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.
