provides more details about the game. Apparently it's not a prequel.
Thanks for the link, Marian.
Yes, as stated before, it's not a prequel -- it's a complete reboot.
They got the rights to the name and are making something completely different.
I think people here wanted to believe it was a prequel because they wanted to believe the new game would be like the older ones.
But it's pretty clear now that it has nothing in common with the older games but the name, and perhaps the appearance of the Black Mirror castle.
I think that this kind of gameplay isn’t the most important element for a lot of adventure players anymore.
Because that idea worked so well with Syberia 3...
...and they got terrible reviews and had to patch it later.
#%*@^! console port.
