I've been playing a few underground games recently and glad I stumbled upon this thread.

I just played chapter 1 and 2. My verdict? EXCELLENT! I'm happy that you used a point and click interface with the classic left-click mouse hold controls.

My comments are similar to others:

- a little more background story would be nice
- chapter one is a little short
- graphics were excellent and movement smooth (she did look like she was floating in certain parts but no biggie for me)
- audio is excellent
- obstacles were fairly intuitive but not too easy (throw in a few really hard ones if you can though )
- loadtime was quick (I'm on 3mb DSL)

You've already addressed some of the other issues in your blog (e.g. having to reload screens, help menu, etc.)

Will you be offering this as a downloadable flash executable at anytime? I think as more chapters come out, players with slower connections would benefit from chapter downloads.

One last thing. I'm curious to know what games are your favourite games since it seems like your game really hits the spot for me.

I can't wait for the next chapters. Keep up the great work!

When you try to use the door, she says its locked "stange" Should be "strange" And I got the sliding thing too, and also recommend making the message a little more clearer. I think I got the gist of it but it was a bit garbled. And then I got stuck after I had the three starting items, lol.

Default Feedback

Thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it!

I think I might offer a downloadable version of the game once I've wrapped up the storyline. Until then, keeping it online helps me address bugs and smooth out the wrinkles without issuing a million versions.

In terms of adventure games that I enjoy...to tell the truth I've not played that many myself. (Just the usual suspects...Myst, Riven, etc.) Inspiration for me comes from other media (problem solving movies like Sneakers, old episodes of MacGyver...). I love any storyline that's clouded in mystery (X-Files, Lost, The Fugitive)

Thanks again for playing. I hope to release Chapter 3 shortly...

We're waiting in anticipation! Hey, maybe we can make a game out of this: What will be there first, the third installment of Something Amiss, or the third installment of Christmas Quest?
