I’ve made some more progress in The DIg. I needed help with a frustrating bit about shifting dirt that reminded me a bit too much of pixel hunting. But otherwise it was entirely possible to move the story forwards. I do appreciate the subtle hints the game gives you. Now I’m stuck at reaching the last pillar though.
I even bought Catrap, the inspiration for Millie and Molly, for my New Nintendo DS. Nice to have another reason to play the handheld.
