Über das Spiel

Eine alte Abtei wird zum Angelpunkt mysteriöser Verbrechen - einzig ein Mann kann dem ganzen Einhalt gebieten. Der ehemaligen Berater des Königshofes, Leonardo, und sein junger Adeliger Schüler Bruno sind auf dem Weg in die abgelegene Abtei, nicht ahnend, dass sie in die obskuren Verwicklungen um ein lange gehütetes Geheimnis stolpern. Doch bereits ihre Anreise wird von einem Attentat auf ihr Leben überschattet ...

In der Abtei hingegen sehen sich die beiden mit noch mehr Rätseln konfrontiert, und die alten Gemäuer weigern sich beharrlich, ihre Geheimnisse preiszugeben. Nach und nach geraten Leonardo und Bruno in ein Komplott, dass nicht nur das Kloster sondern auch die gesamte Kirche in ihren Grundfesten erschüttern könnte ...

„The Abbey” – ein Mystery-Krimi im klassischen Gewand eines Point & Click Adventures, ist der Feder von Emilio de Paz entsprungen, der sich u.a. auch für das erfolgreiche Adventure Clever & Smart verantwortlich zeigte. Per „Point & Click” – Maussteuerung bewegen sich Leonardo und sein Assistent Bruno durch ca. 60 Locations in einer kompletten Nachbildung einer mittelalterlichen Abtei. Innovative Techniken ermöglichen Kameraeinstellungen und Handlungen, wie man sie bisher nur aus Filmen kannte.

Features im Überblick:
  • Innovative cinematische Präsentation durch aufwändiges neues Verfahren zur Kombination von 2D- und 3D-Grafiken, einmalig in einem Point & Click Adventure
  • Komplette Nachbildung einer mittelalterlichen Abtei, ihrer Architektur, ihren Kunstwerken, ihren Geheimgängen und Schätzen
  • 1000 Szenen in 60 Locations versprechen 40 Stunden Spielzeit
  • Kinoreifer Sound: Musik, Effekte und hochwertige Sprachausgabe komplett in Dolby Surround
  • Über 70 Minuten Orchestraler Soundtrack, eingespielt vom Prager Symphonie-Orchester

Ein gutes Point & Click, leider ohne deutsche Übersetzung.
Die Handlung ist sehr interessant, alles andere ist im guten Durchschnitt mit abstrichen bei dem Seitenverhältnis.

Definitiv einen Blick Wert wenn man auf der Suche nach neuen Point & Click Adventuren ist :)

+ well drawn hand-painted background graphics
+ story based on The Name of the Rose and it's quite intriguing. you're investigating some murders in abbey
+ there are some nice orchestral musics
+ generally good quality voice acting
+ interesting side characters
+ well made cinematics
+ there is a map for fast travel but interestingly you can't use nighttime
+ well written dialogues


- slow paced
- few puzzles, with little variety or challenge
- characters can't run and slowly walk everywhere
- game buggy. i couldn't finish game because of a inventory bug.
- there is no auto save
- there are no steam achievements
- there are no cards
- lack of a button which shows hotspots causes pixel hunting

After 2.5 hours of playing without save, game is frozen. i had to stop game's exe with task manager and i lost my all progress. despite intriguing storyline, lack of fun puzzles and slow pace make this game tedious. i really don't want to play again same parts. therefore i give thumbs down for this game.

I recommend this - mysterious story based on The Name of the Rose, atmospheric sounds, graphic side is cute and it is not too short. On the other hand, slide puzzles should be banned, I hated that part of the game :( The relationship between the main character and his apprentice is kind of abusive and it disturbed me quite a bit.
It is not the best game I played, but it is worth a try.

I bought this game at 75% off. There were a lot of mixed reviews but I thought I'd try it anyway. I liked it. It's much like other point and click games. The story was interesting, the graphics were good and it wasn't short. Without giving away anything, the only thing I was disappointed about was that someone else in the game that deserved justice, didn't get it. It's a fun game if you like point and clicks. I'd recommend giving it a try if it's on sale.

Wasted my time.. At first i loved the game.. played till almost chapter 2 but had to stop to run an errand outside so i saved the game. But when returned and tried to load it back its gone.. Ruined the fun for me to having to start all the way back to beginning.. Dont know if happens to other people but maybe just me i dunno and i dont care.. cant refund anymore since its passed 2 weeks of purchase.. so yay what the F*** ever.. Uninstalled.. Whoever about to buy this.. do be cautious.. You may have to play beginning till finish without having to save.. You could do so if you dont have a life.. :)

Visuals, story, characters and voice acting are all very good, game is certanly memorable in that regard, but two fings are stopping me from recomending it:
1. Missing assets bug, game will crash at certain spots and you will be forced to manualy rename incorrectly named files.
2. Puzzles are mostly fine, but often they are solved by visiting all locations to see if something changed since your last visit or talking to all characters for new dialog option. It becomes tedious realy fast (especialy if you now game can crash on you at any point and force you to repeat all that one again)

My advice: if you are interested in this game - just watch a walkthrough on youtube, you'll get everything that's good about this game and save yourself a lot of frustration

A decent core story is buried under ragged delivery, questionably cartoonish presentation, technical flaws and god awful sliding tile puzzle. The Abbey finds a way to break the immersion almost every time you finally manage to start enjoying yourself.

First challenge arises even before the opening cinematic, for most simply starting a game will be an adventure of its own. Steam doesn't recognize unique spanish letters so you'll have to endure errors and crashes to find out just what files you have to edit and how.

The visuals are good enough (though sadly not as good as the screenshots imply, in motion 3D-models are a lot less pleasant to look at) with backgrounds being one of the stronger points of the game. Still, during the vital moments the cartoony style seems like an odd stylistic choice, conflicting with the seriousness of murder and religious rituals, destroying the atmosphere that could have been with a more fitting approach.

In the game itself most things exist to irritate you: from the astoundingly low position of the subtitles and MC's frustratingly slow movements to the existence of Bruno. On the bright side, dialogue and voice acting are mostly passable (except, well, the good old Bruno, one of the most useless sidekicks ever created), some characters even have more or less interesting back-stories to tell and there are several clumsily delivered but still decent twists to the main scenario. The story is almost compelling at times, but even this last pillar is mostly ruined by a rushed ending, which exposes everything in a massive info dump by the characters without any player input and confuses the poor player with plotholes and the out-of-nowhere deductions from Leonardo.

Few real puzzles are put into this project, but you may still find yourself stuck from time to time as objects that has always been there like to suddenly become grabbable and be a key to the stalemate. But my main problem lies with that inverted sliding tile gimmick, few people play adventure games for these kinds of challenge and, if you are not a master of the Mystic Square, it also downright kills the flow of the best and most dynamic act of the game.

It's not a plain horrible game without its moments, but I strongly feel that Abbey's downsides are outweighing any fun it could offer.

I really wish I could recommend this game. It has a neat setting and at certain points it really nails a nice atmosphere. Certain parts of the game are fun and some of the game's problem-resolutions are pretty clever once you figure them out.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to the end of the game because the developers decided to put a difficult sliding tile puzzle in, and evidently I'm not the only one who couldn't get through it. I just find it extremely annoying when adventure game developers put these types of obnoxious actual puzzles in their games, let alone at crucial moments in the game once you've already invested a lot of time in it. People can do those kinds of puzzles online if they wanted to- throwing one in in a game like this just misses the point and adds game time in an extremely lazy way. I think I had read something about that puzzle in the reviews before getting the game, but didn't pay much attention to it. I wish I had listened to them.

Also, it's hard to tell from the screenshots, but the animation seems somewhat low-budget. Maybe it is an indie developer, so that is okay, but just to let you know going in... it looks like well-detailed, nice 2d backgrounds with simple, low-budget 3d character animations just sort of superimposed on it. Sometimes you can't notice, but other times it just looks kind of cheap.

I'm really suprised that this isn't more well known as a quality point and click adventure. It has a very good plot, mostly good voice acting, sensible puzzles and well done sound and visuals.

The best point of this game is the plot quality. It has a really interesting story featuring characters with depth. Your character, a Catholic monk, arrives at a remote monastery with his young acolyte and is asked to help solve a potential murder. Things get complicated quickly but the story never loses credibility. Good scripting (with a few minor mistranslations in the English version) and very solid voice acting make this a great story to experience.

Other good points:
Understated but well composed music.
Very nicely drawn background art.
Good puzzle quality

Things to make you think twice before buying:
It is a bit too expensive given its length (10 hours gameplay at a guess). I don't feel ripped off but try to get it in a sale.
The style of character artwork is a bad choice. The game's material has moments that are quite dark but the character faces are Disney cartoon.
Character walking speed can be slow although double clicking to quick-travel between screens makes this much less of a problem.

In short this is a good story well told with challenging puzzles. Maybe a little too expensive at £15.
