It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

Where's the commentary? It seems as if you played with commentary in mind, giving appropriate pauses to be able to say something, but the commentary isn't there, only the in-game audio... at least in the first five minutes which I actually watched.

Or is it just a "playthrough" recording and the commentary wasn't there in the first place?

Good question indeed. I hesitated a lot, but i started as a "blind" playthrough of the game, with no commentary.

First, i didn't had any microphone, but now that i have one, i think i'll add my comments.

Should it be in english with my awful accent ? Or in french but you don't understand ? I might do the two versions :D

And it's true, it could have been a recording bug xD

Anyway, i have a solution to fix the commentary problem for the 2 first parts (there will be no click mouse or keyboard sounds, but it doesn't matter :D), and when it will be done, i will release them as new videos on my youtube account.

edit : the microphone doesn't work. I'll stick with the no commentary mode until the end.

edit 2 : omg i used the rewind button. the new area is so... so gloomy that i had to do a break :D

Well, since we’re all here to suffer, is anybody up for an exchange of informations :twisted: ?

I solved the puzzle related to the dates/stars and forwarded the one related to the paintings. But I’m missing one lock and I don’t even understand where/what the third puzzle is (if it’s here at all). :oops:

If someone knows what is related to the third puzzle or if I’m compelled to go to hell to continue the game, it’d be much appreciated. In exchange (or even if you don't know, I'm not that self-interested :) ), I can give you hints about the dates/stars puzzle or describe how I solved it.

i know... right ? But when i'll have time to find one which work, i'll have to test, adjust the setting, and by that time, i would have probably done 30 or 40 parts.

I will do it for your next game, i promise.

Wow nice ! I was trying to slove the painting puzzle, with no success. So about the stars/dates, could you sent me a pm with an hint ? I'll try to give some stuff i think I found about the paintings. But since i'm not sure i don't want to give you false information ;)

edit @9:55PM GMT+1 : i'm going crazy !!! i'm completely lost in the "rewind world" ! I don't know what to do, i don't know what to do. I'm going crazy, the music is stressful, i don't know what to do, i try to die over and over again, but i am caged in this world. I tried to brute-force one puzzle, but it doesn't work. I don't know what to do, what to do ? I want to hear the clock ticking again. Yes, again ! I want the tick, tock. In the clock. Before i got locked. In short.

Speaking of hell, I get a traceback error whenever I quit from hell, but still hear the main menu music.

Oh no... Can you tell me which variable it claims is undefined/which list it claims is out of index? That's usually what these tracebacks are about.

By the way, I am not confirming that I may or may not be telling you that quite possibly I might be decieving you when I don't officially awknowledge that it is, in fact, not Hell.

What? Why would Mediafire be blocked? Where do you live?
Maybe you could use a proxy... In the meantime, I will see if I can find an alternative hosting place.

Hooray. I'm excited to see this out :mrgreen:. I don't know when I'll have time to play it but I'll download it and try to make time (I probably won't have a chance until late next week though ;o;).

OMG i am traumatized from the 'gloomy' place. I was trying to solve the piano puzzle, until something ultra wierd happened.

I'm currently under the shock. Yeah, really. The part 5 will stay offline or will be edited (i don't know yet).

That kind of madness should stay a surprise.

Greeny, i'm going to disappoint you, but the puzzles are a lot harder than the ones in "The Loop". And I havn't found any skippable, that's really annoying. Are you sure the forward mode is functional ?

Anyway, part 3 is online : http://dai.ly/x16gh8g

You're playing on the normal difficulty, meaning not all puzzles are skippable. Only the ones flagged as "hard".
