I actually like the meandering, lazy pace. I’d actually be disappointed a bit if they started ramping up the pace too soon. I want more areas/time to just wander around and explore. More than happy to keep things nice and slow.

The whole point is to praise her commitment and determination in refusing to let her inexperience with the language deter her. That says far, far more about Astrid’s character than pretending her English was flawless from the start.

“And indeed, there were a few humbling edits in those early days.”

While this is a minor comment and you eventually build on it to praise her character, if you’re writing a eulogy of a beloved colleague, maybe it would be best not to use that platform to deride her English skills.  Just a thought.

Abandoned was excellent. I haven’t had that much fun since last month’s Mu Complex. Why can’t there be full fledged games like these? I pay $10 a month to play casual games, most of which don’t hold a candle to these 2 freebies.

I agree that there does not appear to be any hint at all for the water pipe puzzle, and I myself just ignored it until it was getting really strange that a clue had yet to appear. Since the solution is to click the buttons labeled with the water symbol, I can forgive the lack of hints. And that is only one tiny part of the game, the rest is all very well hinted at.

In my mind this is the epitome of the Myst-like genre. it is an amazing game.

After the 2014 Aggie Awards I decided to check a bit further on Wadjet Eye Games and found this interview. It is still valid and very interesting, following Dave Gilbert obviously jump into cold water around 2006, going commercial and winning that award in 2014. I suppose his motivation is still the same, and that´s a good sign. Less epics, more shorter games and dense, gripping storytelling - I couldn´t agree more.

Yes, we are. Probably next week.

From the review: “dialog has a tendency to feel like a chore.”


This. So much this. I basically couldn’t continue because of it, but also in general the game feels like it is hand-holding the story. It seems like it’s best for very young audiences.

I will take your word for it, thank you for the reply.

You’re just jumping to conclusions. It’s not nearly the spoiler you assume it is.

That said, I’ve never been particularly happy with the pic for purely artistic reasons, and had to settle on that one as the best of a weak lot. Feel free to send us a nice selection of better screen grabs to choose from.

I would like to know if you are planning to do a review of the episodes of this game? I would REALLY like to know if there are any speed or fighting moments involved…

Are you kidding me with that huge spoiler on the front page of your web site? I am currently playing through this game for the first time and I am pretty sure I just had a major story twist ruined.

By the way, for the next year I would like to suggest a new category - for best make up: Grim Fandango will be up for voting, as well as maybe a new episode of the Journey Down… Maybe also a new category for worst jokes would be a good idea Smile

Because the game described by its own developers as a “role-playing experience” is not considered an adventure at the only place that matters to the Aggies.

Why was CONSORTIUM not considered amongst all those games considered for awards in all those categories?!  Seriously, how is this game THAT over-looked??

It is often referred to as an adventure game (among other genres), and has over 20 voice actors and 4000 lines of recorded dialog as part of it’s fabric….
