While on a road-trip with a friend’s daughter, the girl is stolen from you in a blink of an eye. You’re forced to confront phantoms from the past, an unsolved murder, and countless secrets in order to save Monica.

You’ll have to be careful of every step that you take. It’s almost impossible to tell what’s real and what’s imagined as you descend into the madness.

Ghosts hide in every corner of Penumbra Motel. You’ll need all your wits about you to save Monica from the terrors that threaten her.

Something awful happened at Penumbra Motel in the 1950s. In order to save Monica, you’ll need to uncover what really happened, and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Another dud!

Is it just me or has Big Fish gone to hell in a hand basket? I used to purchase almost every single game they put out. But I have only bought one or two in the last two months and they were barely passable as fun! It's like they just keep putting out the same old junk week after week. They must not even read the reviews because if they did they would get better week to week. Instead we keep getting games with no teleporting map, worthless hint system, no extra goodies to find, and no in-game strategy guide. I truly despise having to leave the game just to look at the SG. It kills the flow I had going and is a pain in the but altogether. Sometimes we get one or two of these features but never all of them in the same game. And they gotta stop asking me to review the game over and over again! Sometimes they ask two or three minutes into the promo! I. How can I review something I've barely played? They should know by now that the people who play these games are either not gonna rate at all or they will do it when they are good and ready to. The only thing being asked to review does is turn people off to where they won't review or to where they will give a poor rating because being asked time after time is annoying. I keep hoping for a good game to buy every week and every week I'm disappointed. Maybe if people quit buying these subpar games they will get a clue and start putting out better ones.

Ghosts and more ghosts...oh my....

After a dry spell of new games from BF, this is a pretty fun HOP to be found but games are intriguing. This is a very easy game and would be great for first timers...guess I should have played it in advanced mode (But, I am too impatient to wait for the hint button!!). I even like the real actors as they are not amateurish like most of the " real actors" games. No map which is a bummer but a decent hint button to get you there. Good storyline for the spook lover in me as I do believe in ghosts ( I have a spare bedroom that is filled with all my mothers furniture. I do hear drawers and closets open and close and my daughter and I took pics of orbs in the nite!)
Shout out to Bunkie..loved your review, hope you r well. Snooper..I am so very sry to hear of your heart goes out to you. I lost my nephew on 9/11. So very hard to recover
Lynxie...heads up on the rat in the fridge! Moonbeam..howdy do to you.
Have a very sick husband's..might not make it. We r very sad here.
Upon completion of the game, due to the soreness of my tapping finger, after hundreds of taps during this game and NO response. Hate it when this happens! Heads up Lynxie...another rat, hidden in the garage!

First Class! (update)

I have been reading the negative reviews on this game and feel compelled to comment. First of all, this should not be classified as hidden object game. It is not. It is also not the lightest fare offered in this genre. If you have just finished Awakening, for example, and are hoping for magical gardens or cute creatures to help you through your puzzles you are not going to find them here. This is for sure a creepy game. That being said, it's well done and it has an interesting storyline if you just give it a chance.

So far, this is a really excellent offering from Big Fish. The acting is excellent, the story line atmospheric and creepy and the puzzles are challenging. No map but I really haven't needed it yet since the game (so far) keeps you neatly in a limited set of scenes. Will update when I get further, but so far A+!
