Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


It feels good to be finally submitting this. I hope you all have fun! Merry Xmas. :3


The game should save automatically, but opening the map will do a manual write to the HD. This might cause a moment of lag on some computers. So, DON'T PANIC! lol

If you want to make sure your game saves, open the map before you quit. It should be fine even if you don't, but a tester had an issue so I threw a flush statement in as a failsafe. :3

A lovely little dream

I don't usually go out of my way to 100% complete any game, but the progression you've achieved here sparked that part of me that wanted to collect everything. A peaceful experience with many nice touches, diverse goals for the most part. However, it's a little frustrating towards the end as you try to find the last mushroom, open the last chest.

Because of this, I found the ending was slightly anticlimactic for the amount of effort I made to collect everything. Not so much a design flaw as a personal disappointment of my own affliction, but it would have been nice to feel more rewarded for the effort you invest in this flash game, whether in the form of a final challenge akin to the first William and Sly, or something else, perhaps something deeper, more significant regarding story and/or the characters.

This game, as a flash game, asks for quite a bit of time and effort from a player, but not too much, and I never really felt like just quitting. The game gave me reasons to spend the time, even more than the first game did. It pulls you in as you play.

Well done on the visual design too, it is very effective. The music fits well with the visual style as well, the two working together to create a peaceful atmosphere.

I enjoyed this game very much. Well done. :)

Beautiful little game, although the ending was a bit underwhelming after the journal entries seemed to be building toward more. One other technical note: although I found all the mushrooms/entries/etc. during my playthrough, the achievement for finding 50 mushrooms didn't unlock. I believe this is probably because there are cases where you can find two mushrooms simultaneously, and going from 49/100 to 51/100 may cause the achievement not to trigger.

I really like the dreamy atmosphere in this game, with the soft graphics and the shifts between music and ambience. Good job!
