In case you're wondering, the first release of The Secret Order isn't present on Steam. There is a fourth episode that wasn't included either.

Also, none of the games has a DRM-Free version.

Quoting: GuestI can confirm that Artifex Mundi games are not DRM-free, or at least that they require Steam. I tried launching Clockwork Tales with Steam closed, and it launched Steam automatically.

I tested using the steam_appid.txt file with some of their games (Grim Legends 3, Mythic Wonders) and they worked without opening steam.

I have most of the Artifex Mundi games and really enjoy them. I find them really relaxing, the stories are well written and if you care about steam stats they're really easy to get all the Achievements and get a "Perfect Game" stat in your steam profile. I've 100% completed 10 of them.

I've always liked hidden object games & I have to say the Artifex Mundi games are some of best of the genre, from the graphics & music to the storylines they are top notch all the way, I already have 25 of the 34 games they've published so far & plan to get the full set at some point.

I've always loved adventure games. Hidden object games are simpler than most adventure games, but they do scratch the itch a bit. Plus, I get serious laughs out of the often terrible voice acting and scripts. I just got the bundle after seeing this because there are a few I don't have.

I might bite on this. I haven't played a hidden object game in a while, but they're not that far removed from point & click adventures, which I love, and they tend to include some beautiful artwork.

If Artifex had translated their games to Spanish, my wife had bought all of them long time ago. They translate to all world languages but spanish and portuguese... so sad.

Most Artifex games are traslated to spanish... If not on Steam, they are on Bigfish...
The bighfish games client runs fine via winE..

Some games that aren't in spanish on Steam, are in spanish on bigfish and viceversa...
You will have to compare manually.

The good thing about the Bigfish versions is that you can try them for free for an hour.
