Yea! I've been waiting for this game because I loved Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates by the same devs. It's 4:45. here and I'm wide awake (another gramma who can't sleep). This April Fool's gift is going to be fantastic! Thanks BF and devs!

Thank you for the very kind words, girouard, I really appreciate them! I seldom write a "real" review because usually, by the time I DL a game, there are already 3 pages of reviews on the forum. Maybe insomnia had a good use, for once.

I was delighted to see the "MagicIndie" brand screen show up when I opened the game. I fell madly in love with their "Robinson Crusoe 2" and have played it several times, already. It's one of those games that delight, amuse and challenge, all at the same time, and it has some unique puzzles that still keep me working.

I wonder if it would be difficult for BFG to add the name of a developer to a game description? We all recognize our favorite series games but I, myself, have no way of knowing if the developers of a game I loved also developed a new game, not in a series, unless I DL the demo.

Which, of course, won't kill me. :-D

there were some items that you had to do something to an item to get it example baked bread (you had to put the bread in the oven to bake) then after it baked you could get the bread.

Yes - i enjoyed these interactive bits ALOT too!!!

Happy April Fools and Poisson d'Avril to our French friends and all

When I saw this title and the character before I even realised what day it is, I assumed the Fool to be the first card in Tarot, surprised nobody mentioned the "coincidence" or is it intentional. Fits the character, as the Fool isn't as one thinks stupid, just personifies one who hasn't yet learned the meaning of danger or what to fear yet. KInda like a toddler taking off exploring his/her "world", curious, naive, often encountering serendipity of hero along a fresh new journey. New beginnings. Don't want to turn off those who don't understand the stories in Tarot, so find your own meaning of fool.

That said, then seeing it is from the wonderful studio that gave us Crusoes I am in glee! It's been too long waiting for any game as fun, light hearted, funny and wish it were the next trend. Great quality and HUMOR. Only Mishaps 1,2, Vampireville and Reincarnation Awakening come to mind as just pure fun games.

It will be long enough for me as was RC Cursed Pirates as I tend to get off track and wander around a lot but don't mind in a game like this with the color and little interactions and good reading (click many times to get more lines said). 40 min into it I was stuck, to and froing hoping to find more HOG scenes but more and more puzzles. Skipped a few for time sake but will start over after full game d/l. They didn't seem to be too difficult for me anyway and shouldn't be stumpers.

I left to see the WT and like most adventures my tour is all mixed up from where the WT leads you, already done most of what I read going in different doors, but somehow missed what I could do with a ladder, so went back to finish the hour. Seems to be a lot more mini puzzles than HOGs but that's ok if not hair pullers that hold me up too long I forget where I was going or been.

Nocturnal here too, not just age, always was, my "day" starts at midnight PST to see what new games and quiet enough to play a demo or resume a game sans interruptions. Muted TV to hear sounds, but heard the surf pound and roar a block away and seals barking like crazy. Can't hear ocean days with traffic or low tides, no storms tonight so just nice natural sounds to relax and enjoy this long awaited game. Happy fishie here

I had one credit saved for this game, because I hoped it would be coming out today, and it's too early to get my March credits yet.

There have been several reviews so far that gave details on options and gameplay, so I'll skip that part. I do have a question, though. I turned down my music volume as usual, but the voice volume also got very low even though the other sounds sliders were near max. Did anyone else encounter this? Or is the voice volume naturaly low?

Anyway, it's certainly not enough to stop me from purchasing this interesting game. And an SE, too!!!

Of course, what I really want to purchase is one of those Midieval Microwaves! I can see the infomercials now!

Hi, Cynnana,

Did you try the easy mode which is untimed. It is a fun game. Hope you can try it.

For anyone's information (I think the question was how to do spoilers in same post?) just type your post, then highlight the part that may be giving away something more than a tip by swiping the line with left button down. Then pull down menu for Text color above the compose box, select white, then release. The white on white is invisible unless someone wants to highlight it to read in black.

Easy enough?

Otherwise, start a new thread marking it a spoiler in topic, or the item you are giving a solution for. I read them all because by the time I get to the game I've forgotten what is said anyway, but some of us aren't so memory impaired as I

Digger, welcome to the pond! When you ask a question on gameplay, it's best to start a separate thread by clicking on "Create Discussion" (after you have checked the other threads to see if it's already been posted.)

I can't help with the answer because I'm just starting myself, but there is now a walkthrough posted. Click the NEWS tab at the top of the page.

Highlight below

You need to hold down the left mouse button while pushing your mouse back and forth.

Sorry for the delay, hope this helps

Where is the timer? I am playing on hard mode, is it on the easy mode?

I also beta tested this and really enjoyed it. I'm reasonably experienced at HOGS/IHOGS but still found the game a challenge. Looking forward to playing the full version.

Despite all the wonderful reviews for yesterday's game, I really couldn't get into it. With only one thing to do in most of the beautiful scenes then the scene closed, I found myself actually getting bored. Today's game seems much more up my alley and looking forward to trying it out. Oh, goodie it just finished dl'ing so off to try it out. I have 2 credits to use and this may be a good place to spend one of them.

This is a lovely game and it has the options for help in the form of sparkles which I like or you have the option of turning them off to make the game harder for those of you who prefer it that way. The graphics are very sharp and well drawn. The mini games made me think and the story is cute. This is a definite buy for me. It reminds me of the SE's that Big Fish used to provide pretty regularly. Thanks BF for offering us this very nice and fun game.

Hi Ann

I think the poster's quote was aimed more at the 'Sample' rather than a timed option in the game. You know, instead of the 1 hour demo.

I also thank you for this info! I usually don't give spoilers away in my posts, but I'm afraid I have a couple times while ranting about games.
