Installing this right now, have high hopes after everything Vinny said
I finished this recently and I can honestly say, this was one of the most pleasent adventure games I ever played. I only got stuck once where the game didn't show an icon I could interact with properly, other than that the puzzles always felt logical and I always knew that I was supposed to do. The humor is also tememdous with a ton of references and inside jokes, such as Death complaining that no one dies in this game or a bunch of nerds playing an MMO.
Missed this one, digging the style. As a very 'Terry Pratchett' feel to it.
@Milkman: There were two additional levers in the first room of the Gnome Hole that they did not pull. They tried to activate the first two which were both locked. The other two open the door to the Kitchen and to your own bedroom. From there you can get what you need to kill the slime, get the map and finish building your parachute.Also, I demand part 2!!

Man that's not fair, because the spacebar icons were totally not over those levers. I got stuck exactly where they got stuck because the spacebar misled me. Now I'm midway into chapter 3 of 5 and haven't been stuck since.
So frustrating to watch! They pulled the two levers that don't work and then skipped over the two that do something.
This game is really awesome. Got it after the QL, which was hilarious, and can't put it down, it's so good!
Guys, adventure games are fucking dumb. This QL is awesome, but adventure games are just dense and painful.
This is an adventure ass adventure game but it doesn't look bad at all.
Just picked this up after watching the QL. Been forever since I've gotten an adventure game. I was thinking about picking up the Walking Dead during the Steam sale but didn't for whatever reason and earlier today I found out PSN+ members will get it for free in a week!
Looks like it's Adventure Game August for me :P
This game looks great. Stylistically, it reminds me a bit of King's Quest VII for some reason.
I might have to get this just to work out how to get rid of that damn slime!
Switch to Sid and put the hamster in the microwave. ^_^
Goodie, nothing like a relaxed gaming session playing a solid adventure game.
Next up, I need a Steam release for Gray Matter as well.
@The_Nubster: You're dense and painful :P
This game looks great. Very funny and charming.
This looks ultra-charming. I'm definitely buying it this weekend, even though I have played very few adventure games in my life.
@dropabombonit: Loving the voice acting on that basis alone.
@The_Nubster: Oh man you're right. All those years I spent enjoying adventure games, all of those amazing adventure games at the top of my "favorite games of all time" list, all for nothing. Damn, I was a fool. Thank god I have someone like you who can show me what to think for myself. I'd almost be a free person without it. It's good to be a sheep.
You don't need me to validate your taste in video games, man. I'm just some guy on the internet.
@AssInAss: haha indeed, me too, scooped up the special edition on steam at the new release price :), great looking game :)
The voice acting in this game is hella Welsh, I expected one of the voice actors to just say: "I'm from Wales"
Wish in general some larger segment of the game industry had continued down this pre-rendered path. From adventure games to Final Fantasy 7-9. Would be curious to see a huge budget game like those.
Thanks for the quick look, convinced me to buy it! Thanks @Vinny :D
This game reminds me a lot of Dun Morogh.
I can't believe Vinny found a way to reference Daikatana in this QL.
I- I just- FOUR! There are four levers and you only pulled two!
OMFG this quick look drove me crazy. Pick up the slime pot and put it on the stove!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys even had this idea earlier. When you came back to the kitchen there was a hand icon on the pot with slime. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
edit. looked it up and im wrong. but still gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I know they hate when people say this, but maybe and ER candidate? I think a point and click adveture game would work well as an ER. Especially since its easy to get stuck playing them alone! I mean Vinny and Jeff made it through all of P4's poorly explained search quests!
i was actually surprisingly impressed by this game.
"Slit me wrists" had me laughing for a while. Nice and relaxing QL, this one. Wouldn't have minded watching them play this for another hour or two.
I remember when my mom caught me peggin' it.
this looks really fun!
@JohnLivingston: I figured that was it. Hehe, I love Jeff and Vinny quicklooks, but I just facepalmed for the last 10 minutes as Vinny kept mousing over the two levers with the big different icons and just saying "Nope! Not those!". Big goober, the icons vanish when there isn't anything else you can do! >_<
YES!!! need more Vinny & Jeff!
Need another ER with Vinny and Jeff!!!
I feel like we don't get that many jeff and vinny quick looks. this should be fun
God dammit, that little gnome's accent is so charming!
This game has been on my wishlist at Gamersgate for a few years now. It had been out so long I was puzzled to see a quick look of it on GB! Never thought it would get a Steam release, that's awesome.
Game looks really good as i am a fan of adventure. Was surprised to find this came out in 2010. Seems like the recent Steam release is what prompted this QL
Hey, this looks pretty good!
very impressed by the quick look, I decided to pick it up!
This game is actually pretty funny. That's nice to see, an obscure adventure game that's actually rather charming and funny and not a giant piece of shit like that one game with the Literal Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
Adventure games! Always terrible.
Awesome QL Vinny and Jeff. Not knowing the solution is killing me though. I may have to pick this game up to satisfy my curiosity.
There is a sesame street style muppet on the cover of this game! o__o
The next breakthrough in adventure games is to Auto-look/take all items in a room.
"I'm gonna go home and slit me wrists!"
My goodness that's a charming game. Slow, but delightful! Aside from the facial animation, it looks amazing, too. Very unusual to see such an animated adventure game all full of unique motions and fun stuff. I'm impressed!
That puzzle with the icicle is really similar to the one in Yesterday.
