Thanks Ana.
This sounds interesting and weird at the same time.
At least spot will be in it. I liked spot.

Thanks for the information, Ana. thumbsup Hmm, no inventory? Not sure about that one. I'm still picking up the game anyway, though, as I really want to see where they're going with the story. Also, more Spot is always a good thing. smile

That's the saddest thing I heard about an adventure game in a very long time. Replacing inventory puzzles with MECHANICAL puzzles is not interesting, it's disgusting. My guess is Daedalic thinks that will attract more players than their classic point and click games?

I hope the game sells very poorly. That will steer Daedalic back to their senses. Otherwise that's the only garbage we'll get from them.

It wouldn't surprise me if the lack of inventory-based puzzles was related to the switch to a 3D engine.

To me, "mechanical puzzles" means something like the puzzles in Myst, Riven, Exile, Schizm, etc. But I suspect "mechanical puzzles" may mean something else in this game -- something that was doable with their new game engine.

I don't believe there are many gamers that think the puzzles in Myst and Riven were more "instinctive" than the puzzles in inventory-based games. It's true that some inventory-based puzzles could be highly illogical, and solvable only by "try everything on everything." But not all inventory-based puzzles are that way, and the illogicality has nothing to do with being inventory-based. You can certainly have illogical mechanical puzzles.

I'll probably try the game if it comes to GOG or DotEMU or ShinyLoot. But I don't have much hope that the puzzles will be anything like the ones in Myst, Riven, Exile, Schizm, Obsidian, or other noteworthy games that had mechanical puzzles. I'm afraid they'll be casualized instead -- or made more like the puzzles in action/adventures and be timed or dexterity-related.

I really hope they don't add timed/dexterity-related mechanics! I'd be okay with a more casual approach - though not crazy about it - as long as the story is good. I really don't see why they feel the need to do away with inventory entirely, however. Even TellTale's latest games, as simple as they are gameplay-wise, still use inventory.

I do hope they keep the mechanic of changing Spot into different forms. That was one of my favorite aspects of the first game. smile

Wow it just gets worse and worse... 3D?? Why? Daedalic were the reincarnation of the 1990s giants, I guess it was too good to last. Really bad news.

I actually think the 3D looks really nice in this game. If you check it out in motion, you may be pleasantly surprised. smile Like most Daedalic games, this is still one of the more beautiful adventure games I've seen. And I wouldn't be surprised if they continued to make full 2D games as well. I would love another Dark Eye or Edna and Harvey game. grin
