There are many variations on the theme of the story of Beauty and the Beast, from the classic French story, to King Kong, to the classic Fractured Fairy Tales of the 1960s.

While the media keeps giving us a new kind of take on this story, this interactive hidden object mystery is taking us back to the old story, where a French merchant in the 18th century got lost on his way home after a trading run, and found his way into the wrong garden, and picked the wrong flower. The merchant has three daughters, and while the older two wanted baubles and bows brought back form his trip, the youngest, Bella, merely wanted a flower, and that take us to where we are now. Investigating the kidnapping of Bella, and why the creature in that magical castle won’t let her go. While the movies we have seen kind of gloss over Bella’s family life, this game does go into more detail, not only about Bella, but her captor, as well.

So we all know the happily ever after version of the story of Beauty and the Beast, thanks to French faerie tale author, Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and modern media, but this hidden object mystery takes this story a bit further down the line into a speculative fiction where the evil enchantress that placed the spell on the formerly haughty prince is not quite done with him. Belle has gone home due to some frightening news about her family, but it is a ruse to get her away from the castle. When she gets home, she finds the cottage in a bit of a shambles, and the small forest glen behind it disheveled, as well. This is where we take on the personae of Belle and start playing the game through her senses.
