PLAY THE SEQUEL! Crypt Shyfter: Moonbright

Swords & magic. Warriors & wizards. Crypts & Shyfters! It's a Crypt Shyfter game!

Take on the role of a badass hero in Crypt Shyfter: Frostfall, a text adventure game set in the world of the Crypt Shyfter series.

It's the closest you'll get to having me as your Dungeon Master without actually playing D&D with me! Speaking of which....

Why not come play D&D with me? Shoot me a message and we'll set up a game on Roll20!

This is my first game! I made it with Twine :]

FRONTPAGED! Thank you!! :D

Special thanks to @Phronemophobia and @RatsLaugh for pointing out issues & typos. You guys helped make the game so much better!

Version 1.1

-Fixed the properties of the Magic Ring
-Added "Fullscreen Mode" to remove the need for scrolling. There is a link to enable full screen in the sidebar. To exit full screen, press ESC

(Update 2: Fullscreen may not work on all computers, and some passages may be cut off. The game can still be played at normal size on all PCs and devices. I'm working on a fix for this)



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love it! It's been awhile since I've played a text-based game. It reminds me of Homestuck, i didn't know it was possible for these kinds to happen, keep up the good work. This will probably be my inspiration for making my own textbased games in the future

This is such a fun game to play. Everything is very interesting in this game. It feels like I am on an adventure in a cave trying to escape and evade any obstacles that come in my way. Make more games like this. It's very compelling!!!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I never expected to say this, but I had so much fun with this text based game. Loaded with personality and humor, this game rewards it's players quite nicely for thinking outside the box. A wonderful experience for the short play time but plenty of replayability.

The fact that I was able to surprise and delight you with my text game brings joy to my heart and tears to my eyes :]

You are awesome, thanks for commenting!

Edit: also, I want tacos


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Well, having played the sequel, it is no surprise that this game was just as much fun, even if it had a few less options. It made no changes to the gameplay or the replay value. I only had to double back to a previous save with the frost giants, because I thought they would be friends of the big bad. Anyway, also managed to get all the magical items on my first play through, so that was awesome.
For people curious about playing this, a good rule of thumb is always hesitate to attack, and explore everything. A lot of the challenges in this game are beaten when you think things through. Oh, and choose the lock picks as your additional item: it will save you such a headache.
If you play it with some cunning, you'll get a fire sword, an ice shield, a lightning ring, and a Magneto helmet to protect your brain.
When I was offered a special weapon by the Kung Fu Space Barbarian, I chose the spaghetti, and the scene that followed was hilarious. I love the sense of humor in this game, as it really offered something fun for the player.
There's so much replay value in this game, that I have to give it top marks, all around. Bravo!
