Quote:
Embark on a thrilling rescue mission in Margrave: The Blacksmith's Daughter! The town of the Cyclops appears for a single day once every three hundred years, on an island lost to cartographers. On this Day of Alignment, the town rises and sets with the midsummer sun. As the Margrave saga nears its devastating conclusion, Edwina Margrave embarks on a rescue mission into the town. Her only chance of escape is to return life to the arcane machines, and hope to the sole survivor of an ancient war, in Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter. Prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime: the legacy of an entire civilization depends upon your cunning and compassion.

Thank you, Ana - I have played the demo already. Some very entertaining puzzles in this game. It's another winner for me thumbsup

Thanks, Ana. If this game is anything like Margrave: Curse of the Severed Heart, I think I will probably like it very much. wave

Loved the opening movie. Very nice artwork as well. Have only played about 15 mins. of demo, but will probably buy this one. I also enjoyed the "Severed Heart" game.

I have purchased it without playing the demo. I haven't had time yet to start the game but reading all of the reactions it sounds like a good buy! I too liked "The Severed Heart". So hopefully this will be as good or better. wave

Let us know what you think, Marlene. I am downloading the demo now to take a look at it. Sparkle, if you buy the game, I would love to hear more of your impressions of it. wave

"As the Margrave saga nears its devastating conclusion", so is this the last of a series? I am a sucker for a serial. Haven't played any of the Margrave games. More adventure than HOG?

The first Margrave game was pretty much a straight HOG; the second game was somewhat more involved. I thought Curse of the Severed Heart (the third game) was by far the most interesting of the first three games. As far as I understand, this fourth game pretty much continues the story from the third game and the first two aren't really related to this storyline except having the same main character.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is right. smile

This game is too deep for me. Didn't get past the first 2 scenes. I uninstalled it. I played the others though and loved them. Oh well, there will be others. Experience tells me this.

Patsy, maybe I was just having an off day, but when I played the demo, other than finishing the HOG scene, I couldn't figure out how to solve any of the puzzles and had no idea what to do next. wave grin

The puzzles in the demo were indeed somewhat different to other games, but this is exactly what I liked about this game - it's individuality - some of the puzzles were very creative.

Interesting game. I am not familiar with the previous games. During my initial "attack" with the demo, I, too, found the puzzles quite "puzzling" but, kept going on into new scenes because I found it all refreshingly different. Left the demo unfinished for a few days and just came back to finish the demo. Still undecided, I read the above reactions to the game. Conclusion: I never buy collector's editions...but, I WILL buy this game when it is released as a regular. Can't put my finger on it all but there are things about this game that are very compelling and its very complexity makes it interesting. Yes, some of the puzzles take a bit of thought...but, isn't that the whole purpose?

I myself dont buy CEs - but for sure I will buy the SE when it is released. I think it is totally refreshing to be confronted with new puzzles, instead of the old ones we have all seen a hundred times before. Kudos to the creators, I say bravo

There was a nice interview with the developer of the Margrave games which you can read here; it was posted on the Big Fish Games blog. wave
