Welcome to The Inheritance of Crimson Manor by MediaCity Games. Take control of a rich railroad magnates private assistant turned executor and traverse a spooky mansion and find out what happened to your former employer. A “Penny Dreadful” style gothic horror story, you must solve a veritable cornucopia of puzzles and riddles while exploring a gorgeous manor with some stunning visuals. If you want to play a puzzle mystery with a plot that is not intrusively present, this is without a doubt the game for you. Let’s investigate.


A first-person puzzle solving game, this title has you walking around a 24-room mansion, attempting to figure out why your employer and his family suddenly perished. I will say, right off the bat, this game is absolutely brilliant. I very much enjoyed it from start to finish, as I have a strong penchant for puzzle games like this.

Giving you a non-linear story, you are able to move around the house somewhat freely to solve many of the puzzles as and when you want to. The freedom of play that is afforded to the player is fantastic and it makes the ambiance of the game stronger through this same function. You traverse the map using he W, A, S, and D keys and clock on everything you can see to find all the puzzles and items that you may need to solve them. A lot of this game is finding items and figuring out what puzzle they are for and that isn’t really a bad thing as it is a way of rewarding exploration.

Throughout, you may be pleasantly reminded of Return of the Obra Dinn which is a very big plus in many puzzle gamers books.


The ambiance of this game is ever present and it is definitely something that is hard to ignore. As you are walking around, you will hear a lot of “house settling” noises. Creaks in the floorboards and the doors. The sound design is functional and well-crafted, making you constantly wonder “is there a big spooky ghost or monster behind me right now.” That is clever and very hard to do on purpose, but this game nails it.


So, one of the biggest parts of this game is the visuals as nearly everything is presented visually with no dialogue. One thing that may seem strange for me to notice, was how nice everything looks. I don’t mean in regards to graphics, although they were great. I mean how well-presented the house is, how well its styled. The color palette of the house its gorgeous.

The materials that items are made out of is also very well done. The metal objects shine and the you can almost see the grain of the wood. I also found the lighting to be very immersive too, something that many games get wrong, but not here. Visually, the game is like a refined version of Escape: The Brothers Saloon.


A very well-designed and well-executed game with an engaging story that isn’t overbearing. A must play.
