Plotline


After your sister, Luisa, vanishes on her wedding day, no one has any idea what happened to her. Some believe she drowned, but her body was never found. Being the grief-stricken and concerned sister, it's up to you to find the truth! You returned to the abandoned family mansion and search for clues. In your search, you encountered a daemon, who made a deal with you. Your soul, if you failed, in exchange for a chance to explore your sister's memories to solve the mystery of her disappearance and perhaps save your sister from her tragic end. Will you succeed?

Gameplay


In this game, you’ll have to find your way through the various locations in Luisa’s memories. This include searching for useful items as you travel between locations as well as collecting the items you need from the many hidden object scenes.

Hidden object scenes in Grim Tales: The Bride are primarily consisted of word lists-based scenes, whereby you are given a list of the names of the items to find in the scene. The scenes are fairly newbie-friendly as there is no time limit – so you don’t need to rush in searching for the items on the list. There isn’t any penalty either for clicking on the wrong object multiple times.



Not to mention, the hidden object scenes themselves are not too difficult, though there might be some items that can be particularly tricky to find. However, if you hit a snag in any of the scenes, you can simply use the hint button to help yourself out. The hint button can be used for unlimited number of times in a scene, but in between uses, you’ll need to first wait for the hint to “recharge” itself.

Interestingly, unlike many other hidden object games, none of the scenes in Grim Tales: The Bride is “recycled”. The game doesn’t require you to keep replaying a scene either! Besides scenes, the game also provides plenty of challenging puzzles that will be able to tease that brain of yours into action! All the puzzles in this game come with instructions and by clicking on the “info” button that pops out whenever you encounter a puzzle, you’ll know how the puzzle work.

Some instructions provided can be a tad bit vague, though most of the puzzles are pretty easy to figure out... but to solve these puzzles, well, that might take a bit more brain power. For instance, the gear puzzle is among the earliest puzzles you’ll encounter in Grim Tales: The Bride. In this puzzle, you need to set all the gears available into their right places. If a gear starts moving, it means that it is in the right place. Thus, via trial and error, you can easily fit in all the gears to their respective spots on the circuit board. There are also jigsaw-like puzzles that you’ll have to complete

As usual, if a puzzle has gotten you stumped, you can use the “hint” button to skip the puzzle. However, before you can skip a puzzle, you’ll have to wait for the hint to recharge first, giving you plenty of time to attempt to solve the puzzle at least once. For certain puzzles, there is even a helpful “reset” button that you can use for when you accidentally made a wrong move.

In addition, the game provides a journal detailing the story as you progress in the game. Grim Tales: The Bride also offers a much difficult, hardcore mode, for those hidden object veterans who enjoy a challenge.
