Finished with main game.

[Post New]by sartasia on Dec 1, 11 11:25 AM
Not as short as I had assumed after demoing. Took me about 3.5 hours. I took my time, only used 2 clues and needed no skips. I even found all the morphs though the last one took me a while to find. What a lovely game. A little on the easy side but very enjoyable. Now I'm off to play the extra story. I'll update later.

Happy Gaming Fishies!!


Have now finished the extra play. Added an extra 20 minutes with a quick tale. Additional FROGs and some minis continuing into this story. The opening scene was not what I would have expected and gave me a giggle but the tale ties in with the main story in the end.
Money well spent on a delightful game.
Thanks BF and Blue Tea!

I got into Chapter 3 during the hour demo, so figured the main game would be about 3-3.5 hours. Seeing that the bonus game was 14 pages, I thought it might take over an hour, but you finished it in 20 minutes? That's disappointing.

Was it a preview to the next Dark Parables game, as the other bonus games in earlier Blue Tea games were?

I never go by the time it takes someone to finish a game. No one should. I mean, everyone plays at a different pace. A 3.5 hr game for one person, may end up being a 5 hr game for me. There's nothing wrong with someone stating how long it took them. But I wouldn't go by that one persons time alone. I'd wait to see a few more comments first, then kinda get a general play time average. Just saying.

I mentioned the time as far as the main vs the bonus to show the difference in size. I agree everyone plays at their own pace but I do get a ball park idea of the size of the program by people stating how long they played. I believe vingilot was commenting as we seem to be playing at comparable rates.

I really took my time in the demo since I knew I was going to buy it so I kinda poked around more than normal... . In a sense they did give a hint at the end of the extra tale of what may be coming. It was a great added extra with the challenge on the same level as the main but it was on the short side. There are extra new puzzles added in the bonus section along with the regular choices. Though the game all and all could have been longer I enjoyed it immensely as there was so much to do and it was such a joy to look at.

If it's not sparkling, you haven't done something that you need to do in order to trigger it.

You'll have to check the guide and see what you might have missed.
