A lot of people have complained about the controls, mainly because there's an issue that doesn't allows you jump to the left (while running). However, this happens only when you press the left key, up key, and the space bar at the same time.
I really wish I could fix it, but it's not a problem of my script, it's a problem of our keyboards. Here it's better explained: /board/showthread.php?t=7 89015 (remove the spaces).

You can try different combinations like moving with the arrow keys, running with space and jumping with W, or using ctrl to run instead of the space bar, etc. so you won't have any issue.

Just find a path to the Apple Tree.

Well, I worked really hard on this thing. It should have been released like one month ago, but I'm so damn slow, plus drawing with the mouse is such a pain in the ass.
Lots of things happened during the making of this, and well, just try to enjoy it so much.

I also made two songs only for this thing. If your ears start bleeding at some point of the game, then you are probably hearing one of my songs. They are horribly composed, horribly played, and horribly recorded, but I like them, and I just wanted to put them here.
I also made some sounds too!!! YEAH!!!

I just submited an UPDATE!! It could make all of you arrow lovers happy!!!

A or Left arrow = LEFT
D or Right arrow = RIGHT
W or Up arrow = UP
S or Down arrow = CROUCH
SPACE or Ctrl = RUN
MOUSE = INTERACT WITH STUFF (if an object get's brighter when you walk near to it, it means you can click it)
Q = CHANGE THE QUALITY (I recommend you to set it on "medium")

Also, try this, I found it really cool. Walk and crouch with the arrow keys, run with space and jump with W.

Depending on what you do during the game, you will get a different ending. It has three different endings (Coward is NOT an ending).

I also added medals to this, but there's still two medals that hasn't been approved yet, so, I'll put the names and descriptions here till they get approved.

Medal 1
-Gray Fox- 25 pts
Neither enemy nor friend

Medal 2
-The Beast of Pirate's Bay- 50 pts
Help the Beast of Pirate's Bay

Almost forgot it, I couldn't find a place for the credits in the ending scenes, so, I made an entire room just for them. To reach the credits, just open the closet and click the "CREDITS" poster. Do it!!! They are pretty cool because I added an awesome song in it.
Really, go check them out, you may be surprised.

Ok, I don't know what else to say, and the description is kind of big already, so, just play the game and enjoy it so much or I'll be very mad at you.

And really, THANKS A LOT FOR PLAYING THIS THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!! ! !!!
(Also, sorry if the screen is too big)

Woah!! Daily 3rd!!! THANKS A LOT!!!
Front Page??? That's just too much for me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

I always love art games. I tend to normally prefer art games with a message and haven't enjoyed the emotion based ones as much however this game really taps into emotion brilliantly and I enjoy it more than ever. The first time I played the game I thought it was good but it wasn't until replaying it and experiencing the dreams that I really saw how great this game is. The dreams are so exciting and fun with the world being kind of bleak. Its tempting to ignore the real game and just live in the dreams lol. BTW the two songs in the game are hilariously awesome! I give you 5 Stars because in the context of what this game is trying to achieve it succeeds on every level.

Amazing game!

I honestly loved this game to the fullest extent, the music really set the atmosphere for most of the game(If anybody knows the song throughout most of the game please send it to me). I loved how you decided to go with the graphical design, it was very eye pleasing and again atmospheric. I also loved how the gameplay was presented, giving us the basic controls and then having us figure out what to do and where to go for the rest of the game.

I wish I could have understood the story a bit more but still I loved this game and please continue working! You have a gift and it should be embraced.

Very artistic

I noticed a lot of subtle symbols in this game.

Every time you get an apple, I notice the tree slowly withers away. Does the tree indicate how much the island is dying? I notice more of those wire-looking plants are growing after each apple (or am I mistaken?).

Every time Dolly throws an apple from the tree the apple is rotten, further indicating the tree is dying. But the apple is then refreshed and anew once rinsed from the water. Then you see Dolly getting holding a new apple afterward, is this her trying to bring life to the island?

In the "Good Girl" ending, she is abandoned by the people of the island. She cared for them, but they didn't care for her (Perhaps that is the reason why she moved out of the large house where the others live?). But Dolly cared for the apples. She had the seeds, where you implying that the death of the island was necessary for life to grow elsewhere?

In the "Bad Girl" ending, she smiles as she carries the apple with her underwater. Was the apple key to saving the island (and hence the reason why the people demanded the apple from her?)?

Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but I am eager to figure out what all this means. Perhaps the original artist could clarify? Or others could help me?

MasterMerol responds:

Woah, glad you noticed all those details, and yeah, the plants grow after each apple.
You know, every time she took an apple, the tree withers a bit more, and those plants keep growing up. When she takes the last apple, the tree dies completely, and then you can see the island covered by the plants. She wasn't really trying to bring life to the island.
