EVENTIDE 2: SORCERER’S MIRROR is a 2016 point-and-click puzzle-solving adventure developed by the House of Fables and published by Artifex Mundi. I had a good time playing the first game, Eventide: Slavic Fable, back in January 2018, so I wanted to complete the trilogy.
The botanist Mary Gilbert returns in EVENTIDE 2. This time, she rescues her niece from an evil wizard dude, with the help of an herbalist, innkeeper, gravedigger, butcher and other inhabitants of a small village surrounded by magic and monsters straight out of Eastern and Central European fairy tales.
This video is a collection of highlights from my Twitch Try-It Tuesday live stream of the free PlayStation 4 demo. It’s not intended to be a walkthrough but to give an idea of the story and gameplay.
I bought the full game and completed it the next day. EVENTIDE 2 took about four hours total, compared to the six hours I spent playing Eventide: Slavic Fable. I assume the sequel is shorter because, instead of a bonus level, it features a branching narrative, where the choices you make at certain critical points affect the progression and outcome of the story. So, it could be replayed again to make different choices and see what happens.
I enjoyed EVENTIDE 2. I think the trilogy has beautiful artwork with a nice combination of story, brain teasers, and hidden object games. There are hints, if needed, and a choice of “casual” or “expert” mode.
EVENTIDE 2 is rated “T” for teens due to violence. Available for PS4, PC, Xbox One, Android and macOS.
