and again enjoy you are asking the same questions as me lol

Pop! It is Price. you get that word by talking to a guy that has his back to you next to the red headed tattooed guy

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 11:49 AM  

Phew, just in time LOL!

I'm slowly replaying & taking some notes...
(don't remember everything, so can't answer sometimes...)

@jo ann your rope is hung up in the wagon. ~@enjoy where is the word business then i can not find it

Can't find last word for third story. Assume it is business. Any clues?

Found my knotted rope! for any of you who can't find it, it was originally in the bird's nest and then up on the right side of the caravan inventory
off to measure some floating rocks!

the knotted rope fell down to the entrance of big rocks (cleft)

I am missing on wedge shape thought that goes at 9:00. I am getting tired of this already

the questions are
2. connection + sleep
3. Price + business
4. environment + cloudeater
5. scientific + (? starts with an "I" and ends in "isve")
6. truth + hidden + ledgend

so the 'price' influenced 'crew'? made sense to me but doesn't work D:

still can not find the word business

I can't remember where I found the word business.... will take a look around

Am having trouble with the sentence

You believe that the _____ about clouds is ____ in ____?

I thought it was truth, hidden, The Great Oak but nope

Spoilers for questions below...



Spoiler .....

don't say I didn't warn you.... spoiler below

Q1: tradition, bedding, family
Q2: connection, sleep
Q3: price, business
Q4: environment, cloud eater
Q5: scientific, influence
Q6: truth, hidden, legends

don't know if there are anymore. after I got them all I couldn't go back and look at the words

Don't forget to re-talk to some of the people. Especially the guy who helps you make the pillow

Wow this is involved lol... still looking for some words I think for the story. I can't start the captain's story yet, does that only work when you have all the words, or am I missing something?

now i need to find business :P lol thank you rsa and enjoy!!

The word "business" is in the entrance of the cave in the excavation site. Below the canopy

Thank you for the spoiler for the words!

story is now done, but am missing 4 thoughts.... off to look again

still keeping my eye open for the word business

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:03 PM  

examine camp (canvas roof at floating rocks scene)


The first question you ask him should be from words you found on the cloudeater. After that you have to go down the ladder and take the journey to the floating rocks in order to find the correct words

ty ty ty got it now

ahhhh, that was odd... I now have all thoughts. Did I get them by getting the story?

ahhh! thank you again found it!! :D lol

ouch missing hidden now

What am I supposed to ask Wiseman?

Thanks RSA... am on top of the rock at the moment with the wiseman lol, will go and do that now :)

hidden anyone


Brogettenks 5/31/12 6:02 AM
clouds, past, future, connection, Great Oak, me, dreams, sleep

.... in truth you don't have to ask him anything. Just go looking for your giant turtle

Hm, I felle a little embarassed but i can't find Zephir at the end of the game, just two empty shells...

For "business", it is in the "excavation site", just examine the enter (the rock just in the middle of the map).


Talk about being redundant !
Too many comments and not enough patience :)

Erm ok... I have found 11 words, I know I have some more to find. But how do I insert them into the 'asking the question' about the story? LOL sorry... feeling bit stupid


Go to the tree and look at the horizon where the cloudeater used to be

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:15 PM  

For a little joke, PurpleLogic,
ask him about bird ;-D
or for more spiritual stuff: about god...!

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:17 PM  

for some laughs, use different items on chinese guy on cloud eater...!

SOOOOO Good, I want more!!

that was an awesome game! Well worth the two year wait.

Hope the next one comes out sooner though!

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:18 PM  

click on gap in sentence & then on word you want to put in.

Oh no Premiere! I now have to replay the game to try to get the funny comments!

can anyone remember where the word hidden was i am about to give up on this game

Ow, didn't see that, thank you RSA !

Great game, super great story line ♥.

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:22 PM  

I didn't find it yet in replaying...

mayhaps you can go back with «continue»...?!

nvm i found it now sorry

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:24 PM  

POP, bigtank!!!
chest in cave with water...!!!

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 12:25 PM  

*examine chest

big tank
it's in the treasure where the water is

Oh for goodness sake.... HAHAHAHAHAHA @ MYSELF!! When I was talking to people, I was writing the words down on a bit of paper, not clicking them to add to the list!! LOL so that is why I couldn't add any words to the story! Going to have to go everywhere again to get the words PROPERLY! Maybe I shouldn't play this with a glass of wine in my hand?? ;)

ok i have finished thankyou all for your help

go meditate on created cloud pillow in hidden cave (trapdoor open with cup puzzle).

It has probably been mentioned, but if you click the 'eye icon' on top left corner... it shows you hot spots to click :) (coming in very handy at the moment)

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 1:43 PM  

I sooo want to make one of the pillow for real. :)
I didn't have too much trouble once I got the majong game figured and last floating rock ( with butterfly net).
To make sure I didn't miss words, I went every sceen and click the "eye" then examined and talked to everyone again real closely

I'm truly stuck on the 3 question for the captain. I know the second and last word is


but what's the first word, and where do I find it?
The sentence is "So the _____ of the cloud-filled bedding gave you the incentive to start your own _____?"


Not sure where to find it EXE, but there are some spoilers above which give the words needed :)

       Anonymous  5/31/12, 1:49 PM  

price & business

How do you get 'environment'?

Nevermind, just found out that you can look out the window in the bedroom. :P

wow what a good game.

The first game I could play. Why not now? I don't have a Mac of iPad. I just have Google.
Somebody have a suggestion please?

How could you all play this game?

An utterly brilliant game - fantastic graphics, logical puzzles, an enticing story. Congratulations to the designers.

These games are absolutely stunning!!!
It must have been a years since the previous one, and although I've played hundreds escape games since then, it's one of the few I haven't forgotten.

well it was okay. wasn't expecting a game with so many options unlike the last one. it has my approval although I've been working on it for two days now. i have a feeling that there will not be more of this series because she goes home and takes the wise man's advice.

Clouds-start on left....towards right.

cover page loads, but game won't start ("New game" button depresses, but nothing happens)

This is one of the authors of the game, Marek Rudowski. Thank You all for Your engagement. Seeing Your comments makes us want to start another game immediately (and we have promised ourselves some free time :)). We will try to create more games for You to enjoy as soon as possibly.
Best Regards

Why doesn't anybody answer me? Why can't I play? I don't have a Mac of iPad! So please make this game available for everyone.

       Anonymous  6/2/12, 7:58 AM
