Shtriga: Summer Camp

In Brief
Shtriga: Summer Camp is a point and click hidden object adventure game

It was originally given away on the 22nd March 2020 where it received a positive 95% from 37 votes with 18 comments which you can see HERE.

If you get stuck, there's a written walk through for the game HERE and you can see some Steam community reviews HERE (we don't a Steam key).

Capture the spirit of a dead witch before she claims another victim! Summer camp has always been about good memories and new experiences. But the children at one particular camp never expected to be terrorized by a murderous ghost! When a mother hires your services as a private investigator to find her missing child, all you know is campers have been disappearing faster than you can say "Rise and shine!"
After you arrive at the camp, you see a black cat morph into a spectral figure, but you still don't know the full nature of what you're facing. However, as you search the ghoulish grounds for clues, solve puzzles designed to stop you dead in your tracks and open doors that reveal bone-chilling new locations, you'll draw ever closer to the horrifying truth. You'll also come to realize there's hope for the missing kids as long as you overcome your fears and press on. If your spine could use a tingle, or your blood a curdle, then play Shtriga: Summer Camp today!

The Game:
This is an eerie story quite intriguing and mysterious; you must save the children before it’s too late. Be prepared to be scared!
Very well executed with astonishing 2d and 3d art.
None! What a pity, it would have helped a lot. However, they did an excellent job by using eerie music to accompany each scene which helps building up momentum.
MUSIC (5/5):
Pretty good! It’s atmospheric and it does reflect the theme of the game.
SFX (Sound Effects) (5/5):
Accurate and appropriate for each active element in the game.
Outstanding art here. Excellent 3d illustrations with animations. I actually had to stop playing a few times to admire the beauty they put in every single detail. Great job!
There are tons of mini games and this makes me so happy; I love ’em! Cute and a little challenging but never too difficult. Mini games require a good amount of focus from your part and definitely make you feel in charge of the situation. Well done!

Very clear to see, the system is the traditional one without any interactive areas, just a list of very well hidden objects to be found in a scene. Interestingly, the objects to be found are not random but related to the game. The areas are well lit and the items, though well blended with the environment, not impossible to be spotted.
Easy tutorial and navigation. There is a drawn map during game play which can help you when you get stuck. When you are stuck, the help button has proven to be vital though you have to wait for it to recharge every single time you use it. A map would have helped a lot because there are tons of beautiful places to explore and sometimes it gets difficult to remember what you were supposed to do with certain items. There is a journal to help you with the quests but a map or a button which doesn’t need recharging when you are looking for a location would have been better. All in all, a very good game to play.

Ive played a short way into the game, and I like it so far. I wish the initial story had click to continue - it went by pretty quickly

I'm not short of hidden objects to play, so I think I'll pass on this one. Just wanted to make a couple of slightly sarcastic comments. First, let me pass on some background that was mentioned in the Big Fish reviews. Some mentioned on that a Shtriga is an Albanian vampire legend.

Now for the snark. So, 1 child goes missing and then adults and children get sick, several die, and then the police quarantine the camp, and more children go missing but nobody seems to be trying to do something about it??? Like Hazmatting all the people out of the camp to quarantined hospital beds. Did no genius conclude that maybe it's something about the environment??? Gee, thanks! LOL. Second, how long has this camp been closed? Years? If not, looking at some of this buildings and rooms in the screencaps that show YEARS of being rundown, what was the name of this camp? Camp Creepy? Camp Dilapidated? ;)

Sorry folks, not complaining about the game, just couldn't resist a little fun poking. Thanks Toomky, GGOTD, and the community.

I downloaded this and tried to install it. I get the giveaway is over dialog box. The countdown says 10H 45M left.

James Rosendahl,

Hi James,

I downloaded and reinstalled the game just now (10pm UK time) and it registered okay. It may be that your security is blocking the outward bound signal; though I don't know whether this would prompt a ''giveaway is over dialog box''?

Nice game until it froze up in the pantry and couldn't find the fish. Tried to restart the game, but it was still frozen in the pantry

Hi everyone I hope you are well. Unfortunately I will be unable to review today's game as I had a D Drive crash which was my WD My Book external drive. I have been busy all throughout the night taking the opportunity to backup my important files, more important my family photos and also my Steam library. I was able to successfully back them but but I am going to do a reformat in the morning which is going to require a lot of time. I should be back in business by Monday. All I can say is thank goodness for SMART warnings to give me the chance to move my stuff to another drive.

sailorbear510 aka Jason,

Sorry to hear of your external drive woes. I hope you sort things out successfully.

I've lost a few over the years, so now do double backups of my most important files. All my family photos are backed up three times (I never reuse the micro SSD's, instead I buy a new one once the once being used is approaching maximum capacity, so as to have an extra back up of the photo's). I lost a whole bunch of holiday snaps several years ago after my daughter dropped the hard drive (it was an old mechanical one). I still have that drive with the intention of eventually sending it to one of those experts who specialize in recovery.

My daughter did Camps International in between leaving sixth form and going to university back in the summer of 2018. She went to Ecuador and did various jobs to help local communities; for example, rebuilding a small village school and repairing a road (patching potholes). While there she had lots of amazing adventures. I gave her loads of spare batteries for her camera and one of those large recharger batteries so that she wouldn't run out of power as some of the places she stayed didn't have the facility to recharge the batteries,. The SSD she used to take videos included such things as swimming with dolphins and lots of footage when she visited the Galapagos Islands. When she returned, on taking it out of the camera, it cracked and was inaccessible, so I sent it to an expert, but he was unable to recover any of the videos. He said SSD's are much harder to recover data from. So we lost everything.

Whiterabbit-uk, Thank you for the sentiments. When I moved from Sacramento to Hayward in California in 2016 I would take train trips to see my Grandma in which would be the last 2 years of her life. I promised her that I would visit her as much as I can and have many photos of her and I visiting together in her care home in Sacramento. Thankfully the backup was successful and later in the afternoon I am going to reformat my laptop to start out fresh and install Steam again as my library had already been moved.

sailorbear510 aka Jason,
For backups, may I recommend Carbonite? They support 'unlimited' data on a drive, can cover external drives and is reasonably priced if you buy the 3-year plan(s). I have been using them for quite a while now and have recovered all of my files more than once (2x crash HDD, 1x new PC). The one drawback I've seen is they don't automatically select "ALL" files in a folder. There are some they don't select by default. But if you select them manually it does back them up.
No, I don't work for them. Just love their service. It's encrypted before it leaves your computer. Files can be recovered individually or by folder

sailorbear510 aka Jason,

Sorry to hear of your grandma's passing. Those images will be precious.

My grandma, whom I lived with frequently over my childhood and teens due to my father working away and my mother in and out of hospital for most of my childhood and youth; so I was 'palmed off' to my fathers parents. Which for me was the best and I attribute my success educationally and in life to their care and foresight in introducing me to many things. My grandma passed the same day as John Lennon on the 8th Dec 1980. It took me a long time to get over her passing. But my memories as well as photo's and cine film ( I have several thousand feet of cine film, and I've been editing out anything that isn't family oriented with a view to having it transferred to digital). Those cine films contain many memories from the early 60's till my grandfathers passing in 1992 and are extremely precious; which is why I'm having them transferred digitally using the frame by frame method so that I can pass copies on to my cousins and aunts.

In case it helps anyone...

For long term storage CDs & DVDs can be an excellent choice, with an expected longevity of 30-100 years. While I haven't been able to find what I consider a reliable source regarding Blu-ray writable discs, user forums indicate dismal longevity often measured in months. My experience is that writable Blu-ray discs are physically more vulnerable than CDs & DVDs, using a film rather than a hard plastic layer for protection. Retail Blu-ray discs [non-writable] are IMHO physically identical to DVDs, but are Very vulnerable to scratches, and a very tiny, near invisible scratch can make the disc unreadable. You can also research M-Disc & archival grade DVDs & Blu-ray writable discs. It doesn't seem like there's a huge market for this sort of expensive media, and you can read reports of manufacturers not actually providing what you paid for [you gonna be around in 100 years to see they cheated you & lied?].



Archiving files to the cloud is a good option, providing the cloud service provider is a company like Microsoft, Amazon, or Google that's almost certain to be around for decades. Cloud storage uses redundant hard disks / SSDs that are monitored & replaced as needed within a fortress-like data center with all sorts of protections, but nonetheless s*** happens and clients have [very rarely] lost data. So it's best to have another copy somewhere, including possibly another cloud service, just to be safe if the data is irreplaceable. One disadvantage is that depending on how you connect to the internet, uploads can be terribly, terribly slow, e.g., cable broadband. Another disadvantage is while you can easily pass a collection of DVDs to the next generation, cloud storage is dependent on someone continuing to maintain the account & if necessary, continuing to pay the bills. Windows is set to natively use OneDrive, so it's the easiest, & though it's a slight bit of work, you can set any folder to be automatically mirrored to your OneDrive account.


External drives are cool, but all drives will eventually fail, even if they've just been sitting in a drawer, so you need redundancy. Drives have been getting cheaper for years, but part of the reason why is that manufacturers are cutting corners, so you will not see the same reliability as even 5 years ago. One problem that you can easily check for is an external drive's temperature while in use with something like Crystal Disk Info. It might take some time searching but you can usually find out the drive manufacturer's specs on how hot a particular drive can get before it starts throttling or having problems, including shortening its lifespan. I assume because it adds cost & size to the drive enclosure, external drives normally lack active cooling, which may be all right for 2.5" [laptop] drives & most SSDs, but not full sized conventional hard disks. You can buy enclosures for one or more drives that do include fans, or use a drive dock & a separate small desk fan. One advantage of buying a drive & enclosure separately is that if the USB circuitry goes bad [which it unfortunately does too often], the drive & its data are still good. Note: there are a Lot of companies selling external housings for NVMe drives, but beware the potential gotchas... the chipsets & their firmware are not all equal, so research before you buy. Also research the temperature characteristics of the drive you plan to use -- some run Very hot. Many of these housings use a sliding cover design with a thermal pad so the case acts as a heatsink, BUT, to make the slide part work the pad does not contact the drive so there's no heatsink or any other cooling in place. It's also a good idea to disconnect external drives when not in use, because ransomware.

Windows itself will let you store data on 2 or more internal or external mirrored drives, so if one drive fails, your data's still safe.


Windows File History can also come in handy, automatically syncing your choice of folders with an external drive or USB stick at intervals you set, or simply every time you insert the USB stick.

mike, excellent info. Let me clarify 1 thing for the folks, to reinforce what you said about blu-rays being so vulnerable to empasize the warning your giving, but talking about the "why" this is true. As you know, mike, Blu-Rays are so fragile because of the nature of way the format works. The laser in a standard CD/DVD burner/player is red. The size (technically because of the size - wavelength - of the light) is larger than a blu-ray's laser. Blue light is smaller/thinner (because it has a smaller wavelength) than red, so, if all other things are equal, the beam is smaller, which is a way to burn more detail on the disc. That's the reason, as again you know mike, that the blu-ray disc can have superior quality (quality takes up space, folks) and more stuff on it than a DVD can. The problem is, the things that hurt discs - scratches, scuff, finger oil smudges, jelly or similar foreign substances, can do much more to impede the reading of a blu-ray than of a DVD, and of a CD, which has the least info. and the widest burned bands of data. All 3 of these formats have ways to recreate a certain amount of missing data based on what's still readable, but, the smaller the data band that's burned on to the disc, the more data is lost by the same size scratch, smudge, etc. on the blu-ray as compared to the other discs. So, to finish with the obvious statement, blu-rays ARE much more fragile as an unfortunate side effect of the design which gives you noticeably better value than a DVD. As the late Gilda Radner, playing her hilariously ultra-annoying TV journalist character, Roseanne Roseanna Danna used to say, "It's always something!"

The one slight silver lining is that blu-ray players are great for playing DVDs and CD, since that smaller beam is so much more forgiving reading those bigger information bands and recreating all the data. You could almost take sandpaper to a CD and still play it on a blu-ray player. I've played DVDs with little problem on a blu-ray that were practically full of scratches.

Oh, well. It's always something! :P

Oops, should also suggest, as per what mike inferred, that that is why you should consider burning data on a DVD, - even though it will hold less - vice a blu-ray, as it may last longer because you can always try to read it with a blu-ray, vice a DVD drive, if it was giving you problems on the DVD drive.

Unfortunately, the big problem with all of these is the laser systems last a lot less long than any kind of disc does. I've seen burners/players go on for years, but have also seen them sort of burn-out - in that they just stop reading anything, in 5 years or slightly less. Laser drives are not considering long lasting devices. So, stockpile some old ones, either for your computer, TV, or sound system, just in case.
