    Dark Hills of Cherai

    You can pick your difficulty level, and since I chose the guided mode, it could be pretty difficult to pass certain areas.

    First thoughts: Nice artwork, nice music, not very hard, lots of mini-puzzles!

    It soon became clear that items were getting more cleverly hidden, puzzles were getting harder and then a new element was added in: You play multiple characters. Like the more-recent Escape the Lost Kingdom, you go back and forth between characters, and sometimes one character will collect an item one of the others need, so you have to meet, exchange items, and go back to where you were before you continue. Not as complex as it sounds, they made it very intuitive.

    The story can be in-depth or light, depending on what you want. You get the basic story, and if you want more, there is a golden butterfly on certain scenes that will give you background information to make the game more immersive. Up to you if you want that or not.

    The music got creepy, and even disturbing in some scenes.

    Nice IHOG, have put it on my to-buy-someday list.
