During excavations in an old Templar church in Luz, France, Adam Venture finds a scroll that seems to provide the exact locations of the 4 rivers described in Genesis. A major discovery, since Eden is rumored to be located at the point where these biblical streams cross. Soon after his discovery, Adam is approached by a large company, called Clairvaux Inc. They are willing to fund an expedition to search for Eden, mainly because they believe there are large amounts of gold located there. And so it comes to pass that they set out on a journey of a lifetime.

I loved this game. It's a classic adventure game with amazing graphics and outstanding soundtrack, and it's also very funny.

Some things I disliked: game is too short, I've finished it in 3 hours or so; camera angles get awkward sometimes; some puzzles are way too easy

And it's a shame devs decided to infect Episode 2 with Securom. It would be insta-buy if it weren't for this. Since they'll probably do the same in episode 3, Mr. Venture is dead for me.

Looks and sounds very good, but i would like to know one thing, what kind of DRM does this episode have, i'm asking because i have heard that episode 2 will have limited installs, is this true?

Desura is good but the user base is inferior to steam (for now), the only problem with steam is the chear amount of competition there, in here this game is the focus, on steam it would drown on all the big name games and similar indie titles, but even so they don't lose anything by making this game availeble on steam.

I'll probably get bashed for this, but it's a peeve of mine.

Please consider re-encoding the trailer higher quality audio. It would give more appeal if the sound quality wasn't, well, garbage.

I see many companies (usually ones offering free games) doing this, and it's really started to annoy me due to the technology age we've been in for a while, and continue to push into. Not just that, but it distracts from the interest in the media itself, so much so I didn't bother getting through half the trailer before making this comment.

Like I said, I'll probably get rated down (and possibly have the comment deleted), but I had to get this out anyway.
