Artifex Mundi proudly presents Enigmatis: The Shadow of Karkhala, the final chapter in the blockbuster Enigmatis trilogy.

The demonic Preacher has escaped to the remotest reaches of Tibet in pursuit of a dark secret that could give him ultimate power. He first escaped the Detective and her partner, P.I. Richard Hamilton, in Maple Creek, and then again at Ravenwood Park. This time, it is personal.

After returning to Maple Creek and uncovering new evidence about the Preacher’s plan, the two detectives set out in search of a centuries-old monastery hidden high in the mountains of Tibet, where the immortal Preacher’s lifelong search for world domination could finally meet its end.

Drawn into this ancient struggle between the forces of light and darkness, the detectives must defeat the Preacher at any cost. But will they be able to catch him before it is too late? Will they even be able to stop him if they do, now that he is more powerful than ever? What secrets will they find in the shadows of Karkhala?

Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game so far, out of one of my favorite series! I enjoyed the Enigmatis Series (thus far) a lot. They go: 1. Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek 2. Enigmatis: The Mists of Ravenwood (my least favorite) 3. Enigmatis: The Shadow of Karkhala Typically, I prefer fantasy games (fairy tale types, like Dark Parables, for example), but this (somewhat) realistic series appealed to me for its logical approach (the things you do MAKE SENSE! As do the puzzles, and even the hidden object scenes). And I enjoy the Evidence Board. It's a simple thing, but fun. Even more important, I like a good story and voice acting, and this series has both. Especially this one. I really appreciate when developers put extra effort into storytelling, voice acting, music, etc... To me, these are the most important factors in whether or not I enjoy a game. I can forgive almost any annoying game element, if the story captures my attention. This one did. I recommend this game and hope you enjoy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful game This game was a pleasure to play. The visuals and sound added so much to the already great story, you really can't ask for more from a game. The puzzles were fun and interesting and tied into the story very well, All in all, this game is a great value and lots of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just gets better and better! The sequels are just as good as the first and I always get so engrossed in the story! It never disappoints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality hidden object adventure Although I didn't enjoy this as much as the first Enigmatis, this is a very high-quality HO/Adventure game with excellent graphics, music and cutscenes and a good variety of gameplay types. The story is fairly straightforward and the locations are not all that varied, and some people may be put off by the mix of religious imagery, but otherwise, this game is worth your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! Loved everything about this game! There was a lot of interaction with other characters, more so than in other games, which I found fun and interesting. I've played so many HOGS so I appreciate when there is something new and different. Loved having music play throughout the game. Why don't all games have that? Otherwise you're just sitting there in silence. I don't really care about the level of challenge in a game (unless it's super hard or confusing). You can always use the hint or skip button. This game was a medium challenge for me. Overall, a fun game, worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Boring More games should be like this. Puzzles were worked seemlessly into the story/gameplay, which makes the game more exciting. I recently fell out of love with the "Dark Parables" series, due to the fact that they use the same kind of HO puzzles for every game—which needless to say gets pretty boring. I thought this was a great conclusion to the fight against the Preacher. Other pros: Beautiful artwork (seriously) I actually liked the voice actors for once Opening gameplay sequence was awesome Con: *Spoilers!!!* I thought the inclusion of the white, blond haired, Judeo-Christian angel was kind of odd/off-putting to me. Karkhala seemed like it was based off of Tibet (especially when you look at the architecture, and clothing, etc.), so I personally would've rather seen a spiritual figure that fit in with Karkhala's seemingly Eastern culture, rather than one from Western culture. Other than that… I have no cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on FULL gm + bonus play. Here are details after the demo... ********************May contain a spoiler******************* Standard Edition took me 5 hours Bonus play took 1 hour (I always play on custom mode and complete ALL hidden object scenes, and as many mini games as possible. I finished 19 of 22 mini games, which is huge for me, as I usually am not a huge fan of the mini games and prefer the HOS) TOTAL GAME PLAY: 6 HOURS I bought + played all three games in this trilogy from start to finish. I loved all of them. Enigmatis, Mists of Ravenwood was my favorite. All three of these games make use of game play in gorgeous locations. You aren't just rambling around an interior location you've seen a million times. There is not much fantasy in this game.... thank goodness. I have seen WAY to much fantasy this past year. You do see a winged "bird monster" (and in the 2nd edition, Mists of Ravenhood, there was an equally stupid flying monster-crow# but the bird ties in with this rather involved story and is the symbol of good, and Archangel Raphael. There is a part in the demo where you are looking down, and through, a crashed plane. It reminded me of the PS3 game Uncharted, where Drake hung from a bus. I was blown away how well this area was drawn and the perspective was perfect. Looking over a cliff down on rushing water will make you catch your breath as you watch a hawk fly UNDER you and realize how high up you are. GRAPHICS- Normally I can't stand hand drawn graphics and prefer the computer gen, due to clarity. But this game is like playing in an oil painting. The colors are bright, locations are gorgeous, and each new scene that came I would find myself "wowed" further. I absolutely LOVED how they kept the game gorgeous despite the fact the subject matter was dark. HOS, MGs and alternatives: The hidden object scenes are a mix. It has my favorite "list find" with 2 steppers. I did NOT notice and of the silhouette type --which I just can’t stand. The ALTERNATIVE TO HOS is MATCH GAME. Since the HOS are my FAVORITE part of a hidden object game, I only played it once to see what it was like. It was SO much better then match 3.... too bad it wasn't an alternative to the mini games, which I am not always so fond of. CHARACTERS: These characters are so perfect they need their own title head. The same voice overs are back from the other games in this series and are some of the best I have ever heard. They speak from where they ARE within the scene. It made the game seem more real for me. MY FAVORITE PARTS IN GAME: I loved this demo, so chapter 1 and --standard for me--Chapter 3. I am a major Tomb Raider fan, and chap 3 reminded me of "Lara land". You play in mountainous locations; outside, and in the woods some. By chapter 4 you are in a snowy region and the game turns darker. I don't like playing through snow and rain as it messes with the graphics for me. Even though the game is darker here, you are NOT in some “weirdly aqua world” which was a huge plus. Chapter 5 has a great mini game. It is page 52 of the strategy guide. It is super fun. You need to prepare and powder color several shades of Jade and paint an artifact with them. Chapter 5 also had a terrific mini game across several locations using a metal detector to find objects. It was so super fun. NO DIARY: Evidence board instead. If I EVER saw a more convoluted storyline in a game in need of a notebook, it was this one. The evidence board did not really refresh the story than it did further the game. Occasionally you find a random notebook lying around that does explain the story a pinch more. BONUS PLAY: The final chapter was kind of a bummer for me. You play 9 areas. 6 of the 9 are revised from the final chapters of the SE. The 3 new areas are very pretty though so I am glad I got the CE. They include a cave which was a gorgeous room, a secret chapel & a narrow path. I REALLY loved this series and will probably replay the second Enigmatis so I can play the bonus since I'd only purchased the SE for that edition and wished I'd got the CE. There are 4 HOS in bonus play and 6 mini games. There is NO MAP in bonus and NO MORE COLLECTIBLES in bonus play. Though you still have that useless task book...geez I can't stand those task books. The storyline in bonus play happens in the period just before, and overlaps a pinch of when the timing of the demo starts. It has an awesome initial cut scene where I'm talking to Jenny. My character is BB #Britney#. Fang's father and Fang are in bonus too. TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA HOW LONG BONUS IS: Chap 1 is 11 pages, Chap 2 is 5pgs, Chap 3 is 11pgs, Chap 4 is 13pg, Chap 5 is 12p, Chap 6 is 4pgs, & bonus is 11pgs. CE GOODIES: 9 DL music tracks 12 concept art which is only viewable, not DL. Replay 8 beautifully done cut scenes, There is an in- game strategy guide and bonus play took me about an hour. The ending of the Standard Edition is really powerful. You see Archangel Raphael, and a fight between good and evil. IF YOU LIKED THIS GAME: You will probably like: Mystery Tales, Her own eyes Whispered Secrets, Ever burning candle Grim Tales, The Wishes Also try Haunted Hotel, Charles Dexter Ward --an older game, maybe without a map, but a must see. I want to thank Big Fish Games and Artifex Mundi. This game is like playing in a gorgeous oil painting. It was perfectly done. You gave me hours of happiness and I'll be sure to play this one again!! Please give me a screen saver next CE. If you make them, I’ll keep buying them--I have just shy of 400 games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Key To Defeating The Preacher May Be Smaller Than You Think! I remember waking up in the tiny town of Maple Creek dazed and confused. The entire town had been torn to shreds by a violent tornado, and my memories were fuzzy. Slowly I began to remember why I was sent to Vermont in the first place, to investigate the disappearance of a young teenage girl. What I found was unfathomable, I had found the bodies of several missing persons dating back over 80 years! The person responsible for these atrocious murders was even harder to imagine, a Preacher! The Preacher's history is one of evil, who'll stop at nothing as he prepares to become the unholy vessel and resurrect the ancient demon, Asmodai. It sickens me that the Preacher managed to escape. Nearly a year later, I encountered the Preacher near the Redwood Forest in Northern California. I have learned so much about Asmodai who was slain by the Archangel Raphael during the great battle. Asmodai followers, called Reapers followed him into immortal oblivion. Raphael ordered all Reapers to be killed using a ceremonial dagger, and their numbers dwindled from 12 strong to a mere 2 The Preacher is one of those Reapers, but unfortunately, once more the Preacher managed to escape! After returning to Maple Creek, I have found new evidence about the Preacher's nefarious plans which has led myself and detective Richard Hamilton to an ancient monastery, nestled high in the mountains of Tibet. The Preacher is now the last of the Reapers and is prepared to resurrect his unholiness, Asmodai! There is no room for error now, the ceremony must not take place, the Preacher must die for the world to live! The Shadows of Karkhala is my least favorite in the Enigmatis series, partially because of the location, but mostly because the game lost that eerie vibe that it's predecessors had. The graphics are good, but again, it's too bright and cheery for the plot. Your evidence is now kept on your smartphone, which is a vast improvement from the hotel wall right? This is the game that made the evidence board famous, where pieces of evidence, notes and clues are kept and sorted out to draw conclusions on the ongoing case. The Collector's Edition is loaded with extras like 15 hidden White Feathers, hidden Widow's Sorrow Flowers, and my favorite feature, Morphing Stains of Evil, tainted reality souls, the corrupted souls and their foul deeds! There are also several Achievement categories available, so for me, the CE was the perfect choice. The Hidden Object Scenes are decent although they are far and few between. They are mostly Interactive Listed item finds, but there are also matching pair finds, finding items that match the pictures and some HOP's that are more like Mini Games. The Mini Games, however are in abundance, the following are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo, as well as some noteable puzzles afterwards: 1) Place the rungs in the proper sockets to climb the pole following the pattern. 2) Move the dagger along the pathways so it passes through every hub once. 3) Click disks to create an image. 4) Narrow down evidence and locations from clues. 5) Find the landmarks listed in the notes and draw a circle around them. Each circle's radius should equal the distance given in the note using a compass. 6) Click on the tree trunk to balance the pole left or right. 7) Arrange the books using the photo as reference details, then push books in the right order. 8) Pair the symbols from the dictionary with those in the chronicle to translate it. 9) Follow directions on a map to choose the correct path. 10) Make the distiller work by rotating and connecting pipes of the same color. 11) Move all the junk blocking the water wheel by interacting with the scene, (could also be considered a HOS) 12) Guide the ball through a labyrinth maze. 13) Swap tiles so that each head matches it's surroundings. 14) Ascend the wall by finding each handhold rock as shown. 15) Take loose pieces from each wall and place them in the opposite wall X3. 16) Toggle the symbols on the buttons so that each grate bar has the same symbol, by following the connections correctly. The Collector's Edition has replayable Pair Matching games, collectible Widow's Sorrow Flowers and White Feathers, Morphing Objects, 8 Cutscenes, 9 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 6 replayable Puzzles, 5 Music Soundtracks, 14 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art pictures, several Achievement categories, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of interaction This game has a lot more interactivity than we usually get. The other character seems to respond to my actions, as if I am talking to another person. Usually if an animated character is in the room it just ignores you. This character responded as if there were actually two of us in the room. How cool is that? There are lots of videos: at least at the beginning. I only played the trial version. It starts out with lots of action as you try to save your and your friend from a doomed aircraft. Definitely try this one out or buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Even Finished But Had to Write a Review I don't typically write reviews that often, and never before I've finished playing a game, but this time I had to. All I can say about this game is "Wow!" Out of the couple hundred of these that I've played, this is the first time I can remember being sucked into the action right from the start. The cut scenes are brilliant, and this time you're not simply watching. You have to start solving problems immediately. That just really gets the adrenaline flowing. Not only are the visuals great, but so are the voice actors. While the story is slightly predictable, it's not enough to take away the fun factor. The games are also well thought out, not overly tough but enough to be challenging at times. I used my free game coupon to get this game, but I really wish I'd gotten the CE now. I will be sad to see this one end. Can't wait to see what the developers come up with next after this series ends. Get this game! You won't regret it.
