Great game, but it’s too short. 3 hours to complete. And it doesn’t seem that it has multiple endings

I'm also a bit disappointed by the game's lenght (and really there's no need for hints) and the fact there's no alternate endings; but also by the design's choices globally. I liked this one but for me the room 3 is still the best. old sins reminds me of the first game, puzzles in a box in box in a single room, but with less... mystery or whatever, I don't know, like at has less soul than the previous game; the room 3 had gorgeous environnements each with a story of their own, and this whole tarot cards progression through the fortune telling machine, and the fact you could still dig deeper and not go for the easiest ending. on the other end the story in old sins is quite good actually, that's one tragic story about a couple with no luck since the zero enters their lives; cleverly told through a book that fills itself as you discover more chapters (2 pages each time, meh.) but the room 3 still has the best story and endingS in the whole serie. also, having the same hub everytime you get out of a room is underwhelming. this cellar is empty and the doll house is a bit ugly I think, not much details, doesn't really work as a whole visually... even the rooms inside are somewhat empty... I'm aware this would have taken much more time to do, but if we had to visit the manor itslef rather than a dolls house, it would have been great, you know like in the previous one, point and click your way through the corridors and different rooms...

anyway, I don't feel like it's a five star game but it would be a shame to just compare it to the previous which was a master piece. it's just.... good, I guess.
