I am enjoying the game very much so far (the atmosphere is marvelous!), yet I'm stuck at the very beginning of this rather intriguing story due to what seems to be a technical problem. When I press Space, the red question marks indicating points of interest are often more numerous than the objects I'm able to look at or take. I can't e.g. pick up the gunpowder and the dagger, and I can talk to neither the cook nor Piotr. I didn't even realize I could do any of that before giving up and resorting to the walkthrough. I've tried walking in circles, coming closer or further away, and changing to the windowed mode, but none seems to work. Could you help me, please?

If I understand correctly, it's a hotspot switching problem. There are keys used to switch the hotspots in the nearest proximity - keys: [,1,8 and - to navigate previous hotspot, and ],2,9 and + to navigate to next hotspot. To operate the selected hotspot, use it (keys Q or K) or look at it (E,L). The keyboard layout is editable in the very first popup that appears when starting the game. Please let me know if that solves the problem.

Thank you very much, it worked! I haven't had the time to play for a couple of days, and I must have forgotten about that first popup. All those keys are rarely used in this kind of games, but in the end, it is just me not being attentive enough.

Oh, no worries! It's me who is really sorry that it made the experience worse for you! It seems that my choice of controls wasn't very fortunate, but honestly, I (perhaps arrogantly...) wanted to be it like that, mostly because I always loved the "Shadow of the Comet" game controls, which are really similar... Well, it seems, that, like the said great predecessor, I also introduced more of the confusion rather than pleasant gameplay it was rather supposed to be :) I apologize, but it's so embedded in the game hotspot mechanics that it's really hard to change it to point&click right now. Lesson learned...

It's perfectly fine, I'm an extremely patient player. There are very few things that can really make a generally good experience worse for me, the controls certainly not being one of them. It probably wouldn't have caused me any problem at all if the circumstances hadn't forced me to take a break from the game. Thank you for your help again, I'm off to explore the lake and the woods. :)
