Looks short. I got to the beginning of chapter 6 with 13 minutes left in the demo hour. - so should take two to tho and a half hours unless the remaining chapters increase in length

I did an hour of it during the beta test, dowloaded it just after it came out at 3am EST and just finished about 05:20. Decent length,almost 3.5 hours, but I did have to take a short break now and then to let my dogs in and out. They are loving the snow, but won't all come in at the same time, lol. Of course I now have about four more hours to kill before bedtime, and I don't have another game to play. Guess I could start up Anka...I played the demo on that one elsewhere and liked it but didn't buy it at that time. Since I started playing games, I hardly ever watch TV anymore...don't think I have even had it on at all since last summer, so two games a night is par for me, as most of them are about three hours if I just take my time.

Eight chapters done in one hour... only 5 to go... This is far too short !

If it is only 3 + hours, I will play all the minigames, otherwise it would be too short.
I can highly recommend Anka.
Look how the reviews changed once people got into it.
Try it wirhout the walkthrough, otherwise you might miss the fun.

It's really interesting on how long it takes to play a game. I must be a slow player because I just finished the game demo and only finished Chapter 3. I am not sure if I want to buy the game or not It's not a bad game but it's not as good as some of the others.

Have a great Friday everyone!

I've been playing the demo and got as far as the antiques shop in 30 minutes. Is it chapter 3 please or have I miscounted?

According to the Big Fish walkthrough, the antique shop is chapter 4.

I have finished 2 chapter in 18 min. appr., so I think the gamelength is very short, appr. 2 hours.

I finished through the first scene in chapter 8 in the one hour trial. I played the puzzles and mini-games as I went along and read the journal as it became available. Based on that, is seems that the game will last about 2 hours or slightly less.

I'm not sure about the replay value unless you go back and choose a different play mode. I think there was Easy and Normal, but I think that related to the hints. You wouldn't need extra hints on subsequent play. I didn't see any mini-games that you could replay.

I don't think I will buy this one because it is so short. Too Bad!
I really liked the first Vernioca Rivers game.

I bought this one before I realized how short it was, and I'm a slow player. Not worth a game credit!

I got to chapter 8 in my demo and I thought at the time that I was playing slowly. However I did skip 2 mini games and the cut scenes. I still think it will be to short for me though considering it has only 5 more chapters to go.
I did like the graphics.

I have played for a bit over 3 hours and still more to go so I am not finding it to be extremely short, however, I am finding it boring so wishing it was shorter right now

I used a free credit on this so I did not overpay, but overall the game (to include length) was just eh. The ending was just plain silly!

Blessings,

I liked the game, but it is very short, took me about 3 hours of leisurely play. You won't need the walkthrough, or the hints. I'm glad I used one of my free credits for it, I wouldn't have been happy if I'd paid for it ! Having said that, it was fun and the graphics are cool
