    Queen's Tale looks gorgeous. I wonder who the developer is? I'm not looking for more hidden object games, but I'm always drawn to interesting locations in games...

    Looks like D&E is disappearing and fantasy is taking its place.

    Queen's Tales: The Beast and The Nightingale Collector's Edition <-(click) - [ERS Game Studios]

    I'd noticed the trend towards fantasy.  I'm hoping the D&E's will continue, though!

    That's ERS?? Wow. They cranked up the contrast a bit! I hope gameplay will be above ERS standard.

    I like fantasy too, but it would be bad to lose D&E. I'd like more variety, not replacing top genres.

    and what cute little furry friends you’ll meet along the way.

    I could just picture R-Mom groaning at this.      Belly laugh 

    I hope its as good as the first MOTW.      I personally do not mind furry helpers.  I think they
    are way better than people who tell me what to do,   stand around doing nothing and tell
    you to hurry up.
    Give me a smart furry helper that actually helps    Mouse with Cheese

    lol, luvtoread! I don't mind furry helpers retrieving things for me, otherwise, I'd have to find a ladder somewhere, but I don't want to dress them up nor buy things for them in a "store."
    I'd rather have no helpers...just me & the game.

    Jessica at the FB Blog wrote:Punished Talents: Seven Muses Collector’s Edition
    Life imitates art with deadly results in Punished Talents: Seven Muses!

Find clues and explore the gorgeous world of 1930s Boston as you set out to save your friends and prove Russell’s innocence in this thrilling whodunit!
