What's New in Version 1.13
Becomes a grind
This game starts off wonderful. Beautiful music, mystery, fun graphics, humor, and a sense of wonder.
That disappears over time, when you realize that you'll spend most of your time wandering around, even when you do know what you need to do. Sometimes you'll even have to wait for certain phases of the moon. The real moon. You can change the phase in game, but it involves (once again) a lot of walking around.
The scope of this game was too large for the landscape, and developers got creative to make it longer. It's clever, but it's just far too tedious. I've had this game for some time, and I never got around to beating it. I haven't deleted it because I always said "maybe someday" but I'm now realizing "someday" will never come.
Perfectly captures the mental picture we carry in our heads of the games and stories we loved as kids. Not the actual games, it brings to life the enthrallment and the mood and the adventure we imagined we had.
I wish for this dream in my hands to remain far longer than the fleeting moments this game lasts. A masterpiece, a cherished memory made real.
I'm irritated that I spent .99 on this. I gave this game 30 minutes based on the kind of cool atmospheric promo video. Was hoping something cool would happen but honestly you just wander around this poorly rendered landscape hoping something interesting will happen. I can tell you the 5 star ratings are surely from the game developers.
Move on bystander - nothing to see here.
