Gargoyle head in The Dig freezes game


#1

I was just grinding through The Dig on Legendary setting for some better gear when I came upon the stone gargoyle head puzzle (the one where you need to find another gem and put it into the eye socket for a treasure). This wasn’t anything new, so I walked up, hit E to see what color the gem would be… and then my game kind of locked up.

The music is still playing, the characters and enemies still have movement, and I can move the cursor around, but I’ve tried hitting Esc, moving the choice down to “Leave” and hitting E, both with the keyboard, mouse and my USB Playstation controller. Nothing is working. The game isn’t frozen up, it’s just refusing to let me leave the puzzle screen

Has this happened to anybody else?
