    a good job with this one, Increpare. I think you and Terry Cavanagh are some of the few people who really *get* the impact game mechanics can have on story, and how to combine the two.

    I’m stuck on the third puzzle! I’m down to the last shoe, but when I swap the pieces into place, they just switch back and I lose points. Is this a bug or an intentional and dark message?

  5. it’s neither, or maybe the former. Erm; basically: there’re a couple of ‘goals’ to each level. you have to complete them in order, and one at a time, if you try to put the last piece of clothing into place (a certain ‘goal’) that would simultaneously put everything in order (another ‘goal’) it won’t let you. I didn’t make this as clear as maybe I should (or maybe I should have scratched the idea).

    Excellent. Really thoughtful and yet also a very please game mechanic. Probably the best example to show anyone when arguing against the mindlessness of games.

    I just played this game, and when I exited the program my mouse pointer changed. Now it looks like this odd tall row of lines. I went into my mouse settings to reset what my pointer looked like, and that only made my pointer disappear completely, only to come back a while later as a different row of lines. I have no clue what is going on here.

  11. That is very strange. You tried restarting? Doesn’t sound like a problem that I can take responsibility for.

    Hey, it might be way too late for this comment to be read ever, but the mac version doesn’t seem to work for me. It immediately crashes every time. This has actually happened for more than one of your games for me, but I can’t remember what the other ones were. I have OS X 10.7.5 if that helps.

    It’s not a big deal, I’ll just run the Windows version in Wine. Just thought I would mention it. Also, I am a fan! Judith and English Country Tune are two of my favourite games of all time, and I genuinely enjoy every single game of yours I’ve played. Keep it up. =]

  14. almost none of my old games work on newer versions of osx (I used to use the allergo graphics library, which uses some api calls that have been removed from recent versions of OSX).

    The game doesn’t work on either of my computers. It crashes on my AMD only rig instantly and on my Intel/nvidia laptop the screen freezes after 3 seconds or so after entering the menu the sound works but the game does not.

  16. M3NACE, sorry to hear that. It was made with quite an old game engine, and it doesn’t work on the more recent OSX versions, for instance. If you could let me know what operating system you use, that would be useful.

  18. Ok, thanks for letting me know. I’m unlikely to fix it any time soon (though if someone else wants to try recompiling+fixing it, be my guest…) – I don’t have a windows box right now.
