Quote:
Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, the Loch Ness Monster - cryptozoologists are trying to track these creatures down and research them. One also appears in the legends of the Ashanti people in Ghana. These tell of human-like creatures that lurk in the trees at night and take their victims off to their caves to suck their blood: the Asanbosam. Right after journalist Sam Peters has escaped from a volcanic eruption on an Indonesian island caused by terrorists, her boss sends her to Africa. Soon enough, strange things start happening at Bosumtwi, a mysterious crater lake. Could the Asanbosam really exist? Sam Peters is searching for the answers in this thrilling tale of the Secret Files series.

I am enjoying the sounds and the graphics of this game, even though it might(as been stated here), be short.

I just bought the game from STEAM, installed it, and it's working really great on my WIN XP machine.
Now I'm just waiting for MAG. LOL

A physical retail version is only available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland per Deep Silver. Hope you are in one of those areas.

I think this was discussed before but I don't really remember. Isn't this an episodic adventure? For the price it must be. Also how many total episodes are there? I don't see any information on the web site.

I'm also wondering why, if episodic, there is no season pass option as in other of this type.

I would much rather wait out the total of all episodes and play it as one game.

Only just started this but what struck me straight away is what a fantastically slick and quick game engine they use. Quick screen load times and fade in and fade outs, whilst still there are fast and smooth. A joy to play. Contrast this with a couple of other games I've played recently (Cognition, The Raven) which , whilst I enjoyed them they are somewhat spoilt by their engine.

The Raven, which I really enjoyed was marred by being a resource hog. I had to turn the resolution down to the minimum and even then it was awful, with p.a.i.n.f.u.l.l. screen load times, sloooow fade in/fade outs and sluggish performance in general.

Cognition, again I've enjoyed the episodes Ive played but the engine was a bit ropey. At times some really bad animation. I always put this down to the fact that it seemed to get it's production values from the casual genre rather than the traditional adventure.

I'll agree with you on The Raven, mj2c. It was as slow as molasses. Good to hear that Secret Files performs well.
