Continue the search, solve the mystery!
After a time skip after the last game, you end up in the middle of another mystery! At the center of this is a suspicious man, a missing family, and the mysterious man that was captured and locked away.
From the various locations, the great voice acting, the story/history you learn, and more, this game continues to show that the Enigmatis series is a wonderful one. I would recommend this game to everyone! :)

A Great Game!
This game is similar to the Maple Creek game, first in the series. You have the same detective trying to solve the case. There is a similar "solve the case" board that you fill out as the game goes on. The victims in this story are very appealing, which makes it very interesting to try to save them. The action moves from an old campground to a huge mansion, all of which are the hunting grounds of one of the villains that the detective is trying to find. One thing I really like about this game is that there isn't a huge amount of backtracking involved. There definitely is some, but most of the objects you find, either lying around or in hidden object scenes, you use nearby. The story is very logically laid out and is easy to follow. It has its very creepy side when you learn the background of the story, and the solution to the mystery is kind of creepy, so if that offends you, it's good to know ahead of time. But most of the time you're just trying to move to the next stage and thinking about what to do next. I enjoyed playing the game very much and highly recommend it.

Amazing Game! Would give it more than 5 Stars if I could!
Wow, this game was amazing--I mean literally, this game amazed me. This was a very, very long game and the second half was an incredible quick moving adventure. The entire game was smart, really creepy (comes with goose bumps), fun and the story was completely engaging and totally sucked me in. The puzzles were easy, which was fine with me, and some of them were quite unique. There were a few HOs, but not too many and they fit into the story. The game had great scenery and I just realized that I hadn't turned off the music--a first for me which means it must have been appropriate, of good quality, and added to the ambiance. The sound effects were definitely well done, too. Everything about this game was excellent, including the movie scenes which were fun to watch, with good dialog, animation, and voices. This was another 5 Star game from the Artifex Mundi: Premium Adventure Collection. This developer makes some of the finest games...thank you!

Hats off to Artifex Mundi!
Game played well, storyline flowed smoothly and the ending was very interesting. This game smacks of another sequel, which I am VERRRRY hoping comes soon.

PLAYS ALMOST LIKE A CE AND CREEPY!
Review based on completed game in casual mode, the only way I play. :-D
Animation/VOS - Excellent! Even vo for player!
IHOS - Clear to dark in some scenes and the usual fare of small to larger objects. There are lists, silhouettes and fragments. Certainly much more interaction than other games I've seen. Instead of the IHOS, you have the choice of playing a pair matching game.
Hint - Fast charge, gives directions and clues.
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Unique and challenging. Did manage to solve a few. Fast skip.
Inventory - Locks in place. Items used quickly in other areas.
Misclick Penalty - None
Journal - Contains objectives.
Evidence Board - Prisoner assists with story and items collected. Could have done without the "AAH!" every time a piece of evidence is placed on the board in the correct area.
Map - Does transport but I prefer the hint button.
Enjoyed the mystery and creepiness of it all. As the detective, there will be a lot of traveling from scene to scene. A good pair of running shoes is needed. If you choose to use the map, maybe the shoes won't be necessary.
Loved this game and I hope you will also. Give it a try and happy gaming.

GORGEOUS ADVENTURE DRAMA
This is the one of the most exciting and adventurous games there is!
Gorgeous illustrations, the story line is excellent and the people in it seem so real. It is truly like you are involved in the story. (like you're really there)
I highly recommend this so very much. The little games are too easy, but, I didn't care because I just couldn't put this game down. I finished in one sitting. You just can't wait to see what happens next.

One of the best storylines I've seen in a long time
The best thing about this game was the well thought out storyline with a coherent ending. Well done.
