Adventure Classic Gaming has posted a new review of Kalypso Media Digital's Anna. The horror adventure game takes players on a puzzle-based hunt through an abandoned and seemingly haunted sawmill in the Italian countryside.

From the review:

So, what is Anna? It is a classic adventure game, rendered in gorgeous 3D graphics with lush visuals and brilliant sound direction that will engage you early and chill you later. It is a brief adventure, although your mileage may vary depending on how long you are willing to endure its shortcomings. The game is full of the usual adventure tropes: you have an inventory, you can combine items, and you will have to solve puzzles to get the story to move on. You will be investigating a haunted house to uncover the mystery or not. Unlike other games with only 2.5D graphics, you can pan the camera in any direction, turn around, and even sidestep.

What is most remarkable about Anna is the game's art direction and attention to detail. While blundering about a haunted house certainly is not new to the adventure game genre, the realism that Dreampainters has taken to immerse you in this house is unique and impressive. The developer has gone to extreme lengths to recreate an actual sawmill beside a mountain range in Europe. I wonder, though, if the developer is also trying to make a statement on some sort of meta-irony of starting a game outside a white boarded house.
