The paranormal mystery game, House of 1,000 Doors: Family Secrets, is based around an author stumbling mentally for her next great book idea. Kate Reed, a successful author now has writerÂ’s block and is distressed about her future.

A mysterious package arrives at her front door with an extraordinary invitation to a seance. One of KateÂ’s dreams has always been to attend a seance. Kate immediately drops everything she is doing and calls a cab to take her to the seance. Traveling across town to the given address, Kate soon believes that the invitation was all a hoax.

The game, House of 1,000 Doors, reveals a ghost of KateÂ’s grandmother who instructs Kate to go to another location where a mansion will appear. The mysterious mansion materializes in different locations around the world and does not admit just anyone. Kate is one of the few that has been invited into the House of 1,000 Doors, before it disappears once again.

The supernatural structure is haunted by restless spirits and gifted mediums. The mediums help the spirits move on to their next plane. Kate has psychic powers of her own, which makes her a prime candidate for helping the other spirits and mediums to unlock the mysteries of the House with 1,000 Doors mansion. Players, along with Kate, soon get involved in the many different murders that have happened in the mansion, and the restoration of her late grandmothers reputation.

The design of the game, House of 1,000 Doors, has slick presentations that are easy to use and are complex in some areas. Usually in a game, the objects are hidden and it takes a key or tool to find the object. In the game House of 1,000 Doors: Family Secrets, you will be going through a maze of interconnected occurrences to find the hidden objects and items. The player is weaved through the puzzles and scenes to find the right solutions. The player has a more natural experience as all the mysteries are unraveled.

The complexity of the House of 1,000 Doors game is most intriguing and the travel between dimensions gives the player a variety of environmental scenes. Occasionally the player will see a mannequin-like figure but other graphics are good and interesting. The voice acting used in some of the scenes is adequate but nothing to write home about. The mapping that shows the player where all the objectives are, is concise and the feature that allows players to teleport directly to their objectives is note-worthy.

The highly overused theme of helping ghosts or troubled spirits find the light in order to find the objects is getting a bit dull. A more creative story could have been established. The player thinks he has a choice of endings, but not so, the ending is forced which makes it a bit disappointing. The bonus chapter does give the player more game playing time.

The overall design of the game, House of 1,000 Doors: Family Secrets is very good. The puzzle designs, clear objectives, varied locations and the easy navigation tactics, makes the four hours of playing time fun.
