When you mention it Emmyjayne nobody ha said anything about
banshees for a while. I thought we were correct about a banshee in the
game .
Maybe that was wrong.
I was thinking about some evil Banshee that would cast a curse and if
can't undo the curse you will

I've looked at the video several times again this evening. The emotions I'm sensing from the student in the caramel-coloured corduroy jacket when he is looking back and forth and then digging the snow are terror and dread (not evil or madness). Does anyone else get that feeling when they watch the video?

I don't think it was wrong - picman's clue were too specific: the four "O's" (the O'Gradys, the O'Neills, the O'Briens, the O'Connors), and the Kavanaghs - Patricia L's 1980's manuscript - those all point directly to banshees in the literature. But there's nothing obvious in the video or screenshots that ties into a banshee.

So - I've been meaning to ask this - do you guys think the titles picman gave the screenshots are actually clues? Or just titles? For example, the screenshot of the room with the fireplace - he labeled that "Empty?" So is that a new clue - like "Is this room really empty?" or does it just mean something like "the room is now empty with remnants of the students - so what happened?"

Maybe I'm just hoping we have more clues to solve...

Yes. And when he is digging there is no shadow to his right, but when he looks up there is a shadow looming over him.

Emmyjayne, I agree with you. I believe the screenshot titles are hints. This has been my first MCF pre-release hunt, but from all I've seen of Picman so far, he chooses his word far too carefully to have missed this opportunity to throw a few more clues our way.

I know! Thanksgiving is at my house this year with lots of people. I will probably have to play it the next night. Think of me as you play. My heart is breaking.

I have also been unclear as to how the banshee will play into all this. Maybe the 4 O's, not having found a way to kill her, had found a way to lock her away behind a "gate".

I was looking at the Diary screenshot
It says something about there is evidence the missing students had set
up camp in the room and they had abandoned their car.
Also something about setting up a fireplace because of the blizzard.

It also mentions the relic and what could be the meaning with it.

My guess is we are there to look for the missing students and we
stumble upon something" dark "

This little fishy got an early present!!

This evening I got an email to Beta test Dire Grove!!!!
I have played it 3 times!!

The first time through it took me over 2 hours - I got stuck on a puzzle and wasn't going to skip anything or use a hint which i didn't. It was nice because it wasn't a timed beta but it let you go to a certain point in the game no matter how long it took.

It will be worth the wait!

And I am not going to give anything away!

Yay!!! Thank you Picman! I found the MCF games and Big Fish earlier this year and have been hooked ever since! This is the first time I have followed a pre-release and all I can say is WOW! I thought I was ok at the games, but you folks are soooo much better....Thank you for all the wonderful clues and hints! Keep up the awesome work!

MCF Dire Grove reminds me of the Blair Witch Project. I love all MCF games and like most of you, can't wait. So more than likely it will be released before or after Thanksgiving. Sort of like, Black Friday...lol I know that Big Fish and thousands of other companies are looking for that final nbr which is profit. I'm sure MCF Dire Grove will be a smash hit.

So, everyone just be patient alittle longer because honestly, all this speculation and little hints is getting kinda boring.

Just either release it or let us know when to expect it already. Other HOG sites usually let their customers know when a game is going to be released. I don't understand why the hush hush. I don't mean to step on anyone's feelings here but BIG FISH needs to remember they are the #1 game site because of loyal customers as myself and many of you posting.

I'm a little tadpole in this big pond and in today's recession BIG FISH GAMES needs to show some loyalty to it's customers. JUST GIVE US THE RELEASE DATE.
