    BASED ON DEMO  

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    Good quality production, was my first thought. Nice crisp and realistic graphics, good voice, different take on the paranormal theme. You are the newest member of an investigative agency dealing with supernatural phenomena. With the others with you, you are off on your first investigation in Poison Spring Park, where a museum curator has asked for your team’s help.

    The story is nicely developed, but for me, dealing with so many fellow investigators became a bit irritating. It slowed down the action and distracted me. If you know the show, I'm guessing that won't be a problem.

    There is some truly excellent work done with transparencies and stills of the battle (and massacre) that occurred in the area during the Civil War.

    GAMEPLAY

    Most of your energies so far have been spent on getting to know the job and practical tasks - in other words, adventure. The HOPs are an interactive list with more action than most and with some items needed to be found to uncover others. They are a little more challenging than most. The puzzles are medium to easy so far, and the puzzles and HOPs are split fairly close to evenly. I used skip once where I just didn’t have the patience (it’s been a tough day).

    We get a EMF (Electromagnetic Field Detector), which allows us to see the invisible siguls that indicate possessions of people and things.

    There is a good interactive map (not a transporter), but it can only be accessed from the journal. Hint is directional. I know there's no walkthrough yet, but I think most people will be able to play without it.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS

    A fine supernatural whodunit and playing with a team certainly makes it different.

    I Recommend This Game

    Thanks for the heads-up!  No official description of the game at Legacy, either.  Speaking of which, Legacy will be the only site to offer the CE of this game, and it will probably (maybe?) be available there tomorrow.  We'll see~  Either way, we'll get a game description up as soon as someone at BF corrects their mistake Silly face
