You are wright, it is a difficult game but it is very nice
there are lots of puzzles, sometimes easy but also some very difficult one.
i made a walkthrough for it but that one is in Dutch, for one puzzle i cannot give a solution.
the puzzle is a game of mastermind and is every time different.

if you want some help let me know which puzzle and i will try to help you.

I certainly found it difficult, Billy the Kid 64, and although I got well past halfway through, I did give up and leave it for a second attempt in the future.

The puzzles were altogether mind boggling - and tired me out laugh

You're right. It is very difficult game but I found it enjoyable - especially when a light bulb
goes off and you've solved something during your journey through Quern - and that's what is, a journey.

I did find a very good video walk through on Youtube if you're interested.

You can find it here.

Another good YouTube person for walkthroughs is J.B. Lewis, who has a walkthrough for Quern here
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCdcBwzARVX1AJs9kmNaV4tagiYyU507Z

He also has walkthroughs for the RHEM games, though he doesn't have one for the SE version.

Hi everybody,

We have made a text walkthrough for Quern with lots of screenshots back in 2017, this one is in Dutch.

Next week I will translate that one to English, after I finished it I will send it to Louis and he will put it on his site: www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl.

I will make a reply when it is on the website.

I hope you have fun with it.

I backed this game on Kickstarter and downloaded it as soon as it came out but just tonight have started playing it. So far, so good. I played under 2 hours and solved a couple of puzzles. Moving right along. lol I didn't have my eyes open at first and did consult a walkthrough on the very first lock puzzle because I thought I might be doing something wrong. Had I been paying better attention, I would have seen the problem and figured it out but I'll give myself that one as part of the "learning curve". I do hope it doesn't get too hard though later in the game.

I really liked this game but had to shelve it for a future re-play (to maintain my sanity) even though I was probably three quarters of the way through.

The constantly very difficult puzzles were wearing me out !! slapforehead

I played for 2 hours tonight and didn't accomplish much of anything. There's already a puzzle I can't figure out.

Quern is definitely the best game I have played this year, and even compares reasonably with my all-time favourite game, Riven (to which it has more than a passing resemblance!) I found most of the puzzles satsfyingly logical, though I used a walkthrough on one or two occasions to point me in the right direction. The game has some very useful built-in help: a map that grows as new areas are opened to you, an ability to make sketches (stylised screenshots) whenever you want, and a hint function in the Inventory which I found very useful.

It is also an amazingly long game. When I first looked at the walkthrough on YouTube, I thought I was about halfway through the game, and found that I was only part way through the first of five videos! As you open up new areas you find amazing new things to play with.

If you want a game that recaptures the atmosphere of Myst and Riven, but with a fully 3D environments, then Quern is a must play game!

I like the game a lot so far. After posting above about being stuck, I managed to figure that puzzle out the next day and made a lot of progress but then became hopelessly stuck again. There was one thing I was trying to do but I guess I didn't try hard enough. I used the walkthrough just enough to see that I need to continue on with the thing I was trying. I didn't look at the solution and haven't yet gone back in the game to see if I can figure it out. As long as I am "exploring" and getting someplace I am fine, but when I get stuck and start wandering around to see if/what I missed, then I start getting motion sick. frown

I think I am only about a third of the way through the game.

Quern is a very good game, I played it a couple of times and Louis and I made a text walkthrough for this game.
Most puzzles I could figure out but sometimes I needed a little help from a walkthrough.

We explain all the puzzles exept 1, that is a game of master mind and that is different in each game.
In march I played it again and I have translated the walkthrough to English, you can find it on the website of Louis.

Lots of fun playing Quern,

I was really, really, loving this game until tonight. (I still love it but am just upset with it at the moment.) There is a puzzle involving a projector that I worked on for a couple of days and finally consulted a walkthrough for help. I was not doing something right but now that I have, the result that was supposed to happen, didn't. duh Anyway, it's making me ill so I had to get out for now. I think I'll take a look at Louis and Lion's walkthrough when I am feeling better enough to go back in.

Edit: OMG! I finally figured it out, why the location and clue didn't make sense to me and why the result didn't happen. I was focused on the wrong target. Unfortunately, I am too sick to continue now! sick
