Thumbs up Dear Esther Playthrough

I beat the game in 1 hour and 8 minutes, I'm fairly certain I didn't do a full exploration, but here's my first playthrough of the game, complete with all the narration and cinematics and my reactions to them

Episode 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=756ZDTlqYM0
Episode 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDJbQ...1&feature=plcp
Episode 3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eefXRrDj_I

(I will post more episodes as they're uploaded, if the thread lives that long)

EDIT: You can also subscribe to www.youtube.com/shadeypwns so you'll have each episode as soon as it's uploaded and support me

Excellent, loved that first part - your commentary is hysterical at times.

More please!

Thanks.

Interesting that you noticed something/someone in that cave at about 11:36 - nice spot there.

Part 2 is up! Thanks for linking it Iron.

If you look at 1:20 on part 2, you can see a shadow walking along the cliff edge, i totally missed it, and didn't spot it until later until I saw it standing at the end of that path over the waters.

Yeah, there's a screenshot somewhere of that figure near the wrecked boats.

Ah yes, here it is:

Looking forward to part 3 to hear your reactions to the caves .......

Great, thanks - will keep on eye out for part 3.

You know, if you feel like it you ought to do another walkthrough in a few days. The experience will be different, plus you can keep your eyes peeled for more creepy figures ........

Shadee, did you see the running figure when you re-watched part 2?

Distant figures appear to vanish when you look directly at them, ie the best way to see them is at the edges of the screen.

For part 2, at 1:22 you'll see the figure running down the left side of the cliff, but as soon as the camera turns to face it, it vanishes.

Part 4 will be up tomorrow, I've got a limited amount of time in the day to spend on uploading, and just 1 part can take up to 2 hours unfortunately :/

@Iron I did see that figure when I rewatched part 2, it's pretty subtle when there's a giant wrecked ship in front of you lol

@polka zomg thanks for the rep

True enough - I didn't notice ANY figures on my first walkthrough, except for the one on the cliff near the end (the one standing near the candle).

Talking during the game... Wtf, it completely ruins it. You can't watch it for about 1min this way

Don't watch it then.

I know what you mean, but at the same time I've watched a few walkthroughs of the game on YouTube, all with commentary tracks, simply because I find it fascinating to hear people's opinions as they play the game. It adds a whole new dimension to the game (for me at least).

So far I've enjoyed Shadee's commentary the most.

I also thoroughly enjoy replaying the game alone - it's very, very different and far more 'personal' when playing it on your own (as it's designed to be played).

Shadee - I look forward to part 4 (at this rate I guess there will be 5 or 6 parts?).
