What is wrong with the search function?

For example if I search “The Witness” in game search it comes up with 50 results, none of them being the actual game. I remember using the search successfully before so has something changed?

Are you looking for mention of the game in the forums or the review?  If it’s the latter, use the upper search box.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Yeah, it doesn’t work for me either. Using the upper “Search for games” box btw.

I am talking about the upper search box. The one that says “Search for games”.

Yeah, something seems a bit awry there.  I do get an entry for The Witness (1983) when I search for ‘the witness’ though.

Searching for ‘blow’ will bring up the other The Witness.

I’ve battle with the search for a while…. and believe I’ve made it significantly better :-)

DO let met know if you agree! Searching for Witness, gives you 3 games, the ones that match that.

Yeah, it’s all good now. It’s a far cry from getting 50 seemingly random results. Tongue

That works now, CaliMonk.
