totally forgot how you first get on the track to the mercury lighthouse when you beat trent the tree and he says "well shit, i'd love to save all those people i turned into trees but i'm just too weak, i'm dying, going to be dead any minute now."
and then he just hangs out on the brink of death long enough for you to walk all the way to a different climate zone, solve the puzzles of the lighthouse, and come back with a bottle of holy water for him.
this game is ridiculous and i love it.
today at work i had a strange computer issue. my mouse cursor stopped interacting with objects reliably. it still moved around normally, but it wouldn't change shape for different contexts like the text bar or the pointy finger, and buttons and things wouldn't highlight when hovering over them. it seemed like a soft-freeze, so i restarted the computer, but it was still happening.
to fix it, i unplugged and replugged my mouse. i do not understand.
in any case i am glad that it doesn't linger long.
this is how you prove to be a normal and not creepy person, by standing off to the side and watching in silence as they walk by.
