Developed and released in mid-July 2012 by the talented R.M. de Boer Software, Snow Hill is the studio’s first foray into point-and-click adventures. The game has already landed in the Top 20 for Adventure and Puzzle Games in the US and UK and has received excellent ratings from passionate fans.
The story begins with a younger girl named Chloe who seeks answers about her childhood. After her adopted mother passes away, Chloe sifts through her belongings to find a newspaper clipping about the murder of a family in a town called Snow Hill.
A classic point-and-click adventure, your role is to explore Snow Hill and chat with the townspeople. Along the way you must collect items to add to your inventory; these collections advance you in the game and guide you closer to solving the mystery.
