So many moments where you feel completely stumped/stupid, followed by 'I am a genius', followed by 'the designer is a genius'.

102 panels completed so far.

This is brilliant. Thanks to Advent7!


Just unlocked this too - forgot to go to that part of the island :fp:

Advent7 :wub:

I haven't played anything else since getting this. The way you can go back to somewhere you've been before and see something you never saw previously is so damn clever.

Does anyone else look out for the circle/line motif in the real world when out and about..? :oops:

You guys still playing this? We are, God only knows how many hours we've put in, must be pushing 40 now. So close to getting all of those black obelisks finished, two left to complete and about 6 things on them split evenly.

We're damn well going to do this without any outside help 8-)

Oh and this is my GOTY :datass:

Yeah I'm still playing but in a short session in between with other games like the Last Guardian or Division. :)

Holy gooseberry fool there's this really obtuse and hard puzzle that we've been stuck on for hours, like we've spent entire evenings trying to solve it. This morning we just stopped by where it is and I cracked it on my second and quick try :lol: :x :x It was so simple too, strawberry float sake.

:wub:

Closing in on the final puzzles now.

the one with the sound booth under the shipping container. So bloody simple, especially as I'd done all of the ships ones in the woods ages ago. I was completely over thinking it. Only got two obelisks left to finish now, with a couple of hidden patterns on each to find.

Ah! Yes. I found one of the upstairs container ones tough (one of only three puzzles I had to sketch out - and when I did it became stupidly easy).

Have you got the platinum yet? So much to talk about there!

Think I'm going to have to give this a go. Would it play ok on i-pad?

The puzzles would work well, but I imagine the world navigation would be a bit of a chore with a touch interface.

Though the last I heard, they hadn't even started working on the iOS version. If they do release it, the pricing will be interesting, seeing how outraged people get about paying proper game prices for apps.

We've just this second done those upstairs puzzles and......
nothing happened. Nothing :|

We've not looked up anything at all on this game so at have no idea what's in store. We got to the ending and when it sent you back to a new game we loaded up an offer save to carry on.

Oh my, this game is slowly but surely making its way up from my 2016 GOTY to the lofty heights of my top games ever :wub:

Were must be on 40 or 50 hours now, and we're STILL finding entire areas hidden away, and thats just when we thought we were done. Finding them made us feel like the most intelligent people on earth, I think I did a genuine Banderas at one solution. Also found something which was just insanely clever, proper mouth open shake your head impressed. Just brilliant.

So we've gone to being nearly done (we've already 'finished' it once) to having God only knows how much left to do :toot:

Those of you still playing, pleeeaaaase do yourselves a favour and NEVER look up anything on this, no reviews, no solutions, no hints no matter how small and how tempted you may be. There's been some frankly incredible solutions and the things that followed which would have zero impact if you knew the smallest thing about them.

So er yeah I like this a bit :oops:

Brilliant! :lol:

And it's so true, I've been there myself, just didn't have the words for it. You have found them.

Heh, one of my writers kept revisiting that through 2016 to finish it. She came over just before Christmas and I suggested trying it after about four months off, and she did it second time. So proud. :toot:

Interesting aside: in the debug preview build I had in 2015 that was some rock/metal music instead.
