Under rating threshold (show) This was fantastic! Funny, moving, interesting and challenging. This is a rare 5/5 for me. I'd love to see another game built around this concept! Now I'ma go back and hang around a village for a couple hundred years and see how advanced the people get.

Under rating threshold (show) Maybe the 'traveler' is a reference to another of scriptwelder's games, Deep Sleep? (with the dream being another world and all)

Under rating threshold (show) Oh! I am so sorry - meant to also say how much I like this game. The subtleness of the background music really offsets the slow, deliberate pace of the game. Very well done.

Under rating threshold (show) Sometimes to overcome he just had to wait. And thus, he waited 400 years for the sheer edge of the lake to erode away, leaving a slope he could walk up. But alas, it was too late. The world had ended.

Under rating threshold (show) FrozenFire - Some people are living in stone-age conditions right now. The people you encounter in the game could be refugees, or cut off from the rest of humanity. You're right about the volcano, though - blocking it might delay the eruption, but pressure will eventually build up to the point that it explodes - possibly being worse than if it wasn't blocked.

Under rating threshold (show) Great & unique concept. Meaningful although short. I loved every bit of this little game, from the relaxing and serene music, perfectly fitting the theme, to the changing environment and very concept of "waiting game" implemented in such an original and beautiful way. Great work scriptwelder, though I wish it was longer, at least twice as long.

Under rating threshold (show) Do not try this at home, it will not stop volcanoes from erupting! The pressure would make the whole thing explode. Plus you would get burned because magma.

Under rating threshold (show) First of all, great game and original concept. It is not very often you find a game that presents original gameplay, mixed with interesting ideas and questions. I know alot of people are asking for the ability to walk faster, (and I would usually agree,) but I actually enjoyed the slow pace of the stone monolith because it lent itself to the idea of this Easter isle - type demigod intervening on humanity's behalf. As a result, I found myself asking alot of questions about the meaning behind it; plus, the visual image of this behemoth standing there, waiting, while 100 years sped past was sublime. Especially, contrasted against the hurry and panic of a human lifetime. All in all, it is a beautiful presentation of supernatural / supra-natural forces working behind the scenes to assist and intervene on our behalf, in ways the we just don't notice for many reasons.

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts on 400 Years. I think you've captured exactly what I tried to show with this game. I love your interpretation !

Under rating threshold (show) Quick tips for people who have trouble: 1. Water freezes in winter 2. if you see a tree or a stalagmite near a ledge, wait for it to grow 3. Chestnuts drop in Autumn, then plant them near a ledge 4. Grain can be picked up in autumn as well, deliver it to the citizens via the underwater passage and then plant it on the left side of the village 5. To get a helping hand, you need to wait for the people to develop after having planted the grain, they will build two bridges (one after the other) after a while. 6. Observe the underwater path, position yourself above the hole in winter, then wait 7. the boat gets to the left on spring and right on autumn. Go to the left of the town, you will see a ledge with chestnuts to be planted on the other side. 8. Get into the volcano, the end.

Under rating threshold (show) Walk Faster? Patience, dear friends, patience. Nitpicking time though: Since the game ends on winter 2013 and you have 400 years, we can say that the game begins in 1613, which is NOT the Stone Age as humans are displayed. Also, we can say that you can't just put a massive stone block on a volcano to stop an eruption, but that can be excusable to a certain degree.

Under rating threshold (show) ATTENTION, CHROME USERS! To (significantly) better your flash performance, do the following: Go to chrome://plugins , Click "details" to unfold plugins info. Under "Adobe Flash Player" you should have two or three files listed. Only one will be something like C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\ and the others will be Chrome's files. The flash installed in your system directory is the one best optimised for your PC, while the Chrome ones are universal (and less performing). Disable the Chrome ones and leave the system files. Maybe restart your browser. VOILA!
