Back to the Cloudcolony

Recommended Posts

Don't know if this is really a bug but after reaching the temple with Vella, you can backtrack all the way up to the Cloud Colony.

At first, I thought "Hey cool, maybe they've hidden a few funny gags up there. Or maybe I have to go up in order to solve the puzzle I'm currently on." But then, when I had browsed all the empty dialog trees (or, well, without any new lines), I realized that this was just wasted play-time.

Maybe it's fixed by now – I haven't played it for three or more days. … Or maybe it's intended?

Btw, on the subject of dialog trees: it happened to me several times that I wanted to pick the top-most choice/answer but missed it by a few pixels which the game registered as an exit click, so the conversation often ended prematurely. I found that quite annoying. There should be more neutral space between answer #1 and the exit area.

There is a reason why you can climb up to the cloud colony. Have you met with the Dead Eye God yet?

Also, your cursor should turn into an X when it hovers above the exit area in a dialog tree. Otherwise, you might have experienced a bug and should report it.

(SPOILER:)

If you don't pick up the peach when you first visit Meriloft (cloud colony) you'd have to backtrack there and get it. That's the reason that returning there is possible.

More spoilers: The odds that someone won't head up there for act 2 is really low.

I didn't have a peach (I couldn't figure out how to get the fruit, I kept trying to find an item that would let me grab it as it fell). That puzzle was one of the hardest for me for that reason.

Also, if you give it to Curtis, you'll need another one :)

I see. Didn't realize that you could reach the temple without having the peach. … How odd to keep a past "grand area" activated entirely just for one item. I admit that F'ther's line(s) when you first return made me chuckle but I think his lines are the only ones that change.

Yes, I've finished the game.

And the dialog-exiting thing: yeah sure, the cursor changes. But … irrelephant! I'm a fast clicker when I'm enjoying a game. And this ruins my enjoyment. Especially when I know that this could be fixed with a minor tweak.
