Mac game Letters from Nowhere sets the scenes for an interesting search for a lot of stuff. In other words it is a good hidden object play. The story begins with Audrey being followed by a stranger on her way home. Once there she waits for her husband, Patrick, who does not show up. The police are unwilling or unable to help so she starts the investigation on her own. Not entirely on her own. She finds letters from nowhere and thus begins her adventure into the unknown. Who is writing these notes, are they from her husband and what is she getting herself into?
As mentioned before, there are a lot of cluttered HOG scenes with a few mini puzzles. The HOG scenes will have the list of items you need to find at the bottom of the screen. Some of the objects will have to be put together to cross off the list. For instance, doll is listed but you will need to find the head and body to put them together before it will be removed from the listed items. The hint button is the magnifying glass to the right of the list and recharges quickly, however, if you use it, you will be lose a lot of points. (more…)
