Creepy experiences await adventure game players foolhardy enough to experience Amber: Journeys Beyond. Those fascinated by poltergeists and unexplained phenomena might find that this spooky game from Hue Forest Entertainment will have them sleeping with the lights on. Set in a house in the North Carolina mountains, Amber is a ghost hunt where observing poltergeist activity has expanded to interacting with it. Amber gives players an intriguing paranormal experience, and what begins as a response to a friend's concern develops into a journey to rescue souls.
You realize quickly that you are not alone while exploring the house and the surrounding property seeking clues to a friend's plight. The history of the souls haunting the house makes itself known through an up-close-and-personal point of view. Each soul died a tragic death and finds himself trapped in a purgatory-like state. To help them move into the afterlife, you must solve a series of well-integrated and moderately challenging puzzles. The souls in and of themselves are intriguing: Watching the gardener's lifeless body swinging slowly from the rafters, all because he couldn't get a date, makes the player's life seem much more fulfilling.
If you're looking for a few hours of torturous fun, Amber is definitely worth considering. Amber will make you wonder what really does go bump in the night.
