Veil of Darkness (MS-DOS)
Oh, I just noticed the severed head on his wall. Very nice.
It's really awkward to get the character to move using the keyboard. I switched to mouse but he's still a little stiff.
Not that I'm certain I actually searched everything I meant to search. That damn 'Nothing to take' message sticks, so I can't be certain I actually clicked on the thing correctly. The same thing happens with the 'there is nothing behind this door' messages too.
Oh I see, that means the word is added to a list of things I can ask about in the conversation.
It's a shame I can't actually ASK anyone where Eduard lives. My conversation options are sadly pretty limited.
I think I'm formulating a theory. My theory is that if he's dead, no one will mind if I steal his stuff.
He says it's the only way I'll ever escape this place.
My plane is nowhere around, but this guy knows which way it was taken. Unfortunately he was turned into a tree, and wants me to do something for him. So now I've got to go and figure out how to 'free' him.
But I'm getting nowhere in my hunt for a cure for poor tree-guy. I haven't found anyone I'm allowed to ask about a cure, or anything I could maybe use on him, and I just can't be bothered looking any more. Because I get the feeling the whole game is going to be like this. "Hey stranger I have a problem, help me... also good luck stumbling around every building in the game trying to find any clues about what you have to do!".
