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? You play as an unnamed female detective … 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 »

Arrrrr– *cough* *cough* *splutter* Terribly sorry, do excuse me, had something stuck in my throat there. Not at all was that an attempt at a pirate impression, oh, no. But pirates is exactly the topic to have in mind when considering Artifex Mundi’s Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, pirates and point-and-click gameplay. The question is, does Nightmares from the Deep do either well enough to spend your hard earned plunder on? Before you view the main menu, Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart will show you a cinematic that briefly outlines the violent life of Captain Henry … Read More »
