Call me crazy but I just started playing this game and something is driving me nuts! The characters are beautifully rendered and the environment is lovely but nobody's mouth moves. This has become a major distraction in the game, I find myself looking away in every conversation. This is a Sokal game, newer than the Syberias, how could this be? Thanks guys, just had to vent.

This is how they avoid having to re-lip-sync for all the different language versions -- they have no lip sync at all.

I have not played this game but this does not sound like it would be much fun if it is that distracting. sad


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

I don't know which version you have Miranda. In the version I have the characters do move their mouths! think

shows a conversation between two characters.
There is mouth movement, but it's minimal.
They seem to be talking through their teeth.

Thank you Jenny for the link, I watched it and I did detect a very slight movement of the upper lip of the secondary character. I'm not that far along in the game so I guess I have that to look forward to. And Bernard, what were you drinking when you played the game?
