    I've spent 20 minutes with this game, and it's NOT good.

    It's like a 3D point and click adventure. Sort of a mystery story. You're trying to figure out what happened after you've been in a car accident. I wandered around the invironment for 20 minutes. The only thing I was able to do was flush a toilet. NOTHING HAPPENS IN THIS GAME!! Sorry for yelling.

    Pros:
    I couldn't find any.

    Cons:
    The controls are awkward
    The screen shots look better than the actual game
    Movement is too slow and you can't run
    The puzzles are extremely vague and unintuitive

    If you love point and click adventures you could do way better than this. This game seems like it was made by non-gamers. It's just not fun.

    Well that's disappointing to hear as I was hoping for a Dear Esther type of aesthetic but instead we have a POS with no leg to stand on.
     
  8. I've been considering getting a touchscreen laptop/tablet combo to try and play those games as though they're on an iPad. But no idea if that would work.

    I've considered it too but found the prices to be mad. The surface pro is good but the price tag on it is phenomenally high! $200 just for the keyboard!
     
  10. Eek!
    I would also need to do extensive research and find out if a large number of the games I want to play would work with touch and on those machines.

    This reminds me of the kind of game that would have enthralled me ... around 1990 or so. Sounds like I should pass!

    Hey i love retro stuff, its just the fact it sounds like it doesnt play well which puts me off

    Games in 1990 were great, look at us now, 2015 and people are matching candies or blowing up pigs with flying birds, or having to play a game and then wait 12 hours for a timer to finish. Dont think we've come too far ;)

    Why ? Not everyone wants that. Not bothered by game centre at all, i dont think its a 'game centre' style game at all. I have MAME on my phone, that doesnt have game centre or iCloud but is one of the best apps i've got. If this was a high score type game with achievements for various scores/points in the game fair enough. But this type of exploration game doesnt need cheap achievements just for people to get an ego boost.

    Do you have to moan about this in nearly all your posts ?

    Anyway bought this earlier and very impressed. Looking forward to exploring this vast world. Controls work well and i love the idea of the game. Graphics are really good as well. Impressed
     
  17. Hmm may have to just take the plunge on this one.

    So it's like one of those click escape flash games?
