It looks very promising, and I will definitely give it a good go  :)

Well, I finally ordered it (though I fully admit I didn't like the first one)! I'll tell you how good it is as soon as I receive it :) .

Please, please keep us updated on the English version! I loved the first one, really looking forward to the second...

I received my copy today. The package is really nice. Started the game, graphics are rather good, so are the music.


... But I can't manage to do anything, the parser does not understand anything, I can not buy stuff even though I see it. I can not take or examine things even though it is there in the description of the room. It's terribly frustrating.
The loading between screens are also very slow.


I can not hide my disappointment, I'm sorry. But this is 2018 and the developer is supposed to have coded many professional games. The result is surprisingly awful, and I'm not having any fun playing this.

You just described me playing any text adventure game ever.

That's a shame if true...

The English version is not released yet.

Did you try Doomsday Lost Echoes? The parser is simple but does not let you down, looking at objects works, using them gives a result of whether it works or not. It does not let you in the dark! So it is possible to have fun at playing to a text adventure and I had a thrilling time playing this game. I expected the same from Athanor 2...


But really, do not take my opinion too seriously, I'm sure many people will enjoy this game. Zisquier had already finished it. I'll have another go of course. But I don't understand why playing a text adventure must be painful.

No, haven't tried it. Gotta admit my past experience; "sucking at adventure games" had made me avoid the genre.
But when you put it like that, I obviously have to check out Doomsday now...

Oh, believe me, Doomsday is just excellent* - and quite original to boot!
