List of Danse Macabre Games in Order!!

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

This post is pretty much like my previous lists for Awakening and Dark Parables!!  Danse Macabre is a series of eerie point-and-click adventure mystery games with beautiful art work and brain-bendy puzzles!  The overarcing theme for this series is theater and drama.  The stories and their intrigue get pretty intense!!

These games don’t have convenient numbers in their titles, so you can get a little lost looking to play them in order.  Well, here is that order!  You can download these for free so don’t be shy about checking them out! nn

Danse Macabre: The Last Adagio

The theme for this one is ballet!

Danse Macabre Crimson Cabaret

Danse Macabre: Crimson Cabaret

Yup, this one is cabaret.
It takes place in Paris – how romantic!
But one of the cabaret dancers has been murdered, and you’ll have to
investigate suspects around the city for evidence.

Danse Macabre Deadly Deception

Danse Macabre: Deadly Deception

Every time I see the title of this one, my brain reads “Deadly Premonition.”
That is… a completely different game…………..

The mystery this time concerns an entertainment academy

As it turns out, one student was untruthful about her identity,
and you’ll have to solve the mystery to find out who she truly was
and what happened to her.

List of the Awakening series of games IN ORDER!!

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Okay, this list is going to be for my own use as much as anyone else’s, LOL!

The Awakening series of adventure games is beautiful – the art is fantastically gorgeous, like looking through a vintage fairy tale book, and the storyline is exciting and adventurous!  It is softer and sweeter on the side of fairy tales, compared to a game like Otherworld, which is grim and haunting.  Sometimes, you just want to play something nicer!

Well, I encountered a problem when I looked for more Awakening games to play – I had no idea what order they went in!  So, after reading a bit, here’s a neat, handy list so that both you and I can check them out chronologically and enjoy the story from beginning to end.

awakeningthedreamlesscaslte

Awakening: The Dreamless Castle

The first in Sophia’s storyline, The Dreamless Castle details her awakening
in the abandoned palace, alone, to set off on her adventure
to find what happened to everyone else!

awakeningmoonfellwood

Awakening: Moonfell Wood

Sophia travels to these woods after braving the lonely castle.

awakeningthegoblinkingdom

Awakening: The Goblin Kingdom

The mountains of the Goblin Kingdom are Sofia’s third destination on her adventure.
This is the highest rated of the Awakening series!

awakeningtheskywardcastle

Awakening: The Skyward Castle

This was the first in the series that I played, when I picked one at random;;;
I thought the title was cool, it reminded me of Skyward Sword!

Much like Skyloft, Sophia’s adventure leads her to these islands in the sky.

awakeningthesunhookspire

Awakening: The Sunhook Spire

Sophia’s adventure is reaching a climax, it won’t be much longer after this
before she understands the mysteries that have followed her this far.
She needs the help from an enchantress of the Sunhook Spire to undo
the curse that she discovered in the previous game.

awakeningtheredleafforest

Awakening: The Redleaf Forest

The final chapter in Sofia’s story, one where she must forge the Blade of Courage,
which will save everyone!!

awakening-kingdoms_feature

Awakening Kingdoms

Although this game was actually released between Sunhook Spire and
Redleaf Forest, for continuity’s sake I figured I would place it here in the list.
Kingdoms is a free-to-play game that came out where you play as
a steward of the castle, tasked with helping Sophia
restore the palace to its former glory!
There are a variety of minigames and adventure puzzles included within it.

awakeningthegoldenage

Awakening: The Golden Age

Now that Sophia’s story is concluded, the Golden Age picks up as a prequel,
detailing the warring events between humans and monsters that occurred
long before the palace Sofia knew had met its curse.
