Cultists + possibly cursed idol + puzzles = brain teaser of the year!

Excellent logic puzzle game with an engaging plot. I kept playing not just because I needed to see where the plot was going but because the logic puzzle in each section challenged me, something I've sorely missed from the Professor Layton games. 10/10, needs more dlc
