The Unseen Fears: Body Thief is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from grim but great game! I really enjoyed this game. Brought something different to the table than your bog standard hidden object. Great plot, loving the supernatural element.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED this Game!! I loved everything about this game! Especially the different Detective angle. It was great to interact with people so it never felt lonely. The various locations were very cozy and warm. There were just enough puzzles, objects to interact with and places to explore. I know there's a collector's edition but if I had to complain, I wish it were just a tad longer, and that's a compliment considering just how much I enjoyed this awesome game! If it were a series, I'd want to play them all! Very strongly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~~~SOLVE A STRING OF STRANGE MURDERS THAT ENVOLVE MAGIC~~~ Unusual murders may seem difficult to solve, but they usually contain a lot more clues than a body that simply disappears without a trace. Naturally, people rarely commit intricate murders that take forever to set up and plan, unless they are in a movie or some kind of video game. Obviously, such crimes are much more exciting to investigate when you play the role of a gifted detective. The Unseen Fears: Body Thief is a hidden object adventure game in which you play the role of a detective who tackles a weird case regarding a string of unusual murders. Your goal is to discover the necessary clues in order to pinpoint a suspect, but given the fact that you possess a few unique abilities as well, the whole adventure turns into quite the thrilling pursuit. Thrilling is an understatement in this 5+ adventure. The plot starts with a victim who was apparently skinned alive using fire, yet all of her clothes are intact in spite of the damage. Your goal is to collect the clues around the murder scene and present them to the detective in charge, and the story gets even more intriguing later on. After being saved from near drowning during your childhood by magical deity, you are given a seal. A special power which gives you the ability to see the "unseen". This proves very helpful as you progress thru this fantastic murder mystery. As for the graphics, they are about as detailed as they can get in the genre, and it’s great to see that the artists managed to create such a suspenseful atmosphere using nothing but static artwork. It’s quite a rush to explore some of the scenes, especially thanks to the neat sound effects and great soundtrack. All in all, The Unseen Fears: Body Thief is a very engaging puzzle game, and quite the challenging hidden object game at the same time. Hence, you can have a lot of fun with it if you enjoy a REALLY good mystery. I loved every minute of this unique game and I love the genre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fear the Hunters! An exitingly fresh game! It kept me on my toes until the end and throughout the bonus chapter. That is, when I finally opened my eyes again for the analogue world, I heard already the first blackbirds chirp their songs of dawn ... What starts out as a shockingly gross murder, soon turns into a fantasy surprise bag and a supernatural witch hunt. Not so long ago, I've seen a similar story from another developer. It's the old tale of false accusation and murder in the name of a hypocritical rightousness. In truth we hardly can lay the blame on the witches when they become vengeful. We certainly must blame the hunters. Hunters chase the innocent, pursue minorities, bully the community: unpleasant fear mongers in dark leather coats who brandish guns, swords and crossbows. Watch out for the treacherous, blood-thirsty glint in their eyes and beware! Those are dangerous barbarians, because they enjoy to kill. Their goal is the killing, not the saving of the world, the purge of evil, or what nonsense they ever will tell you. They shoot first and ask later - if they ask at all. In a more sensible world, they would be urgend to see a doctor. But here they are, on the loose in Amsterdam – and we have even to help this loudmouthed type who's name I already forgot. I was so disappointed that he wasn't eaten by the giant spider at the end. Until now I didn't know that Amsterdam is inhabited by shapeshifters, too. Originally, they look a bit like an accidental mix of rabbits and elves, and their eyes glow sickly red. Their hare-lip covers a pair of neatly pointed fangs; any vampire could become envious. Although an innocent, harmless folk, their appearance is not ordinary enough - and they naturally provide a perfect target for the hunters. We'll have to rescue them several times. But frankly, it's not the story which drives this adventure, it's the gameflow and the pacing. We are constantly challenged with new twists, have never time to relax; the next surprises wait already around the corner and thwart any ennui. It seems Grandma Studio skipped none of the grisly clichees: hands shoot out from the floor, mirrors show grimaces, skeletons suddenly move, bats emerge in flocks out of dark places, bloody hands smear over window panes. But the effect is more likely funny, like a ride in the ghost train at the carneval. We can even chose whether to play it “dark” or “light”. With more or less shocking details, I assume; because I couldn't yet bring myself to play it light mode. But I noticed that in the first scene with the body, there is no difference. We see the poor girl skinned and twitching all the same, be it in dark or in light mode. We play as Nathaniel, a guy who possesses supernatural abilities due a childhood accident and can “see the unseen” - indicated as usual by glowing runes on our wrist. He has something smug like a divinity student and looks to me a bit lukewarm, mousy and pallid. He also looks as if he could turn into a rodent any minute; maybe he stays too much inside. The Amsterdam setting is attractive; we visit a house boat, the luxury mansion of a celebrity, a museum with unforeseen cellars, a witch's home, a floating lighthouse, literally gone to pieces. I adored the subtle way of handling animals. We free a mouse from a trap, and cut twice a bird out of tangled ropes - a symbolic and slightly disturbing picture. Once, we even must free the bird first, before we can do something for two men in life danger. LOL, makes somehow sense. Birds are precious, much too many species already on the brink of extinction - whereas humankind spreads in an overpopulation of seven billion … By the way: I liked the frightened stammering of de Vires' two body guards, after their rescue. Very credible voice overs. Even the music was more than the usual shallow audio stream. Sometimes like suspenseful SFX, working with traffic and industrial noises, sirens, reverberations, ghostly choirs, at times like the soundtrack of an expressionistic black and white movie with dramatic tunes; it captured the mood of the game very well. The sound was wisely set, unobtrusive. I never turned it off, which says much about it's quality. In fact, I even downloaded the tracks - and you know what? Also without game they are surprisingly enthralling, never boring. Congrats, Yaroslav Shchogla :) Puzzles and mini games are mostly not very challenging, but amusing to play. The best parts are the HOPs ... e.g. a colourful boudoir with cosmetic things, ribbons and hats, a stone carving of a Roman battle, a Native Indian tribe in the museum, attacked by the army, a police-office with evidence board ... HOPs are thematically arranged, greatly varied, mysteriously encrypted, inventive and entertaining, just as we like them. There is one with Ester de Vires, when she is assaulted by magical snakes at the masquerade ball. Everybody is aghast and frightened – but of course there is the one guy who brandishes in midst of the turmoil his smartphone and takes it all up for the social media. I just love this kind of subtle wit. But what I liked best is the encounter with several big spiders and creepy-crawly bug infestations - and I'm never forced to use pesticide! Finally a dev who is intelligent enough to know that our fingers don't fall off if we grab an item next to a spider, or if we brush away a spider's web by hand. This alone is worth a five star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting and different - welll worth a play I really liked this game, it started with something different and you were allowed to choose the scary mode or not too scary. I chose scary and lots of special effects. Good story line that made sense to the end. Good visuals and sound. Good mini games. Overall really worth a play - I bought the SE version and was very satisfied with the quality and length of play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for the nervous or easily disturbed! Shape-shifters, flayed bodies, a mysterious and threatening crossbow-­wielding villain, arcane symbols, they are all here! All  of the now ­usual  game settings are available, as well as one that is unique. At the very beginning of the game, you have the choice of game darkness —and this has nothing to do with the game's ambient light. The interactive map is very useful as you trek around the canal-­bound Dutch city. The graphics are sometimes a little indistinct around the edges at times, but that may be the artist's intent. Background music is appropriate to the overall game, as well as to individual scenes in particular and, for me, definitely added to the playing experience. This is not a game for the faint­ of ­heart, nor for children, but if you have a taste for the bizarre this game will certainly satisfy. Having now played the CE and SE demos, I'm still not sure of the antagonist's mission, but this game is so intriguiging that I don't care! My recommendation comes with the usual caveat that you  play the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Have Supernatural Powers Flowing Through Me! The Unseen Fears has raised the bar with their first game, Body Thief, it's a really good game, however, it could have been fantastic, but they just had to introduce fantasy creatures and ruin the direction I thought it was taking. I don't mind fantasy creatures, when they are in a fantasy themed game, but I really thought this game was going to be a somewhat realistic game about a deranged serial killer. They could have pushed this game a little further to cross the blurred sugar coated lines, and give us an epic, never been done before genre in the BF gaming world. Why can't they? Why don't they? A simple disclosure to e-sign before downloading or purchasing is all they need to present a rated R intense psychological thriller. If that kind of game is offered, I guarantee sales would go through the roof. So, the bottom line is, this is a good game, but it's really just another game about a paranormal investigator called in to solve a crime. You are given the option to play this game in a sugar coated "dark" version complete with things that go bump in the night, or an even more sugar coated version where everything in the world is good, because that's what you want to believe, that there's no monster under the bed. I chose to see the things that go bump in the night, so far I saw a spider, and a couple of attempts intended to surprise the gamer with a couple of pop up ghosts, but nothing dramatic. The Amsterdam police have asked for your help to solve what seems to be an unsolvable case. There has been a rash of murders that seems supernatural. All of the victims are void of skin, (and by skin, I mean all tissue because the only thing they show is a skeleton so don't get the heebie jeebies yet) but their clothes remain in tact. Your supernatural ability to see the unseen, is the only way these cases will be solved because these women have been murdered by something very supernatural. You weren't born with this ability, it was given to you as a child, by an archangel, Khepri (or perhaps he's the mothman) who saved you from drowning. Khepri taught you how to see what no one else could, but he disappeared one day as quickly as he appeared. Perhaps these cases are related to the disappearance of your cherished mentor, perhaps your search for answers lies within this case. Your Seal is used during the investigation, to activate your supernatural abilities, and see the unseen. In the Collector's Edition version, there are 77 Hidden Symbols to search for throughout the game. Unfortunately, your abilities don't help you "see" the 77 Hidden Symbols throughout the game, because a lot of them are really difficult to "see" but that's a good thing! Your first task is to gather evidence that may help the detective solve the case. I found it kind of funny that you gather the evidence using contaminated tweezers that you found during your investigation. First of all, shouldn't you be wearing gloves? Shouldn't you have come prepared with your own tools? The Hidden Object Scenes are creative, such as finding the correct objects to ward off your attacker's as described and shown as a Silhouetted Shape. There are also Multiples of Symbols, Silhouetted Shape finds and Zoom Zone listed item finds. You can opt for a Match 3 game instead of the HOP. The Mini Games are usually presented in several layers, below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Connect the matching colored tiles without intersecting paths, and the entire honeycomb grid must be filled. 2) Select the facts that correctly connect the murders. 3) Match the victims with the places they were murdered, by placing photos on the crime scene. 4) Place the clues into the correct folders. 5) Find all pairs of symbols by selecting tokens to see the hidden symbols. 6) Rotate groups of tokens until they omit a beam of light. 7) Untangle the threads. 8) Press the button when all blue spheres are in the target zone to shoot. The Collector's Edition has 14 Achievements to earn, replayable Mini Games and Hidden Object Scenes, 77 Hidden Symbols, 8 Music Soundtracks, Movies, 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, a built in Strategy Guide, and 2 Bonus Chapters (Being Human and New Crime Murder In Alley) enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from DEFEAT THE WITCH REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS This is a very easy casual game to play. The main game is about Nathan Wilson on the hunt to defeat the witch. The Bonus game is about Marjolaine (a shapeshifter). There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced, Hardcore and Custom modes; * Interactive map; * List of tasks board; * 14 Achievements; * Find 77 symbols in game and bonus (1 to 3 in each scene). The graphics range from being okay to good. Some scenes are a bit dark, but you can still find everything you need. Sound is good and the music is orchestral. The hidden object games are straightforward and finding 12 items of an item. These are very easy to do and don't take much thought. However, you can play Match 3 if you prefer. The mini-games are extremely easy to do and you can get back to the game within a couple of minutes. I've seen them all before, however there were a couple of them that I liked doing again. There are 77 symbols to find throughout the game and bonus which range from 1-3 in every scene. Some of these were hard to spot, but I did these first so I wouldn't forget about them and then find you cannot go back. Get them all and you get an achievement. I didn't use the interactive map at all because there are only a couple of scenes to work through before you move on. When you have finished the game and bonus there is a Murder in Alley to do. First find 10 ravens, then do a HOP and then restore the outline of the murder. This will all take about 10 minutes or so. I managed to get all the achievements without putting in much effort - It didn't feel that great because I didn't have to work hard to achieve them. All up the game, bonus and extras took me about 4 hours to do. It would have been a lot shorter if there had been no symbols to find because that took up the most time. Overall, a simple game that is perfect for beginners. For the more seasoned player, it is just too easy and boredom can set in - which happened to me.
