Summary: A story driven click and go puzzle game. The game play is simple enough as you work to unfold this mysterious girls story, although it is easy to miss some of the small details that help you solve the puzzles or move on to other areas. Not really a horror game, but certainly dark in nature.
A Good Horror-Themed Point and Click Adventure Game

Summary: Just like the title says, Theresia is a good horror-themed point and click adventure game. Awhile back, I was in the mood to play some horror-themed games, but since I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn to save my life (i.e. my shooting accuracy is not so good), games like Resident Evil were pretty much off the list. So, that left me with my two favorite genres: the RPG and the point and click adventure game.
Summary: I'm a little late to the table on this one, as Theresia was released last October and I only just got it for Christmas. I'd originally heard about this game back in June, when I was bored and Googling "Shadowgate" - an old favorite NES game of mine. When I read that Aksys was localizing a game that was "a horror-adventure game like Shadowgate," my inner fangirl (and a lot of my outer fangirl) began squeeing with delight.
Thersia may not B 4 everybody, but if U like survival/horror try it.

Summary: Theresia is a strange game, or life-simulation, as I would refer it to be. The most compelling (or disturbing) is you start out the first Chapter (or Book) as 10 year old Emilie who, for reasons unknown, wakes up in a dark, smelly, room in a darker blood stained facility, ladened with horrific booby traps (sharp needles & skin shearing knives).
Excerpt: "...me. When I did get Theresia as a Christmas present I was ill with flu for awhile and so I had the whole week to find out whether or not this would be a favourite of mine. Theresia has two stages; Dear Emile, the main game, and Dear Martel which was a side game related to the first story that was unlocked once Emile was completed. Both parts begin with a nameless character waking up in an abandoned building, which is teeming with mysterious living ...
Pros: Good storyline, artwork and the fact it's a point and click game .
Cons: Frustrating puzzles, repetitive soundtrack and some translation issues .
