The two levers Vinny missed in the gnomehole would have lead them to the items they needed.

To "peg it" doesn't mean to run away, not sure what that guy was on about. It means to die.

What's the point of an adventure game QL if you just skip all the dialogue? I hope you skip all the shooting parts when you QL Call of Duty 9.

At first I was like, har har, Call of Duty 9! I get the joke, because it's such an annualized franchise, right?

...and then I did the math.

So am I missing something or were there 4 wrenches in front of the levers in the Gnome Hole at first, then Vinnie used two of them, leaving two wrenches (meaning two levers that could still be used) and he just kinda kept ignoring them...

Seems like that lever box had about 4-6 levers and they disappeared as you clicked them, leaving the last 2. Now I have to buy this game to see what they do.

Wilbur Weathervane has a great Welsh accent. Interested to play this.

P.S. Lots of Welsh accents.

It's crazy that with all the Steam deals, $18 just seems like a ridiculous amount of money, even though it's more than a fair price for this game. Oh well, bought it anyway.

This seems kinda interesting, the visuals and animation are pleasant.

Too bad I can't stand an adventure game for more than 20 minutes anymore. For some reason.

I'm a bit conflicted on this one. Being a conversion of a German game I was wary of the voice acting since it often suffers, as someone mentioned. The voicing on the Steam trailer seemed awful, but the performances in the sections here sound great. If it was, say, €10 on Steam I'd probably take a punt on it right now, but at €18 I think I'll work through my backlog of other purchases first then see what the price is when I next remember this game.

Well no offence but thats the standard comment when anyone thinks a adventuregame is simply to hard for their taste so that statement carries no weight.

Being a standard comment doesn't make it invalid. If I have to randomly combine objects to solve something and there still is no discernible logic to that solution I consider it a bad puzzle. It is still a good game but to me it doesn't compare to harder classics.

Yeh ofc it doesnt have ot be invalid and im not saying it is, just that theres no way of knowing either way. Every discussion ever made on the internet about an adventure game contains a bunch of those comments and the word logic is very often watered out with nonsense.

Hah, I wondered if this would turn up on GB when I noticed the (years late) Steam release. I bought this way back when it had its initial German release. It is one of the few select Point & Click adventure games I actually really liked personally. Well, and Botanicula joined that list recently if that even counts strictly speaking.

The references are very on the nose but also very well done in my opinion. And they keep coming relentlessly. Also, yeah, the icons for the other two levers are just slightly off so you missed that. I generally recommend you exhaust every point of interest in the game until dialog repeats. When that happens (usually two sequences in at most) it means you need to apply an item before the point disappears. With that systematic approach I don't recall getting stuck ever.

Great to see the very amusing German voicework survived the transition to the international market fine for once. This one can definitely be a charmer for the right player.

That little guy has a Welsh accent. It seemed like Jeff was doing a bit of an exaggerated Irish country accent when he imitated him. Not saying I think non-Europeans should be able to differentiate, just clarifying.

This game when it originally came out,I heard from well respected people, was considered one of the greatest adventure games ever made. It does indeed look pretty awesome.

Its a good game, not great. Too many puzzles that have bad logic behind them.

But if they are recorded in a book, doesn't that mean that the unwritten tales are, in fact, written?
