How are you, old friend?

If youre reading this, then it worked. I only hope you can still forgive me.

Weve never seen eye to eye on my research, but you must put such things behind you. You are the only one to whom I can turn.

You must come at once, for we are all in great peril. I trust you remember the house? My study is the highest room.

Press forward with heart. There is no way back now.

AS.

Finished it. It's f-ing awesome. Unique, very beautiful and tactile, and deeply atmospheric. Criticisms? It's perhaps a little too easy and a little too short, and the ending is just a sequel hook which I always hate, but I wouldn't let those things put you off. This is an experience rather than a "game" and it's one that shouldn't be missed.

A wonderfull,beautifull game. Fall has just set into the Netherlands and the wind and rain bashing on the windows only contribute to the mood. With the tv off and a glass (well,make that a bottle ) of red wine i had an excellent evening.
Unfortunetly when i started it up this morning it didn't save my progress. I finished chapter 2 last night,but i can't start chapter 3. For this kind of games that's not a good thing.

Edit: after 2 more restarts it seems to have recognised my save again.phew..

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Just bought and sinked 1 hour in this gem.

AMAZING.

Feel really like an original Myst game, without the walking.
Great atmosphere and super polished experience.

Can't wait to play more.

Help, please! :)

Absolutly fantastic. This is like one of the most fascinating games I have played on the (new) iPad. Highly recommended to anyone who is even just vaguely interested in puzzlegames.

BUT: I can't get past the riddle with the sun-amulet rotating the "block" in the middle of the table... I just don't know what to make of the arrows in the middle? What order? Anyone?
