Spoiler alert- question on last puzzle in bonus section

This is going to sound odd but the last puzzle is irritating me. I get that bone points to a dog, the fish points to Pisces, but what's the connection between 20.00 and VIII?

We wondered the same thing when finishing this puzzle. ^^
The only connection that comes to my mind now is a clock. When it is 20:00 o'clock the small hand points to the VIII (8 in the evening).

EDIT: Grammar, har, har!

I am here for the same reason, especially since the sideways 69 is the sign of Cancer which is a crab and not a fish.

I had to use the strategy guide for this one.

Thanks ScaniX, I can buy that the 20.00 can refer to 8 o'clock even
tho I didn't think of it.

But, the fish sign is just plain wrong. As kgrnpc stated, the
Strategy Guide solution shows Cancer, not Pisces.

Bummer.

I didn't understand the puzzle either but I managed to solve the last two signs by rotating the circle until it glowed. ^^ It seems like the devs expect us to know astrology. The eight is logical now when I now the solution but I have to agree that the cancer sign should be wrong.

I was disappointed in the CE and should have waited for the SE and this last puzzle was what really convinced me I made a mistake. It was very annoying, and incorrect.

i have to agree with all the complaints on this one...

so, am i to understand that the venetians of the sixteenth century didn't know what symbols represented the astrological signs?? am i also to believe that they were on 24-hr time??

the whole thing was absolutely ridiculous!!!

and, all in all, i have to say that it completely ruined that part of the game... if i had one thing to say to potential buyers, it would be: WAIT for the SE! that's right... for the extra 34 minutes [including the frustration of that last puzzle] and the most bow-tied, simplistic ending of all time [second only to black screen followed by "the end"]... not worth it!

and that's my
