Hi, this time Big Fish Games released Collector's Edition of newest game - Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers which is not really exclusive. Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers was developed by Alawar Friday's Games, structural element of Alawar Entertainment. If you still don't know that, Alawar is another big casual games publisher, so it published Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers as well.

And now when Big Fish Games released Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers and write "Exclusive" label on it I may say, that it's not true. But whatever.
As you can see from the Gameplay video, this Alawar game is pretty good looking and interesting.
Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers Collector's Edition Main Menu
First of all, my main impressions after the Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers Collector's Edition completion was pretty positive. It takes about six hours for me to complete the game (including bonus content) so I may say game is not too long.
Come in and listen my story!
As you may see from the numerous screens and gameplay video, graphics in Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers Collector's Edition is pretty good. All game actions are happening at night so mostly scenes are dark and gloomy, but in the will-lighted areas everything is well detailed and nice.
Where is coins here?
Gameplay of Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers is interesting and various. Hidden Object scenes are changed by the different puzzles, animated interactive scenes and videos showing to you storylines movement and creating a high tension.
Everything begins with a train crush
Music is good, actors are voiced all game dialogs so it's another pro for a game. There is also lot of various side sounds, some of them connected with your actions and movement, other are random and created by the game environment, for example, by the rabid dogs sneaking you from behind and going to reap your flesh and tear your bones. It adds a lot to the Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers atmosphere.
What is your name, young beauty?
But let's finally talk about the storyline. Your protagonist (avatar, if you want) is a man named Ethan Black. He lived in the strange world, where magic and technology are working together, where buildings, towns and entire realms may be created by the single stroke of brush. And Ethan lost his bride-to-be - Clair.
Gates to the mystery of Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers
Clair was kidnapped by one of the most powerful, most hideous and most secretive forces in the Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers game realm - the Faceless ones order. When new member is initiated for the order, he is starting to hide his face behind the mask. They say that during the initiation procedure the Faceless ones Elders are disfigure the faces of newcomers, removing their skin. But there will always be willing to pay this horrible price for the power and supernatural abilities that the Faceless ones has.
Set the wings right to open gate-lock
Faceless ones headquarter are situated in the dreadful tower, placed in the center of once crowded town. When the Faceless ones has come there, some town inhabitants were killed, others run away. Son now the town become the ghost of former self, empty and rotten. Some buildings are destroyed by numerous fires, other are half-ruined without proper care. Some people are still lives here, but they are mostly hiding like wild animals, very few of them aren't afraid of the Faceless ones.

Before the beginning of Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers  story Ethan Black tried to stay away from the supernatural forces and battles of the powers, and we can say, he was pretty successful. But this time everything went wrong from the very beginning.
Why he is sitting there, in the middle of the night?
Your train crushed on the bridge across the river. River near the forbidden city, home of the Faceless Ones. So it's not a big surprise that they are captured your bride-to-be, your fiancée Clair and now her life is in great danger. You are the only one able to follow her to the forbidden city, looking for any clues leading you to the Faceless one's base.
Dark heart of the Dark Strokes
But "the only one able to" don't mean that it will be easy. Faceless ones don't ready to peacefully let you enter their sanctuary, take Clair and go away. Be ready to traps and attempts to kill Ethan Black (or get rid of him by any other possible way). Firstly everything will be pretty innocent: doors will be clothing in front of you, train will closed doors just after you and will move in unknown direction, hard objects will fall from the roofs somewhere near your head...
Set the figures right
And your most problem is that you are just a human: not a superhero, not a hero at all, you have no supernatural powers or advanced abilities of martial arts, or at least technical knowledge. You are no one and you can do nothing. Your enemies in the contrary has both technical knowledge and supernatural abilities. They can froze you, burn you, break you, do whatever they want, and they won't hesitate to do so if you will made a mistake.
I was looking for a weight for a long time
Will Ethan Black be able to save Clair and defeat the Faceless ones? Can he repay the debt of his father? Will he complete his quest and find what he's looking for in the depths of fiery abyss? Download Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers Collector's Edition and find the answers in the black heart of a decimated city.
