Quandary Reviews by Gordon Aplin

"In this first-person perspective game the beginning elements to the story will be revealed piece by tantalising piece as you explore your surroundings, read letters and journal extracts and find and use items including the powerful cards. You will learn that other people are also using the cards, some are even making their own, and that historical personages such as Aleister Crowley, Tsar Nicholas II, Anastasia and maybe even Rasputin are somehow involved.

"After you leave the room you will be able to explore a New Orleans street and a mysterious apothecary shop, but most of the game takes place in the hotel, Le Monde De Oublies, in two different time periods. The game is quite atmospheric, I loved the ghostly whisperings that haunted the decrepit, abandoned hotel of the present day and even when you travel back in time it is strangely devoid of life, as if everyone had suddenly disappeared in the midst of whatever they were doing."

"The Forgotten is a game of solitary exploration so there are no conversations, though you will briefly meet up with Richard at the rather abrupt ending to the game. Despite its brevity I found it to be most intriguing and it certainly captured my imagination, but then I do enjoy a good mystery and I liked the way the snippets of information I discovered slowly revealed elements of the plot."
