You wake up in the night on the middle of the main road, right after a huge storm has passed over Maple Creek, with a sense of dread. You have just a faint memory that you are a detective working on a case on this sinister town, but you have to recollect clues and objects to figure out what happened. Where are the inhabitants? What evil permeates this tiny Vermont town?
Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek is a mix of hidden object and classic point-and-click adventure puzzles. It includes an inventory so you can use objects with the environment, and an evidence wall to visualize, analyze and put together a number of clues. Each room is a 2D screen with many dynamic graphic elements on top of high resolution static backgrounds. The game is fully voiced and includes a number of cut-scenes to advance the story.
