If you are looking for a great point and click ghost story for Halloween, I really enjoyed Goetia. You can play a one hour demo here. I believe it is only available at STEAM.

http://playgoetia.com/

I wondered what the word Goetia meant... from Wikipedia:

"Goetia is a practice that includes the invocation of angels or of demons, and use of the term in English largely derives from the 17th-century grimoire The Lesser Key of Solomon, which features an Ars Goetia as its first section. It contains descriptions of the evocation of seventy-two demons, famously edited by Aleister Crowley in 1904 as The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King."

Really fantastic game. It Has kind of a casual feel to it but it's pretty challenging.

Hi,

those of you who have played Goetia, I would like to hear a little bit more detailed desription what kind of game it is, what the gameplay includes, how long it is etc.

There's currently Square Enix Publisher Weekend on Steam and Goetia is included with 75% discount.

There's also Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration Edition available with 60% discount for those of you who also enjoy action adventures.

There is an hour demo linked in Drac's post, TJL. THat may help you decide better than other opinions. The 3.74 pricetag is a good deal!

I play it now - it is quite long and interesting!
Very similar to 'Whispering Willow' in story and looks, but has some original mechanic as for handling the inventory.

Thanks Iurii and BrownEyedTigre! smile

I finally decided to buy it 'blind'.

I do believe it will definitely be worth for the nominal price 3.74 €.

Others interested, do hurry, there's less than 5 hours left with such price.
