I don't think the White Witch is
Click to reveal..
the daughter of Agatha D-H.
The Emailaccout belongs to WhiteWicca1952, so we can assume, she was born in 1952. What corresponds with the pictures we see. In 1965 she must have been 13 years old and Agatha never mentioned a little daughter (or a daughter at all) in her diary.
In one Email the White Witch mentions Agatha D-H and shows great despite.

I read the messages the White Witch left at the cafe once more. You are right, she wants us/the journalist to help restore Baibins treasures. She even talks in an Emai to Mia that Baibin needs her treasures restored.
How could i not seen this before!

Never mind. It just loaded. Looking forward to playing it!



I purchased the new Barrow Hill game last week while it was on sale. I haven't used Steam in quite awhile and the game is taking forever to load and install. A box on my screen says "updating Steam" and this has been going on for about ten minutes. Is this normal since I haven't used Steam for awhile?

Thanks!

Yes, it is completely normal. Once you get past the updates, you should be good to go.

Thanks, Draclvr. Seagul, I do think there is a distinct possibility

Elsie is Harker's daughter. For all we know, Harker could have had three or four children all safely lodging with the vicar in St Awful or tucked away in boarding school and having a better time of it than they would have had with a globe trotting, glory seeking mom more concerned with the monetary worth of a find than its scientific or historical value. That said, I got a kick out of Harker's journal, loved the photos (Was that someone in drag as Harker?) and loved how much clout Harker clearly had with the Royal Society. She must have been something of a celebrity archaeologist, not at all the type to be bothered by leaving her children with the grandps for years on end. I quite liked Harker with her Bronze Age pelf around her neck and her nose in the air. "Kids, what kids? Oh, those. Yes, must remember to write after Christmas and see if their camel ever arrived from Cairo. Perhaps the Pony Club will refrain from fussing if Elsie has a nonregulation mount." If taxed about leaving Elsie to the care of others, Harker would have sniffed and said, "Winston's moral compass was his nanny. Pass the cucumber sandwiches, there's a dear."

I like this scenario. Perhaps you have the basis for a new game with the characters! So many possibilities...

I think the new Barrow Hill game is very good so far. It helps a great deal if you played the first one because everything will be familiar. I was actually hoping that there would be attacking stones in this game, but I haven't seen any so far. I think it's a good game to play around Halloween. blackkitty bat witch

Is this the game Wychwood Hollow? It looks similar to the future game of same name. They must have renamed it.

Ana already answered that question on the previous page of this thread.

And my answers are not an hypothesis. I confirm my responses with the developers unless I say that it is in my opinion.

Barrow Hill Path Path was a fab game just finished it and loved it. There several things I need a little help with and one was the order of the video clips (where there any clues on how Mag solved this one?) and placement of the grave things and how she figured out what to use?

Hi Marie,

Click to reveal..
5-8 was easy enough.
I deduced 2,3,4 were together.
It's the first one - burning of leaflet that I went through inserting in between 2-4 by trial and error.

As for the grave thing - that was straightforward.
You have the list of grave things inserted in Agatha's journal plus the rolled up drawing of the location of those 4. See the walkthrough for pics of both of them.

I truly liked Barrow Hill and because of that very good game, I wanted to play Bracken Tor, not The Dark Path. I will not waste good money on this one. I read the reviews and the four important ones got through to me. I am no longer in the mood. I hope Matt Clark makes a fool of me and has made a very good follow-up to Barrow Hill.

I LOVED The Dark Path and once it was fully patched, it was a great game.

I also enjoyed Dark Path. It is a very good sequel to Barrow Hill 1. I highly recommend this game.

I thought The Dark Path was excellent and a worthy sequel to Barrow Hill. I just finished yesterday and I'm sad it's over.

BubbaJake: The Dark Path is like an appetizer for Braken Tor. The events at Braken Tor are mentioned in the game and some persons who where there.
So i hope you change your mind and give it a try.
After having played The Dark Path i want to play Braken Tor even more.

Yes, I had seen that post, BrownEyedTigre, but an alternative seller doesn't always mean an alternative to Steam. I've been caught by that in the past - so I was trying to make sure laugh


Hi BrownEyedTigre smile

Just wondering if you will be posting at Gameboomers if and when a non-Steam version is made available ??

[I've been checking the Shadow Tor Shop but not seen anything yet.]

Cheers.

Couldn't wait for a non-STEAM version.:) At least the game turned out to be DRM-free in the STEAM sense of DRM-free. Maybe even DRM-free for real but I didn't try moving the game to another computer so not sure.

Highly recommended game btw!

I'm glad you said in the STEAM sense of DRM-free frazap because Steam releases are certainly not in the TRUE sense DRM free !! rolleyes

Depends on ones own definition of DRM-free I guess. Some games are truly DRM-free once installed via the STEAM client. That is, the folder containing the installed game may be transfered to another hard drive and even another computer and still work completely independent of STEAM. That's good enough for me, but I guess only games that depend neither on the STEAM client or registry entries in Windows work this way.

But it is at least true that many games, especially adventure games, work without the client (with STEAM not even installed) once they are installed. But being forced to use the STEAM client to install the game in the first place is in those cases bad enough, I agree.
