I started the game completely over and this time the magnetic boots worked like they were supposed to. You guys did an awesome job on this game! Even the official Shadowgate remake failed to evoke the same nostalgia as your game. I hope you make another one like this, only longer!
Thanks for persevering! Sorry about the boots issue, we'll take a close look to see if it's a bug. Very honored that you enjoyed it as much as you did!
I completely agree with the comparison of this with that official Shadowgate remake--Infested felt much more like Shadowgate to me than that remake.
