In “8”, there are 8 Fairies who give 8 Talents which get stolen by 8 Princes. This is the backbone of the game's structure which consistes of 8 quests that reward the player with 8 magical abilities. And the Girl's age is around 8.


Does this mean in The Path / 144 have 144 objectives, or what xD?

We have played with the thought of having 144 different Little Red Ridinghoods. Until we realized the madness of that (takes a while sometimes, for us Wink ).

There will only be 6 Little Red Ridinghoods in The Path. And with each you play a day. 6 Times 24 is 144. So it still makes sense, somewhat.

Hours in a day. Each plays a day...24 hours in a day...

Yeah.

Is that how many hours in-game or real-life hours Laughing ?

As loveleh as that would be, it would negate the short-horror-game-ness of The Path.

Sad

It's hard to estimate how much time people will spend playing The Path. Especially since it is designed to allow you to choose what you do. It's a bit like the more you choose to do the more you'll enjoy the game. So you could probably "beat the game" in an hour or so, but that won't be a lot of fun. You'll have to give yourself time to look around and discover things if you really want to get the most out of The Path.

I doubt that anyone will spend 144 hours on the game, though. The days are symbolic. Smile
