I have completed 'Miazma', and I have to say I like it a lot smile

It is not as great as 'Youmurjak's Ring' though, much shorter and claustrophobic, as we spend most our time in Atomki (the Institute of nuclear physics). And if some players do not like too many dialogues (I do smile ) - they can find it boring to outlive the first day and to proceed to the second one where there are much more puzzles and dynamics.

Thanks for that info Iurii. Sometimes too much dialogue bothers me.

Thank you, Iurii smile

Miazma has a rich story and dialogs are needed to unfold it. Many people like dialogs and many don't. Hard to please both smile

In Miazma, the designers addressed this through various techniques/options.

First of all, likeable characters. Some of them really amusing.

Second, all dialogs, movies and cutscenes can be skipped with a click. (Puzzles too). This means you can click through any part (like the first day) quite quickly. I you do so, you'll miss some of the story and clues that will be needed later in the game, but...:

Dialogs are recorded in a journal so you can look up everything even if skipped!

I try to never use skip buttons as I don't want to miss anything, even long dialogs, but it is nice to know they are available.
Thanks Pilaus!

Iurii, Bravo for finishing this game. I'm stuck at one point. (Please read my post on "Adventure Game Hints"-"Miazma Dead End"). Any help you can provide to me would be greatly appreciated.

So they borrowed from MMORPGs which allow skipping cut scenes so people repeating repeatable content don't have to watch it every time. I used to be the one who hadn't done it before in SWTOR and would watch the cutscenes. Some people handle having to wait for the newbie better than others.

Skipping cut scenes was allowed in adventure games as far back as the 1990's. Just depended on the game. It's certainly not unique to MMORPG's.
