Scarlett Frost, specialist in the dark arts, has been summoned to a luxurious and remote theatre in the snowy Italian Alps. Could it be that the infamous and diabolical Hapsburg Cube has been found and purchased by the sinister theatre proprietor, Dr. Corvis? The cube is said to imprison a powerful and ancient Babylonian demon that would wreak hellish destruction if the cube should break. In a moment of desperate confusion the cube breaks and the demon bursts forth into the souls of the Dr. Corvis and his young Daughter Bethany. The ancient theatre in the lonely winter mountains becomes an arena of spiritual war, between the darkest forces of the underworld and the cunning and esoteric mind of Scarlett Frost. But Scarlett soon finds out that the only way to fight a demon this powerful is to become possessed by one herself. Only then can she acquire a ticket to the Theatre of the Absurd.

Customer Reviews
Theatre of the Absurd is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Theatre of the Absurd is Absurdly good fun! I enjoyed the graphics in this game and found the story line fascinating! The rooms and overall imagery during this game was consistent in theme and very believable. My only improvement would be to provide more puzzle varieties as opposed to strictly hidden objects. Overall, a very enjoyable game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is how a scary themed game should look. Yeah... another game about a demon being released and how to keep it there... I But here you believe it. Too many of these games take place in sunlit scenes and commonplace rooms. Here the décor matches the story. We are inside an abandoned church, and the blue/gray tones are what we expect of a macabre story. Then the hint system if fully appropriate, Red messages written on the forearm of the protagonist. VERY spooky. Secret passages, crows, ominous painitings, a torture chamber... You do believe the story. The HOS are the usual junk piles, but they are set in very macabre settings that get to you. The minigames can be solved with little problems, and the narrative flows goes swimmingly. I am not to sure about the ending... but I had a great time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting! Bought this game as it was a daily deal... LOVED it, played it through twice already. Has an interesting story that made me want to continue. I didn't find it boring at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creepy, Eerie, Weird, Unique and Fantastic Game! This game is very different, even unique in my experience here at BFG. It won't be to everyone's taste, but so far I'm hooked and will definitely buy it at $2.99 as a COTW. I have not had much trouble with the HOS at all, but I will say that the items are hidden in somewhat of a unique way (sorry, there's that word 'unique' again). Nevertheless, I'm enjoying them very much -- not just looking for the HOs but taking in the artwork of the scenes as a whole. I love, love, love the red-tattooed arm and hand hints and powers! It reminds me of a series of vampire novels that I really enjoyed reading. I believe the jerky cut scene motion and the voice looping that a couple of people mentioned may have been glitches that didn't show up for me. I have turned the voiceover sound down a little in the options menu, but I didn't want to get rid of it completely. The voices, along with the sound effects, definitely add to the weird atmosphere. Congratulations to the developers for creating an eerily creepy, beautiful, and captivating game..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I was unsure about getting this, so I used my freebie. I was not disappointed. Very fun game. Just wish I would have gotten the collectors edition so I could play longer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strange but Fun Definitely different. HOs were not too easy but doable. There was also a variety of games besides HOs. The storyline kept my interest. No map which made it difficult to remember where the rooms were. Overall alot of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Number 1 I was so excited about this game I stopped 30 minutes into it to see how others had reviewed it. I was shocked that it wasn't higher than a 4. I understand that people may find it "creepy" or scary but protestations that it's demonic or satanic are ridiculous. It is not. Perhaps it's baroque? But NO, it's not pure evil. It's a game. And it is pure...pure brilliance. That's one man's opinion. I notice that others who think it's satanic also like nothing else about the game. I think their moral concerns have colored their objective reviews of the game. Enough "preaching." While some complain that the HOGs are too difficult, too grainy, impossible to see, I say this: Yes, they are difficult. And I think that some of the graininess is what makes it difficult. And I LOVE IT. It's great to have an HOS which presents a challenge. It took me much longer than normal to complete HOG but I really enjoyed them. They were brilliantly hidden. The background music was a perfect match for the content of the game. The voice overs both from cut scenes and from the regular progression of the game were wonderful. The woman who's the main narrator and protagonist has a very effective tonality. It reminded me a bit of an emotion-filled, determined actor delivering lines in a way that the script demanded: unemotionally yet effectively. That is acting. The course of the game was always pushing North...always moving forward. It was not an East-West game. I felt progress to an important conclusion was always being made. Despite what people have written, I think they know not of which they write. Go to any dramatic, beautiful, old Christian cathedral and you'll see gargoyles. There are a lot of gargoyles in this game. And they add to the ambience. There's fire...it adds to the ambience. There are demons. It's what the story is about. I heartily recommend this game. It is not just good. It is the best I've ever played. My only regret is that I didn't get the CE. One man's opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich Experience! I loved this game! It's fun and the art, scary sound, and special effects are amazing! The puzzles were quite challenging for me, a novice player, but the "richness" of the experience kept me going.
