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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I am a big fan of point and click games but this game is absolutely amazing, one of the best in its category in my opinion.
The puzzles are clever.
The background music is a great, it really keeps me on the edge of my seat.

And the atmosphere is perfect. It fits the game perfectly.

This game is a piece of art, and to think you made this in 3 days is even more impressive.

If you would ever make a game like this again, i advice you to even put more time in it and make it even better!

Nonetheless this is a great game and it absolutely deserves 10 stars!

This was really good

As with others who reviewed, my one and only complaint is that I wish it were longer. However, the animation was great, the sound and music really fit the mood. I look forward to seeing more from you guys!
