Big Fish Editor's Choice! This title was chosen for its high standard of quality and amazingly positive reviews from our Game Club beta testers.

Domini Games proudly presents the newest addition to the Dark Romance series!

For years, Bluebeard has taken wives in the hopes of getting an heir. But each time a child is born, it turns into a monster! Now he's set his eyes on a local girl, Rachel to be his new bride. The fact that she's already betrothed means little to him. Can you help this young couple escape a dark fate before it's too late? Experience the magic of innovative story telling in this romantic hidden-object puzzle adventure!

See what our Beta testers had to say:

“I loved this game, enjoyed the diversity of the HOPs, loved being able to switch between characters, beautiful graphics and whilst the puzzles were very easy, there is the option of choosing to play them in HARD mode if you want more of a challenge - great for the advanced player. I will definitely be purchasing this game when it is released.”  - Jasmine, beta tester

“I really enjoyed the interactive items such as the ghost coming out of the grave, the chair material changing, the book falling off of the bookshelf, etc. That was fun. I like the choice of whether to play a puzzle in the easy or hard mode. I did the hard mode and was able to complete them. Rachel's voiceover goes well with the looks of her character- that made it believable. Also playing as two different characters was a nice twist. The graphics are beautiful and make the game so enjoyable. Looks like an excellent game.”  - Amanda, beta tester

Customer Reviews
Dark Romance: Curse of Bluebeard Collector's Edition is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good game for most... I bought this based on the high ratings and am not disappointed. It is a pretty good game for most and will be an enjoyable way to pass several hours. A couple of pros and cons... The balls at the bottom of the screen indicate whether there are morphing objects, spells, roses, or such in the area. This is not common for many games and is a big plus. I don't like it when I get to the end of the game and have missed one morphing object and can't get back. There are several characters that the game switches between. Some might not like this but I didn't mind. It was easy enough to follow. Some of the puzzles were way too easy (even playing on hard). A couple were not clear and really needed a bit more explanation. But there were a lot of them. And I do mean a lot. So if you like puzzles, this is a great game for you. There is no journal to go back to in order to remember who was who. Bluebeard had several wives and each had a kid. I couldn't tell you who belonged to whom at this point. This is a con in my opinion. The map is interactive. :-) The bonus game was similar to the main game in content. You can go back and play the puzzles after you've finished. Sometimes there are a couple that are a lot of fun so this is a definite pro. Happy game playing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Dark Hidden Object! I was enthralled in the beautiful visuals the second I started playing! At first, the story seemed a bit cut and paste, but as it developed it grew on me and felt more unique. The music was also very lovely. The gameplay itself was just the right level of challenge, though the minigames having an optional "easy" setting was sometimes a blessing, haha. I liked how unique the puzzles and games were, such as the underwater HOP, and that there was a match 3 choice for the HOPs, too. Overall it was a lovely game, and I can't wait to play past the demo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Twist on Bluebeard I was very surprised by this game, it had some very novel things in it including playing multiple characters and not being stuck in one role for the entire game. The graphics, music, and storyline were excellent. Though I would question the peculiar American Accent of the hunter in one scene when we were obviously playing in some somewhat medieval European place--I really have nothing to complain about. Good love story. Buy this one if you like ERS type horror/mystery games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Casual, not too intense This was a really nice game with good illustrations, not too scary of an environment and it's very easy to fall into. For those who like a mystery and play for fun puzzles that aren't too challenging. Though you can do the puzzles in hard mode, it doesn't compare to MCF or other more mind-intensive game play. I appreciate the approach. It's neither too crime-oriented nor too childlike. It hits the right note, somewhere in the middle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Fun, Fun! I had a lot of fun playing this game and isn't that what it's all about, fun?! Things I also like. Big help keeping track of your collectables. And I really like it when the "Features Only" Tutorial mentions what your collectables are. The ones that leave that out are really frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This game is amazing, I didn't want it to end. Ironically I didn't like it at the start, it took a little time to get into it. Everything about this game is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help save Richard and Rachel from Count Bluebeard!!! In this latest edition of Dark Romance you explore the infamous Bliebeard's curse in a new light in the next installment of the hit dark fantasy franchise. It's up to you help Richard save his lover Rachel from Count Bluebeard! You play dual roles of Richard and Rachel trying to save this young couple from falling prey to Bluebeard, the famous pirate who likes to force women to bear his monstrous children. The story follows the exploits of a young couple who are targeted by the evil Bluebeard, and they need help to keep him at bay. You mostly play the role of a brave hero trying to stop the famous pirate from wedding your beloved Rachel and you must use every trick in the book to do so. Moreover, all sorts of other obstacles stand in your way, and it’s important to deal with all of them. The story is full of unique characters with excellent voice acting and human emotion. Along your journey you meet Bluebeards sister Britta who was blinded by her brother yet hasn't lost faith in humanity and provides you with great assistance in your quest. You also meet the deceased wives of Bluebeard whom all of them he MURDERED, but they will assist you to in order to lay their souls to rest. Grace the mid-wife who delivered all of Bluebeards monstrous children also guides you along the way. Meredith, Bluebeards Aunt who raised him is especially helpful since she placed the curse on Bluebeard in the first place and you'll soon learn why. I haven't played such an intense HOPA in a very long time perhaps the best yet in 2016. Definitely one CE you have to have in your collection. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well crafted & fun - this game has it all... I now limit my reviews to those games that I feel are exceptional - and this dark romance of Bluebeard and his victims is that. Based on demo - It has everything- an engaging story, fitting music, romance, adventure, horror and even humor at times - good characters/voice acting - (have always loved that you play as both the hero & heroine in these Dark Romance games, switching back and forth as plot progresses. It keeps things fresh and fun.) Along with the usual CE bling, this game Includes 4 types of collectibles (roses, scrolls, statuettes and beasts, these last are morphs, and when you find them, there is a bit written about each one in the extras section, as well as the scrolls which are spells, and the statuettes of the characters. The roses to find are within the popup frames and they buy items in a boudoir). A panel of 4 circles above your inventory lets you know when there is a collectible to find in that scene and what type you are looking for. There is a Match 3 alternative for HOG scenes, easy/hard choice on mini games, great graphics, rich in color (beautiful at times, a bit frightening at others) ...I love that you can click on objects that aren't an actual part of gameplay and they do things! :D Had such fun clicking on the headstone and the ghost appearing. Also what happened with the stairwell by the knight in armor inside the castle - lol - that was great. A lot of these little surprises were, and I love how they are sprinkled everywhere. It's these little attentions to detail that really show the diligence of the devs. Be sure and click on everything, to see what might happen... ;-) This is a winner and a keeper - I will be purchasing. But don't take my word for it. Try the demo and see...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SPAWN OF BLUEBEARD Another child has been born cursed. (he was born with a blue beard I suspect) Count Bluebeard has vowed to end this horrible curse no matter what the cost. So he searches for a woman with the purest of souls, and demands she marry him, if she values her life. Rachel agrees to wed the horrible tyrant if he promises not to harm the love of her life, Richard, little does she know that's she's nothing but a brood mare to the count! Next! Only Dark Romance knows how to put the dark into romance. And only Dark Romance knows how to give us the perspective of two different characters. In this episode, you will play the handsome doctor to be, Richard who's fiance has just been stolen from him, and to add salt to the wound, has been wrongfully imprisoned. You also get to play as Rachel the beautiful and fair young maiden who has the purest of souls (not for long!) and had to choose to marry the count to save her fiance. Other devs may have tried, but Dark Romance has made the transitions between characters, flawless, and ever so interesting. I would love to see a third character added, wouldn't it be cool to play as Bluebeard as well? This Collector's Edition has all the bling you could ever want, or think you want for that matter! For starters there are 12 Morphing Bestiary animals and 13 Character Statuettes to collect. There are also 15 Collectible Spells and Journal Notes to find and 49 Collectible Roses that are used to purchase items such as paintings, flowers, and sofas to decorate the Boudoir. (the demo doesn't have this feature) Each of the collectibles have an icon that only light up when there is an available collectible in that category. The icons may light up but at least the cursor doesn't change whenever you scan the scene which make it more fun in my opinion when you actually have to look for them. There is also an icon of a locket with both Richard's and Rachel's pictures and when it's necessary to switch between them the locket will glitter. The Hidden Object Scenes are pretty decent and vary with many different types. I really enjoyed the locations of some of them, my favorite was underwater as you switched back and forth between taking an item out of the inventory bar and using them correctly, and the next item was a listed item to find in the scene. There are also the traditional Interactive List finds, Progressive, Interactive, Silhouetted Shape finds, Uncovering Matching Pairs of items, and another unique HOP where you had to Spot The Differences in items that were also reflecting in a mirror. Many of the HOP's have a small puzzle to solve within, and you can also opt to play a Match 3 game, which btw is a requirement for one of the achievements. The Mini Games could have been a little more creative, but they are available in two different modes of difficulty, Easy and Hard. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Rotate the discs to complete the image. Rotating some discs may affect others. 2) Rotate the circles to complete the image, rotating some circles may affect others. (I see a pattern here) 3) Place different items from the shelves into the picture to restore it. (what, placing one item doesn't affect another?) 4) Restore the portrait by rotating the tiles, rotating one tile may affect others. (aha! there it is) 5) Match the symbols on the door to the carving on the wood below, press the symbols to change it. Pressing one tile may affect others. (again, really?) 6) Repair the boat by placing patches within the outline, and rotate it by sliding the peg. Selecting one patch....(nope, just kidding) 7) Guide the cellar key through the labyrinth. 8) Untangle the ropes by dragging the pegs until no rope crosses another. 9) Rotate each circle to restore the picture, press arrows to exchange the circles. 10) Follow a recipe in the right order. 11) Untangle belts by removing them in the correct order. 12) Change all of the symbols on the board. Select the symbol you want to change and the symbol you want to change it to in a limited amount of moves. (should have affected the limited moves) This Collector's Edition has 15 Wallpapers, 23 Concept Art pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 30 Videos, 30 Achievements, 24 replayable Mini Games, 12 Morphing Bestiary and 13 Character Statuettes, 15 Collectible pages for The Book of Spells, 49 Collectible Roses, Boudoir items to purchase with roses, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Game. As per usual in this series, we play two characters Rachel and her betrothed, but Bluebeard is bent on marrying her instead. So off we go to try and stop Bluebeard's plan. The graphics, voices and music are very good. The map appears near the beginning of the game. It's very clear and transports you quickly. You receive a Journal which shows the next stage in the game. The HOS are very interactive and varied There are a lot of extras too - 30 Achievements. 18 Mini Games/Puzzles to replay. Book of Spells with 15 to find. A Boudoir to decorate. Collectibles: 49 Roses in 35 different locations. 15 Scrolls. 13 Statuettes of the cast to find. 12 Mysterious Morphing Animals which you can click on to read their bio, either when you've found them or in the extras.
