I played some more of The Dig last week. I’m quite proud of myself for making so much progress on my own. I solved a lot of puzzles. Not all of them intuitive, because if their alien nature (being on an alien planet and all). I don’t particularly like those. Abstract things like raising pillars to energize crystals. Other things were more logical. Like catching and following a critter. The game drops just enough hints most of the time, so you have got to pay attention. The same goes for my earlier criticism of the bone puzzle. I actually noticed the fossil nearby, but just hadn’t made the connection. It seems to obvious in hindsight. I’m sure I could have figured it out for myself eventually. That realization gives me the incentive to carry on. And also the beautiful scenery and music of course.
