A modern 3D, point and click adventure game. Perils of Man reboots the classic graphic adventure game with a story that will leave you pondering its profound implications.
Imagine getting a glimpse into the secret clockwork of the universe. Imagine a machine that can crack the code of destiny and give you the power to tinker with fate. Imagine discovering that for generations your family has concealed this power from the outside world. Ana Eberling may only be a teenager, but she is about to confront the biggest questions of life as she tries to solve the mystery of her father, a rogue scientist who vanished when she was just a little girl.
With striking 3D animations, challenging puzzles, and a tip of the hat to steampunk, this epic adventure spans 150 years, darting from a tramp freighter adrift in the South China seas to impending disaster at the Chicago World’s Fair, bringing a host of unforgettable characters, perilous exploits, and existential riddles along for the ride.
Perils of Man: Episode 1 includes the first three chapters of the game. Owners will receive a free upgrade to all 6 chapters of the full game upon the official launch of Episode 2, aimed for December 2014.

Updated Demo to be in line with Episode 1 release.
So happy to see this on iPhone
Wanted this since I saw a teaser trailer, once it came out I was so sad to see it was only available on iPad. Just decided to search the name today and to my surprise its now available on the iPhone! Whoo!
I've only played this free trial, but it's a super fun point n click adventure game with some puzzles and an intriguing storyline. I also appreciate that the main character is (not an overly sexualized) female, which is a rarity in video games.
Anyway, I'm downloading the full version as I type. Guess I won't be going out tonight...
Outstanding so far, but with glitches
I agree with a previous reviewer who reported game freezes. My game froze immediately after being asked to rate the game and my reply to "ask me later." First, comments and dialog stopped working, then game froze completely. After closing and restarting I could not get the game to continue nor could I get it to start over. Could be I need to restart my iPad or reduce storage. If I can get it to work again, I'll definitely but it. One of the best games I've ever played, especially on iPad.
Intriguing game play, but with issues
Glitches throughout the game (screen freezing, slow/delayed play and abrupt game end) can be very frustrating and resulted in me rating the game 4 out of 5 stars. Overall the game is still a very fun thought provoking game play. So much so that I immediately purchased the paid version shortly after completing the free version of chapter 1.
