It's great to hear so many people have enjoyed this game; I'm hoping this thread will also encourage some people new to the game to give it a go!
Shivers 1 (the one I am referring to) takes place in a very interesting (and colorful!!) museum. The second one is the one that takes place in the desert town and involves the bahos/symbols.
You know what else I liked about Shivers? The fact that the manual actually EXPLAINS the objective of quite a few of the puzzles. Maybe I'm just a little dimwitted, but there are times with puzzles that I don't understand what I am supposed to be doing (okay, MANY times!)
You might think this would have spoiled the puzzle or made it a lot easier, but I didn't find that to be the case.
What really amazed me last night is how polished this game seems. Sometimes a fond recollection of an older game, after having played so many newer ones, gets tarnished after giving it another try years later. That is definitely not the case with this one. I love the narrator's voice and the commentary during the exhibits, too, as well as the video clips.
This game just showed so much....creativity!
Syd, I like the sound of that graph paper!
And Nickie, I don't generally enjoy that many first-person puzzlers either, but this one was definitely different.
I really wouldn't have mentioned this game here if it were one of those that's impossible to find now, but happily that is not the case, and you don't have to give up food for the month to pay for it, either.
