This is where a sweet little rabbit begins to take care of his friend flower. To reach those who can heal her, he sets out on a journey that requires not just a keen eye but some smart thinking along with it, seeing you going around collecting hidden objects and other items in order to apply them to the riddles hiding throughout the world.

With Artifex Mundi’s history of the Hidden Object genre delivering a ton of these over the years, you can be sure that these will be well worked and hugely entertaining.
