Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose Collector's Edition is a fantasy casual game developed by the company, Blue Tea Games. It is the first game in the Dark Parables series, which consists of six other games that each features a different fairy tale. The game’s plot takes place in Edinburgh, Scotland and the player assumes the character of a detective who is tasked to find out the real story of Sleeping Beauty and protect her against the spirit of the evil witch who put a curse on her. In this game, the handsome prince’s kiss wakes up everyone else instead of Sleeping Beauty. It also causes all of the briars around the castle to disappear. A thousand years have passed and the briars are back to crawl over the castle and the entire city. The player must determine the cause of this threat in order to eliminate the briars forever.
In order to solve all of these mysteries, the player must complete a series of hidden object games. Each level comes with a list of items to find, and once they are all located, a piece of a crucial object is revealed. Once these pieces are complete and the object is formed, it can be used in subsequent tasks in the game.
