Dangerous Games An ole college buddy and his wife invite you to Brownville with the promise of a job. Things aren't right and almost immediately you are warned to leave by a card wielding woman who warns that Brownville isn't safe! You need a job so you meet up at a house of cards and when the boss asks you to play a game of cards, how can you refuse? I'm going to give this game kudos for out of the box thinking. Magic surrounds those cards and you soon realize the stakes are high, you and your friends must all survive in a strange, unfamiliar world, or you will all die! You need to find magic cards and activate them in order to progress to the next deadly level and hopefully win the game. You will find and name a cute purple rabbit/puppy that can help you with some out of reach inventory items. The HOS are very interactive list finds with most of the interactions requiring more than one step. Most of the mini games are new, the one I liked the best was using directional arrows to guide a frog into lily pads with quite a difficult pattern, this one took me a few tries. Again, kudos to the developer, enjoy!Show Less January 31, 2014
You're Destined for Adventure!! When I bought the CE I was trying to fill out my punch card and earn a free game. (Smart, hunh? Spend more money to make less...oh well). Then I thought, "serves me right." The reviews that I read were of a pretty mundane game that wasn't particularly challenging; a game that seemed dated; a game that's OK for a beginner but not a pro (like me, harrumph!!). These reviews were wrong, wronger, wrongest. This is a very complex game that deserves your attention. And, by the way, I just read the wrong reviews. Most of them were great reviews by those whom you trust the most. You know the basic beginnings of the story. You're called into Brownville, Louisiana by a friend who can broker a deal to get you the one thing you most need: a job. You meet the owner of the company, the very strange Simon. Before you "talk shop" Simon invites you to relax by playing cards. OK. Unusual, for sure. Next step: out of reality and into surrealism. The card game you're playing turns out to be less fun than fright. You become a prisoner of the game, as the title says and only victory at the end will set you free. I'll say this, you're gonna think twice the next time a friend offers to set you up with a job. FUN FACTOR: It's a different kind of fun, but yeah, absolutely. This is a high-stakes game you're playing so if you can get into the mind of the protagonist, fun wouldn't be the right word. Whatever you want to call it, this game is nothing if not engaging. VISUAL/SOUND QUALITY: Visuals: I've seen this referred to as a negative. The word may be right. The intent to criticize is not. The "drawings" are simply, yet very clearly executed and with a great deal of definition. It's also a very bright and colorful game to look at. This stands in relief from the dire nature of the goings on. The "people" do look more real that the background and non-live objects (think the Warren Beatty/Madonna in Dick Tracy). It's splendid artisanship. This game reminds of Dick Tracy; but also of Logan's Run with a bit of Midnight in Garden of Good and Evil thrown in for dark kicks, (visually). It's a very complex story and the visuals do an extraordinary job of capturing the complexity. Sounds: Exceptional. I think the varieties of music chosen are perfect for the urgency and danger you're a part of. And, at the right time the music is pretty light-hearted. You'll appreciate a break from the heart-pounding intense stuff. Sights and Sounds come together in these games in Lip Synching. This is the one part of the game that's really poor. There is a stab at lip synching but it's just mouths moving at 50 MPH. Would have been better skipped. Would have been best done well, but it wasn't. Don't let that ruin it for you. LEVEL OF CHALLENGE: The HOGs are crowded but the items are very distinct. So, they're like piles but not of junk. Make any sense? They aren't overly challenging but not nursery school stuff either. The items are well-described. The MINI-GAMES: There's some pretty simple stuff, like directing streams of water to the right cup. Believe me, it get more interesting than that. I've always liked the game where you move separately placed items into different slot while both objects make the same moves. You use bumpers and walls to achieve your goal. You'll find this in Prisoners, but even much more than this. I was pleased with the assortment of newish and old, easy and challenging and you will be as well. At the same time as these mini-game and HOGs, there's a not-so mini game going on the whole time. You're playing a game within a game. And in true Bayou form, it seems there's more than a little witchcraft going on around you. Tarot card light? The cards help you achieve your purpose which is to keep ascending levels until, hopefully, you're free of the game. You have a fuzzy friend who helps you along the way also. Not nearly the Charisma of Elf:) Now that the SE is being offered, I guess the only question is if you need the CE (and the higher price) or if the SE will do. If you get the CE you're getting the normal assortment of items. a. The "who cares" collection of Wall papers, Concept Art, Re-playable Music, etc. b. Achievements. Not many, one noteworthy: Use no hints the whole game. c. Collectibles: The 30 collectibles are are actually used later in the "hidden" game offered as a CE extra...a not-complicated jigsaw puzzle. d. A bonus Chapter. e. A strategy guide. I think there's one more thing I'm forgetting. Sorry. What i didn't forget is this: It is not necessary to spend the extra money to get the full experience. The real meat of the game is in the regular game not in the bonus stuff. I think the value proposition rests with the SE this time. A post script: I really want to tell you about the end of the game but I can't. I strongly recommend this game. I haven't played anything like it before. It doesn't remind me of anything else. I didn't get an accurate feel of the game from the one-hour trial but I am a slow poke player and extra slow at the beginning. For instance, I always do the tutorial because I don't want to miss learning about special features. (Now that I think of it, I could skip the tutorial in the trial period, create a new profile and do the tutorial the second time around so I can maximize my game play in the trial. Wow. Thanks for the suggestion!!!) :) Seriously, I think you'll like this game a lot. January 31, 2014
Fun and Entertaining Purchased after 60 minute trial. Even though I typically avoid games that accumulate inventory and have you relentlessly wandering around, this game has a wonderful refreshing balance and mix of hidden object scenes, mini-puzzles, entertaining animations (ie. magic animal). The inventory was fine in this game because the map and color guides and mix of HOS and puzzles with placing inventory make it fun and entertaining. I personally play the games for that purpose; if they get too brain damaging, not fun for me, gets old. I don't scrutinize story lines, not the reason I play, so story line here fun and a little different. Waited a long time for something like this to come along again. Pay attention to clues, shouldn't get stuck, plenty of help if needed, great game so far. February 1, 2014
Trapped!!!! This is such an extraordinary game. A friend invited you to work - times have been tough - you travel, meet your friend and are invited to a friendly {!} game of card by your future boss. What a pleasant start. And then UPS - you find yourself trapped in the game. Just like that and no escape. If you die, all your friends playing this game will die - and visa versa. An excellent and different adventure game with enough tension to keep you very interested indeed. Dare to start this game - you will not be disappointed. January 31, 2014
A dangerous adventure When I played the trial for the CE I didn't read any of the reviews I loved the game but decided to wait for the SE and use the wait to catch up on all the games I had yet to play while I was working away from a computer. Coming back to the game I realise just how good it is .I have also read the reviews, Were we really playing the same game? Lured to the town of Brownville you are tricked into a game world where you (and the friends who invited you) have to work togeather to survive! The HO's are uncluttered the mini games varied the artwork clear and fresh and as a previous reviewer stated a mixture of Logans Run and in my opinion Running Man This game has stayed with me more than I expected. Whatever skill level you are give it a try .Good Luck February 1, 2014
Outstanding, A+ Game - completely different storyline... I was riveted by this game. The storyline is completely different than any game I've played. Sort of like Jumanji....where the game (in this case, deck of cards) takes on a life of its own. Very well done! January 31, 2014
Good fun and holds the interest... I normally do not like games with cute characters and more fantasy elements, but this game held my interest completely. Everything about it was entertaining and interesting. I am not a long-winded reviewer, so I apologize for not providing details, but I would say that even if you normally like the darker games like I do, you will still enjoy this one. It is challenging.

Long Long !!!!! This was a free game. Such a long game for a SE. Just by chance I picked this one. I am still playing after a long time. It's worth it even if you pay. March 16, 2014
A Lot of Fun! This was a very different storyline than usual, thank goodness! A fun, whimsical, oddball fantasy world with a great little sidekick you get to name. The graphics were beautifully done. Lip sync was a little off, but I've never played a game yet where it was accurate. And I assume these games are available in different languages so that would make sense. This was also a fairly long game for not being a CE. And it was relatively easy without seeming too easy. I like a challenge, but I don't like challenges that don't make sense. Everything in this game made sense, in an other-worldly way. Hope there are more like this. It was quite enjoyable. February 4, 2014
Nice game I liked this game. Graphics were really nice. It is more like an adventure game with puzzles. Some folks complain about having to go back and forth, but I think it helps memory, so I don't mind that. It has a map anyway. It took me a while to complete and some of the puzzles were different. I liked the story too. This was better than a lot of the games I've played. Would like to see more from this developer. May 16, 2014
