The eccentric architect Baron Wittard has built something really special: a city inside a building. This monumental pleasure dome, called 'The Utopia', features 1000 apartments, a shopping mall, and hundreds of offices and leisure facilities. All under one roof. Its grand opening was supposed to have been two years ago. That event never happened. A chain of mysterious events has now left the Utopia abandoned and silent. People have gone missing. Electromagnetic disturbances are increasing. These happenings all point to Wittard's desolate Utopia. Armed with only a camera and a torch, you must journey there alone to explore its winding corridors, its secret passageways, and its gloomy halls. Local townspeople say Wittard kept a terrible secret. They speak fearfully of someone or something malevolent lurking at his city. They say it is waiting and growing in power. They say time is running out...

pas très intéressant en comparaison d'un autre jeu du même style "Dark fall : les âmes perdues".

Baron Wittard tries to be a Myst-like puzzle game with horror elements. Unfortunately, puzzles in the game are either of the kind that puzzle game enthusiasts have seen many times before or they simply require searching the gameworld carefully to find a hint that is often both necessary and sufficient or nearly sufficient to solve the puzzle. One puzzle that requires searching the building where the game takes place for symbols that can be hidden anywhere and without any clue as to how many of them there are is particularly frustrating. Another frustrating thing is that very few items in the building can be interacted with. A lot of the game is actually spent just walking about the building looking for a place where it is possible to actually do something.

The story of the game tries to be unique, by introducing elements from norse mythology. The mythological elements are underused though and it instead feels like a fairly standard ghost story. I have to give the designers credit for including a viking museum in the game, though. The graphics are also good and give the game the right kind of atmosphere for this kind of story. Too bad the story itself is not good enough to add to the atmosphere.

All in all, it is an okayish puzlle game but there are much better games in the genre.
