Loved the concept, and the graphics were amazing.
The carriage to go back and forth saved a lot of time.
A lot of different puzzle and play types mixed in made for lack of boring sections - nicely done.

This is one my earliest games of BFG. I love it, the storyline is rather cute, and the images are, too. There are different stories in this game in which connected, with good puzzles and mini games. Not so creepy as the title says, but rather funny and adorable. A great game overall.

A pretty good game with two caveats...
Deadtime stories has very nice, illustrated graphics, pretty good voice-overs, and a bit of a real story. There are adventure game elements, so you're not just jumping from one HOS to the next. It's an interesting and entertaining game, longer than many HOG's, and well-made. This game has a lot going for it, but I had two complaints. The first is that the "narrator" (whom you see but don't hear--all text) is obviously a woman dressed up like a man, and is given a man's name. It's like they didn't have a male character handy, so they used this one and tried to make her look a little more male. That was weird. The other is that I noticed in the ending credits that Jane Jensen had a hand in making this game. The story in this game is decent, but not a worthy example of her talent. This is the story-teller behind the very popular Gabriel Knight adventure game series, and a successful author to boot. I'm surprised the story in this game wasn't better, but it's still got a lot more story than most HOG's. Aside from those very minor complaints, Deadtime Stories is still a pretty good game and worth playing.

I want more ...
I just finished playing this game and I can tell you that the only disappointment for me was when the game ended ... I wanted to keep going!
Really liked this game from the graphics, to the puzzles, to the story (which kept me interested and most don't) and the voices of the narrators.
Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope there will be more to come! Just make them longer next time. :)

RERUN FOR ME
Review is based from memory on completed game I had purchased on a CD about two or three years ago. LOL
As I started to play this game last night, the house with the spirits at the gate seemed familiar to me. Also, the name Jessie Bodeen and the story she has to tell, which is a doozy by the way if my memory serves me correctly. ;-D I do remember I enjoyed the game which is why I'm submitting this strange review. Can't really comment on much but I do remember what was in store for Jessie which I plan to keep to myself. Buy and enjoy!! Happy gaming!

Great Story over all too soon
I loved the story behind this game. I was hoping that there were several "stories" to be told. Maybe next time. Can't wait!!!

If you like HOG, then you will like this game. To me it seemed more like a treasure hunt/HOG only. The HOS are the same ones over and over again. You collect items thru several scenes then put them together to get one item to finish that segment and get a cutscene. The story line is good. For the most part it is a relaxing game to play on a rainy day.
