I'm about three hours into it now - superb presentation, very story-driven. Object interaction is a little bit hit-or-miss, but voice acting is top-drawer and the atmosphere is off the charts. Enjoying it immensely.

Is it possible to switch to a first person view? I hate this kind of offset third person camera, makes it hard to move/target things, on top of course of the character hiding a quarter of the screen.

Update: I've now been sent a key. Although it was invalid, so I'm waiting for another.

Didn't know about the Linux version! Very nice! I'll take a look at this.

I bet in the year 2048 it will be even more so, but it is sadly already true today. :/

Sadly, no. Not that I have found. And yes, the targeting is a bit negatively impacted by exactly that problem. It's not gotten in the way too much though. As a style choice, I get why they went over-the-shoulder, but like you, I prefer first-person for all such games.

Too bad, but thanks for the info!

I'll wait a couple days for reviews to say it's not horribly broken, and then it's looking very much like I'll soon have another game to play (probably via GOG, which is nice). Then just to find time to play it.

They're really supportive there and maybe now they have time to look into my patches for their first Edna and Harvey installment to maks it run on Linux natively (they told me they had something "big" to release first) :p
