Hi Taintedfury. I played the Amaranthine Voyage series 1-2 years ago. Keep us posted if you can!

I started Lost Lands: The Golden Curse last night but only played for 35 minutes as it was quite late already, so no comment on it yet. I just wanted to get it started and have an idea what it was about.

Just finished playing Amaranthine Voyage: Legacy of the Guardians SE I throughly enjoyed playing this game as i enjoyed the storyline, the music was very adventurous thumbsup & my gosh heaps off puzzles to do...

I like the old Guardian man who had alot of wisdom about him, Sera was a very good character who assisted you & if it wasn't for Kato we wouldn't have the story...Great game smile

So what's everyone playing now?

I finished Dreadful Tales: The Fire Within which I thought was really good. For the last several days I have been playing Echoes of the Past: Kingdom of Despair CE and it's a very long game. I'm quite impressed with it. This game will last you a good while if you aren't skipping most of the puzzles.

I'm afraid my answer might get me kicked off the board here.

I'm still playing Lost Lands: The Golden Curse. I have been playing for about 14 hours, am still in the main game, and have used the guide maybe 3 times for a nudge. This is a long, tedious game and not really my definition of a fun casual game. frown

That's okay, oldbroad. I think of The Golden Curse as more of an adventure game than a casual game, and if you aren't in the mood for that sort of thing, I can understand why you might feel that way. There is a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and a player really needs to be up for that and have a lot of patience. I can see where something like that could start to weigh a person down. I found the game very challenging as I try not to use the map.

I just finished playing Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock. It was a game with great (though mostly "dark") artwork. The intricate and engaging plot involves the usual trope of someone mistreating a string of partners, and we have to step in to stop the madness, then restore the haunted souls. So, the action takes place mostly in dark, haunted places, etc. I suppose that is fitting, and if you are OK with darkness everywhere, it'll be fine.

The pluses are the many innovative designs, locations and excellent graphics! There is wonderful detail in everything, from the bark on trees to the petals of flowers and the atmospheric movement added to it, also. All well done, alive, engaging. However, there are very few animate characters in these worlds, neither animal nor human, except in the few cut scenes. No one to interact with at all.

One of the minuses of this game is due to the minutia involved, especially in the HO scenes. Most objects were depicted at what would be actual size, so imagine looking for a thimble or a peppercorn in a full screen of piled up stuff. ha ha I play on a 32" Envy and still had to resort to the Guide to find some of the smaller bits. I even brought out a magnifying glass to help on some scenes. It was almost as if the game didn't WANT you to find the objects. I gave up on more than one HO scene as being simply too much work.

There isn't a map, and this game is huge (four basic "stories" to be told, in four different locales). That was impressive all by itself. You'll have to remember how to get back and forth between places you had not visited for a day or so of playing. I didn't mind drawing a detailed map as I went along, as my career is design-related and I do art anyway, but this might daunt some others.

The game was definitely up to snuff, from my perspective. It features sliders, board games, rotation puzzles, a music puzzle (not too hard) and an HO scene in every location. I love complicated games like this one that make me take out the paper and pencil, calculator or even bring my cel phone into play (doing screen shots so I can study a puzzle closely). However, I doubt I will replay it. The bottom line is that it was way too much work sifting through all those very tiny items. Others may find it delightful. That is what is fun about these games.

I was very interested to read what you have to say about this game, Reenie. It is one that is in my Purchase History that I haven't played yet. What you said about it has definitely piqued my interest. Thank you for the reminder! wave
