We always feel like PuppetShow is one of ERS-G's stronger franchises. Unlike many HOPA series from the developer, nearly every installment of PuppetShow comes up with something new to impress us; yet again, we were pleasantly surprised by PuppetShow: The Price of Immortality.

Name: PuppetShow: The Price of Immortality Collector's Edition
Release Date: 20 March 2015
Developer: ERS Game Studios
PuppetShow: The Price of Immortality might be the first game from ERS-G that gave us chills playing it. This seventh PuppetShow game is more adult-themed than its predecessors, with some graphic violence and slightly disturbing scenes. While the storyline is thrilling and very captivating, there some rather bizarre events happening. These are not necessarily bad, we personally think they are oddly creative and add some cool twists to the plot.
The characters in The Price of Immortality are also more lively and much, much more memorable than the ones in the previous installments. They are fully voiced and animated - both the voice overs and the animations are delightful.
The game presented itself in ERS' signature style. As expected, the graphics are top-notch, although a little bit washed-out. What we like about the artwork in this sequel is that there many scenes that actually look unique, they do not feel like a revamped version of the locations from the previous games - this makes the game really interesting the explore and does not get boring quickly.
Furthermore, we also thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay in this PuppetShow sequel. The hidden object scenes are fun and innovative, there are a few really nice looking ones. The puzzles are not very challenging, but there are some that we have not seen before and some that are nicely twisted. Additionally, you also have a Doll Helper who can help you pass through obstacles.
Fans of the series would be glad to know that the main game took us over a long 4-and-a-half hour to complete, and the bonus chapter took us another hour. The Collector's Edition featured all the standards, plus a Doll's House - which is unnecessary, but does not hurt having it.
PuppetShow: The Price of Immortality is pretty extraordinary, something ERS-G did not deliver in quite a while. Whether you are a casual HOPA fan, or a hardcore PuppetShow lover - The Price of Immortality is here to impress.
