I tried this without the walkthrough, and didn't get very far. Then I tried it with the walkthrough, and found myself confused by the seeming arbitrariness of it all. Not to mention that at least one of the sequences in the walkthrough didn't seem to work. (Maybe I did something wrong? Maybe I accidentally screwed up a trigger? I don't know, but I never found where the armoire was that I was supposed to be opening. Other people inform me that they did follow the walkthrough with success, so it was probably my poking around and doing things out of order that broke the game.)

I don't know. I don't want to be too discouraging; I didn't get far enough to interact with the main puzzles, and maybe they were good. I just found both the plot and opening puzzles that I saw pretty arbitrary, not giving me enough motivation to want to pursue them further, especially since it would've meant starting over with the walkthrough again. There are some games where I feel guilty about the minimal attention I gave them, and this is one. But even after a break, I didn't feel like coming back to it, somehow. Oh well.
