I didnt see a Review for this game here at Boomers so,
I wanted to Write a Short Review for this Game, smile

It was a First Person Point and click Game,
where you play two people. Daphne and Dominic.


It had Very little Animation, there was a few cut
scenes and no Voice Acting.
There was music that changed with the rooms you
entered into, It is set in an older plantation home
in The Swamp lands of Louisiana, there was some
exploration of the swamp and an Island, but most
of the game was spent in the home.
Another Con is it was to short. I would of liked
More puzzles, and game time.

Now for the Pros...
It had a GREAT Plot and Story. Well worth
the Play for me, I found it Engaging and kept me playing
all the way through.
The Puzzles were good, a bit on the easy side, though
I still enjoyed them. (sometimes Its nice to play a
game where there is a good flow to it) keeps me engaged in
the story.

I received this Game in a Trade a few months ago, and
it was worth it. I would recommend this game to anyone
that would like to get into a Story with some fun/easy
puzzles... I am not sure if it would be classified
as a casual Game or not, I would think so? Its a lot like
some of the causal games I have played, It reminded me
a little of the Dream Chronicles..that I just finished.
Where you find items that helped you start or finish
puzzles. Hope you enjoy it , if you Play it also. smile

This is a great contribution from an Indie game developer. If you look at the credits, you will see that Gameboomers own Inferno was a big part of the game development. You might also see a few other familiar names too!

I've played this game several times over. The puzzles are a lot of fun and not difficult. It's a very relaxing game. Thanks for the review, Marcia!
