As for many indie games, the shots I captured (Direct3D/Glide function) barely look like what is actually on the screen. The game looks rubbish here, but it's a pearl when playing it. A lot of games seems to use an additional software renderer that does not get included in the captures, no matter what I try...
Don't worry about it. The screenshots look fine to me, even after playing the game. Plus, your screenshots (and the fact that there's now a mini preview of 'em on the front page of the site) made me download the demo!
Pity I got completely stuck in the second room? What do you do after talking to your father?
Thanks! I'll try it again. Btw, I think we have a similar taste in games - Didn't I see you at the Pathologic forums? :)
And a random question I've been meaning to ask: Where does your user icon come from? That's a great looking painting(?).
That's a really odd rice paddy field. No water.
Hmm, it really looks like a painting. It also seems rather creepy, though the movie doesn't sound like that at all. Anyway, interesting, thanks.
Oh no, not creepy to me at all; the colors are beautiful, and I kept wondering what book she was reading. Movie sounds surrealistic, I would call it magical realism, I guess (Like One Hundred Years of Solitude, though I may only be connecting the two because of the tail business :-)).

I love that book! And ah yes, the cursed tails :D
He he! Remedios the Beauty has to be my favorite character - she still comes to mind sometimes when I'm doing laundry (though I don't hang it outside any more) - Remedios rising up into the sky with the sheets flapping....

Hehe :) I find it amazingly hard to pick a favourite character, but you have to love Jose Arcadio Buendia, who along with Ursula Iguaran, started the whole crazy thing. What a book... I haven't read anything else by Gabriel Garcia Marquez yet, though I have Of Love And Other Demons sitting on my shelf.
I don't like this book. What's so great about it? There's no real story and all the characters are twisted in a boring way.
I only enjoyed the part where one of those Buendias put a beer mug on his penis.
Or something like that. Pardon my language, please.
Is it the one who ate earth?
It's been a while, I read this thing 12 years ago.

Yes I think I remember Remedios ate earth. And José Arcadio 2, he he, I don't particularly remember the beer mug but I do remember what he was well-known for! And - there is a story; it's ostensibly a history of the Buendias and Macondo, the town - I didn't read it as the allegory it is supposed to be. Just like games; we like what we like for our own personal reasons. For me, the book took me away into a place full of unexpectedness. Unexpectedness is what I particularly like in books, in games, in people, in art, in humor..not everyone's cup of tea.
BTW, how off-topic are we now? :-) My fault, sorry!
LOL :) No, the book is cool and all, and I loved it while I was reading... but after I finished it, I never came back. It was a one-time experience just because of its unusual style, so what I felt were effects instead of real depth. A real classic for me is a book I can re-read a million times and it's still interesting.
