I recently replayed it...such a cringeworthy story.
Yeah. I only played it for the frist time a couple of weeks ago, and was very dissapointed with it. It starts of great, them usic and graphics give ita a nice mood, and the initiall mystery of it all is interesting. But then eventually the puzzles become more and more nonsensical, and the story in the end is very poor. It had the makings of a great game, and totally squandered it.
As for the intro, it's nice, but for some reason I like the original look much better. And that's strange, as I usually don't have much love for pixels and pixel art (and that's putting it nicely).
