Earlier this month, the Russian game development company Nevosoft released the sequel to their exciting detective game, Mysteryville which is titled Mysteryville 2 for the iPhone/iPad and Windows.
In the new release, the main character, Journalist Laura Winner comes to Mysteryville on the invitation of old acquaintance Bill Witowsky. However, she arrives in the town to find Bill missing and an art and jewellery auction about to take place organized by the town's new priest. Could Bill's disappearance and this auction, which is totally out of character for a small town like Mysteryville, be connected somehow? It's up to Laura to find out, with your help of course.
Mysteryville 2 has a hidden object and puzzle-solving gameplay style and offers a new story and a chance to catch up with familiar characters of the original game.
Instead of just searching rooms for random junk, it feels like every hidden object search has a point to it and can be explained logically in the context of the story. For example, Laura helps the priest search for chalices by plucking a certain number of them out of the environment, or collects all the suit jackets for the dry cleaner so that they don't get ruined by the store's leaky pipes.
Other variations on the hidden object theme that will be encountered in Mysteryville 2 include searching a dimmed room with a flashlight, finding objects based only on their silhouettes, collecting pairs of items such as fruit and timepieces, and comparing two versions of the room side-by-side to note the differences between them.
Mysteryville has been developed for iPhone, iPad and Windows platform so far. You can check out the video in this post to get a feel of the game.
