Just released yesterday onto Steam, this is a lovely game. It's quiet and quite calming to wander around this paradise looking for bits and pieces to solve the puzzles. My pc took all day to download as my second hard drive kept "disappearing". The wait was worth it. It's had me spellbound for 3 hours.

Anyone else planning to play this?

Thank you so much for the recommendation, Caroline! I've been waiting for someone to give some feedback on this one. I also just purchased from Steam and will download later today. Just recently I got a huge boost in my wireless broadband and can actually download games like this is less than a couple of days! Not bad for living out in the country!.

For anyone else interested in this game which was just released yesterday, September 21st, here is the Steam link...

I backed this on Kickstarter a long time ago - looking forward to playing it when I have time! I do love a good Mystlike.

Just spent about 45 minutes in the game... Wonderful and just what I needed as I'm sort of in-between games right now. So excited that what would have taken at least 20 - 24 hours to download just took less than an hour! Heaven bless my little local ISP!

Time seems to vanish when I sit to play this game. For the second night I've sat, totally engrossed, not movoing for three hours. I'm still nowhere near through the first doorway. The scenery is fabulous. I feel like I'm in a posh resort with all these palm trees. The puzzles are just the level I like but there was an unexpected twist in one which had me stuck on and off all day. I went looking for hints, found none, tried again and then, thought outside the box. Made me laugh. I'm learning not to take this game for granted. Top marks to the developer for anticipating how we gamers wouldn't expect the unexpected. I'm currently stuck again. :) I think we're all going to love this game.

I couldn't agree more! I've only spent about an hour in it, but wow, just wow! I'm so glad you mentioned it...

Looking at the specs, I'm not sure my current Asus laptop as the graphics horsepower to play this game. I've got soooooo many unplayed games, though, I don't need to be buying anything new. The only games I have time to play these days are Big Fish games anyway. Sounds and looks like a beaut though!

Yes, it definitely needs some pretty good graphics horsepower. And if your ASUS has integrated graphics, then it definitely won't play.

Nope... won't work then! Too bad, because this is a really good one. Oh, well. Like you say you have plenty of unplayed games to keep you busy!

OMG! The clock hands puzzle is making me crazy! Gaaaaa....!!!

Yep. But when you get it, it works. LOL Not that I've solved this area. Just that I've figured out how the clock works. Still can't get the door open though. How did you go with the fish? I was stacking up coconuts across the stepping stones and transporting them over. I can't believe I was so dumb on that one.

If you mean the fish with the big mouths, there was a clue in a nearby pedestal. I understand how the clock works, but it's STILL driving me mad! I finally got to the door, but I still have to find out where to get the piece so the door will open.
