I just bought this based on Flotsam's review although I usually like to wait much longer after release with any game so that bugs get patched before I--inevitably--encounter them, so I hope all goes well with Eyes of Ara.

I am not even a Myst fan.

What I am is a castle fan.

I'm playing the game now and so far I like it. I am still way near the beginning. One problem I am having though is reading the notes and books. I have to use a magnifier and it takes away from the atmosphere.

Hi Oldbroad
Sorry I didn't respond sooner - have been away.
I found that my mouse wheel would zoom in on documents - not all the way but it certainly helped.

Oh, thanks Flotsam. I'll try that.

Again, thank you for this information. There was one note in the kitchen garbage I was just not able to read before but was able to now that you shared this information about the mouse wheel.
