Has anybody else tried this? I finished it today, and have mixed feelings about it. The writing, the setting, and the voice acting were all top-notch. I do have some reservations about the gameplay though. The game was very easy, which I usually don't mind. I personally like easy games, and I think it's good that some games are easy and some are terribly difficult. But my gripe here was that the main character’s "inner voice" was telling you what to do (or at least giving a very obvious hint) if you lingered around too long without doing the ”right” thing. This behaviour (which I remember from some of the Cryo games) is just stressing and totally unnecessary. It could easily have been implemented as an optional hint system instead, for which it would have worked perfectly.

Sorry, still on my wishlist waiting for a much better price. One of the Steam reviews mentioned hitting the "q" key to get hints. How long is "too long" to linger? I don't like when a game nudges me or tells me what to do while I'm still looking around and trying to figure things out.

Yes, ”Q” triggered Sophie’s (the main character’s) ”thoughts”. In some instances these were general comments about things we already knew about, which is fine, and has its place in almost all adventure games. Sometimes they were downright hints, telling the player what to do next. This is also totally fine of course, but it should have been explained in the game’s introductory tutorial that it actually is a hint system (well, sometimes it is). But regardless of that, those hints shouldn’t pop up spontaneously in any way whatsoever, which they, as I mention above, they did. Compare with how many games emphasize that you should only use their help systems if you’re REALLY stuck.

To answer your question, Oldbroad, I'm not exactly sure what triggered the spontaneous hints. I don’t think it was a timer, but rather doing specific things (that weren't the right thing), or going in the wrong direction.

Having said this, I certainly don’t want to bash the game, and the spontaneous hints didn't appear so many times when I played the game. It is, in many aspects, a unique game, and well worth buying. I think that your decision to wait for a price drop is a wise one though.
