    Mudrock has moved on to bigger, better things, so now we have predictions from Community Manager, Hondo.

    For the week of August 13th
    , Hondo is predicting the CE that wasn't released last week, Witch Hunters: Stolen Beauty. It's by the same people who made the Haunted Manor series, so here's hoping for something great! Also predicted is a new Shop-n-Spree game, and the SE of Echoes of the Past: The Revenge of the Witch.

    Per Hondo, for the week of October 15, 2012

    PC & Mac fans, be on the lookout for the third installment in the Shadow Wolf Mysteries series later this week. In Shadow Wolf Mysteries: Cursed Wedding Collector's Edition, you'll travel to Paris to save your friend and her fiance from an ancient werewolf who's hungry for revenge. (But revenge from what? )

    You'll also want to keep an eye out for the standard versions of The Great Unknown: Houdini's Castle and Margrave: The Blacksmith's Daughter. Both of these were met with great reviews when they were released as Collector's Editions, so be sure to check them out if you haven't
    already!

    Looks like this week we should expect to see Phantasmat: Crucible Peak Collector's Edition, World Mosaics 6, AND Golden Trails 3: The Guardian's Creed!

    Interesting. I do so wish that Phantasmat 2 had been done by Codeminion (the original's developer), though! *pout*

    For the week of January 14, 2013:

    This is setting up to be a great week for dual releases. In fact, all four games I'm about to mention are due to be released for both PC &
    Mac this week. Let's start with the Collector's Editions.

    In Dark Canvas: Brush with Death Collector's Edition, you'll sent to a remote Italian island, where you must uncover the secrets of a mysterious artist in order to save your missing daughter.

    Then, in Death Pages: Ghost Library Collector's Edition, you'll be tasked with rescuing a group of teenagers whose souls have been sent into the book, Romeo and Juliet. That one doesn't end well, so hopefully you can get to them before the tragic ending.

    Also due out this week is the standard version of Reality Show: Fatal Shot, as well as The Mirror Mysteries: Forgotten Kingdoms. It's been a few years since the original Mirror Mysteries came out, so hopefully the sequel will be worth the wait for MM fans!

    Post by genkicoll on Mon Feb 11, 2013 6:13 pm

    Oh, it looks like it's going to be a good week!

    PC/Mac

    In Enchantia: Wrath of the Phoenix Queen Collector's Edition, you'll encounter more than 20 exciting characters in your quest to save the magical fantasy world of Enchantia from the evil Phoenix Queen.

    In Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death Collector's Edition (PC only), you'll be up against a supernatural force that feeds on human suffering. In this thrilling adventure, it'll be up to you to reverse tragic deaths, repair broken friendships, and even reunite a married couple who have been separated for thousands of years!

    Our Mac fans will also get a couple of games they've been waiting for this week.

    In Building the Great Wall of China, you'll journey across China to build the greatest structure known to mankind in this addictive Time Management game. Build the wall, save the empire, and get the girl.

    In Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cave, you'll take on the role of author Jessica Fletcher as you solve 3 separate murder mysteries. Looks like most of the PC reviewers agree that this sequel was well worth the wait.

    Sacra Terra is probably my favorite CE, and we get a nice variety of game types this week, to boot (well, at least the Mac players will). Nice!

    Per Hondo, for the week of March 11, 2013
    European Mystery: Scent of Desire Collector's Edition - Just as you thought you were about to enjoy an early retirement in the French countryside, you get a call from Paris. Young women are disappearing, and the authorities are baffled. Stay on the scent of the murderer in this exciting HOPA.

    The Secret Order: Masked Intent Collector's Edition - One of the members of the Order has been murdered, and it looks like it was an inside job. Unmask the traitor before he destroys the entire Order. There's even a bit of time travel involved in this thrilling HOPA!

    Dreamscapes: The Sandman (PC only) - Laura's dreamcatcher has disappeared, sending her into an endless nightmare. Journey through Laura's ghastly dreams, help her fight her fears, and collect all the pieces of the lost dreamcatcher to help her wake up in the real world in this breathtaking Adventure game.

    Farm Fables - Help Leia keep and develop her farm by growing crops and caring for animals in this beautiful Time Management game. Now available for Mac!

    The links above aren't from Hondo -- I added them in so you could take a peek at the screens. Always fun

    Looks like BF is going to get the SE only on Dreamscapes! Best hurry and get it at Playrix before the $4.99 sale is over!

    I can't believe they didn't think it was worthy of CE status! I wonder if will include the Beholders? They are too good to miss!

    I don't think that it's because BF didn't see it as "CE-worthy" (although that's what THEY say it is.) Fact is that they almost never release Playrix games as CE's. There have been very few exceptions. As a matter of fact, the only game of theirs that I can think of that was released as a CE was Fishdom 3, and I'm betting that's only because it's such a hugely popular series. My guess is that Big Fish simply doesn't want to pay Playrix the percentage they are asking for on the CE's.

    For the week of March 18, 2013

    Are you ready to go back to Joyville? This time, the town's beloved puppet master has mysteriously disappeared, and Felicia - his 12 year old daughter - needs your help finding him in PuppetShow: Destiny Undone Collector's Edition.

    Twenty years ago, you were left on the doorstep of a kind family as your parents fled for their lives. Now you have a clue to their whereabouts – an uncharted island where a strange meteorite landed centuries ago. Discover the secrets of your family’s past in Phenomenon: Meteorite Collector's Edition (PC).

    Looking for a game that has nothing but hidden object scenes? Choose between Classic or Silhouette mode, then search for thousands of items in the 80 different scenes you'll find in 100% Hidden Objects (PC).

    Coming soon to Mac - Charles Dexter Ward has summoned you to the town of Pawtuxet, where a renegade spirit is using human souls to become immortal. Solve the mysteries of the Ward family and banish the evil spirit in Dark Mysteries: The Soul Keeper Collector's Edition. (Among the extras that come with this CE is a downloadable ebook of the original H.P. Lovecraft novel this game is based on!)
