Customer Reviews
Margrave: The Blacksmith's Daughter Collector's Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Isn't Just a "Game" This marvelous creation dates from 2013 but it's easily one of the best Big Fish has to offer. It's unique, anyone else who copies the remarkable storyline is a flat out imitator. Cyclopean/mechanical characters with such human attributes prevail. Not a lot of animation but so much is crammed into so little. Scenes are dreamlike and fantastic, you're in a sort of Brigadoon and time is slipping away...HOPs and puzzles may seem inappropriate here but it works, it all works. Unbelievable. Sometimes, I think the very best games like this one have been done already, here in 2016 and beyond.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what devs should strive for...it's exquisite. Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter CE Review based on multiple times playing the full game & bonus chapter PROLOGUE... The Blacksmith’s Daughter and The Curse of the Severed Heart are among my all-time favorite games. Great stories that unfold beautifully, with just enough left to the imagination that the plot twists are complete surprises. Combine this with gameplay that requires neurons, lush graphics, and ethereal music, and I’m sold. ONCE UPON A TIME... Elize Thorn asks Edwina Margrave and her boyfriend Tom to meet before dawn to witness something that will change their lives. And it certainly does! As the sun crests the horizon, the town of the Cyclops appears as if by magic. Elize tells them it happens only once every 300 years. As she’s relating the story, the Cyclops Uisdean appears and kidnaps Tom, taking him into the city. Elize tells Edwina that if she doesn’t rescue Tom before sunset, he’ll be stuck in the city forever. It will take all Edwina’s courage and skills to not only explore the city and find Tom, but also to neutralize Uisdean and escape again…all before the sun sets. PLAY THE GAME... HO scenes are all basic lists, but they’re all of medium difficulty, since the objects are actually hidden…partially obscured behind other items, blended into the scene, and so on. These are not throwaway HO scenes. As with The Curse of the Severed Heart, there are puzzle series: • Wake the sleeping Seers using Edwina’s dream cards and runestones. First, you’re given a row of shapes. The shape halves are along the edges of the dream cards, and you must match them up. There’s only one way to do this. Second is a mini-game that’s a cross between matching pairs and three-card Monte. • Following the given clue, use Gotto to draw lines between points to render four constellations. You’ll have to figure out which clue goes with which board. • Similar to the first Gotto puzzle, except with shapes, and the board is rotated from its correct angle, making it more difficult. There are lots of adventure game-type puzzles where you discover a clue that you use later on. These include recipes, codes, sketches, and the like, and often incorporate items in your inventory. SIGHTSEEING... Scenes range from stunningly panoramic to whimsical to idyllic, all rendered in exquisite detail and color. Animation is a touch stop-motion in nature, but I don’t find that it detracts from the experience. NPCs are live actors overlaid with rendered graphics, making them blend into the digital scenery perfectly. SOUNDBOARD... As in The Curse of the Severed Heart, the music is mostly beautifully ambient soundscapes, quite fitting to the theme of an abandoned mythical city. Environmental sounds abound, and voiceovers are really quite good. TOOLBOX... You have a dual inventory—one for usable items and one for ‘keepsakes,’ which are notes and sketches containing clues. Switch between them by clicking the flower. The map shows active areas, but does not transport, with the exception of a few hidden tunnels that are revealed in mid-game. Additionally, you have Afi the mechanical bird to reach things you can’t, Rudo the Seer to give you hints and advice, Gotto the mechanical beetle to help you with weblocks, your dream cards and runestones, and a ‘see lock’ device. (How to use all of these is revealed in-game as you find them.) OH BOTHER! Mac requirements specify OS 10.5-10.8, but this game still works perfectly with El Capitan! OOH! PIECE OF CANDY... In the bonus chapter, travel with Edwina to a monastery where a Cyclops has enclosed a beacon inside a gigantic shadowlock…a beacon that calls to the souls of children. Collect all 60 strawberries to unlock the Strawberry Book and learn the story of Elize Thorn’s life, her relationship with Uisdean, and how she became an automaton. EPILOGUE... Five stars. This is what casual games should be. A story so epic that it’s only when you’ve finished that the real world exists again for you. Gameplay that, in places, makes you wrack your brains for a solution. Graphics that pull you into the screen and make you want to be there. Music that soothes your soul. And, when it’s over, you want more. Like reading a good book, you’ve invested in the characters and you want to know what happens to them. So, come on devs, give us more of Edwina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertainingly beautiful! A unique story! Positively refreshing! The Margrave series is excellent. The Cursed Heart and Blacksmith's Daughter paves a way to a new kind of adventure HOS Puzzle game. I absolutely loved every bit of the story, graphics, and music. The puzzles are challenging and fit very will with the game. I love the keepsake inventory idea...brilliantly different. I also found the developers of the last two game touch something in the human soul, which is something any human can relate too. There are many games out there and these just are so so different that it's hard to compare them to anything else. I just can say I love these and hope they become classic one day in the hall of games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One my Favorite Games I have dozens of HOPA games, and this is one of my all time favorites. It had some of the prettiest graphics and involved game play I have encountered. Despite what some reviews have alleged, there is no anti-christian content. The creativity of this game bears up under repeat play and the puzzle challenge kept me very engaged. The voice acting is better than average, but if it annoys you, you can turn it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unlike any other game - VERY underrated This is still one of my very favorite HOPAs. That's saying a lot, because I play HOPAs a *lot*. I'm shocked the reviews aren't higher for this one - on par with Nevertales in my opinion (albeit quite different). So creative, beautiful, different, endearing, engaging - the story is great, the gameplay is great. I just can't say enough good things about this one. The developers went out on a limb and put a lot of love into this one. You can't say it isn't different!!! And for me, that was in a very, very good way. NOTE: I am pretty sensitive to violence, in particular violence against women, but I do not agree with reviewers that were disturbed by the description of the woman who was killed. I also do not agree that this is offensive to Christians unless you are just against any pagan themes (which is totally fine if you are, but that's not the same as saying the game is anti-Christian and in my opinion is not a reason to give it a bad review). It is, however, fairly anti-Puritan...but, ummm, I guess you'd be bothered by that if you actually support the very real horrors that the Puritans enacted on innocent women 300 years ago, which is when those events took place in the story. In other words - some Puritans DID do things like what is depicted in this story (witch trials, anyone?) I don't understand how that pertains to modern-day Christianity. Plenty of people from every religion (and non-religions) have been cruel and intolerant at times. This is simply a fictitious rendition of the dark, yet historically accurate, side of some of the Puritans in that particular time period. Lastly, that aspect is a VERY minor part of the overall game. It is so bright and whimsical and charming, yet serious and emotionally moving somehow at the same time - it really is unlike any other game I've played.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNUSUAL AND BRILLIANT!!!! My review based on full game and additional game play This is absolutely great game. UNUSUAL TWISTS in any element of game. Advanced players already know logic of the game, Where and what to look for or what items to apply, how hit button works, voice overs etc. Many games are done by the same matrix. no one tried to make a changes. But these developers are done totally great job. Let's start from story line - absolutely unusual, and SURPRISING. The story keeps your interest and give your excitement until the end and you REALLY don't know what's happened next. Girl has to go into mysterious Cyclopes city following her boyfriend. Totally honest - the twist of the story excellent BUT the reason is missing. still it's very vague to me why the boyfriend of this girl has to be stolen by a woman who summoned this young couple. and the result of it - she wanted to get married to someone she doesn't know.... BUT what I really loved the way we are "receiving" the story from 3 sources: main character Edvine (she's talking time to time to herself), some find manuscripts written in old English (which give the story teast of ancient history) AND THE HINT BUTTON who's not just a hint button BUT a character of the game Rugo. This is one of the unusual things I loved - talking hint button - the actual character who's saying or advising things not when I ask for it, giving some little comments on the actions like a real companion, and at the end getting married and united in heaven. LOVE THIS OUTSIDE THE BOX TWIST. The story itself is very fascinating. Graphics and music are excellent. Puzzles are with different level of complications. some are very easy, some are very complicated. HOC are nice... and just exactly in the place where they needed, and not just because they have to be and make a game play time longer. That's what I don't like from many developers. Additional game play a little strange... firstly... practically no link to the main story. secondly... well... odd. frozen Seraphim is a beacon of children souls into the darkness because he's frozen one... odd... and there's no clear explanation for that I wouldn't miss additional game play but anyway it was worth it :-))) My suggestion - GAME MUST HAVE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Model for What Casual Games Can Be This is a superior game for several reasons. First, the artwork is carefully done, so visually the world of the game is more immersive than most. I noticed that the hidden object scenes are not junkpiles, but visually consistent with the world created. There was also an attention to detail that also seems missing from most games. For example, in the hidden object scenes where one of the background objects was a doll, I noticed that the doll was rendered as cyclopean, consistent with the main characters of the game itself. A small thing, perhaps, but it says much about the care that went into the game. Second, the gameplay is outstanding. While there are imperfections with the game's mechanics, overall the adventure-part of this game comes closer than the vast majority of other HO adventure games to the gold standard set by games like Myst, and the puzzle-part of the game provides different levels of challenge, but doesn't sink so low as to be insulting. Third, the game does something that casual games rarely do (unfortunately)--treats the players as adults. Rarely is there any complexity or texture to the characters and events created for these games. While I would not say that this game rivals Shakespeare in the writing, this game is superior to the typical shallowness and illogic that mark most of these types of games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Wow Wow!!! This is my current favourite game. I've never played such an original game. The characters are original and quirky and the puzzles are new and different. I loved the companions that you gain along the way. Especially the mechanical spider-so cute! It was such a magical beautiful world-I didn't want to leave. I have nothing bad to say about this game. LOVED it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a remarkable game This won't be everybody's cup of tea. It is a quiet and complicated game, full of difficult puzzles, creativity, and a feeling of other-wordliness and majiks. It has two complicated but helpful maps to negotiate the world which is helpful because there is a lot of backtracking, but just like the slow sigh each time you use the hint button, each back-track does not feel so burdonsome to the right player. Play the full demo first, and make sure you want to enter into this 2nd to last game of this series, which just keeps getting better, and this one is the best of Margave so far. It is a long and lyrical adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT...WONDERFUL...TERRIFIC The graphics in this game are seriously beautiful. The storyline is imaginative & whimsical, as are the characters you meet. This is a loooong game with a lot of mini-games and some HO'S. There are two maps but they really weren't helpful. You'll have to rely on your memory how to get where. The bonus game was okay but not worth the extra cost. The main game is fantastic & worth the price . My tip for the day - GO FOR IT !!
