Dark Arcana: The Carnival is another quest from the studio Artifex Mundi in which you have to solve the mystery of the carnival of horrors, to find a disappeared woman and save the world from the evil living in a parallel world. The game events revolve around a strange amusement park which a little girl and her mother decided to visit on one weekend. Everything was going fine. Joyous cries of the girls prevented the mother from denying her visiting rides one after another, until they decided to go to a chamber of horrors.
Basically, the things happening behind the doors of the chamber didn't scare the main characters, but when the show was over and they wanted to go out, only the girl could get on the street, and her mother was left inside as the door slammed shut. The girl was knocking on the door a long time, but no one opened. At the same time, her mother also tried to get out, but these attempts were unsuccessful. You enter the game in the role of a detective who arrived at the strange scene, and from that moment on the fate of the missing woman is is in your hands.
GameplayAs soon as you get to the park which will already be closed to the public, you will see a strange man. He quickly closes one of the attractions and then throw away a key and flee in an undisclosed direction. Tellingly, some of the rides will still work, despite the lack of people in the park. And soon you will come across a small monkey who will help you overcome some of the difficulties.
As you have probably realized, the game is presented in the form of a quest in the style of "I seek", in which you will have to sort out a lot of different piles of rubbish in search of the items in the list. In addition to the hidden object scenes, you will find a few mini games with a logical bias which you will also have to solve to continue the search for the missing woman. Some of the found objects can interact with others, and, if found, they will settle in your inventory until the moment they are needed.
