Won, Best Puzzles 2011
Nominated, Best Original Story 2011
IMO the dialogues are superb. I didn't get bored a single time and they really manage to shape character personalities in a matter of seconds.
Puzzles are very good, although in part a little circumstantial.
If Graphics/GUIs/Controls would be redone (it mostly uses AGS' standard built in's) this could easily be a great commercial game.
This game takes quite some time to complete because of the puzzles and exciting story. If you want to play a full length game with fantastic immersion and clever old-school puzzles this is the game for you.
But, nice sequence of events, good characters, fun puzzles. Looking forward to part 2!
Putting aside some minor letdowns (like forced puzzles and hard to guess solutions), TFCOTW succeeds in pulling you into its game environment. A brilliant example that graphics aren't everything.
