Scratches is a new adventure game by Nucleosys that uses an exploration system very similar to earlier Myst titles. You play the role of Michael Arthate, a writer who has just bought a mansion to live in as well as seek inspiration for his latest novel. But things are not what they seem in the creepy manor...

A choice of two control options are presented to you. The first allows you to pan and look around your surroundings by moving your mouse, while the other is basically a slideshow mode.

Everything in the game is rendered superbly, and the chilling atmosphere is further enhanced by excellent use of sound effects. The voice work does not disappoint.

Perhaps the only letdown is that after completing the demo you will definitely be craving for more.
