Looks like still way more game than 99% of people are going to see, even minus the KS stuff. I'm glad this one is going to available in some form, as I've heard it's real neat and the scalping is in full effect currently.

We played the first curse and lost. I haven’t made up my mind about it yet. It’s interesting, but it didn’t feel exciting. Like, I didn’t care that we lost.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of @tk342 I'll be able to form my own opinion shortly, but I'm just generally for games being available and the thwarting of eBay scalpers.

It definitely has a very laid back, cerebral Myst vibe. To me, the gradual learning of the map feels much more calculated than the risky atmosphere of a choose-your-adventure novel (this game’s DNA). The initial effect of its unveiling with cards feels novel & mysterious but it doesn’t take long for the abstractions to become more prominent, which insulates any kind of emotional investment in the exploration & atmosphere. It’s a strange shift that the game undergoes with repeated plays.

@Frohike,

Yes that's it!!!

I will have to play it some more to find out if the hand management challenge and the puzzle presented be interesting enough for me, personally.
