A Grain of Truth, by the Rudowski brothers

A Grain of Truth is the latest addition to the Big Old Tree that Dreams games about the story collector Myosotis. With it, the Rudowski brothers have created a condensed point-and-click adventure that’s wonderfully illustrated and scored and has a healthy dose of puzzles. Its map system, which enables warping to previous locations, is also a nice touch. I enjoyed its challenge until the end and look forward to playing through the next dream from the Big Old Tree.

For those interested, the previous games in the mythos are Bell’s Heart and the demo of The Trader of Stories.

    Looks very interesting, I agree that the illustrations are great. I didn’t know about these games, time to check them out. Typo alert :) : “Its”, not “It’s” in 3rd and 4th lines.

    I played for half an hour and I didn’t see anything about the map letting you warp to previous locations. You’re mistaken.

    You click on the map icon and then you click on one of the dots.

    I wonder if…did ppl really think clouds were god’s thoughts? Maybe so,’cause when going into “Paint” on you computer,I see a thought cloud,or really in general,there is totally thought clouds,so,when you think about it…we might see god’s thoughts,and I know this comment is useless,but I’m just sharing my opinion! Also for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about,I love dogs!!! Hahahahaha!
