Ceville is/was the first and the last shot made by Kalypso Media/Realmforge Studios to create an adventure game which is similar to their previous published successful Jack Keane of Deck13.

Its a traditional adventure with two playable characters, was praised a lot on its release esp by Monkey Island fans, almost all reviews had rated it well, some said “a welcome return to the Golden Age of animated adventure gaming”

The gameplaying is fair difficult or i can say just a little notch below Hard.

The Challenge last until the 21st of June.

I’ve started it, saw the intro and left the throne room. Never played it, seems a bit like Book of Unwritten Tales.

glad you like it from the beginning, i always hated it and that ceville at 1st scene of the game, it took me three times of starting and quitting until i discovered what a gem it was as it gets much better than this just a bit afterwards.

uh doest he look like a resemblance for Qadaffi with his facial hair, head wear and walking stick.  Grin

it seems i don’t remember anything of my 1st play of it, long while ago, but that’s is good, eh?

i left the torture chamber, and i like how it gets harder from a scene to the other gradually, it seems there were other adventures using the same technique of growing difficulty, but i just can’t seem recall.

The game seems very strong on puzzles now, well integrated, i like how they reveal themselves in contrast like you gotta to this to do that, and so on.
not much of a story or background…so far.

this situation reminds of that joke when the little kid told his dad that he is the 1st at his class .... while there was only him at that class.

i give back the hand to Oscar to choose what is next.

I’m pretty sure that isn’t within the rules.

I quote section 9 paragraph 32 of the Adventure Gamers Challenge Statute of 2016:
  Whosoever hands a Challenge to a person deemed to be a Challenger within the definition provided by the Act, the Challenger may not thereafter on completion of the Challenge hand back the Challenge to the original Challenger. If the Challenger however does this, the Challenger deserves a big smack on the bottom.

doest that contradicts with Sec:7 Par:11: you can’t hit the bottom without the participant permission.

Just for a quick update since the deadline is almost over, I’ve not made much progress, still on Act 1. Game seems ok, just not the best time to play. I’ll probably get back to it someday.
