  1. Good narrative, but not much gaming
    by Hilde Dekesel, Belgium - Sep 15th 2014

    This "game" tells an interesting story, and its world is created to accompany this. Sadly, this makes it less of a game and more of an interactive movie. A mediocre one at that. Don't expect ANY puzzling.

  2. Great Game!
    by Emily Brazel, USA - Jul 25th 2014

    I love this game, honestly. It has a great plot, but it didn't earn five stars because once you complete the game (and it can be done rather quickly), there's nothing more to do. Granted, I've gone through 3 times and found journals the second and third time that I didn't find the first time I played through.

    Overall, a great game. I highly recommend you buy it.

  3. A exploratory mystery
    by benita, Australia - Jul 22nd 2014

    The basic premise is that you have to work out why no one is home when you arrive. The abandoned house is beautifully developed, with most objects being interactive. You can open all the cupboards and drawers and pick up most things. But you don't collect objects and solve puzzles like traditional adventures, you simply gather intel from each room to piece together what happened. There is lots of reading of notes and letters to do, and listening to the thoughts of the sister which are prompted by touching certain items. At first, it feels rather aimless, and I got to a point of not knowing what to do next and putting it aside for a while. But once you get access to the rest of the house, including the basement and the attic, the story moves into the final phase. It was worth persisting with, as the story was interesting and the ending was unforeseen. Overall I found it enjoyable to play, and loved the visuals a lot. I also loved the fact that there was no combat or time limits to interfere with exploring the house and discovering the secrets, unlike many games.
