Moody Dark Mystery Adventure - but don't expect a Hollywood Ending
10 August 2010
Summary: Being a fan of mystery adventures, once I read the storyline, I knew this was a game I would have to play. The game has a dark gothic mood to it, the graphics are impressive, and the two main characters in the investigation present you with two different styles of gameplay. Playing as the thief, the game is more of a point & click adventure as you're more preoccupied 'gathering' (stealing) items in hopes of escaping to America.
Summary: I experienced the exact same problem with the game and did suspect SecuROM, but never got the usual "insert a valid disc" dialog box. I ended up contacting tech support and got a reply rather quickly. Their customer support told me to run some maintenance and do a clean install of the latest display drivers. Sounded like the typical thing they'd say, but what the hey, my machine was ripe for some maintenance anyway, so I ended up running defrag and disk cleanup.
