idiotic plots

Why don't I enjoy playing Time Hollow when away from my computer/walkthrough?

In the particular segment I reached last night while visiting a friend, I cannot simply go to the place I need to go to, even though it's reasonably apparent that this place is important and even the in-character help (the psychic girl) tells me I need to go there.

Or rather, I can go there, but nothing happens, and I can poke at the screen endlessly wondering what I'm missing and why.

Instead, I have to go to several other locations and be told by another character that I'm in the wrong place. Only after being forcibly told that these places are wrong can I go to the right place and have it actually work.

Can't click on a door to try and open it, have to try and leave by another exit to then NOTICE that the other door is unlocked and open it.

AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.

Somehow I'm reminded of this wonderful IF game (with MST3K commentary). (Online playable version)
