Its an interesting game but definitely not without some concerns that let the game down.
The ideas is good and at the start its quite entertaining, but after a few hours of wandering around trying to figure out what your meant to be doing it get a little tedious.
Our lead character stumbles around lost, so weak he can't carry more than three flowers and any hill or bump greater than 10degrees will sent him into a tail spin.
He can only carry one item like a knife or axe, at a time and half the time he'll randomly drop it or throw it away anyway. No big deal really because they don't seem to be of any use bsides waving around when the bunyip monkey monster comes around. You can't actually attack anthing.
The biggest let downs IMO is the issues with the day night cycles and the so called mapping.
Both these things in particular turn a slow paced novel game into a boring frustrating slow paced game.
It seems to be night for a far greater time than day, and in the dark you are literally in total blackness. Even using torches etc are near useless so the only thing you can do is wait. And wait and wait and wait, until daylight slowly comes. Even during the day, it can all of a sudden become near total darkness because its getting cloudy, or its an eclipse or whatever reason.
At night you occasionaly run into the bunyip monkey monster that come at you, sends your heart rate faster and faster and most of the time you just run and hope! I
get the feeling this "monster" was put in as a last minute item to try and add some sense of fear. You can't seem to kill it or anything and seems out of place, especially considering theres no other living creatures besides some bugs and birds in the distance.
The mapping system is the second let down. its a good idea where you need to triangulate points from known landmarks etc but is a long, tedious and frustrating affair. 90 percent of the game is simply trying to work out where you are and where your going. Trying to make a map, 1 small section at a time.
The game isn't all bad as such, but is definitely not suited for everybody.
I quite enjoyed it at the start and the collection of plants etc to make medicine etc is a neat idea. Unfortunately that is all it has. Besides drinking, and taking medicine, then thats it for gneral survival. You don't have to eat, or hunt, or build shelters. Even sleep is just a way to speed through the night if your lucky enough to be near a bed when night falls, and to save your game.
Its the sort of game where every now and then I'll probably have a bit of a tinker with it, but its definately not the sort of game I'd recomend to anyone looking for thrills, excitement and adventure etc.
