Publisher: Artifex Mundi

Genre: Adventure

Enter an enchanting world of legends and magic, filled with gloomy forests, forbidden temples, and abandoned castles; a realm of dark secrets, where your destiny was written long before your birth... Within the shadow of an ancient forest, on the bottom of a foggy valley, stands the lonely village of Ravenbrook. The folk there are cheerful and diligent, yet warily superstitious. They surround the village with countless charms to keep the evil spirits at bay, for on the other side of the forest, there lies a seemingly bottomless pit, known as the Abyss. It is the place the villagers of Ravenbrook fear most... On this night, a young woman is returning home for her twin sister’s wedding. The sisters haven’t seen each other in years. Yet the invitation was strange, almost as if someone else wrote it, other than her twin. But still she comes, ignorant of the danger that awaits... For just before the wedding, amidst the happiness and reverie, a stranger arrived in Ravenbrook...

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride is proof that Artifex Mundi is trying to make all of their games seem different even if they do share similar gameplay mechanics. The domino games provide an alternative for those tiring of scouring the screen for small objects, but the inability to undo mistakes means that most players will stick to what they know. Despite this, adventure fans shouldn't pass up the chance of another easy completion even if it involves two playthroughs instead of one. For those who don't normally play this type of game, Grim Legends, or any Artifex Mundi game for that matter, continues to be a great starting point for their entry into the genre.

The absolute highlight of the game’s graphics is the kitten; cute, cuddly and playful in its movements.

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride clicked with me pretty easily. The game’s puzzles gave my brain a nice workout without ever becoming too complicated. While this release might not be for everyone, there’s definitely a large enough group of you out there that is going to love this release! Aside from the improvements needed on cut-scenes and voice acting, Artifex Mundi is doing a good job with these PS4 adventure releases.
