I agree with gems1979: Use the walkthrough to get started. Once you're done with the make-coffee-task, you get your 1st real task and it gets much clearer. It's a fantastic game. Not a HOG, I agree - more for fans of Drawn and the like, IMO.

Oh and don't pick every thing up, you don't need to: many items are used where they are, or the ways to get them are short*. They even come back when you used them - in case you need to retry a potion...

ETA: * Once I got that with the items, I just dropped them in the basement for later use.
And the walkthrough is at

Just jumping in here to say I bought the game and after the first couple of tasks (with the help of the walkthrough) I am settling down to it quite nicely. It does remind me of a game I played some years ago but can't remember which one. But really enjoying Green Moon.

This is definitely an adventure game and I really like it. It's a bit tricky to get started since it's a little unclear what to do until you find the recipe book in the basement (took me a minute to figure out I needed a lit match in the basement to see anything). Once you find the book the goals are very clear. And you'll realize you do not need to pick up everything you see. You just need certain items to obtain certain goals.

I'm downloading the trial now on the basis of this thread.
The game doesn't look like a standard hog from the screenprints that go with the description. After all, there are inventory slots but no object lists.

I agree, this is not a HOG but an adventure. It can be hard to begin with, took me the whole hour to make the coffee, felt like quitting but stuck in there, So it is a buy for me. Gotta work those brain cells somehow and I think this game will do that.

This game is more like an adventure game. I'm going to suggest that they update the category so people don't think it's an HOG or even an IHOG.

I haven't tried this demo yet, but I agree that having a choice is good. Some days I want to play, but just don't want to have to think that hard.

Vicalana.....you had more patience than I did. Three minutes and I was tired of this joke of a game.

I think this is the best 'casual' game I've tried. Took me all of the demo to even find the coffee beans, certainly not a game for the impatient. As has been said it does get easier once you have completed the first task but still finding it far from straightforward a couple of hours in and for me that is a good thing.

Just finished. I think it took around six hours (not completely sure as I played for two hours, stopped, then forgot to check the clock when I started again). I thoroughly enjoyed the game...start to finish. Once you get the hang of the first few tasks, the process becomes easier. However, the gathering of ingredients get more complicated, often including side tasks. I found it best to look at each item as I found it, but wait until a specific item was called for before putting it in inventory. Of course then you had to remember where you saw it! New locations appear throughout the process of the game, making for quite a large world. The tasks and mini games offer a lot of variety in game play. IMO it was well worth the $$.

I finished the trial - and completed nothing in my hour. I missed the critical item.
I think I'll buy this at my next credit.

This is neither HOG nor IHOG but a straight adventure.

I was lost until i read some of the reviews, i was picking up everything then ran out space but someone mentioned to read the walk-thru to get started. Once i read it for the first task - it become much easier - i made a mistake making the coffee - the book said you have to read and remember. I think this will be interesting game but i am still undecided on purchasing .

So does anyone know anything about this game and i mean anything? What am I looking for and what am I supposed to be doing. The game has me stump, It looks fun once I get started but I hesitate to buy it when I am still going from room to room with no clue as to what I am looking for and WHY.



Seems hodge-podge to me - not a clue and nothing really makes sense.

I love this game, made it to the 4th task in the demo. While I am not smart enough to ever make it through Mist, I am finding this a thinking persons game for me and can't wait to buy it. I recommend it!!

Sorry, but not my cup of tea and deleted the Demo

The beginning is for me too long in 'not knowing what you'll have
to do'; what the 'goal' is.

I'm sorry about it, as the intro looked promising.
