Twin Peaks Awesomeness- But Please Scratch The Gameplay.

The atmosphere is FANTASTIC.

A pure throwback to early Twin Peaks-ian goodness that I immensely enjoyed along with the unique art style.

The gameplay however was plain atrocious. The puzzles were cute at first but quickly became repetitive and a retro-geeklords' wet dream.

It's a waste to use such a beautiful and unique artistic vision to cater to 15 or maybe 20 30yr olds-in-their-parents'-basements.

I say make it a traditional Telltale adventure game and I'm sold.

As it is, I'll be sticking to Sammun Mak.

  • Stick to it then. Lots of people got this BECAUSE they wanted puzzles.

    That's a highly prejudiced, uninformed assertion. Lots of people -- of all different ages, shapes and sizes -- like puzzle games.

    I didn't think the puzzles were repetitive at all. There were some series of certain puzzle types, where later ones were of increasing difficulty. That's not at all unusual for puzzle games.

    If you don't like puzzle games, then don't play puzzle games.

    What a bizarrely uncalled for and insecure comment. And I don't know if it's some sort of "retro geeklord's" wet dream...while there is Dr Brain, this is more of a cash in on recent casual success Professor Layton. And this is easily the most casual and NON-geeklord of their point and click adventure titles hands down. Damn casual geeklords with their normal day jobs geeking up the game for you with that taint of basement stank.

    Truth, I am 22 years old with a house and a job, and the gameplay here was exactly what I wanted. Also, the art style is based on a universe created by the former creative director of TTG! If anyone knows how the style should be used, it is him.

  • Hey, where'd you find that picture of the OP?

  • OK, let's keep it civil, please.

  • Regardless of age or housing situation, it is simply a different genre. It is understandable if you didn't connect to this game the same way you would to Monkey Island or Sam and Max because they're apples and oranges.

    P.S. SImply knowing the difference would be enough to make one nerdy enough for "parent's basement" status.

    P.P.S. A fifteen-year-old wouldn't live in his parent's basement, he would just live with his parent's. He's still in high school you know.

  • ok guys. i just finish the early puzzle and its fantastic. love the game

    But when i start playing the game i was like. damn this game would have been great if it was an adventure.

    Still love the puzzles

    The OP isn't civil, why should the people responding to him treat him any differently? You can't just make threads insulting everyone who likes a game and expect any discussion to come of it.
