I've been watching this Let's Play and really enjoying it - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3AISiWybyWdjUT_EqNic4xtreYWi8QMe. Granted, it's definitely not on the level of the first two Syberias, but I'm having fun with the story, and I'm enjoying this guy's reactions to all the glitches and stair climbing issues. lol He seems to be enjoying the game in spite of this. He has also played through the first two games and has really enjoyed them both.

I won't be purchasing the game myself until the price comes down because I do think it's a bit too expensive for what it is. If it were on the level of Dreamfall Chapters, which unlike some posters here, I believe is an exceptional game and happens to be my new favorite(wink), I would have purchased it and played it already. From what I've seen, I consider it a very good game with some issues, while the first two were excellent. Hopefully by the time I'm ready to purchase it, the bugs will finally be ironed out.

Ana, that's fantastic news about A Vampyre Story! Hopefully, they'll be able to make it happen, and we'll finally see that cliffhanger resolved. woot Personally, I don't mind playing games with cliffhangers even if they are never resolved, as it's better than missing out on something I'd really enjoy. However, I do wish developers wouldn't use them unless they were pretty certain another installment would be made. The only cliffhangers I actually like are Dreamfall's (yes, I know I'm most likely alone in this, but I like the epic nature of the ending, even it it is tragic) and Gabriel Knight 3's, mostly because I don't consider it a cliffhanger, just a sad and appropriate ending after what the characters had gone through.

I was one of the suckers that bought the disc from Amazon. I don't think it is on the disc. I wondered if there was a game manual anywhere for the PC. It took me quite a while to figure out how to use the inventory, etc. If it is on the disc I can't find it.

There are 2 options in the, well, Options menu that cause the inventory to be used differently although not sure how.
The inventory really is atrocious.
All over the place.

Thanks, cazziejoe!

And, no, the game is not on the disc. All you got there was a disc with a Steam key.

Hi all,

Is there a game manual anywhere on the internet? Maybe at steam, heaven forbid?

Thank you,

Bill

Is there a particular question you are looking for an answer on Mr Bill? It is not a very good idea they used for the Inventory as it is very clumsy. I found that you can rotate through the items with the Mouse Wheel to center the one you want to use in the middle circle.

Hi Greyfuss,

I was looking for one that might help many of us, not just myself. Usually there is some kind of guide. All we get is a suggestion that we use a controller. I bought a Gravis Joystick many years ago. I'm looking for a connector from a 15 pin (two rows) to a USB. I didn't care for it then and probably won't now, but I'll give it a try on my next play. I see that new controllers run between maybe $50 to $80. Most in the upper range.
I had a major time last night trying to get the ice breaker working. Finally got it this morning. smile

Take care,

Bill

Are you looking at joysticks or gamepads?
You can get a new USB gamepad for around $20.
https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=gamepad

Ideally you'd try one out in a local shop to make sure it fit your hands.

Gameport-to-USB adapters aren't as cheap as you'd expect.
According to user reviews, the Rockfire adapter will work with a Gravis Analog Pro joystick, but the Rockfire costs about the same as a new gamepad.
https://www.amazon.com/game-Adapter-Rockfire-RM-203-gameport/dp/B004HAX7OU/qid=1494800898

Since you don't even like your old Gravis Joystick, there's not much advantage to getting the adapter over a new USB gamepad.

Thank you Jenny,

I'm an avid Point & Click old man who is probably too stubborn to change, but I'll give it a go. I should have kept to the topic instead of adding other stuff. Is there a game manual for the game? I'll keep looking and if anyone comes across one, let us know.

Thank you,

Bill

Check and see if Steam installed a manual (or readme) in the game folder.
Is there anything like a manual accessible through the game menu?
Any options for key mappings that would tell you the defaults?

There may not be any official manual.
There are some tips at the beginning of this FAQ

Hello all Gameboomers.

I was eagerly awaiting the 3rd Syberia game, replayed the first two to get the story again. Then I read the reviews. I normally don't read reviews and have liked many games that were panned by reviewers. I'm just wondering. I'm thinking of waiting till the price drops.

One thing I keeping seeing on reviews is that the game
Click to reveal..
has a cliffhanger ending

Adam, I combined your question with this official Syberia thread because everything you need to know is in here. You can make your own decision after reading this thread.
