Under rating threshold (show) I'm impressed I can't wait for the next one. The music was very good matched the town's atmosphere very well. Ahm the art was perfectly matching everything I think it was putting everything together. That art was so characteristic, a bit sketchy some times which was really good. The coloring was outstanding so vivid, real. The sceneries... I have to mention that I've found myself staring those beautiful views. I have to admit that for me to start reading a game's story it must really catch me, well this one did it. It was fast and objective at some points, just theory though I believe that those fast points help the player's will to read the greater parts of the storyline. I wish we had some more work to do in the forest and the waterfalls, which were both very nice scenes btw. It was an inspiring game, I wish we had more games like that in the future.

Under rating threshold (show) This is an epic adventure story of stealing everything that's not nailed down, particularly old womens' magical amulets, and plucking hairs from sleeping or otherwise unwary creatures. Helped along with amazing artwork, and a well suited musical score, this is truly a masterpiece of everyday life!

Under rating threshold (show) Thanks for this beautiful game. I really like the concept of putting a story together and having that story serve the people of the village. I worked in oral histories for two years with former mill workers, and our work was much like that. Also, it's interesting that the illusive character is named Derrida. Jacques Derrida is the literary critic who developed "deconstruction," a process for un-building a narrative. So, I thought that Derrida might be working to un-build Myositis' efforts to construct his story. Pastel, I dig it!

Under rating threshold (show) Note: You do not use the same bottle that contained the wine to contain the potion. The bottle you need to contain the potion of the drowned can be seen when you talk to the innkeeper in the top right corner. All the other items are straightforward enough.

Under rating threshold (show) Walkthrough (in English) Part 1: Take the broken wheel and the bag of food in the cart. Feed the mount. Click the clump of trees in the background. Take the acorn and the camomile flower. Enter the forest on the right. Now click the base of the tree with no lanterns and then the bell clapper. Come back out and click on the big rock, click again to read its inscription. Go into town. Go into the abandoned house. Read the note on the floor and get some cat fur from the sleeping cat. Cross the bridge. Talk to the woman at the well and then go to the stable. Talk to the woman at the stable. Ask her “who is Derrida”? ASK EVERYONE THIS QUESTION. Go to the alley where the Wayside Inn is located. Pick up the acorns on the right side of the alley. Talk to the gypsy at the far end, buy 2 formulas from him. Enter the Wayside Inn. Talk to the barman. Take the empty potion bottle from behind him. Look behind the curtain and buy the bottle of fine wine. Take the flint and a hair from the drunk.

Villager: She stole some of them so that she could put a spell on the drunkard so that she could return him to his wife & get her Husk back &... Constable: [interrupts] Her what? Villager: Husk...it's like a giant turtle creature that she uses as a means of conveyance...

Under rating threshold (show) This is a sublime game. It is quite simple and easy, but it is the music, sounds, and scenery that makes this game a pleasure to play. Not only that, but this game has inspired me to finally learn to program games myself, which is quite a feat, considering my actual lack of RL time. That is in no small part the reason I enjoy this game site all of us share. Very fun game.

Under rating threshold (show) I can't think of a fantasy-edged-with-science-fiction story with such gorgeous worldbuilding (and art!) since Carla Speed McNeil's "Finder" series. The depth of the world behind this short adventure is staggering, in addition to intriguing and interest-piquing. Everything from race and culture, to domestication and architecture, to spirituality and even the insular nature of small villages, is so much more developed than in any other game I can think of. Do NOT miss Marek Rudowski's blog, where you can see the artwork and read about the development process for the larger adventure comic / game "The Big Old Tree That Dreamed," AKA "The Trader of Stories," which "The Bell's Heart" (this game) is just a small part of! It's at traderofstories.blogspot.com and is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed playing the Pastel-Games-licensed first 'episode' here.

Under rating threshold (show) Really a great game. Only ennoyign thing was that the potion bottle is hard to find. I'm not sure if it's intentional or not but i noticed you can sell the drunkard for 2 acorns XD There is also a bug though that makes the dialog disappear if you scroll over an item during it. (Happened to me when talknig to mayor, had to restart the game :( )
