    Where did you find this link from RMom? I have never seen such a thing. Do they do that with many/all new games??

    Have I been missing out on a whole new avenue for having my say? Overreaction

    All Is Certainly Not Clear
     

    Sunny Sunny Sunny

    BASED ON DEMO

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    The intro was okay, no more. Once again we are seeing a low budget  stand-alone standard edition game where you cannot expect to see all the fancy stuff. This game deserves a chance, because it is well made and intriguing.

    SIGHTS & SOUNDS

    While not quite what I call “20th Century Dumpster”, the locations are abandoned, rusty, dirty and dark. Everything. The graphics are good, nicely crisp and clear. The HOs are easier to see than a lot of fancier games. No voiceovers, but the music is pleasant and the ambient sounds are creepy ‘night in the forest’ sounds creating an eerie atmosphere . Which is further enhanced by the total lack of people or animals to interact with. This is one game where you really feel alone.

    WARNING: If you don’t like graphic depictions of the uglier side of life, perhaps you should just skip this one altogether, while those who do like it can expect some ugly stuff but nothing in the league of “Escape From Ravenhearst”.

    WHAT’S HAPPENING

    That is still very much a mystery even an hour into the game. Someone is out to get you, and after the accident they caused, you wake up and your daughter is gone. In a strange abandoned house, you try to put the pieces together and sort out the connections between you and this place. Someone wanted you here, but who? And why?

    MAKING PROGRESS

    Plenty of HOPs in this one, but not so many as to become boring, I think, and are only visited once, so far anyway. The puzzles I remember are easy, and with only 2 levels of difficulty, this game may also not be of interest to expert players either. It has a map which shows roughly 40 locations, tells you where you are and where there are immediate actions to take, but it is not a jump map. There is a directional hint. Which I used way too much.

    There's a neat little magic box you get to keep near the inventory bar that produces needed items. To get them you must first find an object that fits in one of the dioramas. It flashes when you have something to use there.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS

    The game’s adventure aspect is tough, and having to use the hint feature to get around is not my idea of a good time, so it seems this one is not for me. But I will give it another go when it comes to Big Fish.

    LOL, Justy!
    I just googled the title to see what came up (actually wanted to read more about the game) and to my surprise, the first hit was that BF link. I don't know if it comes up for every demo but - hey, looks like we don't always have to wait for a "special invitation". Snicker

    Yeah, although I replayed some of it, because I really don't think I gave the game enough credit last night. And when I stopped for a while and exited, it came up saying the survey was now closed. Of course, I could still go back in to continue playing till the cows came home, but we don't get to tell them what we think

    I like the "Trap for Moths" part of the title; it sounds like a lower level "Machine for Pigs" and therefore makes me think of horror.  c\'mere  LOL
