EDIT: v1.1 submitted. v1.1 converts typing the combination into clicking, as was originally planned for. Most books and quotes are now manually exit-able, as requested by many. Also, most of the hotspots for movement are smaller and now only cover an area slightly bigger than the arrow. Plus a few other bugfixes.

Submitted for Newgrounds Game Jam 5. The game was made in three days, as with all the other Game Jam games.

The Outsider is a point-and-click adventure using only mouse controls. Click on items to interact with them or pick them up. Click on items in inventory to use them or combine them with other iventory items.

This is Team New World Order's entry into the Newgrounds Game Jam 5! The theme was literature, and we have adapted H.P. Lovecraft's short story The Outsider into a point and click adventure game. I had a blast working with Aigis and J-qb this past weekend, and we all had fun giving it our all.

There's really not a whole lot to say in terms of the game. We'll let it speak for itself. Any bug reports go to me. Near the end the game looked like it was about to fall apart, but thankfully my programming and Aigis's testing saved us from total failure. Nevertheless, there may be some remnants of the more uncommon bugs or glitches in there, but we know the game is perfectly playable.

Also, the original short story, The Outsider, is available to read online. Search for it.
