I wasn’t going to post anything this week because I was exhausted from looking through Steam demos. I know that I keep saying that there are too many porn games, but God damn, there are so many porn games in that store. I was on the brink of giving up for the week when I randomly found this week’s game. This week is the Grimfield Mystery.
The Itch.io page delves more into the story than the demo even remotely gives and it says:
As Lucas’ parents are in love with everything related to the paranormal, the family traveled to Grimfield’s forest to investigate…On their way to Grimfield, a mysterious object was given to them, an antique amulet…This magic amulet summons a magic hand that becomes an extension of Lucas, allowing him to activate and grab elements far from him.
The gameplay is a run-of-the-mill point-and-click adventure. You can really narrow down what you can interact with because of the changes of the cursor when something can be interacted with.
The demo starts the player off interacting with a small girl who requests your assistance. Within the haunted home are a handful of puzzles that are quite clever in their execution. There is a vengeful apparition within the home trying to get you as you make your way through the home solving various puzzles.
The art style really grabbed me at first sight because it reminded me a lot of Gravity Falls. It has a very clean, colorful look to it. It is very apparent when there are still shots that Grimfield Mystery looks extremely good.
It was unfortunate that the demo was extremely short because i flew through it. I think I cleared through the demo in almost 15 minutes flat. I really like the look of the game and the overall point-and-click adventure part was pretty fun. It was amplified when there was a persistent enemy introduced.
I liked the demo and I hope there is more info about the game soon.
