    Hi everybody. I'm curious if anyone has played this. It, for some reason, has me wanting it. (Don't ask, I don't know why...) I've checked online reviews, and it seems to have gotten pretty good ones. It's just my game budget doesn't exist right now, so anything I get better be good and entertain me for a while. Thanks guys.

    I played it, was definitely fun. There were one or two puzzles that I had to cheat on, mostly because the wording got me all crazy. And a couple of puzzles that were just annoying (I hate slide puzzles and anything related to them). It's got great presentation though, and a cool story, even if you can see the twist coming a mile away. Plus the weekly puzzles were nice to get (not sure if they still do them, I loaned my copy of the game to my mother so haven't been keeping up). I'd recommend it if you like brain teasers and point and click style games.

    Definitely worth getting :) 

    It has some incredible animated cutscenes, a good story and stupidly addictive puzzles, and you'll kick yourself half the time when you find/figure out some of the answers.

    Love the british accent in the game, and yes some of the puzzles are challenging, and it's kinda tedious that everyone you meet will have a puzzle for you, but hey at least it is optional for you to come back for it later.
