European Mystery: Scent of Desire
Best Game I have played, so far, this year !
I loved this game - I loved the Alchemy; an unusual twist to this game is making your own scent-potions, gathered from various "fragrant" locations. These are then used in various other locations, to further your investigation into what now appear to be serial killings of young women in Paris, and all during the time of a cholera epidemic as well! Who can you trust? Who is playing a deceitful cat & mouse game with you? Will you fall victim to the odious scent-bombs, flung at you from the hand of a cloaked & masked stalker? And WHY; why are these women being killed? It's up to you, the detective, to figure it all out and stop him or her, before more young women become the next victims of this lunatic!
It reminds me of playing in a rousing good Agatha Christie murder-mystery, without it's being bloody & gory (which I dislike), as so many games these days seem to be.
Kudos to the devs; this was an excellent game, with beautiful music, lovely, detailed graphics/art, wonderful animation in the cut-scenes, and an intriguing story-line. I bought the SE, after the demo was over, and liked it so much that now I want to get the CE. I also like to take my time playing, enjoying the story and absorbing all the beautiful details of the game, so this took me about 8 hours, played over two days. This is my favorite game this year (so far)! Enjoy!

wonderful game. shouldn't be missed
hint/skip charge fast. played casual/no sound. interactive map. journal. hints do hand-hold you, but the map will let you jump if you remember where to go. it also shows where you have things to do. you are tracking down a madman that is killing young women. you use scents that you have to mix to get through things. they are not hard. there will be a sequel i am sure since it was started at the end of this one.

This is one of the better games that I have played in a while. The scent tracker is unique and adds another level of interest to the game. Some of the puzzles are quite easy whereas others are challenging and take some time to figure out. The map is helpful and can be used to find areas that have something that can be done. The black screen mentioned in many of the posts can be a little annoying but you get used to it. I will say that moving objects into regions that they are needed can be a little challenging. If the object is not perfectly aligned, it goes back to your inventory. The top of the cursor needs to be pointing to where you think the objects connect.

I decided to wait for the SE and it was fab! Good story, graphics and puzzles that were challenging although not that different from the norm.
Lots of different locations but not confusing as there is a jump map.
All in all, had a thoroughly enjoyable time!
