I actually really liked the first one. It was a bit short but it's also the first Adventure game I've finished in a long time, other than TellTale episodes. According to Steam it took me 9 hours, but I'm sure a normal pace is probably 7 or so.
The developer description on the Steam page shamelessly begins, "Daedalic Entertainment, once called “Lucasarts from Germany“ [...]"
I must ashamedly admit that I bought it on that line alone but I wasn't disappointed.
