Hey Oded, congratulations on the release! I finished episode 1 and it was a lot of fun. Probably the biggest problem is that it might be a bit too short, because the puzzles are quite easy. But I guess balancing the game length is a common problem for episodic content.
Other than that, there are only some minor issues. The inventory items should be interactive within the whole inventory cell, the non-interactive mouse pointer might be semi-transparent, because it tends to get in the way of subtitles sometime. The voice volume of different characters seemed to be too different. Oh by the way, the voice acting is great, IMO, especially Jackie.

I've seen people criticizing the graphics. Personally I like the comic style. Everything blends together nicely. The speech bubbles and the next objective are nice touches.

well, if we'd have made it any longer, it wouldn't have been released on Aug16th 2009 but 2012 :)
there are still many bugs in it, for example sometimes the daemon script that is there to have abbie call the portal service and ask for the words gets stuck or worse - disappears.

you might be right about the non interactive mouse pointer. didn't think about it.
I'm not sure what you mean about the whole inventory cell, but i'll take a look at how it is done and see what i can do.
in any case, all improvements will be in Episode 2 which we're working on now.

I like the graphics myself. I don't like that metallic unrealistic looking pre-rendered photorealistic 3D myself.

getting the camera closeups was especially hard, and it causes problems (model glitches) in scenes like when you call the pizza. you can even see them in the gameplay video
for some reason, an inactive actor retains its old animation even though i've set it with a new one a few seconds. also putting a sleep() in place didn't work.
there are other bugs and stuffs that you can find my posts about in the forums :)

I think Mnemonic means the trouble with targeting cursor on coins you take from table - only top left of inventory cell is active.

You can also open bag twice to get keys (the second time you already have keys in your inventory). When you get keys second time "I should see if it actually works" voice file is not played.

BTW, the game is nice but really too short. I finished it in half an hour on hard level. I also have a question, does registration of episode one unlock save feature only or does it enable some additional features? In other words what is the difference between demo and full mode of the game?

Ah, I got it, the game continues from the same exe when you buy it?.. It is not obvious, though.
