Conclusion:
I've not had time to play todays game yet, but Gamezebo concluded that the game had an Intriguing story with a lot of twists. Great artwork and some very creative scene settings. The negatives included poor voice acting and so so mini games. (see link to reference above)

:-( After half an hour download ran setup wich trying to activate complained "Failed to Launch Program". :-( It is now past 1am and I am going to bed dissapointed. I closed down Avast and deleted its secure browser on my XP laptop to no avail.

Nice one. Windows 10 x64 Pro. No issues yet. Play casual or expert. Ran bit of casual and nice graphics, story, mix of usual style of puzzles but bit added flair this time. Pain in butt to find arrow in one of the HOG parts but hint button works well on that tricky one. Expected an actual object vs what they used, lol. Thanks guys worth playing into the even color moments when winter finally hits.

Does not work..
Setup started and i get:

The key cannot be decrypted

Hrrrrr... nice to see if it will be fixed until giveaway is over...

---,

The message you received usually implies that your security is blocking the installation due to the Themida wrapper. It does mention this in the read me. There are three things you can do that usually solve the issue:

1) ... turn off your security temporarily, install then turn your security back on

2) ... white list the giveaway files with your security

3) ... reboot in safe mode with networking, install, then reboot as normal.

Like others here, very much looking forward to playing this! I've played some TooMky Games before and they were always enjoyable.

Many thanks to TooMky and GGOTD for bringing us today's game,

As we are here to pass on our comments and suggestions for improvements to games developers, I'd like to repeat something I've said here before, and it applies to today's game as well. Please please don't leave the names of files you're installing as 'spoilers' e.g. WizardCauldron-12.flv or SurpriseEnding-a-14.ogg or similar things. With my developer hat on, there are enough tools around nowadays 'randomise' such names to something like S512.flv or S47A14.ogg, to use my examples above.

This matters to me because I am sad enough to watch install programs while they work, and I hate spoilers, so to find they rushing by as all the files are installed is very annoying! If I notice 'spoiler' file names during an install, I'll literally drag another window over it to conceal the names. Or, am I the only person who watches installers as they work? Or is it just I'm the only one irritated by 'file name spoilers?

Please let me know what you all think about this. :)

Cad Delworth, I am guilty as charge. Plus I open up the folders and such..at times.

I already have this on Steam. Think I paid 59 cents or such. A friend on mine has written a well thought out review. I don't think there are any spoilers but she does give you a "Heads up" to keep an eye out for certain things as they are very "missable"...

Installed OK on Windows 10 64-bit home edition, I didn't have time to play long but it looks promising. I'm disappointed not to play in Windowed mode (it doesn't seem to be available) but interestingly if you want you can select from a number of window sizes, some of which may allow you to see a portion of your desktop. I don't know how useful that is since I am not availing myself of them. You can select the system cursor, which I always do since I'm used to it and usually ornate cursors don't work well for me. Game options include a relaxed mode that I favor, and the more strict mode that I don't...I like mysterious HOGs so as time allows, looks like one I will complete. There seems to be a built-in walkthrough if one has any problems and of course there is a bonus chapter after you finish the main game. Visibility seems OK so far, not outstandingly, but should work for most people.

Excited to finally see what (to me) was a new GGOTD in my favorite adventure/HOG/puzzle genre! So far, it's playing fine after a smooth install, though I do want to mention that it did open a Toomy window in addition to the usual MPC one, since there was some discussion about this, and also that it only has a game.exe rather than also having an engine.exe (by clicking that instead of game.exe I can usually bypass the extraneous windows opening.) I also like that after just a short time, a map is provided (there's also a strategy guide if you get stuck). So far on the downside, this is another one where you can't just click through dialog; I read faster than they talk, so if I can just click to the next screen it saves a lot of time and boredom. Instead you have to either sit through their droning spoken dialog or click Skip and miss out on interesting (to me) plot points. But so far, a happy thumbs up and thanks for a newer game!

Just a heads up in general. Some of the links you give cannot be accessed because of them being hosted by caiman.us. Where I am blocks this as it thinks it is gambling.

The easiest solution for me is to just use the Opera browser.

Incidentally you might like this WhiteRabbit...the same software is blocking even the Sun newspaper in Britain, giving the reason "swimsuits".

André Uwe Dürner,

You can also get it free from TooMkyGames. The difference between the TooMky Games and the giveaways are that the adverts have been disabled. Not sure about MyReal Games, never downloaded from them. Do they have the same additions as TooMky and MyPlayCity games i.e. browser openings when the games are closed and adverts at the beginning while the game is loading?

Whiterabbit-uk, yes, a short intro from myrealgames ~ 1-2 seconds and after quit the opening from the website

André Uwe Dürner, what i forgot
Sometimes opens a little Window with a few Games, but it didn´t took that much time as MPC uses for the "Commercial Break"
This Window could be closed also directly after the appearing

Getting a strong sense of deja vu here. Like a game a few weeks ago this has a hidden object screen where you cannot select anything.

Anyone else running into this? Workaround?

Reply   |   Comment by Rune  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Never mind. It is a reverse hidden object. D'oh!

Reply   |   Comment by Rune  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Rune, this is not a mistake, but a different kind of game: If you find clearly drawn objects in the list (and not just outlines or shadows), it means that you have to find associations, such as the stamp belongs to the letter, the egg matches the chicken, etc.

Rune,

Hi Rune, it may be that the collision mesh that allows you to select items from the HOG scene is not aligned in the resolution you normally use. Try changing the screen resolution temporarily to see if it fixes the issue. Alternatively go into properties (right click menu) and select the compatibility tab. Make sure the admin tick box is checked and disable full screen optimisations. If that doesn't work click on the Change high DPI settings. This gives you two alternatives either check the Program DPI check box or the High DPI Scaling override. If you choose the latter make sure its for the application and not the system.

Peter,

Thanks for helping Peter, appreciated. :)

Rune, yes I had the same problem. I believe that you are talking about 'Forbidden Secrets, Alien Town'. Nothing is outlined, just a list of objects with nowhere to put them. After much frustration I stumbled on the answer, it was so simple. If the instructions say "Lift to use", you must take one and find an object that needs it. For example, pick up a candle and find a candle holder to put it in, or pick up a doll's head and find a headless doll. I hope you didn't delete the game!

Looking forward to playing this, the reviews are very positive. The game was released in 2015 - so it's fairly new.
