UPDATE(22/01/2011):

Daily 2nd...? Oh my God, thank you so much for my first award!

UPDATE (21/01/2011):

I'm thinking of removing the scoreboard. First, some people already managed to hack the game and get impossible scores. Second, nobody really seems to manage to reach over 297. When you're playing a game with a scoreboard, you need to be prepared for any score. It's not exciting at all when everyone keeps "reaching the top of the board" with the same score. And third, you can submit an even higher score when playing on Experienced than Master, which is not fair at all...

In a few days, maybe tomorrow, I'll remove the scoreboard and fix some of the problems that people have mentioned.

IMPORTANT:
- In order to unlock the bonus paintings, you must solve the riddles flawlessly. Without any mistakes or hints.
- Please be patient... It'll take some time for the preloader to show up. It's a big file.
- Don't assume that I'm done with the game. I'll keep fixing the glitches and adding more.
- If you are sure you unlocked all the paintings but your painting count isn't 58/58 in the gallery, try going back to the main menu and enter the gallery again.
- In order to unlock the medal "Art historian", you must enter the gallery after having unlocked all the paintings.
- It's currently not possible to submit your rank to the scoreboard, but Mike's working on it.
- The first song after the main menu is "Sands of Saharah" by Wooormy. I think it was removed, and that's why I couldn't credit it.

Wow, I never thought I would finish this, but here it is: Riddles of Renaissance!

The instructions are simple. Read the riddle carefully and try to find out what it's talking about in the painting. Just point and click.

I know it's not a big game, but it took me a considerable amount of time to make it (to be precise; one year, one hour and sixteen minutes). I had to go through a lot, and, well, I learned a lot! In the end, it was well worth the wait.

The main purpose of the save system is for you to store your paintings, since there are over 50 of them. In case you are interested in reading their descriptions.

This game was inspired by the "Truth" riddles in Assassin's Creed 2. The riddles in Batman: Arkham Asylum also played an important role.

If you are having problems, check the "IMPORTANT" part of the commentary. If it's not there, don't be afraid to contact me.

All constructive criticism is appreciated. Feel free to correct me about grammar and spelling too; English isn't my native language.

Wonderful and Imaginative!

This was one of the best riddle games I've ever played, hands down. The music was beautiful, the riddles weren't too hard, and the use of docking only one point for hints was exceptional (I could really relax knowing my score wasn't going downhill fast). Some paintings were a bit hard to see due to being so pixelated, but nonetheless, it was very well put together. Also, you've done marvelously with your english, seeing as it isn't your native language. :)

@thiefraccoon (the guy below me): The author is NOT too bitchy. Imagine if you worked hard on a project and people pointed out the tiniest of mistakes. How would you feel? Don't call others bitchy when you are so rude yourself.

Intriguing

Great soundtrack for the background and great game!

I had but one suggestion. It's that in the gallery there is good use of leaving out the Grotesque Woman painting. I don't know why, but it almost made me sick or something. The rest are great with quite intriguing backgrounds.

Anyway, as far as the scoring system goes, I think it's a great way to compare how you add up. Screw all the score-upping addicts. I tried to get a higher score on consecutive tries only to achieve the "Obsessed" metal and find that it's indeed less rewarding to take credit for scores that you already have seen the answers to. Thanks again for all the time and effort. Really paid off.
