Brought to you by Artifex Mundi, the creators of the Enigmatis and Nightmares from the Deep series.

Within the shadow of an ancient forest, on the bottom of the foggy valley, stands the lonely village of Ravenbrook. Its perimeter is protected by the villagers' charms, but beyond the legends and the magic, the gloomy forests and wailing wind, lies a chasm so deep and feared, it is known by the villagers only as The Abyss. No one knows what lies within, but when a strange visitor arrives in Ravenbrook just before a young bride is kidnapped, the villagers find justification for their superstitions…

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride Collector's Edition 4.4 5 69 69
A lovely relaxing game Really liked the storyline of this game, hooked you and made you want to play till the end. Visually I found it lovely and relaxing. The HOs were mixed and interesting and well spaced out, and i liked the option of playing dominoes. The puzzles whilst not that hard, were also a little different. The bonus chapter was in a different location and tied things up nicely. All in all a very good game! March 12, 2014
A Woman Scorned!! Based on the Completed Collector's Edition Game. I really like this game, and am happy that I got the Collector's Edition, as it seems to offer the things I need to make playing the game as enjoyable as possible, ie: A Strategy Guide, which I admit I needed to refer to, though not that often, (I stubbornly persevere, and only use the hint button or strategy guide if I absolutely cannot figure out my next move). I like having that safety net, even if I don't need it. A Bonus Chapter, which actually adds to the story, and finishes the game satisfactorily. All the other stuff in the Bonus Items, is stuff that I have no real interest in, such as screensavers, concept art, and music, ect. The story was very good. A scorned woman utters a curse in her moment of anguish, and then regrets her words, too late. The story kept me engaged throughout the game, and made me want to find out how things turned out. The game play made sense, which in my humble, and admittedly novice opinion, is not the case in so many games. You needed a particular item to advance in the game? You got that item, and not a whole list of incomprehensible things for which you could find no use. The graphic were beautifully done, crystal clear, and colorful. The music, I can't comment on, as it is the first thing turned off, along with the Custom Cursor, as I think they are irritating. The ambient sound were non intrusive, and the voice overs were well done. I even managed to complete some of the Puzzles, which is another irritant for me, as I play these games for the Hidden Object Games, and not Puzzles, which I don't really like. This is a game that has a good ending, even without playing the Bonus Chapter, though I admit I found that final chapter very satisfying. All in all, a very good game. March 10, 2014
Pretty Good! I Really Enjoyed This! Artifex Mundi is one of my favourite developers, and this is near one of the best. I really enjoyed the demo (even though it seemed to take forever), and even though it was really interesting, I'm still not sure if I want to buy this or not. Artifex are known for their weird and wacky stories and this is no exception. The story was pretty interesting, mainly because it was different and because it was strange. I mean, a bear kidnaps a girl. How weird! The story starts off exciting, then dies down a little. But by the end of the demo, it becomes exciting again. The story includes a few cutscenes. More than usual, but not enough to annoy the living daylights out of me. The cutscenes were of a good length too. Of course, it wouldn't be Artifex without a completely unseen twist. The twist in question was good, but it left me confused. Why was it happening? Why is this character evil? What do they want? Usually, these questions are answered with this sort of twist, but in this one, they weren't. It kind of puts me off buying a little bit. As well as that, I have one other very small issue with the story. In the story, the town is called Ravenbrook. Artifex had a previous game in which the town was called Ravenwood. Can't they think of a better town name? Overall, I did enjoy the story. It was well thought out and executed well, but it did have a couple of flaws that prevented it from being brilliant. The gameplay was pretty good. The ratio of HOS and Puzzles was good too. The HOS were a mix of Fragmented Object scenes and Silhouette scenes. The HOS were good and fun to play, but in my opinion, there should have been less Fragmented Object scenes and more Junkpile scenes. I prefer junkpile scenes to FO scenes as I find them more fun to play. There aren't many HOS in the demo, so those who prefer adventure games and don't care much for HOS will like this one. The puzzles occur less frequently than the HOS, which I actually liked. I'm not a big fan of puzzles, so it was nice to have a bit less of them for a change. That being said, the puzzles were actually pretty good. They were fun and they were easy to solve, something that is rare for me. Thanks to the developers for making some puzzles that are not only fun, but solvable! In the game, you are given an animal in the form of an adorable little kitty! This kitty, although vocal, is really helpful. The little guy likes to explore and will help you out in any way he can. I really enjoyed using him and would even go as far as to say he is the best animal helper in any game (or maybe that's my soft spot for cats talking...). Other than that, I'd say this is pretty much your average HOPA. It's got all the basic features (diary excluded), so experienced players should have no trouble with the game. I'd also recommend this game for beginners. This is a pretty easy game to start out with. The graphics in this game are pretty good, as usual. They are excellently drawn, especially the character designs. The characters are very close to looking like real people. Everything in the game is clear and has such detail, it's a visual delight. The voice-overs are standard. I have no comment. FEATURES 3 modes of difficulty: Casual, Advanced and Hard. Differences are hint/skip charge times, sparkles, etc. I played Casual. Hint/skip- both recharge at a reasonable rate for the difficulty. The hint is helpful outside HOS. Map- the map is interactive and very helpful. It lets you know where you have a task to complete. Kitty- This is your animal helper, and as mentioned before, he is quite useful. I really enjoyed using him. CE EXCLUSIVES Built in Strategy Guide- great for puzzles. Pretty helpful. Bonus Chapter- Unsure if needed. Achievements- both gameplay and story based. Collectible illusive objects. Collectible fairy things. Re-watch cutscenes. Replay HOS Replay Puzzles Concept Art Music Wallpaper Overall, I thought this was a pretty enjoyable game, and I'm glad I played the trial. I'm still unsure if I want to buy it or not, but if I had to choose a version, I'd go with the SE. I highly recommend you download the trial! March 1, 2014
Demo too short :( I wanted to cry when the demo ended as I was just getting into this one...boohoo. I have to get this one so hope there's a sale this weekend. This is more of an adventure game than I usually like, but I was managing to figure things out and was moving along when it to get back to it asap. Thanks for giving us a slightly different game, lots of things mixed up in this one and HOs are not all list, but had a silhouette and a find the pieces. Hope the remaining isn't a disappointment. Colorful graphics, voiceover without dialog (yeah), challenging but not too difficult, and no, the storyline isn't brand new, but it still works and is interesting. WTG! February 27, 2014
I liked this Good length lovely crisp visuals was a good solid game! April 2, 2014
Disappointing vo's Everything was fabulous but.... Beautiful graphics, story, puzzles, hos, kitten and All the extras. What was missing? I really like vos but in this game I was disappointed. There was so much detail to make everything excellent for the player, but the voices were like they (actors) were reading from a script.You would think that detail was important enough to be realistic. Too much money to spend for that overlooked importance in the playing experience. All in all, the game is wonderful, but for me, that made the final decision to not buy. March 28, 2014
Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride This is an Artifex Mundi game. The storyline is not a new one but not boring either. The young bride is stolen by a bear and the bride-to-be's fianc and sister set out to rescue her. I only played the demo in the casual mode but thoroughly enjoyed this delightful game. The graphics are beautiful and clear. The mini games are easy but fun. You have a kitten to assist you for high up or hard to reach items. There 30 spirits to collect along with 28 elusive objects to find. There is some challenge to this aspect of game. Overall, I would rate this game as worth purchasing, but I am going to wait until the SE version is released. February 27, 2014
Grim Legends It was a really good game. over all i felt the buy price should be a bit cheaper only because you don't get to test out all parts of game before trial ends and i am scared to buy it and then not like the rest of the game. March 11, 2014
Where is my Sister Lovely game -- you are on a quest to find your sister. There are many puzzles to solve and the hidden objects are partly interactive. The bonus section is long and interesting. You have a book, a map, a guide and a hint key. There are awards to win and special objects to be found. April 26, 2014
I'll Forsake This Game I want to say straight out that within a few minutes of play I knew this game was not for me (more on that later). However, I played it to the end of the trial. The game's setting is that you are in pursuit of your sister through the forest as she has been kidnapped by a huge bear on the eve of her wedding. The artwork is done in a very colorful kind of "storybook" or fairy tale style (Grim or Grimm Tales?) characterized by rich, saturated reds, blues and greens with no single color really dominating the palette. Cut scenes are well done. Perhaps it's just me, but I thought there was incongruity (can use that word?) between the drawing style and the story because the story is actually quite dark and frightening. The voices I found to be lacking. While the voices used DO fit the character's appearance, the actors fall short of being convincing and instead sound like they are trying too hard. The game play is different than the usual. There are a few hidden object scenes, which are fragmented, (FROGS) or progressive silhouette, and a lot more mini (and I mean mini) games and puzzles. They are all nicely drawn, but will not present much of a challenge. The biggest challenge is looking around and finding all the active areas. The on-screen hints are of the hand-holding type. There are potions to be made as well. Since in the game it actually states that witchcraft is a good thing, and you meet a witch early on, I suspect there are a lot of spells and things of that type as you progress. Anyway, I am sure I'll be in the minority on this. As I said in the beginning, I knew this game would not be for me. This is a game that is clearly aimed at the ladies. Nothing wrong with that, by the way. There is a note on the options screen that the game will automatically play in widescreen (it did). This seems like an OK game, not very challenging, and that definitely has a certain appeal. However, I am afraid this is one bride I must leave at the altar. February 27, 2014
