EDIT: Thank you for the frontpage feature!

This is the sequel to the game "Playing With Letters".

Instructions are stated further down in the description.

The 'solution' to the first 'puzzle' is as follows:

"I understand"

More about that is in this news post, along with a hint about the secret ending:

(Also check it out if you're having trouble with the riddle).

This is a text-based puzzle game.
It is highly recommended that you play the original before you play this one, even though it's not absolutely necessary:

This game probably won't be easy to beat, but hopefully it'll be just as entertaining as its predecessor.

INSTRUCTIONS:

- press 'z' to progress in the game.

- press 'enter' to either give a solution, or to draw the next line of text if the screen is not yet filled.

- press 'backspace' to immediately draw out all the text on the screen in order to speed up the game, especially if you've taken a break and quickly want to get back to where you left off. Naturally, 'backspace' also deletes any text you've written.

You can usually find hints in the title of each level, or occasionally, even by hovering over the medals.

Please don't write any walkthroughs in the reviews.
This game is as much about the story, as it is about the gameplay.

As a bonus, if you want to watch me play the main theme, I recorded the process and uploaded a video of it:

I don't want to drag this description out any longer, so please...
Enjoy ^ ^

I'm still stuck on the Rotate level. There is so much going on in this level, I don't know what to look for.

Thank you for playing!
Well, let's just say that google is mentioned in that particular level for a reason :)
Things of the same color are also connected to each other ;)


It has a cool story I kinda fancy and the first one was good too.
It's been a bumpy ride... every victory was toughly won. And I'm a little bit stuck at the *Riddle me this* level. Could I hope for another hint at that? I can't seem to get it right no matter what... :(

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks a lot!
Yeah, I know the game is pretty tough, but I hope that makes every victory more enjoyable!

Okay, please don't get mad at me! I don't know yet whether I should add it to the description or not, but we'll see. Based on what a few people have told me, I'm guessing you've already more or less solved the riddle.

Before the answer, you need to write out a "the" (and of course a space). It's because the answer is a specific noun. I'm guessing that is why you got stuck! Hope it didn't take too much time.

If that wasn't it, then PM me, and I'll instruct you further ;)

Thanks for playing and for leaving a review! :D


This made me feel smart because I was able to figure everything out without too much trouble (besides the secret ending, I'll get to that eventually). This one was definitely harder than the first game, but I like how it was justified by the detective using a computer.
Normally I'm not interested in text-based games, but this one was really enjoyable. Nice work!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Hehhe, well since you were able to beat the game, chances are you are fairly smart ^ ^

The secret ending is a bit of a bitch, as it's pretty unfair. It's a bit meta I guess, but it's super cool once you get it :)
Not the ending itself, but realizing what it is, I should say.

Yeah, I think this one is a bit harder too! I'm glad you enjoyed it regardless. I'm super glad that you like this game, especially since you don't normally find yourself playing text-based games!

Thanks for playing, and for leaving a nice review :3


This game is way too hard if you've never played the original. I mean, it's clever, yeah, but sometimes the answers are just too specific.


LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks for playing!
The game is supposed to be difficult. After all, it actually says so in the description. The answers are specific, since that's what the entire game is based around, after all :)
It's not your typical text-based adventure, in that sense, I suppose :p


This is a great game. It's a little slow to start - the text crawls a little too slowly and personally was the most immersion breaking feature. I love the music, and how it's incorporated into the game. I don't want to say too much, but really this is a fantastic work of art.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you, Guthrie!

I agree the start is a bit slow, but it was pretty much unavoidable as this is a sequel. As for the text, people have told me different things about how the liked the speed, so I decided to keep it the same as in the last game, as it didn't seem to bother all too many people. However, I know that some people like to play the games faster, which is why I included a few options to speed up the text :)

I'm really glad to hear that you like the music!
Thanks again, both for playing, and for leaving a nice review :D
