The Muse Calliope has inspired countless works of art, music, and poetry throughout the ages. But now, a dark talent has torn her essence to pieces and scattered them about the city, wreaking havoc upon the citizens. Calliope’s powers are being hunted, and the creativity of the entire world is at stake!

Track down the lost fragments with a special amulet and free the townsfolk trapped inside enchanted buildings. But be warned, not all of your allies may be as good as they seem. Some may want the powers of the muse all to themselves.

Your trusty Harlequin doll will help guide you through gorgeous hidden object scenes.

Use your magical paint palette to solve vibrant puzzles and brilliant mini-games.

Dive deeper into this case and enjoy additional Collector’s Edition exclusives including collectible olives and coins, Harlequin’s costume gallery, and more!

Fun adventure

I enjoyed playing.. It was fun, but pretty short even with the bonus chapter. The storyline was interesting and the artwork was beautiful.
Although as another reviewer mentioned, it had potential to be so much more, but fell short. I felt like it seemed a bit rushed, or over edited.
Most of the puzzles were a bit too simple for my tastes, a couple did not seem to respond well, very sticky, and difficult to move the piece.. like the dragging the object through the maze and going through the forest. A couple other puzzles were just too annoying , like the lining up the slots one.. I just skipped it. I did like the boudoir and the shop, except they didn't really seem to have any extra purpose beyond spending coins or olives and decoration.. Ho hum.
All in all, pretty good, fun, but just falls short of being awesome.

Be Careful With Calliope!

This game contains many of my favorite things, including art work, pretty antiques, and costumes. You even get a little doll companion who finds costumes that miraculously fit into the story. She looks like Jeannie in I Dream of Jeannie, and finds costumes such as a handy person, a snake charmer, or a cowgirl to complete actions in the story. If you use your Magic Paint Pallette, you may bring paintings to life, such as a marten who can climb objects to retrieve something for you. Also, you must break each vase you find to acquire money to decorate a boudoir. When you touch plants, they release swarms of butterflies. All very nice, but a longer game would have been better. You are trying to discover why the goddess, Calliope, has been split into pieces and is so angry. I liked the game and the premise, but I love a longer story. Good luck pleasing Calliope!

Forbidden Muse - disappointingly short

Could have been oh so wonderful....gorgeous art, unique story, an adorable helper......but the constant freaking begging for ratings pop up from big fish plus the shortness of the game ....sorry I had to deduct points. The BF pop ups would have earned this 1 star but I didn't want to hold the developers responsible for BF begging (most undignified to beg for ratings guys! Are you really that desperate?) the deduction of a star is solely for the too short length. It really was a fabulous game it just needed to be twice as long or half the price. Other than that: only vermin I saw was a jazz playing quartet, has transporting indicated map, logical game play but is a tad sloooooow in places.
