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.

Being an Avid Lovecraft fan, any hint of Lovecraft Here on newgrounds brings me great Joy. My enjoyment is doubled when the endeavor is actually GOOD. this game falls into the latter category. It is fantastic it held the atmosphere of the stories quite well and the puzzles were challenging to solve but not impossible. The story of the game was really well told with the scattered books on the floor and random Jottings this was truly something epic to behold.

Also seeing a Bust of H.P. Lovecraft in the library room brought a huge smile to my face! Well done. Please make more if you can! Lovecraft's mythos should not be relegated to one simple week ;)

It's such an amazing atmosphere you have here... Just look to the surroundings and you have the creeps ! Good God that was scary. Marvelous! If you put more times in it, I'm sure it will stay in Newgrounds' best point'n'click games . Also can you answer me : is the theme at the end when he reach the final castle is a "remix" of the anime "Elfen Lied" ? If so, can you tell me wher you get it ? Thanks

Yes, it is a remix from Elfen Lied. Look in the Author and File information for the link to the song. - Brian
