    I admit it, I have no resistance when it comes to these beautiful games. I have been trying hard not to buy any CEs. First of all, I have numerous Credits which cannot be used to buy CEs. This is because all the games I like are CEs these days. I have even tried not Demoing anything until it becomes a SE. Not working well. I have to have this! I am trying to hold out for the weekend sale in case it is for CEs.

    Blue Tea knows how to rewrite all our favorite childhood fairy tales and make them new. The FROGs are the most beautiful and difficult you will find in any game. The richness of the art is an eye feast that never ends. The story is well written and filled with magic and danger. Help rescue the Red Riding Hood Sisters from an evil phantom and restore them to their Forest stronghold.

    I finished the Demo and can hardly wait to purchase and continue playing. The Demo is limited with some previews at the end. For me, the Demo ran almost exactly one hour. It might be shorter for faster players but I just could not stop enjoying the art. I don't know if the Demo runs to the end if it should take you longer than an hour but IMO, it should.

    I just went to BFG to purchase because I couldn't wait. I discovered the weekend special is already up or maybe it is an extra but, whatever, there is a Dark Parables sale thru the 23rd. Buy Red Riding Hood Sisters and get any or all of the other SE games in the series for only $2.99 each!

    I'm about 7 chapters in to Dark Parables 2, and really enjoying it. Should have a review tomorrow or Saturday :D

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    The Dark Parables series started with a game I never really liked, Curse of Briar Rose, a different but nothing special take on the story of Sleeping Beauty. It’s a fragmented hidden object game with only one or two puzzle types interspersed with the HOS. This game, the fourth of the series, is almost incomparably better in every way, most particularly in my favourite aspects of games.

    The stories over all four games have become increasingly complex and fanciful, and this story is a true gem of creativity and imagination. The original Red Riding Hood is saved and lives to establish a sisterhood of hunters vowed to protect their woods from all evil. This just as well, because the minute you, intrepid Detective, enter the forest you are attacked by a mist wolf and only survive with the help of a Red Riding Hood sister. The opening is quite dramatic and dark, actual killing of the mythical wolf occurs. Bear that in mind, because it will not be the last death you see in this game.

    The graphics are of course spectacular. That’s what sets Blue Tea Games apart, and every game they produce looks better than the last. There’s not much I can say about it, except gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Even the skeletons are gorgeous! Also, I noticed the music was particularly beautiful. I left the game on while I made a coffee just so I could listen to it.

    This series’ signature gameplay of finding and reconstructing sensationally beautiful items to use in puzzles and mini-games (of which there are still not very many really, but a bit more variety) continues to dominate the game. But the complexity of the adventure aspect of the game has significantly improved its general appeal – and increased the difficulty. Thank goodness we get a sort-of interactive map and a directional hint this time! It must be said, though, I still wandered about aimlessly often enough, unable to find what I needed to do next.

    Not everyone is going to want this kind of game, but for those who like being immersed in beautiful fantasies, and can cope with a darker element, this is for you.
     
    I recommend this game!
