I have been playing The Treasures of Mystery Island the Ghost Ship. It came highly recommended but I don't know if I would give it glowing reviews. Has anyone played this?

I dont remember having played that one, Wasabipug!

I have just started to play Echoes of the Past: The Citadels of Time, and am just downloading the latest Edgar Allen Poe which I am sure will be just as good as the other two!

The Edger Allen Poe sounds really good. Let us know how you like it.

I finished the Ghost Ship one, it was ok, I wasn't thrilled by it. That's funny Rosaboobie, because I too am playing Citadels of Time and have downloaded Edgar Allan Poe Premature Burial. I hope it works because The Black Cat kept kicking me out and telling me I had corrupt save files and had to start over so I could never finish that one. I am enjoying Citadels of Time, What do you think?

I just saw that the new Dana Knightstone game Death Under Tuscan Skies has been released as a CE. I really liked the first game but I think I might wait for the regular edition to come out.

I am greatly enjoying Echoes of the Past, Wasabipug.

And I just finished the demo last night of the new Dana Knightstone, and for me it's also a winner, although I will definitely wait for the SE.

I got Citadels of Time and the new Poe but haven't played them. I liked the Black Cat, mum has the other one but I haven't played it. When I tried to find it, I ended up playing some other Edgar Allen Poe one which wasn't very good at all!

Ooh, I've never heard of that? Off to look it up...

I'm playing the first Dark Tales Poe game, and nearly finished...

I agree Rosaboobie, just finished premature burial, I thought it was excellent and I had no technical issues like the Black Cat. I am still playing Echoes of the Past, it seems to be longer than other games, a couple puzzles have me frustrated, others are absurdly easy, have you found this to be the case Rosaboobie?

I broke down and bought Death under tuscan sky CE, it is awesome so far

I got a board game called Elder Sign (yes, it's based on the Cthulhu mythos), and liked it well enough (it plays well solo or so-op). The publisher then put out a Mac version and iPhone/iPod, iPad, and Android versions. I bought the Mac version and have been playing it way too much!

I have had extra time so I have been playing casual games! I finished Echoes of the Past: Citadels of Time. I have to say that overall it was a great game. It lasted much longer than most and had a wide variety of interesting puzzles, some of which made me feel accomplished that I was able to solve them :)

I finished Death Under Tuscan Skies, another enjoyable one, the extra chapter was quite long but I would probably still advise waiting for the SE.

I also finished Bluebeard's Castle, it had some good things going for it, for one it wasn't a collector's edition, gorgeous graphics! I didn't like the lag time between some scenes and the puzzles were completely unchallenging.

I also downloaded to try Strange Cases: The Secrets of Greymist Lake and what I played of it is really enjoyable and scary!

I am currently replaying Drawn: Dark Flight, and will then will play Drawn: The Painted Tower, before launching myself into the new Drawn. I had forgotten just how good the "Drawn" series is.

And I see that today Mystery Case Files: Escape from Ravenhearst CE has just been released :cheers:

Escape from Ravenhearst? Isn't that an old one?
