Can I make a suggestion about the gui? It is a lec style gui, so I dont feel it should just popup at the bottom when you move the mouse there. That was a bit of an annoyance for me.
My suggestions would be to either:
1) Make a verbcoin GUI type with all the functions and when you click on Garfield you get a the inv window on
2) Leave the gui on at all times like in the LEC games and when garfield walks to right above the gui, the room will scroll down so that we dont miss anything we need on that screen.
But, if you want to keep the GUI the way it is, thats fine with me, the game more than makes up for it. It rocks!
