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.

Style over substance is never a good decision.

Lets get the obvious past, this is not a fun game. Nothing about it is difficult, all the items are used once, and nothing is interesting. It uses one color, gray, and to be honest, I did not enjoy it. I noticed the end song was the music box version of lilium, and could not help but think the normal version would have been better. In summation, it was very underwhelming in my opinion, with simple brainless puzzles and no real story that would intrigue a mind.

Unforgivable mechanics

It's not bad but a point and click that registers movement on half the screen is downright torture. Only clicking on arrows should cause you to move. Seriously, this is a really bad blunder and i don't usually review harshly.

I felt that the quotations were annoyingly long and drawn out.... but good game!
