Redrum: Dead Diary HD
centers on Rose, a young girl with a gift for communicating to the dearly departed. Her mother and father disagree vastly on whether this is a good thing and since they are separated and dad has the money, he has taken Rose and placed her under the care of Dr. Sigmund Fraud (see what I was talking about with the puns?). Now, while Dad has no idea, Dr. Fraud only wants to drug poor Rose up until she loses her mind so that he can lobotomize her and milk money from her father for her care for the rest of her life. Lucky for Rose, she has a few ghostly friends and an uncle who is a cop searching for answers, both for Rose and the crimes he is trying to solve.
When a murder occurs, the victimís ghost visits Rose and gives her hints as to who killed them and she has to try to communicate this info to her uncle in whatever means she can. At first, her uncle is able to visit at the institution, but eventually, she must find others ways of getting her messages to him. So as the cop, youíll be visiting the scenes of the crimes to ferret out objects and hopefully solve the crimes, with tips from Roseís subconscious that communicates with his. Itís weird, but just roll with it, because itís a fun ride.
In addition to your standard hidden object scenes, where items are well defined and easy enough to spot, youíll also see entries from Roseís diary, as well as emails between her separated parents, journal notes from her uncle, the police officer, and newspaper articles on local murders. Youíll also have scenes where you may have to spot certain items such as a certain number of hidden fingerprints or some other object. Finally, youíll also have scenes where youíll see a complete picture, then at the bottom of the screen will be hexagonally shaped snippets of the same picture that you will have to place in their proper spots. They are variants of the hidden object genre, but well done and fun variants.
