takes ages to load - gets to 100% quickly once and then starts again from 0% and won't load. Anyone else had the same problem?

A very interesting time playing wind spirit. Nice mouse control.

Caroline said...

So, I did not play the demo version because I already own this game :) This game (like most Amanita games) is beautiful and fantastic. Thank you for sharing one of my favorite games with everyone else, Bart!

Was this by the same people that did Machinarium? It looks vaguely familiar...

Is there another link...load time is way too long

I thought the demo was really good, is it worth buying?

Peter said...

I have the full game, and getting that is worth the money. And the demo loaded fast enough for me.

-LIZ- said...

thanks for the 2 cents on the full game. I was really thinking about buying it, but debating. Now I'm going to! And

@ Anonymous 17:03, yes same people that did Machinarium

-LIZ- said...

Speaking of, does anyone own the full version of Machinarium? Got an opinion you'd like to share?

interetsting game-visually beautiful and interesting. also very creative. load time was not so bad for me....
think i clicked on everything. full game seems like it would be interesting.

@ LIZ:

I own all of the full length Amanita games. Up until Botanicula, Machinarium was my favorite game that I own. They are both excellent games and (IMO) worth owning :)
Also, for those that enjoyed this, check out the Amanita site here: http://amanita-design.net/games/botanicula.html#kotva they have desktop wallpaper from this game for free (scroll to the bottom of the page)!

LIZ: Machinarium is awesome.

i think its boring, but its so beautifull!

emm ohh said...

so slow to load, much too slow :(

Not as good as Machinarium (Ihaveit). Disappointment to me. I was hoping that I could purchase this, but no, I´m not. Too simple point and click without a good storyline...

So, it took forever to load, so I read through all of the comments. Twice. It was a very cute game and all, but I was really confused. What was going on?

Anonymous said...

So beautiful... I waited For it to load for ages, but it was so worth it. I also think I will get the full version, even though it is a bit boring and I have know idea what is going on, I love it. Highly recommend it for therapy... Just the loading page was relaxing.
