About this gameTomes: Layne's Discovery, is a relatively short (took beta testers between 45 minutes and 2 hours) and story-driven game that revolves around a young man with a litany of personal problems. Through investigations and a fair amount of seeing his way through internal crises, Layne eventually stumbles upon the Tomes, and a new mystery begins.

AGS Panel Review
"Layne's discovery is (hopefully) the first in a series of investigative adventures from Domithan. It's a good all round shortish game with some lovely touches, a fun deduction system and a decent level of polish."
4 people commented on this game (newest first):
I'm usually a sucker for graphics, but this kept me hooked even though I felt it was lacking visually.
The graphics are good and the author obviously added a lot of polish. The music and sound effects are well fitting and the sound editing was flawless. The interface had a nice feeling to it, and because of that, it played better than most other adventure games.
The investigative game mechanics have a lot of potential, but I got the feeling that the crime scenes were too short and simple. Layne was obviously learning a lot more about the crime than I was, which I guess makes him the player, not me.
The game is worth playing and I'm looking forward to the following installments.
