Does anyone know if this story is based on an actural location in England? Some of the graphics look so realistic, that they could pass for a photograph. The ornate carving inside the church is incredible.

This is the best adventure game in a long time, it has everything. Lou

Sorry dragon44 but I think you will find that Saxton village is based on a small fishing port called Polperro, here in southeast Cornwall, about 4 miles down the coast from where I live.
A boat trip to Polperro is a must for all our family when they visit so I know it quite well.
Where the churches are?? A mystery to me but maybe someone else recognises them.
The antique shop is here in Looe, Cornwall but does not look the same inside.
I would suggest people google Polperro to see what a delightful place it is. Check on the pictures of people who have tried to take there cars up the narrow lanes. Quite unbelivable rotfl
I have not been to Norfolk for about 35years but my maybe faulty memories of the beaches are flat with lots of sanddunes and views for miles and miles. The Fens, however are just as I remember.
Well done to Jonathan for making the the mixture work so well.
I have only been near to tears in 2 games - 1 was Syberia 2 with
Click to reveal..
the dismantaling of Oscar
and the other is with the children in this game. To say I find it totally immersing would be an understatement

Hi old lady -- I've added a spoiler tag for people who haven't played Syberia 2.

Maybe I don't want to play Syberia 2 now. How could they? How could they? cry

Old lady is right. See here on the developer's website.
For some other places incorporated into the game, see here.

May be thre are 2 then .If you go to the link you can even see the tower that is in the game.Apparently there is a Saxton in the USA TO Saxton is a small village in North Yorkshire, England. Resident population is about 250, it is close to the battlefield of Towton (War of the Roses). Saxton is about 15 miles from York and about 12 miles from Leeds. The site deals mainly with Saxton England but has links to Saxton PA, USA.

Back to what Doffy90 mentioned earlier, I didn't mind the statements/questions staying as it helped when I needed to get things in the right order. I also didn't mind the 'pictures' as the game world, (the Carol Reed games do the same thing and it's great. I'd rather see that than bad art or obvious cartooning in these games). I also wanted to ask if anyone noticed an obvious face somewhere in the gameworld? I did and found it very fascinating. I want to know if it was intentional and if so, who it is?

Your memories aren't faulty at all! I live on the Norfolk coast, and yes, it's flat, flat, flat. The sand dunes are about as hilly as it gets around here - stand on top of one for a guaranteed adrenalin rush! lol

No,no Becky, it was me assumming, in a rather arrogant way, that any one on this site would have played Syberia 2 oops I should have put the spoiler in myself.
Bubbajake, I'm intriqued and am now trying to 'spot the famous face'

I did not want it to end.

Bummer.

Did anyone else experience the glitch with the walkie-talkie? It threw me back to an earlier part of the game not once but twice. I should have learned my lesson the first time! The patch doesn't appear to cure this problem.
