I thought it was a joke, but cat mentioned she was working on this since 2007 in PM.
Well, what can I say. It's nice to finish the old works. :)

A lovely game, cat! I really liked the graphics, and the writing's pretty great too. Sweet, short AGS goodness all around!

OMG, [...] you like my game! :-D

You also got my niece giggling as I played the game for her. She loved it! And she's 3! A couple more games like that and she'll turn into an Adventure geek!

Enjoyed it, very relaxing gaming experience. Bonus points for
the minigame and the bonus materials!
As I will soon write in the gamepage, it is especially suited to children of new adventurers (a great game to play together!).
The manual too deserves mention: I like to see well made manuals (using LaTeX! First time I see that in an AGS production) with clear instructions and a "first steps" section for players new to the genre.
Quote from: Miez
Adventure Games, classic point & click, may have a small niche, but I think it's a niche worth working in and providing great games in.

Thanks for your nice comments and kind words!

and the writing's pretty great too.
Most credit for this goes to LimpingFish, who did an excellent job not only in proofreading, but also making something fluent out of my babbling.
Speaking of credit, I want to take the opportunity and thank my team, without whom the game wouldn't be like it is today. HandsFree did a fantastic job with the music and alpha testing and Crimson Wizard, Arj0n and especially Tabata overwhelmed me with bug reports and gameplay improvements.

A couple more games like that and she'll turn into an Adventure geek!
That's the plan! We have to take care for future generations of adventure players and get them hooked on before they get distracted by other genres ;)

using LaTeX!
Awww, and I tried so hard to hide that fact and make it NOT look like a scientific paper :P


Anyway, I'm currently working on Version 1.1, which will contain a few fixes and also a German translation.

The walking on gravel sound effect in the fairground goes off and on at random times, but other than that, the game is flufftastic.

I completed this game in about 30 minutes.

I enjoyed the graphics and smooth animation. The music was appropriate and contributed to the atmosphere. I liked the simplicity, which will appeal to a broad range of players. The puzzles were fun and not difficult or frustrating and as other posters have noted, are a great entry point for beginning adventurers. The balloon/footprint hunt game was cute and added to the variety in this game.

I have to point out one thing:
I assume it was deliberate that the "red herring" was a reference to the moped puzzle
. If so, VERY clever!!

By the way, your avatar sure looks a lot like Maureen!

A bit of spelling correction would make the game a bit more polished but otherwise the game is a great achievement.

Bravo!
