Hey, everyone. I've changed my online username. I am no longer JonBro, and I won't be continuing anything that was made with the JonBro name. If you want to see an archive of my older work as well as what I'm up to now, you can find out here:
Riddle School 5

I'd like to state for the record that you're not supposed to click on the broken tile to beat one particular room of the game. Clicking on a random object shouldn't have immediately led to a cutscene. That was a glitch when I first submitted. You're supposed to legitimately find and solve a puzzle in the room!

* Another note *
Unfortunately, it would appear the music for the puzzle room at the end of the game is no longer online. The creator has a music contract of some kind, meaning the song probably won't be put on Newgrounds again.

The finale to the Riddle School series. Not a joke this time.

This is the longest, craziest, and best game of the entire series. Sorry about the file size, but this game really is big. You might want to fit in some time to play it because it takes more than ten minutes to beat, and probably a good bit longer if it's your first time playing.

After the many helpful comments I got yesterday when I submitted RS4, I got right to work and finished this in one day. No, I'm kidding, I've been working on this for two months. I had the wild idea after making RS4 that I could start and finish RS5 between the first of February and the first of April. I didn't quite make the deadline, as I finished it today, but I wasn't going to release it the same day as the fourth game anyway. I was really going to release it tomorrow, but then today felt right.

I don't really want to spoil any of the plot twists, settings, or puzzles in this game, so witness for yourself this hopefully climactic point-and-click adventure.

Also remember that after you beat the game and see your time, you can view the game's Special Features.

The timer at the end states how many minutes you played, and how many seconds you played. For some reason, those are two separate things. Sorry if anyone's confused like I was lol

Thanks for the frontpage :D

This is pure genius what you did. I remember playing RS3 in 2009 when I first got on Newgrounds. It was great, but I never could have imagined a plotline this complex could have been spawned from just obscure details from the first 4 games (especially an April Fool's one). You took what I thought just was going to be a prompt-like storyline premise, and blew way past my expectations. I read the article of why you cancelled the RT series, and part of it was about wanting people to see point and click games in a new light, and I truly think you accomplished that with this game (at least for me). I was disappointed at the cancellation of the series but I wasn't disappointed in you for doing it and respect your decision, finding the reasons were very understandable. You are my main source of inspiration, being one of the first guys I ever saw on here, and right now I'm trying to develop my own point and click adventure.

That's amazing! I'm glad I've been able to inspire you, and I wish you well on your adventure to make a point-and-click adventure :)

Dear JonBro,

I love all of your games so much, but why did you call off the riddle transfer 2 project when you knew that all of your fans and I were counting on it ? So... please tell me that you'll consider getting back behind that computer animation window and make us proud.

Please send message to me affirming if you will continue or just let us all lose our hopes,

From the most hopeful high-schooler in the world,

I've written a lot about this here and there. A lot of information can be found on my site.

This page is a pretty good summary of what happened with Riddle Transfer 2:

This page expands specifically on why I chose to cancel it:

As for "getting behind that computer animation window", I never left! I've been planning and working on brand new stuff with every chance I get. I wish I knew when any of the new things I have planned will get finished, but I'm excited for when that happens.

That's part of two deviantART Riddle School fan groups? I didn't even know those existed. Thanks for the link!
