An enigmatic carnival has come to town, bringing an unsettling mystery with it. A young mother has gone missing, and now it’s up to you to find her before it’s too late. A detective – you – take on the investigation in the house of mirrors, where Susan was last seen. Soon you find out the owner of the show, a knife thrower with a tragic past, is involved. With the help of the dark powers, he captured his victim in the Mirror World, and you have to investigate two worlds: the one you live in and an alternate plane existing behind the carnival’s Hall of Mirrors, to save Susan. Discover the secret of an ancient being named the Evil One and learn the tragic story of carnival’s manager, who accidentally killed his fiancee during a show many years ago. Explore picturesque yet terrifying locations and prevent the Evil One from perpetrating another terrible crime.
A lush artwork represents two vivid versions of reality – our present world with bright carousel, Ferris wheel, fortuneteller’s tent; and the reflected eerie world covered with mist, skeletons and hungry plants. Hidden object scenes are beautifully detailed. If you are stuck or just want to have a break from looking for hidden items, you may use the hint system or switch to the Monaco card game in order to move along. This absorbing mini-game requires you to make matches of two cards that contain the same symbols and are touching horizontally, vertically or diagonally. In addition, a cute monkey will help you retrieve some items that are hidden beyond your reach, a map will show you active locations and a diary will keep the track of your tasks.
A variety of puzzles, sophisticated storyline, pleasant voice acting and smooth controls will keep you on your toes through the last scene.
The game is developed by Artifex Mundi and published by G5 Entertainment AB
