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.

Wow...

I've read a few Lovecraft short-stories. Mostly I found them odd and not really well put togeher, though a few really captured my imagination. Though I am grateful that I HAVEN'T read this short story, for that was one of the best reveals I've seen in a LONG time. I didn't expect that. That really, REALLY shook me to the core. I'm going to have to fish my collection of his stories out of my closet to read this, just amazingly well done.

P.S. Nice use of the music box version of Lillium, Elfan Lied was one of the first anime/manga I've ever read/watched and as soon as I heard the first notes of the song I had chills going down my spine, chills that were bolstered by the amazingly well done ending I mentioned before.

In summary, BRAVO!!!!!

Excellent

I sometimes need to point out that less is more. I've not been introduced to Lovecraft before, as I've read others mention in their posts. It was a very good pleasure to play this.

For obvious reasons, I won't send out the game itself, but this tutorial may help you (and anyone else) if you want to make a point-and-click game in AS3: http://www.aorchard.com/content/point -and-click-game-tutorial-flash-as30
