group play for Pahelika: Secret Legends started Aug 18th, all welcome

[Post New]by Catfish_girl on Aug 18, 12 12:25 AM
Welcome all to the Pahelika: Secret Legends group play.
We welcome all players, it doesn’t matter how much experience you have, cause we all help each other out.

Adventure games can be challenging and confusing, it helps to talk about the game and ask questions to other players. And there are absolutely no silly or stupid questions, we all had to learn and are still learning .

In adventure games it is important to explore as much as possible, take notes, and try to combine things you’ve picked up. Mostly anything that can be picked up serves a purpose at some point .

I can’t go into the exact game specifics, cause I can’t access the game right now myself, so I couldn’t explore beforehand.

I do believe Pahelika has an auto save function, which is not standard in an adventure game, so do check and make sure the games saves. You may have to save manually.

As for rules of group play, we have no rules set in stone. We do ask that you avoid spoilers, if you have a question and it contains spoiler information please white the text out, as this will hide it, advance your question with a small explanation like I am in chapter 1 and I need help with…... or something like: I am in the kitchen and need to find…. Just a little bit of information so other players can identify were you are in the game, so they will know if they can read your spoiler without getting information they don’t want at the moment. If you don’t know how to do this, please feel free to ask and we will happily explain how to do this.

Furthermore we ask you to really play at your own pace: this is not a race nor a contest. It is all about enjoying the game, sharing the game experience and helping each other out.

We have a players list so that we know who we are playing with and keep track on who is playing and who has finished. If you pop in here and say you want to join I add your name to the players list. We also love helpers, helpers are people who have done at least one play through of the game. They are likely to have some more knowledge of the game from their earlier experience and they are of great help in the early stages of the game.

I’d say: let the fun begin and enjoy the game!

Do remember to ask any and all questions you want to.

I apologize for this write up not being up to its usual standard , but because of computer problems, I can’t access my game right now, so I can’t check the game, which would have allowed me to explain some more about the controls.

Good Morning! It's Saturday! (just barely)

This game reminds me a bit of Azada.

I'm in chapter 3. It's very easy compared to what we've doing in group. (refreshing!)

Hi Aquatic & Tide , I will add you two to the players list. And pssst; don't shout too loud how easy this game is, it might bite you in a later chapter or you could discourage new players

Thanks luv My computer works fine, it's my external that died (so I have to replace that ) and due to some technical consequences I can't access my BF games right now. But it will get sorted out!

I'm here too - bought the game two years ago but never played, so I'm just a player this round.
ETA: At the very beginning - just installed it this morning. Will try and catch up to everyone.

I'm here. Haven't started playing yet. Just opened game up and if you lower your resolution you don't get any black bars. And do I see sparkles, in an adventure game? (personally I don't like them but at least for anyone new to playing adventure game, this seems like a good game to start on! ) Can't see anywhere to turn them off?

- Was hoping CS would have got back to you by now, hopefully soon!

I think we're stuck with the sparkles, I tried to get rid of them too but couldn't find a way. They're driving me nuts - sometimes the whole scene sparkles! I'm at chapter 4 and taking a break... the game is kind of annoying me - doesn't seem to be any real point to it. Go there... come back. Go there.... come back.Over and over....

There is certainly a LOT of sparkles, haven't seen any game with quite as many! There is also a tutorial which I don't think you can turn of either, and seemed to be for the whole chapter one (just started chapter 2).

It's certainly a change of pace for us!

Jofer- Its nice to know I am not in the minority. I am remembering
now that I did play this game and never went back to it.
Kind of wiped it out of my memory-till now.
The one thing I noticed was he made this discovery, went through
the portal and he wants to get back home.
I'll never understand people who look for adventure just to
whine "I want to go home" 2 seconds later. Make up your
mind.
The game is a challenge in figuring out what to do next and at
least no clicking penalty.
Need to take a break but will be back.

It's more of a puzzle/riddle game than an adventure game so it depends on what is your taste or find easier or harder. It's a nice relaxing game for me so far, usually with our group plays there is some hair pulling!

Everything you click on sets of sparkles, Also I find it odd playing with a cursor that does not change, so it seems the only thing to do is click on every thing.
I have played it before , when it was first released but find I do not remember anything at all. Too many games, I guess.
Am on the third chapter, will take a break after that.

Had a lot of fun with this. Particularly liked the last Chapter because I like puzzles. Machines were least favorite and stuck there for awhile (couldn't get one machine powered up). So kept clicking around until something worked. Nice to be finished and now I'm off to go look at those CE's.

Good grief tidewaters you're finished already! I guess this really is a very short game.

CONGRATULATIONS ON FINISHING AND BEING FIRST TO FINISH TIDEWATERS

I just had a break so back to the zen garden. I love puzzles too.
