I finally played through MM as well! I have tried playing it a few times (every time I play DOTT for example) but I always get stuck, get frustrated, and give up. This time I went to the dark side and used a walkthru. Without the frustration the game is pretty neat! There’s a lot of extra space with no items and empty rooms, but that’s not a problem when you know what you’re doing. I love the story and the characters moving around and catching you – it adds a great suspense to what is normally a chill genre. But I think it is heavily affected by being made in a time when people were ready to bash their heads and brute force all options in order to make progress…
