Key to Ravenhearst

Postby skeeter » Mon Dec 14, 2015 2:47 am

Has anyone played the new Ravenhearst games? Key to Ravenhearst and Unlocked? I am confused....

How are the twins alive and grown up? Didn't we rescue their souls in the earlier games? And they were already born before they moved to Ravenhearst?

I may be remembering this wrong... At some point I am going to go back and replay the games, but not at the moment. Any ideas?

I played the new Ravenhearst games and wondered the same thing, skeeter!

Yes, and we've also killed off Alistair many times, but a spark of him always lives in Tanatos (sp?), the raven spirit. Eipix took over the franchise and didn't do a good job of explaining how the twins were revived. I'm still enjoyed the games, especially since they've included the complex Rube Goldberg-type puzzles, but I think the story has played out. It's like the Puppet Show games - too much already!

By the way, the second Dire Grove game hinted at more to come with the Ravenhurst saga, so I was expecting another game or two.

I thought I was just going crazy! For part of the game I had Alister and Charles confused as well... I think they just wrote the new storyline without considering the old one - they do that in TV too. Whenever I question something my dad always says "We'll hang a lantern on that!" which is a quote from Stargate about the very issue :) I have always liked the Ravenhearst games, but I also think they've run their course. But I do love the puzzles! I'll just have to start again...
