    GOG does not help to raise my steamcount, FFS.

    Also the game was good enough to warrant the release price, you misers.

    I don't usually leap in to defend our own work, but I will in this case. This was brought up during production. It's established that the surgical procedure in the game changes you at the genetic/cellular level, so it wouldn't have made a difference.

    Back to lurking. As you were.

    The 3d looks suspect, and I don't think it lends itself well to adventure games - more of a liability than an asset. Still, the author has a good track record.

    Don't screw it up. :argh:

    That's only experimentation, read the follow-up diaries. James will likely settle with 3D-created art assets rendered to 2D backgrounds. He even found a Blender plugin that can convert animated characters into sprite animations.

    Finished this one yesterday and liked it very much. Not as good as primordia but better than other wadjet eye games.

    The puzzle difficulty was right for the most part, but got stuck right in the last few puzzles, specially because I didn't notice there was an extra floor in the last elevator.

    Liked the characters, and the setting was familiar but having a few twists to not feel tired (it's a welfare state and not a neo-liberal dystopia, and that's refreshing even for a leftie commie like me).

    Shardlight looks interesting, and it's post-apocalyptic which is always good, but I've heard tell that a decent chunk of the puzzles suffer from Old Man Murray Syndrome.

    Not sure about that syndrome, which I admit being ignorant about, but sure as hell the puzzles are piss-easy and the plot feels a bi shaky at times, especially towards the end. Still, I did quite enjoy the game's visuals, atmosphere, and writing. It is a very short game, I finished it in 6 hours so that's what you can expect to have wasted if you end up not liking it.

    If it's piss easy it probably doesn't suffer from the old man Murray syndrome.

    Technobabylon had a borderline old Murray moment with the glowing fish puzzle, but it wasn't too bad

    Overall, WEG's in-house titles aim for straightforward and predictable puzzles to avert the problem you discuss, so I don't think you'll find it frustrating. Everything I've read suggests that no one found the puzzles an obstacle, which can be a plus or a minus depending on your tastes.

    On the contrary, a solution to most of the puzzles is "shoot it with you fucking crossbow, dumbass"

    Both Shardlight and Technobabylon are very inexpensive on GOG right now. (So's Primordia and the rest of the WEG back catalogue.)

    Finished this yesterday. What an interesting game. I feel like it didn't hit its stride until after Latha's escape from CEL, when it becomes definitively about helping Regis while learning about his past. I didn't like how the game played before that, funneling you from scenario to scenario with lots of cutscenes before the stakes have been clearly established. Overall I feel like the game probably had more dialogue than it needed ("All right, let's climb the Fulcrum tower and end this!...or we can head right back into Vargas' office and explore three different dialogue trees.")

    Also echo the other criticisms in this thread, but that's what bothered me personally.

    But yeah, the hacking puzzles and all that stuff was definitely cool. Glad to see they're making a sequel, you could do a lot more with that. BTW I don't think anybody in this thread ever figured out that "Jinsil" the Arabic hacking lady in the Trance was Nina Jeong.
