I was actually quite looking forward to playing this game. The second game in the series was actually my first HO game and my first by Artifex Mundi. So the series holds a special place in my heart. 🙂 Coming out just last year, I can tell the improvements over the previous installments. The artwork seems to be better and the hidden object puzzles seem to be more involved. I really enjoyed the opening sequence to the game but was a little let down there wasn’t more like that throughout the rest of the game.

Official Synopsis:

Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala is the final chapter in the blockbuster trilogy: an exciting detective story rife with adventure, puzzles, and ancient mystery. The demonic preacher has escaped to the remotest mountains in pursuit of a grim secret that could give him ultimate power. He has already eluded the investigation of the protagonist detective and her partner Hamilton twice: once in Maple Creek, and again in Ravenwood. It’s no mystery that this time it’s personal. After returning to Maple Creek and uncovering new evidence about the preacher’s enigmatic plan, the two detectives set out in search of a centuries-old monastery hidden high in the breathtaking mountains where the immortal preacher’s lifelong quest for world domination could finally meet its sinister end. What is hiding in the ancient monastery that clings to upper reaches of the snow-covered mountain? What nightmarish secret is the preacher looking for there? Drawn into this ancient struggle between the forces of light and darkness, the detective must defeat the ominous preacher at any cost. Will they even be able to stop him now that he’s more powerful than ever before?
