Everyone seem pretty far in the game...

I've been stuck since last night! I can't get past the locked door at the Wonder Isle, but I

In Episode 3 that door is no longer locked.

Thanks for the help!
I guess I wasted all this time on the door, I assume it's a glitch from the patch version (Still says 'rats! it's locked!). I just downloaded the full version. I'll have to start over...  :-\
Cheers!

That's extremely odd, does it actually still show the lock on it visibly, and if you load up your last saved game from Episode 2 does it still have the same problem?

We're looking at patching the game to resolve the issue with conversations when continuing and if this is a major problem I want to fix it as well.

Yes, the lock is still on even though I unlocked it in episode 2. I deleted my whole game now, I'm starting over with the full version. I figured I might as well restart now rather than later...
But yesterday when I downloaded it I reloaded from episode 2. When I got to the door, I was pursuing that wheel thing (checkers I think) with the shell and it relocked behind it. I restarted it 3 times and it locked every time.
I figure you are already aware of this, but the other reason I restarted with the new full version is that I couldn't leave many conversations, it had no ''goodbye'' option. (with Edgar, Genie and Jollo, maybe others too). 
Thought I would let you know, if you are trying to fix glitches.
But I am so happy this game is finally out! I am 12 years old all over again. Yay! :rofl:

Yep, locked tight with a chain and keypad. Rather odd because that creature went through it with the shell without a problem. I'm playing the full version BTW.

Did you do the "continue" thing Rudy?  I saw this happen before on a continue but had verified that we fixed it at one point.

I just did some testing and discovered some stuff.

My first try was to start episode 3 by "continue from episode 2". => door locked
My second try was to restore a game at the end of episode 2 and after the credits rolled to "start the next episode" Again the door was locked.
My third try was to start episode 3 (not "continuing from episode 2") and the door was NOT locked.

When the checkers piece goes through the locked door, you see the door open and the chain and padlock just hanging in place in front of it. Then the doors close again and becomes firmly locked.

There are some more things I found:
- It appears the narrator voice is missing when she says something in the lines of "leaving the smithy alone". The subtitle was there though.
- When placing the skull back in the druids camp, it doesn't show at first but it does when you exit and re-enter the camp.
- the map when you "start episode 3" (not "continue from episode 2") is the map of episode 2 with the sea nymphs location still marked on it. When "continuing from episode 2", it is another map, the same one as episode 1 i believe.

apparently, there's a bug with the save from episode 2. The best way solution right now would be to start the game not continuing from episode 2 but starting a new fresh game at episode 3.

Also, do this WHILE she's trying to kill you.

Ah--okay, if that's your question, then you aren't using the right item just yet.
