Two weeks after the events of Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison, Kiera Vale finds herself drawn back into a web of occult sciences, mysterious dark entities, and government secrets -- woven by the agency known as A.R.C.A.N.E.. Kiera is happy to receive the call, but soon after her arrival finds that things are not at all how she remembers them to be. What are these agents hiding, and why didn't they tell her the whole story? What is the true nature of the Blackwater "Witch"? Why is Dr. Thorn's young daughter locked up in a containment cell? From the top secret labs in the depths of A.R.C.A.N.E.'s headquarters to the distant spires of alien worlds, Ms. Vale will seek answers, solve cryptic puzzles, banish evil otherdimensional creatures, and perhaps even make a new friend over a game of Piggy Princess along the way, in Nightmare Adventures: The Turning Thorn.

Absolutely fantastic straight adventure 4 adventure game lovers... First of all, HOW did I miss this game when it came out!? THIS game is a true straight adventure as mentioned in my title... H0G addicts will probably NOT like this; those of you who enjoy the real challenge of difficult puzzles and storyline with a great plot and follow-through will love it. The dialogue throughout the game is more sophisticated and intense than most games on BFG and more like reading a really good novel than playing a casual game and that is precisely why I absolutely loved every moment of gameplay. Graphics were well done with commentary on environment [another feature I admire] which created a more intense gaming experience. I also enjoyed the music and sound. Again, not for everyone but those of you out there [like me] who love to be immersed in context versus fluff and nonsense will find The Turning Thorn to be an incredible and creepy world to lose yourself in for a while. I did play the first episode of this game, Nightmare Adventures, The Witch's Prison, yet you don't necessarily have to play it in order to pick up on this, the second in the series. Highly recommended and, wow, would be thrilled if another game by this developer would come our way [as if]. Happy gaming, have fun! August 11, 2014
Not your average HoS. This is a REAL challenge! I have played HoS games for a while now but this is the first time I've felt the need to write a review. I have previously played Nightmare Adventures - The Witch's Prison and I loved every second of it. I must admit to getting myself quite excited when I saw The Turning Thorn as I've become bored of your average HoS game. I was slightly put off by a less than 4 star rating but I crossed my fingers and bought it anyway. I was NOT disappointed at all. It's quite simply brilliant! If you're bored of constant HoS and being led by the hand every step of the way then this game is for you. If you're tired of pointing at a tree branch and getting a comment of "If I had a saw, I could cut that" then you need this game in your life. This game is a lot of puzzles and only one, yes ONE HoS. I suspect that was only put in there to mock other games. I must admit to having a chuckle to myself as I was doing that portion of the game. The puzzles are far from easy and you actually have to think for yourself through the whole game which I loved! If anyone out there is listening, more games like this please! July 17, 2013
Excellent game! I bought this game because ever since I played the first one (The Witch's Prison) I was searching all over the internet to see if there were any plans for a sequel. I was incredibly excited to see they had released one and once purchasing it, was not disappointed. This game has an excellent eerie atmosphere but at the same time makes you laugh and feel relaxed with the PC's constant hilarious commentary (make sure you click every object twice and combine every item together, there's almost a different reaction for each). The gameplay was wonderful, the puzzles were challenging and the story was clever. It would have been a complete five star sweep for me if it hadn't been for a couple glitches here and there that cut out sound, plus some objects were silent when they had made noise previously. Note that this did not take away from the game at all and it was still completely enjoyable. *SLIGHT SPOILER* The game ends in a cliff hanger so I am eagerly awaiting the third game in the series and will be buying it once it's released.

Another Nightmare Adventure to Love! This is the 2nd Nightmare Adventure game, and this one out does the first! First of all, the graphics and art have improved tremendously. The cut scenes are much improved and are more realistic with great voice overs. People should be aware that this is not a hidden object game though. If you are looking for HOG's then this isn't the game for you. But there are objects to find to aid in your quest/adventure and tricky puzzles to solve. My only criticism is that the puzzles need more directions or instructions. It isn't always obvious what needs to be done and the puzzle instructions offered are a little vague. But this is a minor issue. There are lots of scenes to explore and a plot with lots of twists and turns. I hope to see more game from the dev in the future. March 4, 2013
Thank you, Shawn and Tim! I have waited for this sequel ever since I finished The Witches Prison, which I totally loved, so my expectiations were very high. At first I experienced some difficulty getting the game to run as it should, but after some excellent service from CS and a little patience on my part, the fix came on Feb. 1 and after that the game purred like a pussycat. It ran fullscreen on my 24" monitor (running Windows 8), so I don't understand some fishies complaining it not running fullscreen. The game is a real challenge, something we don't see so much these days in casual gaming. The puzzles were fun, sometimes very hard, but I didn't skip one single puzzle. Hang in there, it can be done! As for the storyline: absolutely L O V E D it! Very nice twist at the end, although I kinda saw it coming .... All in all, a very long awaited and very succesful sequel. I'm just a tiny bit surprised it didn't come as a CE, but who's complaining, right? Thank you so much, Shawn and Tim, for your hard work to bring us this beautiful game. I'm just hoping it will not take as long for part 3. Which should be coming. Hence the twist, right? Please?

Great Game.. This game is awesome, i loved everything about this game the Graphics was clear and the sounds was a plus..Thx DEV's once again for all your time and hard work in this game and thx always BF.. January 26, 2013
Surprise surprise When I played this game, I noticed a leap in graphics quality! The game seemed to show a development that suggested a radical advancement in the industry as a whole. November 10, 2014
no hidden object scenes Can I just say that again, because no hidden object scenes seems rare these days. I like this and the one before it, The Witch's Prison, for the puzzles, the atmosphere, and the story. No objections to the music or the style, though it took a little time to get used to the backing out of scenes/popups at first. October 15, 2013
Quite the challenge I love games which feel kinda like IQ tests. A lot of figuring out the pattern, looking closely at everything in every room lest you miss something. I am really liking this game! September 29, 2013
A great sequel to The Witches' Prison I really enjoyed the first one and Im even more blown away with this one. I highly enjoyed the visual quality for this game. It definitely gave you a feeling of being in it. I really enjoyed the storyline and how much of a different direction it went than I expected. This series is by far the best SE games I've played.
