Thanks for the Frontpage! This one was for you!

I wanted to make something for Pico day but I couldn't think of what to make. So of course I had to make a text based game. Something inspired by countless hours playing Sarien.net games like King's Quest and The Black Cauldron.

-You can view the items in your inventory by holding the
[ctrl] button

-Play the game by pressing an arrow key to start moving, and
the same arrow key again to stop. Type things into the box
and press return. Type 'help' for a list of commands

-You can look at things or examine your surroundings by
typing things like "look rock" or you can just type "look"

-You can talk to people by typing things like "talk man" or
"talk darnell"

-You can obtain items by typing things like "get food"

-You can do stuff with items by typing things like "use map",
"give apple", "throw bat", or any other verbs before the
item you intend to perform that action on

-You can control the speed of the player by pressing - or +

-You can turn off the music by typing 'mute'

Make sure you look at everything and explore every inch the game or you probably won't be able to figure out how to beat it. I tried to dumb it down a bit, though.
Also, if you click off of the game screen and are coming back to it, you don't have to click on the text box to be able to type into it, just click anywhere on the game and focus will be brought to the text box. Isn't that cool?

Big thanks to all the people that tested it and helped me make it better. And if you find any bugs, PM me with the details. I would be most appreciative.

Played the game twice to get a perfect score!

A good game...weird...Hahaha...

Really good game...challenging...in its own way...
I really wanted that perfect score and collect all the items, so I finished the game twice...
And, *SPOILER* there are two ways to win the game...
I mean, really?! a Penicorn?!
Hahaha... I even looked it up on the internet...
Got the perfect score of 105...and got all the items...
Good RPG... will kinda bring down your spirit if you really don't put your patience in it...

Good game, great commands. I do hope that in the future, there are more functioning commands, larger map and a working map, too!, and more triggers and quests and events and stuff...

That's all... a good game!

simple fun

Its great to play a simple game once in a while with absolute zero replay value. The medals and text responses were entertaining although limited. I got full score and think I found all the medals (trolling, not funny, rapetastic, jerk...) but none of them show up in profile. It would have been nice to let people know I'm a pervert with the medal confirming it.
