In Andergast, whose inhabitants are considered to be notoriously superstitious, King Efferdan awaits a state visit from high-ranking dignitaries. For centuries the kingdom has been at odds with neighboring Nostria, but now first steps are being undertaken toward a lasting peace. But a plague of crows troubles the king, for the birds are acting with unusual aggressiveness, even attacking humans. Moreover, there are those among the citizens of Andergast who swear that the crows are bringing them dark nightmares. As the belligerent creatures infiltrate even the castle itself, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck that has followed him since childhood is undeserved. Following an audience with the king, the prestigious task is assigned to him. However, not only does his task prove unexpectedly difficult, but it also turns out to be the first step of the greatest adventure of his life, which will lead him to the borders of the charted lands of Aventuria and beyond.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav review
Being a veteran Adventure gamer, I just had to buy this game and although it was a good length and some puzzles were thought-provoking, all in all it was rubbish. The hand-drawn graphics were beautiful, as we have come to expect from Daedalic, but the story-line was pretty bad, the characters had no likeable qualities whatsoever and were quite wooden and very often the game would hint at you that you needed to do one specific task, but then it turns out it was commpletely wrong. This left me swearing at the game. Alot.
If you are an adventure veteran lie myself, give this game a whirl- it wont make you cry or laugh or feel much of anything except a desperate want for the end to come, but it will fill up some empty days.
