Mysteries of the Undead The Cursed Island
In Brief
Mysteries of the Undead The Cursed Island is a hidden object game with lots of mini games included.

You can see mostly positive Steam community reviews of The Cursed Island HERE and other reviews, technical issues, and advise on finding hidden objects via the Big Fish forums HERE
Also, if you need further help you can see a full set of ten walk-through videos (spoiler alert) from Meridas 'Play with Heart' group HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
The Game
A famous scientist virologist is the protagonist. She is invited to take part in an expedition to the island, where many years ago the outbreak of an unknown virus disease wiped out its population. A tribe used to live in the island, they believed in existence of an evil spirit turning people into bloodthirsty zombies. The spirit had been confined into a totem which was hidden in a secret temple to keep it under control and never let free. And so it was for many centuries until the island became a resort.

Ashampoo-Snap-2020-05-24-10h46m06s-006
Once, a tourist lost his way in the forbidden lands and came across a road to the temple. He found the totem and casually broke it. The spirit was released and the deadly virus spread all over the island. But even being broken the totem possesses power to constrain the virus spreading outside the island. The totem's parts were hidden by tribal successors, and being found these parts could get survivors saved and zombies exterminated.
The expedition arrived to the destination point on "Perseus" - a huge floating platform. The team has to save the island and prevent the virus from further spreading.

Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:
Don't forget to check out the Epic Game store for the latest freebies HERE. The latest game is the base game for Sid Meir's Civilization VI
Also check out Reddit's Free Games on Steam (These may fluctuate over the week, so it's worth checking daily because there have been quite a few developers offering their commercial games for free during the lock-down - if you see a game, just open your Steam client and search for the game in the store; if it's still available free you'll see that they are 100% off, (though some of the giveaways are via other sites like Alienware; though I advise not following any links to the givekey.ru site as I believe it is a scam site. Read the comments for each giveaway and you'll see the genuine ones. Those with a Steam url, just require you to visit the appropriate store page via your Steam client and you should find the green buy button says 100% off, if it doesn't, it means the giveaway is over. The site is updated frequently, so if a game is no longer available it's usually tagged with an 'Over' icon. Hurry though because these free games don't stay free long. Once added to your account they become permanently attached.
You can also get loads of free DRM free games from Indie Gala and HERE. They have recently added a few more games that look worthwhile, including Construct: Escape the System, Doodle Devil, Airport Madness World Edition, Naval Warfare, Lovely Planet, Dreamscapes: The Sandman: Premium Edition, Waste Walkers Subsistence plus loads more. Most are windows versions, but you'll find some also include Mac versions
Finally check Delenns threads for other freebies both Steam and Non Steam titles HERE and HERE. You'll find links to a Witcher card game plus The Witcher Enhanced Edition from GOG as well as the latest pre alpha version of Unreal Tournament (similar graphics to Unreal Tournament 3).

Have downloaded twice, unzipped and tried to install, the wrap gets clearance (yes I know to turn off AVG for games from GGotD) but the game fails to install, in fact install fails to initialize. Does not bode well for the quality of materials put out by this developer if the game won't even install. Hard to be positve this way!
Please do let me know if there is some other way to get this to work, I was looking forward to trying it out.

Some buggs. You can't pick upp the Trident and give it to Neptun and you can't pick upp the pump and fill the inflated beach ball.

Ok Win x64 Pro on D: drive. My initial take pre d/l was cheap price, Toomky is iffy quality, HOG is an old concept now. But turns out to worth shot fans.
Just did bit tutorial & a hog page. Casket turns out to be a clutch/jewelry box found by random clicks (no penalty or timer). Now & then a click might miss like I hit the key in bag & never took (needs 2x click sometimes), but when hit Hint (refills fast) the tip was to bag & click key once was accepted.
Overall 8/10 for casual fans. Pros might see 7/10 for 'raw' look. Not as fun as recent Fall of the New Age but less 'work'. Will keep, yrmv. Thanks.

Gave this a thumbs up, but tried to change it, after attempting to play. Yes...not my sort of game, but that aside, I found the play very slow, and dull, and not intuitive at all. After trying to get water for a half an hour, I just gave up and uninstalled. Yesterdays game is enjoyable, and silly, but a good time spender. The zombies just didn't do it for me today, but thanks for letting me try it.

I tried to install but when it tried to connect to this site to verify it says "Failed to connect. Try again later"

Is there a problem on your end?

Thanks, looking forward to this one.

I don't have any antivirus running. I tried rebooting and also tried another download of the game. Still can't connect to this site to confirm. I'll keep trying throughout the day.

Downloaded & installed fine on Windows 7, 64-bit. It opens up in full screen and you can't see your cursor. You need to navigate over to settings to be able to click on the Windowed version. You may have to set that a second time after you create your profile.

Be aware that some of the items asked for in Hidden Object scenes may not be called what you're used to. For example, in the first HO scene, a "Vacuum Flask" is a "Thermos Bottle" :-/ There's no voice acting in this, just background music. It's a bit dull so far. I've made it past the cogwheel puzzle so far. I "did" run the Tutorial, but there's an ancient-looking object in the lower left corner of the screen with symbols, but the game doesn't tell you anything about it, what it's for or anything. Hopefully, it will eventually. The graphics are so-so..maybe they're appropriate for a zombie story. ;-)

It looks like an okay game, just not too exciting so far. And be aware that your mouse pointer doesn't always change when you mouse over an area.

DelennDax7, actually, if you are bilingual in British and American it's easier. "Vacuum flask" is a perfectly descriptive term for a thermos bottle (which actually came from a brand name, "Thermos".)

Downloaded and installed no problem (Windows 10) Looks like just my sort of game. The graphics are clear, and the scenes are not so dark and gloomy as they often are in this genre. Thank you!

Here, W10 64bit, the game installed without a hitch. It's a new game for me and I really like it. It's challenging enough, with nice graphics and enough clues when needed. Enjoy your Sunday (at last we got some rain here, well.... a drop and a half) and stay safe.

After downloading files, isn't possible instal game. Where is problem?

Reply   |   Comment by Majk  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Majk, you didn't give us much information. Do you get the game's "setup program" screen, or not? If not, probably the GGOTD security wrapper software is being "stopped" by your AV. I use avast! and I know I have to turn its Behaviour Shield off for a few minutes to allow the GGOTD security wrapper/"activation" to work and for the game's own installer/setup screen to appear. Obviously (?) I turn the Shield ON again once that setup screen appears! You may need to do something similar on your PC, but you didn't say which AV you're using.
If there is a problem during the game's own setup program (NOT the GGOTD "connecting/activated" process) then please say what happened or didn't happen, any messages, etc.
Hope that helps.

Majk, I had no issues under Windows XP. The usual advice is to disable the antivirus. My AVG antivirus does understand that the files downloaded from this site do not pose a threat, and you may not disable it.

Reply   |   Comment by Vladimir  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Majk, check if your A/V program is blocking the Setup program from running.

Reply   |   Comment by BobbyA  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Majk, I always have to reboot in Safe Mode (or turn off my virus protection software) before I can even download the game. So, I download & install before I go back to full mode.

Reply   |   Comment by DelennDax7  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Majk, a little more detail would be nice! The installer won't run at all? Did you get any error messages? Did you remember to disabled your antivirus (I also put my firewall into "game mode accept" as well).

Reply   |   Comment by Therese Shellabarger  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Majk,
Very often your antivirus program gives a false positive to the wrapper which protects the download after the 24 hrs. Deactivate it for the short process of activating the game and it will install. Don't forget to reactivate afterwards.

Reply   |   Comment by Anu  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Majk, It will not run on Win XP

Reply   |   Comment by Quinton  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Replying to my own reply: I found that if I used the advanced DPI settings to give the program control, this fixed the problem of the game not running at all. If however, the game would not have installed, I would suspect firewall/antivirus issues which are easily gotten around. I also ran the game using Windows 7 compatibility, if that helps anyone. It ran fine on my Windows 10 machine after these fixes.
