Definitely, Sanford laugh

I, too, very often have a few games on the go at the same time - but wading through all three of these Black Mirrors I have "contained" myself this time !! lol

Well I am very much liking The Black Mirror 3 !!!! thumbsup

Not remembering much of it at all from my original play, it has been like a new game for me - and is fast becoming my favourite of the series yes

I liked the first one best -- the only one made by Future Games.

Of the 2nd two Black Mirror games (both made by Cranberry Productions), I liked the 3rd one a lot better. The 2nd one seemed to take half the game to get started. Despite that Lovecraft-type stories often take place in New England, I thought the depiction of New England in Black Mirror 2 was very bland and ordinary, and half the game is over before you get out of New England and get to the Black Mirror Castle environment. Even then, the atmosphere wasn't as good as in the first Black Mirror, and I think that is mainly due to the better background sound and music in the first Black Mirror.

As far as games go, the 2nd two games were more stable, and didn't have situations like getting eaten by the wolf because you'd used too many bullets earlier.

Oh, I do still like the first one myself Jenny100. It is an excellent example of how a good Adventure game could play out at that time yes

I found The story in Black Mirror 2 to be soooo slow to develop and, as you say, the game was nowhere near as atmospheric early on as it could have been whistle

But the more "modern" build up and execution of the story - as done in The Black Mirror 3 - is very much to my taste grin

I think the three together, though, do still make a darn good trilogy thumbsup

I appreciate that Cranberry made Black Mirror 2 and 3 as real adventure games. I just liked the first one better, and a lot of that was because of the sound design. I can appreciate that some people might like Black Mirror 2 or 3 better. I don't remember being eaten by a wolf in Black Mirror 2 or 3.

Cranberry also made Gray Matter, Mata Hari, and Lost Chronicles of Zerzura. I don't remember many people commenting on Lost Chronicles of Zerzura when it came out. I thought it was sort of like one of the Kheops games (like Secrets of Da Vinci or Nostradamus) only in 3rd person.

I wasn't that keen on either Gray Matter, Mata Hari, OR Lost Chronicles of Zerzura myself when they were released - although I think I might still have two of them.

So who knows ?? I might replay those two some day laugh

I was a beta tester for Gray Matter - while I enjoyed doing that; by the time the actual game was released I went "ugh - I can't face it again" smile

"ugh - I can't face it again"

That is what makes me wonder how people can write walkthroughs.

Interesting. I loved Gray Matter and consider it one of the better games I've played. I thought it was developed by Wizarbox, however. duh

Lost Chronicles of Zerzura was fun, but not nearly as good as the Black Mirror games. Mata Hari was frustrating for me. It had way too many mini games, and while the in between parts were okay, they weren't interesting enough to endure the numerous, annoying mini games a second time.

Actually I think you're right.
I was reading from a list at Mobygames
http://www.mobygames.com/company/deck-13-hamburg-gmbh

The other adventure games in that list do say Cranberry on the individual game pages, but Gray Matter does not, so I'm not sure why it's listed there.

I had a similar problem with the "magic" puzzles in Gray Matter. They were pretty much the same puzzle over and over, and I didn't like it the first time. The story was good though.

Although I wasn't too enamoured of the three games, I didn't totally dislike them.
But I did think Gray Matter was rather repetitious rolleyes
