Would love to play this but it simply won't start. Tried through steam and Desura. At one point I got to see a valve logo before it crashed. After installing through Desura it crashes before I even get a chance to see the logo. Shame.

I'll have to try this again with headphones, the sound doesn't seem to be reproduced accurately on my 5.1 system in source, I'm going to blame the engine, as I use my 5.1 speakers to hear exactly where enemies are in a lot of games. Also the player's footsteps are a tad loud.

There ought to be more games like this; sometimes I want to play a game but also want to rest my eyes.

the biggest problem i had was even though it sounded like i was right next to someone i wasnt, i had to run about like an idiot for ages several times, once i had to follow the stream it became impossible because i crossed it several times and lost my place and direction; the constant walking noise didnt help because you couldnt tell if you were running into a wall or not.

what would be interesting to see for the person who has just completed the game is a topdown picture of the map and the route/path they have taken

Fantastic other than the ending which was a bit confusing, I kept trying to follow the bell after the jig but never got there... now I'm here I see you weren't mean't to from other comments. Maybe the end could have been clearer... but other than that absolutely fantastic.

The Jig marks the end of the game, right? 'Cause I spent a few minutes just listening to the ambient noises afterwards, wondering if the Blind Monks had abandoned me...
