Wow, the graphics look wonderful, more like an older full-format Adventure game than yet one more of the purple-fog HOA clones. I definitely will check it out! Thanks, Marian.

I stayed up all night finishing it.

In the last chapter there are puzzles that cannot be skipped. All previous puzzles could be.

Now need Adera 2.

Good to know, Guybrush. I don't know if there will be an Adera 2.

I'm playing this game and enjoying it. I've noticed on GB's reviews, several people said it was a short game. It has four episodes, when you are done with the first, press escape and see "episodes." Then "play" and you'll get the next one. I think it's a pretty long game.

Thanks, Laurette. That was what I thought. This release contains all the episodes, so it is certainly not short.

If no one has the answer for you, Laurette, there seem to be some walkthroughs on YouTube that might be of help.

That one had me because I didn't realize there were more stumps on the edge of the screen and I wasn't seeing them. And thats one with no skip option.

I hope you can get it figured out, Laurette.

Is anyone else playing "Adera" now? #1199619

I am enjoying this very cinematic game that feels a lot like one of the Adventure games from the 90's. Beautiful, painterly graphics and original ideas/execution. But I am struggling a bit with how it works. For example, it took a lot of experimenting to figure out how to navigate, in general. It took half an hour to realize I could turn around 180 degrees AND look up and down in some scenes (but not all).

Also, there are only graphic clues for some things (no text) and that can get you into trouble. There are "arrow" buttons for turning around or backtracking, but there also are "arrow" buttons in the mini-games ~ but these DON'T mean to backtrack; they mean to SKIP the puzzle. I got burned on that twice before learning the lesson.


So, I am wondering if there is anywhere to find some Rules of the Game to help me progress a bit more smoothly. I don't want to miss a thing! happydance

Finally, does anyone know if buying this "sequential" game means that I only bought the first Chapter and will have to purchase the additional chapters?

Reenie I merged your post with our Adera thread - maybe another player will be able to help you with specific questions. wave

My understanding is that the Big Fish version of Adera contains every episode, so you get the complete game.

There appear to be walkthroughs available including one on YouTube.

Thanks, Marian. I should have done a Search for the previous thread. Thanks for the info about the following "Chapters." And I will check out YouTube for more info.

I knew as soon as I posted my question, I would find my own answer.
I logged out of the game, went back in and the butterfly was in my inventory. Must have been a little burp in the program!
It's a really fun game. rah


Hi, wave2
Does anyone know where to find the missing butterfly for the one of the six statues in chapter 2?
"Properly place the missing items on six statues."

My inventory shows a butterfly shaded image but there is no butterfly there.
I've look on the web youtube, but can't seem to locate any info.

Thanks for the help,
