Scarlett Frost, specialist in the dark arts, has been summoned to a luxurious and remote theatre in the snowy Italian Alps. Could it be that the infamous and diabolical Hapsburg Cube has been found and purchased by the sinister theatre proprietor, Dr. Corvis? The cube is said to imprison a powerful and ancient Babylonian demon that would wreak hellish destruction if the cube should break. In a moment of desperate confusion the cube breaks and the demon bursts forth into the souls of the Dr. Corvis and his young Daughter Bethany. The ancient theatre in the lonely winter mountains becomes an arena of spiritual war, between the darkest forces of the underworld and the cunning and esoteric mind of Scarlett Frost. But Scarlett soon finds out that the only way to fight a demon this powerful is to become possessed by one herself. Only then can she acquire a ticket to the Theatre of the Absurd.

I ENJOYED THIS ONE! i tried this game a LONG time ago ... there must have been some reason that it didn't work for me; could be the demons!... but over this weekend i have been re-trying several older games ... i found it to be INTRIGUING with smooth gameplay ... a lot of HOs but not TOO many ... i enjoyed the puzzles which were mostly putting elements together especially the 3d items ... based on the full game but not the bonus, i think it's worth playing ... of course i would like to see a newer version with more bells and whistles ...

Fun Game, Disappointing Bonus Chapter The main game was fun. It does have demonic possession as central theme, which might disturb some players. I enjoyed the game, the overall eerie feel, music and sound effects were very good. The voice overs were well done. The cut scenes were some what cartoonish, but not too annoying. You play as "Mrs. Frost" and have to save a young girl from the demon. You collect several powers along the way as you achieve certain objectives. The hint button is a hand which also hold the powers you acquire. I really enjoyed this approach. The mini games were not overly difficult, but were fun. The diary held the task list and clues you pick up along the way. The HOS were clutter and dark for the most part. Some items were difficult to find, which I enjoy. There is an integrated SG; however, you won't need it much (if at all). The music and sound effects help create tension during the game and the developers did a good job with both. The disappointing part of this CE was the bonus chapter. It was short and not worth the money. It added some to the story, but I had already figured out the twist prior to the end of the main game. I recommend this game in the SE version, not the CE version. July 4, 2013
Theatrical? Yes. Demonic? Ha, ha! The visuals, cut-scenes made the game very unique IMO. Some of the artwork is very reminiscent of the Drawn series. I agree - the flickering light in the HOS is irritating. Overall, the game kept my interest going. SE - a definite buy (wonder why it's not released even as of today?). I almost didn't try it given the reviews about it being demonic. In comparison to some violent movies (which I think are more demonic in the ways they affect young minds), this 'scary' demon just has teeth that desperately need to see a dentist. The dentist may faint but that's about as scary as it gets. ;) May 31, 2012
Played demo and found it confusing I loved the graphics and the sound, but it was pretty confusing to me what I was supposed to be doing without using the strategy guide which ate up so much time. I thought the concept was interesting but if they tweak it abit to be easier to play I would have give it more stars. May 3, 2012
I have to have this game... Based on the demo, as the game started, I thought this isn't going to interest me. I was wrong. Just got paid today & just purchased the game. Can't wait to continue playing it. I have other games I'm interested in purchasing, but this was at the top of my list. May 2, 2012
Great game but..... This game definately has the scary factor down, not so much that you'll have nightmares but great scary fun. I only rated it a 4 star game because of the length of the game. It should never have been released as a Collectors Edition although it does have bonus content for finishing the main game. I could finish this game very quickly so I will wait for the regular version. Even then I won't use a game club credit but a bonus game credit. I think the developers did a wonderful job but either ran out of storyline or ideas. That is very sad as this could have been the "Game of The Year" in my opinon. May 1, 2012
attack of the cut scenes, ahhhgg I like this game, it moves nicely from one scene to the next. The light glowing in the HOS was a bit too stronge for me. I found myself blinking a lot. There was one or two spots where I found myself scratching my head. I'm ashamed to say I used the guide, once, to get me out. Running out of time LOL. I hated the cut scenes, sometimes you would have one only lasting 30 seconds. I mean, what the(insert word of choice) is that all about. The part I hated the most was doing the plumbing scene. Every time I made a move the stupid voice would make a comment. Aaaaggghhh, I had the sound down low but it still irritated me. April 29, 2012
Good Fun Game I really enjoyed this game although I don't think that anything would be lost by playing the non CE version. I felt that the bonus content left me feeling a bit "short changed". June 3, 2012
whoa... absurd? nahh...lots of fun tho! "scary", weird and just really kinda cool! go play..this one is full of surprises...nice. May 26, 2012
Game was good Played the demo and liked the game, although there were quite a few demonic visuals. The hint system with the arm was quite unusual. The hidden object scenes and puzzles encountered in the demo were fairly easy. There were lots of inventory items to use and different powers could be obtained for the "arm" Would like to see how the story ends, but based on the other reviews on the length of the game and what is included in the extras, we will be waiting for the single edition to be released.
