I submitted Comment #9 yesterday (Monday) morning at 1:15 AM, not 5:15 AM as shown below. It is now 9:30 AM EDT I am still waiting for a reply. I hope someone at GOTD reads these & takes appropriate action.

Hi Steve, I usually moderate, but have been absent for several weeks due to family illness; sadly my father passed away last week and I have a funeral to attend later today, so I haven't had much time to answer any queries. There is a FAQ's thread over in the forums that addresses this issue. It's usually caused by your security software. There are three things you can do, the simplest is to temporarily turn off your security until the game is installed, the second is to reboot in safe mode with networking and the third is to whitelist the giveaway files. The cause is a Themida wrapper, which was introduced about 4 years ago to stop hackers from ripping off the games .exe files. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide (wrap) malware, so some anti-malware suites as a matter, of course, will block anything with Themida code included. There is a note in the readme that discusses this briefly.

HI!

Condolences for you and yours White Rabbit!

The game downloaded quickly and opened easily. The game appears to be a simple HOG. Game play is easy,
though you do have to spend time figuring some of the things out! It appears purposely dark in areas, so
if you click a lot looking for items you lose points and do not how that affects rest of game. I might bring a little mor color into the game. Thank for another good game and have a good week all, Lee

When I try to install it a pop-up says "Failed to connect. Please try again later." It's now bedtime! How can I get this game (after a night's sleep)?

It's an interesting game and pleasant to look at.
I like that the help button recharges quickly. There doesn't seem to be a penalty for excess clicking - good! I hate being punished by a game.
Some items were almost impossible to see even after I clicked the help button. Some are so dark and hidden that I almost couldn't see them even after being told exactly where they were.

I'm stuck now where I'm to find a target. I found the target right away but it's missing a part. The help button shows me the target but doesn't show the piece that has to go on the target. I may have to look for a walk-through just for that one item.

I'm taking a break now to let my eyes rest. I like this game.

Game installed fine on Windows 10 Home Edition, 64 bit. The game seems to be untimed, but there is a points system that penalizes you if you use the hints. I don't know what happens if you use up all your points, whether or not there is a "rescue" scheme or if you just have to blunder through. There is a walkthru and hints at www.bigfishgames.com/blog/walkthrough/letters-from-nowhere-walkthrough/ which will probably render the problem moot for those who use it. It's a little hard to see details in windowed mode, so I will probably play the rest of it full screen. I like that you can turn off the in-game cursor if you don't like it and want to use the system cursor. A nice, relaxing mystery story that I think will be interesting to play.

Do you know what happened to whiterabbit?

Petr, Whiterabbit's family are dealing with serious health problems just now, and he simply doesn't have the time to come in here every weekend to moderate. Family troubles come first, as I'm sure you will understand. We're all hoping for the best of results, and sending good wishes his way.

Thank you Basilica, sadly my father passed away earlier in the week. Also my aunt a few days later. That's all the family in the generation above me from my father's side of the family. I don't see the rest of my aunts and uncle from my mother's side. They live in Australia. It feels really strange. All I've done for the past year since my uncle passed is search out family photos and I've been editing thousands of feet of family cine film, which I'm going to have scanned, then distribute amongst my brother, sister, and cousins. My grandfather was a close associate of Sam Hannah, the inventor and film archivist, so I was introduced to photography and film when I was really young via his workshop and darkroom.

Basilica, God bless him, I wish his family good health!

Whiterabbit - I am deeply sorry for you loss - please accept my condolences - I wish you and your family the time to grieve and heal.

I love old photogaph but my family tends to throw away everything. My mom threw away a lot of stuff when my father died despite my sister's and my begging we would help to clean out his flat (they were seperated when he died).

Reply   |   Comment by Anu  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

So sorry to hear of your loss, Whiterabbit. We lost four members of the family, including my mother, plus about a dozen friends within one year, so I know how you're feeling. You have my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences.

I hope your father had the same kind of wonderful care in his last weeks as Mum had, and that his passing was calm and free from distress. He is at peace now. No more pain, no more fear.

The photos will be a wonderful source of memories for you, and tug at your heartstrings as you go through them. Take your time over them, and give yourself time to mourn and to begin to heal.

God Bless.

Pretty nice HOG. So far it seems simple (in the sense that it's basically straightforward HOG with the occasional mini-game) but not easy (some items are appropriately difficult to find, and unlike most games of this type, items that need something done to them (i.e. combining items) are not marked as such). My pet peeve so far is that when I was doing the police station, I found all the objects before I found all the stamps and the scene automatically stops and you can't go back; if I'd known, I'd have found the stamps first, which is what I do now.

Overall, so far worth installing, although enjoying yesterday's a bit more, and happy to see a second HOG/puzzle/adventure (light on the adventure) this weekend.

neme, Hi .
I think that the police station is at the start of the game ,
so you can create a new player and play the game from
the start .

It's an OK hidden object game, but I've played better ones.

Letters from Nowhere is divided into easy-to-digest chapters, each sectioned into episodes filled with items to find. Click on a photo to enter the scene and use the item lists at the bottom to locate what you need in each area. Hints are available through a quickly-recharging timer, and if you click too many times without finding something, you'll get a hefty score penalty.

Some items in Letters from Nowhere must be "assembled" before you can collect them. This usually involves finding a missing piece and inserting it into the named object. So, for example, if you want to get the gun, you'll need to put a few bullets in the chamber first. You'll also encounter items that initiate instant mini-games, though these are rare. And, finally, keep an eye out for hidden stamps in each area. Find them all to unlock the Unlimited Mode at the end of the game!

While it doesn't attempt to fiddle with the hidden object formula too much, Letters from Nowhere features a bonus system that really is a marvelous addition. For every chapter of the game, you'll earn points that go towards unlocking these bonuses. The first prize, for example, is a thermometer. Use it and a thermometer will stash itself in every episode of a chapter. Find it in each scene and your cursor immediately becomes a hot/cold detector, alerting you when you're near an item you need to click. The unlockables don't last forever, unfortunately, but they shake things up and push the game along at just the right time.

Letters from Nowhere Analysis: Most hidden object titles try to attach gameplay tricks, storyline twists, and mini-games onto the core of the game like some sort of mad scientist. Really, all you need is good artwork, an interesting storyline, and unapologetically straightforward gameplay to capture an audience, something Letters from Nowhere is keenly aware of. From the title screen to the design of the loading screens, you can see how much care was put into the atmosphere of this release.

Letters from Nowhere is designed to tug at your emotions as well as provide some actual hidden object challenge. From the color palette to the soft music, you won't expect jumping clowns or flying confetti to hop out of any corner. If you're sitting inside on a rainy day with a Slanket, a cup of hot cocoa, and a slow Tchaikovsky violin concerto playing in the background, you've set the mood for this game. And as for finding the objects, Letters from Nowhere employs a smart stashing system that hides items without making them unfairly impossible to locate.

It's also worth noting that Letters from Nowhere features a strong achievements system in the form of trophies. There are over 35 trophies to unlock, each obtained by accomplishing a different feat you may not even realize you're working towards! Always a good excuse to find hidden objects with finesse.

Hi
No instructions given for items which task need to be done in order to obtain the items.
The minus of marks when using the find item{ hint} how does this work?

Reply   |   Comment by Mohan  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Mohan, in the «cellar» you have to move the head of the doll (on the most right-handed rack) to its body (marked on the floor) to connect them.
It's a pity that the second of these objects are not marked!
