Artifex Mundi have graced us with yet another hidden object game on Xbox, this time in the form of Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan, providing you with several hours of puzzling entertainment, but does it offer anything new or more of the same? Like most other Artifex Mundi games, this title starts off with a short intro, introducing your (usually) unseen character into the games world, more often than not under a supernatural setting. This time, you're a doctor who has been summoned to the land of Eagle Kingdom, where a queen has fallen ill but is ... Read More »
There’s a clear loving bond that’s been formed between Microsoft and developers Artifex Mundi. Numerous titles from their excellent series of hidden object/point and click/puzzle games have already made themselves at home on Xbox One after being carefully ported over from PC. The next title to grace the system introduces us to a new series and formula in Lost Grimoires: Stolen Kingdom. Artifex Mundi’s narrative of story-telling continues to excel its reputation of being well thought, engaging and in-depth. It is the excellent method of its gameplay execution that leads to Lost Grimoires becoming another well-constructed title that draws you ... Read More »

Honourable mentions Jackbox Party We couldn't decide ... Read More »
Here, at XBOUK, we're quite fond of hidden object games, particularly Artifex Mundi ones. Maybe that's because they're the only hidden object games currently available or maybe because there are actually quite enjoyable. We can't decide. Either way, those good folks over in Poland are gracing us with not one, but two more titles from their huge catalogue. The first to be released, Lost Grimoires: Stolen Kingdom will be available to download later this month, whilst the second title Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan, will be released sometime in June. It seems like they're keeping up their ... Read More »
The Mists of Ravenwood is the sequel to Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, by developer & publisher Artifex Mundi, an independent company famous for bringing to the table point and click / hidden object hybrid games. Mists is no different. In fact, it seems with each release ported to Xbox One, Artifex warms to the task at hand, with more in-depth storytelling and challenging puzzles. Mists of Ravenwood takes place one year on from the events of Maple Creek, following our unnamed protagonist as she sleuths her way through another supernatural occurrence, this time through the Redwood Carving Heritage Park, all whilst following a lead on the disappearance ...

We've had a strange love for Artifex Mundi's series of hidden object games, noting how each release on Xbox One has been an improvement on the last. And the pulpy horror tale, Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren's Call continues that trend. Hit the links for our reviews of Artifex Mundi's Enigmatis and Grim Legends.  The Siren's Call is the sequel to Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart (These games have extremely long, B-movie style titles), but don't worry if you haven't played the original - sure, there are some references, but you won't be missing out on anything game-changing. Once more you take ... Read More »
Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride, developed by mobile games studio Artifex Mundi, has all the hallmarks of an intense Gothic thriller; a fairytale ghost story of the most wicked kind. Technical limitations and a persistence in the cartoonish art style prevent it from ever striking a mature tone, but the gameplay is much improved on the studio's previous Xbox title. This is one of those ‘dark and stormy night’ type games – you play as a young lady on her way to Ravenbrook, a sleepy village in the fantasy genre mould. You’re there to meet your long-lost sister, who is inconveniently kidnapped ... Read More »
At around the mid-way point of this intriguing hidden object point-and-click detective puzzler, it suddenly struck us: we felt like we were playing Call of Duty. Let’s be clear: Engimatis, from Polish studio Artifex Mundi, is nothing like Activision’s first-person shooter. And although the story aspires to be a nightmarish noir, it’s more like a cheap airport paperwork in the Stephen King mould; a thrilling throwaway. Yet, because the gameplay in Enigmatis is so deceptively simple, it’s as addictive as Call of Duty in that achingly familiar ‘Just one more…’ way. So what’s it all about? Welcome to Maple Creek... You play as ... Read More »
Are you ready for this spine chilling title Can you imagine waking up in the middle of a road dazed and confused, you struggle to open your eyes and get to your senses. As you slowly sit up your mind starts asking questions such as how did I get here, where is here exactly, what has happened over the last few days and what happens now? Then you get that feeling, a nasty sickly feeling that turns your blood cold and makes the hairs on your neck stand up - but those feelings and memories aren't specific, you can only ... Read More »
