Thank you. I guess that's not too bad. But the more beautiful the game the more you dont want it to end. I fear this will be one of those.

They do follow on by saying this...

"We believe that very few will find every little secret. Those of you who will are in for a big treat."

so there could also be replay value in finding all the secrets.

Oh man oh man... This game is so polished with its presentation, art style, and sound effects.

What i love most so far is the exploration, and discovering paths as you play along. Add a very eerie atmosphere when exploring, and the unique cartoony art style feels darker.

Hopefully this game will take off and be a huge success, which benefits us also, meaning more updates !

They mentioned earlier that there are no planned updates. I am hoping for a huge success to get another game out of these guys. BSB was my favorite game last year.

BTW, for those following the "Decoders Club" thread, http://www.vedtorp.se/ has been updated today. If you click around you will see real life photos of places within the game such as the windmill and the red barn. I'll do some more digging on the site when I can.

Thanks for the info, if this game is as good as I think it will be. I will be happy to pay for a sequel.

We have designed them so they can be enjoyed separately. With that said, we definitely recommend experiencing both the game and the companion. You will be glad you did!
Still pretty cryptic.

So, is there unique info in the companion app that can't be found anywhere or if you fully explore the main game will you find out everything? I really don't want to do a juggling act.

There are codes found in the game that you can enter in the companion app to unlock content. Not sure what that content may be.

Playing: Xenowerk, Space Marshals, Drylands

May be my only buy tonight. Was interested in Gods:Rebellion, but not suprisingly doesn't support 3GS.

Loving the moody look of this one though.
