Buried in Time
I really liked this game i wish they made more games like this one or that the creators continued the game because it is really well done. It also has a very good storyline. It has its level of challenge since you need to have a balance in the levels of each of your characters, cause then you will not be able to progress and you will be stuck. For me it was really fun and as i said the gameplay is unique and for now very interesting.

Like Artist Colony, only better
This game got me in the first scene, with the dialog. I just loved the guy.
It is a sim game, with a storyline that is advanced as more items are unearthed in the dig. In the meantime workers have to be hired, fed, and housed, and this all takes time. You may earn a grant by digging out certain items, but most of the money comes from delivering special flowers to the storyteller, and that takes some time. Workers have to expand their skills, and this only happens through experience. And in the meantime the old story gets told, as sell as the contemporary one until the last secret is unearted and the sotry reaches its conclusion.
Other workers have their own romances going, and sometimes they will be happy, and sometimes heartbroken.
I loved it.

I love this game and artists one as well because their pictures and audio are just amazing. The story line is easy to follow but not boring. They give characters different faces and talents, which made them come to alive. I think it's more of a girl's game because it's a bit romantic as the love story is the main thread in the game. The game also gave some perspectives on love. A loving and caring guy is much more to a girl than an ambitious man without a kind heart - well, at least that is what I think really true.
Please make more games like this one. More specific personality attached to the roles would be great ! Also great story with a hint of insight is best.

I would love more games like this.
This game very uniquely blends hidden objects, Sim, and strategy. My only disappointment was when I completed the game. Looks like I will be creating another profile and playing again.

Interesting adventure game
This is a combination puzzle, sim game.
The game object is to uncover various artifacts and solve puzzles to uncover the mystery of the society's demise. To accomplish this you have to acquire a combination of skills.
In addition to this game play, you have to feed and rest your characters which impacts how long they can work. They can also romance each other by giving flowers to each other which increases how long they can work before eating and sleeping again.
I have played this game through three times and found it a lot of fun. It takes some planning ahead to make sure you have a team with the right combination of skills so you can get every item. You also have optional items you can collect to increase the amount of money you have.
Pros - Slow gameplay, you can set your own pace.
Puzzles are challenging but not too complicated.
Good storyline and graphics
Cons - Scrolling is not as smooth as I would prefer.
You can back yourself into a corner where you can no longer progress if you do not distribute your skills.
Overall this is an enjoyable game that I recommend.

Lots of Replay Value
I like this game a lot - although not quite as much as Artist Colony, which I loved! That said, I am playing it for the third time now. I like the strategy aspects and in each replay I've tried hiring different people to see how the flow of the game changes. The number one thing I would change is having to go through the tutorial every time I start a new game.

It's fun, but you have alot of responsibility that keeps growing in the game!
If you like the game Artist Colony, then you will love this game. They both have their own style of gameplay, and the graphics are pretty nice. You get to decide who you need and figure out what they do best. As you open up more of the game, you might find yourself overwhelmed trying to keep everyone organized. It's still has mini-games (strategy & puzzles.) It is a longer game for me, and honestly the fun factor is good, but I'll be honest that I started to lose interest and still have yet to complete the game. I do like the concept of the gameplay. If you like this one, then you might like Artist Colony also. They both work around their own little personal touch of gameplay.
