In the Steam Community for Clue/Cluedo, Marmalade (under the username Colonel Mustard - cute) has posted their Advanced Notes and Logic
strategy guide. At last, we have a thorough explanation for how they'd intended the note taking options to be used. Makes a lot more sense, reading that thing, than how I'd been using the number options.
The game looks so good on my computer, and plays very smoothly. I'll try to snag some screenshots (bit of a process in Windows 10). Unlike the screenshots & trailer they've released, the game actually feature grey borders where all the tan ones would have appeared in the mobile game (notably, the bottom, now left, tab with the Hint button, player icon, and settings menu).
It does feel a bit static when entering a room. We no longer have the pan across the room art to the center, since the full image is now viewable. It is cool to see the full sized intro video (there's a LOT of trees surrounding Tudor Mansion, as well as a large hedge maze) & room paintings, though the artwork has been obviously left unfinished at the farthest edges. Colors continue, but the fine details stop at a certain point -- like the edges of a painter's canvass past the point where the frame would cover the edge. This isn't unbecoming or annoying, though, since the game was originally designed with narrow mobile screens in mind.
It's a little counterintuitive to have to move from taking notes on the right of the screen, to opening my hand of cards on the left of the screen. It would feel smoother, I think, if the opponents' icons were arranged at the left, with the player's icon/hand on the right.
The PC version doesn't include a dedicated shop for the extra skins. Instead, they offer access to the Season Pass (unlock everything now & in the future) from the game's Steam Store listing, and from the main menu of the game. To purchase individual boards/characters, player's have to progress as if setting up a game, and buy these items individually. Packs of boards with characters are offered on the same page as the option of just buying a board.
At present, the game does not offer an option to sign in with Facebook. Not only does this leave me with the awful player ID "PinkGorgon617," it also means I don't know yet if players will be able to sync their purchases across all platforms. My iOS and Android versions of the game have done this because of my Facebook login, and I'll be very disappointed if Marmalade doesn't implement a way for long time mobile players to sync their ID, boards, characters, hints, and scores with the Steam version.
Marmalade should also incorporate a version of the redesigned menus into the mobile game, even if they don't launch a landscape option for tablets. The screens slide from one to the next, following threads of string like a detective's bulletin board tying together parts of a crime. It's much more polished than the current graphics, and character selection is a lot cleaner than the mobile game's setup, with the options grouped by theme rather than by character.
