My question: is Hector worth $5 and is it a good game for an adventure games noob like me?
I would describe Hector no so much as a Adventure but Situation Comedy Point & Click (rooms and puzzles) and totally political incorrect and other 'outish' humor on top of it.
So, yes I think it´s great.
Regarding that deus ex-sale. I tried it I mean come on.. I had blue coins some, so I needed to buy another 1000 coins with 0,76 euros so with that price I bought the original and invisible war so I could afford to try it. And I did try it, seems that it works fine at least in the beginning. I don't drop through the floor or that game would work too fast or slow.
Someone said it does not have any DRM as mentioned on GG?
