The only comment I have about this, is that I always marvel at the time flotsam spends playing the games. I spent 11 hours playing this!

I don't really have access to my words right now. lol
I was shaking when reading this, and so thankful when I finished.
Still shaking, but very very happy. joy

Thank you for the review, flotsam - and thank you too, Jenny.

And I know that this game will take me way longer than flotsam! wave

I do try and push things along when there is a review, so a more leisurely play through would probably be a couple of extra hours. Rebecca didn't get time to admire the surroundings, she just ploughed on!
This isn't a difficult game so she was able to maintain a furious pace, helped here and there by some hotspot reveals.
I failed to mention the map in the review. It helps you get around, and will flash when a new location is added.

Always bringing us good things Mikael (The Birdwatcher). Thank you for your 700+ hours. And looking forward to seeing you in Silent Footsteps, too.

I don't think I've ever heard of that one Mikael - but if it takes upwards of 700 hours maybe I don't WANT to know !! hamster hamster

Mikael's sense of humour can be very dry at times I've found, so I did a google search of The Birdwatcher. There's apparently a book, a movie, a song and a board game with that name, but not something that should take 700 hours, lol. So, either I missed it, he's having some sort of fun, or that's the name of the next game. I didn't ask, cause like I said, dry humour. If I do ask, he will know that I want to know and then I will get weird answers. So I'm writing my thoughts here instead, so that everyone can be confused with me. laugh

My take on the 700 hours is, that it took Mikael more than 700 hours to make his game, not play it. And its name or working title is The Birdwatcher. Let's see what Mikael says!

Ah, might as well write here as well. I added a link to a walkthrough on YouTube if someone needs it. =)

I googled it also out of curiosity but was thinking mysterious sense of humor.

Well, I reckon Mikael certainly won't be giving much away if it IS to do with his next release lol lol

[ I did some Googling too wink ]
