Hey, bought the bundle recently and I just want to say that this is a great game. That special vibe that classic immersive sims have-- you nailed it. Some of my favourite moments were storming Junk Fort with the piano music playing in the background, getting lost in the jungle after dark, and discovering Marvin's lab in the caves.
I've almost finished my first playthrough (I've reached the finale with AARFY). I did have to cheat a bit on the Polyphonic: used editor mode to make a save prior to opening the bridge doors. Already looking forward to replaying with another character type and trying out Panama/Nightmare.
Also some (minor) bug reports (v9.3B). None of these influenced gameplay at all.
1. Medkit mastery is a passive ability, but the in-game description doesn't say so. It lists a range and meta cost, and if I try to use it I get -- ERROR: File does not exist: 'scripts\.bsl'. It works as it should though (I heal 40, cause I also have efficiency)
2. When I tell a ghoul refugee in my party to stay put I get -- ERROR: Unrecognized command: 'aifaction'. Only tried with the ghoul just outside south Pochutla.
3. When I killed the ITIC guy on the Polyphonic with Parasitic Touch I get -- ERROR: Unrecognized command: 'effect'. Don't know if it happens for others, cause he's the only one I actually finished off with Parasitic Touch.
4. One of the loading screen tips references a spell called 'Ally of Chaos', which is called 'Demon Friend' in the manual. No idea what it's called in game, cause I didn't find it.
I just reloaded the save before the oil rig, and found another bug. I went to the house in Loma Larga where all the party members wait for you, and there was Boris, offering to join me on the last mission, however when I try to talk to him, I just get the dialogue options from before when he was in his shop.
Finished it (Normal difficulty). Score 7/10. Sided with Eleggua. Made friends with Ghouls. Played as a rifle/voodoo guy for most of the time, expanding into other stuff as needed. Barely used party members at all. I am crazy about this game. The only things that annoyed me were the tedious inventory management and that fighting enemies with laser guns felt too difficult in an unfair and unfun way.
