I haven't had any problems with the cursor, or the inventory. I finished the demo and I believe I am half-way finished with the game. Concerned that it's not very long. I enjoyed the game a lot, different and interesting. Anyone have any idea about the length?

Awesome game! The game is quite long and good. This is my third purchase here after Drawn 1, and Drawn 2.

I didn't use the custom cursor, but I've had the same problems with using inventory items which made the game very sluggish. Loved the sense of fun in it! But won't be buying because of the cursor. Its slowness made the game tedious. Hope others enjoy it!

Just finished the demo and bought it. Seems a little easy at first but overall like the game. Haven't noticed a problem with the cursor. I like that it has the option to adjust the brightness level although I didn't use it much since I like them dark and eerie. Well I'm off to check the walkthrough to see how many chapters this game has. I suggest trying it out. Hope you like.

Liked the demo, so I'm purchasing. Even if it's a dark-flavored game, it still has a bit of a sense of humor- like the comment on the fish, what pops up on the computer once you enter the password, some mild poking-fun at adventure game logic in the diary-type dealie... Ahh well, back to playing.

No music? Mine has music.
Cursor problems? I have no problems with my cursor at all - normal or custom.
Jerky cursor? Mine is just fine.
Can't change 'player' name? I was able to add my name with no trouble at all.
Can't add items to inventory? I added and removed items just as easily with this game as with the other games I've played.

I actually liked the game and was rather surprised the demo hour passed so quickly. I checked the blog and was still on the cemetery chapter, meaning there are 4 more, so this is a good 3 hour game, maybe more, which makes it worth buying in my opinion.

The puzzles in the game are interesting and somewhat different than the ones I am used to, so that make it fun. The graphics are great! I can't wait until I get to the asylum to see what it looks like! On a scale of 1-5 I give this one a 3 1/2 because nothing compares to MCF games, lol!

Gotta agree w/Robilyn--big-time cursor problem. I've switched between custom and system, and there's still a twitchy (and sometimes even lack of) movement, especially when trying to access inventory. Too bad; got more than enough specs for the game and all drivers are up-to-date. Oh well.

At first I didn't like the game because I couldn't hear any music. I thought a game like this needs music. Makes it even better. I left the game to do a couple of things and went back in. I faintly heard music so I turned the music volume in the Options menu all the way and my speakers volume up and now I can hear music. It might be worth 5 bucks! lol. I haven't had any problems with the cursor.

I think it's needs a little bit more atmosphere. I thought it would be a creepy game, which I like, but to me there isn't enough creepiness. It is a relaxing game.

Can some one please tell us if there is a skip button for puzzles? If so I might add it to my sale list as I'm yearning for a good dark game!

Oops.. I see the skip button in the screen caps now! Guess I'll be spending another 5 bucks lol and I was gonna be sooo good! .... nope that sale got me again!

didn't see this problem - I click on play - it minimizes and I have to click on it to go to next screen. This happens after each mouse click in the game -entering my name, clicking on play,etc. also only had 1/2 screen - the rest was a white page. Going to bed now but in the morning, I will try deleting it and re-downloading to see if that helps. I will post the results but if that doesn't cure it - no sale here for sure.

Thanks prpldva for the W/t! I already needed it for the 5th gear... tsk, and I had been so proud how I handled the tree!

A definite buy for me - fortunately, no technical or cursor problems whatsoever (playing w/ HW cursor on Windows XP; didn't test game cursor, but looked fine at the start). I definitely like the brightness adjustment and that there's no random-clicking penalty.

And I want to know how the story continues (and I do think from some remarks of our heroine about Quinn, that she could need some help, lol!). Also, the game gives me the feeling of being sooo clever when I overcome the obstacles 'they' put in my way - open gate, make light, open safe - which probably means the real experienced adventurers might find it too easy, but I like it!

I've just finished the game and loved it. Only wish it didn't end so soon! Played for 3 hours and what with jumping up and down to make dinner I reckon it would have been about a 2 and half hour game time for me.
I loved the graphics I and thought it was a intelligently made game. Hint system is good and I like getting tips on the puzzles rather than just having a skip option. The story line is within the game in journals and papers you come across as you progress.
All in all a 10 out of10

I'm not purchasing this one. Besides the technical issues involved, I found the game to be too simple. The graphics are poor, not the brightness but the actual drawing of the graphics themselves.

I found the game to be uninteresting and boring. I'm sure some will like it, if they can get past jittery cursors and slow gameplay. You click on something and have a lag time before anything happens.

For me, this game is truly a "nightmare" and it's being deleted now.

I bought the game after 1/2hr of play time. Some people may not like it because it is may be a little to easy to play. I had no problems with the custom cursor or downloading. Back to playing. I did run into one problem I thougt that after I solved the lottary ticket pieces it would save the #'s in my journal and it did not. I do need the #'s to get into the safe. I just found the #'s on the camera.
