Ah the joy of going through these things for the first time! Enjoy Jawa!
That said it makes me wish the wider game was as demanding as some of those early moments. For example the Plateau as the only area where I really worried about having to enter a cold area and felt like it was a challenge that I had to prepare for. Similarly with things like needing to chop down trees to traverse chasms - that part that encourages this in the opening is I think the only time I ever did it.
Still a phenomenal experience I just wish I had to be more inventive throughout!
I'm guessing while admiring the games menu his finger sort of 'twitched' and accidentally pressed on new game then he experienced a moment of shock at what he'd done and got twitchy finger syndrome again, accidentally pressing on a save file to start with. And so, the journey into the wild has started for Sir Jawa.
I thought Jawa had started this and just never got off the plateau. Or maybe it's just that now that with every big title, in my head I clearly define The Jawa Horizon, which is the point you clear where you know Jawa would give up.
