You find yourself in your apartment, you feel like anything and everything has gone wrong, and at the spur of the moment you have decided to take a little train ride to clear your head and meet a friend at a place called Augur Peak. You will play the part of Alex, a girl who has lost her way, but refuses to give up. In this point click adventure game you will get to play through three chapters and get to really know Alex as well as some of the twists and turns of her life.
Graphically The Charnel House Trilogy went with a more dated feel to it. You are not going to see photo realistic characters, but with this game it works.The characters gain portrait pictures when they talk, and for me I felt waves of nostalgia with how the game looked.
This game makes you feel like you opened up your favorite book from your past. You know the one, that roughed up copy with the yellowing pages that you know you've read half a million times, but for some reason reading it feels so good. That's what this game did for me, I felt like I just slipped into the game and was at ease... ... well maybe not ease, that would definitely not be the word I would use when I think about the twists and turns in the story.
The action is broken up into three different parts, and each are not overly long, the entire three chapters takes about 2 hours, but in my mind that was 2 hours would not take back. I played through the entire thing in one sitting, this allowed me to find the rhythm of the game early, and keep with it until completion.
The voice acting was excellent as well. What can I say, Owl Cave knows how to put together a solid game, the voices made me feel the emotions, confusion, deceit, and more.
I really wish I could get into some of the details about this game, but that would ruin it for you, the gamer, and this is definitely one of those games I do not want to ruin for you. Just trust me when I say if you like a little bit of horror with a splash of self-doubt wrapped up in a point-click adventure, you're going to want to get this game.This game gets a 9.3 out of 10.
