Thanks, Ana. wave

I thoroughly enjoyed the first game, Otherworld: Spring of Shadows, and am looking forward to playing this game. smile

Definitely a buy for me. There seems to be quite a bit to do, not a lot of HOS, a lot of interaction and the voice overs are great. The first chapter took up most of the trial time. There are a lot of chapters. There's also an interactive map, that will take you to places already visited and it let's you know if you still have things to do in certain places.

Hi, Ana!

I downloaded and played the demo, and this is a definite buy for me. The first game was wonderful, and it took me over 9 hours to complete (7+ hours for the main game and 2+ hours for the bonus game).

I'm hoping BFG has another half-price sale on game credits because I'm slowly going bankrupt grin !

Susie07, on your recommendation I am now playing the first game in this series - Never played it before and didnt realise I had bought it - I am really enjoying it. I hope the new game is just as good.

Hi, Ana and Boobie!

I've already got a few games I haven't played yet, but this one is another winner. I may hold off buying it for a couple of days to see if BFG has any sales and, by then, it will be the 7th of the month and I can use a Game Club Credit. I don't have much time to play either, but since when has that ever stopped me grin !

Boobie, I'm glad you discovered that you hadn't yet played the first game because you're in for a real treat. Just when I thought I was nearing the end, there was still lots more to do but, unlike some other games that are longer than most, I was never bored with this one, nor was I wishing it would end. Enjoy!

I just replayed the first Otherworld game and enjoyed it as much as I did the first time around. It's going to be wonderful to be able to play the second one. wave

Re: Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition - New IHOG on BigFish - 02/04/13 04:53 PM

Hi, Marian!

I replayed the first "Otherworld" game a few months ago when there wasn't anything new that I was interested in and also enjoyed it as much the second time.

I'm going to try holding off buying "Omens of Summer" to see if BFG has another sale, but I'm not liking my chances grin ! I just know the minute I buy it, the next day the banner will read "Half Price Sale On All Games" lol !

I will hold that thought, Ana. smile

Re: Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition - New IHOG on BigFish - 02/04/13 06:36 PM

Hi, Ana!~

Valentine's is 10 days away, and I'll be lucky if I can hold out until the 7th when I get my 2nd Club Game Credit grin !

lol I'm only guessing at a sale, but it seems like a good occasion to have one. I know it seems light years away if you really want the game.
Posted by: Susie07

Re: Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition - New IHOG on BigFish - 02/04/13 08:26 PM

Hi, Ana!

I really want the game lol ! I enjoyed the first one so much and the demo of "Omens of Summer" was just as good.

Edited to add that I'm glad I waited because I can pick up this one and "Maestro:" Music From The Void" today for 20% off happydance .

Hi, smitty!

I was holding out until tomorrow when I get my second Club Game Credit but, since I can never resist a sale, I picked it up a day early for 20% off. I also picked up "Maestro: Music From The Void".

Hi Susan,

I knew you couldn't hold out when I saw that sale pop up. rotfl This is just too good to wait.
I'm also thinking of grabbing Amaranthine Voyage: The Tree of Life CE.

Ana, Great minds think alike!!! rotfl Do you think BFG would have a snow day sale? winter

Too bad they are on the opposite coast. They could have a rainy day sale pretty much everyday. lol

Just finished the original Otherworld - what a good and long game with plenty of puzzles.

Has anyone finished Omen of Summer yet? If so, how does it compare to the original game? Is it a long game?
Posted by: Susie07

Re: Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition - New IHOG on BigFish - 02/07/13 08:45 AM

Hi, smitty and Boobie!

smitty, I have absolutely no willpower, so the minute I discovered all games were 20% off yesterday, I was there lol !

Boobie, I'm glad you enjoyed the original Otherworld because it was an excellent game. I've only played "Omens of Summer" for about 25 minutes, but it looks like another winner.

Yes, there is. You should be able to access it from the main menu. Did you try looking under "Extras?" I don't have the game in front of me, but bonus gameplay is usually located somewhere like that. wave

Waited for a sale and nabbed this game!! Woo hoo

Have just finished the first chapter and wondered if anyone knew about a list of where the fairies are located? Couldn't find one in the guide.

Just wanted to make sure I found all of them so I could get the achievement award.

Thanks for any help. wave

Re: Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition - New IHOG on BigFish - 02/23/13 08:47 PM

According to someone on the Big Fish forum, the strategy guide has shots of all the fairies. Go to the Table of Contents and choose Achievements, Collectibles; you have to click through all the pages until you are past the Achievements and the bonus puzzles. wave

thanks
