Did You Know?


The icon interface is similar to King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride (1994), significantly different from most other Sierra games: instead of the multiple command icons (Walk, Look, Take/Use and Talk), there is only one all-purpose cursor in shape of a hand mirror, which becomes red when the player passes it over an item/character which can be interacted with, or turns into an arrow pointing a direction to which the player can walk.

Above the fireplace in the dining room there is a portrait. When looking at the mirror to see the reflection of the room, the portrait is changed. See more »


[Adrienne touches the mirror in the dining room which triggers a vision of Carno with his second wife, Victoria. Victoria sits at the dining table, drunk, with a bottle of wine and a half drunk wine glass, when Carno enters and steps behind her]
Victoria Valmont Carnovasch: Well, well, look who's here! The great Carno!
[Carno begins to stroke Victoria's hair, which Victoria brashly pushes away. Carno roughly stands Victoria up. Victoria grabs her drink and throws the remaining wine in Carno's face]
Victoria Valmont Carnovasch: Here's to you!

Ignore the hype, just play the game
25 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful piece of work, considering the budgetary concerns. True, alot of the early game is simply getting from point A to point B but it isn't a bad trip. Its not as predictable as some would have you believe either. Its pretty graphic in a cheesy Ed Wood type of way. The story does have enough twists in it to make it interesting. As for it being boring, the purpose of any point and click environment is to make you interact with the game. If you really want to play, it has its rewards. I just wish that the FMV scenes would make the lead female character a bit stronger and the blood looked less like raspberry syrup.
