Simple point and click, similar to The Sagittarian.

This was a bit of an experiment, and I realize it might be a tiny bit more text heavy than some players might like. That's okay though, I had a good time making it, and it was a fun experience.

I was trying to think of a way to combine rpg dungeon crawl elements with fantasy book bodies of text. Originally it was going to track stats and all kinds of goodies, but it was conflicting with the story-telling elements of the text pretty heavily.

It's something I'd like to revisit in the future though, and maybe refine. I think a bit more art, and a bit less text would be good, but no so much as to destroy the idea.

Anyway, hope you guys like it, thanks for playing! And a special thanks to Newgrounds for helping me do this kind of thing. I really, really enjoy it!

If anyone has any trouble with the scoreboard let me know, it was acting up earlier, but is working for me now. (This is the first time I've tried using the scoreboard!)

A very good interacticve game. Lots of different decisions that ended most or less the same.
The idea of a scoreboard is quite unnecessary, beacuse you can simply skip the reading and keep pressing continue and random decisions that leads to points quickly. I suggest that the points are added only at the end, so once the game is started again, the points erase and starts over.


Hyptosis responds:

Well most of the points do erase, however if the player made a choice that had an exceptionally good outcome, like 10 percent of those points are stored for the next play through. So really, yeah, random clicking over and over for a long period of time can build up points, but you're a dork if you do that. Plus I needed to learn how to use the scoreboard, this game was my teacher. Thanks!

I found it a little too easy. I made it through with my whole party on the first attempt, just going with what seemed like the most logical decisions. After that I started screwing around making the oh so obviously wrong decisions to see what would happen. In the next game (which I really hope there will be one) you should make more decisions, and try to avoid having too many obvious choices.

I really enjoy "choose your own adventure" games, so this one really hit the spot. The re-playability is good, especially with medals. Graphics and music wise, it does remind me of the earlier "Skunk Meat" game.

Speaking of music, what is the name of Halindir's looped song?

Great game, but wish it was longer then this.


Hyptosis responds:

It seems to have been received better than I expected, perhaps I can go back and work on it more, make a more complete version. :P

I have a fond liking of text based adventures because they are partly responsible for my first experiences of learning how to read and comprehend as a child.
It's unfortunate that the younger generations cannot appreciate these as much. It takes an active imagination to truly enjoy these quests and get the most out of them.
Thank you for resurrecting a lost genre, and I certainly hope to see more of these from you in the future.
Perhaps a longer game with more twists and turns...

Thanks! As a kid I would read these books that let you pick paths that lead to specific pages. I loved them. ^_^
