I'm replaying this game now as well. Thorsgoats and I love to quote these lines - "I think I will go now." "I'll return to my work." Samuel and Bates say these lines so many times, they seem to take up half of the game. lol

Really fantastic game, of course. I haven't gotten to the slider puzzle yet, but as I know the trick to solving it, I've never needed a saved game for it. devil I do, however, keep saved games for two of the very long waits after a couple of characters tell Samuel to come back later. I remember the second one taking about 40-45 minutes, with nothing to do in the meantime but run around to all the areas several times and re-read some of the family history just to pass the time. crazy

I've just gotten to the part where (very mild spoilers for the entire trilogy)
Click to reveal..
Samuel visits Murray in the pawn shop. Murray is a very different character here than he is in Black Mirrors 2 and 3.
grin

The original is still definitely my favorite, though I loved the sequels as well. I'm still avoiding the newest game, as I'm hoping a patch to fix the controls will be released at some point. If not, I'll power through it one of these days. smile

Hi fellow Boomers,
i'm also re-playing BM1, but this time it's the GOG version, even though I still have my old Boxed version. Purchasing the game from GOG cost me $9.99.I had missed the $4.99 sale, but no big deal. Got past the "Torn Photo"
puzzle by using the savegame. I understand that some other puzzles are more difficult than the torn photo. Haven't gotten to these yet, and I'm hoping there will be more savegames available for the game. Crossing my fingers! lol

Having completed and very much enjoyed BM1, I've now started BM2 smile

A much slower moving beginning to this one and the setting is nowhere near as atmospheric but I expect it will fire up soon yes

Got to !! It IS a Blck Mirror after all !! lol

Mad, I think the original game was the most atmospheric by far, which is a big part of why it's my favorite of the trilogy. The sequels are still pretty fantastic as well, however. smile

Mostly I am Mad - except when I had to wander around doing nothing but enjoy the rain while I waited for a key to be made and then for my photos to be developed. Not as long for the photos thankfully since that was almost immediately after the key. smile

I know game 2 started out more slowly and some people didn't like it, but I seem to remember that I did.

Yes. I liked them ALL - but the first the most smile

However, that "waiting for time to pass" in the first I originally found confusing. Thought I'd missed some vital clue or something (for ages) that would move me on !! shocked

Got to love those older ideas, eh ?? lol

There are two especially bad waits in the original - one with Richard and one later with the priest. That second one took about 40-45 minutes for me. crazy Now, I keep saved games for both of those waits, so I don't have to worry about them again. grin

I suppose they thought the waits would add "realism," but I think there are much better ways to accomplish this. Plus, I think this is one of those instances where the player would want things to be less realistic. lol

Hi Boomers.
I just found a copy of BM2 on my games shelf. Installed it and it's running perfectly on my WIN 10 PC (no serial number needed).
will start it after I finish BM1, and I WILL refer to Louis Koot's amazing walkthrough. HAPPY GAMING!

"Slider" grin

Is that because you just came across it - or because you just conquered it, oldbroad evil

Does that mean I have a "slider puzzle' to deal with in BM2? LOL
When I mentioned Louis's walkthroughs as "Amazing", that includes MAG'S walkthroughs as well. She helped us out for many years, and I know we all appreciate her to this day.
