Black Hammer developed this original IP for the casual game market. Here BHP expanded the concept of the hidden object game (HOG) and wrapped it in deep narrative told in graphic novel format. Numerous comic panels appear both as full pages and as overlays to further intertwine the gameplay with the narrative. Original code puzzles also add to the gameplay of this product.
