Have you looked at the top of the tower?

I've been unable to access it. There's an attic door and a ladder with some kind of mechanism, but I've been unable to open it. I'll try looking into that.

It has been so long that I forget exactly, but you have to take one of the gliders up there.

Gliders? I don't think I'm that far yet. But I guess that means that there isn't a way up there for me yet. The only other place I haven't gotten to is some sort of workshop that the bird-man closed off.

Yep. You need to find a way to get rid of him.

I had a theory as to how to get rid of him. I have the key to the barred window in the tower. The bird-man likes flying just outside. I thought the idea was to lure him inside and then lock him in, only I don't know how to lure him in. He enters that one time looking through the desk, but I can do anything during the cutscene.

Or am I completely wrong.

Remember when I said it's like MYST but more difficult? :lol:

You weren't kidding. :) The tricky thing is not only dealing with abstract puzzles, but inventory items as well.

I needed a hint. Rocks. I was missing rocks from the beach. :roll: Moving forward.

Your playthrough sounds so much like mine. :lol:

Starting over, the bird problem, the rocks... this seems to be the Lighthouse experience. Just make sure you remembered to grab the clock from the house on your second playthrough. I forgot it on mine and it came back to bite me in the late game.

I've been otherwise occupied for the past week, so I haven't played. I'll be resuming in the next few days.

I think I am making decent progress. I made it to another island and managed to solve the puzzle box in the lighthouse. I'm back on the first island. So the game is a bit frustrating at times. A number of times I've had to hunt down a hidden button or something, especially with the puzzle box. Finding inventory items is also a pain. With games that have text boxes or narration, you get clues like "You notice a wrench on the table." Here you find desks and table and shelves filled with clutter, but there are only a few items you can pick up. So I have to click back and forth hoping that I find everything.

With the patches you should have the highlighted cursor when hovering over a hot spot. It might seem like pixel hunting, but it can give you a clue as to you need to interact with in every room.

For me, making it past the intro was decent progress. This game is so insanely difficult. I honestly think I only got like 30 minutes into it before I was stuck way back in the day. :lol:
