Feel free to comment and discuss this game here. Also, if you have any useful tips or tricks don't hesitate to share them with the others! Thanks!

Review + download
Furthermore, it is my opinion that Carthage must be destroyed.

Yep, this is quite a nice game. Very creepy.
the ending will make you wet your pants not unlike your brothers face.
Pi stinks, tastes horribles, and I hate it! But cake is good...

Mmm, I didn't like it as much.
I'd have given it a 3.5 or such.

Still worth playing.
Definitely still worth playing tho'.

EDIT: And they could've at least used the same rendering tool they used to make the backgrounds to make some decent character models.

The Reloaded community is a bit too soft on adventures, so far the best on the site are the Stranger games and the King's Quest remakes, ways too many 4 or 5s methinks.

Great at the beginning, boring in the middle und ok at the end.  :blink:
The game crashed several times, especially after cutscenes and after loading.
Cutscenes should be possible to skip, I remember one with nearly 5 Minutes.
Walking speed is too slow in some places.

I'm looking forward to the sequel, great work  :P

Oh, fer cryin'...Does nobody read the manual? The "walk speed is too slow" arguement always let's me know the people who DIDN'T read it. RTFM!!! :blink: :P

In other news, we had to change website addresses. LGM, my webmaster, said Prodigal was killing his bandwidth. The game is now hosted by Filefront. Hopefully I can get in mirrored here? I don't like Filefront 'cause you can't get a direct download link. Kinda annoying.

I've hopefully updated all the places that contained the old web addie...but let me know if I missed someplace. It is now:

Haven't played yet but I will eventually. I would have already if it wasn't for the player character, kinda put me off a bit.

It's my second favorite game of all time, I think, after Psychonauts.
Really creepy atmosphere, traumatizing ending.
I confess that the middle part is a bit boring and some puzzles were too easy.
But the rest, music, atmosphere, story, outweight all of this.

Lovely game - very creepy.   :P

It's an excellent story with lots of atmosphere.  That was an interesting twist at the end - didn't expect that to happen.  


Looking forward to the sequel.   :blink:

Haha, yeh this is a great game, but like all horror games, I read the walkthrough first so it wouldn't scare me. :blink: That didn't work. Great great game.

Our download link links to your page, so if you changed it there (which I noticed you did :D) it should be alright for everyone who tries to get it from here. :blink:

I suppose there is a possibility we can host it, but I can't answer that. You should PM Taikara and discuss it with her. :P

Means the "beaming button" ?
Even if I found the 3rd mouse button on my notebook I'd rather walk slowly than zapping through places.

This game is now hosted on our site (again) :blink:

It was set up for hosting a few days ago, but there seemed to be a bit of confusion, and the download location was switched to the FileFront download site, hehe.
