Thank you for your patience.


Daily 2nd...? Oh my God, thank you so much for my first award!

UPDATE (21/01/2011):

I'm thinking of removing the scoreboard. First, some people already managed to hack the game and get impossible scores. Second, nobody really seems to manage to reach over 297. When you're playing a game with a scoreboard, you need to be prepared for any score. It's not exciting at all when everyone keeps "reaching the top of the board" with the same score. And third, you can submit an even higher score when playing on Experienced than Master, which is not fair at all...

In a few days, maybe tomorrow, I'll remove the scoreboard and fix some of the problems that people have mentioned.

- In order to unlock the bonus paintings, you must solve the riddles flawlessly. Without any mistakes or hints.
- Please be patient... It'll take some time for the preloader to show up. It's a big file.
- Don't assume that I'm done with the game. I'll keep fixing the glitches and adding more.
- If you are sure you unlocked all the paintings but your painting count isn't 58/58 in the gallery, try going back to the main menu and enter the gallery again.
- In order to unlock the medal "Art historian", you must enter the gallery after having unlocked all the paintings.
- It's currently not possible to submit your rank to the scoreboard, but Mike's working on it.
- The first song after the main menu is "Sands of Saharah" by Wooormy. I think it was removed, and that's why I couldn't credit it.

Wow, I never thought I would finish this, but here it is: Riddles of Renaissance!

The instructions are simple. Read the riddle carefully and try to find out what it's talking about in the painting. Just point and click.

I know it's not a big game, but it took me a considerable amount of time to make it (to be precise; one year, one hour and sixteen minutes). I had to go through a lot, and, well, I learned a lot! In the end, it was well worth the wait.

The main purpose of the save system is for you to store your paintings, since there are over 50 of them. In case you are interested in reading their descriptions.

This game was inspired by the "Truth" riddles in Assassin's Creed 2. The riddles in Batman: Arkham Asylum also played an important role.

If you are having problems, check the "IMPORTANT" part of the commentary. If it's not there, don't be afraid to contact me.

All constructive criticism is appreciated. Feel free to correct me about grammar and spelling too; English isn't my native language.

bug, IDK if it's your fault

The riddles are good, but it's hard to play because I'm constantly getting a "connecting to Newgrounds gateway" message which remains over a large portion of the screen...aside from that, it's pretty fun

It's not my fault. Probably just your internet connection.

Very intresting

very good but some of them seem a bit hard.
like the butcher in the 2nd to last one was hard. i had to look it up on Google so i could see a clearer image of it! and that one of the stripping of Jesus was really hard!
that man must have dislocated his shoulder to point at him in that position!
besides that, i find this a very game of art and puzzle

You pick good works of art, but they are hard to see.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Interesting idea

There's only so much you can do in a point and click game and you've managed to do them all. Good pacing, simple enough, fitting music and handy hints. As someone who didn't know most of the paintings it can get a little frustrating. 9/10 because there were a few pics that came out pixelated and you couldn't see the details needed to solve the riddles. Other then that, you can see that you put a lot of time and effort into the game ... congrats on the game and I look forward to any more you do
