I'd like to join that club too, I always wonder if something will get me while I'm looking through the junk pile!

On a different note please:

1) Is this a straight H0G

2) Is it ANY better than the Lost Ship! I didn't play Margrave Manor, but Margrave 2: The Lost Ship just sent me straight to hell! Most boring game (next to Haunted Hotel) that I ever played.

I didn't like the two earlier Margrave Manors but this one is completely different - a really nice game with lots to do in it and excellent graphics. I have been playing for over an hour and have only just finished the first chapter - I believe that there are 5. The Strategy Guide is also excellent. A very fun game - not too dark but sufficiently creepy. It seems really very different to anything else out there at the moment - do give it a try if you didn't like the earlier Margrave Manors as I think you may enjoy it.

Happy day to you Kel. Casualgran and Goofyduck both seem to say it is an IH0G and I would agree with that.

Yes, IMHO it is a lot better than The Lost Ship.

Hey Kelvarda--NO comparison to the first two losers--especially different (and WAY much better in every aspect) than the 2nd no-brainer, The Lost Ship.

Anyways, this looks like a well-done IHOG/Adventure, with two kinds of inventory, good voice acting (inVENTory doesn't bother me--I like Brit English!), and character interaction. Think you'll get hooked just on the Intro! I bought it after minimal demo time--no looking back!

Game on!

I don't live in England, but I watch a lot of British movies and BritComs...does that count?

I pronounce the word INventory (don't know how to do accent marks). I've never heard it pronounced any other way.

I have been trying to say it in my head and I think I say "inventree" with no accent on anything but I have said it to myself so many times that it now sounds like a silly word altogether! Thanks jennsmom for the reply

What do you mean with "laggy"?

I like this game. I am now in chapter 2 and I played chapter 1 in 2 hours. No skip puzzles. So, I think it's a good lenght.

Goodness, played the whole hour and didn't even notice the time passing. Not much on music, and glad you can skip those dream card things so I bought it and will have a great time playing it!


Yes it is a sequel I looked up on another site

I think it speaks volumes for the quality of this game that the major flaw seems to be the pronunciation of one word--a new release just a few days ago was full of grammar and spelling snafus, but didn't warrant the same attention. Maybe developers should stick to subtitles and dialogue boxes--then we can pronounce as we see fit. This appears to be a very good game--I think I can get over the "inventory" hurdle! ( I love the above comments, though! LOL!)

for me also!after the minigame on the bird house(trying to eat bugs!berk!!!) in chapter 3,the game slows very much and i had to go in options to use ordinary cursor!and i had to skip the bird house puzzle for i can't click fast enough ;the door puzzle doesn't work anymore in chapter 5,the moon riddle never works,even after solving the good items in good spots!
it is a very strange game with curious atmosphere,good graphics,good voice acting,but the music made me crazy and i turned it off!

LOL.

I am English (from the south) & pronounce it Inven TORY. I know a lot of people on TV call it inventry as in infantry, but it is not, it is inven TORY LOL.

I also know what a port cullis is because we had to study medi evil history in school, so I suppose if your country doesn't have a medi evil history, ancient castles etc you wouldn't know (hehehe, just playing)

I have not got to the extrordinary word yet, but it is pronounced ex troard inary.

We also have tomAREtos, pot ate o's & "al you minimum"

Mind you the Geordies & Glaswegions have a whole new language of their own LOL.

ETA. The Welsh, esp the South Welsh, talk in a very slow sing song voive & elongate the vowels, so chaple ( chap pull) is pronounced chaaaaaaaaaaa pull)

The first Margrave was horrible, the second one a little better than the first and now the third is a lot better than the second. However, with that said....it doesn't justify the additional money that comes with a "CE". I'm going to wait and purchase with one of my 3 punchcard coupons when it becomes a "SE".

I am finally becoming picky in my old age as to which CE's I will be purchasing and this isn't going to be one of them. Usually I try to be positive about games but this one just isn't worthy of being a CE.
