Right after the control gets back to Gromit, after getting the 3 ingredients (and perhaps also launching the honey-making machine, I don't remember this bit), I exited the game and when I came back 3 weeks later to play, Gromit is stuck on the house with Wallace following him in every room and there is nothing to do.
I only have the tennis racket in the inventory, I tried every possible interaction I could think of, and nothing advances the story. When launching the game, the story reminder teaches me nothing, telling me I have the 3 ingredients (groteine, fortium, battery if I remember correctly) and that it's time to make some honey. Enabling the hints at the highest frequency does not help, not a single hint is given. Trying to follow a walkthrough does not help either.
Last but not least, I strongly feel that it is a bug that Gromit refuses to:
- exit the kitchen to go outside
- exit the house by the front door
- go to the basement
so he's stuck to navigate in the living room, the entrance hall, the kitchen and the room upstairs.
I feel this is a bug also because when going to the living room (remember that Wallace follows Gromit everywhere, is it normal?), this time he's sitting behind the table asking for his breakfast, that I completely gave him much earlier in the game. I'm not even talking about Wallace following Gromit in the kitchen and then when the light board is activated, hearing Wallace's voice from outside the very room he's currently in.
I have read many bug reports for this game in this forum, and I feel that it should have already received bugfixes, that have yet to come. So can you at least tell me if I'm missing something after one hour of trying everything or if this is a bug ? (that you, as I heard you say it in this forum, will fix maybe once you finish with your schedule of new game releases, knowing those games will not get bugfixes either before some other games are released... because who cares about fitting your existing already-paid customers needs into your schedule when you can cater to those of new paying customers, right?)
Thanks by advance if you can at least take the time to answer even with your busy schedule of looking forward and never behind. Sorry if I sound a bit harsh, but there are simply some excuses that I consider customers should never get.
