When was the last time you played a real game? Where you actually wanted to get as far as you could, not just testing something or playing in wizard mode. Any version or variant. For me it was this summer, so about 2 months ago

I tend to play it in bursts, so i'll play it relentlessly for about 2 or 3 days and then get pissed at it and leave it for a month.

Duh, I had months-long breaks but I play IVAN quite regularly, sometimes night-long. It's among my favs, and if I ever get a tattoo it's gonna be a pick-axe-banana.

A few days ago. I pretty much returned to playing the game after a hiatus of a few months. I finally need to beat the bloody thing one day (now why the f*** did I run into the portal instead of killing Elpuri the last time, eh)

Err... Most of us haven't played IVAN in years. It's not forbidden to visit if you don't play...

It appears that Erno was 100% incorrect. Not a single person has voted for the more than one year option

I haven't played in over a month. I think I'll play for a tiny bit right now. It's annoying as hell playing without a numpad, but whatever, I need to drink ommel fluids.

You don't have to have a numpad. I don't have one on this laptop of mine and I play just fine. Use Home, Pg Up, Pg Dn, End.

Yeah, same here. I howerver use those fancy Fn+1, Fn+2 etc. combinations and got used to them pretty quick. If I have situations where I have to carefully plan, and move diagonally, I don't need to do it quick, anyway.

I actually used the top row of numbers when I had my laptop without numpad

My Home, Pg Up, Pg Dn, and End keys are placed very inconveniently for me, and not in a pattern where the directions make any sense, at least not to muscle memory. I have been using the Fn numpad when needed, but I like playing IVAN speedily, and going through GC 6 trying to angle myself to hit the kamikaze dwarf with a wand of striking before he blows up my angel, just removes the tension when I have to stop and stare at my keyboard to find the light blue numbers hidden in my letter keys. I would rather it be really fast paced and entertaining.

Which reminds me, today I would've died by a veteran kamikaze dwarf in GC 6, but I prayed to silva, not knowing this would screw up the game. I loaded the auto save and lived. Good ol' glitch saves.
