Second Chapter is Way better and Fluid
I know second chapter is just too shrot but the story twists and keeping the same interest from beginning to end is just great. I can't say the same thing about first chapter. It's slow , boring , repetetive just too long and the gameplay is the worst i have seen in years ( point click genre)

So here are my thoughts ( i know no one cares)

but my score to first chapter is 6/10
second one 9/10 (i loved the butler character and playing as the other side)

so enjoy the game

All the talk of it being short etc, added to the "pay now, play later" model, just makes me unwilling to try it.

it is short but it is done masterfully ( story wise) . if you care about a great mystery story then this is the best thing you can play rite now. gameplay is not good.

My opinion is exactly opposite. I like the "slow" flow of the first one, where you starting to know characters, it really feels like you play as a "want to prove himself" constable, who is almost on end of his carier. Especialy second part on cruise ship is very well done and it´s what I want from "Agatha Christie like" adventure game. Logical puzzles, lots of interesting dialogs, mystery murder etc. Big problem is ending (I still think it should be two parts with the end of firts in the museum attic). The gameplay is standard in all counts, which I think is good in this type of game.

Second episode isn ´t much of a game, it´s short interactive movie with obvious twist in the middle. The biggest problem is second half of it. I like the idea on the paper, but not the execution of it in the game. FIrst the character is absolutly uncharismatic and uninteresting and you in fact don´t play, you just filling check boxes (so now, it happened this so I should do it) and more than you play you watch animations (why not play the part in the tunnel? Why not play the part getting on board?).

Still have hopes for the conclusion; I feel there is room for quite good ending (tension between Raven and Legrand...). I just hope that the half of the episode will not be just cruise and museum "from the other side" and that most of the episode will be set after museum attic events. Maybe grand finale on the Nile´s cruise?

the first game is an utter crap in terms of gameplay . it may be the most frustrating adventure game ive ever played.

I agree the second episode was just a big cutscene.
