The Book of Desires is putting you in the shoes of a child, in a nightmare world... However, she's confronted to skeletons, ghosts and anything else that can scare easily a kid, but our protagonist isn't at all scared of where she is. Everything is written as if it was an adult and not a poor girl scared about the future of her family. The gameplay is the standard one: find objects, use them, clear hidden objects scenes, solve puzzles. Apart the fact that you will speak to people that will help you and the little twist at the end, nothing is really extraordinary. But I must say that everything is polished and well-balanced. There is just one or two bad translations (like compass translated as "boussole", used for finding North, South, East and West, which is a right translation but in the scene, it was the tool to draw a circle, which is "compas" in my language) and a puzzle that seemed to be broken as I couldn't do anything about it apart waiting for the skip button to be active. The graphics are really fitting to a creepy world: everything is dark, filled with scary entities. I appreciated them, As for the soundtrack, I didn't really pay attention to it. What really bothered me is that I didn't feel like the child was reacting as a child. If I can take Clementine from The Walking Dead and make a comparison, I would say that Clementine was more reacting like her age, even if she was in a post-apocalyptic world and had to grow up quicker than planned. However, in the game, it's like you were controlling an adult and an adult that doesn't seem to frightened despite the circumstances. In the end, I would consider The Book of Desires as an average casual game. It's not too bad but it's not as good as other titles out there. If anything, I find the price a little high, it's better to wait for a bundle or for a big discount. As for me, I won it during a giveaway, as it was a bundle leftover from Groupees. I'm giving it a positive review despite being mixed about it.
I don't have much to say about this game other than that the game is awful. There is nothing unique about it, the plot and setting is just dull and boring and could hardly be considered an "adventure game". It is priced way too high and i sincerely hope nobody accidentally buys it and wastes their money on a bad game like this.
The Book of Desires is an older hidden object and puzzle game where the setting is created by a young girl writing a wish into an evil magic book that has just made its way to Steam. There really isn't anything interesting about the story and it ends on a cliffhanger. The game has two difficulty options that only effect how noticeable objects are in the environment. Puzzles can have you moving objects around while trying to rotate wheels into the correct position, cycling colored balls to get all the matching ones on one side, creating bridges by finding the right combination of switches to activate. It's the expected gameplay for the genre but the setting, cliffhanger end, and lack of voice acting make it one of the lesser ones I've played.
