Greetings, all.  New poster here.  After having played through Eps. 1&2 a couple times, and noticing more and different things with each playthrough, I thought I'd come here and toss some ideas back and forth about upcoming developments/puzzles.  You've got some interesting theories going so far!  Here's what I've got to add to the pot.

Welcome to the forums, Aurelind!

I'm not going to give anything away, but you do have quite an eye for details!

Thanks!  Like I said, I didn't notice half of that on my first playthrough, but I do try to pay close attention.  ;D

And don't worry, I wouldn't want you to tell me if I was right.  That would ruin the fun!  I'm content to register my guesses for the record, debate out my trope-spotting with other players, and wait with bated breath for the next installment...

I'm not going to give anything away, either, but that's a very well-reasoned analysis. Your speculations certainly seem plausible.

Wow Aurelind! I'm very impressed, I hadn't even thought of some of that!!

I theorize that Jamie and Adam will appear in EP3 totally destroying the continuum of the KQ universe.

Do I win?  :suffer:

I hadn't given that much thought to the spell ingredients, but the nightshade one especially sounds right.  And I had a similar thought regarding the dead pea pods and the book in the library.  It kept bugging me that the game wouldn't let Graham pick up one of the peas.  Kind of like how you couldn't pick the nightshade flower in episode one.  You knew you needed to, but it just wouldn't let you touch it.  Ah well.

Quite an eye indeed, I'd say! I'm very impressed! I'm so bad with the puzzles in any game I keep having to send e-mails out to my fellow team members asking for the solutions... I'm a bad gamer, I know...

To be fair, a number of them have changed over time, especially in Episode 3. :)

Yup! We did a lot of beefing up some puzzles in Episode 3. :) I'm really excited to see how people like it, it's turned into possibly my favorite episode as well! My favorite so far at least, anyways.

Indeed they will. I'm expecting more requests in the hint forum and more people getting stumped!

There's a pretty good range of difficulty in the puzzles - I can think of a couple that are likely to stump a lot of people. :D
Some of the puzzles I can't judge the difficulty, since I knew the solutions before the puzzles were actually in the game. That's what I get for reading the code. :P

Well if it's any indication of their difficulty, I have trouble completing them. I keep having to bug Weldon to send me the answers... But yeah, episode 3 has certainly changed over time. A LOT. I think all you fans out there will like episode 3 a lot. A lot of work has been put into it, but it will all pay off in the end. Based on what I've played, it is indeed the best of the episodes so far.
