    I've never taken these hidden object games seriously, not giving them a second look really, seeing as most of them are essentially the same thing, but in this game you can see that there's real effort and creativity put into it, will be keeping an eye out for these devs and what they work on in the future

    I have always liked adventure games like this and this is defiantly one I want to play for myself as it has a bit of a creepy vibe which I dig. That eerie music sounds like it belongs in one of the dungeon/cave areas in one of the Diablo games .

    There's some oddware I'd love to see. Before powerline networking, you could use your phone jacks, as I understood it, it was like having DSL in your house (DSL LAN). If anyone know about this, please comment. It was out about 20 years ago

    All of those online flash games will become lost when Flash gets depricated from web browsers ;_;

    Aw man I used to subscribe to Big Fish back in the day. That's where I bought all the Diner Dash series, and time management games,
    I tried my fair share of hidden object games too, don't underestimate them. Some that are legitimately creepy, thoroughly engaging and surprisingly high budget.
    I remember enjoying the Dark Tales Edgar Allen Poe series.

    That music is so out of place, yet satisfyingly creepy. Good video Clint!

    Horror is a classic and traditional part of Christmas stuff. I mean just look at a Christmas Carol, where Ebenezer Scrooge is tormented by the ghosts of Chirstmas.

    Big Fish Games! Try out their most popular Hidden Object game yet. The Mystery Case Files series! It may be shovelware but it's a well done shovelware which is surprising.

    I've played dozens of hidden object games and they're almost always a "collector's edition".

    I have a Big Fish title based on H. P. Lovecraft's 'At the Mountains of Madness' which is quite enjoyable.

    To be fair, The Nutcracker was always a messed up story, especially for Christmastime.

    We need more pre-intro intros like this one.

    Also, a pizza calendar?!

    I'm glad you pointed this out – I've been wanting to play a decent point and click adventure for a long time.

    I just realized that I wanted to buy some LGR socks, do we have more in stock anytime soon? Or should I just stick with buying the LGR thongs?

    The princess or however her name is has a lot of similarity with Happy Holiday Barbie from 1996.

    "weird electrical torture dungeons" wasn't something I was expecting to hear when I clicked on this video.

    Is it just me, or do some of the voices in this game sound like the male wood elf voice from Morrowind?

    Got this on Steam and played through about 90% of it last night. It really is a descendant of the noble lineage of the Adventure game. The mini-games include several that tickle little things I've always enjoyed from the periphery of gaming. It's cheese yes, but closer to a smoky Gouda than off-brand velveeta. Thank you so much for the suggestion, Clint. Incidentally, you mentioned issues with modern hardware, but I've had zero issues running a Ryzen-based Windows 10 rig.
