Timers and none...

I just wanted to say that this game is not really a HOG. It isn't really even an IHOG. This is an adventure game that has a very few objects to find, but they are all inventory items that you will use to solve puzzles. Typically, adventure games have no timers, since the essence of the game is to wander around, find inventory, and solve puzzles. I suppose they could put timers on individual puzzles, but it would be very atypical of this genre.

Adventure games are not intended to be played quickly, but rather thoughtfully or meditatively. If you like racing against the clock, that's up to you, but then adventure is not your genre, because it is not a timer kind of game.
