Sounds exciting, thanks, BrownEyedTigre smile

Is "itch.io" still a "Non-Steam" site ??
I'm sure I read somewhere that they might go down the Steam route ....

Itch.io is a developer portal only. The developers are in charge of the content they put on there, itch.io itself does not add any DRM or anything else to it.
They are not going the steam route, they are trying to get the itch.io app on Steam to help get the word out. I doubt that Steam will ever agree to that since they are rivals.

there are a few things, the game is based on the ground floor and the 1st floor of a house. you wander around
to find keys to unlock doors. once you find keys it goes into your inventory which is accessible by clicking the "I" key.
you then go back to the same parts of the house again with the keys and it unlocks the door automatically. You never get to use the item yourself. If you get the hotspot to look at the book you only get a text down the bottom of the screen and it tells you what was written on the page. the text box takes up the bottom of the screen and you can't get rid of it unless you keep holding the space key.
you are constantly looking in the same room until you find another item which unlocks another scene in the game.so you are always going over the same area after you find another item. the items are in stupid areas....eg
Click to reveal..
a battery inside a oven
....
the audio is only background music that's all. it's a old game that has been put onto unity but doesn't seem to have any other changes.
When the game finally starts to move on then it's the end of the game. Is it worth $6.00 no I don't think so.

The demo convinced me that I'm NOT going to buy it. Try the demo and see for yourself.

Agree with 'plumgas' only 98 minutes of play. I thought it wouldn't be long as it took seconds to download!! The demo link didn't work for me. lol wave

I can't think of three more different adventure games.

One puzzle adventure
One corny horror FMV
One late Sierra comedy adventure

Why did they describe it like that?
