Mon Dieu, it's Voodoo!
Loved this game because of the New Orleans theme. It definitely has the feeling of old New Orleans, the swamps, the architecture. Graphics were sensational and the story rocked. Didn't have to use the hint much at all.
I was also hoping for a level of play that involved the swamp family seen in the family portrait hanging in the tree. Their swamp house was part of one scene but the people were never seen.
The voodoo theme was well done and increased the creepy fear factor for me. This is what I love about HOGs and mystery puzzles -- a good story.
My only complaint was that the game could have been longer as it was a lot of fun. Anyway, looking forward to a sequel if the developers are planning one! Thanks!

A gem of a game
Finished it in one sitting! The storyline was engaging, graphics and sound quality was great. Puzzles and HOS were medium difficulty. Game layout was unique- kinda like a Twilight zone with the narrator intrducing a scary story. The spells were a nice touch. My favorite part was the alligators. I loved it! I can't wait for another by this developer.

Absolutely love this game!
I was just randomly choosing games to play that have a dark story line with the type of graphics I like, and I had such a great time with the demo, I purchased it. I love games that deal with spirits, fantasy, good vs evil, breaking spells, and this game has it all! Being used to more medieval settings, being in the swamps where voodoo is practiced was a pleasant change. Exploring the various settings and figuring out puzzles to get ingredients for mixing to cast spells was challenging. The final ending to the story was great! Wish there would be another game developed by the creators of this one to pick up the story theme and keep it going. I cannot comment on the sound quality as I tend to go back and forth between playing and watching an interesting TV show, or listening to what others are doing around the home.

After playing the trial for 5 minutes I just knew I had to have this and I'm glad I did because I had a lot of fun with it. The spells make it very different from others I've tried and I really liked those. Hidden object had a good level of difficulty, the objects to find fit the time period and atmosphere well and they had the right size, something that's always important to me.

Why only one game?
This game is visually appealing, fun to play and tells a pretty good story even though you know what happens to the character in the end. My question is why there isn't a sequel because this would be great as a game series. I would suggest making the cemetaries inhabitants from everywhere so we can get stories from more places but for the sake of storytelling, look around at the supernatural games on the site to get an idea for what's been done to death (no pun intended) and what demises could use revamping.

Absolutely amazing. Well worth it!
I can honestly say this is one amazing game. The graphics are gorgeous, the story line is riveting, and the grave keeper is a very handsome man, haha. I'll be waiting very patiently for another Deadtime Stories to come out with a whole new story to explore!

Definitely worth it!
This is an awesome game! The music and the graphics tie directly into the storyline, making for a great experience.

Great story and setting - excellent game!
Great game! If you like old time New Orleans and horse-drawn carriages, you will love this game. Beautiful graphics with a spooky story and some do-it-yourself Voodoo. What's not to like?
