Loved the game - Thoughts:ideas:other
« on: December 03, 2010, 02:41:39 PM »
 :) Congrats on such an awesomely done game, I just happened to stumble across the web site thinking, what will this be like, 2 hours later, and after twiddling my fingers, i install it and have the normal problems, its not working, come here to the forums and fix that right away, just turned my settings down all the way, ran in window mode, and went along my happy way.

Eps1: Enjoyed it to the end,the very short end. I was confused i thought maybe it was like another game i played where you play the intro of the game and it does the credits then continues, but really it was over and i was in shock, I spent all that time downloading it and it was over, good thing there was eps2, i almost gave my hopes up and deleted it. I enjoyed it, though i understand it was a long trip to get to that point of it, i think you guys did a wonderful job.
Rank:****

Eps2:Very interesting story continuation, when i play games i like to leave my mind open and just go with the flow, even to the point where i miss the obvious things, i was stumbled at one point where i could not find ali
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):
I enjoyed the puzzles and wish some could of been a little bit more thinking on it. I have great ideas for puzzles in games but im sure you guys got that all figured out. Great job cant wait for eps3.
Rank:*****

Narrator: I was surprised by the fact it was a woman's voice, no offense. After playing the other kings quest i was used to the mans voice, Very great though, i was not annoyed by the same repetitive sayings she says, it was clear, Though, there should be an option to turn the narrator voice off, For those who are annoyed quickly by repetitive sayings. Loved it though great job! Loved the sarcasm as well
Rank:*****

Graphics:I was surprised to be honest, no i was not expecting 2d graphics, but i was not expecting smooth running animations, you guys delivered, I enjoyed it, after i worked out the kinks i everything ran smoothly, You guys got a great team running this show keep it up!
Rank:*****

Music and sound:Blew my mind. That simple, LOVED the music, the sounds, everything ran GREAT!
Rank:*****^

Puzzles:The puzzles in the game were good, i liked the humor behind some of them and i liked the response of putting some things together, some simple, others way out there. I wish there was more of an in between point, That is the only thing that was a let down for me, I got all the puzzles, one of the last one was difficult for me
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):
. That went a little out there, but over all the puzzles were okay, i wish they took a little bit more time to do. But overall good
Rank:****

I love where this is going, and im glad i happen to stumble on such a great project you guys have going, I know im but one voice in the wind, but i still want to give you guys kudos for doing such great work, and again as im sure most of us here, cant wait to see eps.3 But don't rush, take your time, surprise us with something more, Ive read and seen it took 10 years to get this far, and that is awesome you guys did this.
keep it up!

Hi Ultima, welcome to the forums! And thanks so much for your kind words, I'm glad you really enjoyed the game. :)

I think you'll be happy with Ep 3--there are more puzzles and a greater range of difficulty and types as well. I'm excited to see how people like it!

One of the (many) awesome things about the team is that they actually take the time to listen to all of the "voices in the  wind." They take everyone's suggestions into consideration, so it always pays to let them know what you're thinking! :)
