Not long ago I was shivering in my computer chair as I trudged along in the snow at  Dire Grove. Now I’m sweating in my computer chair in the steamy atmosphere of  New Orleans of 100 years ago. ( These excellent games really get you immersed)!  Deadtime Stories  is a classy production in every respect from the lush environments to the intriguing story, to the sound, to the excellent mini-games, a perfect blend of adventure and hidden object. Deadtime is a work of art,

 You  begin your creepy journey in a cemetery where the caretaker, Edward Blackgate, is very persnikety about whom he lets in for their eternal rest. However, rest is not the word. These graveyard inhabitants are very lively ghosts indeed. As the game begins we zero in on the gravestone of Jesse Bodeen, a voodoo prietess of the New Orleans of  long ago, when slaves were bought and sold. Jesse uses her occult talents to cure the sick and champion the weak until a snooty socialite named Delphine LaLaurie sends for her. Greed and revenge are alive and well in this rich story and you are carried along on the murky tide, a tide writhing with black magic and voodoo spells. and just plain fun for you, the player. 

You will be collecting a gruesome assortment of stuff: many skulls, a  headless doll, deadly poisons, a chicken head, three drops of blood from a tree weeping blood, three tears of a saint and much more. At each level of the game you’ll be creating a voodoo potion, a spell to clear obstacles and let you advance. You even get to construct your own voodoo doll when Jesse’s doll is stolen by vengeful ghosts.The mini-games you encounter  as you enter the various emvironments ( including the French Quarter and an alligator-infested swamp) are original  and colorful and  many of them are just plain hard. No ordinary puzzle fillers like jigsaws, sliders and connecting the pipes appear in Deadtime. The puzzle games are just as outstanding as the rest of this production. Highly recommended!

Thanks, Devora! "Deadtime" really is a blast, not scary but deliciously macabre!
