Skipping the parts I've already played?

Recommended Posts

My one and only grief about this game. because i think it is a great game.

-Is it possible to skip the non character specific levels? Like the mining level.

I completed the game yesterday and today i want to try with some new characters. I don't think there is enough difference in the puzzle solving/gameplay to justify going through the same level i went through yesterday.

So how do i get to the character specific levels without sitting through the parts I've already played?

Spoilers: You can skip the Zoo by bringing an extra hot dog or using the Monks telekinesis on the hot dog machine. I've been trying not to cause the cave-in but nothing so far.

In terms of the way the game is designed...

The railroad that would continue the Cave Tour wouldn't have a way to break and crack without the Cave Miner adventure.

Sometimes one must just accept a game the way it exists. Bug or graphical issue complaints I understand... the game not allowing you something that would construe them actually rebuilding the game from scratch though?

It would be a nice option to be able to just play the sections we wanted to play, but I just don't think it was something they considered.

You can't usually do so in an adventure game unless you created a save game at just that point. Even then though, it can be a headache.

I understand that they were under time constraints, but a I'd say another 4-5 puzzle areas like the Prospector, Hermit and Hunter all randomised so you don't know which three you'll get on a playthrough would've been a good way to go. People would've been playing it through many, many times trying to see them all, and it means it wouldn't just be a case of sleepwalking through those areas once you've done them once.

I'd also like to have seen non-obvious ways to finish the character areas in a 'good' way, ie. In the Knight's area, using the Monk or Time Traveller to get the dragon treasure without unlocking the gate, but I appreciate that's more a character arc choice than a game design one.

I'm hoping for a sequel or 'expanded' version at any rate.

Personally I'd prefer if it took 10 times longer to beat The Cave, I'm just trying to find different ways of solving it.
