Innovate, don't emulate
Thanks guys. Looking forward to that review.
This is where I got stuck in the demo, and I mentioned this a few times during the play testing. It's definitely not intuitive. My advice is to keep touching the swords, back and forth throughout the room. Since the correct order is spread out over the length of the map it's a bit more confusing than the other switch puzzles later on. Thankfully this is the only part of the game where you have this sort of sequence.Time to admit incompetence.
I have a bit of free time, so I thought I would pick this up again, but I am stuck at the part where I came to a halt originally.
I'm in Fort Caskell, up the stairs, and have to get past the ghosts popping up and down through the floor. I have interacted with 3 swords so far, but I cannot get past the damned things to get to the next sword. If it's a question of timing, I clearly haven't got it.
