For the last game in class my group finished the Marcy Case in T.I.M.E. Stories. We started off by exploring the other starting locations we hadn’t been to yet which finished off our first and second loop. We had a lot of events in our second loop that wasted a lot of time so we had to wait for trying to win until the third loop. Even with the large amount of info we had we still made several mistakes in the third loop and barely made it to the end. We also had to guess on the final puzzle but luckily got it right and won the game.
As I mentioned last time T.I.M.E. Stories reflects the importance of teamwork in leadership. My character for example was weak in combat, but was the only one good at searching for items. There was also a few mistakes we made that with better communication might have been avoided. As the only one who had played the first case I knew this series likes to troll the players. So I probably should have been more adamant about not pressing the red button that we had no clue what it would do. The result wasn’t as bad as it probably sounds but it easily could have been avoided.
A large challenge for finishing the game was the lack of clues. We knew for the final puzzle only one of the four options was correct but we only had two clues to solve it. At best the clues eliminated two options but didn’t seem to help narrow down between the final two. With very little time in class to make a decision we couldn’t come to agreement and ended up just guessing correctly. We were lucky to even have the two clues that we did and I couldn’t find any others that we missed. I would have preferred some more hints to piece the solution together.
