Quote:
Buenos Aires, August 5 2015: Lost Spell Studio has released their opera prima "Hidden: On the trail of the Ancients" on Steam.

Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/352580

Immersed into dark and unexplored ancient woods a group of expeditioners goes deep in search of an old, almost forgotten legend, the "Legend of the Ancients". But not everything goes as planned as the place keeps a never revealed horrifying secret.

You play the game as Thomas Farrell, a young anthropologist and one of the expeditioners behind the search of evidence about the Legend of the Ancients.
Thomas traveled to Buenos Aires, where an old colleague of his uncle Eneko seems to have found an important trail to the Ancients.
His investigations start in an old boarding house and soon he will realize that there is something hidden beyond the legend.

Hidden is a high-res, atmospheric first person horror point n' click adventure game with focus on story, puzzles and exploration. The storyline is split into two games: On the trail of the Ancients and The Untold.

Key Features
• Rich and mature Story, strengthened with docs, books, audio records and visual elements along the adventure.
• Classic Point n' click gameplay.
• Intriguing and immersive detailed high-res locations set in the 30s.
• Story oriented puzzles.
• Original and gripping score for each location.
• In-Game detailed collectibles to enhance to the story.
• Horror fiction inspired by writers such as Algernon Blackwood and H. P. Lovecraft.


Happy Gaming!

The game should be popping up on Just Adventure Store today and they hope to have it show up on other portals in the future.

I have played into this game for about an hour and for those who are curious...my feeling of this game so far can be described as...
Dark Fall meets Loath Nolder meets Barrow Hill meets Baron Wittard meets Scratches. thumbsup

Wow !! That's some appraisal, GreyFuss !! happydance

EDIT :

I only just noticed that the story appears to be being told over two games redface
So is "Hidden" a totally separate second "chapter" which is still to be released ??

I had read that too Mad. I was encouraged by them stating that the story would be told over 2 games and not say anything about chapters or episodes. What I am hoping they mean by this is like the two Syberia games where although the first one came to a conclusion the second game continued the story. At least that is my hope. I have been playing more and my original feelings still stand as stated above... Dark Fall meets Loath Nolder meets Barrow Hill meets Baron Wittard meets Scratches.

Thanks, BrownEyedTigre. A clarification would be most welcome smile

As for voting for it at GOG ....
I listed it myself, earlier today, in the hopes that amongst the thousands already on there, someone might see it and add a vote !! lol

EDIT :

So I've been back and reported a "duplicate" now grin

Well I have finished the game chapter and although I stick with how the game feels as I stated above, the game is veeeeeery short and does not conclude anything. If the second game chapter is the same length then even both together would amount to a short game in my book. Very let down right now as I assumed I would be wrapped up in the game for a while but alas no. Bummer as it showed much promise. sad

I will hang out in the Hints Forum if anyone needs a nudge but be advised that help will only quicken an already short game.
