I've just started it: I visited the first couple of locations and watched for a while the little worm trying to avoid me. For now, I find it amusing and wonderful to look (and hear) at. I'm not a fan of blond guys - quite the contrary in fact - but Torin seems likable to me, so I'm really eager to play it. Is it a big game or a quick adventure? I hope it's big and full of things to do/see/interact with!

Oh, and great introduction movie! :)

It's a big game. Many different "worlds" to see - and many different things to do!

I can not put into words how much I love Torin's Passage. I was even doing a thing where I was capturing the video as I played - to cut and splice into a single like cartoon thing. (But gave up on it because it proved to take quite a bit of effort...)

But it really is amazing.

Thats good that you got Torin's Passage. Its a great game. I have completed it a few times the whole way through and many times starting from the final location.

I think it's one of the richer (in character) games that Sierra even dished out. I mean, I think it comes close to KQ6. KQ6 is just more... epic... because you face off with things like Death... and KQ6 has more puzzles... but Torin's Passage... I can't put it into words. Like I could see it as a Disney movie or a Saturday Morning Cartoon. :)

I would say its more like a Disney Movie because of the story and graphics.

I just got the slugs from the tree and the peat bog. I'm loving it and I can't wait to see the other worlds! I'm so glad I'm playing it! :)

I've reached Escarpa and - after a curse or two toward the fake laughs/applause in the Bitternuts' :evil: - I've managed to retrieve seven of the nine missing tiles. I know perfectly where the eight is (in the underground thermal baths; I have only to figure out how to fix the ladder), but I haven't the slightest clue on how to find the ninth. I don't want to use the hint system, so now I'll play another bit and then I'll see if the night will bring advise! ;)

Ask for a hint here before you do the hint system. We can probably give a more obscure hint. And don't forget to use Boogle from time to time... he's quite useful. :)

I've taken the eight tile. I'm still missing the ninth.

So far I've got:

The two tile hanging just about the landing spot. The tile in Bitternuts' house. The tile given to me by the Hermit. The tile disguised as a sign; the other tile from the serraglio. The thermal tile. The tile in the dragon's lair.

I've just reached Aesthenia. I must say that I was a bit disappointed by Pergola: by the look of it, I was eager to explore it but - in the end - I had nothing to do apart from a couple of phenocryst puzzles. I hope that Aesthenia will be more tough and long ;)

I think there was originally supposed to be more to Pergola. It just wasn't in their budget, or it didn't fit on the CD.
