Hmm, I wonder what the impressions on this will be. Anyone try this yet?

Well, this was unexpected. Sounds like a lot of fun, though I wonder how long it is. But yeah, the price, I know..

MetalCasket did and loved it, for what it's worth.

Frickin' amazing game. Wow! Truly feels like the first time I played Monkey Island and Simon the Sorcerer.

It looks likes Gold Rush from Sierra! Back in the 80s, I remember begging my parents to call long distance to California from NY just so I could get hints. Hopefully this game will be great! Will be cheapest I-week for me ever unless 'Splosion Man comes out...

From the iPad thread:
I really wish that we could have a thread spread into both sections. Is there any way to do that?

And I'm in, that's good enough for me. Anything like SOMI is enough praise for me

This is the real deal guys! Proper 100% nailed the old skool Lucasarts vibe!

I'm not that far in yet but can tell this is not going to disappoint. Just wanted to jump in here and say how great this is and how exciting it is to find!

Writing so far is top notch had me laughing loud a few times already and it's tone and humour is spot on. No spoilers here but really this type of game makes me feel like I'm 16 again! (And I'm 37 now). Memories of exploring Monkey Island big time! The art is lovely, there's no hand-holding like you get in most of today's point and click releases. There are loads of scenes to go between even at the start so the puzzles and items are nicely spaced out, and not laid down for you like chicken feed leading you to an answer, so this nails that aspect too (can only imagine it branches out even more later).

Really nice surprise. Will be playing this as much as I can this long weekend whilst watching my missus play Bioshock Inifinite, so that was good timing!

This is so obviously a labour of love and tribute to 90's classics... I hope they are financially successful but I fear that day has passed. Anyway if you are reading this you should buy it... It is what you are expecting!

This pretty much covers my impressions as well. Only thing I can't speak for yet is the overall quality of the puzzles, because I'm also not that far in, but as far as feel goes this nails it. Just one glaring issue: it's only 99c.
