If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, this is unquestionably a fun distraction while waiting for the final series to begin in America in January (although the UK version has already started). In Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor, your role will be that of a newly hired staff member who was hired to investigate an unsolved burglary.

Downton Abbey characters Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham and his wife Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham.

 

A trespasser has looted Downton Abbey, putting the Earl of Grantham’s family fortune in jeopardy. As the investigator, you will search each room and assemble the evidence to ensure you will get to the bottom of this whodunit. Returning items to their rightful owners is a good way to earn the trust of the Downton estate’s residents, and it will lay foundation for the abbey’s eventual restoration. But choose your friends wisely. In a place where everyone has something to hide, discretion is always important.

For the first time the exquisite settings and captivating characters of the hit British series, Downton Abbey, come to life in its first interactive gaming experience. “It was one of the most exciting days of the year for everyone living and working at Downton Abbey. The day of the village fete had arrived and everyone joined in the day’s festivities. A great time was had by all, however upon returning to the Abbey it was quickly discovered that all was not well... The house had been ransacked! An unknown intruder had been through every room, stealing priceless objects and scattering items everywhere! With the Crawley family’s fortunes on the line and with so many Abbey residents with secrets to hide, no one is safe and everyone is a suspect. The Earl of Grantham has hired YOU to help return the castle to its original state of glory. However, the real reason for your employment is to uncover the real mystery of the break-in as discreetly as possible.”

Fans of the series will enjoy monthly Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor content updates (including a Christmas update, obviously) and compete with friends on social leaderboards to see who can restore more of the Abbey’s prized possessions to their former glory. Like your average hidden-object game, each scene is fundamentally an elaborately detailed image (in this case of a fabulous room in Downton) strewn with various objects. With a list of three to find, the bigger screen on a tablet rather than a mobile phone is advantageous since it is all a matter of searching and tapping. Disappointingly, you won’t hear your favorite Downton character’s voices but you will enjoy the familiar soundtrack of the series.
