Hi everyone,

I'm also playing along....this is where I've got up to with a few false starts....

"Mina is fed. I've got off the beach. Tamed Jep and I'm now in the cave."

I probably haven't done everything I'm supposed to or in the right order, but I'm pleased at my progress so far

There's no real "right" order but you do have a set of tasks to accomplish.

For those who are looking for hooks for the fishing pole, do as hughchik
said or you could just look up high near where you found those thorns for some already curved
. You will need something long to cut those down. For things that are out of reach Jep is a good tool or if need be, he can be combined with things .

Sorry I was gone for a bit. I had to do some groceries and get my car inspected.

ETA Mr_Russ is right. But there are a few triggers in the game.

Well the movement is not very smooth for me. It will take a bit to get used to. Also how to you use an object in the inventory. When I pick something out of inventory and go back to main screen it is not in my hand but in a box on the left. Can't get it from there.

It is in your hand when it shows in the left box. That shows your active item. Just click where you want to use it and you'll automatically use it.

govols when you are in the inventory screen, just left click the item to pick it up and right click to go out of the inventory screen. If the item you picked up can be used with/for something you will get the little gear in a circle. If you can't use the item, the gear in a circle will have a red slash. Did I say that right ?

I think I understand jb. Was just trying to experiment with it. For example I picked up the worms out of inventory. was going to try and see if the crabs liked them. when I came out of inventory the worms were in a box on left side of screen. I couldn't grab the worms to try and give them to the crabs because when I moved my mouse towards the little box well of course the whole screen moves. But I do remember seeing the circle with the red x by the pool with the fish in it. Peeked at a spoiler so I know worms are for fishing. Will the object I have selected out of inventory automatically be used if it something I can use at the moment.

Not sure if that question made sense or not ...

Yes and yes. This is quite common when the game only allows you to be holding one thing at a time. Use item in left or right box on object in environment.

Yes, the item you pick is automatically tried on the first gear you click on. Whether it is used or not, it then automatically goes to the transit box.

Those crabs are nasty little buggers. Timing and patience are the key for them.

I've just finished getting her fed.

ETA there is no right or wrong thing to eat. Whilst eggs can be eaten now or used later, if you don't have any later there will be an alternative.

You should never get stuck in this game.

Mr_Russ. Time to go exploring now.

ETA there are a couple more eggs to be found. Do I hear birds in the background?

LOL Jofer , i am an European fishie and since we have other fishie friends/players on this side of the ocean who were really really eager to play, I've started the thread early.

Thanks for being a helper too! Are you playing as well?

Hi to all new players I'll put your name on the list in a bit.

Haven't done anything else in the game, so I am still at the very beginning and there for also haven't read any of your spoilers. But it sounds like you are having fun!

I'm late to the party (as usual).

I'm going to get the d/l started, got some running to do and then dive in...get stranded or however I end up on this mysterious island.

Yes I'm playing as well as helping - just playing slowly because RL keeps interrupting me
I'm dealing with a sick monkey right now.
