Wow! This was a very unique point and click game. It was well done and I hope to see more like these in the future.
I've never had this much fun looking at the alphabet
Second edition coming soon hopefully.
As you read through the book, you'll be able to explore and receive different objects. Most of them can be used right away whereas two have to be combined together to form a new object. Hint : you'll have to lit up something.
It's better to take note on a piece of paper so that you can link the clues to each puzzle and know your progress. Two pointers for those who're stuck.
1. Mirror + a diamond-shape clue > numerical puzzle
2. Rainbow + a clue on the last page > arrows puzzle
Sound and visual effects are appropriate when interacting with a clickable object.
I figured out everything in good time except for the location of the coffee section. That part stopped me cold -- it's one of those parts of a point-and-click game where I want to say the author tricked me even though that isn't fair to say. All I will say is that I prefer to look for clues in the game, not in the user interface, and the coffee section didn't help.
The rest was okay. Animation was minimal, and the music was meh, though it felt nice discovering the part of the book that could change it. But when that new music source caused one of the pictures to change (you know which one), that was a major red herring, and I spent another few minutes cycling music, turning pages, and cycling again. I thought the yak and the candle were red herrings, too, but those were actually pretty nice hints for what I was supposed to do elsewhere.
It took about an hour to solve, but I spent the vast majority of that time clicking on everything in hopes that *something* would happen. This game is a good concept for bringing together a wide variety of tools, and it's a fine game for connecting tools in one place to tasks in another place, but there was no help whatsoever for knowing where to start.
Too bad a table of contents wouldn't have worked ;-)
Very creative idea! I got stuck and quit but it was woth the half hour I'm sure that if I had more patience that I could have solved it.
