Bought this also. I didn't understand the advert though, so frightened to start it in case I can't get past level 1.

I've been thinking about playing this since I put it down. To me that's the sign of a great puzzle game.

This will ruin me @.@ Gosh it gets wickedly tough in time.

My initial aspirations of getting to the credits sans hint guide seem so quaint in retrospect :simper: Heck even with it can still stump me...

Are the latter pages working for everyone else? The link works okay for me and then trying to go to any other page gives an error.

I dunno, I intend to not use any hints even if it means staring at the screen for hours at a time until inspiration takes me (or I throw the Switch at the wall).

I'm in the Lake area and I've completed puzzle 12. I took me a while to complete some of the recent ones, but it feels good :-) .

It's very satisfying when it clicks together in your head. It's also very deflating when you think you've got it but once you try your solution there was something you overlooked. :lol:

So what's people's biggest 'f*ck me that was obvious' moment so far?

I've just had a classic one on Deep Forest :. Must have spent half an hour on it - then today, the first thing I try works. :fp:

EDIT: And I needed all the hints on E. Strewth.

I have been so tempted to purchase this since launch, but given how little time i am able to hold out on Thimbleweed Park before calling the hint line, i'm not sure if i'm patient enough anymore to go through the agony so i can experience the ecstasy...

I'm clearing up World 3/Temple Ruins at the moment, after getting the third flower collectible I went back to the world map and tried the "Level Finale" A Way Out? and boy I have not even been introduced to some of the concepts in that yet :lol:

I need to get back to this but can't seem to tear myself away from Stardew Valley.

I think I might have a problem.

You’re not, the game is just smarter than you. And me. And all of us.

I think you’ll meet them quite soon! There’s nothing too obscure/late-game in that one. Unlike in world six where I am now where you get to move the empty space.

Yes! I'm a genius!

Oh no wait, I'm a doofus.

But, hang on, I'm a genius again!

Until I become a doofus once more.

What a brilliant game this is so far, I can see myself losing hours in it.
