I actually didn’t realize when I was playing this game that it was made by the same people as Hope Lake. Released only a month later than it on Steam, I actually felt the graphics looked like a vast improvement. I liked the world interface for objects, etc. a lot. It gave me a much better idea of what i needed to find; It was almost like each location was its own Hidden Object screen. The cut scenes at first were kinda neat, however as the story progressed I just started laughing. I didn’t skip the scenes because I was terribly amused by the deadpan voice acting and terrible plot. Also….whats with the terrible synopsis on steam? Very helpful for deciding if you want to play the game haha.

  • Released July 22nd, 2016 on Steam (PC)
