[SPOILERS] A few general questions.

I've been told that Penumbra is an (unfortunately) short game, which is why I'm asking this only a couple hours into the game; how close am I to the end? I just left the Spider Tunnels and stacked some boxes using a crane.

I'd also like to ask if there's going to be a sequel, an episode two? If so, I'd like to suggest that you PLEASE do not add any overpowered guns or weapons that kills things very easily, the feeling of being nigh-defenseless is half the fun of the game and also the reason why it's so damn scary in my opinion.

You guys did an amazing job on creating a ridiculously scary atmosphere. I seriously cannot play for more than 10 minutes without saving and closing the game, it's a good thing though, it's much scarier than any other game I've ever played. I've never felt such intense terror when trying to escape from mutant wolves and struggling to make my way out of a claustrophobic tunnel with spiders biting at my heels and pouncing on my back.

The puzzles are amazing too, some of them are so simple and at the same time they're so complex, I had to refer to the (only) walkthrough over on GameFAQs quite a lot, only to make myself feel like a complete idiot because the solution was so simple.

In closing I'd like to say: thank you Frictional Games for scaring the living hell out of me, I eagerly await episode two if there's going to be one.

There's going to be an Episode 2 and Episode 3.
I'd say you're somewhere about half-way.

Hah, a "few hours" into the game. That could be anywhere inbetween 3-8 Big Grin

Worst regards, Kejdane.

Ah, must have misread. I usually read and switch inbetween posts randomly as I see fit.
Anyone said the word "few" in some other thread, anyone?

Worst regards, Kejdane.

"a couple" doesn't necessarily mean 2, heh.

even though, there are games you could easily complete in about 3-4 hours.
it took me a bit longer than that to complete this (PART OF THE) game.

Yup. A couple is two, two is couple A.

RE: [SPOILERS] A few general questions.

couple = 2
few = 3 - 6
several = 7 - 19
