Just finished it and I wanted to warn people that want to buy this game.

I would not consider this game "good" but decent. It could easily have been a great title but there are many things very wrong or badly done (mostly because of budget I suppose) like the cinematics and certain animations that are "lifeless" and feels very awkward. But in a point-and-click it isn't a main problem, what you want is a good narration and some mystery to solve. And it delivers in that regard with some really good design of places at the 19th century. I was surprised at how invested I was after a couple hours but that's mostly because I love this style of game and can put aside any type of gameplay to focus on the story. Which has many problems and holes (again probably budget) but still holds up for a decent story.

I still recommand this game but certainly not for 20$ and certainly not to anyone. You must be very patient and already like this style of game. It is better after the first hour but don't expect too much. You should almost buy this with an intent to know how can this type of game can go right and wrong as it is very obvious in this one.

I would say up to 5, maybe 10$ it isn't a steal, but only if you know what you're getting into.

It is wonderful that there are still really entertaining games you can find in this genre. Fans of adventures should try to solve the riddles about Sir William's corpse who was a supected serial killer in life. When his body disappears, people in town start to disappear.

Very great and well done Point-and-Click game.
Has great memorable characters, nicely done scenes, and a great interesting storyline.
Only negative thing I have about it is the ending, which was very unsatisfying.
