Title: suggestion

Hello, I just found this site and the Silver Lining game last night; I am really enjoying it... I wondered if you would consider adding keystrokes to use instead of clicking the mouse so often? I squeaked past having carpel tunnel years ago, and started using keystrokes instead of the mouse as much as possible then. It makes a big difference to aging hands and wrists. I think the best game for that I've played is Civilization; the oldest versions of the game can be played almost without using the mouse.
I love the textures and subtle reflections in the granite; wonderful colors and design. Thank you for so much enjoyment. My 9 year old friend will be trying this soon, so I have to solve all the puzzles and find all the clues; when she plays, I am a combination audience and helper!

We're glad to hear that your enjoying the game so much! By keystrokes, are you referring to keyboard shortcuts? Because I believe there already are some. I don't actually use that feature myself in any game, so I can't vouch for how well they work, But I believe there are keyboard shortcuts already.

For the cursor modes, yes. But keyboard shortcuts for movement would be nice, too.

I've actually been wondering about using the arrow keys for movement myself... Or the WASD keys as is customary in most modern PC games now.

Using the arrow keys for movement would be best, unless you wanted to remap the cursor mode shortcuts.

Yeah - it would be nice to be able to move with the arrow keys. I'm guessing it would expose a whole lot of ways to get stuck or fall off the world, though. Anyway, it would need a WHOLE LOT of testing!

Very true! If we do add that into the game, it definitely wouldn't be until Episode 4 at the earliest.

Well, it'd be good for exposing bugs, then.

You can't have one without the other... such is the world of computer game development! Still, as a feature it'd be nice, should it be implemented (or can be implemented).
