If I may ask, while I reaaally love this game, I didn't quite get the motivation of trying to

cure/remove the curse by letting it work faster

Still, game has nice ideas and a good atmosphere.

That was a sweet game!
I like those gesture magic system, like the one Arx Fatalis, even if this implementation is very basic.
Some elements of the graphics look like untextured polygons or vectors were used, the rocks for example. I really liked the simplicity and the colors of it.
The puzzles weren't any trouble of course since the magic system was so basic, but overall this was sweet and in no way a "waste of time". I think this rat should shut its mouth. ;)

Well, of course it's short since it only consists of one room. But you have to look for a hotspot that isn't you, the rat or the woman. :)

I'm not too sure myself.

I guess I was thinking that when nature doesn't change with the seasons, the princess does. When nature is changing, the princess doesn't.
I hope that makes some sort of since.

It sounds like your stuck or don't understand the controls. You could listen to the rat some more, or ask for hints on the forums.

Thanks for the interest everyone

It was a pretty decent experience. I do feel a bit forced upon by the story's depth as it felt a bit unnecessary to string me along a love-story where there is a big lack of playtime in which to pull me through.

I found the gesture system interesting and I played the game as a ghost.

You know you can get the Wizard's name before you ask what it is?

I'm guessing I have to do something with my magic wand but everytime I use it I get the same message about him needing to learn to keep his arm steady. I'm guessing I need to use my magic wand on the stormclouds but nothing happens except getting the same message about keeping my arm steady.

I liked the idea and style of this game, and enjoyed playing through it.

One thing that really hurt the experience for me was the spelling and grammar errors throughout the game. It could really benefit from some proofreading.

Anyway, good job making the game and trying out some interesting (if simple) gameplay ideas with the gesture system!

I was thinking that it would be a fun job to add voice acting to this game since the majority of it is dialog.
There are three parts ranging from 150 to 60 lines.

If your interested, send me a personal message. If I don't get any responses, I'll assume it's not worth the effort.  :)

Voices are added to the game and many grammatical errors are now fixed.

theRoger: Thank you for your work. Your accent makes Occlude a very fun character. Can't wait to hear more.
Que: Your voice for Morgan made me think of my character in a different light. Very fun to work with you. Keep doing this.
Rob: You have a very dynamic and unique voice that was exactly what I imagined for the part. I couldn't think of it being done any better. Well done.

Hello,

This is the first AGS game that I have played so far. I was told about this game by Que who was the voice for Morganatic. After playing the game for some time, I will say that I like the voice acting. The rat's sarcasm is funny. ;D I will admit that I have a fascination with stories where a charming guy has to save a good woman from some type of calamity.

However, I am stuck and I am not sure what I am supposed to do with the wand. I mainly hear him say "no effect" or "I need to improve." ???

@Turtiathan: Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the game. Have you talked to the rat about everything yet? If you have more questions, you should post them in the hints forum. Hope you finish it!
