This game really looks beautiful.  I'll do my best to find some time to play it...

Sorry, does the game actually need 1.4GB to install out of a 100MB download or is my installer screwing up somewhere!? Because that is what it's telling me!

Don't get me wrong...the game looks beautiful and I want to play it, but with my crappy computer I just can't afford 1.4GB of disk space taken up by it...

It kinda blew my mind that a 100MB download could require that much space to install...Am I making some huge misconception here by doing something wrong?

It's indeed 1.4GB. AGS has the option to compress the sprites, so maybe the game was compiled without sprite compression? In this case it should be possible to recompile the game with sprite compression, which wouldn't make a difference for the installer and .zip file, but it should make the installed game considerably smaller.

Problem is correct... I hadn't put on the sprite compression (Sorry!), I'm working on it now and will have the updated (smaller) version up as soon as possible

Update: The installer version (99mb) is updated and the intalled file size should be about 189mb now, very sorry about the mistake and I hope you enjoy the game :)

Update 2: Zip version updated too

Thanks for the awesome game!

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
The conversations with the Gods were a LOT of fun!!! Very Monty Pythonesque and humourous without getting annoying. Would love to play it with good voice acting!

Great stuff! Now I have to go play Witchy Woo to get a certain reference retroactivly...

Ahh I was just coming to post that the game is running [like waaaaaay] too slowly on my machine. I guess it's related to the file size issue mentioned above (I downloaded it last week, so I'll try downloading the new version and see if it runs any quicker).

I've just finished the game and here are some of my thoughts:
The highest quality graphics in AGS game I've ever seen. You guys did an amazing work in graphics department, like professionals. There were even cutscenes! :shocked:
On the other side, the puzzles weren't the greatest: it required a lot of walking through all the backgrounds and was tedious.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I've spent around 15 minutes looking for something to grind the cooked berries, until I've found the rock in the cave; whilst there was one more rock next to the hole in the temple, which wasn't a hotspot nor an object and I desperately tried to somehow use the broken foot of the broken foot of the statue for grinding! :grin:
I suggest you to make it possible to quickly move the character by double left clicking, or just make the character move faster for your future games, so that the walking around would be less tedious.
Otherwise, great looking game, we need more of these, since they prove how AGS can be used for higher screen resolution/gfx quality games!   :)
