I've played it. I liked the unusual graphics and sound effects, though the puzzles were pretty frustrating at times. In fact, there is one optional puzzle that even the Woodruff Universal Hint System file doesn't answer correctly: looking behind the Bigwig's portrait. It tells the player that the only way to look behind it is to get into the Schnibble sect, but this is incorrect.

I've figured out how to get up to the portrait -- has anyone else?

Wow, it's been way too long, since I played this game :D
I absolutely loved the crazy world and spent many hours trying to figure it out.

Do you mean levitation? Using maybe the kite?

Yes, you have to use your levitation power to reach the portrait, but you have to use it in combination with something else to succeed (not the kite, though you're on the right track).

I have made a spoiler tag that you can now use for any potential spoilers.

Ok, I have to ask - does this spoiler really works the way it's supposed to through ALL styles?? :D
It may work on the Black Pearl, but certainly not on the one I'm using... ;)

Edit:
Arrgh, I was actually going to post here, that tomorrow I think I'm gonna fire up this game again.

Good point. I didn't check other styles. I'll look into it later.

Alright, I give in - what is it? :D
Also, did you try it yourself - because using strong wind from weatherreport is not doing it for me.
If it IS the way to do it, then I'd like to know, exactly WHERE do I stand next to the cross?

You've just about got it. You just have to use the levitation power on the cross (at least, that's what worked for me). It took me a few tries, but that was what seemed to work.

Done playing it - what a great game. :P

You're welcome. One obscure game mystery (that nobody really ever noticed) solved.

You are SO in for a treat! :mrgreen: Where'd you get it from?

Edit:
Woohooo, my new plastic wrapped box just arrived from CDaccess.com today! :P
Only took.. hmm 4 days I think. Nice!
It was only $15 + shipping.

This game is soooo awesome. I loved the animation, story-line and especially, the off-beat humor. This is one game I needed hardly any hints to complete (which speaks volumes about my warped mind, but that's another story!)
