After playing Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink, I wanted to do another Artifex Mundi demo so this week I tried EVENTIDE: SLAVIC FABLE.
Clockwork Tales was inspired by steampunk, and EVENTIDE by Slavic myth. You are a botanist, Dr. Mary Gilbert, whose grandmother, Baba, is the caretaker of a heritage park that turns out to be a kind of magical preserve.
After grandma is captured by a gargoyle (called a “moth” in the game), Mary sets out to rescue her. On her adventure, she makes an herbal poultice to heal a magical boy, solves puzzles, and meets some mythical creatures.
Like other games published by Artifex Mundi, EVENTIDE is a point-and-click puzzle-solving adventure story. It’s rated “T” for teens, for fantasy violence, mild blood and mild language.
I enjoyed it so much, I bought the full game and streamed it all, including the bonus “Midsummer Night” adventure, unlocked after completing the main story.
