I’ve taken advantage of the weekends off I’ve been getting lately from work due to the Drummond For Congress campaign to test out some of the hidden object mystery games a bit more fully than I have in the past. Yesterday, I was deep within a game from Vogat Interactive. If I knew fifteen years ago what I know now, I would have learned programming, and moved to Kiev to try to get a job with these guys.
Unlike many other hidden object mystery – logic puzzle games, F.A.C.E.S. is bright and easy to see, yet still keeps its dark theme throughout. The story starts out when we see an artist with a special gift being experimented on in an old asylum. This young lady has a psychic gift to jump into places that she sees in photographs, and bring objects out of it. When she is being held by the scientists, they make her go into what looks like a picture of a museum and retrieve a huge ruby that is under laser security. They send her back to her cell, and there you start looking for clues to get out of what started out as an innocent medical consultation about psychic abilities.
