Charlaine Harris: Dying for Daylight
good premise, but...
Interesting premise to find a potion to allow vampires in the sun. Fair amount of travel back and forth, but you can jump locations. Some interesting characters. Real problem? It leaves you hanging for part 2 of the story. Frustrating for that.

When is the next one coming out??
Dahlia is a great character and I found that the game was really fun to play! I've read all the Sookie Stackhouse books that the vampire world in the game is loosely based on, so it was a real treat to play.
The only gripe I have is that the game ended abruptly and we have NO idea when the second half is coming out, Anyone heard when the next game might be out??

This was a real entertaining game. It keeped me engrossed for hours. The ending was a little confusing making you think there were more chapters but the game ended just leaving you wondering if you missed something. I hope there is a sequal.

Dying for Daylight: Dying for More...
Played the demo and really wanted to continue, as we loved the story, voice acting and humor. Finally bought it at the BF $2.99 intro price, but I must say, I would have been disappointed if we paid full price, due to short length of game (2.5 hours). We do play rather fast, but a short game time and no solid ending left us wanting MUCH more.
Stylistically, a great looking game with great characters. The map feature that lets you jump to previously visited areas is nice and avoids too much running back and forth.
Puzzles are not all that difficult for seasoned players. Hidden object scenes are well done and, though dark (in keeping with the motif), they're not too hard on the eyes.
I know everyone raves about this game, but it will likely leave the hardcore, late-night, long session gamer wanting a lot more. I'd recommend the game ONLY on the basis of it's high production value, great story and colorful characters, but NOT on the full experience due to short gameplay and an unresolved ending that isn't even a cliffhanger.

Sassy but unsatisfied
I absolutely loved the main character--she was sassy and had a lot of attitude. The game play was fun, the story line engaging.
That being said, the ending was a real disappointment. I wish I'd known it was only half a game before I bought it. It's been a year now since I purchased Dying for Daylight and there is still no 2nd part.
If you don't mind NOT being able to finish the story line up, the game play is fun and engaging. Not having a conclusion to the story line was a huge disappointment for me.
1 star taken for being 'to be continued' and 1 star taken for NOT having a 2nd game a year later.

Not my cup of tea
Based on all of the great reviews I downloaded the trial. I was turned off by the whack a mole style of video game in the hidden object scene. The main character commented on everything which I found annoying.
Overall I just did not like it, did not buy it, and deleted it. I prefer the Dark Parables Series. But give it a try you might like it.

Great Quality Game
If you buy this game, you will not be able to finish it until the next installment releases. I was very disappointed after I got to the end and it said "to be continued".... however, besides that, this game was fantastic and I truly enjoyed it. I am waiting for part 2 to be released. I will buy it.

Fun but too short
I would have appreciated knowing that this was only Part 1, otherwise I probably would not have purchased. I did enjoy the game play and it was challenging at times but TOO SHORT.
Bigfish please let us know in the introductions if this is not a full game.

A Chance For Fun
I thought the graphics on this game were good, and I followed along okay for a few worlds. Some of the hints that I received when I clicked the "hint" button were very helpful, until I reached a certain part of the game and then it stopped really giving hints and started just listing the things I had yet to do on the level. That would be fine, if I asked for those, but I listed for hints. For example I had all the items for a task, tried to do the task and after fighting with it because it would not accept the item that it had requested, I gave up and went away from that area onto another area. Some of the things were not very well laid out, at least for me to follow. Now, there were some really interesting and fun things in the game, one was some of the remarks the main character makes are rather humorous. So, I am going to recommend this game, based on the remarks, graphics and the possibility of you having more luck than I, however, just beware there are a few hang ups...or at least there were for me.

Dahlia is a very nice person to play with ;-) but the games was to short. After a few hours (3?) I was finished.
