I feel like something's missing. A lot of the game works wonderfully as I expected: humor, dialogue, art and music. They're all fantastic, but what I was not expecting is how shallow the game would be gameplay-wise. We were promised and oldskool PnC adventure. This is more like "my first PnC". I want to get stuck in these games, I want a large inventory, I want more locations and more options. The simplification of the interface is one thing (I'm not a fan personally, but I can let that one pass), but simplification of the puzzles is just a major offense. This was supposed to be for oldskool fans, but they made it for modern, casual audiences.
I'm absolutely not saying I dislike the game or feel my $250 donation is wasted, but I'm just disappointed that (so far) the game just isn't what was promised. Very much looking forward to act 2, maybe it'll come into its own then and my complaints will be dissipated.
