After a long break, the incredible Shaman Games is back with a brand-new game! 13 years ago, the Kingdom of Aurelia was attacked and the Royal family was imprisoned – only the Princess managed to escape from the grasps of the tyrants. Join Sam on an epic adventure to save his cousin, Princess Aurora and protect the Kingdom of Aurelia.
Firstly, notice that Kingdom of Aurelia: Mystery of the Poisoned Dagger is being offered on Big Fish Games as a Standard Edition – which is a shame considering the quality of this game is actually so much higher than many of the recent Collector’s Edition releases. Kingdom of Aurelia excels in the creativity department, giving us a refreshing theme with an innovative gameplay.
The theme of Kingdom of Aurelia can simply be described as the Renaissance meets Steampunk, which is something that we don’t see often in the HOPA world. As you explore the beautifully crafted landscapes, you will get to meet a variety of interesting characters and perform a range of unconventional tasks. The amount of thoughts and creativity that the developer put into developing this game is insane – definitely one of the most fascinating HOPA games we have played in a while.
Further, Kingdom of Aurelia is also quite a challenging game. Maybe it was because many of the tasks given in the game were not something we see often, but at times they took us a while to figure out what to do. Besides, the hidden objects and puzzles were also professionally done and extremely entertaining.
Such a tech-focused game would not be complete without a special device or two. Kingdom of Aurelia introduces Tim the flying robot, a robotic companion that can help you pick up items or complete tasks in unreachable places. In addition, you are also given the Mindscope, a high-tech device that you can use to read anybody’s minds.
