There are so many hidden object games now that it's difficult for one to surprise or even impress you, but that's exactly what The Dark Hills of Cherai will do. It hits the expected HOG notes beautifully, but adds in brand new melodies that are wonderfully unusual and unexpected.
The story is somewhat meandering tale about a grandmother sharing a tale with her grandkids about an evil magician, an adventurer, and a lost treasure. One of the children goes off in search of the treasure and swiftly gets himself captured by the magician, leaving it up to the other kids to save him. The story is told through journal entries, images captions during brief interludes, and a golden butterfly that you find along the way.
