One of the worst games I've played. Ist - if I had wanted to read a novel I would have grabbed a book and done so. 2nd - it's so dark and gloomy you can't even see to play. 3rd - the same games over and over. Really, don't waste your money.

Save your money!
I played the trial version of this game (so glad I didn't buy it), and was bored from the start. I found nothing creepy or dark here (not like some of the really good dark gothic stories that have amazing artwork ). There were too many written things to read rather than the story playing itself out. There were too many of the same monotonous puzzles to solve. Nothing drew me into the story,and I played the full 60 minutes only to kill time.

Well...... That was bad on many level. First, you need to click continue every time done with search of items totally unrelated to the environment or "story line".
Second unimaginative game. No find clues, items to use only HOGs and match sections of picture to details at the bottom. Boring and even tho the visual good it is flat and uninteresting.
Items, sounds been recycled from an other similarly bad game Hide and Secret series.
Just awful. Creepy. But not in the old Victorian/ abandoned mansion/ asylum/ cemetery creepy.
Pages of TLDR story which was just as flat and not even close to be interesting as the game.
No cut scenes, no V O (which I thing it is a blessing seeing how poor quality the rest is).
Even with not too great games I try to finish the one hour free trial just to see how far I can get, but this was so bad I quit at 20 minutes.
Hard to put in words how bad this was.
It is a -1 on my "ten-o-meter"

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.
