Nice little Tux in the top left corner right at the beginning!

I wishlisted this when I played the demo the first time around. It seems to capture the spirit of Broken Sword very well. Maybe Lithuania in the spring will be as intriguing as Paris in the fall?

Kinda reminds me of the Jack Keane games, but perhaps it's because of the 3D character models. Like the painted backgrounds, though. I guess I'll have to wishlist ...
