Description

While staying on the coast in Ducan Creek with Dr.Gregor MacDermoth and his daughter Ophelia, Prescott Bridgeman receives a letter from his old landlord Mary Miller telling him about the mysterious disappearance of her tenant Dr.Alvin Carter after his stay in her Victorian estate near where Prescott is staying. Prescott and his friends decide to do an investigation there, since they find that the problem doesn't only lie in the disappearance, but also there is something mysterious around and inside the estate. That's where the game begins, with Prescott as the players' character.

The Miller Estate is the first part of the Arcane Online Mystery Serial series and the first episode of the Season 1 of this series. This is a short room-escaping adventure game in which players collect items and solve puzzles to proceed. Prescott holds a "detection equipment", which make sound when players point at suspicious places. There is a time limit depending on how many times players click on the screen. If players make too many mistakes, the time limit will run out, and Prescott will die.

The game's graphics are in 2D. At the beginning of the game, Ophelia's diary appears, telling the game's story. In order to open Ophelia's diary, players must solve the puzzle on the cover of the book. The game also offer players an instruction and the save function.
