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.

Aw, I remember this story! I didn't read the description, but started to remember the story as I was playing through the game. This was really well done, but a bit easy. Still, very fun, although I wish his face hadn't been shown at the end; I think the quote from the story alone would have been better.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

It's a good story, but probably would've been better as a short story or a graphic novel than a video game. It was a little short, too bad it couldn't have been a little longer...

I loved it.

I've never read the story "The Outsider" but after playing this, it really makes me want to go out and read it. I really loved the way how the artwork and music of the game really made you feel the anxiety and panic that the main character must of felt as well. The ending was a real twist, but I'm not going to go and ruin it for everyone else. Great game, and seeing as you guys made it in three days, you should be proud. Awesome Job, and keep up the good work!
