Solve a mystery that transcends time itself in The Watchmaker, a third-person adventure from Italy's Trecision S.p.A.. The game's heroes, lawyer Victoria Conroy and paranormal investigator Darrel Boone, have been called to an old Austrian Castle to help recover an ancient and powerful device. Resembling a giant pendulum, it's said that the mystical device can be used to channel strange energies.
If used during the upcoming solar eclipse, the machine could bring an end to the world as we know it — or at least that's what Conroy and Boone are told when they agree to help. The further they delve into the story however, the more complicated the riddle becomes, yet they must solve the mystery before they quite literally run out of time.
This 2002 U.S. release brings several state-of-the-art features to the point-and-click adventure genre, with its 3D game world, high-poly characters, real-time action, and dynamic camera control. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
