Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises by LynxMinx

It was refreshing to play a HOAG with a crime sub-genre, as opposed to fantasy. The storyline can only be described as serpentine, so it’s a good thing there’s a deduction board on your smartphone. As a detective, you must collect clues, reconstruct crime scene events, and then form deductions. The graphics were excellent, and the game was lengthy with bonus adventure. Collectibles included morphing presents and playing cards. There was a nice mix of HO scenes and puzzles. The alternative puzzle was a pair matching game. You also were able to use computer and electronic equipment to further your gameplay.
The downside to this game was that it suffered from some technical issues. There was touchscreen sensitivity at place, especially when placing evidence. Some of the mini-games were impossible to manipulate and had to be skipped. At one point the game kicked me out to my home screen, but thankfully there was no loss of progress.
I also would have preferred a journal to an evidence board, because they are usually a pain in the neck. It seems to me that most of the gamers are not a fan of the evidence board and would rather have a true journal!However the general gameplay was good.
My rating will remain at 4 stars!
Happy gaming, everyone and please stay safe!

Amazing as usual but what’s with the green?

I wish I could attach photos on here. But every now & then they will be a green glitch onscreen, usual where characters are but also sometimes on items. Also, the heads aren’t always attached to the I don’t know how else I can explain it but there’s green glitches on screen & floating heads. I almost bought the full game until I seen it. (It begins on the very first screen & is also on the hospital scene.) I’ll save the photos in case there is a way to show/if y’all even want to see, but otherwise it’s a beautiful game and you guys always do HOG worthy.

Was excited for the game but graphics glitches occurred

I’ve loved almost every Artifex Mundi game I’ve played and I’m always excited to play a new one, especially when starting a new series, but a few minutes into playing this one there were a lot of graphics glitches in areas where there are animations (e.g. faces, swaying leaves, waves on the beach). This game seems really promising, other than the glitches the graphics are gorgeous and the storyline is interesting I just wish the glitches didn’t occur. I may leave the game for later to see if the issue is resolved because some of the most enjoyable parts of these games is the art. I really hope this gets fixed because I love every game the developers put out.
