And I liked Dream. AND the puzzles in Dream.



Now if you could do a search for all the mental asylums in PA, I'd be most appreciative.

Don't worry. I've already notified them. You hear that knock on your door? No?

Well I would suggest staying away from men in white from now on.

:D

Wait. You're encouraging aander to avoid the people you sent after him? :D

I don't doubt it. Something tells me that sometimes I need to be taken away somewhere.

But getting back onto the original topic. So you liked the puzzles in dream with the conversations? I honestly had no clue how to do those. I cheated. :D

Well, I knew what to do, and generally how to go about doing it, but really, the first Dream puzzle only took me about 15 minutes, and I rather enjoyed it. The second one I loved. There was a moment where I thought this was going to take me hours, but then things started to fall into place.

I loved Haven and hated Edanna, if there's a special place for bipolar disorders where you're now... :D

As for Dream, I liked the puzzles too. I think the first one was ingenious, if a bit classical (if it was made with machinery instead of puffy orbs of doom, maybe people would appreciate it more?), and the second tied up the story nicely. Dream itself? NO. :rotflol:

Congrats on finishing Reve anyway! :conejump:

I liked the first puzzle, but found the second one irritating, though I don't really remember the specifics of why.

'cause it looked hideous, maybe? Floating objects and glowing symbols on twirly background? :D

I liked that it sort of made sense for what you were trying to achieve (she's confused: reconstruct her memories to un-confuse her) and that you were greatly aided by paying attention to the story.

I actually figured that one out so much faster than the first puzzle (because there are a lot less steps, even though they are quite a lot more complicated - it made it easier to map out and all).

The mechanics of it were more complicated (what you could or could not do was more immediately obvious in the first puzzle), the voices and random floating objects could get annoying after time, and it all could be colored by the huge spider-brain-monstrosity. Those are probably the main reasons.

Yeah, the puzzle was actually very well integrated into the story (giving little bits of information to finish up the plotline, having an actual reason, that kind of stuff).

The first time I played Revelation, I actually skipped the first dream puzzle. Yeah, you can do that. :D

But now that I knew what it was and what had to happen, I found it quite fun. There's nothing like mass deleting 7 or 8 yellows at a time. :rotflol: I also found out something that I'm not sure people realized, but I could be completely wrong and this could be common knowledge, but I actually used the "Reset" to my benefit. If I couldn't see any colored ones, I would reset it intentionally because it organizes them into a closer space for you. Once I figured that out, the whole idea of being in an infinite 360 puzzle when you could only see a piece of it didn't seem so bad after all. :conejump:

I didn't mind the second one, but the first one made me want to toss my mom's laptop out the window. I didn't (though me playing Rev on it before I got my own laptop was the most use that hers ever got), and got through it, but nevertheless. I just flailed the hand around until they turned white. And yelled at my spirit guide a fair amount (though he deserved it).
