Paranormal Crime Investigations: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake

Here is another game in the hidden object/adventure genre about some paranormal, supernatural activity. Paranormal Crime Investigations: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake's story is bloody and creepy, and the game is challenging and beautiful. There is a lot to enjoy as long as you don't mind all the darknes of the story. You play as a detective that is very skillful in the area of paranormal cases. A number of murders have happened in a city and the police is stuck. So you are the one to deal with it.

Nightmare Realm

Nightmare Realm Collector's Edition turned out to be a really nice adventure game and one of my favorite. The feature that totally loved about the game is how the gameplay is interwined with the story that unfold right before you. The words might not render the idea.There is no story at the beginning of game. You are a part of the story. The characters are talking to you, do some actions right there as you play. A big part of the game is animated, that creates a totally different feeling.

Tearstone

Most of the time the games from the hidden object/adventure genre tend to be full of mysterious events and creepy scenes. Tearstone is like a harmless version of that. You do meet different characters, some of which are dangerous, and you are involved in some kind of mysticism, but it is not scarry at all.So you get to play a friend of a professor. Your best friend, professor Haise, is on the verge of an amazing discovery and he asks you to help. Step into a whole new world, that will change your life forever, and follow your destiny in Tearstone, a fun hidden object game!

Emma and the Inventor

If you expect some drama, horror or great mystery, Emma and the Inventor is not for you. The game's story does have some unclear and challenging turns, but nothing extremely disgusting and terrifying and sick. This is a place for a nice pieceful quest. First of all you will have to interact with many items as you explore locations. Having said that the quest is pieceful, I didn't mean that there are no problems to solve here. You play as Emma, a young girl, who set out to visit her grandpa only to find him missing. You only know that something happened with him as he was testing a new machine.

Treasure Seekers: The Time Has Come

Tom and Nelly are not young children anymore. Since the first game in the series that was called Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold the kids have grown up. All the actions take place in 1930s. Nelly is busy deciphering Mayan hieroglyphs when she is suddenly kidnapped by Totenkraft (yep, he is here as well). And guess what? Of course Tom is following the arch-enemy to save his sister. Actually if you're waiting for something original in the forth game of the series, don't be so naïve. But on the other hand, though The Time Has Come reminds of all the its predecessors, it is the same when it goes about the quality of the game as well.

The Timebuilders: Pyramid Rising

What are your associations when you hear the word Egypt? Might they be pyramids, pharaohs, gods, tombs, camels, scarabaeus? With The Timebuilders: Pyramid Rising you have a great opportunity to dive into unique world of Egypt mythology and raise an empire from the sands of time. If you liked Royal Envoy,you'll like this new building simulation from Wendigo Studios in which you play as a ancient Egypt`s greatest architect and construct either famous monuments or reconstruct various villages. Just having started to play the game I was surprised to hear amazingly beautiful music!

Have you ever dreamt to win fortune playing cards? Do you believe in any magical combination that can make you rich? Have you ever heard about Queen of Spades and her pack of playing cards? Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades is based on a story by Russian writer and poet Alexander Pushkin, so progressing through the game don’t be surprised by a great variety of Russian culture elements. But at the same time the traditional plot is a little bit changed, so that you’re facing a real detective story… When the game starts you find yourself at the entrance of the countess’ mansion.

Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart

If you played The Secret of Margrave Manor and Margrave Manor 2: Lost Ship, you will be more than pleased to play Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart - amazing sequel! Frankly speaking I didn't like previous games very much, but this one touched me a lot! The beginning of the game seems to be pretty standard: Edwina Margrave is talking on the phone to her boyfriend, while driving to the cottage, where her parents died, to find out the cause of her parents' mysterious death.
