object scenes, so it's not exactly a hidden-object game.

Finally, thank you, devs, for supporting Linux!

Your grandmother needs your help to save a rare flower but you're attacked by a mythic creature. Unfortunately for you, this same creature kidnaps your grandmother and the friendly man that helped you betrayed you. Your only chance is to reach his castle in this park where slavic fables are honored....

Eventide: Slavic Fable is a nice story with elements from slavic fables: everyone around, apart for your Baba, is in reality part of the slavic folklore. Given the fact that you can collect cards about each creature in this culture, you can also learn about it.

The gameplay is quite common, though the hidden objects scenes are diversified: from rebuilding an object thanks to a list of pictures to a list of items to find, as they're hiding parts of a puzzle. The puzzles are also well-balanced and kinda easy when you're used to them. Even if the game isn't developed by Artifex Mundi, the gameplay is quite similar to their own games.

The ambiance is a surreal one and a nice one, even if the game is set during the night, in a dark forest but it's not the creepy type. The only thing that is weird is the grandmother's head: I don't know how to describe it but I think it's not as well done as the others.

The soundtrack is also correct and fitting to the story.

The bonus chapter seems to be out of the blue, however, you understand quickly that it's set in the past and that you'll meet again some characters. The bonus are also nice: minigames, soundtrack, etc...

Anyway, Eventide: Slavic Fable is a nice way to learn about slavic bestiary and belief. It's also a good game published by Artifex Mundi and almost as the same quality of their own games. As usual, don't hesitate!

The first Steam game from developer The House Of Fables and it has nearly Artifex Mundi Quality. The story is good-great like the enemy. The graphics are good, most time very detailed, some persons could could drawn a little bit better, but its good enough, the most picturs are well-fantastic designed (for hidden object games standard), the search screens make fun, some are really beautiful like the glass one. Sound is good. Game length is adequate. A nice extra for me are the 30 cards you can collect, they tell in the achievement menue about fairy tail entity, a really interesting little bonus. So for HO Games Lovers (hardcore fans of this genre) i give this game about 89 % (93 % myself because its the first Steam Game), for normal fans and/ or normal gamers 77-70 %, for people that dont like Hidden Object G. dont play it ;) Thank you for reading. Hopefully enjoy. P. S. i cant await Eventide 2

I enjoyed the story. I played in expert mode and there were some times where it took some time to find some objects needed to complete a quest. I liked the graphics, colorful atmosphere, different mythical creatures. As always, Aritfex Mundi never disappoints and with that said, it would be great to have a bit more challenging puzzles in part 2. I loved this game and look forward to all future Artifex Mundi games.

Are you a fan of Slavic fairy tales? No? Well, this game might just change your mind. Eventide: Slavic Fable is a game filled with magic and mystery as the hero, Mary, goes on an adventure to save her grandmother and the Slavic heritage park named Moorland that is filled with mythical creatures. This is a hidden item game with many enjoyable moments.

The story starts with Mary, a botanist, getting a letter from her grandmother to rush to Moorland. Things go downhill from there as Mary gets into a car accident only to be saved, only to then witness her grandmother being taken away by a giant moth-like creature! The only way she can fix things is by finding a mystical flower and rejuvenating it so that its magic can be used. The creatures of Slavic legend who live in the park aid her quest to restore peace to Moorland and save the world.

The game has many beautiful hidden object scenes to keep your attention as well as fun and sometimes challenging puzzles that you must complete to progress in the game. If you’ve played other games in this genre then you won’t be surprised, however this is a nice title for players new to hidden object games or even children. The music is very fitting. Though I found several of the mythical creatures creepy, the artwork is gorgeous -the vibrant colors and attention to details made this game a pleasure to play.

The game can be on the short side, even with playing the bonus chapter. However, the game also has achievements to go after and trading cards, adding a bit more to the game. This casual title is a fun and whimsical tale that is sure to please, I do recommend grabbing Eventide: Slavic Fable if you get the opportunity; beautiful art, smooth game-play, fully voiced and an overall great experience.

Eventide: Slavic Fable is a charming point-and-click adventure that's a pleasant change from the current crop of twitchy games. It may tax your memory and observation skills at times, but the unobtrusive hint system is only ever a click away. No tutorial needed: I jumped straight in at 'advanced'. Along the way you get occasional pats on the back to reassure you you're on the right track.

If forced to point out flaws, I'd say that the developers could do with a thorough spell-check of the content; there are several phrases and words used that aren't quite right (in some puzzles the odd choice of words adds further depth). Apart from that, the program seems bug-free (except perhaps near the castle drawbridge, where the crossbow seemed to misfire -- I was forced to back out via the main menu to get around that).

Well worth the entry fee.

Usually HOGs that Artifex Mundi commissions to smaller software houses aren't very good, but this one is a gem. Good graphics and cutscenes, interesting story, achievements, cards and a bonus chapter after the main game. HO scenes and minigames are well done but fewer than usual and the game is on the short side if you're an expert player, however it was a pleasant experience and I definitely recommend it.

This game is unlike any other hidden object games I have played, which is refreshing. The artwork is lovely, and the music has not grown at all tiresome. If you have played a lot of hidden object games and want something with a different twist to the story, this one is excellent!

I played this game after completing the Enigmatis and Grim Legends series. While I didn't feel this game was as strong as those, I really enjoyed it and thought the art was beautiful. Another solid game from Artifex Mundi!

a very short but decent HOG from Artifex Mundi which is a guarantee for high quality HOG.

pros.
high resolution.
good sound tracks.
decent story.
great graphics.

cons.
very very short. main story= less than two and half hours. bonus story = around half hour.
WAY TOO EASY.


for hardcore HOG fans is a should buy. but definatly not for the full price. that price for the length of the gameplay time is not fair.

I highly recommend that game on sale or from a bundle.

i give the game 7/10 due to the short time of gameplay +1 for cards =8/10
