Boring, very different from the normal HO games
Though I initially found the story line to be intriguing enough to try it out, I was overall very disappointed. There is no interaction outside of kindergarden-like puzzles over and over. The entire game was reading out of someone's diary. Very boring, and certainly not what I look for an HO or even puzzle game. I only got through a half an hour of the trial version before I was completely bored. Seriously, don't waste your time or money.

Just pass this one up, please!
I stumbled across this title whilst looking for what my next creepy game purchase might be. As usual, I watched the preview and read the bad reviews, and I was immediately intrigued with just how much people seemed to hate this game. Adult warning labels always get my attention as well, so I downloaded the trial to see what all the fuss was about. Boy, they weren't wrong either! "Repetitive" and "boring" are the right adjectives to describe this game. There is no originality to the puzzles and far too much reading to move the story along. I want to see action in my games with people talking to each other to learn the plot, not having to read everything. And just the downbeat story about the little girl made my stomach turn. I was actually feeling sick to my stomach during the entire trial and I was glad when it was finally over. I wanted to finish the demo so I could write a fair review of it. I like to play games for fun, and I can't see how anyone would play this game when they're in the mood for fun and find it enjoyable. I found it depressing. The next installment was better but be sure to demo that one as well. Neither one is on my "to buy" list.

AVOID THIS GAME
boring, easy, no real game time, would hardly call it a hidden object game

not worth money
Way too spooky to be a family game, and hard to navigate. It took me a while to figure out how to start the game play and how to exit, because the menu screen doesn't show any of that.
