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.

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.

Dont even attempt to play this.

There are a few things wrong with this game. 1. Depending on where you click you will move to a different location even though you didnt click on an arrow. 2. Sometimes when you click to move forward, reading pops up and then you move back to where you just were, even though there is another location ahead. 3. many objects that you collect are very hard to find or even unidentifiable.

This game was over all just bad


bcdefg123 responds:

1. Arrows are not buttons. The actual button is the exit itself. The arrow is there so you actually know a given path is there.
2. The forest? That is intentional. Read the quote and you'll understand.
3. I assume point and click games are not your forte then.
