After a bit of a marathon on it I've just finished - wow! what a great game!
If you have a chance to pick this up at a bargain price it is well worth trying even if you can't get on with keyboard controls. I'm not a great lover of them either but once you've got used to them I didn't find it spoilt playing the game at all - sierramindy, there is no hurry in this game - you can play along & practise the keyboard at your own pace (I found it very relaxing) & there are only 2 or 3 places where you have to be organised & prompt with your actions! I did play through most of the game though with my hand on the mouse without realising what I was doing!
- I ended up having to hide it!!
thracia & looney4labs - I can see some developers may want to use keyboard control for a game to move more fluidly/naturally along - I really couldn't see any advantage in this game as it would have worked just as well with a point & click interface.
Butcher, I didn't come across any dead ends but thanks for the warning anyway!
