"The game occurs in real-time, over the course of seven days.
This is how it works. If it is afternoon in the real world, it is also afternoon in the game world. When it becomes night in the real world, it also becomes night in the game world.
This story requires you to visit various locations in the game world at precise times in the real world.
Enjoy a sophisticated story with major plot events occurring every day.
It started with an investigation of a puzzling haunted mansion in the English suburb of Castle Hill. Now a group of young teenagers find themselves thrust into a plot that deepens by the day. Each day, they unravel new mysteries surrounding the town, but only on the 7th day will the full truth be revealed!
It has 5 times more puzzles than the previous edition. Prepare yourself for a diverse variety of puzzles: both logical and mechanical in nature. This edition also adds puzzles made specifically for the smartphone! Of course, the popular features of our previous title: the tweets, conversation, and hunting systems return as well.
* Please don't post spoilers and solutions to the puzzles online, whether by Twitter, Facebook, blog posts, etc.
* This is not an easy game and it cannot be solved by everyone. Please understand this before purchasing the game.
* We are unable to answer any questions regarding the puzzle solutions.
* The game can only be completed one day at a time. The game world clock is synchronized to real world time, so if you start the game at 11pm you will only have 1 hour remaining in the day to complete the ""first day"" of the game. Please start the game only when you feel you have enough time to spare.
Ratings and Reviews
The puzzles in this game were for the most part fairly challenging. I enjoyed seeing all the characters comments, and it was interesting that the characters moved from location to location given the time of day. The idea of having the time of day in the game correspond to that in the real world was a nice touch. However, I ended up wasting a number of genius candies just to find out that the info needed to solve the puzzles was in a tweet that had not yet been posted. Even so I really enjoyed the storyline and the build-up of suspense as to who the culprit could be. Unfortunately, upon reaching the final day I found that I could not complete the game due to a bug with the map feature at the start of the day.
Fun, unique game
This game is super fun and cute, and the puzzles are just the right level of challenge. I almost gave up a couple times, but the hint candy helped. I love the seven-day premise.
There are a bunch of typos, and a couple of bugs--for example, I got stuck inside a puzzle without reading the instructions and wasn't given another chance to look at them. But it's a unique, creative game that deserves a look.
It's challenging, which is good, but sometimes the candy "clues" are useless. Then I'm annoyed at having wasted it to read something I already knew and didn't help me at all. Overall I would say I'm enjoying it I guess. It's not the best purchase I've made, but I do look forward to more from this developer.
