A Victorian masterpiece!
I am in love with both of the Brink of Consciousness games...but this game had particularly stunning visuals that made this a 5 star game for me.
One of the highlights of this series is that fact that you, playing Owen Wright, talk with your detective friend and any other person you meet in the game through automatic voiceover responses. When you are moving through scenes and an anonymous voice begins to shout threats at you, you yell back at him to show himself, scoundrel! I absolutely fell in love with my character talking because I find myself thinking "What?" or "Really?" when a character is talking to me in games, so having my actual character say "What?" and giving input was just awesome. Owen Wright, you are a fearless and fun Englishman to play!
The graphics were gorgeous, one ill-fated woman in particular was so well drawn I took a screen shot of the image to save. There were quite a handful of standard HOs but the game made up for that in great dialog, a wealth of people to meet and interact with, good length, lots of area to explore, and a well done spooky Victorian era atmosphere.
I highly recommend this game for people who want a good Sherlock Holmes-esque murder mystery to solve, for people who want a clear crisp game with a well-balanced mixture of HO/adventure, and for anyone who is tired of playing the overwhelmed heroine and wants to be a well respected, stubborn Victorian gentleman for a change!

It's like being in a film!
Very good Hidden Object game, with many chapters and many different characters that have a story to tell. Games have a good grade of difficulty, which makes it more fun and not too easy. Good graphics and pleasent music. Controls are easy...overall excellent game, I definetely recommend it!

Truly an incredible game. Loved the graphics, music and the voice overs were done very well.
The story was captivating and held your interest. You really don't know what is going to happen!
There was plenty of movement and I really liked that areas were closed once you moved on in the game. You knew what areas you were to investigate.
No complaints on this one.
I highly recommend this game.

One of my favorite games! All is very good: graphic, music, voice over (excellent!) and storyline (unusual, thrilling and logic).
A pleasure to play!

A very English game
Being Engish, i do not often find a very British game to play, so i love this one.
It's very quaint, which is refreshing, and not a technical master peice, but this adds to it's allure, lol.
i wont go into the games details, others have covered this, suffice to say, its a lovely game, and as ive just finnished the trial mode i'll get it and finish this game.
recommend this game 100% for its quaintness, and i must check out the others of like kind, as theres a special offer of buy one get one free, yippee

EXCELLENT GAME!!!! One of the few games that within 20 minutes of playing the game....I wanted to go and buy it. This game has excitement, fun & interresting story line. I would not steer you wrong...I play A LOT of HOG & this is one of the best I played from BF. It has inventory that you will use pretty quickly (NOT ONE OF THOSE GAMES YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL BACK 15 ROOM/AREAS B4 YOU CAN USE AN ITEM FROM YOUR INVENTORY-HATE THAT) But as you can tell, this is one of the better Hidden Object/Detective games I have played....At least try it, download the free hours play and see if w/in 15-20 minutes if you don't want to know who the killer is....I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AS MUCH AS I DO. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

excellent in all aspects
I played several games from Magicindie, this one is the best. An excellent storyline (english detective), superb HD graphics, an optimal level of challenge, resulting in an exceptional overall fun factor effect.
