OMG, I give up. I wanted to like this game, the premise is looking good and the graphics and sound are decent.
But I keep going through the walkthrough and it’s clear I will never make it through on my own. The puzzles are maddening, convoluted and obtuse. Get that, put it here, oh wait, it won’t fit, look around find an object, go somewhere else, find a paper, back date it from yesterdays newspaper plus the number of days since Shirley took her last shower, put the objects name and calculated date into one of the computers, dig around, remember certain words, go to another computer, search on that, take that result, mix in your coffee, feed to it to a cat, oh wait, there’s no cat, where’s a cat? Forget the cat, it will find me in my dreams, so I have to find a sleeping potion. Oh, I can mix one up using instructions from the computer, but I need a code for that, which is on a piece of paper that won’t appear in a drawer until a do a jig on my head while making the sign of the devil with my left toes, but I won’t know that until I …where the crap am I? Every door looks the same, but if I wait in room #4 until my coffee cools, then a neon sign will turn on. I drip my cold coffee on the sign and get electrocuted, where I have that dream I was going to use the potion for, but surprise, I won’t need it.
I"m sure in the context of story a lot of makes sense but I do not want to work that hard at being a detective. I’ll just read the walkthrough and pretend it’s a good book. :?
