Thanks to to the magnificent feedback on Lechuza for iPad we decided too build it for the iPhone too.

Please write your thoughts about the game in this thread. Thank you.

I'm always on the look out for decent horror games. Could you expand a little on the story? The app's description on the UK App Store only runs to a couple of lines. Also, what is the gameplay like? How large is the game? The graphics look a bit old school to me, but not bad. Thanks.

Hey Espekayen

You're on the hunt for four small figurines, that are missing in a frame. You search Mr Vinterbck's old house in Sweden, there is evidence of burnt corpses. You will find letters about Mr Vinterbcks journey to the djungle, and learn about a different kind of wood that seem to have magic powers. The solutions in the game are sometimes weird and challenging.

It is not a game you will be able to play for days. It's meant to be a game that you will play through in a couple of hours.

Here are some of the reviews we've received on the ipad version, they might give you some more info.

5/5

Disturbingly beautiful - I loved this game, beautiful graphics and a nice eerie mood, sort of Twin Peaks-esque. Not the longest, except when you get stuck (and you will ), but well worth the price!

Finally figured out the portraits! Keep trying! - The game is Wonderful, but much much too short, and absolutely no replay ability. I would suggest that the developer makes part two, three etc. The scenes are beautiful!

A good challenge. - I really enjoyed this game and look forward to future games from this developer. Hints would help, but the graphics are good and the music wonderfully creepy!

Difficult but worth it. - I needed to seek out a little help online to make it through the game. The fact that there was no hint system or walkthrough (yet) made it more satisfying for me in the end because I didn't have to wrestle with the temptation to cheat every time I felt stumped. The last stage was hard - turned out one of the solution theories I tried was right, but the differences in the pieces of the puzzle were too subtle for me to enter it correctly so I ended up having to try every combination until I hit it.Liked the concept & graphics. I don't like games I can sleepwalk through, too many of the puzzle and hidden object games I've played (30-40, estimated) almost insult my intelligence with too much hand-holding, so I definitely felt like it was a good purchase based on how much I thought. Overall time the game kept me entertained & price also contributed positively to my rating.

Interesting..... - Love the look and feel of the game on my iPad. I can't get enough of these point and click games and the added bonus of a horror theme makes it that much better!Only one question, where is the 2nd key in the bedroom at? I am almost to the point of giving up!

I think I am experiencing a glitch. I actually looked at the walkthrough to what I may have done wrong. Spoiler Alert










The Music box is playing, but the door does not open.

Just found this game and played through it. Absolutely adore the art style, and loved the creepiness of the whole game. Any plans for more?
