Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple CreekOverview -
Polish studio Artifex Mundi, which specializes in casual adventure games, first released 'Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek' on mobile in 2011. A few other Artifex Mundi titles can now be found on the Xbox One, like 'Clockwork Tales' and 'Nightmares from the Deep'.
'Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek' is presented in the first person, but movement is limited to area screens. Everything looks like adventure games from a long time ago. The cinematics are splotchy and the environments have a stretched appearance. Character models, as rare as they are, are stiff and wooden.
The sound effects are stock small creepy town stuff - creaking floorboards, creaking doors, just a lot of creaking in general. The voice acting, mostly done by the female protagonist, is rigid and unconvincing.
To be fair, it’s tough making a convincing argument for the hidden object genre as anything more than a workplace timekiller when other browser game sites have been firewalled. Artifex Mundi has some decent puzzle work in their portfolio, but 'Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek' was more of a chore than an engaging adventure experience.
