Apple Games latest feature article enters the mysterious environs of The Abbey. The point-and-click adventure game allows players to take the role of Leonardo who, with the help of his assistant Bruno, must unravel a series of mysterious crimes occurring at a remote monastery. Apple's article includes an overview of the game, an explanation of the game's influences, and a list of tips and tricks for success.
As Leonardo carries out his task with help from Bruno, he becomes acquainted with the abbey’s residents, including the prior, Segundo, who does not appreciate the presence of outsiders, and the busy head librarian, Umberto, who has little time for idle chit-chat. Umberto — named in homage to Eco — also demands that Leonardo obey the strict rules governing who can read the tomes he oversees. Toward the end of the story, Leonardo crosses paths with Nazario, the Grand Inquisitor who arrives to take over the investigation; the two have a past connection that was not friendly.Read the full article at the link below.
Apple Games: The Abbey
The Abbey’s storyline takes place over the course of four chapters, during which Leonardo tries to unravel the terrible truth behind Anselmo’s death while contending with new murders that complicate the situation. In the role of Leonardo, you must converse with other characters and collect objects required to complete goals. You’ll learn much about the complex relationship dynamics between the abbey’s residents and discover that even the simplest tasks consist of multiple steps.
For example, gaining access to the scriptorium, where you’ll find a key piece of parchment that belonged to Anselmo, requires Bruno becoming a copyist. Before that can happen, you’ll need to locate a quill for Bruno to use as well as look for a specific book for him to copy from during his test. Both of those steps involve intermediary tasks to perform for other characters, such as gathering bitterwort for Arcadio, the seemingly senile gardener who will trade it for the book in question.
