Do you like the Carol Reed games? Then you will love The Artifact...and its FREE!

This free indie game was brought to my attention at another Forum and after playing it I must say I hope the developer would keep up the good work with another game. The Artifact was released a year ago and the developer has said that he is working on the sequel.

Like the Carol Reed games this one is done with actual photos of the Swedish countryside in a point & click, first person perspective. Give it a try and let us know what you think. You can download the game Here.

Downloaded it, played it, and liked it!

It doesn't have the polish of Carol Reed but for a free game it's great. I hope the developer continues to make games as there's a lot of promise here.

I really liked the developers use of movement in some of the photos that brought them to life. Moving curtains and he did a terrific job on water movement. I especially liked the lifelike stream on the way to the cottage. It looked and sounded just like a real stream. It also looked like he experimented in a couple of places with 360 degree panning. Looking forward to the sequel.

That was a nice touch indeed. I sometimes feel full 360 panning is not always needed in some games which use it at every screen. It's useful for orientation where you have many directions you can go, but using it sparingly is a good move.

I was very impressed by the moving water. I did think the orientation became confusing at some points especially in the mountains, but that is probably something that comes with experience. Oh and the sound of the doors opening was... yeah smirk

As a demo, I'd certainly buy a game based on this work.

Mad, hum, you are not getting the same page I do.

You should get the Deposit files page and see 2 round dials, one GOLD and one regular.

I hope you can get it.

Mad, I had the same, I guess is something up just for UK.
This is what you have to do: when the screen with the payment request comes up, just close it clicking on the red cross in the right upper corner. You will be back on the main page and this time you will be able to download the game without any further hassle.
