New England Gothic

by Simba

Haunted House/Historical/Mystery

About the Story

(From the Introduction)

Somewhere in New England, in the little village where I grew up, exists this very house and its immediate surroundings. When you play this game, you are a young woman in the year 1899 who lives and works in New York, supporting herself as a secretary after her mother passes on. Suddenly you receive word that your Great Aunt (your grandmother's sister) in New England has died and left you an old colonial house and a lot of debts. You will need luck and patience even more than money if you are to solve the mystery surrounding your Great Aunt's reclusive life, realize the full potential of your inheritance and (of course) find true love.

Off-Site Reviews

The only redeeming features of this game, to my mind, are the descriptions of the locations that can be visited . Those inside the house in particular are extremely detailed and you can get a very good idea of what a colonial home of the period looked like as well as the way it would have been furnished and the kinds of historical objects it would have contained. As these are based on the village where Simba grew up and on an existing house and its surroundings, I think this must be one of her trips down Memory Lane. There were too many irrelevant objects that could be picked up but not used for my taste and the vocabulary is very limited. I also found the programming rather strange, where else could you become the world's strongest woman and pick up and lug round a carriage but not be able to enter it?
