Finally started reading your story, and I like it very much. I liked the Indiana Jones references and Just found the Gabriel Knight reference in New Orleans, quite funny, since I was thinking about that game the whole chapter. It made me also think of where the water tastes like wine, since that game also has a guitar player who sold her Soul to the Devil.
Even with being just in chapter 3, I think this Story will make it to my choice & HG Games Top 5 or 3.

Thanks for your comment. I’m happy that you liked it - and also happy that someone got the Gabriel Knight ref, it’s such an old game that I figured that that one would probably pass everybody by!

EDIT: Also, I never played “Where the Water Tastes Like Wine”, and I just googled it, and it looks great! Will be playing it ASAP.

It’s more of a walking Simulator, but I really liked the Soundtrack, and how the stories spread and evolve when you tell them to the people. Be sure to have some stories of every genre with you. :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh and I am playing games since 38 years, so I know a lot of the old Games, esp. RPG and Adventures, yeah I am that old :crazy_face:

Is there a guide on the gambling in the Red Mountain casino? Trying to get the achievement for it. I tried looking at the code but uhh… let’s just say codes and I don’t mingle well…

The casino games are mostly games of chance. There isn’t really a way to game them. I’d suggest concentrating on blackjack, since there is at least an element of judgment to that game, whereas the others (slot machines and roulette) are pure chance.

Ah, I see. Thank you.

Also, the High Roller achievement is for big spending, not big winning. You need to spend at least £60 at the tables to get the achievement. For “poorer” MCs, that means that you have to win a little bit to get your available spending money up to that much, but richer MCs can just blow £60 on a single bet and, win or lose, they get a free achievement!

So I have a question (again…I know I’m annoying)
So before I started the Hong Kong mission, my fortune was “Rich as Croesus” all the way. And then I got paid by him on top of it. And then towards the end it says you “pay a chunk of the money Anderson paid you” to Vera for the info, which is fair, but then my fortune dropped down to Affluent? Since I paid a chunk of that to her, I still should have some of it left on top of my previous fortune, right? I didn’t pay her money on top of what he paid me, so shouldn’t my fortune at least be what it was before the Hong Kong mission/before what he paid me?

So the screen where you lose that point of Fortune is actually the screen that finishes Chapter 6 and dumps you back in the “present”, after you’ve been captured by Nazis. I think the decrease in Fortune was meant to reflect the Nazis taking all the money you had on you - which would include whatever remained of Anderson’s payment - after they’d captured you. That might not be super-clear in the text, thinking about it.
