I really like the look of this. Reminds me of Broken Sword visually. Is it more puzzles & story, or just hidden object?

Definitely watching out for Chronicles of Mystery 2 as well!

Murder in Venice is a story driven hidden object game, with puzzles and adventure twists, while Chronicles of Mystery 2 is more like an adventure game with hidden object elements and puzzles Smilie

Thanks for the response, pan_henryk.

Yes, Chronicles of Mystery 2 is very story-driven, with LOTS of different styles of puzzles, riddles and logic conundrums mixed in.

Murder in Venice, from what City Interactive told me, is more like Vampire Moon: Mystery of the Hidden Sun - i.e. a Hidden Object adventure with a few extra puzzles mixed in. Considering how much I enjoyed Vampire Moon, I can't wait for Murder in Venice Smilie The graphics DO look rather like Broken Sword.
