A paranormal private investigator receives a frantic call from her reporter friend Helen, who pleas in a terrified voice for her to leave immediately for the coastal town of Serpent Creek. Urged by her friend's desperate request, the detective arrives at her destination only to find no trace of Helen. Strangely enough, no one from the sleepy town seems to remember seeing the blonde reporter. Weirder still, the town's streets are crawling with snakes, the citizens seem to be sleepwalking through life, and the ground shakes with violent tremors. Can the detective save her friend, reveal the corruption and hidden agendas of the town's citizens, and stop an evil plot to bring the Snake God back to our world?

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek 4.1 5 83 83
Very Entertaining A mystery/science fiction story that is quite different. The game is fast-paced and the graphics are quite clear and very well done. Nothing really hard. A walkthrough is not needed. Fast hint button. August 16, 2013
Fun Game I was hooked from the get go with this game. It's an easy HO game, but even though the story line is familiar, you know trying to find someone who is missing I liked the story line and the characters, especially the mayor who is really creepy. There are 3 modes of play. The HO scenes are far from being junky. It's easy to follow, almost like common sense game where you know what to do next. I think this would be a good game for beginners, but as I said there are three modes of play. If you like HO games and are looking for a relaxing type, this would be it. Good playing,fishies!

Lots of snakes but funny! Although the game is full of snakes, the storyline and the dialogs are funny. The graphics are a bit cartoonish but clear, and the voices are very accurate... There are 3 game modes; I played in Expert mode and there were no sparkles. There are not many HOS but they are not cluttered and the objects are easy to find. The mini-games are also very easy. There is a journal and a map, allowing you to jump to a location. The game is very logical, so you always know where to use a clue you found. In some scenes you have to find clues for what happened; also an original idea. The game is rather short; without skipping it took me a bit more than 2 hours. So, ok it's very easy but I had fun and hope there will be a sequel. I recommend it to all those who do not fear snakes. August 9, 2013
The storyline is all This developer knows how to tell a story. It is a story with mysteries, twists,and turns. You are given enough information in the voiceovers and comments so that you barely need to hit the hint button. The HOS are easy to solve, everything is kept apart, and well defined. The minigames are easy enough. Evidently the developers know that when the story is gripping enough if the puzzles do not solve easily, the gamers get cranky. The story is all, and the games and HOS are to move it along, and do not become a hindrance. (of course, if you are allergic to snakes, do not buy this game). September 18, 2013
A Gripping Game! This was a gripping game that, with intra-personal dialogue added, could easily become another Nancy Drew-type series! I congratulate Artifex Mundi for a wonderful effort that brought us clear HOS, good graphics and sound and a decent story. If I were the developer, I would get rid of the HINT BUTTON and make the player think everything out for himself. And, if the player REALLY GETS STUCK, then he can consult a walkthrough. The same thing would apply to the many very interesting puzzles that appeared throughout the game. KILL the SKIP BUTTON and make the player work out everything on his/her own. I think that would really make things much more interesting! Again, congratulations on bringing us a very good game! September 9, 2013
Everyone is involved And that made me want to keep going until the end! Great for a non-CE. Ending hinted there'd be a sequel, but I'm not sure how the developer would do it. August 25, 2013
I, Loved it! This was a very fun game. I kinda new who was at the bottom of this all. But I loved how the clues went over what happened. Very exciting game. August 17, 2013
A Nice Enjoyable Game ... Great Graphics, Sounds, Effects, Story, Video & Voice Bits ... A Great All Round Bit Of Entertainment ... An SE Worthy Of CE Money ? I Got My Game On A Deal So Only A Small Price Paid For A Very Good Game ... August 11, 2013
Get this game ! Love it!! HOS aren't too hard. Graphics are clear. Not so much back-tracking as many other games. My favorite hidden object game so far. August 7, 2013
Very Good Game I really did like this game. The storyline was easy to follow too. I am glad I did buy this game as it was easy to play & it did last a long time. So if you have not tried out to play this game yet, please do so. You will not regret it at all. Even the music was very nice to listen too. I think that they will make another one of these games in the part 2 version as the way the game ended. I hope the publishers do make another one & if so I can't wait to play that game. So have fun everyone of playing this game, I sure did, August 5, 2013
