Really want to play this. Especially after the years of buildup. I kind of wish they didn't stick with the name, but it's not a big deal. Might just seem weird 10-15 years from now. But I still have a lot to play. I've barely touched Sinking City or Metal Gear on GBC. And I still haven't finished the new Fire Emblem.
Apparently this game is only like 90-120 minutes long. Which is great! Short games are my jam anymore. I'm looking forward to playing through it this weekend for sure. And it's on sale for $5 off for the launch, too.
I made this my one game to get this month. It's 25% off right now at launch and I had over 800 points to use. So I nabbed it for under $10. Hearing that it's only 90-120 min long, if true, makes me happier I paid a budget price for it.
Finished it this morning! It's definitely the tightest point-and-click adventure I've played, for sure. Polished presentation, no downtime, and none of the frustration that's so typical of the genre (though I am still stumped on a couple of the tasks, thankfully you can finish the game while skipping one or two in each zone).
It only took 2-3 hours for me to get to the end, but doing so does unlock a To Do As Well list that gives you some more challenges, some of which you may have already completed (I had 4 of them already crossed off). I'll definitely go back and do those and the tasks I skipped, and maybe the Time Trials-esque challenges where you have to do the regular To Do lists before the church bell rings.
I wonder if the game's doing as well as its popularity online seems to indicate.
Uh, wow. Guess that answers that question. Glad to see this one's such a huge hit.
Cool to see Jedi Outcast so high, too! I'd consider picking that up, but I feel like it's a game that benefits tremendously from mouse/keyboard. Having access to all the force powers and weapons at once on different keys is so much better than having to scroll through them.
I was about to say what the heck is Membrane but it's 99% off so like... what is it a couple of cents? Still, it's a weird system that lets some nobody game rise to the top seller list just because it does a massive sale. I know a lot of indie devs that talk about exploiting this to get their games onto lists.
