4.0 out of 5 stars A great game to keep you going, 10 Jun 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Keepsake (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I'd wanted this game for a while and finally bought it a few weeks ago. I found it to be a nice lengthy game, which draws you into the mystery and makes you want to find out what happened. Unlike some games where you just complete them because you feel you should finish what you've started.

You begin by having a small tutorial courtesy of one of the bit part characters in the game. Once that is completed you find yourself (as Lydia) in front of the academy doors, ready to start your new life in the school. Expecting to meet your best friend, Celeste by the entrance, you find the front of the academy deserted. Plus the doors are locked and there is nobody about to help you get inside. Following a small puzzle to get you inside, your next quest is to find your companion throughout the game, Zak. He (in the form of a wolf in the beginning) tells you a little about the school, and shares his story with you along the journey to find out what happened to all the people who should be in the school, but mysteriously disappeared before you rescued him.

There is an in game hint system, which you can use if you get stuck. The hints come in a few steps, each one expanding on the solution to the puzzles if you can't figure them out for yourself. If you still can't find the answer, there is the option to have the puzzle solved automatically (I'd recommend against that if at all possible as it means you don't get to find out what the answer was, you just jump straight to the cut scene where the puzzle is completed), which means there is no need to search for a walkthrough for this game. There's also the option to find out what you should be trying to do next if you are unsure what your next course of action is.

My only slight grumble about this game was that unlike some similar style games there was no map enabling you to jump straight to an area you wanted/needed to be in. It did make moving from place to place a bit tedious at times as that academy was like a rabbit warren and too easy to get lost in at times. But it was only a minor thing overall and didn't put me off completing the game.

The storyline was good and drew me in, plus the ending was.....(I won't spoil it for you)
